The Toxic TRUTH About The Beauty Industry with Gregg Renfrew

She’s also built a movement of women who are pushing back against the beauty industry and trying to build a company that demands we all deserve better.​ If you’re looking for more inspiration and words of wisdom, then please sign up for my free weekly email newsletter - The Sunday Paper.
