May Newsletter 2012

May Newsletter 2012

Welcome to the May newsletter where we take a look at new product launches and I tell you about the most outstanding range of hair care products that I have ever used! With much emphasis in the media on the importance of ‘green’ foods, Shabir investigates the green ingredient that really makes a difference to our health and wellbeing, I write about a product because I like its name (it just happens to be excellent too, of course!) and we bring you all the very latest from the VH Editorial Team. I’ll also be reporting on compromised skin conditions, news, feedback and (tra-la-la) Ms Josephine Fairley’s new book. Let’s go:

Phylia de M.

I once wrote an entire newsletter based upon living in a Utopian state where I wished that every product that I wrote about, worked for everybody. I also wrote that whilst we strive for this, I have to be realistic knowing that not all products worked for all people, but I would concede at a 98% success rate! I wrote that a few years ago and the same holds true today, except I’m now going for a 99% success rate as I invite you to join me in using three of the most spectacular hair-care products I have ever had my hands on!

When I was recently in LA, I was introduced to Phylia de M, a hair-care line that had just launched in the US. I have to be completely honest and say that I wasn’t overly-excited to carry another hair-care line because the market is pretty saturated, but that was before I met Kazu Namise and saw her hair. I wanted her hair. The word ‘unique’ is not a word that I throw around lightly, but Phylia de M truly is unique, and so are the results because I saw a difference in my hair on the first day and after several weeks of using the products, my hair has changed so significantly, I can barely believe it is my hair, but more on that later!

Phylia de M is specifically targeted for nurturing recovery from a variety of hair and scalp conditions such as excess hair loss, slow growth, thinning hair or limp lifeless hair and for those who have abused their hair via excess tinting, dieting or questionable styling techniques. The philosophy behind the range is that everyone’s hair has the potential to be amazing and ingredients include a blend of organic aloe, tannic acid (a plant-based reparative) and pure, humic-free fulvic acid, which provides vital keratin to cells and ‘reminds’ them to perform at optimum capacity. The products are as follows:

Clean Shampoo for Scalp and Hair: Clean is more than just a shampoo. It helps clear away damaging toxins and encourages cell and keratin renewal. This nourishing blend can also be used on brows to encourage new growth. With potent nutrients and an uplifting neroli orange blossom scent, Clean will bring your hair back to its best. To strengthen nails, wash hands with Clean and massage into nail beds. To strengthen eyebrow health, gently massage Clean into brow area and rinse. Love multi-taskers!
Clean £28 for 240 ml

Condition Cream Rinse or Leave-In for Hair: Condition is a nutrient-rich conditioner with soothing chamomile and deeply moisturizing ingredients, which can also be used as a daily leave-in for dry hair. Following Clean, work a generous amount of Condition from mid-hair to ends. Detangle gently and leave the treatment in for as long as you like and then rinse thoroughly. For an intense leave-in treatment, just apply a very small amount to the ends of damp or dry hair.
Condition £30 for 240 ml

Connect Treatment for Follicles, Scalp & Hair: The hero product! Connect is a cell restoration and keratin renewal treatment spray that will help transform your hair into its best condition. After showering, gently towel dry and part your hair into sections, spraying Connect directly onto the scalp and into hair. Do not rinse. Connect can also be used on dry hair for additional treatment or as a styling aid before blow-drying. This is Phylia de M’s most potent product – the more you use this spray, the more results you will see. Fact!
Connect £45 for 120 ml

There are a few occasions when I am so passionate about a brand that I want to own it myself and Phylia de M is one such brand. I suppose I will have to come to terms with the fact that I don’t own it, but please allow me to introduce you to Kazu Namise and Kidada Jones, the girls that do, as I invite you to read my recent interview with them. Their research and their story completely fascinates me.
Gill meets Kazu & Kidada

