I’m sure I’m not the only one, who many years ago now, loved watching the talented Kate Ritchie play Sally Fletcher on the well loved Australian TV series Home and Away, one of my favourite shows at the time!
Well, Kate has since left Home and Away but has recently been named as the ambassador for a well loved Australian family owned skincare brand, QV. The QV range is another favourite of mine!
As a result I was more then happy when the opportunity arose to trial this latest QV body range of products, as loved and used by none other than Kate Ritchie, and write these QV skincare reviews to share with you.
I hope you find the QV products review you’re looking for in this article to answer any questions you may have.
QV Body Range including QV Wash, QV Gentle Wash, QV Intensive Moisturising Cleanser, QV Skin Lotion & QV Cream.
QV Skincare Reviews
QV is a skincare 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!
QV products are uncomplicated, containing no hidden and unnecessary nasties. QV products are perfume free, colour free, propylene glycol free, pH balanced, dermatologically tested and lanolin free.
QV products are formulated with glycerin at varying levels to optimally benefit different degrees of skin dryness. Glycerin is a humectant which draws water to the skin and holds it in the skin, providing and maintaining hydration.
QV products are developed to work in harmony with the skin and are suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Read the QV reviews below to find the most appropriate QV product for your skin’s specific needs.
QV Wash Review
QV Wash is a lovely and mild soap-free cleanser. It is a thickish, milky coloured lotion and contains 10% glycerin.
I found it to be lightly foaming and it left my skin feeling clean, hydrated and soft to touch after my shower.
I love how QV Wash is effective yet gentle. It didn’t strip away any of my skin’s natural oils.

QV Gentle Wash Review
I found the QV Gentle Wash to be very similar to the QV Wash. However, I don’t have sensitive skin or any other skin conditions such as dermatitis or eczema etc so I’m less likely to experience the difference.
A couple of my friends do have children with eczema and they swear by this product saying it’s the one product that doesn’t irritate their children’s skin whatsoever! Based on their experiences with this product I’m happy to recommend it to you if you do have sensitive skin or a skin condition requiring a specifically gentle body wash. Other QV Body Wash reviews also recommend this product for people with sensitive skin.
QV Gentle Wash contains 15% glycerin.

QV Intensive Moisturising Cleanser Review
QV Intensive Moisturising Cleanser is ideal for people with extremely dry and sensitive skin. It contains 60% glycerin.
I found it to also have a lightly foaming formulation. It leaves a hydrating film on your skin and left my skin feeling clean, hydrated and amazingly soft. Every other QV cleanser review I have read has been similarly positive. My legs usually feel quite dry after I shave them in the shower so lately QV Intensive Moisturising Cleanser has been my product of choice to apply as a cleanser in the shower after shaving them. I love that the process of hydrating and moisturising my skin can start in the shower.

QV Skin Lotion Review
QV Skin Lotion contains 5% glycerin and is a white, luxuriously light moisturising lotion.
Similar to every other QV lotion review that I have read I found this lotion very easy to apply and perfect for relieving and helping to prevent dry skin.
I love how non greasy this skin lotion is and how quickly my skin soaks it all in after my shower. There’s no waiting required before getting dressed – Yay!

As with many products it’s a lot more economical to buy the largest size!
QV Cream Review
QV cream has a thicker consistency than the QV lotion and is more highly concentrated to moisturise drier skin. This cream contains 10% glycerin and is perfect for replenishing the skin and helping to relieve dry areas. I found it worked especially well on those notoriously dry areas of my body, namely my elbows, knees and hands. Despite it’s thicker consistency this cream still absorbed into my skin surprisingly quickly and left my skin feeling beautifully nourished and soft.
