NEW QV SKINCARE PRODUCTS TO HIT SHELVES FOR SPRING 2015: FEAT. QV SKINCARE RANGE - QV HAND CREAM SPF15 + QV SHOWER MILK REVIEW!


HEY BEAUTIES! 

QV introduces their NEW products to the skincare range featuring their SPF15 Hand Cream and also their Shower Milk. 

I looked to put the new QV bath and skincare products to the test. I've always been a great fan of QV skincare products because they're usually my go-to-products when it comes to replenishing and ensure that my skin is fully moisturised. There's nothing as worse as having dry and flaky skin, which is why making sure you are using the right products is essential to your daily skin routine. That is why I am sharing with you all today with what I thought about QV's new Hand Cream in SPF15 protection along with their Shower Milk range. 

Check it out below lovelies xx



QV HAND CREAM IN SPF 15+ IN 50G
QV introduces a hand cream which offers a touch of sun protection, i.e. SPF15+ and in this case, I constantly use hand creams every day to prevent my hands from getting really dry. But what makes this QV hand cream much different from the rest is that it contains SPF15 which protects the hand from the UV rays. The formula is non-greasy and so easy to apply. Ideally, if you have this tube near your desk or computer, make sure that you look to apply onto the hands every few hours or so or even after washing your hands. 

Sometimes we forget to really look to take more care with our hands because we only focus on the facial skin. However, did you know that if your hands aren't taken good care of, they can really look to give away your age. I know for a fact that when I do forget to apply hand cream to my hands, it would look so dry and flaky. 

When I first used the QV Hand Cream in SPF15, I instantly noticed that it gave a surge of moisture to my skin without having that greasy feeling which was really ideal for me. No-one likes to have a handcream that leaves your hands feeling greasy! I could feel the cream being easily absorbed into my skin. Overall the hand cream is made to really nourish and protect the hands and keep nails and cuticles well-conditioned. 

Dr Kerryn Greive PhD, Scientific Affairs Manager at Ego Pharmaceuticals led the formulation of the QV Hand Cream SPF 15 and says the importance of protecting our hands for the long term is becoming more important as Australian’s are increasingly educated on the effects of UV on the skin. 
“About 80 percent of premature skin ageing is caused by UV exposure and we’re often most weary of this on our face – but we need to also protect our hands, which is one of our most exposed body parts.
“We’re constantly washing our hands throughout the day so a light, moisturising SPF 15 formula like QV Hand Cream SPF 15 is easy and ideal to reapply with” added Dr Greive. 
“Moisturisers help with hydration and the appearance of fine lines and the SPF helps to prevent photo-ageing” added Dr Greive.

Also, with the QV Hand Cream in the SPF 15, the product actually uses a triple moisturising approach that features the Humectant. The Emollient and Occludent moisturisers and is also pH balanced to really maintain the skin's natural balance. There's no colour or any particular fragrance to the cream nor is there glycol and lanolin which can be really harmful for the hand. The good thing about using this hand cream is that it's super gentle to use. 

If you were wondering what were the key ingredients they include: 

  • Glycerin - which naturally occurs in the body and skin; the skin looks to transport it into the skin cells (taking water with it) and also the skin's hydation correlates with the glycerin level. 
  • Cetearyl Alcohol - Forms a film on the skin where this actually helps to reduce any water loss. 
  • Overall, from using the cream, it looks to deliver softness to any dry prone areas whilst also helping to keep water in the skin. 

Overall, this particular hand cream looked to keep my hands feeling nourished and hydrated after every use. I would look to re-apply the cream after washing my hands (which may be a few hours here and there). My hands would then feel super soft and non-greasy. It's amazing what this hand cream can do for your hands, and what's more is that it contains SPF15+ which means it protects your hands from further ageing, sunspots, pigmentation and even sunburns from the UV rays. 

BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Use soap free washes if you can. (Soap dries out the skin) 
  • Keep the hand cream in your bag or somewhere close by. 
  • Suitable to use by those who experience dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • Available in 50g RRP $6.05
  • The QV range is available exclusively from pharmacies nationally.

QV SHOWER MILK IN 250ML 

QV looks to introduce their Shower Milk range which looks to replenish your skin's natural moisture while you shower. I always shop for a good shower milk that can really look to provide me with the best luxurious experience as possible. Of course, the product has to look to nourish my skin and leave it feeling super smooth afterwards. 

Thanks to their NEW Shower Milk by QV, now I can look to enjoy a really luxe shower as this is a very luxurious, lightweight body milk that will not dry out my skin. If anything, it looks to replenish my skin's natural moisture by making it look visibly healthier, soft and smoother than ever. My first impressions of using this shower milk was that it was very gentle on my skin and I did not experience any irritations or redness at all. I found it suitable for my skin and this would definitely suit those with dry, scaly skin, rashes, sun damaged and dermatitis affected skin. If you are looking for a product that really hydrates the whole body, then this new addition from the QV range is amazing. It left my skin feeling very moisturised and light. The body milk itself is also lightweight and does not feel thick or anything. 

The ingredients present in the Body Milk by QV actually looks to reduce water loss which then helps to lock in any moisture on your skin. Hence you don't feel any dryness after using the body milk. It's a clear formula that is not greasy which provides for a comfortable application whilst in the shower. By using this product, we're able to rejuvenate large areas of the dry or sensitive skin. 

The product has a low-irritant formula making it suitable for all skin types to use. It is also free from any fragrance, colour, lanolin and propylene glycol - making this the ultimate gentle product to use for when you're needing a boost to your hydration levels to the skin. It's super easy to wash with whilst in the shower and the best thing about it is that everyone is the household can use this product. 

The key ingredients listed in the products in case you were curious include: 
  • Light Liquid Paraffin - which promotes rehydration and suppleness of the skin; and also reduces any water loss from the outer layer of the skin. 
  • Gelled Paraffin - this promotes skin occlusivity and also reduces water loss by ensuring that the moisture stays on your skin! 

Ideally, I would use this shower milk product on a daily basis in the shower. I usually get itchy and dry skin from time to time and with constant use a of a gentle and safe product, I am reassured that this product can help restore the moisture back to my skin. It's handy to always have in the shower because not only can you use this as a body wash, but it's even gentle to use on the face. So this multi-function product provides a great feature to those seeking many benefits gained from using the Shower milk by QV,

  • To help keep skin maintained on a healthy basis, avoid soap and moisturise frequently. 
  • Use a shower loofah to massage the body milk over the dry prone areas of the skin.
