Amazing "GREEN" Mineral Makeup Brush Kit - A Must-Have for Winter!

I am always searching for new and wonderful makeup brushes, but I usually balk at the price tag of the top of the line sets and revert to using my tried and true (and OLD) brushes that I have in my bag. When I saw Pure Spa Direct added these new Bamboo Cosmetic Brush Sets, I was so excited! I waver between loving brushes with natural bristles and brushes with synthetic bristles, and have been leaning towards natural bristles lately, so I was unsure if I should try them. Boy, am I glad I did! The large contour brush is amazing for applying mineral blush and bronzer! My cheekbones haven't looked this good since 1999!

These sets are not only good for your makeup and your wallet, but they are good for the environment, too! They boast Green Features such as:
  • Sustainable bamboo handles
  • 100% Vegan Nylon Bristles
  • Recycled woven canvas travel case
  • Recycled Aluminum ferrule
Set at an unbelievable wholesale price of $10.47 with a suggested retail price of $19.99, this brush set is bound to thrill your clients and fly off your shelves!

Garshana (Ayurvedic Massage) for Wellness

With everyone "going green" these days, natural spa treatments are gaining popularity in spas across the country. Adding Garshana Massage is an easy way to add another natural treatment to your menu without breaking the bank!

In Sanskrit, Garshana literally means "rubbing" or "exfoliation." A Garshana massage is a dry lymphatic massage, where the therapist wears wool Garshana gloves, and is performed without oil. The therapist briskly rubs the client with upward strokes, cleansing and exfoliating the skin. This type of massage increases circulation, so clients who receive Garshana massages on a regular basis can also experience a breakdown of fat and cellulite.

Traditionally, a Garshana massage is followed by a warm oil massage. Oil applied to the skin after a Garshana massage penetrates better, as the skin is warmed, the dry skin has been removed, and the blood cells are closer to the skin's surface.
Our high-quality Garshana gloves are hand-woven in Iceland. To view them, click on the following link:
