Collagen Mask...ACTIVATE!!!!

Several of the masks on Pure Spa Direct, especially the Pure Native Collagen Masks, call for a 'Activator.'  But why?  Why do certain masks only need water, while other require an activator?  The good news is that I have the answers for you!


Standard masks require either steam to moisten and activate, or water to mix into the powder.  The Phyto Collagen Fiber Mask Activator by Dr. Jeff is similar in that it moistens a dry product, but that is where the similarities end.


By using the product, your client will not only experience the benefits of the mask you are using, but also the hydrating, nourishing, and toning qualities of the components in the activator.


The Mask Activator is filled with ingredients that would make the any regular mask envious, including:




  1. Sodium PCA - A naturally occurring humectant and water-binding agent.
  2. Panthenol - A form of Vitamin B that promotes skin hydration and healing.
  3. Aloe Vera - A hydrating agent that is also anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and an antioxidant.
  4. Algae - A hydrating and antioxidant agent.
  5. Ginkgo Biloba - A potent anti-oxidant that helps improve circulation.
  6. Allatonin - An anti-irritant.
  7. Licorice Extract - An anti-inflammatory.
  8. Rose Hip - Lubricating oil that prevents water loss and has antioxidant properties.
  9. Green Tea - An anti-imflammatory and antioxidant agent that prevents the breakdown of collagen and reduces UV damage to skin.
An added benefit of this product is that you can use it with any dry mask!  Stop using plain, old boring water today and introduce your clients to the Phyto Collagen Fiber Mask Activator by Dr. Jeff.  Your clients should experience greater results, therefore encouraging repeat visits and greater profits.

VROOOM VROOOOM...Babyliss PRO's NEW Volare Dryers: THE PROFESSIONAL LUXURY DRYER WITH A FERRARI-DESIGNED ENGINE

Yes, you read that correctly! Babyliss PRO (a world-wide leader in the beauty industry) has (oddly enough) paired up with Ferrari (yes...THAT Ferrari!) to design the high-performance, luxury hair dryers in the Volare collection.


According to www.babylissus.com, these dryers feature a "Ferrari-designed V12 engine," an ultra-efficient, high-speed, turbo-powered engine designed for maximum airflow, minimum weight, and low vibration, all of which delivers faster drying for the salon professional with a "need for speed!"


Ferrari-Designed V12 Engine: Designed for Performance & Longevity

  • V12 Engine: Offers smooth run and high torque for superior performance
  • World's 1st Ball-bearing blow dryer engine: Significantly reduce friction and vibration for a smoother, high-performance operation
  • Extended Engine Brushes: Provides up to 300% longer engine life than that of typical dryer motors
  • Ferrari Engine: Produces more torque and less disruption of air to produce greater air pressure and stronger airflow
  • Precision Insert-Molded Construction: Improves rotor stability and, in combination with the ball-bearing design, results in a higher-performance engine
  • Turbo Power: Increases air pressure up to 15% for faster drying
The Babyliss PRO Volare is available in 2 sizes, and each size is available in 2 colors....Black, and Ferrari Red, of course! 

This full-size dryer delivers intense air pressure and includes a turbo button for an instant burst of extra-powerful air for high-speed drying. Two concentrator nozzles in different widths come standard with the Volare V1, and it features a nano titanium-infused grille for superior heat and a tri-port ionic generator to maximize hair's shine.
  • Ferrari-designed V12 engine
  • Turbo-boost button
  • Tri-Port ionic generator
  • Nano Titanium technology
  • 6 heat/speed controls
  • 2 ultra-thin accessory nozzles
  • Made in Italy
  • 2000 watts
  • Limited 4-year warranty

Volare V2: Mid-Size Dryer
The Volare V2 is an ultra-efficient mid-size dryer that delivers the same superior air pressure as the V1. The V2 includes a turbo button for an instant burst of extra-powerful air for high-speed drying. Two concentrator nozzles in different widths come standard with the Volare V2, and it features a nano titanium-infused grille for superior heat and a tri-port ionic generator to maximize hair's shine.
  • Ferrari-designed V12 engine
  • Turbo-boost button
  • Tri-Port ionic generator
  • Nano Titanium technology
  • 6 heat/speed controls
  • 2 ultra-thin accessory nozzles
  • Made in Italy
  • 2000 watts
  • Limited 4-year warranty


I have to admit, at first glance, I thought..."C'mon now, are you serious?" However, after some thought, I am totally intrigued! Plus, if it dries hair faster, with less effort, a $200 FERRARI engine is definitely worth it - especially for busy salons drying head of hair after head of hair, all day long. Maybe it is my fascination with cars and driving fast, but I think the collaboration between Babyliss PRO and Ferrari is cool as heck! What do you think? Cool, or a bit much?

