On Beauty Insider this week: The Beauty Stash, This Works and more!


The Beauty Insider shows are back, and I’m excited to share with you the amazing new products, brands and offers we’ve arranged… but before we do anything, make sure you read my blog on the Product of the Month and Supersize of the Month! There are only a few more days to take advantage of this great opportunity.

Coming up tonight:

We’ve got a great show in store for you, including a special One Time Only offer from Gale Hayman, a brand new This Works launch to give your legs some colour and help keep them hydrated, and a brilliant T3 featherweight hair dryer that’s perfect for travel.

My top tip: pair this new formulation from This Works on top of your chosen Ultrasun SPF formulation to add a hint of tan to your body when you’re out and about in the sunshine.

I’m really excited about this new set from Gale Hayman as it contains the iconic Lip Lift, and as you probably know, this is one of the most well-loved products at QVC. I apply this all over my lips, around my eyes and even the nose if it’s windy, as it really helps to protect delicate skin from wind burn.

What I’m loving at the moment:

I’m so excited to be testing out a new range launching soon at QVC, called Skinsense. Founded by Ultrasun’s Abi Cleeve, this range offers cleansers, moisturisers and serums in functional, sensible and reliable packaging, with zero scent, zero false promises and zero hype.

It’s all about products you can slot easily into your routine that won’t interfere with perfume or other lotions and potions. It’s a really nice range if you’re celebrating pregnancy, experiencing an illness or have very reactive skin. Plus, this is launching before the highstreet debut – another reason to shop at QVC! If you have younger skin, just use one or two products, but if you have a more mature skin, you can cocktail them for a new skincare routine – make it as simple or as complicated as you like!

I can’t get enough of lipgloss, and two ranges I’m loving at the moment who offer fantastic colours and formulas are Cailyn and Bareminerals. The Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss Stick Trio from Cailyn is amazing for a range of fashion colours plus moisture, and there are three shade ranges to choose from. The Bareminerals Some Like It Nude set is another great option (this time for lips AND cheeks).

My find of the week:

I’ve discovered a real bargain find this week, from prestige French brand Caudalie. It’s a set of two of their Foam Cleansers for under £20. This should last you for the whole summer, and the formulas are non-sticky and really refreshing. They can be used by both men and women, oily, normal and dry skins can use them, and a few pumps is lovely for a morning cleanse. I keep mine in the shower to keep me feeling fresh and clean!

Have you discovered The Beauty Stash?

This new initiative celebrates individual, hero products to add to your collection. We’re also sharing the secret of some newer cult brands, only known by industry insiders – our QVC ‘hidden gems’ if you will. Often these products are brand new innovations being mentioned in leading magazines that you might not necessarily know we stock!

Here are just a couple of products I think you’ll love:

Algenist Essence Toner – a reinvention of your step two, to give more results after cleansing. A quick and easy way to add the unique, clinically proven ingredient of alguronic acid only available from Algenist into your regime. After cleansing, just splash and go for a visible result in a really simple step.

Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream – a great full size, and quite new to QVC. One of my favourite eye creams currently available!

Codage Day Cream – cutting edge brand, direct from the lab. Offers sublime textures and elegant formulas, all in potent strengths for noticeable results. Codage develop products for some of the industry’s leading brands, with very clean, premium and modern branding for a chic look and feel.

Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Serum – aloe vera and hyaluronic acid base. If that’s not good enough (it’s packed with peptides), it’s quick and easy, feels fresh and light, and you can use it around your eyes. The packaging is unisex and offers great results; you’ll discover this and just keep using it.

Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Under Eye Rescue Patches – lovely treatments to help cool and soothe your delicate eye area.

Dates for your diary:

    The beauty supersize of the month isn’t showing as free shipping. Should it be? I paid shipping on mine.

    Hi Alison, I am a bit puzzled about something and wanted to ask you a question. It is about lip glosses. I find that every lip gloss I buy. of good brands, even from QVC when I get to the bottom the wand won’t go right to the bottom to pick up the lip gloss! the wands seem to be short for the tubes. Is that done on purpose as I feel that I am not getting my money’s worth as there is always about a couple of centimeters left in the tube.

    Hi Alison, I am beginning to get brown patches or spots (not like pimples) on my face, round my eyes and on cheekbone areas. I would like to know if there is anything i can put on them to make them disappear? I am 59yrs old, but i don’t want to look it! Your advice would be most welcome.
    Thank you very much, Anne.
