Enliven Your Spa Menu With The French Wine Exotic Peel Off Mask!

If you are looking for something new and exciting to add to your facial menu, the Pourelle Cosmetics French Wine Exotic Peel Off Mask is a great choice! This mask instantly leaves your client's skin feeling refreshed and looking firm and bright. I decided to go ahead and see what this mask was all about, and after removing it, I immediately saw a difference. My skin looked great the next morning too!

How to use:
  • For a face treatment, mix 30 grams of powder and 90 grams of water at room temperature (20°C).
  • Mix vigorously for about 1 minute until you obtain a smooth and even paste.
  • Apply the treatment immediately in a semi-thick layer to clean skin, taking care to avoid the eye contour. (This masks dries quickly, so be sure to apply before it hardens!)
  • The mask will dry within 6 minutes.
  • Leave on for 10 minutes; the mask can then be removed easily in one movement without leaving any trace.
The French Wine Exotic Peel Off Mask contains beneficial grape tannins. Tannins are known to regulate the formation of collagen and restructure the skin, clearing the complexion and brightening the skin. Tannins contained in grape marc are involved in collagen synthesis by helping restructure the skin. In the end, the complexion looks clearer and the appearance of visible signs of ageing has diminished!

Hand-TASTIC! Great Add-On Treatment for ALL of Your Clients

Clients complaining about ashy and dry hands? Is all the lotion and Vaseline not working? 


Beautiful, well-kept and delicate hands are important. Reminding your clients that their hands tell a number of things about who they are is important! No matter how firm the face, hands can give away their true age! Treat your clients' hands to some TLC by using a hand mask to keep their paws in perfect condition.

If they think that by washing, cleansing and moisturizing their hands is all that they can do to pamper them, remind them to think again! Your client's hands are also as exposed to heat, cold and water as their face is.  A hand treatment mask will  help them pamper our hands a little more! And no need to worry about consuming too much time....applying hand treatment masks is also an easy task!

Allow Pure Spa Direct to help you nourish your clients' hands with the Exfoliating Hand Masque / 10 Pack by uQ you and they will be sure to just LOVE! This is a GREAT add-on treatment to increase your bottom line - apply it during a facial mask, pedicure mask, or at the end of a massage - the opportunities are endless, and your clients will be even happier with the results you provide them!

Increase Profits by Adding on Makeup Services

 Offering makeup application services in the spa is an easy way to increase revenue, whether through retail sales or as a add-on to other spa services. The idea is to include the makeup application in the service instead of just offering it as an option. Having a makeup artist on staff at your spa will help offer a variety of full service spa packages and give you more opportunity to increase your profits.

Another way makeup application is an important part of spa services, is for your clients who come in mid day for a facial or facial waxing service. By offering makeup services to these clients, they will leave the spa without worrying about the redness they may experience after the service.

When adding a makeup artist to your staff, you are also going to want to add a makeup line, as so you can retail the products used during the service to your clients. By adding retail products along with the make up services, you will maximize your profit potential!


As an Esthetician, your clients trust you with their skin care needs and by adding in the right cosmetics along with your facial services, you will not only build on that trust with your clients, but you will also have an added benefit to your skin care treatments.

Here at Pure Spa Direct, we have all the cosmetic supplies you would need to provide make up services in your spa, like disposable applicators, cosmetic sponges, and cosmetic brushes. We also carry a ton of stylish makeup cases to store all your supplies! =)

Pedicure Bowls - Skip The Heavy Lifting

No HEAVY Lifting Required.
Use a Pitcher to decant
Your Pedicure Spa
Post Treatment.
Pedicure bowls are wildly popular in spas. They are beautiful, mobile and a great hygienic alternative to noisy thrones or jets, and they enhance every spa d├ęcor.  Yet as fabulous as these bowls are, some pros are weighed down by the cumbersome task of emptying out the water after a pedicure service.

Recently at the IECSC show, I over heard a spa owner saying that emptying these pedicure bowls has become an injury concern for her as picking up and emptying the full bowl is unmanageable for some of her more fragile staff members. The suggestion from the pedicure bowl rep. was to decant the water from the bowl using a pitcher. Once the bowl is nearly empty it is easy to pick up and discard remaining water and proceed to disinfect.

We have a beautiful Copper Pitcher available for elegant decanting of pedicure bowls. If you are looking for something less expensive, Amazon has some that fit the bill - but are not as beautiful.

Minimize No-Shows at Your Spa or Salon

It baffles my mind that my colorist, facialist, manicurist and hairstylist are all plagued with no-
"No Show", "No Call" Clients
Are Expensive. Email
Reminders Can Help.
show / no call customers. For what these girls charge, a no show appointment could cost them hundreds of dollars in losses. I asked them what reasons clients give for not showing or calling on their appointment day? They told me most clients say they 'clean forgot' about the appointment because they made it too far in advance.  