Classic Barbershop Vibe with Pure Spa Direct

Even though we are in a time where everyone is all about the next big thing: what is new and shiny or fast,  I prefer to take it back to the classic times... when I go to the barbershop that is. The times when barbers used to shave you with the old fashioned razors, not the new buzzers.  Pure Spa Direct has those old fashioned razors as well as the Barber Strops.  Something about the vibe in a classic barbershop gives a trusting feeling that when your there you don't have to worry about your hair, because by the time they finish, you will be satisfied.  For all those barbershops that have that classic feel to them, visit Pure Spa Direct  -we have the items you'll need to keep the old times coming.

Cell Phone / iPad Lockers...

Pure Spa's Cell Phone lockers are
great for cell phones, iPads, and more!
Sometimes it is the attention to your clients' needs and concerns that can set your spa/salon/fitness facility, etc. apart from your competition.  I know that I am always worried about my iPhone and my iPad getting lost or stolen every time I leave the house with them... but I do take them with me all the time.  I don't want to ever leave them in my car, nor do I want to leave them laying around when I am not paying attention to them.  So what to do when I am at the spa, salon, etc.?  If every place i went only had lockers, I'd be a lot less stressed!

From a salon/spa's perspective, lockers can be costly and big space hogs - which is a serious issue for small to mid-sized facilities.  There is a solution!  Cell Phone Lockers!  Pure Spa Direct just added a nice selection of them... as small as 24"Wide x 31"High x 9.25" deep for a 15 mini locker unit!  They are available with key locks AND re-settable combination locks and each style comes is available in four colors: Aluminum, Bronze, Gold and Sandstone.

Let your clients know you care about them and add Cell Phone / iPad Lockers to your facility today!!!  They are also great for wallets, cameras, keys and other small valuables!!!

So Simple, So Plush - Convert Half Round Bolsters Into Pedicure Bowl Footrests!

Of all the products that we sell, I would have to say that the Copper Pedicure Bowls are one of the most popular and beloved of products due to its luxurious, aesthetically-pleasing and extremely hygienic features.  Unlike its resin counterparts, however, the Copper Pedicure Bowl does not have a footrest designed for it.

Recently, I went to a lovely spa that happened to be using the Copper Pedicure Bowls that we sell.  After my soak was completed, to my surprise, the nail technician brought over a Jumbo Half Round Bolster and rested it across the pedicure bowl.  So simple, yet absolutely brilliant!

The Bolster allowed me to not only rest my feet for the polish application, but also my legs for the foot and leg massage.  Since the bolster is covered in vinyl, it is easily cleaned and water-resistant.  Most importantly, it was not just comfy, it was plush.

If you are in the market for a pedicure bowl, foot soak, or just an update for your current copper or stainless steel bowls, Click HERE to see our Copper and Stainless Steel Options.  Also, Click HERE to check out the Earthlite Jumbo Half Round Bolster.  Not only does it act as a great leg and footrest, but you can also choose from a lovely selection of 16 beautiful colors to match your decor!

Add Cooling Ice Pedicures to Your Menu and Cool Off Your Clients!

If you ask me, 100 degrees
is HOT HOT HOT!
I don't know where you are reading this blog from, but here in NY, summer has hit us HARD! With temperatures soaring to over 100 degrees, everything here is sticky and hot. Personally, I hate socks with a passion, so sandals and flip flops are my go-to footwear for the summer (ok, more like any time it is not snowing out, but that is a whole other blog...). With these temperatures, though, my toes, soles, and heels are burning, hot, and achy in my flip flops. All I want to do is to crawl into a refrigerated room and take a nap....


Since that is (unfortunately) not an option, I think a better idea is a Cooling ICE Pedicure! Pure Spa Direct offers this amazing Ikonna Pedicure Ice Cooling Gel with Peppermint in MEGA 5 Gallon Buckets! Incorporating this gel into your summer pedicures will be sure to wake your clients up, refresh their tired and aching feet, and give their senses quite a lift....even when they are feeling wilted in 100+ degree weather! This gel scrub (which, by the way, is only about $0.07 / treatment - WOW!) hydrates, relaxes, and soothes, all while acting as an astringent and softening tough skin!


Pair the Ice Cooling Gel with La Palm's Ice Mineral Masque, and you have a summer WINNER on your hands! To continue your "Cool" Pedicure, substitute Cold Eucalyptus towels for your regular steamed towels. Finish the pedicure with an invigorating massage with Aromaland's Bay Laurel & Mint Foot & Leg Massage lotionand you may just have to peel your clients out of your chair! For an even sweeter treat, offer "Happy Hour" pedicures....served with a cool cucumber mint iced spa water, or even a Mojito!

