January Newsletter

Janurary spelled with fruit and vegetables

Hello 2019, hello January and hello and welcome to the first newsletter of the year where we have several new launches to talk about. These include products from Garden of Wisdom (of course), Ameliorate and the Vitality Revealed range from Nannette de Gaspé. And then there are the new brands, The Truthbrush (anything with the word ‘truth’ in it is good with me) and Lebon Toothpaste.

Before we begin, I need to tell you that in many ways this is a continuation of the December newsletter (the VH Awards). Throughout I will be referring back to some of those awards as we stand together and share together. Further in the newsletter I will be writing about a ‘Token of Appreciation’ (TOA), but before we get there, there are a few TOA’s scattered around and it gives me the greatest pleasure to share these with you as we continue to keep it real.

Keeping it real is fundamental in all that we are and all that we do together. Together with Shabir, I absolutely pledge to keep it real throughout 2019. It will become evident what we are doing and why we are doing it over time. Let’s go: Read More…

December Newsletter

victoria health awards

Voila. It’s the last newsletter of the year, so hello and welcome to the VH Awards 2018. As ever, nobody has voted, which makes me happy for several different reasons, not least because I have no desire to bombard any of you with ‘vote for’ emails when you could be watching a box set, having a bath or be sleeping in bed.

The awards are based on facts, although I have allowed myself some creative license here and there. There are treats attached to some of the awards, but not all awards have products attached to them. Each of the awards given are representative of the journey throughout this year, which has been interesting for many different reasons. Life works in mysterious ways and I fully embrace that as we uphold the thing that matters most to us, namely helping to make a positive difference in all that we do.

So having declared to the VH Addicts that there wouldn’t be any more product launches this year, I eat my words once again. Here we are and here we go: Read More…

November Newsletter

newsletter-november-2018

Hello and welcome to the November newsletter where, once again, we talk about skincare wardrobes as we celebrate the launch of a new skincare brand, which virtually sold out when we released it to the VH Addicts two weeks ago. We also launch the fourth product in the Ful.Vic.Health series and we do the feedback on the shampoo, conditioner and mist, which kind of blew us away.

Additionally we launch ilapet, which we believe are ‘the perfect remedies for peaceful pooches’ and there are a few treats somewhere below. Shabir takes an in-depth look at joint supplements and he also writes about Moringa Powder. We have a new product from RoadScents, which I love and as ever we have this month’s feature articles, one of which may be a touch controversial, but never mind that, we tell it as it is. Always have, always will. Right, it’s another long one, so let’s do it: Read More…

Beneath The Layers: Winter Body Care

beauty-bible-feet

You know that saying, ‘Out of sight, out of mind?’ Well, that’s how an awful lot of women of our acquaintance regard the skin under their clothing, during the cold months. We pile on the vests, socks, gilets, gloves, scarves, tights – often all at once, resembling some kind of Michelin woman, when the weather’s bad enough. And unless we heat our houses to tropical levels (which at Beauty Bible we definitely don’t), there’s definitely no temptation to dance around naked, or even near-naked, at home. Read More…

Ameliorate

Travel-Size Beauty Kit: The Best Products Under 100ml

 

  • I don’t know what I did before I discovered Victoria Health. Its co-founder Gill Sinclair is my oracle, introducing me to new and small beauty brands and health supplements for every complaint. I’ve never met her, but I religiously read her newsletter and buy everything she recommends. Gill loves Ameliorate body lotion, which was developed thanks to one woman’s dissatisfaction with her ‘chicken skin’. The main ingredient is lactic acid, a mild yet powerful exfoliator that keeps on working to get rid of dead cells long after you’ve rubbed your cream in. I never doubted Gill, but this is very, very good for dry skin. No more lizard legs, rough bumps are evened out and skin is noticeably softer to the touch. Personally, I prefer the fragrance-free version, as I don’t like my body lotion and perfume to clash.

July Newsletter

Cactus

Hello and welcome to the July newsletter where we exclusively launch a magnificent new product for Color Wow together with several new product launches from Better You. I write about the return of Phylia de M (please don’t fall over) and we throw the focus on the result-driven skincare brand that is knocking everything out of the water and has sent me spinning.

Additionally we take a look at some common health concerns, which include Candida and Lyme Disease; with Ionicell holding its position as our bestselling supplement since its launch, we dig deeper into its assets and I jump onto The Podium somewhere in the middle of all of this and hold hands with Lisa Armstrong. Finally, and this will arrive in no particular order, I have a whole list of people I need to thank, which will appear here, there and everywhere, there is an also an update on Soul Medicine and a Summer Essentials Kit. Let’s do it: Read More…
