Product Of The Week: Santa Barbara Massage Cream

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has been having a busy week!

This week's featured product is one of my favorites, Santa Barbara Massage Cream

Massage Therapist tend to be picky about what medium they use for massage whether it be oil, lotion, cream or gel. Personally, I've never been a fan of oil and only used lotion in school and in my own practice. When I received a gift of each scent of their line, I was immediately hooked. They smell WONDERFUL!

Made from olive oil, beeswax and coconut oil, it melts with body heat. With just the right amount of glide, this is phenomenal for both deep tissue without being too greasy, as well as silky enough for Swedish massage. It's an all-natural alternative for clients and therapists who prefer a more natural approach.

Add in the benefits of specific essential oils, you can customize for your clients. Available in Ylang Ylang & Orange, Clary Sage & Lavender, Eucalyptus, Lavender - and there is an unscented for sensitive clients or those who simply don't like scented products.

Try out an 8oz size to try for yourself, you'll be surprised how a little goes quite a long way! The smaller sizes also make great retail items!

Have an amazing weekend!

Ancient Hair Removal Process - 21st Century Style!

The hair removal industry has been booming over the last decade - clients are spending more and more money on removing unwanted hair - in fact, according to Lucy Peters, hair removal is the 4th most popular minimally-invasive procedure performed!

We have heard from many clients recently about sugaring - the age-old hair removal process that dates back to the times of Cleopatra or before. Many of our clients are interested, some swear by it, and it has piqued our interest too!

This ancient sugar hair removal technique has been used for centuries in the Orient to remove body hair. Made of all-natural products without preservatives or additives gives this formulation the advantage of being water soluble and suitable for all hair removal areas, including facial hair.

Body sugaring is a natural exfoliant that removes dead cells and is worked in the same direction as natural hair growth. This results in a significant reduction of ingrown hairs right from first application until their complete elimination. This is a technique that is different than waxing; it doesn’t require cotton strips and a small amount of sugar can cover a large body area. This hair removal technique is perfect to prevent the risks of cross-contamination, in part because there is no repetitive dipping into the container during the same treatment. The use of gloves is recommended and easy to use making it a pleasant and hygienic service.

Epillyss, the world-renowned wax manufacturer, has now released a line of Sugar Paste to their product lineup! A gentle treatment with a water soluble product, all formulations offered are made of sugar, lemon juice and water, and do not contain chemical additives.


The Épillyss sugar is applied at body temperature; it only adheres to the hair and not to the skin and ensures a comfortable application and gentle removal. We must spread the paste on the area of hair removal in a back and forth movement and remove with a dry and quick flick of the hand to remove the hair follicle.  You must choose the formulation that will suit you; your choice will be done largely depending on the temperature of your hand. Indeed, as the application is done with the fingertips, this will have a great influence on the texture of the sugar paste during application. A cold hand will require a more flexible paste, hot hands will require a harder paste.

DETAILS:
  • Available in Soft, Supple, or Regular formulations
  • 35 oz. microwavable container
  • Excellent for sensitive skin and all hair types (ideally 1/8" - 1/4" hair length)
  • 100% natural - no additives, colors, preservatives, or fragrance
  • Water soluble - easy cleanup
  • Extremely gentle to skin - applies at room temperature

100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
Sugar, lemon juice, and water

AVAILABLE FORMULAS (in order of hardness):

Product Of The Week: Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads

Happy Friday!

Now that cold and flu season has been hitting areas hard, do you have any items on hand to ease congestion?

Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads are an excellent, effective and affordable item everyone should have at their retail counter this season. We had a bottle here in the office and I purchased one as a gift for my mother last year - amazing!  A year later, and my mother still talks about how these helped clear her head.

These powerful little beads are full of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass to easy congestion and boost the stuffiest of moods. They come with a cute little pouch to fill with the beads making inhalation easy and portable.  You don't have to fill the pouch up completely as a little can go a long way, depending on the level of congestion.

Did I mention these are only $5.50 each? Have a tester bottle nearby, offer it to clients to try or try it on them during a service if they are congested! Retailing at $10.00 makes it appealing to clients as well, especially once they've had a chance to smell (and feel!) how great this is.

These make great impulse item purchases, gifts and you can easily use them as an add on "boost"!

Weathered Hands- This Product has got you Covered.. Literally

Winter weather can wreak havoc on hands. Want to know why? Dr. Jessica Wu explains "Dry skin is especially common in the winter months when the humidity level outside drops. When the air outside is cold and dry, the water in your skin evaporates more quickly; this makes your skin feel dry and tight and makes it look flaky. In fact, your skin loses more than 25 percent of its ability to hold moisture in the winter." (Everyday Health)

You can help your clients and boost your sales at the same time.
