Catch-up, thank you's and the final 12 Days Giveaway winners..

First things first, I've just come back from up North where my Nana is 'comfortable and stable'. Frankly she looks anything but to me, but there we are. We've been here before and she has always rallied - but as time goes on it's harder and harder to judge the situation...hence my quick departure and absence on here.

I want to say a massive 'thank you' to all of you who sent prayers and good wishes, my family and I are hugely appreciative of your support.

Secondly: I jumped on the PC under my daughter's sign-in and thus had to search my name on Google to find the blog - something I've never had to do before. I had no idea that so many of you have mentioned me in your blogs/on You Tube - thank you. And thank you to those of you that have defended me and the blog on some less-than-flattering threads I've seen (bleaches eyes). As my very sensible husband says, 'You put yourself out there with opinions and thus you make yourself a target. That comes with it.' I would just say this in my defense: I have never received a 'kickback' from a brand (EVER), I'm not a slob and I DO have good skin. Alrighty then.

Moving on!

Rather than post all of these separately just for the sake of driving traffic to the blog, I think you've already waited long enough - again, sorry about that!

The remaining winners are:

Paul Mitchell: Beccy Evans

Cult Beauty: Olivia G

Indeed Labs: Orla McLaughlin

Beauty Bay: Adriana Adu

Pixi: Caroline (CAC612)

Beauty Works West: Hannah Stone-Coward

REN: Heather Adair

Sunday Riley: Stefanie from Queens

And Prtty Peaushun: Ali ( in a wheelchair for 5 years), Little Goddess (who is going to die if she doesn't win - we can't have that), Sarahlb - and PP decided to give an extra one to Ilke - who wanted to give her prize to Ali (first winner) if she was to win. Now you don't have to - you have your own coming. :)


If you have won please email info @ carolinehirons.com with your full postal address.
Please give us this week to organise and forward etc - I'm away for 3 days and may not be able to send the details to the brands straight away.

Thank you to everyone who entered. And thanks again for your support.

  1. congratulations to all winners :)
    And sending you love and good thoughts in regards to your situation with your Nana <3

    I also brag about you on my blog here i Bergen Norway :)


    I also wanna ask you
    i LOVE Emma Hardie cleansing balm, but I ended up with perioralt dermatitis
    Obviously not due to the product, but after leaving it alone for abt 3 weeks I tried it again and I broke out. I hate this I might have to give it away :(
    Any suggestions?
    I love the balm cleansers ( oily skin and dehydratet top layer,my skin never looked better, but it was itchy and bothering me also in the chin area with Emma Hardie)

    Im about cruelty free and as little as possible chemicals.
    I love pai and their exfoliater was amazing, but wasnt Emma.......:(

    Thank you

    1. Had the same problem with the Emma Hardie balm, but the Oskia or the REN Rose Centifolia balm cleansers work very nicely for me.

  11. First of all, sending love for Nana and secondly just to let you know that your blog is the first thing I check every morning after taking my gorgeous sprogs to school. Seeing that there is a new post makes me feel genuinely uplifted :D . Having been through some pretty crap times, I am fully aware that a beauty blog cannot eliminate poverty nor change the world, but it CAN help this ex alcoholic feel great about herself. Which is something. Thankyou x

  23. Hi Caroline,

    I am considering purchasing Michael Todd True Organics - Blue Green Algae Anti-Bacterial Toner (Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice, Ascophyllum Nodosum (Organic Kelp) Extract, Aphanizomenon Flos Aquae (Organic Blue Green Algae) Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Salix Nigra (Black Willowbark) Extract, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai Fruit) Pulp Powder, Sodium Chloride (Dead Sea Salt), Polysorbate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Essential Oil, Sodium Benzoate, Glucolactone, Citric Acid, Lavendula Angustifolia (Certifed Organic) Hydrosol.)

    I just want to know if this is okay to use it after using the REN Clarifying Toing Lotion. Is Michael Todd belong to the hydrating toner?

    Many thanks.

    Jacinda:)

  24. Negative comments? Who dares leave such nastiness on the Queen of skincare's blog?! Rude.

    Caroline, Mrs Hirons :) , I'm traveling to London for a few days on Monday (I'm from Sweden) - is there anything (skincare or other) you recommend me getting which I may not be able to get here/elsewhere? (And don't worry, I have hydraluron written down.) And what do you think of the retinol reface from indeed for 22 year old semi-dry acne prone skin?

  25. Reading this "less-than-flattering threads I've seen (bleaches eyes)" makes me angry, not a little but a lottle, I am going to have a peppermint tea and calm down. Seriously!!!! Love Cartmanda xxx
