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?

Menu Spotlight: Back Acne Be Gone!!!

Since this is the season of dare to bare, people want their skin as flawless as possible without having to spend a fortune. If you have clients with back acne, this is a great, affordable (yet cost AND time effective for your business!) treatment to test out in your Summer menu.

Back Masque - think of a clever name to fit your menu theme/style!

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of marine fango with 4-6 drops of eucalyptus oil. Prep your bed for a body treatment, placing a protective covering on. Place a heating pad set on low on the table, so that it will line up under the client's back area. Spread a layer of the masque on to a disposable pad, and place on the heating pad. You can also apply the masque to the client's back with a body brush, and have them lie down on the disposable pad and heating pad.

If you've up sold the client into services to be done at the same time, begin those will the client is laying on the masque.

Once the other services have been completed, remove the back masque with warm, damp towels.

Take a look at some information and ideas for add on treatments to up sell, here.

Another Excuse to Indulge in Chocolate!


As if we need a reason, I'm sure most (who am I kidding - most likely ALL) of your clients are chocolate aficionados. Countless studies have shown that chocolate, specifically cocoa flavanol, can help to improve skin. It is known to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as signs of aging in areas around the eyes. It increases hydration levels and skin elasticity. With Valentine's Day approaching, have you thought about adding any chocolate treatments into your spa service menu? Why not start with our Spa Pantry Cocoa Powder to create a Chocolate Indulgence Mask for your clients!
  • Simply Mix the Cocoa powder with coconut oil, and slightly heat until it's all blended together. 
  • Add honey, and apply as a mask during your facial services.
  • Leave on your client's face for ten to twenty minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water and a towel or sponge.
Your clients will love this indulgent service. It not only smells amazing, but the anti-aging benefits will have them coming back for more!

Trending Now - Cactus

More and more spas across the country have been incorporating the awesome anti aging power of the cactus into their treatment menu.  Clients no longer need to travel out West to seek out desert themed treatments!

Add in some flute music to round out the experience!

Need help finding the perfect fit, give us a call!

What a Great Idea!

It's always the simplest ideas that are usually the best. Well, disposable sleeves for eyeglass frames is one such idea. Since I don't wear glasses this would have never crossed my mind, but when I saw how many orders we had for it last week I just thought it was brilliant... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Soft'nStyle - Disposable Eyeglass Sleeves HERE!

June is National Migraine Awareness Month!

June is National Migraine Awareness Month and as a migraine sufferer, having a business or therapist that has the right tools to help, is a lifesaver!

From the throbbing head pain, stiff/sore neck, and nausea to name are just some of the most common headache issues that you can help your clients with.

Here are a few of our best selling headache and migraine relief items to help you alleviate your clients pain!

Miracle Migraine Aromatherapy - I use one of these blends and it worked so well that I carry it in my bag along with my Biofreeze roll on. You never know when a migraine will hit so be sure to retail these!

Core Headache Ice Pillow - another item I use when any type of headache hits. The unique design allows the cold to hit right under the base of the skull!

Therapearl Hot & Cold - Eye-ssential Pack / Blue

Cold Stones and Hot Stones - ask your clients what helps them! For me, cold always helps but for some, heat could do the trick!

Ginger or Peppermint Tea for nausea

Epsom Salt - sometimes a hot bath with epsom salts can calm everything down!

Advertising migraine specials in June is a great way to bring in new clients, have clients try something new and give you the opportunity to have a huge impact on your clients life, that they may not have known you could help with!

Diamonds Are Forever - So Is Your Skin

It's never too early to be thinking about your next menu change. The holiday season will be gone in a flash, before you know it the stores will be decorated for Valentine's Day. Here is a fun mask designed to reveal your best skin! Hydrating, anti aging and can be used on the body and face.

Diamond In The Rough

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of shea butter,1 1/2 tablespoons of Rose Hip Powder and 10 drops of rose essential oil. Place 1/2 teaspoon of this into a small rubber mixing bowl (this will be the facial mask).

In another rubber mixing bowl, add 1 tablespoon corn meal and 2 tablespoons of water and mix well (this will be the body scrub/mask).

Place the bowls into a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or stainless steel bowl of hot water.

