QVC Alert - A Today's Special Value for Beauty

If you are a QVC watcher, then you will be familiar with Dr. Denese and her anti-aging skin care products.

While I have not used them or really know much about Dr. Denese and her line, the Today's Special Value looks like a great deal.

Here is what they say:

The art of beauty meets the science of skin care in these breakthrough anti-aging cosmeceuticals by Dr. Adrienne Denese. Each product in this six-piece regimen is designed to create a more youthful appearance by addressing some of the most common challenges of aging skin.

The Hydrating Cleanser helps moisturize and refresh as it cleans. The Firming Facial Pads exfoliate your skin, leaving it smoother and more radiant looking. The appearance of deep, defining lines is softened by the Wrinkle Rest Expression Line Peptide Concentrate. The Hydroshield Ultra Moisturizing Face Serum and Hydroshield Body Serum rejuvenate your skin, leaving it soft and hydrated. Baggage Lost Puff Reducing Eye Gel helps tighten and firm the appearance of skin around your eyes.

In case you haven't heard, dark brownish - berryish colors are really in for the nails this season. So when I took to my bi-monthly pedicure today, I wanted to find the closest color to Chanel's famed (discontinued) color Vamp.

The shade is more then just a dark brown. It is so dark and berry - almost black. And it is richly beautiful.

I think I was the first one in the salon to have used the color, as my pedicurist called out to everyone that this was the color they have all been looking for. In mere seconds, a dozen or so lovely ladies gathered around my feet to oooh and aaah. Two requests for this shade were immediately made.

By the way, I liked it so much - I bought the bottle.

And if you were wondering - while this shade is great for nails, it is NOT in season for the lips. Keep lips in the nude to berry range, and they will blend with the nails just fine.


How Did I Mix this Up?

Do these two products look similar?













Well, they do look sort of similar. They are both white tubes with black caps, and mostly black print . But why do you suppose I could have been so un-familiar with these products as I put the lip balm around my eyes and mouth and then the Hope in a Tube onto my lips - and then it finally hit me.  "I think I did something wrong.".

Did the scent of the lip balm and the greasy shiny feel of it not give it away? Am I so into a routine that I don't care or actually bother to look at the products I am applying? Or am I completely and utterly, over-whelmingly exhausted???

We should all have these problems - right?  I'm tired!!!
