Illuminate Your Manicures with CND Illuminating Masque

I don't know about you, but with the colder months coming around, my hands get soooo dry and irritated! Its definately a time to take special notice and care, and incorporate new treatments to your manicures. Plus, with the colder weather's long sleeves and sweaters, your hands are almost... on display! For clients looking for refined and deeply moisturized skin with a beautiful glow, the CND Almond Illuminating Masque is a great item to add to manicures to elevate the experience and leave your clients with glowing, conditioned hands. The sweet almond oil in this masque will soothe dry and irritated skin, while jojoba seed oil will moisturize and condition. The CND Almond Illuminating Masque is definately something I would love as part of my manicure!


  • Sweet Almond Oil: Softens and conditions, helps balance water loss and absorption. Soothes dry, irritated skin. 
  • Jojoba seed Oil: Deeply penetrating natural oil for excellent moisturizing and conditioning. Jojoba oil acts like a carrier to increase penetration of other ingredients.
  • Vitamin E: Antioxidant known to neutralize free radicals associated with premature aging of the skin; softens and moisturizes.
  • Mineral Oil: Non-irritating, effective moisturizer that promotes hydration during treatment.

  • Apply a thin layer of the masque to the top of both hands and fingers. Wrap with warm towels or heated manicure mitts.
  • After 3-5 minutes, remove towels/mitts and remove masque with clean water and a moist, soft sponge.
  • Dry with a towel.
Suggested Uses:
  • Apply to hands with a disinfected facial applicator brush for a more refined service.
  • As an alternative, use a professional lotion heater to gently warm masque and then drizzle on hands.

What Provides 900% Profit? Callus Removal Services!

As a nail technician, one of the most essential and most profitable add-on services you can offer to your clients is Callus Removal.  Used to make the rough, hard skin on the feet softer and easier to remove, just a small amount of product goes a long way to ensuring client satisfaction and repeat business.

No matter whether it is sandal or sock season, your clients absolutely HATE the calluses and rough edges on their feet.  The feeling goes beyond aesthetic reasons, as dry cracked do not feel comfortable scratching under sheets or in shoes.  By offering this service to your clients, you are not only making a significant profit, but you are also helping your clients feel better.

So how does the Callus Remover work?  The gels are formulated with ingredients such as salicylic acid, lactic acid, and alpha-hydroxy acids that, when left on the skin for 3-5 minutes, soften the callused and rough areas enough that the skin can be flaked off with a foot file.  The gel accomplishes in a very small amount of time what all the pumice scrubbing and foot file sanding could probably never accomplish.

The tools for a successful service are Callus Remover or Eliminatorgloves, paraffin bags, and a pedicure rasp.  After applying a thin layer of gel to only the callused areas, put the client's foot a paraffin bag and have them put their foot back into the foot soak.  The combination of the heat and the pressure from the water will help the gel penetrate more thoroughly.  After a maximum of 7 minutes, remove the foot from the paraffin bag and use the rasp to flake off the dead skin. Its that simple!

Typically, salons charge between $5 - $10 for this add on service.  With a treatment cost that can be as low as $1, which includes all of the recommended supplies, you can make a whopping 400% to 900% Profit per service! Your client will experience immediate gratification in the form of petal-soft feet and you can experience a significant boost to your bottom line!

Preventative Lice Measures

There is a topic that no matter what salon you go to hairstylists will cringe when talked about, LICE!!  The itching, the scratching and the overall irritation caused by these little bugs can be a nuisance  Especially for parents who have children constantly around other children in school or activities, it is something they are mindful of.  There are chemicals offered to get rid of them if children contract them, but why not offer your clients something to prevent that from happening to their children.  Fairy Tales is a line offered by Pure Spa Direct that was started with the intention of preventing lice.  Their Rosemary Repel line, which includes a shampoo, conditioner, a shield spray and styling gel, is infused with organic herbs of rosemary, citronella, lavender, and tea tree oil, all fragrances which have been shown to help repel lice.

