Hello again, I’ve been thinking… did anyone catch the new series of a programme called Shipwrecked? Basically it’s an updated version of a reality show I was on almost two decades ago, where they throw a bunch of youths on an island and film their attempts to survive. It was pretty hardcore to say the least, with no consistent food source, no shelter and no haircare or skincare products packed for journey.
At just 21 years old, what seemed to be initially enticing because it was like a three month holiday… let me tell you was starkly different in reality. In the beauty industry we throw around the term ‘desert island product’ and we mean if we were marooned on a desert island what products couldn’t you live without?! Well the good news is that I actually have experience of living on a desert island, so I’m certainly eligible to have an opinion.
So what three products couldn’t I live without from QVC UK?
1) The pick of the bunch in top place, it’s my number one all-time favourite purchase from QVC – The Dyson Supersonic!!
I know that there’s loads of technology packed into the Supersonic, but ultimately you can create so many styles with it. It dries hair quickly at a lower temperature, therefore creating less damage to the hair, and because of the speed and volume of air it multiplies and blows out, the hair cuticle is blasted shut to help give your hair more shine.
It’s nothing like an old fashioned hairdryer which can reach temperatures of 180 degree plus, causing irreversible damage. I love it though because in the mornings I can dry my hair in around five minutes, saving me so much time over the course of the weeks and when in a rush. Now we finally have it on six interest-free instalments (Easy Pays) here at QVC and with limited accessories, plus you can try it for 30 days paying only one instalment. I highly recommended it!
2) Anything UltraSun – My number one favourite from the range is the SPF Tan Activating Face 30, and I’ve just re-ordered the Ultrasun Sun Protection Face Tan Activator SPF 30 50ml Duo.
This offers that all important high protection with added tan accelerating, to achieve a sun-kissed look in less time whilst protecting yourself from those aggressive UV rays. Wear this year-round under skincare and make up. This is also a once a day formula that should be applied 15 – 20 minutes before sun exposure to help protect from UVA/B rays.
3) And my final top pick is a beauty number, it’s the Decleor Micellar Cleansing Water.
This has made my cleansing routine so quick, effective and easy. So good, it actually takes off every scrap of make-up, even waterproof eye make-up or studio make-up after live TV shows. It’s effective at removing oil or any dirt build up off the skin and also I’ve no need to tone the skin afterwards. I can also use it easily out of the shower after shows or first think in the morning before a shower, also it’s fab to wipe over the skin after a workout.
I’d never want to be without any of the above three, not saying they are vital to life but they make my life a bit better and easier.
More from Decleor this weekend though, one of their big Today’s Special Value’s (TSV) is this Sunday on the 24th of March in the form of The Revive & Hydrate Collection, I’ll be on at 11am with Fiona Brackenbury (Head of Product Innovation Decleor). We’re delighted to say the collection features a brand new product, never seen here on QVC, and is also available on pre-sale so you can get it ahead of the rush!
You get the Bi-Phase Cleanser which removes all make up and more! Shake this to wake up the formulation, swipe over your face and neck and it feels and smells like a spa experience! As well as the award-winning and adored Aromessence Neroli Amara Oil Serum, that gorgeous 100% essential oil designed to plump up the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and lock in hydration, a real customer favourite.
There’s also a supersize of Hydra Floral Everfresh Light Cream (the first time available in a supersize), this is the moisturiser that in a consumer perception trial 100% said their skin appeared younger after using, definitely one to love.
And finally a brand new product the Cica Balm in Eucalyptus – a repairing balm that’s 100% natural for the face and body, great for break outs and inflammation of the skin – a real all around SOS rescue with a warming effect when massaged in. It can be used on elbows, feet, cuticles and any dry skin areas.
Can’t wait to hear what you guys think of this new fabulous multitasker. And the price, wow the price! Check it out…
