This week, Leigh’s giving us a science lesson on our skincare.

If you’ve ever heard big beauty words like cosmeceutical or pharmaceutical, but have no clue what they mean, this episode is for you.

Leigh explains exactly what cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products are, what they do and the differences between the two.

And if you're struggling with which products to put first in your skincare regime, we go back to basics and tell you the correct way to place your products.

Plus in our Spendy Savey segment Kelly pulls out an old favourite which you'll find in the makeup case on every photo shoot
