Hot Summer Retail Item: Beard Brushes!

Summer is officially here!

I'm a huge fan of retail sales, especially impulse buys at the register. People are getting ready to leave, feeling amazing after their service - this is the prime time to get them some great retail products!

Having a useful retail item at the checkout makes for an easy sell. It's no secret these days that guys want to look their best and are going to the spa/salon more frequently. For your bearded clients (and those that love them!) need a beard brush to keep those viking-esq hairs tamed and looking amazing.

Scalpmaster has you covered with awesome looking beard brushes in a container! Boar bristles, wooden handle and a fun design - all for less than $2.00 a brush!

Pop this container next to the register and get those summer retail sales kicked off!

Deadline Lurking? Who Ya Gonna Call? Pure Spa Direct!

Running a business is not always an easy, smooth or predictable ride. Things change day by day and sometimes minute by minute.


I spoke to a frantic spa owner this week who is having a grand reopening in two weeks. She was frantic because she realized she did not have her treatment beds. The reasons on how she ended up two weeks out is irrelevant. There will usually be some sort of last minute issue that arises leaving you scrambling.

In this one situation, we discussed her needs in a treatment bed, the look and feel she was going for as well as the budget. We looked at some different options that fell within her parameters, and picked one that would arrive before her reopening - with time to spare!

If you find yourself in a time crunch or emergency situation, take a deep breath and reach out to us! We will do everything in our power to meet your deadline without you having to sacrifice quality or have a nervous breakdown in the process!

Easy Tips To Boost Retail Sales This Holiday Season

Looking to really boost your retail sales? With the holidays quickly approaching now is a good time to take a look at the products you offer, along with these great ideas/tips to maximize your area and efforts!

When was the list time you changed the items you retail? I'm not saying ditch product lines or anything however, your clients can and will become bored with seeing the same items every time. Mix it up by throwing in some unique items to catch the eye. Things like Therapearls, salt lamps, raw mud soap, and the Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub - Anti-Cellulite Formula (this is our most popular retail item!)

What type of music are you playing in your business? Do you have different music for your rooms and main area? Having more upbeat music by the register (I'm not suggesting blasting dance music or making a drastic change) has been shown to energize clients after their services, putting them more in that buying mood.

It's no secret that impulse buying is the easiest way to boost sales. If you don't have something little, budget friendly and useful by the cash register, you're missing out on the easiest of sales! Things like the wet brush squirts, lip balms (Eco-Fin body balm is phenomenal!), tweezer displays, hair ties even facial/body tanners set by the checkout are top sellers!

Do you have any lighting in your retail area? Back lighting shelves is a great idea however, just being sure there is adequate lighting may be enough to bring attention back to the area.

Do you have pricing on your retail items? Most people will not purchase an item if there is no price attached to it. They may feel uncomfortable asking the price, not purchasing after knowing the price (whether they were just curious or can't afford it) or just not even bother asking at all. Take a few extra minutes to label your retail items. It doesn't have to be an unattractive stock label, you can create them to fit your style.

This one I found interesting - is there a mirror in your retail area? No matter what you are retailing, people like to see themselves. Even a handheld discreet one can make the difference....a $3.00 investment that can really pay off!

Be sure to have "tester" products out for your clients. People are more likely to buy items they can touch, smell and try out. Be sure to label the bottles "tester" just so there is no confusion!

Even if you change up your retail area twice a year, it may be enough to keep those profits on the rise. If you're not sure what you want to retail, give us a call!!!

Beat Winter Skin With This Power Packed Combo!

Fall is now in full force (even though it's going to be 75 degrees in NY today!) and hopefully your fall menu will be boosting you through until winter. It's a great time to start thinking about ideas for the winter. If you're looking to offer your clients a gentle yet effective way to combat dry winter skin, we have something that will have them singing your praises!

With these three products, your clients will be ready to take on the cold weather, wind and snow! These are all great for sensitive clients as well!

