My Desert Island Beauty


I’m so excited to be heading to a desert island with Ali Young! She with her sun hat, me with my Decleor Armomessence Solaire – you just have to join us tomorrow at 4pm because, following in the flip flops of Julia and Pipa, I will be bringing you my Desert Island Beauty picks.

Here’s a snippet of a few of the products I just couldn’t do without…

Decleor 2 Piece Aromessence Solaire Collection The Aromessence Solaire set is just one of them. It features an essential oil serum to help prepare your skin for sun exposure and a fab moisturiser. The two work with other sun protection products to provide skin with a radiance and hydration, so you’ll have a healthy-looking glow all season.

Beau Bronz Of course if the sun doesn’t shine there’s always Beau Bronz – the faux tan like no other, and that just wouldn’t be as perfect unless I’d exfoliated first with Elemis’ Lime and Ginger Scrub! The salt water may add a little abrasion too 🙂 

Elemis Lime & Ginger Salt Scrub Not sure if it’ll just be Ali and I, so I’m going to bring my fab eye colours from Sue Devitt’s range, and will of course need my Bare Escentuals foundation too!

Cripes, I hope we’ll get all this within our baggage allowance… now where did I leave my passport?

See you tomorrow at 4pm.

    Hello Alison, I really enjoyed watching your desert island beauty show and your previous hour with Lola Rose. It is always a pleasure to spend my time with QVC and you. Thank you.

    Hi Alison,
    Saw you presenting Martha Stewart’s crafting on Saturday 24th July. I really liked the lilac tunic top you were wearing, lilac really suits you. Can I be cheeky and ask you where you got the top from ?
    Thanks Gill

    Hi there Gill, you can of course ask, and it’s not at all cheeky 🙂 The top is from Reiss, and I actually bought it last year!! Kim and Co have a collection of tops in a shade called ‘Imperial Purple’ which is virtually the same shade, so you may find something similar there. Thanks for writing and have a good week, Love Ali xx

    Hi there Gill, a good choice for a Desert Island! I have to say Liz’s Cleanse and Polish is something I’ve been using for at least 8 years, and had there have been room in the show with Ali Young, we would have featured that too. Thanks for writing, Ali xx

    Hello Joyce, how very kind of you to write, and I’m glad that you enjoy the shows. Have to say it was a treat to get two hours with Lola Rose jewellery, and my time with Ali Young was great fun too. Have a good week, Love Ali x