It's a shame that clients' are not better organized, as these beauty professionals could have booked another paying customer, instead their chair sat empty, and so did their wallet.   

Alas, I think there is a new trend emerging that may help. Lately I have been receiving "Appointment Reminders" and "Appointment Confirmations" via email for appointments. One of the Spa's I booked with sent their appointment confirmation through an email interface by Intuit called Demandforce.  

This is what my e-mail appointment confirmation it looked like:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
APPOINTMENT CONFIRMATION
Dear Rebecca,
Bella Day Spa is looking forward to seeing you on:
Appointment Details
Date:Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Time:6:00 PM

Take a moment to review the appointment details and CONFIRM your appointment. Please note, we require 48 hours advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule this appointment.
Call us at (516) 555-5555 to make any changes to your reservation, or for directions or parking information.

CONFIRM
We look forward to seeing you at your upcoming appointment.
Truly Yours, 
Bella Day Spa
(516) 555-5555
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By "confirming" my appointment, the appointment was automatically added to my Outlook, Google, Yahoo or icalendar! And Demandforce is now in Passbook!  Passbook is one of the cool new features from Apple for the iPhone iOS 6 that gives consumers an easy way to organize movie tickets, gift cards, coupons, boarding passes and more.

I know that my hair salon has started sending this "E-minders" out too using another interface. I think this is a great way to improve the chances of the client arriving to their appointment. It should also help them to remember to cancel if they can not make it.

Solar Oil - is HOT!

Solar Oil was a big hit this week. I'd have to guess that the nice weather subconsciously makes you order solar oil. Who knows? I asked our customer service team what Solar Oil was all about and they said it is a blend of three natural oils and vitamin E that serves double duty as both a nail strengthener and conditioner, as well as a cuticle softener. I don't really quite know what that means... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Solar Oil selection HERE!

Eye Popping Results! - Dr. Temt Silk / Sericin Eye Gel

 I have just recently tried Dr. Temt Silk / Sericin Eye Gel and it is by far my new favorite skincare product! Normally, I don't dabble much in eye creams/serums/gels etc., but this stuff is great. I am addicted to using it every morning now. What is great about an item like this is that you can use it on your clients in your facial services, as well as retail it to them. And believe me, they will want to purchase this product after they see and feel how great it is! The Dr. Temt Silk / Sericin Eye Gel instantly smoothes the appearance of fine lines while reducing puffiness and gently firming the eye area. My favorite thing about it is that it is also instantly refreshing and hydrating. The light gel formula contains tiny encapsulated vitamins to help deliver instant, essential moisture and nourishment to the eye area.

Major Ingredients:
Sericin: creates a protective film on the skin, smoothing.
Glycerine: improves skins moisture, smoothing.
Vitamin B6: acts against oily skin.

What is "Sericin" you ask? Well, Sericin is an active ingredient in skin care that forms a moisturizing, long wearing, protective, anti-wrinkle film on the skin's surface imparting an immediate, long lasting, smooth, silky feeling. Sericin also binds with water to help regulate the moisture balance of the skin. It diminishes the appearance of fine lines and leaves the skin feeling smooth.

So, in other words...it is pretty awesome. =)

Pour Some Sugar On Me

I'm a huge fan of body scrubs, my all time favorite is still the Desert Mineral Detox Scrub. I am always looking for great new products to try and recommend.

This past week I tried the Zanzibar Clove Sugar Scrub by Mother Earth. The first thing I noticed was how great it smelled. It has a subtle clove smell, not too strong where it's all you can smell. The second thing I noticed was the consistency, it's slightly less abrasive than many of the sugar scrubs I've tried.  I have very sensitive skin and this scrub was gentle enough to not irritate it.

A little bit of this stuff goes a long way, it really is a cost effective product! You can go a long way using this for your services, the profit margin is something everyone can be happy with. It also is a great product to retail to your clients.

I highly recommend if you do use this on your clients to have some hot towels ready to remove it. Many scrubs can be removed with just a regular wipe but this one sticks to your skin a little bit more. Plus, a hot towel always feels great and is a nice touch. (check out the great hot towel cabinets available!)

My favorite thing about this scrub is the smell once I showered. My skin did feel amazing but the lingering hint of clove was perfect. Sometimes scrubs only smell good while they are on, this one stayed on until I showered again the next morning.

If you're looking for something a little bit different for your service menu and/or a new retail product to try, this is a great budget friendly product to give a shot.

Galaxy Nails - Awesome New Nail Trends 2013

I am almost 41 years old... but I am OBSESSED with funky nail art and trends. My husband thinks I am having a mid life crisis and the Hoity-Toity nail spa I go to on Long Island thinks I'm nuts.  Every time I ask for "ombre nails" or "galaxy nails" they tell me, "We don't do that  here - go to Queens!" - HA!

