We have a special guest writer taking over QGossip today (giving us a well-earned break!)
Introducing Newby Hands, the Beauty Director of Harper’s Bazaar, who is here to tell us all about the magazine’s collaboration with Elemis, and a special subscription offer – just in time to celebrate Elemis’ 20th Anniversary on QVCUK…
I have been writing about beauty for over 20 years, working on the Daily Mail, then Harper’s Bazaar and most recently working as an online beauty expert. I think that Bazaar is known for being a reliable authority on everything from fashion and style to beauty.
At Bazaar we can see beyond just the trends, to what really relates to our readers, guiding them to what works and what they need to know. Plus the photography is always so beautiful that it just such a pleasure to look forward to each month.
I love the beauty industry as it is always evolving and moving forward, plus it encompasses so many areas from the high-tech to the natural and organic. I know how many women also love beauty but are confused about what to do or what to use, which is where I hope I can help.
But perhaps best of all I get to try out all those new products to find out those that really go above and beyond.
I respect Elemis because it works, and because it is just so lovely to use from the smell, to the texture and its results. Plus this is an easy range to use, nothing complicated to understand just great products that do their job.
I love to create my Elemis spa at home; I love a long hot bath and by adding the Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath and some drops of essential oil instantly makes it into a spa treatment rather than just a bath.
Plus I love to use the oils and salt scrubs as these are brilliant for leaving my skin incredibly soft and moisturised in one. While for my face, using the Papaya Enzyme Peeling Mask followed by a mini DIY face massage with Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules is the quickest way to make dull skin look radiant.
For me I love the fact that QVC is focused on the customer so before I buy I really do know about each product, and how to use it, plus I usually get some great tips in general. I even have my membership details at the ready to use QCut…. I do love to watch QVC beauty but my guilty secret is the cleaning products… I have more steam cleaners than I think I actually have floors!
I am so thrilled to be appearing on QVC as I regularly tune in, and I watch QVC Beauty too. It means I know that one of the big parts of beauty is women sharing tips and favourite products, so I love to be able to share my favourites too!
