As it’s St. George’s Day, we thought we’d compile some of the brands we stock here at QVC, that have a strong English heritage and a love of sourcing ingredients grown on our fair isle. If you’re after supporting home-grown beauty brands to pamper yourself or a loved one, look no further!
This beauty powerhouse has been with us for over 20 years, and from the iconic Pro-Collagen Marine Cream to their brand new Golden Azahar bodycare collection, they offer something to suit just about every complexion and skin type. Whether you want functional skincare products for removing make-up, or pampering bodycare treats to enhance your evening routine, Elemis have you covered.
Ayesha our senior copywriter loves: Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich.
It feels so luxurious and yet light at the same time, like silk on my skin! I also really love the Elemis SOS Emergency Cream, I have a couple of tiny dry patches on my face that come up every now and again and I find it’s great for getting rid of those, I also have used it on insect bites on my kids in the summer – very soothing!
Sarah our home and kitchen copywriter loves: Pro-Radiance Flash Balm.
If I go out in the evening after work, I use the Pro-Radiance flash balm at my desk before applying make-up – it gives my complexion an instant boost and a gorgeous dewy, smooth finish.
Laura our fashion copywriter loves: Nourishing Omega-Rich Cleansing Oil.
I have annoyingly sensitive and dry skin, so finding a cleanser that removes make-up but doesn’t strip the skin used to be a nightmare. Since I’ve discovered Elemis Nourishing Omega-Rich Cleansing Oil I’ve never been happier with how my skin looks and feels, it’s so moisturising and pampering!
Liz Earle launched her fan-favourite Cleanse & Polish over 19 years ago here at QVC, and after over a hundred industry awards (and a bottle re-vamp or two), it’s still the name to know when it comes to cleansing. The brand have also launched some incredible skincare treatments over the years, plus shampoos, facial masks and even fragrances.
Jessica our skincare copywriter loves: Instant Boost Skin Tonic.
I’ve used this lightweight spray for years as a toner after cleansing and before applying moisturiser, but on a recent holiday I discovered how fantastic this feels on a boiling hot day! I liberally spray on my face, neck and shoulders to keep cool in the heat – and the scent is lovely too.
Shiv our jewellery copywriter loves: Botanical Essence No.20.
I had been looking for a light, fresh fragrance that I could use every day, and then I found this! It’s really gorgeous and not at all overpowering. I love refreshing, citrus scents, so this one really ticked all the boxes for me.
Fusing luxury with effective, expert-developed products, Margaret Dabbs offer the best in English innovation. Margaret herself is passionate about keeping the country’s hands and feet looking gorgeous, so you feel pampered and confident, whatever the weather.
Vina our lead beauty designer loves: Foot Hygiene Cream.
It feels very moisturising on my feet, and the price is great too. An essential in my toiletry bag whether I’m travelling or at home.

Lesley our cosmetics copywriter loves: Deep Sleep Pillow Spray.
I’m a very light sleeper and wake up at any slight noise or disturbance, but using this has definitely improved the quality of my sleep. I wake up feeling well-rested in the morning and the scent is so calming… sometimes I spray it in my bedroom during the day if I need to relax and unwind.
We’re lucky enough to constantly bring you new launches from the minds behind Ultrasun, one of the most extensive ranges of sun protection available to us in England. Suitable for most skin types, Ultrasun products have a shelf life of two years, making them the perfect brand for your bathroom cabinet, as you can use their range on your holidays without worrying about your expensive SPF expiring straight away!
Sarah our home and kitchen copywriter loves: After Sun.
I love this because it’s quick-drying and so, so cooling. I recently used it on holiday in India and could go right up to my hairline without my hair becoming greasy!
