Hello what do you think about ceramic slip from sunday riley ? Thanks lovely
Obviously not Caroline but she mentioned that she liked in in her video with Pixiwoo and I think she has mentioned it on the blog before. I have combination skin and I find it a bit drying to use on a daily basis but if you're feeling particularly greasy it's good as a morning/second cleanse. Hope you don't mind me intervening Nicolas/Caroline!
Thanks to you louisa ! Cheers from France 😀
Also not Caroline lol. Since it's different for everyone I thought I'd mention I adore this cleanser. I use a nice thick oil at night ( alternating the Sunday Riley ones) so I've never experienced any dryness but it has really helped with breakouts. Hope that's helpful!
Last week the Telegraph reported that NPD Group sales figures in the UK show that cleansers and masks were the fastest growing skincare category of 2014, reaching double digit growth.... I blame you! Another great vid, LadyH!
What would you recommend for some great first cleansers to remove make-up?

HI Caroline I have good but oilyish skin ( not acne prone in the slightest), please could you recommend a nice lightweight, non greasy but hydrating enough moisturiser ( around £30). I am currently using Decleor hydrafloral light but still find this bit too rich and heavy and make up won't hold up and also Dermalogica active moist which is fantastic for make up lasting but do not find it hydrating enough. I have tried to look but most lightweight moisturisers say for acne prone/ oily skin and also mattifying but as I'm not acne prone I find them not hydrating and certainly don't want matte skin and another's are to heavy. Please HELP ME, choosing a moisturiser is giving me a headache 😣, just want something inbetween, I would be so grateful for a replyCheyenne.
my skin sounds identical to yours! I love clinque moisture surge gel cream:)
My skin is similar to yours and I use thebodyshop vit e aqua boost.
I always get super excited with new videos =) I have oily congested skin, so I'm looking forward too trying out the Ultimelt.
What second cleanser would you recommend for an acne prone skin?
Can I please request a sequence that includes face masks, as in would you cleanse and use an acid before a mask or would you forgo the acid, or only if its a certain kind of mask? Could you would you use several types in one day or is that a step to far, ta muchly x
I agree this would be great
Yes please this would be great! :)
I have the exact same question. Doesn't apoear she's answering questions though :/ Can anyone else help answer this?Acid toner before mask?Mask before acid toner?Skip acid toner if using a mask?Thank you to anyone who helps answer this.
REN clearcalm cleanser is absolutely amazing I found it thanks to Caroline I would recommend and about acid toner before mask it will be good to use as your skin will absorb the goodness from the mask better 😉
I am 36 years old; who has always oily skin (not acne prone) just very shinny skin. I always exercise, I eat healthy, I don't drink Alcohol (well, occasionally), I drink more green tea than coffee. My skin has always been great, been taking care of it since I was 18. But it has turned into this mess, oily/dehydrated/flaky/bumpy/itchy/tight especially right on my cheek bones, it’s my own fault, trying to get rid off the oil, I have damaged it. My pores are big or I guess I notice them more now, I can see my dark spots everywhere. Went to my GP, she prescribes Hydrocortisone, which made my skin even worse, tighter and I was peeling, so I stop using it. Recently (approx 2 wks) I started taking wild salmon Omega 3, Fish oil Omega 3, vitamins E, C, and Alfalfa. I am drowning myself with water (not really, but seriously, my water intake has increased). My skin regime has change, I am following the steps you recommend in your blog; cleansing balm, tonic acid, eye cream, serum, oil and moisturizer, (thanks to my local Sephora and free samples! Hooray, I am not embarrass to admit it, can’t afford to spend money on products that I don’t know how are going to work on my skin) I even found Indeed Labs products at my local pharmacy which I got too (I bought them, not free samples there urggg LOL, I am already in love with them). I haven’t seen any noticeable changes yet, crossing my fingers! My question is, how long should I wait to start to see results? Or should consider a professional peeling instead? Is a professional peeling going to solve my rough ugly dry patches? Or what products you highly recommend for my problematic skin? So I can go and get samples, LOL Pls help….
