HBA Global Expo AKA Diva in Wonderland

I don’t know how it is exactly, that until Wednesday, I have never had  reason to attend the Jacob Javitts Convention Center before, but I relish new experiences, even on 100 degree days, so off I went.  Remarkably, this behemoth that spans nearly 6 city blocks was as cold as a meat locker…trust me, I wasn’t complaining.

What was going on was an International fair of new products, technologies, packaging, formulation, speakers and panels.

2012 HBA Global Expo Jacob K. Javitts Convention Center
NYC
Quite
possibly, The Fountain of Youth

This is where I met:

Jeanne M. O’Connell, MD. of 3 Sisters Restorasis. This completely natural self-sterilizing lip complex repairs, “aged, neglected, abused and sun damaged skin”.  I saw before and after photos at the 28 day mark of mature women that reminded me of the movie “Cocoon“. The photos were also taken at the cellular level. The improvement was nothing short of extraordinary.

Needless to say, “I’m in”. The next day when I went to work, after one application of their Rehydrating Complex Activator followed by the Self-Sterilizing Lipid Rehydrating  Complex, co-workers and clients were demanding to know why I looked so refreshed.

I will be interviewing Dr. O’Connell in upcoming weeks and will find out how we can all get our hands on “her secret sauce”.  Dr. O’Connell, who is 54, has been using only Restorasis for 3 years. (They do, however, recommend using all your usual cleansers, toners and moisturizers). I couldn’t take my eyes off her glowing, flawless skin, and she was not wearing a stitch of makeup.

Stay tuned Girls…you don’t think I would hold out on you do you?
