£65 but a friend really rates it so seriously considering....

No and I wouldn't. The advice on her blog is sketchy at best. One day we should use Clarins exfoliating toner daily then she changes her mind. Now her blog is advertised based I trust her recommendations less and less.

I would. She saved my skin with her recommendations and there were no high prices involved. Botanics, bodyshop, etc were affordable. Plus she is always shipping out the free advice. Even the other day she tweeted me info on making masks from the contents of my fridge.
If I could afford it and lived in UK id go..can you take a plus one OP?!!

I've read her blog and other blogs and by doing that I figured out what to use on my skin. If you're a complete novice read the cheat sheets on her blog. I had no idea about cleansing - how to do it - so they helped me!

I've also read a review of a consultation with her and the blogger reviewing it said it was good but didn't say much more than that - it sounded like Caroline told her what her skin was like (as if you don't already know) but then didn't 'prescribe' specific products... So I was left wondering what the point of the consultation was.

There are lots of skin care experts on here who will help you OP smile

Whilst her highly suspect personal opinion may appeal to some, it doesn't to me.

Why is it highly suspect, Sunday?