So these great selling retail products will not have a nasty smell that will drive your clients away holding their noses. With children in mind they have a mixture of vitamins and minerals that not only protects but enriches hair and scalps.  Along with being paraben and sulfate free these products contain:
  • Vitamins A, B and E                    
  • aloe 
  • jojoba 
  • rose hips
  • sage
  • cherry bark
  • chamomile
For those who didn't use preventive care, Fairy Tales also has a product called FAIRY TALES Lice Good-Bye.  It is a non toxic mousse that eliminates Lice and their eggs.  It has been clinically proven to dissolve the "glue” lice use to attach eggs onto hair follicles, to help parents remove lice and nits(eggs) from the hair more efficiently.  Check out Pure Spa Direct to see the whole Fairy Tales line and other great retail lines we offer for your salon and spa.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage Made me a LOSER (on the scale)!

While lymphatic massage does not
 produce permanent weight loss
 on its own,  it may aid in removing excess
body weight.
I once met a petite little lady around the age of 40 that attributed her impeccable size 2 figure to lymphatic drainage massages.  She said that for years she was a stubborn size 10 before she began seeing a Hungarian massage therapist in a Scottsdale spa for "European style" lymphatic massages two times a week. She claimed that this technique worked wonders for her body and helped jump start the release of toxins and "stuck" excess fluid from her body. Though I was fascinated by her testimonial, I found it highly unlikely that anyone could lose 4 dress sizes from being massaged! Yet, the story never left my mind after all these years.  So after putting on 6 pounds this summer, and not having any success with my personal training sessions, I decided to try a few Lymphatic Drainage massage appointments.  After all, this did seem to be easier than squats.

I booked an appointment with a nearby spa where only two of the masseuses are trained in this teqnique.  I was already feeling excited when I learned these two therapists are booked for weeks performing Lymphatic Drainage Massages - this could only mean they work right? My therapist was from China and talked to me a lot about Chinese medicine and theory behind the benefits of this technique.  Though she did not assure me I was going to be a size 2, she felt confident that I would see positive benefits from a 90 minute treatment.

About 24 hours after my massage I felt the best. My energy has been dramatically improved, my sleep was deeper and I lost ONE POUND!  Now I am not sure if that was just water weight, but I really don't care. My scale didn't manage to go down once in 3 months, so I feel this is a great success.  I am commited to going back once per week, for 90 minutes to see what happens.  I am also keeping my cardio workouts and a decent diet plan.

If your spa does not have any therapists specializing in Lymphatic Drainage Massage, it's time to start.  This is a FANTASTIC massage service to offer clients, and I feel the positive benefits are more vastly more noticeable than a regular Sweedish or Hot Stone Massage. offers a Lymphatic Drainage Massage DVD by Sean Riehl This beautiful 90 minute video will guide you through the anatomy of the lymphatic system, the location of nodes and drainage patterns, as well as contraindications and indications for lymphatic drainage massage. Then Sean Riehl leads you step by step through over 60 techniques covering the face and body. With a clear presentation and hundreds of computer graphics, learning Lymphatic Drainage has never been easier. Also included are techniques to perform Lymphatic Drainage on yourself, as well as an interview with Allen Mills, a prominent Lymphatic Drainage therapist.

Just Sisal While You Work!

No, I did not spell "whistle" wrong, I am writing about  Sisal!

What is  Sisal?  According to Wikipedia:
"Sisal (Agave sisalana) is an agave that yields a stiff fibre traditionally used in making twine, rope and also dartboards. The term may refer either to the plant or the fibre, depending on context. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as sisal hemp because hemp was for centuries a major source for fibre, so other fibres were sometimes named after it."
You might be asking yourself, OK Doug, what do Agave plant ropes have to do with spas/salons?  Well, it turns out that Sisal fibers are ALSO used to make a variety of exfoliation products... sponges, soap sacks, mitts, gloves, pads, brushes and more!

