    I am a devoted premium skin care user. My question is although I love my beauty products and can see results can I ask qvc why don’t they compile a health supplement show. What is good for the skin, nails and hair. That way we can have beautiful skin on the outside and a healthy compliment on the inside. We have all heard that saying beauty is only skin deep but we need to be tackling the ageing efforts from the inside as well. I think this would be an ideal win win for QVC and customers, in addition I trust QVC to source ethical supplements at amazing prices to educate us on.

    Hi Alison
    I’d like some advice on a suitable shampoo please. I have short thick dark hair greying in parts with some “movement” in it. Although I am 61 it is inclined to oiliness. Even though it is highlighted, it is in good condition. I am always on the look out for a shampoo that will make my hair look and feel clean but doesn’t strip out the natural oils. Most shampoos that I see are volumising or conditioning neither are a priority for me. I use Moroccanoil at each shampoo and for the first time I have the right balance of conditioning. I have been watching the Percy and Reed shows and wonder if their range has anything to offer me. As an extra question – I have avoided mousse products as they have always made my hair greasy and I don’t like the feel, so I have relied on a very good cut but a styling product of some kind might be welcome.
    Any ideas please f

    Hi Alison, my teenage son has lumps under his skin on his cheek area and spots/blackheads on his chin and nose. I have tried scrubs and ABC tea tree skin wash. Can you recommend anything else?

    Hi, Can I use nail polish corrector pens to take the whole of my polish off? My skin seems to peel and blister when remover touches it.
    Thank you. x

    Hi Alison,
    I brought the Elemis TSV in January with the blis capsules, ever since I have used them I have had big red angry spots on my chin and I can’t seem to get rid of them, I currently have about 7 spots on my chin. I am using Lime and pro radiance cleansers, toner and pro collogen day and night cream. Can you recomend anything that would help clear up the spots, would another range be better or is there something in the Elemis range.
    Please can you help I have more spots now at 35 than I did at 13.