Cooling, Soothing Facial Mask: Dr. Temt Cucumber Gelform Mask

100,000 Clients Say This FACE LIFT Works! My Favorite Find at IECSC 2012 Las Vegas!

Offer Your Clients
Something New & Exciting!
I was excited to talk to the manufacturing rep. of the Intelligent Facial System at IECSC Las Vegas last week.  This product has always intrigued me, but I admit I have never had a chance to use it.  The rep told me this unit receives more positive feedback for facial rejuvenation results than any of the other products he reps.  He told me spas and salons have great success selling treatment packages to age conscious clients, as the treatments have visible, cumulative effects!


Results of Follow-Up Survey of 100,000 Users :
After 1 Treatment, skins looks smoother and more youthful.
After 3 Treatments, skin becomes exquisite, white and shiny.
After 7 Treatments, facial fine lines and dark spots start to decrease; pouches and dark circles begin to disappear.
After 28 Treatments, faces appeared 1-2 years younger.


This product can deliver NON-INVASIVE results at a fraction of the cost of lasers.

How it Works:

The Intelligent Facial Rejuvenator System emits computer controlled energy to help cellular regeneration by promoting activity of the enzymes in the skin. Based on the skin conditions, the powerful computer processor formulates an appropriate energy treatment that is transmitted to the 32 gold-plated inductive points on the RF facial mask to rehabilitate skin intelligently. Each user will automatically experience a different treatment based on their individual skin conditions.

I am ordering a unit to demo!  More feedback later!!

Summertime and Playing it safe! Read on For Sun Safe Tips and Sun Protections

Although we all know that we are supposed to protect our skin year round from sun damage, summer is a crucial time to pay more attention to keeping your skin safe. People generally spend way more time in the sun during the summer months than any other season. So to break it down for you, this is how it goes. UV rays (meaning UVB and UVA) can lead to premature aging, uneven pigmentation. age spots/skin blemishes, weakened immune system, and skin cancer. I don't know about you, but that is definitely enough for me to start thinking smarter about protecting my skin! UVB rays are the culprits for the sunburn you get and UVB rays are responsible for the long term damaging effects. So you want to use a sunblock that blocks BOTH kinds of rays.

Some safe sun tips:
  • Try to avoid or limit your time in the sun between 10am and 4pm, as that is when the sun rays are at their strongest!
  • Obviously, use sunblock every time your outdoors..even when its cloudy! About 80% of rays hit earth on cloudy days!
  • You also should choose an SPF of 15 or higher. 30 or higher is even better! SPF 15 blocks 92% of harmful rays, as SPF 30 blocks 96%
  • Apply your sunblock around 20 minutes before sun exposure, as that is how long it takes to process.
  • AVOID TANNING BEDS!!
  • Also, wearing wide brimmed hats, sunglasses, and covering up are great ways to protect yourself.
  • And please, please do not forget to REAPPLY!! Even water resistant types only protect you for 40 minutes during exposure to water. So reapply after swimming, sweating, and toweling off to ensure your still protected.
Check out some of these great suggestions for sun protection:

Prepare and Protect with the Cirépil Pre-Depilatory Oil

Recently, I decided to take the plunge and have my upper and lower legs completely waxed.  On a scale of 1-10, I would have to say the pain was along the lines of 'I would rather have a Bikini Wax every week rather than do this ever again.'  Within a week, I developed a serious case of ingrown hairs and now, between the bumps and subsequent ingrown removal, my legs are still recovering.

My negative waxing experience could have been prevented if the correct pre and post depilatory products had been used.  The majority of my experiences have involved some baby powder, then straight to the wax.  While powder can work in certain hot and humid environments, it is essential to use Pre-Depilatory Oil, especially the Cirépil Pre-Depilatory Oil / 8.8 oz.

Cirépil Pre-Depilatory Oil / 8.8 oz. is a Jasmine-based oil that both conditions and protects the skin during depilatory services.  It acts as a barrier between the skin and the wax so that only the hair is being pulled, rather than the skin.

Usage:
  • Use sparingly on very dry areas of the skin or cold skin prior to waxing.
  • Use after waxing procedures as desired.
  • Can be used in massage therapy due to its light texture.
  • Caution is recommended: over-application will cause the wax not to adhere to the hair.
What it all boils down to is making your client's experience a pleasant one and ensuring that they are experiencing the absolute best service that you can provide.  Its always important to remember that not only do happy clients come back, but they also bring friends!

