    1. Hey Talisa,

      Check out the confernce website here:

      Book before this Friday 7th June to get the Super Earlybird Discount! Feel free to email for further info.

  2. This is probably a really stupid question haha but do you have to be invited or do you just turn up to watch? xx

    1. Hi Louise,

      Tickets are available to purchase at

      Hope to see you there!

  3. since you just posted and you said the best time to get a response is when you are on-line, i thought i would try to snag you:) i haven't used a flannel for YEARS and YEARS but have gone back to them after finding your blog - my face thanks you. just a quick question...does the type of flannel matter? should i be springing for more expensive ones or are the 6 for 4 pounds kind fine as well? thanks for this blog! it is so informative and interesting.

    1. Check out her 'cheat sheet' on cleansing on the right side - she says all flannels are OK, even Primark ones.

    2. thanks SO much for pointing that out. i had been trying to work backward through all of her posts amnd hadn't gotten to that one yet.

  4. Unrelated, BUT I am sure I saw you yesterday at the intercontinental and wish wish wish I said hi but I didn't want to interrupt your lunch (not that I was going to ask you any skin questions!) but when you asked if there was any shellfish in something and I turned round and saw you I was on the edge of my seat wanting to jump up! I just wanted to say how wonderful you are, not quite the same but I will say it here anyway ;)

  5. This is hilarious as I am one of those who loooooonged to contact you but thought, no this lady is far too busy to answer your skin questions. I have ordered the Emma Hardie cleansing balm from Bath and Unwind, (it's out of stock, I wonder why). I am searching for a good moisturizer for oily t zone, my skin has sun damage too, I'm 55! I follow Sam and Nic and that's how I found you. Your advice is so practical, so thank you for taking the time to write your blog for those of us who really don't know what we're doing, but want to! Keep it up, it's very much appreciated. PS, bought myself some flannels from Primark hee hee

  6. Hey, I will try contacting you since I am really desperate at the moment and I'm sure you would be able to help ;) Ever since I moved to the UK (6 months ago) my skin got completly out of control- i never had perfect skin (suffered from occational break outs) but I has never been that bad, I have oily/combination and dehydrated skin (apparently), however, since I moved here everything changed. I desperatly tried different products, even using the oil cleansing method which ended in an even more disasterous skin. Since I didn't change my diet (healthy, no dairy, sugar only very very occationally) I thought it could be the hard water since I am not used to this. And since I started using bottled water on my skin it calmed down a lot but the breakouts are still coming...I am using an oil based cleanser (Weleda Almond facial cleanser) and for moisturizing I switch between Effaclar Duo and pure aloe vera gel since these seem to be the only things that don't break me out at the moment. I've also been trying liquid gold the last 2 weeks (every other night) and the reaction was weird- on the one hand it left me with really wonderful skin but at the same time it seemed to irritate it slightly and causing small bumps (no breakouts)... very weird. So sorry for the long post but I really have no idea what to do?! stop with the liquid gold, switch to another cleanser??? any advice I would be happy with :)

  7. Caroline, I discovered your blog just weeks ago before the Pixiwoo nuke that occured that is obviously filling your inbox! A real quickie here if I may - I'm off to NYC in 2 weeks. What is worth getting my dirty mitts on that I can't get hold of in the UK? My main concerns are adult acne, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles as I am hitting 37 soon and am still getting ID when buying wine (the goal is up to I'm 40!). My skin is behaving, although I suffer occasionally from acne and I'm getting expression lines plus I have noticed pigmentation (scars will not heal as quickly as they used to). I use Liquid Gold and Medik8 vit A, and use assorted moisturisers (Clarins, Aromatherapy Associates, Neal Yards, La Roche Posay, Alpha-H - dependent on the mood of my skin). I am unfortunately a foamy cleanser user and will shop to change my ways (promise, cross my heart, etc, etc), maybe something from the States will encourage my ways?
    Grateful for your fountain of wisdom. x

    1. I second this! Heading to the US from Australia and would love to know what to stock up on whilst I'm there, although my skin concerns are hormonal acne and dehydration. Also since I'll be going in the middle of winter what moisturisers do you recommend that won't break me out? Currently using coconut oil all over the face but I'm not sure if that will be suitable for the climate? Thanks :)

    2. Coconut oil is pore clogging!! Jojoba oil is apparently not, but each skin is diff :)

  8. Ah - too expensive for us mere mortals :) Good luck!

  9. Do you have a blogpost for sensitive dry skin or a skincare routine for dry sensitive skin? Please reply, excellent blog by the way :)

  10. Hi, Caroline. Thank you so much for all you do. This should hopefully be a quick question. I'm trying to build a skin care regime, and I was wondering if you could take a look and let me know if these are the right products/if any are extraneous ones.

    I've been reading through your blog and came up with the following candidates for purchase as budget allows:

    * Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm - cleanser
    * Clarins Skin Beauty Repair Concentrate - serum
    * Hydraluron - treatment
    * Eysilix - eye cream
    * P50W or Liquid Gold Prep and Prime - exfoliating toner
    * La Roche Posay Serozinc - moisturizing toner
    * Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream - moisturizer
    * Moisturizing mask - haven't found a specific one yet
    * Clay mask - haven't found a specific one yet

    Information About My Skin: I'm 26, Asian (pale-skinned), and have very sensitive skin. I also have Eczema, Seborrheic dermatitis (in the summer), and Perioral Dermatitis (fairly controlled). My skin is often very reactive to new products. My current routine involves Free and Clear Liquid Cleanser, Cerave Lotion, and prescription creams (Protopic, Ketokenazole, and Metronidazole) as needed.

    What are your thoughts? Any advice would be very much appreciated.

  11. Hello Caroline!

    I would love to know what you think about MD Formulations? Good or bad? Yes or no?


  12. Enjoy the conference :)! Sorry for hyjacking this thread, but can't find where to contact you!

    I'm 21 years old and I have moderate acne, skin prone to scars, dehydrated skin before I started my routine (I use a lot of moisturizing products - because I feel they are the best way to get the beneficial ingredients for my skin, and because my skin gets very flaky due to bha and general dehydration. However, I'm unsure if this is making my acne worse, and if so what should I switch up to in your opinion :)? My acne is still occurring, though much smaller, and it's really annoying, because the rest of my skin looks pretty phenomenal right now lol!

    Okay, this is my routine;

    Clinique Rescue, anti-oxidant moisturizer for dry to very dry skin at night, topped with almond oil
    In the morning I use Oilithium moisturizer and a few spritzes of Reviva Lab's Rosewater Facial Spray (things such as rosewater, glycerine, aloe vera, a Clay mask once a week (I use Aztec healing clay; which is amazing!, omega 3 capsles daily, Peter Thomas Roth Uberdry sunscreen, Paula's choice BHA lotion every other evening. I'm going to start cleansing in the morning a night as per your rec (thanks for recommending great cleanser's had such an issue trying to find some without poor ingredients in them!)(previously used a plant based oil cleanser to remove makeup). I also use rosehip oil a couple of times a week :).

    I ADORE your blog :) - makes me sit up and listen, and laugh - aha :) thank you!!

  13. I'd love to go there but it is too far from here in France. I know you will do a great talk because of your great experience. Looking forward to see a post about the event. I wish you all the success you deserve. Thanks!