At this point, I just need to say that I am a huge advocate of products that treat the actual problem and get to the root (!) cause, instead of sticking a plaster on numerous hair issues that can only ever give superficial short-term results. My hair has never been better and the transformation began on the very first day I started to use the products; everybody who has been testing alongside me has said the same and bad hair days just don’t exist for any of us. For sure, these are investment products, but they are result-driven and they will last for approximately six weeks (if you are not heavy handed), or maybe longer if you don’t wash your hair every day. Kazu and Kidada are on a mission to revive and restore hair health globally and I will hold hands with them every step of the way, just because I can!
Phylia de M: Three Step Kit £103

Ultra Concentrated Liquid Chlorophyll

In the early 1900’s, chlorophyll was considered important in the alleviation of many common health concerns, including ulcers, pain relief, skin disorders and it was even used as a breath freshener. Together with numerous other herbs, chlorophyll was replaced by drugs and chemical antiseptics. However, the explosion of green super foods on the market in recent years has led to a renewed interest in chlorophyll and its numerous health benefits. The use of liquid chlorophyll is massive in the Far East and the trend is just about to hit hard in America, so we need to take a look at the reasons why this is just about to become a ‘buzz’ product in the Western hemisphere and why we should all be drinking it.

Today, the benefits of chlorophyll are numerous and in a special report, Shabir takes an in-depth look at chlorophyll. This report illustrates how chlorophyll oxygenates our bodies, because without sufficient oxygen our bodies become sluggish, energy production is greatly diminished and our metabolism drops. In 1931, the Nobel Prize Winner for physiology and medicine, Dr Otto Warburg, established that oxygen deprivation was a major cause of cell mutation. Increasing our intake of chlorophyll rich foods or taking chlorophyll by way of supplementation definitely helps increase oxygen uptake by the cells of our bodies. Chlorophyll is also an excellent colon conditioner and is often used to help inflammatory bowel disorders such as IBS, colitis and diverticulitis.

After having read much of the research and Shabir’s article, there is no doubt in my mind that chlorophyll plays a strategic role in our health and wellbeing, which is why Shabir and I are both taking it. As ever, all supplementation is not created equally and after scouring the world for the best chlorophyll, we are recommending World Organic’s Ultra Concentrated Liquid Chlorophyll. It’s really easy to take, just add a full dropper into a glass of water and drink it. Don’t be put off by the colour, it goes very green and looks rather vile, but actually it doesn’t really taste of anything, so don’t panic! Trending or otherwise, Chlorophyll rocks and I just love this stuff!
Ultra Concentrated Liquid Chlorophyll £25 for 59 ml (59 servings); VH Editorial: Go Super Green with Chlorophyll

Kiss it Better

I should really be including this product in the section on compromised skin conditions, which will appear later in this newsletter, but because it’s a new product and because I think the name of the product is adorable, I’m writing about it now. As a ‘some-time’ eczema sufferer, I know only too well that I can become immune to the benefits of various lotions and potions for that condition. It is for that reason that I’m on a constant search for new products that actually do what they say they will do and Kiss it Better does just that.

Although Kiss it Better has been specifically created for eczema prone skin, it is also brilliant for all sensitive skin issues and is a blend of soothing oils, vitamin E, rosehip oil, prebiotics and calendula. The inclusion of a natural prebiotic is important because it encourages the growth of probiotics, the good bacteria that helps make the skin less hospitable for harmful bacteria to survive.

Just so that you know, I have got a thing about this product. I love that rosehip oil is included, which is excellent for treating all kinds of inflammatory skin concerns, including acne and psoriasis, and I love that it probably has about 99 different uses, but I won’t list them all here. I will also say that if my face broke out (please, don’t let it happen!), then I would have no hesitation in using this gentle cream to help calm it down. It’s in my bathroom obviously and my love affair with small niche brands continues.
Kiss it Better £12 for 60 ml

Yoga For Life

When I received a pre-launch copy of Jo Fairley’s new book, Yoga for Life, I immediately had the most massive guilt trip because however much I adore yoga (and I do), I have monumentally lapsed and despite a rather feeble attempt a few years ago, I haven’t done one proper yoga stretch for about 15 years. Then I opened the book and read that Jo’s ultimate anti-ageing secret tip is to take up yoga and I wanted to shoot myself!

