Caroline Hirons: Her Debut Book, Why Skin Rocks & More

Caroline Hirons is the UK’s #1 skin care expert who got beauty out of lockdown – and that’s only one of the reasons why we love her.

She’s arguably the most honest blogger in the industry and that’s not just for skin care; her social media presence shows a realistic insight into what it’s like to be a working mum of four.

If you don’t love her yet, you will do soon.

Her debut book

The entire world has been waiting not-so-patiently for a book from Caroline. As rubbish as 2020 has been, it has given us Caroline’s debut book, Skin Care: The Ultimate No-Nonsense Guide.

The Sunday Time’s #1 best-seller is a must-have for anyone and everyone; even those not concerned with skin types, anti-ageing or expensive moisturisers will find some tips and tricks.

How she got the beauty industry back

Yep, we all have a BIG thank you to say to Caroline Hirons for our eyebrows, facials and lashes.

Her instagram says it all:

An idea, two women, then a WhatsApp group of brilliant women in the industry, then the best team in the business, then calling in favours, then announcing to the public, then just calling people, then the press, then the TV, and in just over 72 hours the charity has made what it normally takes in a year. The first picture is the face @mrsalexforbes does whenever I say ‘I’ve had an idea.’ and also a visual representation of how hard we all laugh when people say things can’t be done. We’re coming for you @borisjohnsonuk @ukgovofficial @conservatives @rishisunakmp @chriswhitty_uk @matthancockmp AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE WE’RE RAISING OUR TONE. #bringbeautyback #beautybacked

She saved some of our favourite products

Clinique’s Take The Day Off cleanser is one of the most beloved products in the beauty community but did you know that Clinique were about to discontinue it until Caroline gave it a raving review!

Clinique even gave a statement for Caroline’s blog:

‘We can confirm that Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is not being discontinued. We are extremely sorry for any confusion caused at counter.

‘Due to the overwhelming increase in demand of the Balm, we are constantly working to increase supply to fulfill orders.

‘We have over 3,000 units of the Balm due into our warehouse at the end of April, and stock should begin to hit the majority of stores w/c 12th May’.

Take The Day Off isn’t the only product that Caroline has saved – Pixi’s Glow Tonic was rescued by her as well as Biologique’s P-50.

She gives honest reviews

It’s no secret that the world stopped still when Kylie Jenner released a skincare line and Caroline was also part of that… ish.

She had a lot to say about the line as well as a rant about people, specifically middle-aged white men, and how they attack women who have cosmetic procedures. We love women who empower women!

Friday shoutout to my reasons for breathing. ???? If you’re debating whether or not to have kids, just do it. You will never have enough money, you will never have enough time, you will lose all bladder control, you will never stop worrying, but you will make it work, and your heart will split into equal parts, leave your body and walk around the Earth filling you with endless joy whenever you think about them. (Not you BENDANAVAMAX. I am NOT talking about YOU having children. Please god not yet.???) ? EDIT: if you follow me it should be blatantly obvious that I am not in any way suggesting that having kids is for everyone, or necessary to have a fulfilling life. I am also very aware of how incredibly hard it is for some people to have children. But can you for once, give a mother-of-four a fucking break underneath pictures of her kids and just LET IT FUCKING GO without policing the comment section? Have a day off FFS. And to the bloke who said ‘straight people should stop having children there are already too many people in the world’ – you sir, can kiss my arse. Peace out people. ??

A few years ago, Dan was hospitalised with mumps and very nearly died. Since then, Caroline (and her family) have been big advocates for vaccinating children – she even made a mug about it!
