Feeling fruity and steamy this June!


Aaaaaand happy happy happy about low P&P! More on that later…

Hello my loves! I trust June is treating you well thus far. I always like the month of June. For a start it’s my birthday month. I shall be 47 on the 6th but I certainly don’t feel (or act) like it! Unfortunately and inconveniently though, I’m showing some signs of looking my age. Still, I’m not complaining. I’m lucky to be here and I count my blessings daily.

OK… maybe just a little complaining then. I’ve really begun to notice my skin is much drier than it’s ever been. I spoke to our resident beauty expert, Alison Young, and she said it’s what happens as women near a certain change. Fair enough. It’s all a part of life. She suggested using more oils and really focus on products that hydrate the skin. Cue Elemis and their fruity Beauty Pick of the Month!

Elemis is one of the UK’s leading luxury skincare brands. Harnessing the power of natural actives and cutting-edge technology, Elemis has formulated some of the most influential anti-ageing products and professional spa therapies the beauty industry has ever seen.

Their brand new product launch is the Pro Collagen Neroli Cleansing Balm. It’s a supersize and is the zesty new sister of the original Cleansing Balm which is a beauty editor favourite! We are especially thrilled about it as it has been made just for us at QVC for the month of June.

What makes it different? This powerful, deep cleansing balm dissolves away make-up, daily grime and pollutants. Luxurious neroli oil and orange wax are infused with hydrating oils and fully traceable fig, lemon verbena and Melissa oleo extracts to leave skin looking refreshed and vibrant. It intensely cleanses and hydrates for a balanced, healthy and radiant looking complexion. For all skin types, too.

Let’s talk value, shall we? The standard size of the original Elemis Cleansing Balm is 105g so you are getting almost double the amount of product at a great value price! The Pick of the Month also comes with zero P&P for this month, so you are receiving almost twice the amount of product in a 200g limited edition fragrance.

OK, I promised I’d get on to why I’m so happy about P&P. If you haven’t yet heard the great news, listen up! For the entire month of June, in celebration of QVC’s Beauty Month, we are offering reduced P&P of £1.95 on the entire event selection of beauty products!!! How fantastic is that?? I will be blogging about some of my beauty must-haves in the very near future and would love to know what yours are, too. Great news, though, I hope you’ll agree!

So, we’ve covered the P&P and the fruitiness of the blog title but how have I been getting steamy? With the latest Today’s Special Value offering from Morphy Richards. I’m always going on about the fact I don’t even own an ironing board because I don’t need one with my Morphy Richards Steam Generating Iron. I have recommended it to so many friends and family and they are completely sold when they’ve tried mine.

The Speed Steam Pro is their most powerful Steam Generator Iron. Producing 7 bar pressure, so you can iron through multiple layers at once and speed through your ironing. Just look at some of the features below:

Powerful steam output – 140g of continuous steam makes ironing effortless and gives great results on all fabrics. For tough creases the powerful 400g steam boost will easily tackle even the most stubborn creases.

AutoClean & De-Scale – the built-in AutoClean & De-Scale functions on this Speed Steam Pro helps to remove limescale and keep your steam generator working at its best. Limescale build-up can reduce the steam output, so this function is essential to maintaining the maximum steam output.

Large capacity water tank – the large 2 litre water tank ensures you can keep ironing for longer, without the need to refill.

Ceramic soleplate – the non-stick soleplate on this Speed Steam Pro is made from high quality ceramic, for extra durability. Ceramic also ensures the iron glides across your fabrics with ease, removing creases.

Vertical steam – the Speed Steam Pro provides powerful vertical steam. Ideal for those hard to iron fabrics around the home. Freshen up curtains, bedding, upholstery and more, quickly and easily.

Neat and tidy storage – the cord storage feature on this steam generator keeps unsightly cables out of the way and makes it easier to store when not in use.

Safety features – the Speed Steam Pro comes with Auto Shut Off and a secure iron to base lock. For added safety and peace of mind, the Auto Shut Off feature ensures the iron turns off if left unused. Additionally the iron securely locks to the base unit for easy, safe and secure carrying.

It’s coming up on the 6th of June which also happens to be my birthday! I’ll be letting you know how I spent my 47th in my next blog. I’m pretty sure there will be cake, and definitely champagne involved!

Thanks for taking the time to catch up with me! See you next week.

Lots of love,

Catherine xx

    Happy birthday!!!! You do not look 47 – and I have very recently been to Specsavers!
    My birthday was 1st June and I reached something similar to you (but in reverse ).
    Hope you have a lovely day.

    Happy Birthday Catherine. What a nostalgic day to have a birthday. I’m replying to this blog watching the tv footage from Normandy and having a little weep for the veterans.

    I’ve had the 6 bar steam iron for about two years, and love it. Only moan, it’s gets noisy in the middle of the session, which can be annoying, especially when I’m catching up with my soaps. I have to keep turning up the volume

    Have a fab birthday, but stay safe!
