It’s week three of our June Beauty Month and our plethora of special shows, offers and exciting new launches show no signs of slowing down.
This week sees an exciting new nailcare brand launch, as we welcome celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann to our screens at 3pm on Friday 19th. Plus we’ll have special Laura Geller shows each day at 12pm from Thursday 18th – Saturday 20th.
Remember to keep your eyes peeled for this week’s Today’s Special Value Offers – Gatineau‘s three-piece Perfect Skin Collection will also be on Easy Pay, while L’Occitane bring us a range of travel-size hand creams and fragrances, perfect for sampling new scents and keeping in your handbag, carry-on luggage or gym bag!
And in light of that, don’t forget to take our Fragrance Quiz, to find out ahead of time what scents might be the ones for you! We’re also coercing all our friends into doing it so we know what to buy them when their birthdays roll around…
Another highlight of the week is sure to be the appearance of esteemed British Beauty Blogger founder Jane Cunningham, who will be joining us for Monday’s Tried and Tested show, to share some QVC beauty favourites with us:
Once in a while, a product comes along that makes you wonder why nobody thought of this before! Cover FX Custom Cover Drops is exactly that – and easily the most handy beauty invention of recent years. Basically, the drops are concentrated pigment in liquid form that you can add to any other face product to get coverage. So, you could add them to a moisturiser to make a tinted moisturiser, you could add to a tinted moisturiser to make it a hydrating, fuller coverage base, or you can add to existing foundation to give a better tone match if your skin changes shade over seasons. The options are endless, and you’re master of your own coverage destiny for a change.
I discovered Ameliorate Body Lotion as soon as it launched and was immediately drawn by its use of lactic acid that breaks down skin bumps on the body. I’ve used it on the tops of my arms and tops of my legs where I do have skin bumps and the difference in skin smoothness appears within days. Lactic acid is a naturally occurring AHA, and speeds up your skin’s own exfoliation process, so you’re moisturising and exfoliating at the same time, and I’m always happy for a product that does two jobs in one! Ameliorate Body Lotion is also highly moisturising with sweet almond oil and Vitamin E.
This product has changed the way I think about using facial oils. Skinesis Morning Facial is, as you might guess, intended for use on waking, after cleansing. Prior to this discovery, I’d only every thought of facial oils as something to use at night. However, the lightness of the oil – basically a serum-oil – makes it perfect for adding suppleness and smoothness to the feel and look of your complexion. A collagen and firmness booster, packed with skin loving ingredients, from first use, I felt my skin looked better. I occasionally use it at night, too.
