Summer days are spa days, of sorts, because there’s only one civilized way to beat the heat: beauty finds. This summer, it’s a great idea to sit down, turn the TV on and indulge in some truly bargain finds from QVC. Here are some of my Summer 2012 spa indulgences:
Bliss Triple Oxygen C Energizing Face Mask and Face Cream ($61)
This is one of my all-time favorite products, and it gives your skin a zing equivalent to professional peel. You can buy just the individual products at a Bliss store, but at QVC you get the duo in a signature tote bag. The two products are designed to work together to brighten and revive dull, tired skin, especially in five minutes. The oxygen provides a gentle fizz and lovely citrusy fragrance, and the bottle includes vitamin C to brighten and sodium PCA to lock moisture into the skin while antioxidants help fight free-radical attack. The gel cream combines the magic of oxygen moisturization and vitamin C to help rejuvenate skin to achieve a fresh-from-the-shower glow.
Clarisonic PLUS for the Face and Body ($225)
There are few things I can’t live without when it comes to my beauty regimen, and Clarisonic is one of them. This face AND body kit is great after a long day, and it features three speeds for the face and a spot spot therapy mode to care for areas of the body.
A body cleansing tip? Take one of your favorite aromatherapy products (e.g. a lavender scented gel) and use it with this system and turn on the music while you indulge in a truly steamy shower.
The Clarisonic PLUS skin care brush; three brush heads (delicate, sensitive and normal); one spot therapy brush head; three one-ounce cleansers (nourishing care, refreshing gel and gentle hydro); a six-ounce gentle hydro cleanser; a two-ounce and a six-ounce refining skin polish; and a universal charging cradle.
Fresh Elixir Ancien Oil, .5 ounce ($50)
Imagine my skepticism when I first heard that I could use OIL on my face, and that it was a specially hand-blended in a monastery to preserve the ancient tradition of oil therapy. How could this possibly compete with peptides and hyluronic acid?
But the pure oils do win, and on a rainy day you can soothe your skin with this gorgeous blend while you paint your toes red–or shall we say, retro? This Elixir is special to QVC. All I can say is–get it!
Josie Maran Argan Illuminating Body Butter ($30)
This velvety, lightweight and hydrating body butter has been whipped to perfection with Josie Maran’s signature ingredient, argan oil. The unique creamy butter easily revitalizes skin and restores softness while helping to improve skin’s overall texture. Delicate luminizers impart a subtle shimmer that leaves skin with a healthy-looking glow.
