Know SBC? Love SBC? Tell me all!


Hi there, really hope you and yours are well and thanks so much for reading my blog.

I am also hoping you might post a comment below too as I would love to know what you love about SBC! The reason I am asking is that I have a full hour SBC show coming with the wonderful guest Adele this Friday 18th November at 11am and I would love to share some of your comments and feedback throughout the show.

If you don’t know SBC (it stands for Simply Beautiful Collection), it’s a British skincare range and to many is a real beauty secret of the spas and salons. The products are all inspired by the power of natural ingredients and come in formulations that you can either use individually or like a ‘cocktail’ to make prescriptive skincare. They’re famous for their skin gels but in the range you can find everything from serums to moisturisers, from body butters to cleansers.

My personal favourites are the Collagen Gel to layer with moisturisers and round eyes, the Warming Arnica Gel and the Camphor and Menthol Gel – both great to use on neck, shoulders and legs – and the Collagen Serum to battle those wrinkles!

Do post below to tell me your favourites and do be sure to join Adele and I on Friday.

If you need any more inspiration on the brand, take a look at some of the videos I have made talking about products from the range over the years:

See you Friday!

    Hi Craig, I have been using SBC for at least 12 years. Started with Arnica Gel to ease a painful hip. I progressed to Collagen and now use it regularly with Vitamin ACE or Jasmine & Evening Primrose Gel for my face and enjoy mixing various other gels for other areas. At 78 I think I have proved their worth. Love SBC

      Hi Norma,

      Thank you for your comment and feedback on SBC. That’s amazing that you’ve been using it for 12 years! The Arnica Gel is so helpful for pains and it sounds like you have a great face procedure which no doubt keeps you looking fresh and vibrant!

      Hope you manage to catch my show on Friday, its going to be great.

      Take care and hopefully hear from you again soon.

    Craig. Camphor and Menthol gel has become a gym bag staple. I am a bit of a fitness bunny and find the gel just soothes my tired and overworked body. I am training to be a yoga teacher and do not want to be without it..ever!

    Hi Craig, Love SBC, I have been waiting for ages for QVC to bring back the 250m size tub of collagen moisturiser – please please. Bought it in a TSV (wish I’d bought more than one). Also love the collagen 1 litre show crème. I like the large sizes and love SBC and Adele.

    I use collagen gel after my shower or bath, top to toe, before my body lotion and foot cream. My skin just drinks it in. I recommended it to a friend who loves the sun but her chest area was showing that she did. She can’t live without it now. Just the best SBC product of all.

    Hi Craig, I love SBC for its simplicity and the way the shower creme lathers. I also like how you can add it to other ranges of body care to enhance them. Is it possible to ask Adele if they can have some of the hand washes/lotions on QVC? I would love it if there was a ‘double ended’ booklet where you could look up what to use for a specific problem or, alternately look under the product for ideas of how to use. Look forward to seeing the show on Friday x

    Hi Craig
    Great blog as usual your hints and tips are so handy it’s good to hear how guys use them too giving me lots of ideas for gifting.
    I adore the super fruits shower crème, I’m not sure if it’s still available?
    My initial favourite was the Arnica Bath soak as I have ME and my daily bath is an essential to ease my muscle aches, the arnica Gel too is great for after bath treat. I too use the collagen gel, so cost effective and light on the skin.
    I can’t put pressure on my joints so I put a generous amount of a mix of arnica and propolis onto an old cleansing cloth(you know the one)! and rest it onto my wrists.
    I have tried most of the products and have given them as gifts you are certain you are giving a quality item.
    Take care Craig
    Love Jilly

      Hi Jill,

      Thanks for your message and very sorry for the delay. Not sure if you watched the TSV, it was great. Mentioned you so not sure if you caught it :-).

      Thanks and take care.

    Hi Craig, I love SBC, especially the collagen shower creme, it lathers really well and my skin feels soft, the collagen gel is great too, soaks into my skin quickly & doesnt leave any residue. I also like the propolis gel & bath & shower wash. I have a bit of dry skin on my scalp & have been using the propolis shower & bath wash as shampoo! It has helped with the dry skin & also leaves my hair really soft. The arnica intense gel also helps my back, I find it warming & comforting.
