Bastard technology... Love your site, your skin, and your brilliant sense of humour...Q for you if this is ok - for combination skin with a bit of sensitivity, wd you recommendHydraluron or Kate Somerville Quench serum for under an SPF? Melasma means daily SPF slathering of my face in my Aussie climate. I use Mecca Cosmetica 30+ (truly gorgeous btw)Also wanted to let you know (if your readers didn't already) that Hydraluron and Eysilix are apparently stocked at Priceline here in Australia! No PeptaBright yet - the sods - but if I see it I'll report back...Kat x
Quench would be too much. Annoyingly Pepta-bright is the one you prob need! Hydraluron needs top go under a moisturiser - not just an SPF - unless I got that bit wrong from your comment?
Hi Caroline, i have a really teeny weeny quik question.. Im gona be spending a few months in india this xmas n new years, and wanted to know how best to store my skincare products?! Obviously with it beinf hot and humid i wud be heart broken for all my expensive skincare to go to waste n get ruined by the climate. Is it ok to store most products in the fridge? As even ghem being inside drawers they would catch the heat :( ;( Thanks a bunch..Ps - i lOVE YOU ;)
Fridges are perfect. And travel bags for medication if you have natural/organic stuff that will go off quicker?
I have Rosacea. For years I thought purging was the way forward. For the first time since I don't know when I have nothing more than slightly pink cheeks. The double cleanse (hot cloth cleanser on the second) and quality gentle products are what everyone's skin needs. Don't purge your skin, pamper it
I have Rosacea & spent years trying purging products. From bitter experience I can say, a double cleanse (using a cloth) is all the purging my skin needs. Take it from me, red irritated bumpy skin is not a good look
I love Caroline's blog no doubt!!! Will always check in... BUT ... I feel like Caroline doesn't respond as much and therefore doesn't care as much for her blog... I know she has other things going on and therefore this is no longer a priority... very very very sad, especially after all of the exposure on pixiwoo and dedicated followers that have come like myself:-(
Hi Sierra,I assure you I care - but this is not a 'pro' blog - and I have to do the work that feeds my kids as a priority. It's really that simple.HOWEVER!II now have an amazing PA so will have more time to comment/interact - it's the best part of the blog for me!
Hi Caroline, do you have a recommendation for a good facialist in London who does extractions? I have relatively good skin aside from these annoying bumps around my chin. They look horrid in the light and inadvertently become inflamed and become a huge nasty spot that takes forever to heal. I have tried exfoliation, both chemical and physical and I don't qualify for bad enough skin to go on antibiotics/roaccutane. I am on topical retinoids that help, but I miss having smooth skin!
It sucks that the comments are removing themselves, however I doubt that a mobile operating system can have anything to do with deleting other people's comments.
No it was the bloody slow response to Google so that when I hit Publish - it had switched to screen before, highlighted the whole page and turned to 'Remove content'!!! I nearly did it again yesterday. Lesson learned!!
Regarding the post previously by Sierra that Mrs Hirons doesn't "care" as she should about her blog readers and her "success" has been gained greatly because of her devoted readers and followers. Yet now Mrs Hirons isn't as responsive to these readers or beholden is how I took the comment. Mrs Hiron was extremely successfulBefore her blog "blew up" in popularity among expanding readership. I doubt she started the blog to gain to notoriety, wealth, etc. I am a Southern Belle from Mississippi - highly educated and an extreme love of skincare, cosmetics, fashion. Right is right no matter what side of the world you live on. And it rubbed me wrong to read such a comment. Why does society always make successful people feel beholden to the supposed "community" that created them and or their success?" Mrs Hirons value doesn't lie in the fact that readers flock to her site. It lies in her ambition and mostly her ABILITIES as an expert in her field. Readers did NOT create her opinions, views, success. Her desire to share her knowledge in the name of transparency and sheer enjoyment of the subject matter she addresses is the value here. She owes no debt to her readers. In fact we owe her as we've benefited greatly from her work, education, research, experiences, etc. we readers have reaped an enormous payout in relation to the benefits we gain from this blog compared to what Mrs Hirons earns. There is no debt for Mrs Hiron to give back or be repaid as she took nothing away from those of us who freely read her blog. Did we readers contribute to her "rise?" Maybe. Perhaps. If so, then that small contribution from readers pales in comparison to the fact she has achieved her success by her own merit in the industry before we all got to know her blog. And remember folks this blog is for our benefit and enjoyment! All of us who patronize this blog along with Mrs Hirons come here on our own accord with no one forcing us to read or write. We all exchange value for value. Mutual benefit, personal enjoyment, free trade, without force or fraud, is the exchange of value for value. Same here on the blog cause its a "trade" whereby both parties gain. We all have a life, I hope, that is fulfilling with family, friends, hobbies, careers. Enjoy this blog for what it is. Be grateful to benefit from not only Mrs Hirons knowledge and opinions but the sharing and exchange of everyone who comes here as a community with similar interests. Nothing more. Nothing less. Thank you Mrs Hirons for your time and sharing with so many strangers. We all wish you continued success, happiness, health, good fortune, and Great Skin!
Wow. Thank you so so much. I don't even know what else to say. Thank you. I truly appreciate it. Cx

Hi Shenelle,It wouldn't be my first choice... Sorry it took me so long to reply!Cx
Hi Caroline! I really need help on revamping my skin regime as my face isn't improving by much. I've an oily to combination skin, blackheads and a serious case of whiteheads on my forehead. It doesn't help I've quite big pores on my cheeks. Can you recommend me products to help clear these problems? I'd want to find a way to repair my skin without leaving long lasting damages.
Hi Caroline, I have a P50 question, I'm 24 too btw.I have sensitive/dehydrated skin and worked my way up from p50w to the regular P50 (the one without the phenol) and have been using it for the past year and love it,.However, I have noticed when I follow it with Darphin's Intral toner, my face goes BRIGHT red, gets hot, looks inflammed. It's so weird because it doesn't happen when I use either toner alone, and it doesn't happen when I follow p50 with something like Clarins Chamomile toner, only the Darphin Intral toner. Is that because I should be using P50v, for sensitive skin? How do I fix it? I asked a specialist at a spa i go to that sells p50, and she said the second toner was redundant and I should not use it (I could hear you say, "Rubbish!).
