Just when you think that there couldn’t possibly be any further beauty treats to look forward to, then SBC create a Today’s Special Value which is exclusive to QVCUK and will launch on the 29th December 2016, that contains one of my most loved and most consistently used products, to be the cherry on top what has been a fantastic year for this brand.
I am of course referring to SBC’s Arnica range, which I have used for more than 20 years now all over my body to combat sore muscles, aches, pains and even to reduce the look of eye bags. It’s fantastic to see the long standing and trusted Arnica skincare gel, combined with newer formulations which have been added to the range, due to the popularity.
If you are new to the SBC range, they are a British company that used to be a secret that beauty therapists only had access to, but thanks to Alison Young who shared this simple fuss free range on QVCUK, allowing everyone to try these high quality ingredients in the comfort of our own home. This is how I discovered SBC and I have come to rely on this effective and dependable brand, who offer large guilt free sizes to indulge me entire body with these homeopathic remedies.
Item 218780 – SBC 5 Piece Arnica Heroes Skincare Collection £31.98 RRP
£168 and available on Auto Delivery
- 2 x Arnica Skincare Gel 1000ml – This is a must have Desert Island product, as I have come to rely on this lightweight water based gel formula on a daily basis. Whether I am applying to sore muscles after working out, tired feet from lots of walking or on my forehead to ease a headache or perhaps under my eyes to help reduce the look of swollen eye bags, this Arnica gel makes light work of easing all of these aches and pains. I always reach for this if I am doing body massages on friends and family as I know after the massage is over the benefits of the Arnica will continue to ease and relax their muscles to see a real difference. My Dad is also a massive fan, since I introduced him to this product, as he now always keeps a bottle by his bed, so when he wakes up it is the first thing he applies to his joints to combat his painful Arthritis. One of my top tips is to keep a small pot filled with Arnica gel in the fridge to apply around my eyes on a morning, to take down the puffiness.
- Arnica Shower Creme 500ml – I am a big fan of the Arnica muscle soak, so I was excited to try this shower creme as my skin has been feeling drier with the cold weather and I wanted to still enjoy the powerful benefits of Arnica whilst giving my skin a quench of hydration. This also combines powerful essential oils of Lavender & Rosemary which add to the delicious aroma, allowing me to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. There is nothing to say you can’t use this in the bath as it gives a wonderfully delicate foam.
- 2 x Arnica & Black Pepper Warming Body Creme 100ml – This is the newest addition to the Arnica range, but don’t be fooled by the size of this very powerful product, as one pump is all you need to feel the effectiveness of this formula. I personally like to use this mainly on my back and shoulders, if I’ve had a very strenuous day and need an extra concentrated boost to work quickly. This formula combines the power of Arnica with Cinnamon Bark, Wintergreen and Black Pepper seed oil to supercharge the body. As the name suggest there will be a warming sensation that occurs when applied to your problem areas, so I would always reccomend to use a very small amount as a test patch, so you know what to expect. Also never apply to any broken skin and avoid delicate or intimate areas and once applied always wash your hands, as you wouldn’t want to touch your face or eyes with these active ingredients. This product is best for anyone who is serious about exercise, that possibly works out most days of the week to really help with aiding the muscle recovery process, likewise it’s perfect for someone with a very inactive lifestyle that has painful joints or muscles, as this will help to ease any pain or discomfort.
Overall I am amazed by the amount of product that is in this collection, I’ve never seen an SBC TSV that has two 1000ml products in it before, which just goes to show how popular it is with the viewers of QVC as it has twice won an award in the QVCUK Beauty Excellence Awards. Also this collection allows you to stock up and never run out of these much loved essentials, but also gives you the opportunity to introduce a friend or loved one to the range. I will personally be treating my Dad to one of the litres of Arnica Gel and one of the warming body cremes as he’s yet to try this formulation.
The SBC Arnica range is a Desert Island must have essential for me, I couldn’t be without these fantastic powerful formulations and I’m sure you will feel the same way too.
I hope you can join the wonderful Adele O’Donoghue at midnight on the 29th December for the launch of this outstanding collection, to learn more hints and tips, how to get the most out of this collection.