Alchimie Forever Gentle Refining Scrub- with cranberry beads, jojoba pearls, and papaya extract combined with shea butter, this will gently slough off those dry dead skin cells and hydrate that fresh clean skin underneath.

Alchimie Forever Kantic+ Intensely Nourishing Cream  (a best seller on it's own!)- just as the name suggests, this is a powerful hydrating cream designed to nourish dry, dehydrated and mature skin.

Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm - this balm can be used anywhere you have dry skin. This is a great item for clients who have very dry skin or anyone who needs a boost of hydration.

Be sure to be offering your clients SPF like the Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23 or BurnOut, all year round as well! Many clients don't realize the need for SPF outside of their beach months!

Fall Isn't Just for Pumpkins!

Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin beer, pumpkin body cream, pumpkin tampons (wait these actually DONT exist, and should never)...by the time October hits, almost every retail product and food item is associated with a pumpkin. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed my PSL from Starbucks this morning, my apartment is already stocked with pumpkin candles and pumpkin body cream, and cans of pumpkin puree are in my kitchen waiting to be made into festive pumpkiny treats. I think it's time to give the pumpkins a break (at least for this blog post) and highlight another festive fall scent that is often overlooked: Ginger Red Currant!

If you haven't already started incorporating fall scents into your spa products yet, what are you waiting for? I'm sure you're fully stocked on pumpkin, but have you considered Ginger Red Currant as a new scent to add to your spa? The smooth fruity scent of red currant combined with spicy ginger will make your clients excited for the upcoming cooler months as well as the holidays that are rapidly approaching! 

We have an amazing product in stock now for fall. Check out our Maxim Pedi Redi Red Ginger & Currant scrub! This scrub soften calluses and cuticles and will remove dead skin while significantly reducing scrubbing time for the pedicurist. This specially formulated product contains the delicious essential and fragrance oils of red currant and ginger. Get this in your spa for the upcoming months, and your clients will thank you!

New from Hempz!

Browsing the "Just Added" section of our site is my favorite things to do! Who doesn't like look at new products? If you haven't already, I highly recommend you do that in your free time (or right now!) especially with the seasons rapidly changing. Have you considered adding any new products for fall to your spa? I was excited to see new products from Hempz on our just added section. Made with all natural ingredients and 100% pure natural hemp seed oil, it can be a fun addition to your retail shelf! Hemp can be a key ingredient in products for hair care and skin care, as hemp seeds are rich in Vitamins E, C, B1, B2, B3 and B6. They are also a great source of essential fatty acids which are beautifying properties! Check out the new body moisturizers in two new delicious scents from Hempz we just got in below:

Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer - Blushing Grapefruit & Raspberry Creme

How amazing does this sound? Formulated with shea butter, ginseng and other natural extracts, this lotion can help calm, soothe and condition the skin.









Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer - Sweet Strawberry Creme & Brown Sugar 

This moisturizer also comes in a sweet strawberry creme scent.. yum! The attractive hot pink bottle will really make this stand out on your retail display.

An Avocado A Day

Aside from being one of the most delicious, satisfying fruits (that's right.. they are a fruit!), as well as a decadent Mexican dip (I could live off guacamole), avocados are also packed with a slew of beautifying properties! Native to Mexico and Central America, avocados are technically a large berry packed with fatty acids, antioxidants, and an abundance of nutrients that are beautifying. See below for some of the beauty benefits they offer, as well as avocado products we have here at Pure Spa Direct for your spa!

Healthy Hair
Avocados help to revitalize hair to make it shiny and healthy looking. They are also perfect for treating a dry and itchy scalp.




Rub some of our Pure Avocado Oil onto your client's scalps to keep their hair healthy, smooth, and moisturized!







Glowing Skin
Avocados are highly nutritious and filled with vitamins and minerals to get that healthy glow for your clients' skin. They are also filled with fatty acids which are great for moisturizing and maintaining skin elasticity.