Prepare to start with dry brushing (our best selling for service and retail are here!) the client's skin, starting at the feet and working up. Remove the body scrub/mask from the warmer - check the temp before applying to your client! Apply the scrub/mask, paying extra attention to any dry areas. Wrap the client in plastic sheeting, cover with a thermal blanket and leave on for 15- 20 minutes.

During this time, cleanse the client's face, remove the facial mask from the warmer and apply to the decollete and face, massaging the product in.

Remove the blanket, plastic and escort the client to the shower (unless you have a vichy shower to make it even easier!), or dry brush the skin again to remove excess product and use warm moist towels to clean up.

Finish up with a full body moisturizer (the Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23, and Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Complex are best sellers across the world!) and apply sunscreen to the face.

You can offer add ons like Eco Fin, Scalp Massage/Treatments, Anti Aging under eye treatments and more!

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 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.

Are Your Clients Hurting?

Drastic statement, I know. However drastic it sounds, is it true? When clients are coming in for abrasive type treatments such as microdermabrasion, laser treatments or peels, their skin tends to be extra sensitive afterwards. Are you using and offering calming products for these clients?

Having effective and affordable products to offer clients to help ease irritation/sensitivity will be a big hit.

Here are some facialist favorites that are always flying out of the warehouse, which ones have you tried?

Alchimie Forever Afterlase Soothing Body Milk
Alchimie Forever Gentle Cream Cleanser
Control Corrective - Sensitive Skin Cleansing Milk
Control Corrective - Sulfur Calming Mask
Control Corrective - Sensitive Skin Tonic With Aloe
Control Corrective - Botanical Soothing Cream SPF30
Ayur-Medic Skincare Calming

Take a look at the sample packs from Control Corrective; a great way to introduce this amazing line to your clients!

Money With Milk And Honey!

September is National Honey Month! That makes now the perfect time to start thinking about and bringing in products to cash in (literally!) on treatments that focus on honey. Here is a great body treatment that generally sells for $100-125 and costs you less than $5.00 per treatment - my type of math!

Milk & Honey Body Treatment - this is excellent for moisturizing dehydrated skin, stress relief, calming of the skin and more!

In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of honey powder with 1 tablespoon of coconut powder and mix well. Add in 2 drops each of chamomile essential oil and jasmine essential oil. Mix well and place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or stainless steel bowl filled with hot water.  Apply the scrub as you normally perform your body treatments.

If you have a hydrotherapy tub, after removing the scrub is an excellent time for a soak! Mix 1 tablespoon of buttermilk powder to 2 cups of hot water followed by 5 drops of chamomile essential oil. When filling the hydrotherapy tub, tilt the bowl slightly, hold under the faucet and slowly pour the mixture into the tub (go slow to avoid clumping!)

After the scrub and soak, finish off with this moisturizer to lock in all of the wonderful moisture!

Mix 2 teaspoons of wheatgerm oil with 2 drops of chamomile essential oil. Massage the oil into the skin and wipe off any excess oil to finish.

You can create full body packages centered around honey as well! You can use things like Cuccio Naturale Lyte Ultra-Sheer Body Butter - Honey & Soy Milk in nail services and massage!

Be sure to have retail items to go with the treatments, here are some client favorites:

Cuccio Naturale Butter Babies Display Tower Milk & Honey
Soy Crackle Candle - Honey Spice
Cuccio Naturalé Milk & Honey Daily Skin Polisher
Milk & Honey Aqua Leaves
CUCCIO NATURALE Cuticle Conditioning Butter Sticks Milk & Honey


Don't forget to offer teas, honey and snacks!

Nature Valley Granola Bars, Oats’n Honey Cereal
Kashi TLC Chewy Granola Bars, Honey Almond Flax
Smucker's Honey, Single Serving Packs

Mud - Making The World A Better Place One Person At A Time!

Pretty drastic statement there, right?!?

It's the truth, in a way :) When we look our best, we feel our best which in turn tends to make us happier people. Happy people make the world a better place - here's where the mud comes in!

I'm sure you've noticed over the last few years, the natural movement is still growing. Clients are concerned about ingredients and the chemicals going in or on their bodies. Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud is a 100% natural mud that happens to be the most mineral rich mud on the market today!

