IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream

In late January, IT Cosmetics invited me to attend their first QVC show with a studio audience. Sitting in the VIP section, I got a behind-the-scenes look at the crazy technical choreography it takes to produce a 2-hour live show.

At the end, the brand gifted all of the audience members with a goody bag filled with their new Confidence in a Cream moisturizer – and their Superhero Mascara (review coming soon).

Confidence in a Cream is a life changer and a skin saver. I’ve been using it every day since the QVC show and it has improved my skin tenfold. Before I swapped it into my routine, my face was a desiccated mess. It was so flaky that, in certain spots, it looked like my facial skin had dandruff. I would have to slather on a heavy moisturizer (I had been using Cetaphil Cream) just to look like my skin wasn’t peeling off.  (more…)

Dana’s Secrets for Healthy and Hydrated Skin

dana skincare routineWhen it comes to my skin care routine, I use a variety of products.  I’m attracted to what smells good, feels good and what works for me. Then again who isn’t?  After many years of experimenting, I finally have figured out a great combination for me. That bold statement was verified yesterday when I received a HUGE compliment (at least to me it was huge).

I saw my esthetician yesterday for an eyebrow clean up. I always dread laying down under that bright light where she can clearly see all of my flaws. I was getting ready to defend my pores, just like how I have to defend my flossing habits to my dentist, when she said, “You are doing a great job keeping your skin hydrated. Your face is one of the best that I have seen all day.”  “What, really?! Thanks!” was my response.