Now I am not easily swayed, but I am not being left behind either, so I started to turn the pages and I was hooked. This is a completely brilliant book and in it you will find all kinds of wonderful advice, such as the best postures for a good night’s sleep, yoga poses for different ailments, how to help treat hot flushes, banish the blues or fix a headache. The thing that I love about it is that it is really easy to follow and you don’t need to join a yoga class to benefit, because Jo takes you through all the postures, which you can do at home.

I absolutely know that this book will become an instant bestseller, just like the Beauty Bible series, and I also know that I am incredibly biased because I work really closely with Jo as she is a contributor to VH (and the newsletter – see later!), but with my hand on my heart I will tell you that this book is so incredibly inspirational, that just reading it makes you feel better without even putting one leg in the air! And to make my life complete, we have the only signed copies in the entire world – that we love!
Yoga For Life by Josephine Fairley £13.99 (RRP £16.99) Exclusively Signed Edition

Shavata creates exclusive products for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer

On last month’s newsletter I introduced you to brow guru, Shavata and her range of products, which are of course completely fabulous, so if you missed what I wrote then please click here.

Diosmin Plus – Poor Circulation

Millions of people worldwide suffer from diseases associated with poor circulation. Varicose veins, spider veins and haemorrhoids are just some of the common circulatory disorders that are directly associated with poor circulation. Circulatory concerns do not appear in a day and they are often a result of poor dietary and lifestyle choices, although they may also be associated with the ageing process. Poor circulation primarily affects the legs and feet, however, the implications of poor circulation are widespread and severe and can also include leg ulcers, tired and heavy legs, reduced libido, persistent wounds and infections, Restless Leg Syndome, shortness of breath and dizziness. In another investigative report, Shabir takes a look at the implications of poor circulation and writes about the latest cutting edge ingredient, Diosmin 95, which has been formulated to help ease circulatory problems. I’m sure The Legologist would approve!

Soothing Bowel Formula

Most people will experience constipation at some point in their lives, but for others it is a very common ongoing condition that can be tremendously uncomfortable. In most cases, constipation arises from insufficient amounts of fibre and fluid in the diet and it can give rise to many different ailments. Regular bowel function is an important mechanism for removing toxins from the body as the colon serves as a ‘holding tank’ for waste matter.

Soothing Bowel Formula helps provide nutritive support for a healthy digestive tract and to help support normal bowel function. It is packed with colon supporting herbs, including the following:

Rhubarb (root extract) has mild laxative properties to help support normal bowel movements.
Myrobalan (fruit extract) is an Ayurvedic herb containing vitamin C, important for reducing toxins.
Ginger root supports better digestion and absorption.
Peppermint leaf has a soothing effect on the digestive tract.
Aloe Vera gel helps support stomach and intestinal lining health.

This is a great formulation and in the vast majority of cases, this will help resolve most constipation issues. If you can, also try to eat more fibre, cut out fried foods and drink more water (preferably loaded with Chlorophyll – it will really help too).
Soothing Bowel Formula £11.72 for 60 Capsules

The Perfect Range from This Works

There are certain products that make their mark along the way and Perfect Cleavage falls into that category. I can still remember launching it and all these years later it is still a truly iconic product. Now, This Works have extended their perfect range, which are all designed to help boost their three-pronged approach to modern natural beauty: to heal, protect and enhance. Each of these new products hydrate and sooth, are rich in antioxidants Vitamins C and E, helping diminish pigmentation, whilst helping to fight signs of age.

