My desert island beauty


Today is the start of our fabulous Beauty Month and I have been kindly asked to share my Desert Island beauty must-haves.

I presented one of the Elemis 15th Anniversary shows at the weekend, and because the shows went so well there won't be any Elemis in my Desert Island Beauty show I am doing with Alison Young on today at 5pm, nor will there be any Liz Earle as that is the TSV on Saturday 3rd July, and we need to make sure we have plenty of stock.

But, I have plenty of other beauty favourites and am really looking forward to seeing what's on offer in the Nails Inc TSV which will feature in the show. We will also have the Nails Inc Caviar Base and Top Coat which I have been having good results with of late.

Decleor hand cream There will be plenty of Decleor, including the wonderful handcream which is such a favourite of mine and the Hydra Floral moisturiser, really good in this hot weather as it's not too heavy and thick.

But I simply couldn't do a show of my Desert Island must-haves without including Gale Hayman Lip Lift. This is a hero product for me and definitely something I use every day several times… Gale Hayman lip lift good job that we've got the duo in the show!

So join Ali and I at 5pm today (Thursday 1st July) - you never know what may happen… anyone for cake? LOL

Much love

    Hi Julia
    I completely agree with you about the Decleor hand cream it is amazing and so affordable in the big size that QVC does. It is hard to choose just one desert island product. If I were allowed more than one, I would choose Gatineau neck gel, Elemis Bliss capsules and George Clooney – oops sorry I meant to say Decleor Aromessence Excellence. Hope your gym programme is still going well. I am persevering.

    Hiya Julia
    Watched the Nails Inc show yesterday. I loved the darker pink on you, it was really pretty. Especially as you have a lovely (ssshhhhh, incase Alison Young sees this!) tan right now.
    Liz Earle AND Yankee candles this weekend, cant wait.
    Love Una xx

    Hi Morag
    You are a naughty girl …………. George Clooney!!!!!!!!!! Love love love the Decleor handcream but liking all of your choices actually.
    Here’s a tip – put a photo of George Clooney in front of your treadmill, that will keep you motivated!!

    Hi Una
    By the time this gets posted up you will have had your Liz Earle / Yankee Candle weekend – I hope you enjoyed it?? – I’m sure you will have done.
    Loved that bright pink – have kept it on my toes but had to take it off the fingers as I have jewellery shows …… boohoo!