So last week I slipped my nail girl a $20 and asked her to watch this YouTube video and learn the "Galaxy nail technique" so that next time I come in she can give me me the galaxy manicure of my dreams!

Salons, don't discriminate! I shouldn't have to bribe a nail tech to learn a new technique.  Learning these new trends is a great way to expand your revenue and client base.

To see the latest variations and techniques on this trend just Google image "galaxy nails"... it's impressive how creative people are!

Pros; Here is a list of the supplies / nail colors needed for the galaxy nail art technique:
Cosmetic Sponge
Dark Blue Metalic Polish
Sea Spray Polish
Pink Polish
Essie Carnival
Techo Glitter - China Glaze

Fantastic Deal on Disposable Ear Loop Face Masks...

Not all spa/salon staff use them during treatments, but for those who do, Ear Loop Face Masks are part of every work day. If a lot of staff members use them, then it is certainly worth considering saving some money on them. Look at it like this... if a nail salon has 20 nail techs and is open 6 days a week, they are probably using 120 to 240 masks a week... that is 6,240 to 12,480 masks a year. When you do the math, it turn out to be A LOT of disposable masks!

Pure Spa Direct just added "Mega Packs" of Disposable Ear Loop Face Masks from HANS... 1,000 Pack Cases that come in 20 Boxes of 50 for convenience... and the Mega Packs are only $96.00!  That means the masks are only 9.6 cents each.  If you check what you are paying for masks now, you'll probably find the HANS masks are 30% to 100% less... a great deal!

These pleated earloop procedure masks provide users with an excellent barrier.

Features:

  • Blue pleated earloop procedure masks
  • Glass-free filter
  • Latex free
  • An excellent value
  • Mega Case of 1,000! 50 masks per box, 20 boxes per Mega Case
Check them Out Here and Save:

What a Super-Bowl!

I'm talking about rubber mixing bowls from Pure Spa Direct, of course. As a long time Jets fan I don't see the Superbowl anytime in my future. Anyways, these rubber bowls are shipping everyday over at the warehouse. Most popular this week was the medium brown bowl, with the pink bowl a close second ... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Rubber Mixing Bowl selection HERE!

Increase Your Coloring Appointments With The Kas Halo Hair Dryer Processor

I am sure a lot of your clients are looking for beachy blonde locks for the summer. Whether they are wanting highlights or straight out going blonde, you want to make sure you have the best up to date equipment, so you'll have the time to fit in all your clients who are needing your coloring services!

Hair dryer processors are a great alternative to hood dryers that have always been used. The great thing about the Kas Halo Hair Dryer Processor, is that it will be more comfortable for your client and will speed up the processing time. I have been through the process of highlights so many times and can tell you that there is a big difference in the processing time between the hood dryers and the halo type processors.


The Kas Halo Hair Dryer Processor is a halo-shaped heat-source that uses a 360 degree rotary motion to evenly apply radiant heat to produce quicker and more even results. This processor also has an added feature of a fan for the neckline, which will increase client comfort and also has an adjustable heating zone. Quicker processing time leads to more client appointments and increased income for you!
Don't forget to also stock up on all your coloring supplies here at Pure Spa Direct!

Brain Pain Slowing You Down? Don't Lose Money Because of a Headache!

It seems for one reason or ten almost everyone experiences some form of brain pain at some point. Whether it's a stress headache or a full blown migraine, brain pain can seriously affect your routine.

If you've ever experienced a migraine then you know the pain, light sensitivity and nausea they bring. It can sometimes be difficult to hold anything down, including pain relief medicines. Thankfully there are other options to help ease the suffering. A new favorite of mine that has been working wonders for me this past week is the Lotus Touch Headache Relief Essential Oil Blend. Just a few drops on a tissue sitting on my desk so I can smell it while I work has been a life saver. Now, my first thought when it was suggested I use this was NO way- I'm already nauseous from the migraine - I'm not smelling anything. After a while, I was desperate, so I gave it a shot. The combination of extracts was not overpowering at all and not only started to calm my nausea and pain down, it also relaxed me. It did not completely cure my migraine but I was able to continue my day as usual. This is great for days when you have back to back clients and can't afford to be off your game. It also is a wonderful retail item - no matter what type of services you provide!

Some other great options to ease headache pain (for both you and your clients!!!) include:

HeadachEase Herb Tea 20 Tea Bags by Health King Enterprise / 20 Bags
Core Headache Ice Pillow ( I'm obsessed with this lil guy- the ice pack hits the pressure points on the base of the skull that help with headache pain of all kinds)
Cold Marble Stone Set for Migraine Therapy- why not offer some specific treatments to increase revenue!
Cold Stone Therapy for Migraine Headaches DVD- great video to learn how!

