Outspoken Beauty is the UK's most honest, straight talking beauty podcast featuring interviews with an array of celebrities, editors and influencers in the beauty industry. Hosted by beauty journalist and broadcaster Nicola Bonn and beauty novice Rachel Jones. Expect fierce debate, candidness and the very best product recommendations.
In this special bonus episode with Dermalogica, the lovely Georgia Toffolo joins me almost a year after our first episode to talk about how her journey to skin confidence is going.
If you heard our first episode together, Toff talked openly about how her acne has not only been physically painful but has also had an effect on her mental health. Slowly though she has come to terms with it and when we last spoke, she had gone makeup free on national TV which was a huge challenge for her at the time.
She's in an amazing place now and her confidence levels have gone through the roof. She is one of the faces of a groundbreaking new Dermalogica campaign where she goes totally makeup free once again and talks openly and honestly about her journey to feeling happy in her skin.
In this episode we talk about why the Dermalogica Campaign is so special and groundbreaking, how Toff now feels happy to show people her acne scars and why healthy, glowy skin with texture is something we should all embrace. Forget flawless and so called perfect skin....now it's all about loving the skin you're in and being a true Skindividual!
In this episode I'm joined by a woman who I instantly clicked with. It's the wonderfully honest, open and funny Estee Lalonde (she had me snorting with laughter). Our conversation takes many twists and turns and covers a whole range of topics from the power of a bath to pubic hair to great skincare as a preference to makeup to vaping CBD.
Later in the episode I talk about the breathing technique I use to overcome my anxiety, an amazing perfume that sadly didn't last on my skin and a truly fantastic new night time serum.

This is one of my favourite interviews of all time. Hollywood actress and entrepreneur Noomi Rapace (Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) joins me for an incredibly honest and fascinating conversation about the politics of Hollywood beauty and how she has no shame in being really vocal and fighting these ideals.
Noomi, who has recently launched a breathtaking perfume collection, also talks about her powerful relationship with scent and how she wears a different fragrance for every new character that she takes on.
There's so much more to the interview and I just can't wait for you to get to know this incredible woman.
Later on I talk about some of the best products that I've been testing recently.

Zanna Roberts Rassi is the co-founder of Milk Makeup and this is her story of big opportunities in London, true love in New York and the creation of a brand with no boundaries that has in so many ways been a leader in the current beauty revolution. (A revolution that says we can be who we want and wear what we want).
After my amazing chat with Zanna I'll tell you about the best foundation I've ever used, an excellent hyaluronic acid and my naughty little beauty habit.

Tamara is an easygoing and really down to earth woman and I hope you enjoy getting to know the real her.

The lovely Dr Sam is back for another episode and with summer round the corner she’s here to tell us EVERYTHING we need to know about sun protection.
Sam is passionate about this subject and if you are in any way confused about what protection you should be using, where and when, she’s got all the answers and more.
Later in the episode I review some products from the Revitalash range and also talk about a rather stingy magnesium oil.
For more about Dr Sam have a look at her website. I also swear by her skincare line…it’s one of the best!