Perfect Eyes £28 for 15 ml

News and Feedback

Heal Gel: After the recent Heal Gel famine, I am delighted (and relieved!) to tell you that Heal Gel is back in stock. By the time you read this, most of you on the ‘wait list’ will have received your orders, so just to apologise for the wait, but if it wasn’t so completely fabulous and it if didn’t do what it says on the jar, then nobody would want it! Also just to give you advance warning, I have a feeling that the price might be going up soon. Nothing has been confirmed and it is of course out of my control, but I’m telling you now because I don’t want to be hit over the head when it happens – it could ruin my fabulous Phylia de M hair!
Heal Gel £33.50

Instant Miracle Mask: Another victim of its own success and the wait list is very, very long. Again, I am so sorry about this, but I am being told that we should receive further stock within the next couple of weeks. I’m going to blame Jo Fairley because she has been telling everybody that after she used it, she looked 12 years old. If you are not on the wait list, perhaps you had better put yourself on it because I don’t want to disappoint anybody and knocking 44 years off your actual age sounds bizarrely attractive to me!!!
Instant Miracle Mask by Sarah Chapman £38 for 4 x 15g sachets

Spray di Sole: Sun Gelee and Liquid Bronzer: I’m so happy! I knew these products were completely brilliant and after I wrote about them on the April newsletter, the response from you has been amazing. I really thank those of you who have taken the time to let me know how fabulous you think they are because that really matters to me. At this point, I am actually going to throw my feet up onto my desk and tell you what the Beauty Bible girls thought of these products, as featured on their new blog, (do check it out) and I do this at the risk of Ms Fairley taking over this entire newsletter (she can buy me a cake, or perhaps I should buy her one!):

‘It was with the very, very greatest fear and trepidation that we tried Spray di Sole Sun Gelee. It’s all very well knowing that this bronzer/self-tanner is ‘taking Hollywood by storm’, but on this side of the pond, in April, it’s going to be used on skin which basically looks like its spent winter under a stone. Serious room for error here.

At first pump this looks scarily like Camp Coffee (remember that stuff …?). The thin, tan-tinted liquid’s also reminiscent of Guerlain’s long-lost Teint Creole, which was for years Beauty Bible’s go-to leg tint. (Very first we ever used, actually.)

The secret weapon, here, is the kabuki brush. We’d never have thought of putting on a face tint/self-tanner with a kabuki brush, but this one is synthetic and if you squirt one or two pumps into the bristles, that’s all that is need for an immediate glow, and longer-term tanning. Through the swirling action, it blends amazingly into skin for flawless results (not a word we use lightly) and because it’s tinted, you can see exactly where it goes. It features hyaluronic acid so it feels comfy on skin and make-up goes on easily, on top.

So far, so good. So far, so nail-biting, nonetheless, because exactly how dark would it go after eight hours development? The answer is: perfectly, lightly sun-kissed. Jo tried it before the weekend and has ever since had people telling her how well she looks, and asking if it was a Hastings tan – which it was. (Hastings being the sunniest spot in Britain). A total cheat, however, acquired in her bathroom, where frequent top-ups will be applied during the summer season. It’s a good wheeze and if you’re a real wuss, there’s a Liquid Bronzer version that washes right off again.’
Spray di Sole: Sun Gelee £42 (Two piece kit which includes 15 ml Sun Gelee and Kabuki Brush); Liquid Bronzer £42 (Three piece kit which includes 30 ml Liquid Bronzer, Kabuki Brush and a Refillable Atomizer)

Dry Eye Gel: This from Sarah Stacey’s Health Notes in YOU magazine: ‘As well as making eyes stream, hay fever tends to make the skin around them red, dry and sore. This summer I’m going to try Dry Eye Gel, which contains extract of cardiospermum, a plant that’s known to help dry and inflamed skin – I’ve used it successfully for eczema too. It is specially formulated to avoid aggravating existing conditions’. And just so that you know, the feedback about Dry Eye Gel has been really wonderful, so if you do suffer from ‘hay fever eyes’, then do try this. We also recommend Aller-DMG to help alleviate symptoms associated with hay fever and allergies. For the under 12’s, please use Alleraide Allergy Relief (it’s really great).
Dry Eye Gel £6.95; Aller-DMG £15.90 for 60 Tablets; Alleraide £12.25 for 40 Tablets

Skin Restoring Ceramides: From a customer (well, actually a VH Addict): ‘This is fabulous. Within a week I could see the benefit to my face – fine lines plumped out and skin much smoother and softer. But what I really love about this supplement is that it benefits not just your face, but all of your skin feels so much softer and that horrid winter dryness and tautness has gone’. Just so that everybody knows, Skin Restoring Ceramides are of course my secret weapon supplements for never, ever having ‘crocodile legs’ again. Never!
Skin Restoring Ceramides £25 for 30 Liquid Capsules

