The Beauty Insider Blog: September launches galore


September has arrived! As well our fantastic Hairfix Product of the Month and Elemis Supersize of the Month to take advantage of, we also have some incredible Today’s Special Value offers coming up. There is a Philip Kingsley trio that launches today, and Gatineau skincare treats are coming on Sunday 10th, including a brand new Defilift Body Oil.

Why not catch up on all our great offers by watching my videos below?

Coming up in tonight’s show

In our Beauty Insider show this evening I’m excited to feature Novexpert Hyaluronic Acid Booster once again. There’s a lot of talk about hyaluronic acid at the moment (and quite rightly so), and it seems like nowadays it’s almost over-used in skincare formulations. In this serum however, hyaluronic acid is the real star of the show, offering an elegant, liquid and non-sticky texture that gives a plumping result to the look of your complexion. I love using this all year round, although if you want to build up light layers of moisture in the colder months, this is particularly good.

We also have the fabulous two-piece Bespoke Double Cleansing Kit from Erno Laszlo. This kit offers really amazing value. It sold out during the launch, and I’m thrilled to have it as you can add it to any regime, and really see the effect after one use. The double cleanse regime is so popular and this is a great, affordable way to try this prestigious brand at home.

Why not try this?

I thought I’d take a minute to tell you about a really fabulous contouring palette we are now stocking from It Cosmetics. The You Sculpted! Universal Contouring Palette for Face & Body is a real must-own, and it’s great as your tan changes over the seasons or if you self-tan. It can be used by anyone, from the lightest to the deepest skin tone, and offers a great mix of cool and warm bronze and contour shades. It also has matte and radiant highlighter, and I’d recommend using this It Cosmetics palette for a lovely neutral eye look too.

The results of our Beauty Excellence Awards

I’m thrilled that the Philip Kingsley brand won twice in our Beauty Excellence Awards for Cult Beauty Product and Best Hair Product with their iconic Elasticizer. When Philip passed away it was a huge industry loss, so I’m so pleased we were able to celebrate his life and his most famous product (and his life’s work) through his daughter and family. Elasticizer has been our top-selling intensive hair conditioner of all time and of any brand, so these were really meaningful wins.

The Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer has also done so well, and it’s great to see that everyone has recognised the quality of this device, to help create a better blow dry technique at home.

It was also lovely to see our heritage products scoop up trophies, including both Laura Geller powder-cream foundations winning awards (Best Foundation for Balance N Brighten, and Best Make-up Must-Have for Balance N Glow), as well as their fabulous Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Diamond Dust winning Best Cosmetic Innovation.

One last thing…

We had a fabulous Alpha-H offer last week, where you could purchase their iconic Liquid Gold treatment for 50% off, just for one day. This offer has expired, but I still urge you to check out this fantastic formulation for yourself. Here’s a video where I talk you through the benefits, how to use it, and what you can expect to see after a few uses.

Remember to check out QVC’s Facebook page and my Facebook page, and you can also send me your questions, queries and blog post suggestions on Instagram and Twitter! Let me know in the comments if you’ve discovered The Beauty Stash too.

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

    Hi Alison. My partner suffers with major breakouts. We have tried everything. Would the charcoal Erno Laszlo help? I would like to get something that will help him and not strip the natural oils from his skin and dry it out too much. He also suffers with major shine throughout the day. Thanks

    Hiya Ali, I would like to say a huge thank you for sharing that tip about PK polish balm, I really dislike using heated tools on my hair even though I have them, well you never know, I might learn how to use them or get a friend to help me one day! After watching you talk to Lisa about putting it on wet hair and waking up with looks like a blow dry rather than my normal, the hair monkey had got to my hair in the night (my words) So I thought I’d give it a go, I’ll try anything that stops the hair monkey. OMG – I never use that phrase until this morning, it really works, not that I doubted you but everyones hair is different. My hair still feels silky and untangled and it’s now midnight YIPPEE. Thanks again Ali, now I know you don’t like kiss and cuddles but I send you a big mwaaahhhh 😉
