I’ve spoken about my love for QVC and their ability to stock brands and products which other UK stores don’t, and more importantly they have a daily TSV (Today’s Special Value if you’re new to QVC) where they have a fantastic offer every day which runs from midnight until midnight or until stocks last and very often they sell out before midnight – especially the beauty TSVs. The Elemis TSV is one of the annual highlights for QVC and Elemis rarely disappoint their loyal fans, and this years Elemis TSV is quite possibly the best they’ve ever done and it’s going to be a guaranteed sell-out in my opinion as the contents are worth £138 but for one day only on Sunday the 13th of November whilst stocks last the price will be an incredible £45. The QVC Elemis TSV – Give The Gift of Great Skin Collections will be available in two fragrances; the new White Lotus and Lime Collection which Elemis have described as being perfectly unisex and their cult favourite Frangipani Monoi Collection.
Each of the two Collections contain six products to treat the hands, body and face – all wrapped up in a beautiful golden gift box which is perfect should you wish to purchase the QVC Elemis TSV as a Christmas gift. Both Collections are absolutely stunning and from what I’ve seen on the QVC UK Instagram page and Facebook page, a lot of Elemis fans are planning on purchasing both – I don’t blame them at all as the value is incredible.
I have the Frangipani Monoi Collection, but both Collections will feature the iconic Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30ml which is worth £48 alone so for less than the price of the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, you’re getting all of the other products which is just insane. I don’t know how but I’d never actually tried this cult favourite before but I’ve heard nothing but praise so I couldn’t wait to try it. The Marine Cream is clinically proven with the powerful anti-ageing ingredients being shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness, tone and hydration in 15 days. It’s best applied in the mornings with a pea sized amount warmed between the hands before applying to the face in upward stroking sweeping motions.
The next product which will feature in both Collections is the Elemis Nourishing Omega-Rich Cleansing Oil 195ml worth £29.50. The Cleansing Oil is blended with over 90% of natural oils and has been formulated to ensure it maintains the skin’s delicate acid mantle at its optimum pH 4.5 – 5.5.
It contains Winter Rose oil which is rich in Omega-9, and skin-conditioning Chia seed to effectively remove makeup whilst maintaining the skin’s natural barrier and vitamin-rich Pomegranate ensures that skin is left looking healthy and radiant. I love using cleansing oils which have a pump as you don’t have to mess around with lids or caps when you have wet hands.
The last product which is in both boxes is the Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner 200ml £22.50 which is a product I’ve been wanting to try for such a long time. Described as a calming treatment toner which effectively tones the skin and helps maintain the pH level, without the use of alcohol or other harsh detergents to reveal a fresh and radiant complexion.
I was particularly intrigued by this Toner as it’s suitable for sensitive skin like mine, and I really like the pump dispenser on the bottle as I sometimes like being able to mist my toner all over my face as well as applying it to a cotton pad. The smell of this toner is so lovely as it contains extracts of Apricot, Quillja Wood and Sweet Betty Flower.
The first product within the Frangipani Monoi Collection with the fragrance is the Elemis Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Nectar 300ml which has been specifically designed for QVC customers. The Nectar is for body cleansing and nourishes and softens the skin. As soon as I got the Collection I had to try this as the Frangipani Monoi fragrance is simply divine, and I absolutely love it.
The consistency is quite runny so I gently tip a £2 coin sized amount onto a damp shower puff and it foams up wonderfully to create a stunningly scented lather to thoroughly cleanse the skin and it left my skin feeling scented for a couple of hours post-shower. I can’t wait to try it in the bath as I imagine it’d be even more amazing for the skin, especially in the colder months.
The next fragranced item is a Elemis Frangipani Monoi Hand & Nail Cream 20ml worth £3.70 which is a great size for the handbag for when your hands are feeling a little dry. The handcream is described as having a nourishing formula with a delicate scent and is enriched with conditioning Shea Butter and omega-rich Macadamia Nut oil to restore moisture and promote suppleness with added protection. In addition the cream contains a blend of vitamins to support nail strength and soften the cuticles.
The last product within the QVC Elemis TSV is the Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Balm 120ml which is another new Elemis product. The Body Balm contains frangipani, monoi and rosehip to hydrate, soften and nourish the skin. It has a texture which is the perfect hybrid of a body butter and a body lotion, offering great hydration with a lightweight consistency which absorbs into the skin quickly and is perfect to layer on to the skin after using the Bath and Shower Nectar to intensify the fragrance. Elemis recommend applying the Body Balm to the feet before bed and putting on some cotton socks for a super nourishing treat overnight.
I am blown away by both of the QVC Elemis TSV – Give The Gift of Great Skin Collections as they’re such an incredible price considering the value of the products inside the Collection. The only hard decision is which one do you choose?! Or do you go for both?! I’d love to know if you’re going to be snapping up one of the sets this Sunday, and if you are planning on purchasing one make sure you do it as early as possible on Sunday morning as they will sell out very quickly just like all of the Elemis QVC TSV’s.
