For beauty bargains: Caroline Hirons Hall of Fame Limited Edition Skincare Kits from £140 (buy online from 1 November)
“When beauty expert Caroline Hirons lends her seal of approval to products, websites can crash under the stampede. So I’m giving you the heads-up that her three new limited edition skincare kits are available to buy from today, Sunday, at Caroline’s three-day pop-up in London’s Covent Garden (The Stables, 40 Earlham Street, London, WC2H 9LH until 1 November) and from tomorrow 1 November online.
“Caroline is already known for her regular skincare kits curated around a theme, so what’s different about these? Called Hall of Fame, they are a celebration of the 11 years of her skincare blog – think of it as a Hirons greatest hits. Each has up to eight all-time favourite products and total savings of more than 50 per cent of RRP. But don’t hang around, they’re limited edition. In fact, you may not want to wait until the end of this paragra…
“Hirons’ fans will be familiar with most of these inclusions from brands such as Votary, Kate Somerville, Chantecaille, Oskia and Pixie as Caroline has ‘banged on’ (as she might say) about how good they are. Choose from, the Routine Kit £140 (worth £311.50) for a high-performance regime, the Heroes Kit £200 (worth £482) products that were little known until Caroline championed them and the OGs Kit £295 (worth £678.50), classics that are still unrivalled. I like the look of the Routine Kit with Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm and Medik8 Crystal Retinal – both classics. See the lineup on carolinehirons.com.” Victoria Woodhall, GTG editorial director.
“Glossier’s iconic Balm Dotcom has just had a very seasonal makeover and I’m totally here for it. The limited-edition Cookie Butter flavour is delicious and definitely had me reaching for some Lotus Spread after applying it – it smells just like it!