Create your own Spa Treatments with Spa Pantry!

A little experimentation will always help in the Spa industry.  Mixing and matching certain butters, creams and oils will be the craze at your spa...if you get it right.  For instance, something as basic as mixing Spa Pantry's Whipped Cocoa butter and Body Concepts Aloe Vera will give you a creation that you can use as part of your services!
By mixing these two items you get a great moisturizer with so many benefits.   

Aloe Vera: 
  • contains antioxidants vitamins A, C and E which calms the skin from irritation an inflammation
  • helps with dermatitis or psoriasis
  • it helps with wound healing 
Mixed with the cocoa butter, you will have a fast-absorbing mixture that retains body moisture and softens the skin.  The reason for this is that cocoa butter melts at body temperature, so the moment of application is the moment the skin will absorb the product.  Cocoa butter leaves a protective barrier that will help protect the skin from the harm of everyday life.   

  You can even use this product as part of your massage services.  Research has indicated that massaging the skin with cocoa butter can help boost the immune system and relieve stress.  I wouldn't mind getting a massage with this lotion.  Along with all of the topical benefits of mixing these to items together is the benefit of using it for aromatherapy, the sweet smelling aroma will definitely add to the massage experience.
   Be bold and experiment,  Cocoa Butter and Aloe Vera are just two items you can experiment with.  Visit Pure Spa Direct to see what other items we have for you to use for your secret recipe.

Spa / Salon Industry Events...

Just got back from the IECSC Trade Show in Las Vegas (saw some great new products that Pure Spa Direct will be offering soon!) and was thinking it would be good to re-post a link to Pure Spa's Industry Events page -- a calendar of events that we update monthly.

Trade Shows are a great place to see new things, meet new people and they are often in super fun locations, like Las Vegas! BTW, one of the most fun things ever... $5 Black Jack at the outdoor tables next to Harrah's... drinks, a misting system and a rockin' 80's band on the stage right there -- AMAZING FUN!

Want to know a great, healthy way to get soft skin, all while being friendly to the environment?

Eco-fin Paraffin Alternative is the answer! Eco-fin is a natural eco-friendly alternative to popular paraffin treatments. It is made with 100% natural plant-based emollients and pure essential oils. It contains no petroleum, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Eco-friendly, people-friendly, and biodegradable. Eco-fin is a healthy and nourishing treatment that leaves your skin soft without harming the environment. It is a rich blend of palm, soy, jojoba, organic oils, shea butter, vitamin E and essential oils. Another great perk to this product: preparing and clean up are super easy!

Did I also mention they smell great?! Your client will love choosing from these amazing scents:

Happy: Raspberry-Grapefruit Blend
Muse: Cinnamon-Ginger Blend
Escape: Peppermint Essence
Shangri-La: Jasmine-Sandlewood Blend 
Pleasure: Chocolate Essence
Dream: Vanilla Essence
Reverie: Lavender-Vanilla Blend
Retreat: Coconut-Pineapple Blend
Be Well: Green Tea-Aloe Blend
Purity: Unscented


Instructions for an Eco-fin treatment:

  • Drop the selected Eco-Fin Cube into the prepared Eco-Sleeve. 
  • Roll the sleeve over itself into a tidy roll. 
  • *Note: For convenience, you can order extra Eco-Sleeves for Mitts and Eco-Sleeves for Booties and prepare several rolls ahead of time. They can be kept warm in your hot towel cabi, or you can warm the liner only in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds before inserting it into the sleeve. Use caution when using microwaves as they vary and may require less heating time. Overheating can melt the plastic liners.
  • If you don’t have a warmed sleeve already prepared, warm the liner only in the microwave for 30 seconds before inserting the Eco-Fin cube into the sleeve. 
  • Unroll the Eco-Sleeve and slide it onto guest’s hand or foot. Help disperse the rich emulsion evenly by massaging over the hands or feet.
  • Place warm herbal or electric mitts/booties onto the hands or feet.
  • Remove mitts/booties and liners after 10 to 15 minutes and massage remaining emulsion into hands and forearms or feet and legs. Discard used liners and reuse sleeves/herbal mitts & booties.


Also, this is a great, low cost add-on for any spa/salon treatments you offer! Based on a hand treatment using 1 cube per hand, it's less then $1.60 per treatment!

Just Add Milk - Full Cream Powder Boosts Skin Treatments


Egyptian Bath Recipe:
1/2 to 1 cup of milk powder,
 mix with 2 tablespoons of wild honey.

Cleopatra is said to have bathed in milk to enhance her beauty. Milk is a natural skin softener and moisturizer. Used alone or with honey, it leaves skin soft and silky. You can use milk as a make up remover, a cleanser, a scrub, or as a mask when mixed with a base.

