This was my first ISSE show and it was bigger than I expected. I got a chance to meet new people and visit with some that I’ve already met. It’s interesting to see what each company is offering and learn more about their products. Here are some quick snapshots from the show.
Jessica Cosmetics’ Valerie Celia showed me Jessica’s complete Zen Spa line as well as the Jessana Anti-Aging hand care products.