Focus on Compromised Skin Conditions

The skin is the body’s largest organ and it consists of three layers; the epidermis (outer layer); the dermis (middle layer) and the subcutaneous layer (inner layer). The skin acts as a shield between the body and the millions of foreign substances that exist in the environment. It also functions as a means of excreting toxins and other substances from the body, as the kidneys and bowels do. As a result, the skin is subject to the development of various bumps and blisters, as well as to changes in colour, cracking, dryness, flaking, itching, redness, roughness, scaling and a host of other problems. There are many reasons for skin reactions and I am going to throw the focus on some of the more common skin conditions together with product recommendations:


The cause of rosacea is still unknown, although it does tend to have a genetic disposition. What is clear is that something in the bloodstream triggers the swelling of the blood vessels, causing discomfort and inflammation of the skin. Spicy foods and alcohol tend to aggravate the concern, but are not the causal factors. The successful treatment of rosacea should be tackled internally and externally as follows:

Red Clover Combination is a supplement that contains a series of traditional herbs that help cleanse and purify the bloodstream from the toxins that inflame the skin. The ingredients include Red Clover and Echinacea, which have natural anti-inflammatory properties, together with Yellow Dock and Dandelion, which have mild diuretic properties to help eliminate toxins. Take one or two capsules daily with water and food.
Red Clover Combination £15.95 for 100 Capsules

Pycnogenol Redness Reducing Serum: Pycnogenol is an extract derived from pine bark and it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, as well as being an excellent antioxidant. Pycnogenol also helps to strengthen the collagen matrix and it therefore delivers a two-pronged solution. Firstly, it helps reduce redness and inflammation almost immediately, and secondly it helps strengthen the collagen matrix, which in turn helps reduce the capability of toxins to inflame the skin. Shabir really, really rates this product!
Pycnogenol Redness Reducing Serum by Derma E £23.50 for 60 ml

Prickly Heat

Prickly Heat, also known as miliaria, is an itchy rash of small, raised red spots that cause a stinging or prickling sensation on the skin. The rash can develop anywhere on the body, but it most commonly occurs on the face, neck, back, chest and thighs. Prickly Heat is a phytochemical reaction, causing the sun’s rays to release compounds in the bloodstream that trigger inflammation of the skin. We recommend two products to help prevent the onset of this condition:

Stinging Nettles Root: Nettle extracts are excellent detoxifiers for helping to remove inflammatory compounds as well as inhibiting histamine formation, an excess of which is responsible for numerous types of rashes as well as Prickly Heat. Just as a side note (whilst I’m at it!), this supplement has also been found to be useful to curtail heavy bleeding, so girls, if you suffer from heavy periods, do try this.
Stinging Nettles Root £14.95 for 120 Capsules

Sun ‘n’ Tan Skin Therapy Spray: We have recommended this product for many years as we still believe it to be the most effective topical for Prickly Heat. It is rich in important vitamins, omegas, minerals, flavonoids and essential oils that help take the stress out of the skin when you are in the sun. It also has the ability to neutralise free-radicals with a variety of powerful antioxidants, whilst helping to eliminate sun irritation and sun allergy. Sun ‘N’ Tan also helps promote skin tissue regeneration and is quickly absorbed into the skin. It is essential to use SPF protection with this product.
Sun ‘N’ Tan Skin Therapy Spray £20 for 100 ml

Keratosis pilaris

Keratosis pilaris is a common skin condition in which a protein in the skin, keratin, form hard plugs within hair follicles. It appears to be more common in people who have very dry skin, or suffer from eczema, and it seems to run in families. It is completely harmless, but symptoms include small bumps, often on the back of the upper arms and thighs, which feel like very rough sandpaper.

