..And what a month it’s going to be!
Throughout June not only are we bringing you the usual beauty fixes from our regular shows Friday Night Beauty and Alison Young’s Beauty Night In, we are also bringing you a special edit of our Tried and Tested show on a Monday night.
This slot will feature industry expert special guests, with a selection of products chosen and recommended by themselves, including British Beauty Blogger Jane Cunningham, Jo Glanville-Blackburn from Woman & Home, Stella’s Sonia Haria, Glamour magazine’s Alessandra Steinherr and, first up this week; Look magazine’s Beauty Editor, Sam Freedman!
Great minds think alike, as Sam’s skincare pick is also our Beauty Pick of the Month for June; the bestselling Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, which will be available to buy with free P&P from 1st June.
“This is my go-to cleanser, in fact its probably the ONLY cleanser I have ever used and squeezed every last drop out of. I love the ultra-rich creamy formula, it smells amazing and the muslin cloth that comes with it lasts for ages. It’s amazing for sensitive skin, there are no nasties inside, and it never fails to remove all of my make-up. Even the waterproof stuff! I always double cleanse to make sure all my make-up is fully removed, it helps to make the products I use after (my serum and moisturiser) get deeper into my skin, so they inevitably are more effective.”
Her other favourites include James Read Sleep Mask Tan…
“This mask has revolutionised the way I tan. Before I found this product, I’d be left with an almost dirty finish when I used fake tan, but this goes on like a serum, feels really luxe, it doesn’t smell and gives the most gorgeous natural glowing tan. It also doesn’t clog your pores either, so sometimes I use it for a few days to build up a really lovely-looking tan.”
“I’ve joined the nation and become totally brow-obsessed. I used to pluck mine daily, but I’ve left them to grow out (which has been a real challenge) but they’re now better than ever before. I’m quite fair naturally so I like to fill my brows in with something, and this is perfect. You use the angled brush it comes with and paint the genius mousse formula in small hair-like strands between the hairs. Because its a mousse, and not a cream, it has a really natural finish, and the waterproof claim is actually true. It doesn’t budge or smudge until you take it off at the end of the day. It even stayed put when I used it recently on holiday.”
Alison Young will be joining us for her own show each Wednesday night at 8pm (and on the Beauty Channel from 9pm), where she brings you the latest beauty innovations and her own favourites. You can also check out her blog, where she will be posting extra tips on certain products, problem-solving beauty dilemmas and answering your questions.
And don’t fear – if you see a product on one of our feature shows you can find it on the web with our Beauty Month feature – simply scroll down and click through to the show you saw it on and browse all the products featured on that show! It’s okay, you can thank us later.
Meanwhile, here’s what’s in store for the first week of Beauty Month…
This week’s highlights include an amazing first-ever Today’s Special Value from tarte on Monday 1st June (permission to get supremely excited granted).
tarte brings you this seven-piece make-up set, which includes a coloured clay-infused CC primer and bronzer blush, LipSurgence lip creme and lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara, plus – designed especially for QVC – an Amazonian Clay eyeshadow quad, double-ended complexion brush and a geo-print make-up bag.
And if that wasn’t enough, 1st June also sees the launch of our brand new Fragrance Quiz! Ready to help you find that perfect perfume, whether for yourself or as a gift, take our test to find the perfect signature scent.
You can even share your results on Facebook and Twitter – what better way to hint to friends and family, or even your other half (better make it a big hint!) and make sure they know what kind of perfume you’d like for your birthday/Christmas/anniversary/un-birthday…
Throughout the week, also look out for the launch of bareMinerals 20th anniversary Special Edition Foundation, and the 10 Years of Denny Collection in celebration of Leighton Denny‘s 10th anniversary at QVC UK.
