    Alison, I am 60 years of age and I have very bad dark circles, they are actually in the corner of my eyes just above the bridge of my nose. I have tried many eye creams for dark circles which haven’t worked.. I have to use concealer but that only makes my eyes look worse. I have been drinking more water to try to flush away any toxins but nothing seems to be working for me.

    Hi Alison. When you next speak to Laura Geller can you ask her if there is any chance of her selling her strawberry toffee lipstick separately or in a duo. It’s the perfect colour but I don’t need to buy the whole set just to get it. Thanks, Sharon.

    Hi Alison. It’s not so much a beauty question. But a fashion one. I’m watching you on the deep sleep show and you are wearing a pink shiny jumper. Where did you buy it from? Is it on qvc? Thanks.

    Many thanks

    I mainly use Liz Earle products and love them. I was given a gift of Elemis rich moisturiser – which I also love. I also use Gatineau throat cream – guess what, I love it. Is it ok to use different brands? I have seen some Gatineau clips and very tempted by some of their other products. I am 63 and getting into a bit of a panic re the ageing process (a bit in the late side, I hear you say!!)

    Hi Alison, thank you so much for all of your wonderful advise so far. You’ve helped me sort my acne prone skin after 10 years of searching for the solution (I just use alpha h triple action cleanser and akin rosehip oil now). But I’m yet to find something that helps reduce my very bad dark eye circles. I’ve had them for over 10 years since I had a period of not being well. I’m 25 now and completely fed up of looking ill when I’m not! I’ve nearly finished my tube of alpha h eye complex, but I don’t think it’s doing anything for me so far. Please help. Thanks so much, Bryony.

    I am seeing age changes, sagging and wrinkles to my skin. At 56 I expect to see this o suppose. I do use nice products on my skin ( liz earle, sbc, Judith Williams ) I hate the hood I ng to my eye lids and around my jowls as well as the lines. Lines not so much of a worry as they add some character. Do you think the rio plus 60 would help? I had a toe fusion for arthritis and also wandered if the treatment would interfere with the pins and plate. Please help.

    Hi Alison,

    I have been a liz earle user for over 10 years and love it, however i have treated myself to the elemis today special value and was wondering can I still use the cleansing oil in my routine even though i use cleanse and polish? or am I best to use the separately

    many thanks

    Hi Alison , you sell lots of products on QVC to , minamise , camouflage or get rid of eyebags.
    Do any of them really work as you have had eyebags for years and I would have thought that you would be a prime candidate for a product that works.

    Hi Alison, I use Niod Copper Amino Isolate Serum and Multi Molecular Hyaluronic Complex and want to use Ultrasun Face Anti ageing and anti pigmentation 50+ cream so please can you advise whether Ulterasun should go on first before the Niod products or after.
