VLOG WEEK 18 - The Body Shop and the new fridge ;)


Another short and sweet one - I told you I was taking it easier in January! I'm off to L.A. tomorrow - suffice to say there will no Dettol in next week's vlog.

  2. Hi Caroline! Not sure if this is the proper place, but I was wondering if I might ask a skincare question. I've been using the Kypris Moonlight Catalyst every other night for nearly three months, and while it's done a lot for my redness and general skin health, I am still covered in clogs/closed comedones all over my forehead and chin (have been forever). The only thing that's ever kind of worked for that issue has been prescription retinoids, but those wreck the rest of my face (in a big way - I used the lowest percentage available for nearly a year and had unbearable dehydration, oiliness, and a perioral dermatitis outbreak that took two months of antibiotics to cure). Now I'm not sure what to do. Would you recommend P50 to someone like me, with sensitive, dehydration-prone skin? I'm hoping its particular acid combo might do the trick. Maybe the gentle version, or could I jump right into the strong stuff if I started off slowly? And should I quit with the Kypris if it's not doing the job? Apologies for the novel, and thank you so much for imparting your skincare wisdom to the world! *raises teacup*

    1. Hi Amanda, I have had the same skin problems as you. What worked for me was using Peter Thomas Roth glycol if toning complex as my toner at night and it cleared up all the clogs. I also use sea enzyme moisturizer by CA Botana and I think that has helped a lot with cleRing up the clogs. Before I was using an oil free neutrogena moisturizer and I think it was messing with my skin.

  3. Dear Caroline,
    Thank you so much for all the great work and the great motivation you give all your followers. I just wanted to ask whether you could at some point give us your opinion on ways to care for lips. They seem often disregarded and there isn't(especially in the uk) a big deal of specific products. I have a lip mask from kaplan that I sometimes use and other times I very carefully take some of my serums to the outer edges of the lips. But otherwise what would be best practice? Do you exfoliate? If so how? I'm guessing acid pads and the likes may not be suitable for lips. It's often the case with 'winter lips' that one doesn't quite know how to act but a long term plan is what I would be really eager to follow...at the moment I am really making it up as I go along. Many many thanks again for your time and for being the hysterically funny highlight of my instagram :). Chiara

    1. I'm not Caroline but I believe she has said that she puts all her skincare on her lips. I tried it and the p50 was too strong for my lips but the rest of my skincare works great to keep them nice. Amore Pacific makes an awesome lip gel that works really well too.

  7. I love the vlogs too! I also totally agree with your desire to not get mean comments. I'm not sure why opening up parts of your life makes some people think they have a right to judge. We adore you and thank you for sharing, but am glad you set boundaries and don't feel bad for keeping things private too! Please know for as many people that have negative things to say there are a ton more that have nothing but love for you and agree with you! We just might not say it (so this time I thought I would). :)

  10. Hi Amanda, I have the same problem as you. I have had tiny closed comes ones all over my forehead and chin for years and nothing works on them. What I found that works for me is Peter Thomas Roth glycolic toning complex. It's 10% glycolic so does a good job exfoliating but still has sodium pca to moisturize. I only use this at night because it's too strong to use twice a day and would make you too sensitive. It has worked miracles on me. I had also been using a neutrogena oil free moisturizer on my skin and I think that clogged my pores so and helped cause my dehydrated congested skin. I use Sea Enzyme 24 hour moisturizer by CA Botana. You can find it online. Every ingredient in that moisturizer is good for your skin, it doesn't break you out, and it's relatively cheap. Those two have saved me. Best of luck xoxo.