Hi Caroline. Your so knowledgable and thank you for sharing!! I don't wear makeup per se (usually just a bb cream (with built in spf), mascara and blusher) and I don't reapply during the day. Do I need to double cleanse in the evening or will one cleanse suffice? Thank you x
Not Caroline, but if you're using SPF, you need to double cleanse. SPF products are designed to adhere well to the skin and need some elbow grease to remove! I found a single cleanse when I had any SPF on would cause breakouts because I couldn't get it all off my face in one go. Hope that helps. :-)~El
Thanks! That's the thing though - I don't break out if I only cleanse once (using "take the day off" at the moment). But don't like to think that my face isn't properly clean and I suppose just because I'm not breaking out doesn't mean it's properly cleansed. It's just that by the end of the day there doesn't even seem to be a trace of the bb cream left on my face!
Hi Caroline!I know you've done a post on 1st/2nd cleanses but I'm still not sure when a 2nd cleanse is necessary. If I'm wearing the Chantecaille Just Skin, some powder and mascara, would you do a pm second cleanse? Not sure if I'm overworking my skin. Thank you!
I'm in Australia and have never heard or seen Black Chicken skincare so will seek it out. Thank you!
Yes! Face masks would be great! Especially for deep pore cleaning
Any thoughts on the Clarins Gentian milk cleanser for oily acne prone skin?
If you're watching the ££, could you use the Emma Hardie balm as a morning cleanser and for the double cleanse in the evening? Think you touched on this in the video. Thank you 😊😊
Great video, thank you. When you say that you don't want to wash things down the sink, doesn't the bulk of the second cleanser get washed off with the flannel too? sorry if its a stupid question!
Not a stupid question! I was confused by that as well.
Hi guys!Obvs not Caroline, what she is meaning is first cleanse get in take the makeup/Spf off, that's on your skin and down the drain quickly, she then spends time massaging her face with the second cleanse so it actually spends more time on your face, before its washed of hope that makes sense. She did do a post on facial massage awhile ago too.
that makes sense, thanks!
Hi, Caroline -- new follower here, and I do love your videos! I hope this wouldn't be a problem, but can you do a printed list of the items you discuss, perhaps on your blog? I'm hard of hearing and while I can usually grasp what you're talking about, the product names are tough to get. If it's a lot of work, of course don't bother, but in case it's easy, I for one would appreciate it to bits! Thanks heaps.
If you go to YouTube properly (not just the link in her blog), you'll find a list of the products and links to find all of them. It's very helpful. If you don't see it above the comments section, make sure you click on 'More' to see more of her comments on the video.
Thanks for another great video Caroline. And on that note I'm off to take my slap off and do a lovely face mask before applying my evening skincare products. Pjs here I come!
Hello Caroline!Thanks for another great video! I have a question for you (and your lovely readers..): I now use an eye make up remover to get my very waterproof mascara off, then a cleanser to remove foundation etc, and then my good cleanser. Any tips for a great cleanser for first cleanse that will remove WATERPROOF eyemakeup? My skin in dehydrated/shiny t-zone. Hope your or one of your readers have any tips!
Not the Lady Hirons obv, but most of the cleansing balms mentioned in previous post can get rid of waterproof eye makeup. I had wonderful experiences with clinique ttdo balm and tbs cleansing butter. Both had succeeded to get rid my dolly wink eyeliner and waterproof mascara.
Add The Body Shop Camomile oil to the list above as well - I find it even better than the butter for removing waterproof mascara and eyeliner, I swear it takes everything off, not even a trace left. I've been using the butter one as my second cleanse now as I find the oil removes make-up better.
Hi Caroline, I always wonder what you think of the Sensai Silky Purifying line? First and second cleanse are both available but I am not so sure about the ingredients..
Love this video.
Hi,I'm having trouble finding a balm for skin cleanser/second cleanse without essential oils or fragrance. I know Clinique has one but it's not really a second cleanse. Could you make some recommendations?Thank you.
Have a look at The Body Shop Camomile Butter, it does contain some fragrance though...but so far this has not reacted with my skin and most products tend to react very quickly with me. So hard to find things totally fragrance free.
