Caroline has worked in the beauty industry for nearly 20 years. Her blog is a skincare addict’s bible and her tell-it-like-it-is delivery makes you feel like you’re speaking to your best friend. She is trained in over 100 brands and a globally qualified advanced facialist. This means she is fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to try lots of product. Lots of product. The majority of what she reviews has been sent as a PR sample or passed on from a brand directly but this never affects her opinion or recommendations, and she’s still a massive beauty shopper.
