QVC beauty bash and Decleor mini facial

Last Thursday I was able to visit QVC beauty bash, an annual event held in Islington, where regular QVC customers get a chance to meet the people behind their favourite brands, as well as the opportunity to sample the latest product launches:

Many of the brands were offering mini treatments, and at the back of the exhibition, there was everything from mini facials, to manicures and brow shaping on offer. I opted for a mini Decleor facial, and after being reassured that Bare Minerals would be on hand to do my make up after, I relaxed onto the couch and let my therapist analyze and treat my skin.

I've always suspected that my skin gets dehydrated in Winter, but it was good to have this confirmed by a beauty therapist. I also suffer from excessive oiliness, so she recommended the Decleor Flash radiance mask. This would help to boost my complexion, whilst at the same time purifying my skin. It's also good if you're in a rush, as it only takes 3 minutes to work.

Also a bit of a heads up if you're a Decleor fan, they'll be launching a new BB cream within the next few months.

Prior to the event, I knew QVC stocked a variety of make up and skincare, but I was shocked to see just how brands many were on display around the exhibition centre! I really liked the look and feel of Bare Minerals new Ready pressed foundation (a medium coverage lightweight powder), and it was great to have a little play with the much sought after Clarisonic mia (the brush head was so soft!).

Unfortunately we had to leave quite early, but I could have easily spent the whole day just exploring the different brands. Benefit and Philosophy looked like they had some really nice products on display, L'artisan and Penhaligons were showcasing some of their best selling fragrances, and I would have loved the opportunity to speak to OPI and see what exciting new launches they've got planned for this year.

Overall though, it was a fun filled morning, and it was great to catch up with all the other beauty bloggers. If you  get the chance to, then I would definitely recommend putting your name down for next year's QVC beauty bash ballot.

Have you done any shopping with QVC? What's your favourite skincare/make up brand?
