    I have really enjoyed watching your videos – I don’t know how you manage to fit everything in. I have been buying products you have recommended since I began watching QVC and my skin is in far better condition than it was 10 years ago – I am now 58. Each time I watch I pick up new hints and tips even with products I already have in my rather large collection. It is obvious from watching and listening to you in the video clips that you are not just selling products – you are passionate about what you sell and only do so with products you recommend with the intention of enhancing the buyer’s ability to improve the condition of their skin and nails. I salute you!!

    Hello Alison,
    Your passion for animals and skincare is very obvious for all to see. Its great to see just how seriously you take all your responsibilities.
    I believe you put your heart and soul into all you care about.
    Keep up the great work at home and at QVC.
    Best Wishes
