Best face forward for 2017



So, here we are the week before Christmas and I hope you are well, not too frazzled and managing to stay calm with the business of this time of year.

I wanted to wish you a happy, healthy Christmas and give you a quick round up of what I have been up to and news of a really exciting TSV coming up on the 27th that will see you starting 2017 with a younger-looking face!

Round up:

It’s been a great week and in the photos you can see me as Santa at my dance group end-of-term class where fancy dress was celebrated to the max, one of my best friends Lanze singing his heart out at his Christmas Carol concert, Christmas drinks with friends and colleagues at the home of fellow presenter Alison Keenan and a little reunion with my friend Ian who now lives in the USA – we’ve been friends for 20 years!

I’ll be on air at QVC every day from 21st December up to and including Christmas Eve and then after a quick trip to see family in Bristol I will be back on air on Boxing Day.

And at midnight on Boxing day into the 27th December I will be launching a very exciting Today’s Special Value. How would you like to start 2017 with a glowing complexion and a firmer, more toned-looking face? If the answer is yes, you MUST join me!

I will be launching the first ever L(A)B = Life + Beauty Today’s Special Value. It’s a beauty tool called the Pro Lift+ and if you haven’t heard of this brand, it was created by two sisters, Lauren and Charlotte (biology and chemistry graduates from Oxford), who wanted to make a beauty tool that would deliver incredible results on many levels.

You can use the Pro Lift+ for your entire routine, from cleansing and applying serums and moisturiser to treating specific areas for targeted wrinkle reduction. The main reason I suspect that most of us will buy it though is for the ‘lifting’ function and boy does this get results.

In the picture you can see my before and after. In the before you will notice my face look rather puffy and lack lustre – this is from late nights, party food and drink, general stress and not enough sleep.
In the after where I have used the Pro Lift+ for 10 minutes on the highest setting, you can see a real difference. More contoured, more lifted and much more brighter and awake.

I actually did half of my face to see the difference for myself and after I took the photo I had to do the other side as I looked so lopsided and this was after just one treatment, imagine the results after continued use (Charlotte and Lauren recommend a few minutes every day for the first month).


In my opinion this is an amazing tool and for non make-up days where you want to look fresh, healthy and awake it’s a must and on days where you are wearing make-up, your foundation and concealers will go on so much better on lovely smooth skin.

Be sure to join me and the L(A)B sisters at midnight on the evening of Boxing Day going into the 27th.

In the meantime, much love and Christmas greetings to you and yours!

Big big hugs
Craig xx

    Hiya Craig! 🙂 I bought the L(A)B when it was very first aired on QVC by Lauren and Charlotte and have used it ever since with fantastic results. If I had to describe it in one word – ‘transformational’. It step-changes and turbo charges skin health and appearance taking it to a new level that even the best creams cannot do alone; absolutely love it. Give my best wishes to the girls and thank them again from me. With Love and best wishes and Happy Chritmas, ‘Bammie’ (Ann-Marie Jones) x
