Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm
I look after the Elemis range here at QVC and so I was very excited for this long-awaited product launch in March this year! I love the texture, as this cleansing balm melts so easily on to my skin and it removes every single scrap of make up really easily. I also love the smell, I find it really soothing and cleansing and I feel like this product leaves my skin so soft and clean after using it.
The cloth is also fab and if you follow Keeley's tip and run it under hot water, wring it out and then cover your face for a few moments before removing your make up, it feels like a lovely mini at-home facial! I use this product every day, always in the evening and sometimes as my morning cleanser too. It is great for all skin types – I have combination skin and this works brilliantly for me. I was worried that a balm would be too rich for my skin, but it leaves it feeling perfectly balanced.
James Read Liquid Tan
I discovered this range when we took on the brand a little while ago and my colleague recommended I try the product.This is one of my favourite fake tan brands by an absolute mile. The liquid tan is a very thin consistency, which makes it much easier to blend in to the skin than a thick creamy lotion or a mousse.
When applied with the tanning mitt, it leaves such an even finish and the colour is really natural looking. It also dries quickly so you won't end up with tan stained clothing! I apply this in the evening before I go to bed, the night before a special occasion day or weekend. In the morning I shower it off and it leaves a lovely, golden finish. Since using this product I have introduced a few of my friends to it and they are also now absolutely hooked!
L'Occitane Shea Hand Cream Duo
I was recommended to use this product by the girls in the office and I was happy to try as I have long been a fan of L'Occitane. The smell of this rich hand cream is so comforting and it feels so nourishing on my skin. I also find it sinks in very easily and does not leave hands feeling sticky or greasy at all, just perfectly soft and conditioned.
I love to apply this hand cream at night before I go to sleep. Since using this product regularly, I actually feel that it has helped to take better care of my nails and cuticles so my nails are currently looking lovely and long!
Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo & Moisture Balancing Conditioner
I can't actually remember how I first started using Philip Kingsley products but I am hooked! My hair is long but fairly thin and it has a tendency to feel quite flat. It also gets greasy after 1-2 days so this combination works brilliantly for me.
My hair feels so much healthier and easier to style when I'm using Philip Kingsley. I also colour my hair but these products are still suitable for coloured hair and have helped to bring my shine back. I cannot recommend the range enough; there is something to suit everybody. I also use the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer as a conditioning treat for my hair once or twice a month to leave it feeling really bouncy.
Watching the demonstrations of the InStyler on QVC, I was really intrigued and wanted to try it out. I already have a curling wand, but love that this can be used for straightening and waves too.
It gives me fabulous loose, big waves that I don’t get from my other curling wand. I have fairly frizzy hair, so I can use the InStyler to straighten and smooth my hair just before creating the waves and curls. I love using it for special occasions like parties and weddings to give my straight (ish!) hair a different look.
Emma Hardie Cleansing System
I was lucky enough to try out the Emma Hardie Cleansing System when I got a sample from a beauty event a year or so ago, and I fell in love with it! The Moringa Balm feels and smells really luxurious and I feel like it’s a real treat for my skin.
It’s easy to use and leaves my skin feeling gorgeous and soft afterwards. I use the Moringa balm every night and mix in the exfoliating seeds once a week or so, when I feel that my skin needs a bit of extra help! I love that a little really does go a long way and that a jar of Moringa Balm will last me a long time.
I hadn't really heard of Leighton Denny until I started working at QVC, but now his nailcare range is one of my favourites by far! I think the quality of Leighton Denny nail polishes really stands out.
When I use his colours, they don't chip or flake after a day or two like some other brands and the colour lasts so much longer. I love his range of fabulous shades as well – 'I Love Juicy' is definitely my favourite one! I paint my nails all the time – you don’t need a special occasion!
I first discovered our very own super star Lulu's Time Bomb products when I was fortunate enough to be given some samples to try and I can say from that moment I was hooked. My two favourites out of her range are Youth Juice and Hand to Hand Combat Cream.
The Youth Juice
This is like no other product I have tried, the super lightweight oil is applied to a cleansed face and literally from the moment it goes onto the skin you have an instant feeling of being refreshed and your face takes on an almost youthful glow!
The Hand to Hand Combat Cream is such a luxurious hand cream and when applied hands feel instantly smooth and hydrated, I found you did not have to keep reapplying this as it would last thoughtout the day even after a couple of hand washes!!
Lulu is such a style Icon and I am truly a big fan of her brand , she always looks amazing and she endorses her brand by turning up to our studios barefaced so we can see the living proof that her products really do give you that youthful appearance.
Emma Hardie's Moringa Balm
Another of my favourite brands is Emma Hardie's Moringa Balm, this is simply a fantastic product. Once applied to the skin the smell simply sends you to heaven. It gently removes every trace of make-up even stubborn mascara and leaves your face feeling refreshed and glowing.
Emma is such an amazing lady herself and she makes you totally believe in the products, having been fortunate to have attended one of her work shops I am now completely hooked on her range of products.