Skin Cream Plus: This is what we call our ‘default cream’ because it really helps clear so many skin conditions and allergic reactions. It contains a blend of anti-inflammatory herbs and oils that help calm the skin, whilst also working below the surface layers of the skin helping to reduce inflammation. The addition of gum extracts from Canadian conifers aid the healing process of skin. This can be used on the face as well as the body.
Skin Cream Plus For Extra Dry Skin £16.95 for 120 ml

Sore Red Facial Skin

This from Sarah Stacey’s Health Notes in YOU magazine a couple of weeks ago: A colleague who has suffered for years with sore red facial skin has seen an extraordinary improvement with Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil. She says, ‘A few drops soothed my skin instantly. After a few days my skin tone looked more even and the patches of pimply redness on my chin and cheeks became less obvious. My sisters commented on how clear, calm and radiant my complexion looked. I’m using less foundation and concealer now, and feel better about my skin than I have in years.’
Certified Organic Rosehip Oil £16.50 for 20 ml; Certified Organic Rosehip Oil £28.50 for 45 ml

VH Editorial

I have already written about some of the latest editorial, so just to complete the list, Kate Shapland finds her sanctuary in the gym (personally I would rather stick pins in my eyes, but we are all different!); the Beauty Bible girls offer tips for trips; Lulu reveals her stay-slim secrets and with the release of her new book, Jo Fairley writes about being a yoga bunny.

Products with Wings

As we come close to the end of another newsletter, here are a few of the products that have been flying out the door over the past couple of weeks:

Bamboo Extract: Amazing feedback about Bamboo Extract. This is the supplement that Shabir rates so highly for healthy hair, skin and nails that he wrote an article about it. It is THE perfect supplement to take alongside the Phylia de M hair care products, except of course if you are prone to hair loss, in which case we highly recommend Superior Hair.
Bamboo Extract £16.95 for 60 Capsules; Superior Hair £25 for 90 Capsules; VH Editorial: The Best Kept Secret for Healthy Hair, Radiant Skin and Strong Nails

Nail Magic: Leading on from Bamboo Extract for strong nails, Nail Magic really performs miracles and helps stimulate healthy nail growth. We have received so much feedback about the efficacy of this product, it would take an entire newsletter to post everything that you have said. So we just say thank you very much as we continue to paint this wonder product onto our nails.
Nail Magic £9.95

Superior Joints: After two product famines (and a massive headache), we are now fully stocked, which is just as well because I have received threatening emails (in the nicest possible way) that we can never, ever go out of stock again because according to so many of you, if you stop taking them, the pain returns. Superior Joints rules!
Superior Joints £29.95 for 60 Capsules; VH Editorial: Read this if you are taking Glucosamine and Suffer from Painful Joints

Chia Bia: Although Chia has been around for an awful long time, it has been all over the press recently and another product makes a resurrection! Chia seed is a nutrient powerhouse, high in omega 3, antioxidants, calcium and magnesium and is also an excellent source of protein and fibre. Just add 15g to cereals, drinks or salads to help create a balanced diet.
Chia Bia £12.99 for 315g

Jet Lag Prevention Tablets: This stuff really works, which would probably explain why it has been a bestseller in recent weeks. It combines six homeopathic remedies to help ease symptoms including insomnia, fractiousness and the sense of dislocation.
Jet Lag Prevention Tablets £13.40 for 30 Chewable Tablets

Super Strength Olive Leaf Extract: I wrote about this extraordinary supplement for hypertension (high blood pressure) on last month’s newsletter. If you missed it, then please click here, because the current research is strongly indicating that high concentrations of oleuropein, found in the leaf of the olive tree, have a very beneficial effect on blood pressure.
Super Strength Olive Leaf Extract £25 for 60 Capsules; VH Editorial: Even Moderately High Blood Pressure Can Lead to a Magnitude of Complications

As we come to the end of another newsletter, I would just like to thank each of you for your amazing support and loyalty. Without you there would be no mission, so on behalf of Shabir, the VH Team and the Editorial Team, I hope you have a wonderful May and please let the sun shine at some point (preferably on 19th May when Sarah Stacey is getting married!).

With love
