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!

Product Of The Week: CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream

Happy Friday!

I was super excited when I saw this new addition to the Pure Spa Direct line up. I'm a huge fan of magnesium lotions and oils. It has helped me with migraines and muscle cramping, and I recommend it to friends regularly.

Aside from the benefits I have experienced with magneisum, CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream is helpful with a multitude of things including fluid retention, calming nerves and detoxifying the body, insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Harvested from the Dead Sea where the mineral content is at its highest containing 21 minerals, this product is amazing.

You can retail and use this in services making it an easy retail item. Offer it as an add on to a pedicure (medi pedi upgrade!), manicure, massage even as a simple hand/leg massage while a client is getting a facial. Advise they try it a few times to see the results, and have it ready to retail!

See you next Friday, have an amazing weekend!

Relax & Wax!

Relax & Wax products were a pretty big seller last week. With names like "Get the Bump Outta Here" & "No Scream Cream" it's no wonder they are selling. If you've read my past blogs about nail polish then you know I love clever names like that!... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Relax & Wax selection HERE!

Combinal Lash & Brow Tint...

Eyelash and Eyebrow dye/tint are always popular items every week, however, this last week goes to Combinal! Not sure why, but we sold a ton of Combinal tint products. The Skin Protection Cream and the Hydrogen Peroxide were both hot ticket items ... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Combinal selection HERE!

New Organic Massage Oil And Vegan Lotion!

It's great to see so many companies adding in more organic, natural and even vegan products! I get excited every time we add a new one. I was super excited to see the new certified organic massage oil and vegan lotion.

I speak with clients every day who are concerned with the ingredients they are using on themselves and their clients. Sacred Earth has always had a strong line of products and this is a great addition!

The oils are USDA certified and concentrated so you don't need a lot to go a long way! They are also a lighter oil that allows you to do effleurage and deep work which is always nice.

The vegan lotions are  certified by the Vegan Awareness Foundation (Vegan Action) and contain USDA NOP Certified ingredients. Hypo-allergenic and full of organic polyunsaturated oils and organic botanical extracts this is sure to become a favorite!

Check them all out!

Sacred Earth Certified Organic Oils
Sacred Earth Vegan Lotion

Be sure to have the certified organic arnica salve and muscle rub on hand as well. Great for use in services and even better for retail!

Seasonal Pedicure: Tropical Mango!

With summer being official, it's time to reconsider your spa services! What better way to do so than offer a seasonal pedicure? I'm not sure about you, but nothing screams tropics and summer vacation more than the aromatic scents of a mango. The mango is mainly cultivated in tropical climates and is a delicious, seasonal summer fruit. They contain over 20 vitamins and minerals, specifically high in vitamin A which is great for keeping the skin and hair moisturized. They are very high in antioxidants which is perfect for anti-aging and great for giving skin a healthy glow. 

Are you in need of a new menu service? We carry a variety of mango products here at Pure Spa Direct. A great seasonal treatment you can offer your clients is a Tropical Mango Pedicure! Not sure where to begin? Don't worry, we have you covered!



Our Cleansing Gel by California Mango is great for prepping your clients' feet for their pedicure. A rich combination of Aloe Vera, Vitamins and revitalizing herbs, this ultra-conditioning formula gently cleanses, leaving skin with a glowing, silky finish. To top it off, it will leave a delicious mango scent on the skin that lasts all day! Yum.





Next, exfoliate your clients' skin with our California Mango Natural Exfoliating Scrub. This is an all natural exfoliating formula containing a high concentration of pumice, aloe vera, jojoba oil, and vitamin E.






How awesome is this Mango Cuticle Oil from Scentuals? Why have boring, regular scented cuticle oil when you can keep the health of your clients' cuticles in great shape AND have them smell like mangoes. It's no argument in my opinion!








Apply our California Mango Spa Masque to your clients' feet to remove impurities from the skin. This clay based mask is rich in jojoba oil, meadow foam seed oil, aloe vera & vitamin e, and mango mud which absorbs oils. On top of smelling amazing, your clients will love the way their skin feels!







Lastly, to prep your clients skin before applying polish, moisturize your clients' skin with California Mango Extreme Creme. This creamy formula relieves dry skin instantly and leaves a soft layer of protection.

Sleeping Beauty

It's no secret that the best and most natural way to enhance your beauty happens at night: beauty sleep!

There's good reason as to why's it's called beauty sleep. While you're at rest, your body is working hard to repair and restore your body. How does this benefit your beauty? Your skin cells turnover and heal, resulting in glowing skin and healthier hair. 

Do you offer your clients products for overnight use? Not sure where to begin? There are many ways to enhance your customers' already natural beauty regimen of a good night's rest! See below for the products we recommend here at Pure Spa Direct:



Eyes

Our eye cream from Oxygen Botanicals is perfect for your clients to use at night. Its key ingredients include Japanese Green Tea Extract, Chamomile Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, and Vitamin A, which are perfect for maintaining skin elasticity around the delicate areas of the eyes. With brighter, moisturized skin around the eyes, your clients will look more awake and beautiful! This cream can also minimize fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Perfect for AM use as well!





Body

Hands and feet are often neglected in an overnight routine, considering they are a couple our most used body parts! It is essential to keep them moisturized for beautifying and anti-aging purposes. Our Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Hand and Foot Cream by June Jacobs Spa Collection is a great cream for your customers to add to their nightly moisturizing routine. They are perfect for retailing (bonus points for being paraban free)!






Hair

An easy way to keep your customers' hair moisturized and soft is to use a leave in conditioner at night. Our Onesta Quench Leave-In Conditioner is made with all natural ingredients and certified organic extracts of linden, goldenseal, and orchid. Have them apply this to dry hair at night, and throw over a hair cap for a simple and easy overnight conditioning treatment!

Jazz Up Your Clients' Faces with June Jacobs Cucumber Reviving Cream


This time of year for many can be rough for their skin. The colder weather, dry air and forced heat can wreak havoc with skin moisture.

One of my favorite products is the Cucumber Reviving Day Cream™ - 50 grams / 1.7 oz. by June Jacobs Spa Collection . I have very sensitive skin, anything I put on my face causes it to break out. I am so thankful for this product as it is gentle on my face and extremely hydrating. A little bit goes a long way so you get quite a bit out of the container. It goes on smooth and has a fresh scent to it.

Another great thing about this product is that it is preservative and paraben free! It is formulated with cucumber extract and milk protein to cool, soothe and energize the skin. Nourishing carrageenan and algae extracts to help retain moisture, while shea butter provides continuous hydration, helping to smooth away fine lines and refining the skin’s texture. It is also packed with an anti-oxidant blend of white, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed extracts help to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature aging!


This is a great product to retail to your clients looking for a high quality gentle moisturizer at a great price.

This is also great to use in your services for those same clients. After one use, your clients will be begging you to sell them a bottle!

High Quality + Low Cost = Pure-ssage Massage Products

In these tough economic times, virtually every single industry has been affected, including the beauty industry. Cut-backs have been made across the board and I help clients on a daily basis find lower cost versions of the products that they used to order. The good news, however, is the lower cost does not mean poor quality. In fact it means quite the opposite with the Pure-ssage™ Massage Line!

The Pure-ssage Line consists of Massage Oil, Massage Cream and Massage Lotion that comes in sizes ranging from 8 ounces to 5 Gallons. All of their products are Unscented, Nut-Free, and Paraben-Free! In addition, the cream, lotion and oil absorb easily and do not leave a greasy residue. Last, but definitely not least, these products are extremely cost effective. You get a plethora of the highest quality product for an extremely low price.

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.