Incorporate our Olive and Avocado Therapeutic Hydrating Massage Cream by Amber Products into your next massage treatment! It's perfect for your clients with extra dry skin,






Anti-aging
Filled with anti-oxidants to prevent free radicals which causes aging, avocados are great for reducing wrinkles and maintaining a youthful appearance! You might want to consider using avocado facials as an anti-aging treatment at your spa.


Our Avocado and Grapefruit Facial Mask by Queen Helene is made with a unique gel-clay formula to lift away your client's skin impurities and give them a healthy, youthful glow.








DIY Avocado Face Mask
To get the utmost out of the benefits of an avocado, why not create your own Avocado Mask with these Customized Treatment Facial Masks? All you need is 3 teaspoons of a ripe avocado and 1-2 teaspoons of honey. Mix the two ingredients together, put one of these compressed mask pills in the liquid, and you have your very own avocado face mask for your clients!

April Showers - Spruce Up Your Clients' Moods!

It's finally April which means warm weather is just around the corner.. but let's not forget about those April showers that are coming up. You know, to bring May flowers and what not! Did you know that rain is a crucial element that can actually bring about various health benefits? According to this article I read, researchers at Columbia University conducted a study using negative ion generators (negative ions are essentially odorless, tasteless molecules we inhale in moist climates)  to see their effect on people with chronic depression. The studies concluded that the generators were just as effective as antidepressants are in relieving their depression!

Check out some rainy day products below we offer here at Pure Spa Direct that will be sure to liven up your spa and enhance your clients' well-being on even the gloomiest, rainy days of April!






Blue Ocean Rain Paraffin Oil 

This ocean rain paraffin oil from Amber Products is blended with peppermint and aloe vera - a peaceful and calming aroma your clients will most certainly love to relax with on a rainy day! Great product in order to enhance your spa sessions.














Pure Light Organic Body Spray in Rainforest 

This spray can be used on your body, as well as linens! It can even be sprayed in a room! Make your spa smell delicious with Rainforest - a beautiful, sweet earthy scent infused with European black pine and wild berries. Perfect for retailing (and organic)!














Mood Color Changing Soak Off Gel Polish - Falling Raindrops

Still think your clients are going to be depressed from all of April's showers? Keep track of their mood by using this mood color changing nail polish in the falling raindrops color! Using heat activated technology, this gel nail polish will reflect your customers' mood! The color varies by their body heat and surroundings.

All That Glitters Isn't Just Gold!

We love getting in new products here at Pure Spa Direct. Our latest addition, which is a personal favorite of mine, is the  Cailyn Carnival Glitter! Who doesn't love anything that sparkles?! and the best part is that it doesn't just come in gold! Check out the variety of colors from this newly added line below:

Your customer will love this iridescent glitz they can add on to their makeup routine. But it's just glitter.. in a little jar, you ask, right? What can you do with it?!
What can't you do with it is the bigger question. This glitter can be applied to your customers eyes, lips, nails, and you can even mix it into your favorite lotion as a body shimmer! See exactly what I mean below..

Eyes

Have your customers use our Cailyn Stick It eye applicator over their eyes just before applying their favorite eye shadow. Then dab some glitter on top, and their eye makeup is good to last all night! This stick is also great for the areas around the eyes for that extra sparkle. Customers can sprinkle some glitter on top of their favorite mascara, and they'll be sure to shine.

Lips
Your customers will love adding our glitter on top of their favorite lipstick! It's a fun way to spice up any dull or muted lip shade! We have a variety of shades from Cailyn you can offer your customers which will complement the different shades of glitter. Click here to see!

Nails

Have your customers turn a common clear or muted nail polish into a custom made lacquer shade! Take any nail polish your client wants, throw some glitter on it, and you have a glittery, custom-made nail polish! The Cailyn glitter works great to enhance any manicure treatment!

Body

Do your customers have a favorite body lotion that they can't live without? Encourage them to incorporate this glitter into their body lotion if they're looking for a subtle glow for an evening out on the town! Just mix in a dab of glitter to a few drops of lotion, and they're good to go! The glitter is great for the face as well.