You can use the Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud in facials, body wraps and even nail services! It is great for exfoliating and detoxifying the skin - it's gentle enough where it does not dry out the skin either! This is is especially important for clients with sensitive skin!

The lavender peppermint blends have been flying out of the warehouse this month! It smells wonderful and the peppermint adds the slightest tingling feeling that is amazing! As an added bonus, they make retail sized muds and soaps that are also great for gifts, packages and giveaways!

Massage For Allergies

With the change in seasons and sometimes chaotic weather changes, many people suffer from allergies. From itchy eyes and sneezing to headaches and full body aches, allergies can make people all around miserable.

Are you marketing your massage services to allergy sufferers? Massage is excellent for helping people deal with their allergy symptoms yet most people aren't aware of this! This is where we as massage therapists come in to educate them!

Massage is excellent at treating headaches, body pains, it boost circulation and reduce stress. It's a big circle, the symptoms are stressing the client out which is making them focus on the symptoms, making them worse. If you calm the client while easing their symptoms, the body can focus on dealing with the histamines.

Something as simple as posting a brochure or sign about your allergy relieving treatment will have clients calling to get their session in asap!

Here are some awesome relaxing and clearing essential oils to incorporate into the treatment:

Essential Oil Blend - Clear the Air
Eucalyptus Oils
Peppermint Essential Oil
Lavender Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil

Be creative and blend up your own mixes to add into your favorite carrier oil for a clearing facial massage!

Be sure to have extra bottles of essential oils on hand to retail to your clients!

Also, check out the Aroma Pen...perfect to retail with the oils for your clients to have instant on-the-go relief!

Go Bananas with Banana Spa Products for Spring!

Aside from being super delicious and one of my favorite fruits, did you know that bananas are a beautifying food? A recent article I read claims that bananas help to hydrate cells and keep the skin smooth and moisturized due to their high potassium content. They also contain significant amounts of vitamin C and B6, which helps to maintain skin elasticity and act as a natural moisturizer. With the warmer months coming up, you might want to try incorporating a fun new treatment in your spa! 

We have a variety of banana products here are Pure Spa Direct that I love! Check below for some of my favorites...






Check out this banana mask, which can be a great way to add variety to your normal facial menu. It's loaded with skin nourishing banana extract to help maintain smooth skin. This is a very unique mask that will sweeten up any facial treatment!










With the warmer months coming up, why not change up the soap you're currently using in your spa's bathroom to something seasonal? This liquid hand soap by Pure and Basic in wild banana and vanilla is a delicious and aromatic summer scent that your clients will love! It's also paraben free!








Are you looking for a fun way to change the decor in your spa? This banana leaf runner is a great way to showcase your merchandise to customers and make it seem like they're in the tropics! It's also great for displaying treatment products, refreshments, or other amenities your spa has.






Yellow is a great nail polish color for spring and summer. Our Jessica Custom Nail Color Polish in Banana Peel is a lovely creamy yellow your customers will love! This polish is meant for natural nails and is completely free of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. It's also eco-friendly, vitamin enriched for maximum conditioning, and contains UVA/UVB to protect nails from the sun's damaging rays.. all pluses in my book!

Hand-TASTIC! Great Add-On Treatment for ALL of Your Clients

Clients complaining about ashy and dry hands? Is all the lotion and Vaseline not working? 


Beautiful, well-kept and delicate hands are important. Reminding your clients that their hands tell a number of things about who they are is important! No matter how firm the face, hands can give away their true age! Treat your clients' hands to some TLC by using a hand mask to keep their paws in perfect condition.

If they think that by washing, cleansing and moisturizing their hands is all that they can do to pamper them, remind them to think again! Your client's hands are also as exposed to heat, cold and water as their face is.  A hand treatment mask will  help them pamper our hands a little more! And no need to worry about consuming too much time....applying hand treatment masks is also an easy task!

Allow Pure Spa Direct to help you nourish your clients' hands with the Exfoliating Hand Masque / 10 Pack by uQ you and they will be sure to just LOVE! This is a GREAT add-on treatment to increase your bottom line - apply it during a facial mask, pedicure mask, or at the end of a massage - the opportunities are endless, and your clients will be even happier with the results you provide them!
