  1. Yay we got a 'bobs your uncle' and I dare you to say 'fannies your aunt' !!!! Could watch you all day Caroline,your so fun and talk in good old laymans terms.thanks!xxx

  2. Hi Caroline. I really enjoyed this and would like to order a couple of items but........
    Unless I'm being particularly stupid, I don't think they ship outside the states. Am I right?

  3. LOVE this review! I love her makeup also - the lipsticks are gorgeous!
    YES!! Bob's your uncle - made my day!!!

  4. Can't wait to watch this! Getting honest beauty at Ulta where I work and now I have an idea what to try and recommend.

  5. I don't think they ship to UK yet...

  6. I dont think they ship to UK..

  7. What do you think of the big 'Honest Beauty' scandal around their SPF not working (with all of those burned children pics that are all over the internet) now that you have seen the rest of the range?

    Would you recommend not using their SPF still?

    Do you think they have learned from their mistakes?

  8. Following the sunscreen incident, I am left with a low opinion of this company. Even more than the faulty product (which is serious enough) what I cannot abide is the way in which the affected consumers were treated. Perhaps Ms. Alba should simply stick to acting.

    1. I agree. It was grimy of the company to lower the amount Zinc Oxide in the sunscreen and then basically blame the consumers for not "shaking the bottle properly" prior to application. I saw an article today about someone suing Honest because of false advertising re: chemicals in the products.

  9. I'm in LA for another couple of days... Popped into the Grove and straight into Honest Beauty with my 8 year old sleep walking next to me. Ahhhh jetlag !
    It was obviously torture for him so only had a quick look but I'm going straight back there tomorrow to pick up some of your finds, Caroline.
    I'm excited already...only my banker isn't ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ 
    Bisous bisous !
