QV Skin Care Through The Generations & GIVEAWAY

QV is one of those staple tried and tested brands that has always played a part in my skin care regime.

It is a skin care brand that is specifically recommended to people with sensitive skin and conditions such as eczema, and as a result QV products are also a lot kinder to people with 'normal' skin too!

If you love QV then keep reading as there is a giveaway at the end of this post to win a generous hamper of QV products.

QV Skin Care Through The Generations

I can't actually remember the first time I used QV. It would have been when I was growing up and living in my childhood home. I just remember that it has always been a part of my life.

Now that I'm grown up, with my own family of three children to look after and set up with good skin care habits QV is still an important part of my life and theirs. 

I started using QV on my children's skin when they were babies and thus they probably won't remember when they first started using it either. They'd just know that QV has always been a part of their lives too!

Being a beauty blogger I trial a large number of skin care and cosmetics products and treatments. 

I don't consider myself to have sensitive skin but every now and then a product or treatment will react and irritate my skin and that's when I reach for my trusted QV range of products.

One recent example of my skin reacting to a beauty treatment was when I started trialing an epilator for the first time last month. My skin reacted with redness and irritation immediately after this treatment and every subsequent epilating session I've done. So to help calm it down and reduce the discomfort I've been using the QV Gentle Wash and QV Skin Lotion each time after I use the epilator. It is so soothing.

QV Skin Lotion & QV Gentle Wash

QV Gentle Wash
This is a lovely and mild soap-free cleanser that maintains your skin's hydration and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, not dry and tight. It is perfect for using on my irritated skin after epilating. 

I also use this QV Gentle Wash in winter when my legs tend to become super dry and dehydrated.

QV Skin Lotion
This is a white, luxuriously light moisturising lotion. It is very easy to apply and is perfect for relieving and helping to prevent dry skin.

It is non greasy and soaks in super fast after a shower or bath so there is no standing around in the nude and waiting for it to absorb.

QV Skin Lotion is most effective in helping to repair my skin, and it feels so soothing after my use of the epilator.

QV Face Gentle Cleanser, Ultra Calming Moisturiser,
Revitalising Eye Cream & Nurturing Night Cream.

QV also have a range of face skin care products including the following.

QV Face Gentle Cleanser
All three of my teen children use this soap free gentle facial cleanser. It is enriched with Vitamin E and leaves the skin fresh, soft and moisturised. Like all QV Face products it is soap, fragrance and colour free, non-comedogenic so it won't block pores, and has been dermatologically tested. I am so happy to have all three of my children, including my boys, in a good facial cleansing routine.

I use this cleanser as well when I feel my face needs some gentle TLC treatment and I need a break from other cleansers I might be trialing.

QV Face Ultra Calming Moisturiser
This is a great daily non greasy moisturiser that acts to calm and soothe the skin. It is enriched with Pro Vitamin B5 & Vitamin B3. Once again like all these products it is designed for irritated and sensitive skin.

It is suitable for use under makeup.

QV Face Nurturing Night Cream
This night cream contains Vitamin B3 complex and safflower oil. The safflower oil replenishes moisture levels while the Vitamin B3 helps to reduce skin sensitivity. This product also improves skin elasticity and minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Yes please!

QV Face Revitalising Eye Cream
This product also contains safflower oil and is formulated to reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines for sensitive skin. It has a beautiful lightweight consistency and results in smoother refreshed looking skin. Another product that's perfect for my 40+ year old skin!

QV products are widely available to purchase from chemists nation wide or from the QV online shop.

  6. I love the way QV products aren't pretentious or inferior products wrapped up in fancy packaging; just simple, effective, honest skincare.

  7. I love QV products for my sensitive and eczema prone skin. I discovered them while in a desperate search for something to help my youngest daughter with her eczema. Only a week ago my middle daughter moved back home and started complaining about dermatitis that shes having problems with on her entire chin area. I gave her a bottle of the QV Gentle Cleanser and it seem to be working well for her. So thats three of us that are using these products. Ive only tried the Gentle cleanser and the hand cream and would love to try the other products in the range.

    Both my 8 year old son and myself have sensitive skin. In winter it goes to extremes and we have to make sure we use high quality sensitive skin products (QV is my favourite of course!). This hemaper would be very well received in our house :)

  31. Eczema and psoriasis is not Fabulous & Fun Life,
    Made worse in winter when dry skin is rife.

    To ensure my family continue to move and flourish.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love QV because it has helped my family, where half of us, suffer from skin issues such as dry skin or eczema. I love that it's so easy to buy, so affordable and suitable for the whole family.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My youngest daughter's skin is so very dry
    Particularly on her legs, I'm not sure why
    In winter, it worsens and feels so rough
    I've tried washes and creams and lots of stuff
    But the dryness persists, it's such a shame
    To try different brands yet find the results are the same
    So I'm hoping that if I win this fabulous (and fun) QV prize
    Her skin will soften and desensitize.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love gentle products. My skin would love these. Is the giveaway AU only? xo

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love that QV is for all ages. As I get older I find that I need more gentle products. I've heard of QV but never tried it so will look out for it next time I need some skincare.

  49. QV is one of those brands that I don't think I've ever heard a bad word about!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have used Cleanser, wash and lotion, I love all of them. No doubt these are the best products for sensitive skin.

    ReplyDelete
  51. We've used QV over the years for my son's eczema which has recently fared up again. So soft and gentle on inflamed skin, especially now the weather is cooling down and indoor heating plus cold winds are drying out our skin. Just another reason I dislike winter!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Its the only products we use. Coming from a family with extremely sensitive skin this is the go to for us

    ReplyDelete
  53. QV has been the only product since my son was born that doesn't break him out in a rash - I should have bought shares in it!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love how QV is so gentle on skin and with my sons skin being more sensitive this pack will be perfect for everyday use

    ReplyDelete
  55. Qv is the only moisturizer that doesnt give me dry spots! i love QV and would love to be a brand ambassador for them, with all these amazing products! i have my own blog and channels to share pics thanks

  59. I have used QV before and not really sure why I didn't buy it again, interested to look into the night cream and moisturiser as I am almost out of what I am using at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I used to sell this stuff like crazy when I worked in a pharmacy but weirdly I have never tried it myself. I don't know why but I need to.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I am yet to try the QV range, sounds like great skincare! xx

  62. Loved this review Ingrid - my intro to QV products was when I won the whole set from another kind blogger a few years ago. Everything in their range is so gentle and effective, and the quality is exceptional - there's always something QV in my kit xxx
