  1. I just adore you Caroline - your fab personality paired with your knowledge makes you one of the most loved and trusted people I follow!! I'm sat here after just finishing my Sunday skincare routine with products mostly recommended by yourself. Keep being you!! x

  2. Just for the need to make these as short as possible! I could watch hours of your videos a week - much better than any show on TV! (Someone please sponsor Caroline to have her own web series!)

    1. I also agree. The longer the better!

    2. Agree! The one thing I don't like about Caroline's videos; hearing the words "I'm going to try and make this as short as possible"! Nooooooo!

  3. Thank you that was delicious product porn! Your hair is looking fabulous too

  4. I love getting to peek at what you've been using. Thank you for your videos!

  5. Hah! Love your empties vids. All the products I'll never see in the wild here. Exciting!

  6. Woooo the price of the le mer body creme! One day I will have it haha! Thank you for another great video again! :)

  7. I have been obsessed with your blog and YouTube videos since my friend told me about you a few weeks back. You have transformed me skin! Thank you and good luck with the construction.

  8. The Aox or the Kate for under eye dark circles and crepe? If you HAD to choose... Thank you!!

  9. You can get some Josie Maran products on QVC. They have a 59ml size of the sweet citrus, but in a set with 5 other fragranced body butters.

  10. I was wondering if you could please recommend some really good eye creams? I'm 22 and haven't used eye cream in the past, but have just moved to England from sunny AUS and am quickly realising that I need to do much more to keep my skin hydrated and moisturized in this weather! I love your blog by the way - your honesty is so refreshing :) So glad I can finally purchase the products you rave about!

  11. LOL, love the empties videos! I want to try the Shea Moisture range now but had to love your Duran Duran reference in relation to body cream, we so know where your mind was going there....

  12. Hair is looking lovely! I'm trying to subscribe via my google account and that is not an option. Usually I just click on subscribe and it states done. This does not happen and perhaps this is a snafu decreasing your goal. Can you clarify how to SUBSCRIBE!

  13. I have tried two different SLS free shampoos and both made my hair much drier than my regular shampoos which contain SLS! I thought it was meant to be the opposite way around? Can anyone shed any light on this please? :( really want to get my hair in better condition. Thank you x

    1. Same problem here! I used The Body Shop one and my hair felt straw like - and I have oily hair!!

    2. I used the OGX White coconut milk one and the Soap and Glory one (along with the matching conditioners).

    3. Update - I tried the yes to carrots pampering one and it didn't make my hair dry! Yay!!

  14. Fabulous, as ever. After dropping the tempting "in my top 5 balm cleansers" in there, please coud we know your top 5, just because....please.

  15. Ha! My friends take the mick because I have my cheap moisturisers for my legs and body and my special moisturisers for my arms and chest for special occasions! Ha ha! I also save my expensive shower gels for such occasions. Glad I'm not the only one who mix and matches!
