On Beauty Insider this week: Dyson, Swell, Novexpert and more!


Can you believe May is almost over? You’ve got a day left to take advantage of our Laura Geller Product of the Month and Tan-Luxe Supersize of the Month offers – don’t delay! Click here to read my thoughts on both of these brilliant products.

Coming up tonight:

If you’ve had your eye on the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer, tonight we’ll be going through how you can make the most of this top tool – you can also check out my blog to find out how I like to use it! Here’s a top tip: use the cool shot function to help you cool your face down in the heat; it’s so relaxing and doesn’t feel drying at all on the skin!

There’s also a One Time Only offer from Liz Earle in the show, you really don’t want to miss it!

We’ve got a great offer from Novexpert – the Hyaluronic Acid Booster. During the summer, your skin dehydrates even more in the heat, so always carry a bottle of this (and a litre of water) around with you!

Putting thick creams on can be quite uncomfortable in the heat, so go for a lightweight drink of water for your skin like this product, as it absorbs immediately, dries to a matte finish and will give a plumped-up look to your skin under foundation without looking greasy or oily. For sun wrinkles, just apply more product, and I like to use this under face masks too to help the product really absorb into my skin.

Focus on Swell haircare

Swell is a really exciting brand that we’re showcasing this evening, and follows on from our increase in stocking free-from brands here at QVC. Swell’s products are all about creating volume from the first application (especially on weakened, thinning and fragile hair), and the co-founder Jonathan Stallick has 20 years’ experience in the industry launching other free-from ranges. His knowledge of naturals combines with Andrew Bidwell’s hair and client knowledge as a respected hairdresser whose first passion is not celebrity status, but his daily, loyal clients.

I love the fact that once they created a formula, they then spent as long as six months on clients so that they could be really satisfied with the results – a huge amount of time to really get their product right! This has resulted in an easy three-step system that gives results from the first application. Anyone that loves ingredients will adore the scent of these products!

I also love their Dry Shampoo; a small but mighty treatment for greasy, limp hair, and it smells divine.

More gorgeous finds from The Beauty Stash:

Australian Bodycare Anytime Tea Tree Balm 30ml Duo – great value and a brilliant want to keep skin feeling moisturised – use it on lips, cuticles, elbows, anywhere!

Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser – a smoothing exfoliator in a super cute tube.

Sarah Chapman Eye Recovery – a fantastic all-rounder, if suffer from everything (puffiness, dark circles) then this is a great way to hydrate and treat your delicate eye area.

Bareminerals Matte SPF15 Foundation – great if you have oily skin and are looking for a free-from formula.

Benefit Fake Up Concealer – for light, hydrating coverage that’s silky to the touch.

There’s plenty more beauty goodness to be found at 8pm this evening, so tune into QVC Live to enjoy a show jam-packed with the best products, experts and brands, so you can give your collection a fabulous update.
