Shopping channel QVC has shaken off its dated reputation, thanks to an online emporium of beauty brands we can all snap up at discounted prices. Want proof? These are our pick of the products to look out for...
The famous TV shopping channel has been selling high-quality goods for more than 20 years, from sparkling jewellery to high-tech electronics. But did you know that the great deals and discount offers aren’t just available on television? You can also shop online! Here at w&h we’re big fans of QVC beauty buys, which is why we’ve rounded up our top five products currently available on their website.
The great thing about QVC beauty products is that they’re often better priced than what you’ll find on the high street – not to mention the many flash deals and discounts that are available if you time it right! They’re also a highly trusted brand that offer a 30-day payback guarantee if you’re not satisfied with your product. Shopping from the comfort of your home has never been easier.
One of our favourite beauty buys at the moment is the skincare range from Sarah Chapman. You might not be familiar with British beauty guru Sarah Chapman, but most of Hollywood is. The stars have flocked to facialist Chapman for her transformative anti-ageing skincare treatments and insider tips on achieving plump, glowing skin.
Thankfully, Sarah decided to share her expertise with all of us when she launched her skincare line, Skinesis in 2008 and the line is available on QVC beauty featuring ongoing discounted prices. Sarah’s products combine unique natural-based formula ingredients with breakthrough cosmeceutical science – it’s no wonder that the skincare line has garnered a global following.
Our standout product? The brilliant Skinesis Overnight Facial. It’s the closest you’ll come to experiencing Sarah’s signature facial and is packed with vitamins, antioxidants and collagen boosters to leave your skin plump, rejuvenated and radiant.
Buy Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial on QVC for £39.60 – a saving of £5.40.

If you're already in the Benefit fan club then you'll know this brand offers some of the most incredible make-up products in the business. Sometimes still seen as a cultish, under-the-radar beauty line, the truth is Benefit is a global big hitter and with good reason.
QVC has 33 core Benefit beauty products, including what we consider the make-up bag essential: the Hoola Bronzing Powder. Loved by make-up artists, thanks to its natural appearance on the skin, there's no hint of orange or shimmer (an instant ager), just a flawless sun-kissed shade.

If you're a dab hand at painting your nails at home then Nails Inc features in QVC's special prices area, discounted even further from its usual high street cost.

James Read is big in the tanning world - and when we say big, he's stocked in more beauty outlets (from M&S to net-a-porter.com) than any other tanning brand.

The ultimate expert on achieving a natural-looking, flawless fake tan, James knew exactly what his tanning line needed to deliver - and now it's all available on QVC.
James has been the leader in developing face tanners and our top tip is his Sleep Mask Tan which combines beauty benefits (anti-ageing hyaluronic acid, red algae) with a golden tanning shade.