Sisal is used for deep exfoliation and massage of the skin, and it is frequently used dry. This type of rough exfoliation may take some getting used to, but it is a good way to slough off dead skin and reveal fresher, softer skin underneath.   Sisal is also very commonly used wet, in the shower (in a standard shower or during a Vichy Shower treatment), for slightly more gentle exfoliation.

Whether the Sisal is used wet or dry, it is best to begin with a gentle scrubbing until the skin becomes more used to the exfoliation of the sisal bristles, and then more pressure can be applied for a deeper exfoliating massage. Sisal can be used on the back as well as other rough places, such as the knees or feet, or even all over the body for a full-body exfoliating treatment. Sisal should not be used on more sensitive areas like the face.

Because the Sisal may also be able to improve circulation, some recommend always brushing in a circular motion, toward the heart. One may use a sisal brush every day, once a week, or as needed... any use can provide skin benefits!

So remember, if you offer exfoliation treatments or are looking for great retail items for home use... "Just Sisal While You Work!"

Update Your Look for Fall and Give Your Colorist a Visit!

Hair color is one of the greatest trends that women can enjoy playing around with. Fall is a great time of year to make a change to your color. I myself love making changes to my hair color, I'm a natural blonde, have gone brunette, and am playing around with the idea of...maybe...something a little more red! Changing your hair color with the seasons is definately a lot of fun.

  • Brunettes:
    • If you are looking to update your dark tresses, consider going warmer and darker. Darker colors can highlight the skin and eyes, so it is a great way to change your look with the changing seasons. Another look that continues to stay popular is a sleek, black color. 
  • Redheads:

    • Red is definately a huge trend this fall. Warm tones such as copper and auburn will balance out paler skin. For a lighter, less extreme look, try going with a strawberry blonde color.
  • Blondes:
    • A great way to update blonde hair for the fall is adding more of a beige tone. Also, adding some low lights will tone down the summer blonde color and give you a great multidimensional look. 

Whichever color change you choose, try to keep it within two shades lighter or darker than your natural color. Be sure to consult with your colorist what would work best for your skin tone and leave them to work their magic! Happy coloring!!

Want A Healthier Life, Kola Is The Answer

This type of Kola is not just good for you, it is great for you.  Gotu Kola is a plant that has many healing and calming effects, I'm surprised more don't use it.  In Ayurvedic Medicine, it is said to be one of the most important rejuvenating herbs. It can be used as a pure blood tonic and for skin health.  Fortifying the immune system, Gotu Kola both cleanses and feeds resulting in the strengthening of the adrenal glands.  Helping people who practice yoga to improve their meditation practices, this herb's calming properties make it happen.  It's said to develop the crown chakra, the energy center at the top of the head, and balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain.   If you have a medi-spa that focuses on the more natural and herbal approach to healing, this is the perfect item to purchase for your services.

The Gotu Kola Powder has chemical constituents that aids in wound healing and acts as a strong anti-inflammatory agent.  It affects various stages of tissue development:
  • helps the process of replacing skin after sores or ulcers
  • synthesis of collagen 
  • stimulation of hair and nail growth
The herb has been used successfully to help with inflammation of veins, varicose veins, leg cramps, swelling of the legs and heaviness and tingling in legs.  Use the powder we have available at Pure Spa Direct to mix in with your solutions or creams to help your clients have better results with the issues they may be having.

Stay Calm with Chamomile in Your Spa

As the time comes to transition from summer into fall, for some it can definately be a stressful time. Back to school, back to work, no more relaxing beach days, etc...things can get hectic! Its a time for some much-needed calming!

Chamomile calms the mind and eases fear, anxiety, anger, worries and tension during times of physical and emotional stress. Also, brings peace and patience and enhances overall feelings of calm and relaxation.

Chamomile is one of the longest used medicinal plants. It’s been used for centuries to calm and soothe the mind, body, and soul. Diffusing roman chamomile essential oil can combat depression, insomnia, and stress because of its calming abilities. When used in aromatherapy, it is able to relax and tone the nervous system and decrease tension and anxiety.

