Ready to add some new services for fall? Adding grape seed to your treatments is not only a great theme for fall menus, but this superfood has been proven to have healing powers for health, wellness, and the skin. Research shows that most of the antioxidants can be found in the grape's seed, along with its oils and extracts.

Don't Just Push them, Remove Them!

Don't just push cuticles back, remove them! Star Nails Cuticle Remover is unbelievably effective and inexpensive! Cuticle Remover,by STAR NAIL is the your cuticles worst nightmare, and your clients dream product! The creamy pink formula is both appealing to the eye and soothing to the nail!


Available in 3 Different sizes, there is a size that meets everyones needs. The 1/2 oz. is perfect for personal and retail use, as well as small stations. The 2.5 oz. comes in the perfect bottle. The pretty round bottle has a slight slant on the bottom making application effortless. This bottle is small enough to fit at any station and pretty enough to leave out at all times. The 16 oz. is perfect for refilling the smaller sizes. Instead of purchasing the smaller bottles all the time you can just refill them with the 16 oz.

With all the cuticle removers out there, its hard to choose one. I have tried many different ones over the years and I have loved a lot of them. I would recommend many other Cuticle Remover along with Star Nail's, but the reason I felt the need to write about the Cuticle Remover by Star Nail is because I feel that it is the universal Cuticle Remover. It is trusted by Nail Techs and loved by clients! The rich and creamy formula is not harsh on the nail and makes the removal process quick and easy. It's not just the colors that is attractive - the price is also appealing. For such an effective product it's hard to believe that is priced so well. I absolutely love the formula of STAR NAIL Cuticle Remover!

Facial Products That Every Massage Therapist NEEDS TO KNOW About...

Neck & Facial Massage w/ Facial Oil
The little extra TLC that will make your spa the place to be...The facial products that every Massage Therapist needs to know about...

The most frequent question I get asked from Massage Therapists is "can I use the same products I use on my clients body on their face?" Although there are a few products that can be used on both the body and face, 90% of the time the answer is NO!

If you think about it, do you wash your body with the same products you wash your face with? Do you use the same lotion or cream on your body as you do your on face? I'm going to assume that you answered no to both those questions, and I think if you're in this business you know exactly why you did. There are many reasons why you should not use a product made for the body on the face. Your face is more sensitive, more prone to irritation and it is much more noticeable when irritation occurs. I don't think any client would be happy leaving a fabulous massage to come home and see that their face did not enjoy it as much as their body did.
Massage Oils Can Be Too Heavy for Delicate Facial Skin.

When a client comes in for a service, they are hoping to unwind, relax and be pampered, not end up with clogged pores and irritated skin. If your client leaves your hands with a skin issue caused by product that should not have been used, it will not only be a problem for them but you as well. Most clients won't even notice if you are using the same products on their face and body, until it's too late. How can you prevent this irreversible mistake? Make your clients aware before someone else does! By telling your client that you are going to use a different oil and cream or lotion on their face, they will wonder why no one has offered this before. This little extra step will make your clients feel that you are knowledgeable in your craft and concerned with their face, body, skin and overall well being.

Create A Special Experience For Your Clients.
Pure Spa Direct offers many products that allow you to provide the services your clients expect and appreciate. We even carry entire product lines specializing in facial massage oils, lotions and creams that target different skin types. By providing your clients the choice of oil and lotions or creams specific to their skin type, you are giving them that extra attention that the competition does not. By adding this extra little service, that is a minimal cost to you, your clients will feel that you have gone above and beyond and will surely come back and recommend you to others. This little extra addition provides the ability to offer comfort, ease and trust, just the little extra TLC that everyone wants and needs.

Paraffin Wax: Affordable Luxury

Hey everyone! Adrienne here with your weekly guide to fantastic spa and salon products and suggestions. My mission is to help you, the business owner, increase your profits, achieve your business goals, and expand your business, all the while ensuring that your clients are happy and excited to come back for more.

Recommendation of the Week: Paraffin!

Now that the majority of the country is in the thick of winter, it is time to break out those paraffin machines! The fact of the matter is, 99.99% of consumers out there love a paraffin dip. Even though it is typically seen as a luxurious service offered by only the high-end spas, paraffin treatments can cost only pennies per treatment. In addition to being cost-effective, paraffin will also help enhance the spa experience for your clients. The mere act of applying the warm and sultry smooth wax to dry, achy hands and feet will automatically soothe and relax your customers. After 15 minutes, their skin will be significantly smoother as well.

Pure Spa Direct offers multiple brands of Paraffin, one of my personal favorites being the Amber Paraffin. It is tripled filtered to ensure its purity and comes in a variety of scents and colors, or lack thereof. There also a few products that can help increase the effectiveness of a treatment:

~Apply Algae Oil to the skin prior to the paraffin so as to ensure more efficient absorption of moisture.
~Wrap hands and feet in plastic mitts, then cover them with heated mittens and booties. This will extend the treatment and increase moisture absorption.

If you already offer this service, consider doing a promotion of Free Paraffin Applications with a chargeable upgrade to the heated mitts and booties. If you do not currently offer this service, consider adding paraffin to your menu - Your customers and your Bottom Line will thank you!
