Why I love Brazilian Strawberry Flexxx Wax by Mancine


"Unicorn Wax"
I never thought a wax
this good existed!
Finding the perfect wax for myself has become quite the research journey.  I have tried countless numbers of wax brands and formulas available here at PureSpa.com - from all over the world to review.  My quest has always been to find something that does not tear up my fragile skin, feels comfortable, is low temperature, smells nice and has a soft, creamy texture (not stringy), that is easily malleable for extra control and detail. For years I thought I was seeking the unicorn of waxes because those qualities did not seem to exist in one product or brand.  Most of the waxes I tried hurt like hell, ripped my hair (didn't grab the root), were too strong or left heat irritation on my skin because I could not get the temperature right.
Blow away your clients...
Let them experience Mancine

This all changed two months ago when I took home a giant tub of Mancine Brazilian Strawberry Ultra Flexxx.  I admit, I expected nothing from this wax and was reasonably satisfied with my Ciripil Vegetal wax for the last few years. I wanted to try Brazilian Strawberry simply because spas and salons from across the country called us up at Pure Spa constantly RAVING about it and demanding it.  SO my curiosity led the quest, and my waxing trial began.  I plopped the giant 2.2 lb tub into my Spa Masters Double Wax Warmer. Now, I was not very optimistic about it heating evenly because the tub is considerably taller than a traditional wax can.  I flipped on the unit, set it to medium heat and waited about 25 minutes.  The wax had warmed to a comfortable temperature and when I stirred it up. I was surprised at it's ultra creamy, luscious texture.  It also had the most delicious scent... it was light and not overwhelming. It was like fresh strawberries collided with cotton candy... it looked and smelled amazing I was dying to get started.

Here is what I love the best for bikini and leg waxing:

1) Ultra low melting point means it's ready to go without having to be the temperature of the sun.
2) Has a unique plastic like texture that has a powerful grip WITHOUT cringing in pain.
3) It was astonishingly comfortable for removing hair on ultra sensitive areas.
4) Gentle formula reduced redness - I had none! This was an absolute first for me.
5) Contains hypo-allergenic properties.
6) Pampering texture. Super easy to manipulate.
7) Smells freaking delicious. Does not smell like air freshener strawberry... It smells luxurious!
8) A little wax goes a long way. Efficiency is a great plus for maximizing profits!
9) No bumps, lumps or irritation was visible post bikini and leg wax. That is amazing for my fragile skin.
10) No stringy mess! Gosh I love not leaving a stringy wax trail all over my warmer & floor!

Just a note; I DID use the Mancine Pre-Wax Oil too.  Also superb, The Mancine Ultimate Finish Post Wax Oil  was exceptionally good and removing any tiny clinging wax bits at lightening speed!

Mancine is sold exclusively to licensed estheticians, waxing centers, salons & day spa owners and licensed cosmetologists.

Nail Sale - Get More Moola From Your Manicures

The nail care market has been pretty much recession proof. Despite cutbacks in many other areas of the industry, ladies love their nails, and the love has no signs of stopping.

Don't Be afraid to retail...
Your Clients will APPRECIATE the
Improvement they see!
So why aren't more salons and spas that perform nail services retailing hand and nail care? Retailing products to your nail clients should be viewed as an additional profit center for your business. Go into any drugstore, Target or supermarket and you will see that there are HUNDREDS of home nail care products to choose from. Why not offer a select few in your own salon or spa?  Offering clients something to help keep their nails, gels and hands looking great is an easy sale that truly benefits the client and adds to your bottom line.  Chances are if they are not buying essential nail products from you, they will from somewhere else.

Nail spa owner Dean said, "Everyone understands nail & cuticle oil. It's the easiest thing to retail with a gel manicures.  We explain to clients that a quick application keeps your manicure looking fresh and the cuticle healthy ... it's a no brainer, who doesn't want that?"


Another nail tech told me, "I always encourage clients to purchase a good cuticle oil.  It keeps the nail smooth while maintaining that "just manicured" look. As for my gel clients, regular use of a conditioning oil can help prevent lifting."

My manicure was 6 days old
In this Pic. Nail Oil really RULES!
I use it religiously!
I purchased a superb nail oil from my nail tech, and I think about her (and the lovely spa) every time I apply it - really!  It makes me think about booking my next appointment, and it makes me grateful for her suggestion. Using it really does make a positive and noticeable difference in how my manicures look and last.

Here are some retail products you can purchase at Pure Spa & retail in your Spa / Salon:

Excellent Winter Pedicure Color - Essie's New "Size Matters" - Makes the Cut

Quick office shot of my Size Matters Pedi
I am SOOOOO burned out on deep black, brown and blue polishes for 2011.  I have gone through 3 bottles of Essie Velvet Voyeur,   Luxedo & countless other gothy-girl colors and I am over them... for now.   I recently asked a local NYC nail salon owner what new colors are in demand this holiday season, and that's when I met Size Matters.  At the Spa where I get my nails done, this was hands down, the most wanted color... it was crazy!!  There were not enough bottles to go around!  I can totally see why, this is a refreshing take on holiday red.  Essie's Size Matters is a deep, ruby red that looks festive and sexy... a great way to rev up ye ole holiday spirit.
