Thanks so much for reading my blog and may I wish you a ‘Marvellous May’!
September is my favourite month (you can even see a poem I penned on a previous blog) and my second favourite is May; the promise of summer, the return of light evenings and (occasional) warm sunny days to thaw winter bones!
This May at QVC is going to BEAUTY-FULL as I have the most beauty shows in one month I have ever had at QVC. Here’s a run-down of what I will be bringing you:
Monday 8th May, 12pm: Pure Potions
I adore this range and by simplifying my skin regime to a natural ‘free-from’ collection, have seen incredible results. I’d seen breakouts and dullness in my skin which may have been from chopping and changing between too many ranges. I still trial various ranges as it’s important for my job at QVC but a big chunk of what I use regularly 80% of the time is Pure Potions; my skin looks fresh, healthy and well-balanced.
There are several YouTube videos I did (please note the show date was for the last show!) and can’t wait to be back with the creator of the range, Natalie Balmond, to share it with you.
So many people feel they had tried everything for various severe skin conditions and Pure Potions was the only range that worked. It’s important to remember though this isn’t just a range for problem skin; if you want naturally healthy, radiant skin it’s also perfect!
My little niece Ruby has recently developed a very dry skin condition that is causing her to itch and be very uncomfortale, I only discovered this at the weekend so am ordering the Ointment for her which I’m hopeful will really help!
Wednesday 17th May – I will be launching the Margaret Dabbs Today’s Special Value
I adore Margaret and her foot and handcare range. No longer do you have to use unpleasant medical smelling products to have beautiful feet! Since using Margaret Dabbs my feet have never looked better; you can see from the picture I took last summer when I was trialling the range; no hard skin, callous, corns, irritation between the toes or dry skin in sight!
My ultimate favourite is her Foot Hygiene Cream but I also use the Foot Powder daily to keep irritation at bay as well as her Foot Lotion to keep my tootsies looking good. This Today’s Special Value is perfect timing to get your feet looking and feeling great for summer! Keep an eye out for the video that Will Gowing and I will be sharing with her from Margaret’s West London clinic soon.
Thursday 18th May
– 8pm: Benefit
I looooove working with Lisa Potter-Dixon, Pippa and the Benefit team, we have so much fun so be sure to join us for lots of laugh and great make-up tips, tricks and the latest trends from the number 1 premium range on the high street!
– 10pm: L’Occitane ‘Test of Time’
This will be part of the mini-series and in this particular episode we will be looking at L’Occitane as an enduring range and what makes it magical as well as how the L’Occitane anti-ageing range can really help us stay looking radiant for longer.
– 11pm: Flora Mare
Using ingredients from the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brittany, this is a range that always surprises me from a cost point of view. Other ‘sea’ ranges can cost a small fortune but founder Alex has brought an affordable, results-driven range for us here. My friend Emma swears by the Foot Cream and I had great results with the 24 Hour Cream and Eye Cream.
Friday 26th May, 12pm: Decleor
I trust Fiona so much with her expertise and knowledge and this will be a wonderful show to really discover more about France’s number one aromatherapy skincare brand. My particular favourites are the Men’s Scrub, Alguaromes Shower Gel and Hydrotenseur Eye Serum.
Saturday 27th May, 10pm: Meet the Beauty Experts
And experts they are indeed because that day will be the Alpha-H Today’s Special Value which I can’t say too much about now but let’s just say I think you will love it!
As you would have seen from previous blogs as well as my Twitter and Instagram pages I now only use Ultrasun for my sun protection. My favourite for years had been the trusted Family SPF30 and now I have stepped up to the Activator SPF30, there is both a face and body formula and as well as once a day protection, it also helps you develop a deep, lasting tan – I used it in Morocco recently and three weeks on, people are still commenting on how golden and healthy I look!
Sunday 28th May, 9pm: Beauty by Pixi
I am much newer to this range as I suspect you might be too. Amanda Bell who is the guest for the range is so knowledgeable and great fun to work with so really looking forward to this show. Have you tried the famous Glow Tonic? What about any of the make-up or skincare? Lets go on a voyage of discovery together!
So, there we have it – what a BEAUTY-FULL month its going to be! Which of these shows are you most looking forward to and is there anything you would like me to ask any of the brilliant guests? Simply post a message or question below.
Thanks for reading my blog, big hugs and see you soon!
