Every year thousands of new beauty products hit the shelves, virtual or otherwise, ready to promise a miracle treatment or effortless result – but how do you know what to buy, who to trust and where you should be looking for information? Once again the QVC Beauty Excellence Awards are here to help, showcasing the best of QVC’s beauty offering as voted by customers and beauty fans. Split into fourteen different categories that cover everything from the best foundation, hair removal device and cleanser to the best new brand, the awards showcase and celebrate the very best in beauty. What’s quite unique about this accolade is that it’s voted for by real women with real opinions, so you know you can trust the winning products to deliver something special. Voting is open now and closes on the 21st August, with the winners being announced live on air on 28th August from 9pm. (Make sure you tune in then!) QVC have asked me to give you a run-down of the five products in the anti-ageing category, so here are the super formulas nominated and which is my winner of choice…
There are five finalists in the anti-ageing category (see all the categories and place your vote here,) all covering a different area of the market and method of application. From masks and serums, to supplements, there’s something for everyone who’s looking to give their skin a little boost and help it look its best every day.
Alpha H liquid Gold (£31.00)
Get a radiant-looking complexion with this Liquid Gold serum. Made with the naturally derived active ingredient glycolic acid to remove the build-up of dull skin cells, as well as liquorice extract to naturally soothe, it will help revitalise skin for a natural-looking glow. It’s designed to improve the look of fine lines, but is especially good for scarred, dull or sun damaged complexions. Apply every other night to your face, neck and decollete after cleansing for best results when you awake.
Gatineau Futur Plus Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Mask (£42.00)
This radiance mask helps fight the signs of fatigue, with a whipped texture that’s so gentle it’s even ideal for use around the eyes. This soothing, hydrating mask from will help provide a smooth and brightened complexion – making it perfect for applying before an important date as a little pick-me-up. The QVC reviews are glowing, with some customers calling it a ‘desert island must have’ and ‘miracle product’.
Decleor Aromessence Iris (£54.00)
Featuring a 100% natural combination of essential oils including geranium, lemongrass, jasmine, iris and manuka, this unique formula is especially designed for the daily care of mature skin. Voted best anti-ageing product in the QVC Customer Beauty Awards 2014 (making it the reigning champ,) it’s designed to act instantly upon application and helps to increase the effectiveness of your moisturiser. Decleor products are simply beautiful and an indulgence for both the body and mind, but will this scoop the accolade for the second year in a row?
Imedeen Prime Renewal (£48.00)
This 30 day supply of Imedeen Prime Renewal is designed to support skin and collagen health, having been created especially for women over fifty. It will help boost your skin’s natural renewal, thanks to the inclusion of Vitamin C, E and Zinc (which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative
stress, while supporting normal collagen formation,) as well as a ‘Marine Complex’ (a unique protein and polysaccharide complex, containing elements similar to those naturally found in the skin) and White Tea Extract. With skincare you definitely have to start from the inside out, making this a great basis for any routine.
Perricone Chia Serum (£62.00)
A uniquely hydrating serum that absorbs instantly without leaving an oily residue, this is packed with one of the superfood buzzwords of the moment: Chia Seed extract. The seeds are rich in fatty acids and vitamins, which our skin needs more and more as we age. Get beautiful and radiant skin with this superb serum from Perricone that can be used in a multitude of ways: either apply a few drops direct to skin and massage in after cleansing, mix with a moisturiser, add to your foundation or even mix with a face mask for a more intense hit.
Although it’s hard to pick between the two, my winner would have to be Perricone’s Chia Serum; a superfood for your face that can be used in too many ways to mention? I’m in! Who would be your winner of choice?
