Have day off and was watching with friend..spent nearly £50 !!!!
ybf eye trio thingy and alpha h trio.

last time I turn that channel on

JemimaPuddle Mon 24-Feb-14 17:24:14

It's so easy. Definitely don't download the app then, 3 steps and its bought!

It's too easy.

I have to confess that I am a bit addicted to QVC, but I have to say that I LOVE the YBF eyebrow pencil.

But yeah...don't download the app. Big mistake. HUGE.

I'm glad the eyebrow pencil is good. the bargain was too good to not buy!! eyebrow/eyeliner/mascara for £16.50 including p&p!

aylesburyduck Mon 24-Feb-14 19:07:09

damn you ggirl grin

my finger slipped on my QVC app and I bought it (and it's just sold out ha ha!!)

ggirl Mon 24-Feb-14 19:12:36

hahahaha-sorry..tis a bloody bargain though

JemimaPuddle Mon 24-Feb-14 19:28:18

The Alpha H trio is an absolute bargain too.

aylesburyduck Mon 24-Feb-14 19:52:47


<just going to have a quick look at Alpha H>


ggirl Mon 24-Feb-14 20:00:18

It so is!
The serum is more on it's own than the trio price!

aylesburyduck Mon 24-Feb-14 20:10:26

Hmmmmmm... tempting...

I have decided that what I'll do is pm you whenever there is something on that I fancy. You can buy it and then let me know if it's any good grin

I do think QVC are great value and their customer service is fabulous.

CecyHall Mon 24-Feb-14 20:11:58

Oh my goodness, why did I read this bloody thread. I really want the Alpha H set.

Does it get reduced often like some things on there or is it a rare discount?

ggirl Mon 24-Feb-14 20:13:54

God the slippery slope of QVC..who'd have thought!

I thought it was all saucepans and wolf fleeces

ggirl Mon 24-Feb-14 20:14:27

Think it's a one off bargain cecy

JemimaPuddle Mon 24-Feb-14 20:14:52

Cecy a lot of brands they do have this sort of deal 3:4 times a year. Alpha H is always only once a year smile

JemimaPuddle Mon 24-Feb-14 20:15:11

3/4 not 3:4

JemimaPuddle Mon 24-Feb-14 20:17:26

ggirl step away from it now, it will only lead to addiction!

Loads of beauty stuff (that's all I watch on there), really well known brands like Decleor & Elemis too.

Oh and there's a QVC beauty channel....

MissMilbanke Mon 24-Feb-14 20:19:35

I got suckered into the bare minerals 5 essentials the other day.

Arrived quickly and I must admit to bring a leet le bit disappointed when I found they were small sizes. Still I consoled myself that for £20 was a bargain and would be useful for holidays.

On the plus side its curbed my habit ....

JemimaPuddle Mon 24-Feb-14 20:29:30

Miss send it back if you don't like it you'll get a full refund (less p&p)

70isaLimitNotaTarget Mon 24-Feb-14 20:34:58

sbc = simply beautiful cosmetic- gel treatments in huuge bottles

philosophy - hope in a jar

i have the ybf eyebrow pencils - gorgeous

CecyHall Mon 24-Feb-14 20:36:57


Now stop putting threads up to tempt me! I'm supposed to be on a self prescribed spending ban but this is the 7th thing I've bought in a week. But I was going to buy the Ren Glycolactic mask so this is just in place of that.

ggirl Mon 24-Feb-14 20:41:36

ok no more looking for another month...promise

aylesburyduck Mon 24-Feb-14 20:43:36

<dashes in just very quickly so as not to encourage further purchasing>

Tell me about hope in a jar...I've always been tempted to try it.

<dashes back out's like I was never here ha ha>

70isaLimitNotaTarget Mon 24-Feb-14 21:10:13

Seeing as you didn't really ask aylesbury wink

I love HIAJ - it's rich but light, when you apply it , the cream melts.
I have a 'normal' skin, no issues (I'm 47) so it suits me well.
Bit of a weirdy smell though...

The Philosophy product I love most is a bottle of serum in a blue bottle (Hope is Not Enough Replenishing Serum) Smells like flowers smile and it's really good as a night treatment.

I really wish they would bring Molton Brown back. They always used to do amazing tSVs until they started to include heavenly ginger lily too much.