Both Roman and German chamomile have excellent calming properties, but Roman chamomile is more effective for irritation, impatience, and has great value in treating PMS and other menstrual and menopausal problems, while German chamomile is superbly effective on the skin, not only to soothe and calm, but to heal and for tissue regeneration. Both help soothe skin conditions like acne, eczema, rashes, wounds, dermatitis, and dry, itchy skin. Chamomile oil is excellent at treating any type of inflammation, but German chamomile contains azulene, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.  This blue crystal is not actually present in the plant, but forms in the oil and only a small quantity is needed to be effective. Roman Chamomile essential oil is very mild when used on the skin. Due to this, it is a great choice for use on sensitive or inflamed skin. The Roman chamomile essential oil has a sweet, apple-like fragrance and is very light clear blue in color, while the German chamomile oil has a sweet, straw-like fragrance, and is dark blue in color. Roman chamomile can be used in a blended massage oil, or diluted in the bath, to assist with allergies, anorexia, addiction, colic, insomnia, back pain, muscle pain, arthritis, post-natal depression and bowel disorders, whereas German chamomile can be used for asthma, measles, mumps, PMS, menopausal symptoms, as well as rheumatism.

*Both chamomiles blend well with bergamot, clary sage, lavender, geranium, jasmine, tea tree, grapefruit, rose, lemon and ylang-ylang. 

Try using Chamomile in these various ways for calmer days!

Cream of the Crop: The Best Top Coats!

A vast majority of Nail Technicians will always say that their absolute favorite Top Coat, hands down, is the Seche Vite Crystal Clear Top Coat.  We here at Pure Spa love the feedback that our clients provide and I personally have sworn by Seche Vite for years as well.  A recent experience, however, made me reconsider my unyielding devotion and maybe, just maybe, allow 2 top coats to be favorites.

Last week I tried a lovely new nail salon.  The staff was warm and gracious and they were exceptionally patient while it took me forever and a day to choose my polish colors.  I like to bring my own top and base coats and while the technician was more than happy to oblige with my Poshe Base Coat, she said that she would much rather use her 'Out the Door' Top Coat.  Seeing as I had never used that particular product before, I decided to go for it.

The final verdict?  I absolutely LOVE Out the Door Top Coat!  While this does not mean I am saying goodbye to Seche Vite, it does mean that there is a new, fantastic option depending upon your clients needs.

Out the Door Top Coat Experience:
  • Applied evenly, did not have to be globbed on.
  • Medium amount of Shine.
  • 3-5 minute drying time.  The manufacturer says the product dries in 45 seconds, however, it took several minutes for my nails to no longer be tacky.  
  • Most importantly, this product LASTS.  Despite going to a Water Park and doing a significant amount of house cleaning, I did not experience any kind of chipping until the 6th day of my manicure!  Who knows how long it could have lasted if I took it easy on my nails?
Seche Vite Top Coat Experience:
  • Needs to be applied thickly, as product itself is thick.  The more, the better!
  • Very high Shine - Nails look wet.
  • 1-2 minute dry time MAX. My nails are A-OK to dig into my purse for keys approximately 2 minutes after Seche Vite top coat application.
  • Typically, I start to experience peeling on the 3rd day.  Water and cleaning supplies have caused it to lift automatically.
Deciding which top coat to use all depends upon the needs of your client.  When you have clients that love the wet look and/or cannot sit at the nail dryer for an extended period of time, Seche Vite Top Coat is the way to go.  Clients who have some time to spare and are looking for a longer-lasting manicure can be offered Out the Door Top Coat.  Providing you client with options will help garner loyalty and help increase profits!

            PSD's Kleenex vs PSY - Gangnam Style...

            So you are thinking, OK Doug, what on earth does that title mean? I'll decipher it!

