Toe Rope

We sell Intrinsics products everyday, but last week so a huge jump in Intrinsics Toe Rope. Everyone is getting those last minute pedicures before the cold season I'd guess. I put them between my fingers and they are pretty comfy. It's probably even better on your toes!... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Intrinsics Toe Rope HERE!

Up Your Pedicure Game!

Girls always want smooth feet, right?! Especially in the summer when those sandals come out. I know this because we sold a ton of the Jelly Spa Pedi Baths last week. By the case and by the single - these items were hot like the temperature in NY. My favorite scent is the Pearl Glow... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy!

See What's New in the Voesh World!

Voesh was a big seller last week and I might know why! We got in 3 new products - Lavender, Jasmine, & Mango! Mango is definitely my new favorite (maybe only because I love the fruit). Why is Voesh so popular? Maybe it is the awesome packaging, or the great price, or maybe it is the results? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Voesh of New York Product selection HERE!

Pedi Bowl Too Heavy?

This may seem like an odd thing to be excited over but, I'm super excited for the PediBowl Dolly by Touch America!

I speak with a good amount of clients who need to be able to move their pedicure bowls quickly and easily. Whether it's due to the weight or distance they need to move it or due to physical limitations, lifting a full pedicure bowl can be a challenge.

With a bottom base able to fit up to a 15" base, this sturdy lil' guy will be flying off the shelves!

This time of year is excellent for replacing aging pedicure bowls, add in this dolly and you'll be amazed at how many more services you may be doing simply by saving some time (and back aches!) on each service!

Perfectly Portable Pedicures!

I've spoken to quite a few business owners lately looking to maximize their space while still being able to offer a variety of services. Many clients who offer nail services or who are looking to start offering them, have been gravitating towards portable pedicure spa.

A portable pedicure spa enables you to offer pedicure add ons easily to other services without the client having to switch rooms! If you have no nail services booked or only book them on certain days, you're not loosing space by having a stationary pedicure chair in place.

One of the portable options that has been quite the buzz is the SaniJet Pipeless Portable Foot Bath by Living Earth Crafts. If you are looking for a high quality, affordable (don't forget we offer financing for equipment and furniture!), and easy to use portable pedicure spa...this is it! Quiet and comfortable - two vital elements!

One of the leaders in the industry, Living Earth Craft products combine quality craftsmanship with comfort and beautiful options...once you bring in a piece of theirs, you'll be hooked!

Check out this Cure!

The Pedistill Foot-Leg Rest was super popular last week. Curious, I finally read up on them and found out they provide clients with a comfortable leg rest while putting the foot at proper service level for the technician. AND they feature contoured surfaces and a sturdy contoured bottom that conform to the rim of a tub. I'm only guessing those are good things... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy!

Let It Snow!

Even though it's 60 degrees here in New York, it's still winter, and a little snow is always fun! I'm sure I'll be rescinding that statement once it becomes 30 degrees with a foot or two of snow on the ground come mid February. Looking to make it snow in your spa? Well, not actual snow, but we do have an amazing scrub that looks just like it! Be sure to check out our Pedi-Redi Snow! Pedi Redi helps to clean and prepare the feet for treatment by softening calluses and cuticles for easy exfoliation. This special blend is formulated without any dyes or fragrances, making it ideal for your clients who are sensitive to scents. You can even add essential oils to customize your own scrub! This is the type of snow you're definitely going to want at your spa all year long :)

Prep for Turkey Day with Holiday Pedicures!

Now that the excitement of Halloween has died down, Thanksgiving is almost here! Are you going to be offering any Thanksgiving nail specials to entice existing and attract new clients? Offering something new and different from your competition will have your clients ?

Here is a pedicure treatment to ease dry, tired feet whether your clients will be cooking, socializing or shopping!

Thanksgiving Pedicure - complete with a foot soak, masque and moisturizer

Foot Soak:
Add 8 drops of spearmint essential oil and 4 drops rosemary essential oil to your filled pedicure bowl or tub (you can easily make this more "manly" by using cedarwood or sandalwood instead of rosemary oil)


Foot Masque:
In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of Sedona Mud Powder with 1 tablespoon of water and stir. Add in 1 teaspoon of clove powder and mix well. Add in 5 drops of spearmint essential oil followed by 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornmeal and mix well. As the mixture sits,the cornmeal may absorb the water, slowly add more as needed. Place the bowl into a hot towel cabi or mud warmer.

Moisturizer:
Combine 1/2 tablespoon whipped shea butter with 3 drops of spearmint and 2 drops rosemary essential oil (again, you can switch the rosemary oil for male clients if they prefer). Place the bowl into a hot towel cabi or mud warmer as well.

Soak the clients feet for 5-10 minutes after cleaning and disinfecting them. Apply the foot masque to one foot to just above the knee. Place a plastic liner and electric or herbal bootie over the foot before moving to the other leg/foot. Allow the masque to sit for 10 minutes before removing the bootie. Cut the tip of the liner to allow you to access the clients toes. Perform your regular pedicure procedure (check out the new polishes!) while the masque sits on the clients legs. Remove the liner and mixture when finished - hot towels work great for this! Finish off with the moisturizer, giving any excess to the client to take home.

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!