Spa Pantry's natural Milk powder is renowned for it's richness in protein, vitamins (A, C, B1, B6, B12 & E) and minerals contains caprylic acid. It is believed that the AHAs found in milk have softening properties.


Spa Usage:Mixing ratio for most formulas is ¼ to ½ teaspoon of milk powder to 2 tablespoons of base for a body or facial treatment.

  • 1/2 to 1 cup of milk powder for a hydrotherapy treatment (mix with 2 tablespoons of honey).
  • All of the milk powders can be blended into butters, masks, scrubs, and cleansers
  • Milk powder does not mix well with carrier oils.

Green Comment:
This supplier has great respect for the environment. Having a no-chemical policy in place, this family owned farm maintains beautiful, healthy land that furnishes hay for a nearby organic dairy farm.


Powdered Milk also available in
Buttermilk & Goat's Milk

NICE! Polished Amethyst Tealight Holder...

I was in the Pure Spa Direct shipping department the other day and something super cool caught my eye... and no, it was not Steve our Shipping Manager.  It was a client's order being packed for Polished Amethyst Tealight Holders.  Seriously, they are awesome.  Beautiful to look at, oddly nice to hold.


Amethyst, long prized in jewelry for its beautiful, violet coloring and within the spiritual community for its energetic qualities, is a beautiful crystal showing up in deposits where its many facets glisten with a deep, resonating purple. Now, such a deposit has been polished smooth and shaped to create a uniquely beautiful candle holder.

With an opening measuring approximately 1 1/2" in diameter, it can easily contain a small pillar candle or a tealight candle, which would leave the many facets of the amethyst crystal surrounding it glowing brightly with the warm light of the candle you place within it. Use it to decorate your treatment rooms, home (or place upon your altar to aid in candle magic and crystal healing, where it can help empower your psychic abilities and otherwise aid rituals and healing of the mind).

Each candle holder is shaped from a natural formation of amethyst, resulting in each candle holder possessing a unique size and shape.

I loved them so much that I ordered some for myself!

Helichrysum Essential Oil - The Oil of Immortality

One of the biggest benefits of working at Pure Spa Direct is receiving product feedback from our clients.  A client recently introduced me to Helichrysum Pure Essential Oil, so I wanted to pass the information on to our lovely readers.

Now that we are in the summer season, there will be a surge of clients who will be seeking sunburn and/or skin healing treatments. Helichrysum Essential Oil is a necessary addition to your services due to its many beneficial properties, including:



  • Anti-Microbial - Prevents microbial infections.
  • Anti-Inflammatory - Reduces inflammation. 
  • Fungicidal - Prevents fungicidal infections.
  • Anti-Haematoma - Prevents and clears blood clots.
  • Emollient - Promotes skin hydration.
  • Cytophylactic - Production of new cells.
  • Cicatrisant - Promotes skin healing and scar reduction.
Helichrysum can be used for all of your clients, including those who experience:
  • Sunburns
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Redness
  • Acne
  • Skin trauma
  • Scaring
The best way to incorporate Helichrysum essential oil is to mix it with apricot seed or grape seed carrier oils and apply to the skin during a facial massage.  The natural floral scent of the oil can stand alone and also blends very well with Lavender, Neroli and Ylang-ylang essential oils.

Trending Now for Estheticians: Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber

One of the most important components of a facial is a deep clean. Clients who come to your spa for regular facials crave a deeper cleaning of their pores and skin than they can achieve at home. What is an effective way of giving your clients what they want? Using an Ultrasonic skin scrubber, that's how!


Every day, new skin cells are formed at the bottom layer of the epidermis to replace the skin cells we shed from the top layer. The upper layers of the epidermis are often clogged with dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, causing the skin to lose radiance and appear dull. Ultrasonic skin scrubbers (often referred to as "skin scrubbers" or "skin spatulas") utilize ultrasound waves to speed up the natural exfoliation process, loosening and removing this oil, dirt, and other cellular debris from the pores on the surface of the skin. This is a deep exfoliation process which often results in glowing, more youthful-looking skin. 


Following exfoliation, switch your skin scrubber to the Sonophoresis mode for maximum penetration of your ampoules, toner and moisturizers of choice!


Benefits of Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber:

  • Improves appearance of Acne
  • Removes Blackheads
  • Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Improves Collagen and Elastin production for Firming and Tightening
  • Allows for Deeper Penetration of Skin Care Products

Skin scrubbers are safe for a wide variety of skin types, including skin with:

  • Sensitive Skin
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Aging Skin
