Cheat Sheets are back ---->


Blogger has had a few glitches lately, and it completely removed the Cheat Sheet tab over there on the right hand side ---->
Thank you to those of you that were asking me where they had gone - I hadn't even noticed! Rude blog site.

I think there may be others that aren't tagged as this site has such a huge back catalogue of content that I am constantly going back and adjusting/updating/tagging posts. It seems a never-ending process, but a strangely enjoyable one. I don't change older posts, I update them with a new one if necessary, and this is all part of a bigger process to move this to a bigger website.

While that is happening behind the scenes please do feel free to flag up any mistakes/things you feel need updating. This is a live, breathing blog and I am grateful for your input.

Thanks Chaps!

  1. Hi Caroline. Firstly, thank you for creating this blog/instagram/you tube channel. Following your recommendations and advice has, at 47 years of age, given me the best skin of my life. I only discovered you a couple of months ago through another you-tuber but since then I have read each and every post, each and every instagram and watched each and every video you have put up. So educational and so entertaining. Love you to bits. Anway, enough of the fangirling, I do actually have a question for you which relates to the post/cheat sheet you did about how much product to use. Does the amount you use change based on the price/quality of a product? I know that you say to use "pea", "hazelnut", "quarter", "pine nut" etc quantities for each particular product/step, but does this change based on the quality and/or concentration of the product being used? I know that when I have purchased more lux products, the sales assistant will usually attempt to justify the price by saying that you only use tiny quantities at each use. Thank you again for your fantastic website and I'd love you to visit Australia at some point. Would be an honour to make you a cup of tea (on the strong side, and don't put the milk in until it's finished drawing! :)) XX

    1. Hi Anna,

      Yeah it depends on each individual product and your skin. And the size of the area - I have a huge face LOL
      Start small and build up. And well done on the tea making! :)

  2. Hi Caroline, just a quick question, is it true that niacinamide should not be used with Vitamin C? Thank you

    1. No the newer thinking from scientists is that it's perfectly fine. Keep them in cool conditions to minimise acid formation.

  3. Love your cheat sheets :) Was wondering if you could do one for very oily skin - I look to the acne one for inspiration but I don't actually get all that many spots despite the oil (silver linings eh)

    1. That would be super. I'm 45, all oil and hardly/rarely any spots/pimples. I ooze through moisturiser in minutes and thicker foundations look fakey or cakey!

  4. Hi Caroline!
    Thank you for all the cheat sheets, but I wondered if you might could do one for rosacea skin? Or some product recommendations?
    My skin is just all over the place and I don't know what to do anymore, I'm only 23 and have to use so much makeup :(
    Best wishes, Lisa

    1. I second this, pretty please do one for rosacea... I'm 31 with acne rosacea subtype. Thanks for the wonderful posts/reviews/blog Caroline!

  6. Yay! Thanks so much! I want to refer the blog to many friends of mine and the cheat sheets are always a good starting point!

  7. I am outrageously amazed at how you've managed to cultivate such a large readership on this platform. It proves that you don't need all the fancy pants SEO tactics and analytic strategies these marketing "specialists" preach about. All you really need is solid content, and readers will come... and come back time and time again! Glitches, however, do get annoying. So I'm looking forward to an updated site in the future!

    1. Thanks Disa, I know glitches are infuriating! They don't happen that often but I'm still upgrading. :) x

  8. I'd really love a guide on how to buy products online. Which websites are reliable, how do you know if you're buying a genuine product? Best way to buy things that are only available in other countries etc.

  9. Hi Caroline, not sure where to pose this question, so here goes. I'm 51 and my skin has improved tremendously in the last year thanks to your advice. However, I'm so concerned with lack of firmness. Everything is sliding downwards. What are your thoughts on facial exercise? It does make sense that it could help but I'm wary of trying it and regretting. But I do need help with firming up my muscles and skin. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

    1. Hi Samina, Honestly without intervention, the only thing you can really do is talk a lot and sing a lot! Keep everything moving. Once it slows down, it droops! Use it or lose it! x

  10. I use the site search from Google to find stuff on the blog all the time. Just type site:CarolineHirons.com {insert what you are looking for} in the Google search field I used it for seeing if you have reviewed a specific product.

  11. Ooh lovely thank you for sorting that Caroline, I'm off to reread the winter skin one as my skin has become sandpaper dry since the heating went on!

  12. Hi Caroline. Any chance you add blog post/cheat sheet about blackheads to you list? X
