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"!

Head Off Dry Winter Skin Through Retail

In a perfect world, every client would be able to come see you on a regular schedule to address any and all skin concerns. Time and money get in the way of that so having seasonal "go to" retail products can be successful.  Depending on where you live, dry winter skin can be a challenge for many of your clients.

Farmaesthetics Herbal Hydration Complex - Remedy Reserve Mask makes an excellent addition to any retail line up. Aside from being awarded the best "5 Minute Complexion Makeover", this 100% natural mask is great for any skin type. From calming irritations to being touted as a great hangover recovery mask (perfect for holiday party season!) your clients can use this to maintain moisture levels between services and for repairing.

The size and packaging makes it great for gifts for family, friends, coworkers and makes a great travel companion for your on the go clients!

Non Surgical Eye Lift? Sign Me Up!

If I went into a spa for any treatment at all and they told me they had an effective at home device to minimize dark circles crows feet, I'd be all ears!

Are you retailing any effective, portable AND affordable non surgical eye lifting products? This little powerhouse microcurrent is designed for at home use to lift and tone under the eyes. It's the perfect time of year to introduce something like this. Once your clients experience how easy it is and how effective, they'll be buying them for gifts and telling friends about it! It may also be a good idea to let clients know for all their holiday parties and events, they can get a quick lift at home whenever they need. These successfully retail between $150-$200 making it profitable for you, while being budget friendly for clients.

Would your clients want something they could do in between services to help keep them looking their best?

Product Of The Week: CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream

Happy Friday!

I was super excited when I saw this new addition to the Pure Spa Direct line up. I'm a huge fan of magnesium lotions and oils. It has helped me with migraines and muscle cramping, and I recommend it to friends regularly.

Aside from the benefits I have experienced with magneisum, CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream is helpful with a multitude of things including fluid retention, calming nerves and detoxifying the body, insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Harvested from the Dead Sea where the mineral content is at its highest containing 21 minerals, this product is amazing.

You can retail and use this in services making it an easy retail item. Offer it as an add on to a pedicure (medi pedi upgrade!), manicure, massage even as a simple hand/leg massage while a client is getting a facial. Advise they try it a few times to see the results, and have it ready to retail!

See you next Friday, have an amazing weekend!

Your Clients Are On The Go - Sell Them Things to Help!

People are always on the go these days. From family vacation to business trips, airports are rarely empty.

When a client mentions they are getting ready to leave, are currently travelling or just got back from travelling - you have a perfect transition to retail.

If they're getting ready to leave, how are they taking care of their skin while away?
If they're currently travelling, what are they using now as their go to travel plan?
If they just got back, what did they use and were they happy with the results?

Three easy approaches to offer some travel kits, along with some fun options. You can educate them on the importance of keeping up with their routines while away and help them find the best products for their skin concerns. They will be appreciative of your care, which will lead into increased retail sales.

You can opt to go with kits packaged by the manufacturers, make your own kits ahead of time to match your business, or have something like a "choose your own kit". For that kit, pick however many items you select for the from for the client to fill a travel cosmetic bag. You can even tier it with a small, medium and large bag, whatever works best for you!

Here are some of favorites of clients of ours from across the world:




Some client favorites for individual items to create your own:

You can throw whatever type of product or product option, sizes or skin condition you like!

Grab some travel cases to put everything in and start talking to clients!
