About the Hosts

Trina Renea, L.E.Profile Photo

Trina Renea, L.E.

The Skin Master

Co-host | When Trina Renea became an esthetician she realized the key to success was lifelong learning - a goal that sets her apart from most skin care practitioners. 

For over 30 years, she’s explored the fields of cosmetic chemistry, medical esthetics, dermatology, and plastic surgery, becoming an expert in a wide expanse of professional skin care brands, equipment, and treatments. She is a member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists with three certifications in cosmetic sciences from UCLA and continues to attend spa, medical, esthetic, and scientific conferences worldwide.

Now considered a skin master due to her broad expertise, Trina is a consultant to the Southern California beauty industry and medical esthetic community, selecting and training staff, developing treatments, guiding product selection, and helping professionals best serve their clients. 

In 2004, she founded the Facial Bungalow, a clinical spa offering advanced skin care technologies where she continues to work one-on-one with clients to this day. In 2008 she created Trina Renea Skincare.

Julie Falls

The Highly-Educated Consumer

Co-host | From the surf of Miami to the hills of Hollywood, Julie Falls spends her days working in the entertainment industry and the rest of her time questing after all things skin throughout Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and anywhere her job takes her. She is the ultimate super-curious and highly-educated consumer our listeners can relate to - making her the perfect counterpart to the rest of the Facially Conscious team. Known as Julie.com (@juliefdotcom) to her friends, she knows way more than she should for someone who’s never gone pro. In fact, for every skin care product, procedure, ingredient, or tool out there, there’s a good chance Julie’s already looked into it. If there’s a question about skin or skin care, Julie.com’s the one to ask it - and the highly skilled pros at Facially Conscious are the ones to answer.

The Beverly Hills Dermatologist

Now the derm-in-chief, she sees thousands of patients a year, each one unique in their own way. She has consulted in product, procedure, and treatment development for successful medispas and skin care brands has appeared as an authority on infomercials and TV shows and has published articles on everything from the effects of the sun and its harmful rays to eyelid dermatitis and topical steroid addiction. Dr. Vicki is dedicated to bringing honest, clear-cut facts to our Facially Conscious listeners - info that could cost hundreds if she shared it during an appointment in her office.

At the forefront of many of our most popular skin care trends (AHAs, barrier repair, multi-antioxidants, pollution protection, free-from lists, blue light protection, peptides, microbiome, epigenetics, bespoke, and on and on) as well as one of the original cosmetic science communicators and ‘myth-busters’, she has received numerous awards for her work as an educator, journalist, skin researcher, and product developer - including being named the first Marketing Fellow of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (FSCC) and the 13th licensed esthetician in California. During her 55-year career, she has been a leader in the growth of skin care from a luxury reserved for the rich to a 'must' for anyone with skin. She has developed over 1500 cosmetic products sold nationally and internationally in the spa, medical, on-air, direct, and natural product channels, published over 600 articles in consumer and professional journals and scientific texts, and taught the ground-breaking cosmetic science program at UCLA to thousands of industry professionals worldwide. Retiring from skincare in 2015, this passionate truth-teller has come back to address the exorbitant amount of misinformation plaguing the cosmetic sector, online and off. In 2023, Rebecca returned to teach the cosmetic science program at UCLA and is now Director of Product Development and Education at YG Laboratories, the company from which she retired as CEO in 2015.
