She would get negative commentary no matter what she did. If she did not get any procedures or injections and looked more her age, people would use that as a reason to dismiss the products she sells. So she should just do what she wants and not worry about us.

Joan Rivers did the same.  Sold a beauty product and it was common knowledge she had multiple surgeries.

It seems like Dr. Denese used to be on QVC selling her products all the time, but in the past months or so she hasn't been there as much. I wonder if they are not selling as much?

I can not think of anyone who sells skin care who has not had work done.  No one is going to sell skincare if they have skin issues....  It is part of the facade ....part of the business. Some of them go too far...like Dr. Brandt to name  only one....

Speaking of going too far. How crude and repulsive, but not surprising...you know that Dr Brandt passed away - so much for rest in peace!

Intelligence and self esteem is not equally deployed amongst us!

It makes me ask the question - how often do we see , Dr. Lancer  or Dr. Perricone promoting their products....might be a reason for that.  Peter Thomas Roth covers his face with a beard.  I suppose it's smart to try and look your best when promoting skin care - otherwise, it was would like an obese  person guest touting a line of diet food.

I tried a number of her products years ago.  Unfortunately, they did not work for me.

I had been using many of her products for years but now I've moved on to other brands.

 

I didn't care for her eye cream.  No matter where I placed it under my eyes it seemed to migrate and made my eyes burn and water terribly.    I never had that problem with any other brand of eye cream.

 

The one line I could not use at all was Dr. Perricone.   His skin care products were far too strong for my type of skin.
