Product Of The Week: Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm

If you have clients suffering from dry skin, or are wanting to get their skin in silky smooth shape in anticipation of the warmer weather, take a look at the Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm.

The Alchimie Forever line was created by a dermatologist in Switzerland to bring effective, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly products to the market. The dry skin balm is chock full of  super hydrating ingredients including shea butter, watercress and jojoba. One of my favorite things is that it can be used on all skin types, including sensitive or sensitized skin. It doesn't have a weird sticky residue either, it just leaves the skin super soft.

It's the perfect time of year to educate clients on maintaining their skin hydration. Have some on hand to finish services off and put a few near the checkout for easy retailing!

Acne is an ongoing concern for many spa clients across the world. From teenagers to adults, people are looking for effective, painless ways to treat acne. You can offer an easy add-on to your acne facials with the Blue LED Pulse Light Therapy for Acne by Meishida.
Several ground-breaking studies conducted by several medical groups in the United States and Europe have found that narrow-band, high-intensity light in the blue wavelength range can be a safe, gentle and effective approach to treating mild to moderate inflammatory acne. 

Unlike some acne treatments, blue light at specific wavelengths does not produce damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays which have been shown to cause skin damage, does not result in dryness or discomfort associated with topical acne medications and does not cause any known side effects. 

The advantages of Blue LED Pulse Light Acne Therapy include:

  • 100% Natural and Non-Invasive
  • Drug-free With No Adverse Side Effects
  • Safe For All Ages and Safe For Daily Use

Product Of The Week: June Jacobs Brightening Moisturizer

The recommendation I've been asked for multiple times each day this week so far, is for a moisturizer. Dry, aging skin are on the forefront of client concerns.
My mother called me a week or so ago complaining that she just can't find an effective moisturizer that brightens. She said she had tried multiple ones that were okay but none seemed to brighten. Now my mother is in her 70's and isn't up on ingredients and things like that. She is the client who just needs recommendations from someone she trusts. How many of your clients are the same?

I sent her a bottle of the June Jacobs Brightening Moisturizer as a surprise. She noticed from the start that it just felt nicer when she put it on. She enjoyed not having to slather it on (a little goes a long way with June Jacobs products!) and how fresh it felt. She called me after 4 uses excited as her skin was no longer dry, and it was brighter already.

Paraben and preservative free, lactic acid for gentle exfoliation, combines with sweet almond oil and shea butter for the hydrating effects. Lemon peel extract rejuvenates and increases the luster of tired skin, while bearberry root, mulberry root, licorice extract and Gigawhite™ act as natural lightening agents to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. What that all means is your clients get a one-two punch of goodness leaving their skin soft, supple and looking younger!

I'm sharing this quick story as it is important to always be aware of who your clients are, not just what is going on with their skin. We may forget, as professionals immersed in the industry, that not everyone knows what may seem "novice" or "basic" terms, products or ingredients.  

Test this out on yourself, your VIP clients or bring in a few to get clients feedback.

Product Of The Week: AquaBella Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a fun and successful week!

The product of the week (and a new favorite of mine!), is the Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System.  If you haven't yet heard of this game changing type of facial, or are familiar with the rather expensive alternative, now is the perfect time to take a look.

A major reason this has become one of the hottest new trends is how gentle it is while remaining effective. As effective as microdermabrasion, yet gentle enough to use on all skin types and ethnicity. Instead of blasting the face with crystals (or diamond burs), this uses only liquids.

What does this mean for your clients? No down time, no bruising and immediate results. Immediate results - your clients will see and feel a difference after ONE treatment. This results in packages for your business and glowing clients.

The Aqua Bella combines powerful vacuum technology and adjustable pulsation within a robust, excellent quality system for superior infusion results. Adjustable vacuum-massage allows cleansing and hydrating solutions to consistently unclog and gently cleanse pores, aqua-foliate dead skin cells, and extract keratin, sebum, blackheads, or other impurities. Simultaneously, the hydrolyzed treatment tips smoothly glide across the skin, dispersing and infusing solutions where the skin cells are regenerating.

One of my favorite things about this - extractions are less painful! Simply turn the suction up on the machine to extract! No more painful tools or pinching!

If you want to take your facials and business to the next level in the new year, hit the ground running with this portable powerhouse!

AquaBella Overview:

Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

This weeks featured product is the Indira Portable Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber by Silver Spa. A vital component to any facial, is a deep skin cleanse. Removing all of the dirt and debris from deep within the pores does not have to be a brutal process for clients, or for the technician.

This makes it an excellent alternative to microdermabrasion and gentle enough to use on clients with sensitive skin.

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: Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads

Happy Friday!

Now that cold and flu season has been hitting areas hard, do you have any items on hand to ease congestion?

Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads are an excellent, effective and affordable item everyone should have at their retail counter this season. We had a bottle here in the office and I purchased one as a gift for my mother last year - amazing!  A year later, and my mother still talks about how these helped clear her head.

These powerful little beads are full of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass to easy congestion and boost the stuffiest of moods. They come with a cute little pouch to fill with the beads making inhalation easy and portable.  You don't have to fill the pouch up completely as a little can go a long way, depending on the level of congestion.

Did I mention these are only $5.50 each? Have a tester bottle nearby, offer it to clients to try or try it on them during a service if they are congested! Retailing at $10.00 makes it appealing to clients as well, especially once they've had a chance to smell (and feel!) how great this is.

These make great impulse item purchases, gifts and you can easily use them as an add on "boost"!