            1) I'll start with the 2nd Part (PSY - Gangnam Style)... If you have been living under a rock, like apparently I have, you somehow missed the latest viral video that has well over 144 million views... it PSY - Gangnam Style -- not sure why the world it is so catchy, but like millions of others, now I am compelled  to watch it more than once.  If you missed it, or already love it, here it is:

            2) Now, the 1st Part (PSD's Kleenex).  What is the opposite of Viral?  Anti-Viral of course!  Pure Spa Direct (get it... PSD!) has a wide variety of Anti Viral products to help keep you, your staff and your clients from catching each other's germs!  

            Some of the interesting ones for your spa/salon include:
            • Anti-Viral Kleenex - pretty cool, these three-ply tissue has moisture-activated middle layer proven to kill 99.9% of cold and flu viruses

            • The Virus Washer Air Purifier - an air purifier suppresses airborne bacteria with electrolyzed water technology

            • Citrus II Germicidal Cleaner - a Bacterialcidal, Virucidal, Tuberculocidal, Fungicidal, Disinfectant formulated to disinfect non-porous, inanimate surfaces such as walls, floors, tables, chairs, sinks and tubs.

            • Mar-V-Cide Disinfectant Germicide Fungicide Virucide - a hospital grade disinfectant cleaner. Concentrated. Formulated for effective hair salon instrument sanitation.

            • Purell Hand Sanitizer Spray Pens - on-the-go hand sanitizing power you will need packaged in a convenient spray pen. A great POP item and great for your staff to all carry in their pockets!

            Pure Spa has hundreds more too -- use the search box at to find what you need!  I'm not saying any of these will prevent more K-Pop videos from PSY, but they will help keep you, your team and your clients from catching germs!!!

            Refectocil is Flying Out The Door!

            Refectocil products are hittin' the warehouse hard this week. With so many color options it's no wonder that this is one of our most popular dyes for brows and lashes. Apparently, there's people out there who even like the violet color. I'd like to see that... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Refectocil selection HERE!

            New and Innovative Hair Tool: 8 Second Curls!

            This might be the coolest thing I've seen recently when it comes to hair styling tools. The FHI Heat Runway IQ Session Styling Rapid Hair System takes a new approach to hot rollers. It has a heating base that is never hot too the touch, which allows you to avoid accidents and injuries. The rollers are heated one at a time instead of all at once and each roller only takes 8 seconds to heat up to 284 degrees!

            The rollers are made of ceramic which evenly heats the hair, locks in style, and the ceramic technology conditions the hair with less damage than other materials. The rollers only remain hot for a designated amount of time which encourages longevity of the style but avoids excessive heat on the hair.

            All you do is pop one into the heating base and in eight seconds the light goes off and the bell dings and the roller is ready!  The roller gradually gets hotter, which gives you enough time to work with it before it gets too hot to touch.

            The cool thing about FHI Heat Runway IQ Session Styling Rapid Hair System is that the sides of the roller will turn clear when the roller is hot at 284 degrees and will return to dark grey when the roller is cool. This system takes all the guesswork out of using hot rollers! With this system you can achieve tight ringlets, luscious curls, loose waves, or even seductively straight styles with tons of body.

            Fall-Themed Foot Facials!

            It is no secret that the staff here at Pure Spa Direct is not only excited for the Fall season, but also the opportunity to help you maximize profits and client satisfaction with products befitting the upcoming Autumnal changes.

            A personal favorite product of mine that is perfect for this time of the year is the Too Cool Apple and Oatmeal Detoxifying Foot Facial by SOHO.  Whether you offer pedicures, massages, foot reflexology or other types of services, this product is the perfect add-on or basis for any treatment.

            Gentle and refreshing, this mask draws out excess sebum, oil and toxins from the skin.  In addition, it also balances the pH of the skin while replenishing vital nutrients and minerals.  Simply combine the powder and liquid to create the mixture, apply to the feet and allow the product to harden.  Removal is a breeze since the mask forms a rubber-like consistency and can just be peeled off.

            Most importantly, it will provide excellent, delicious-smelling service that stays in keeping with the current Autumnal theme!  Click HERE to see the SOHO Too Cool Apple and Oatmeal Detoxifying Foot Facial.  Lastly, check out some additional apple-themed products ripe for the picking HERE.
