The C List Launches

by | Feb 5, 2021

Lisa Potter-Dixon and Helen Addis launched The C List on 4th February 2021, World Cancer Day.

Described as more than a beauty shop, The C List has there’s tips, tricks, advice and inspirational stories to help get you through your journey, as well as the ability to buy products.


About The C List:


“The C List is the passion project of Lisa and Helen. Lisa Potter-Dixon (@LisaPotterDixon) is a leading beauty industry expert and 3 time best selling author whilst Helen Addis is a cancer survivor/beauty jiver (is that a thing?), TV producer and Mum.

When diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer in 2018 Helen (aka @TheTittyGritty) was told to only use super mild and less fragranced beauty products during and after treatment. From mascara to suncream, moisturiser to shampoo, Helen had to rethink her entire bathroom cabinet. The shopping experience was far from easy. If you’re Vegan (1 in 100 Brits are) you head to the Vegan section. If you’re after gluten-free (1 in 10) it’s easily signposted or labelled. But if you’ve got cancer and need gentle products then retailers really don’t cater for you…which doesn’t make sense when 1 in 2 British people get the disease. That’s 1000 people every single day who potentially need to rethink their products. Why should we be left feeling so alone?

Being dealt a life threatening illness, losing her breast and her hair, Helen wanted desperately to feel and look the same. The whole shopping experience she found overwhelming and upsetting.

When Lisa and Helen discussed this on an Instagram live during lockdown it had an overwhelming response from fellow cancer patients who felt the same. From this, C list was created.  It’s the ultimate guide to beauty products you can use when you’re going through treatment for cancer and beyond. Recommended by trusted brands and cancer patients The C List is your one-stop beauty shop covering everything from the essentials like deodorant to the feel good fake tan we’ve got it ‘C’overed.

And we don’t just stop at the list though guys. No siree. Lisa is passionate about showing you how to actually use these products and how to get the most out of your skin. And Helen is equally passionate about supporting you through your cancer treatment and all the craziness it brings to your life. There will also be other cancer thriver journeys and expert blogs giving you support through cancer treatment from menopause advice to dental tips and everything in between.”
