On which water-based products to use…


Bare Escentuals Multi Tasking ConcealerQ: I've just been put on oxygen therapy and the doctor has said I'm free to use whatever creams/cosmetics I want as long as they are water based rather than petroleum based. I would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction.

I have dry skin and very dark circles, so any advice as to a moisturiser which is water based and something to cover the dark circles would be very helpful.

Alison: If you can't use petroleum-based products then that includes all mineral oil derivatives as well. The ranges we have that are petroleum oil-free and water-based are ElemisLiz Earle and AD Skin Synergy.

If it's a moisturiser that you're looking for, then try a light formula- Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream can be used on the eye as well.

    Great advice
    It is great to have a range of possibilities for skin care – I have given friends n’ family a Christmas list of items from QVC!!!
    I have tried the BE Concealer(228709) – Wow – When I saw it was a powder I almost didn’t try it, I thought it would make my skin dry, caked and crepey – I was so wrong, it blended into my skin beautifully and looked so natural.
    [An added bonus – you only need a tiny amount – this pot will last years!]
    It is always a great boost when you are not so well, to be able to look in the mirror and look better than you feel.
    Thank you again for your time and consideration

    I am a dark skinned caribbean, Why is all the foundations shown for light skinned people? there is a lot of dark skinned people out here who want to buy foundation from qvc. Help. Also it would be nice to also see a dark skinned model being used to show the foundation.
