Fighting Fine Lines and Wrinkles with SkinCare by Alana

Several weeks ago, I was contacted by Alana Mitchell, a business owner, mom of two (one with autism), blogger, wife and big fan of beauty products. Alana asked if I was interested in reviewing some of her skin care products.* She also told me that she started SkinCare by Alana ten years ago in order to earn extra money to cover the expenses involved in raising a son with autism.

Alana now has two online stores, skincarebyalana.com and alanamitchell.com, as well as a blog, skincarebyalana.com/blog.

As I’m getting older, I’m always looking for products that help my skin look better. I told Alana that I have fine lines, especially around my eyes and lips and asked her what she suggested I try. I was sent the Alana Mitchell Quick Comeback Masque as well as the The Alana Mitchell Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum.


The Alana Mitchell Quick Comeback Masque is unique in that you activate it when you are ready to use it. There is a cotton pillow that transforms into a gel masque. The masque promises to plump, tighten and firm lines and wrinkles. I used the masque after a long flight when my skin was in need of some extra TLC, and it did not disappoint. My face looked refreshed, smoother and lines and wrinkles were less noticeable. The masque comes in a single use container, and I think it’s a great product to use when you want to get your skin ready for a special occasion, or when it needs a special boost, such as after a stressful day or a long flight.

The second product I was sent is the Alana Mitchell Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum. It promises to instantly plump fine lines and wrinkles with 20% Hyaluronic Acid. The first thing I noticed is the pleasant, light citrus smell. I used the serum morning and evening underneath a moisturizer. After using the serum for several weeks, my skin looks smoother and plumper, and I’m always looking forward to putting the pleasant smelling serum on my face. Before I was sent this serum to try, I had been using another serum for a couple of years, and I was actually quite happy with it. But I can honestly say that I like Alana’s serum better, and I think it delivers better results. Once I finish up my old serum, which I had stockpiled and have several bottles of, I will definitely return to the Alana Mitchell Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum.

I really like both products, and they help my skin look better.

  1. Both products sound great. I think the "miracle" mask could be quite useful at times...

    1. Yes, I have been much more interested in skin care in the last year as changes in my skin are becoming visible... The serum works really well for me. I like that I can use it with my moisturizer and day cream with SPF. And the mask is a nice special treat. It's a bit too expensive to use very often...

    1. Thanks, Jodie! I was really surprised by the serum as I had pretty much concluded that the serum I was using was the best for my skin... But that's clearly not the case.

  7. I used, and still use for a few weeks, Clinique! But I got the feeling that I needed something stronger for my skin now. So I am now going to try Estee Lauder.

  8. I've not had good experiences with the serums I've tried so it's wonderful that this brand works for you so much that you're going to repurchase it :) It sounds like a nice purchase to help support a fellow mum too :)

    Hope you are having a great week and have a wonderful weekend ahead of you :)

  9. I love Alana's products! I received a pumpkin scented face wash from her last year and I've ran out and I want to refill it! I think it came in other scents, too. It is so important to stay on top of our skin!!

  10. Kudos to Alana, she sounds like an awesome woman and a beautiful Mom. I would love to try one of her masks, these lines on my face have become craters while I wasn't looking ;-)
