Facial Client Retail: Dermalogica & June Jacobs Powder Exfoliant Reviews

Estheticians often tell me that if they had to send their clients home with only ONE retail product to maintain beautiful, glowing skin, it would be an exfoliator.  Something gentle, but powerfully effective in sweeping away dead skin cells, brightening dull complexions and keeping skin clear of breakouts, thus keeping clients' skin looking great in between facial appointments. This is important for both the client and the esthetican because great product recommendations build trust and repeat business.

SO what to retail? 

Years ago, my esthetican sold me Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant after a facial: A dry, powder exfoliating polish that activates with water. I LOVED it devotedly for a few years. I have subsequently tried BareMinerals / Bare Escentuals - Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser and found it to be blah.  So when June Jacobs recently launched her Radiant Refining Exfoliating Powder,  I was eager to try and compare.  

Rice, Bamboo, Salicylic Acid & Papain
Leave Skin GLOWING!
#1 Retail to Clients!
The results of June Jacob's Radiant Refining Exfoliating Powder.... IT IS MY NEW OBSESSION!  My skin is not glowing - it is BEAMING.  All the little hormonal pimples I had bulging at the surface of my skin have retreated. My skin looks smooth, healthy, flawless and RADIANT, and it looks YOUNG!  Which, after just turning 40 last month, is very important!!  

Also, Radiant Refining Powder is Paraben Free! Dermalogica's Microfoliant is not. (My bottle of Microfoliant  has "Methylparaben" listed) 

I am also in love with the amount of anti-oxidants in June's formula.  Microfoliant has some, but JJ's Radiant Refining Powder has MORE - like: 
  • Bearberry Leaf Extract
  • Mulberry Fruit Extract
  • Lemon Fruit Extract
  • Willow Bark Extract
  • Goji Berry Fruit Extract
  • Pomegranate Fruit Ferment Extract
  • Grape Seed Extract
  • Red Tea Leaf Extract
June Jacob's is a world renowned name and brand in the five-star spa industry.  Her products are highly regarded for their natural properties and effective performance.

Facial Massage Lotion with A Light Touch & Lemongrass, Tangerine Scent

Facial Massage Lotion needs
great glide & to be light on skin.
Someone brought me a sample of  Biotone's Facial Therapy Massage Creme the other day.  I know that many estheticians call Pure Spa Direct inquiring about the "best lotion for facial massages".  I know personally that most clients like a light scent and light feel.  I feel that unscented massage lotions smell unappealing.  Without a scent in the cream, I can almost smell what the Esthetican had for lunch.  Once hands heat up, scent pours out.  If the scent is  too Ayurvedic, some people are prone to headaches (I'm one of them too).  So when I tried Biotone's Facial Therapy Massage Creme, I was pleasantly surprised!  It has a gentle, Tangerine and Lemongrass scent that is released during the massage that is beautiful.  I don't know how else to describe it other than it is reminiscent of some of my most expensive facials!  The scent is as gentle as the lotion, and dissipates with absorption.  This products has an amazing ingredients list of botanical extracts, light emollients & anti-oxidants.  The texture of this lotion has great slip, but not drippy or pasty.  Estheticians will certainly have excellent control over the facial contours and rhythmic massage, and clients won't feel gooey, or congested by the texture.  We have several types of Facial massage lotions at Pure Spa Direct, this one is definitively a favorite!

Biotone's Facial Therapy Massage Creme Contains:
Botanical extracts of White Peach, Pineapple, Quince and Mango; Mandarin Extract, Biofirming Complex of CoQ10, Vitamins K and C; Essential Oils of Tangerine, Rosewood and Lemongrass; Paraben-Free
Firming actives and skin smoothing botanicals for facials, massage or leave-on moisturizer. Made with bio-firming complex of CoQ10, Vitamin K & Vitamin C.
