The Company

Skin Rocks is the who, where, why, what and how of skincare. And it is here with love from our Founder, Caroline Hirons. Skincare is a big subject, and lots of people need a helping hand with cutting through the noise and understanding what they really need for their skin. We are here to help with that, and we do it through the ground-breaking Skin Rocks App, Skin Rocks product line and Caroline Hirons’ curated Kits. Skin Rocks is built on Caroline’s lifelong study of skin care.