Keep some on hand for yourself or your staff....and be sure to keep extras on hand to increase your bottom line by retailing to your clients!

ALSO - if you're dead set for the traditional relief methods we have got you covered too!
Sinus Headache Caplets
Advil
Tylenol

There's no need to let a headache or migraine cost you money! You can keep up your regular pace and even make some money retailing any of the above products!

Barbicide- Are You Sanitizing??

We all know the importance of sanitizing, but the real question is whether or not you are doing everything you can to provide a clean and sanitary environment for your clients.  Barbicide, which is a germicidal, fungicidal, virucidal, and pseudomonacidal disinfectant, kills numerous pathogenic organisms.  It disinfects scissors, combs, brushes and salon surfaces.  It is safe for acrylic tanning beds/stainless steel/plastics.  And best of all?? Metals can be immersed for hours without rusting!

By using Barbicide you will display your understanding and commitment to using tools which have been disinfected minimizing all risk of cross infection from one client to the next.  Your clients will trust you more than ever and will never think twice about paying for your services!!

Take a look at our disinfectant products at Pure Spa Direct:

Barbicide® Disinfectant Concentrate / 64oz

King Research Barbicide Plus / 16 oz. - Tuberculocidal Disinfectant Concentrate - hospital-grade, EPA approved disinfectant

KING RESEARCH Barbicide Plus® / 16 oz.

Celebrate!!!! Keeping Your Clients Happy and Increasing Revenue

Keeping your clients happy is as imperative as offering quality services. Providing quality services is a must as we all know but the thing that sets decent businesses apart from the ones who are always growing is how special their clients feel.

It really doesn't take much to make people feel like you really care about them - not just their business. With a bit of creativity you can tailor ways to show your clients you are invested in their well-being. Package deals are great money saving options but don't really convey a personal caring touch that people respond to.

Some of our clients offer monthly giveaways either by raffle or by guessing the number of an item in a jar.
Others offer loyalty cards where after a set number of services they get a discount or a free add on.
Another great cost effective idea is to offer an add on treatment that will benefit the individual client based on their needs. Explain why this would be beneficial to them and offer a free demonstration or even let them experience the treatment for the first time at no charge.

Birthday or client anniversary dates are great times to show how much you care with something as simple as a personalized card signed by the staff with a coupon enclosed.

Here are a few items that our client's who cash in on caring use:

Raffle Tickets- most people I know get excited for raffles. You can pick different colored tickets for different tiered prizes and make it fun!

Glass Jar- small enough where you can fill it with items for clients to guess without making you crazy with a high quantity! Also at $2.18, extremely cost effective.

Rhinestone- a pretty way to fill a jar. A variety of colors to chose from and only $2.15 for 100 of them- cost effective.

Gift Bags- perfect sizes for gifts as well as selling packages or retailing by themselves!

Depending on what type of services you offer, you can find some great little items to give away. Check out the unlimited options at Pure Spa Direct!

You Gotta Keep 'em Separated

Separate those toes ladies! Nobody wants a messed up pedicure after paying so much for it. So help your clients look good in their sandals this summer with a bulk pack of two-tone toe separators! They were flying out of the warehouse this week... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Encore 2-Toned Toe Separator selection HERE!

Disposable Nail Products Will Make Your Salon the Most Popular Around!

Nail salon cleanliness is a hot topic these days, and nail salon clients are looking closer and closer at what goes on behind the scenes at your nail salon (See Rebeca's "Cuticle Soup" blog). With concerns such as infections and wounds, clients are more aware of nail salon practices, and looking around your establishment with a wary eye.

Wouldn't you rather be known as the cleanest salon in town? Clients notice even the smallest details, so it is important to show your clients that their safety is important to you....even if you have to charge slightly more to cover the costs. In the long run, you will definitely benefit from the clean practices.


Some "Clean" Nail Salon Practices:
Disposable files and buffers
are ideal for cleanliness and comfort!

    Use disposable nail files and nail buffers to set your clients at ease. The mini block buffers are the perfect size for just 1 use, and with some priced under $0.05/client, they are affordable, too!

    Other disposable items are a good idea too - disposable toe separators, slippers, and even manicure cups for soaking. Any item that could potentially house germs and cooties, if you can make it disposable, do it. Clients will adore you for it!

    Invest in an autoclave to thoroughly sterilize all of your metal tools. Use it properly, and be sure to let your clients see you opening the sterilized pouch. They will feel more confident in your hands.

    Never leave water standing in your pedicure tubs. Pedicure tubs must be cleaned after each and every use. Try the new Pedi Spa Cleaner by Spa Redi! Even better, instead of a pedicure spa, use a Footsie Bath featuring clean, hygienic, disposable liners to ensure cleanliness for each and every client!
    A little extra effort will go a long way with your clients - and your profits!
