When it comes to all things beauty and self-care, Caroline Hirons certainly knows what works.

2. Really Ree
Moving up a spot in our ranking of UK beauty blogs is Really Ree, where Anne-Marie Lodge posts about the really, really good stuff in the channels Makeup, Skin, Fragrance and Hair. We can’t believe it either, but it is already approaching Christmas season, and therefore, it is also picking out your advent calendar for the year season. Helpfully, there are already reviews of this year’s crop being shared on Really Ree so you can make an informed choice that might do you more good than the regular chocolate one – just don’t try to eat it…

8. Just Nadiene

In the words of a ubiquitous skincare advert of yesteryear – ‘Here comes the science bit – concentrate’. A new entry to our ranking of UK beauty blogs is Farwa Shah’s Science and Skincare, which goes much further than skin-deep on selfcare and skincare issues. You might not entirely understand terms like ‘lymphatic drainage massage’ or mandelic, salicylic, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid right now, but you will after reading a few posts here – no PhD required.
Collaborating with bloggers requires mutual respect and understanding: respect their schedules; take time to read their content to learn their interests; and only contact them if/when they want to be contacted. You can see more advice in our blogger spotlights.
