"Wiped-Out" - Intrinsics Wipes, That Is...


Intrinsics Wipes are "cleaning" up this week at Pure Spa! Especially popular have been the 4"x4" Esthetic and Cotton Wipes. My shipping team and I are "wiped" out from shipping so many cases. These wipes have multiple uses from cleansing and exfoliating to applying product to the skin.... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Intrinsics Wipes selection HERE!

The Secret's Out on Liquid Gold: Moroccan Argan Oil... Amazing for Skin, Hair and Nails

In a previous blog (Hyaluronic Acid - Nature's Face Lift!), I discussed the amazing benefits of hyaluraonic acid, and what this ingredient means for your client's skin. I have found another ingredient that is equally as amazing: Argan Oil!

This oil, which is hand-pressed by Berber women in Morocco, is often referred to as "liquid gold." This beauty secret has been used by Moroccan women for centuries. It has incredible benefits for the skin, hair, and nails. Extremely high in Vitamin E, Argan oil also contains both Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids. These unsaturated fatty acids work wonders to improve hair and nail strength. Argan Oil also contains phyosterols, which helps promote new collagen production, reduce redness, and improves elasticity.

Benefits for Hair
  • Improves Elasticity
  • Repairs Split Ends
  • Naturally Hydrating
  • Smoothes, without weighing down
  • Restores Luster and Shine




Benefits for Skin
  • Moisturizes without clogging pores
  • Helps restore Natural pH of Skin
  • Regulates sebum to reduce oiliness
  • Neutralizes free radicals
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines

The only hair-styling product I use is Marrakesh Oil, which is a blend of Moroccan Argan Oil and Hemp Seed Oil. This light-weight oil moisturizes my hair, makes it beautifully shiny and manageable, and smells delicious! This is a great product to use in your salon, and retail to your clients! Everyone will be thrilled with the results!

Extended Vacation's Moroccan Mineral Signature Tanning Mist also features Moroccan Argan Oil. This tanning mist was specially formulated with many luxurious emollients to moisturize the skin while giving it a beautiful glow. For all you spray-tanners out there, look no further than Moroccan Mineral Signature Tanning Mist!

The Evolution of a Brush: From Bone Picks to Gemstones with the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush!

I'm too sexy for my brush...
For as long as people have had hair, we have needed some way to tame the tangles, free the knots, and show off our own personal style. Hair brushes have been around for thousands of years, but thanks to evolution, they have transformed from being simple bone or shell picks, to more modern and ergonomic styling tools.

For example, Pure Spa Direct recently added the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush to our ever-expanding product selection. After reading the description of this brush, I couldn't resist and had to purchase one instantly. The Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush has crushed Tourmaline gemstones infused within the barrel of the brush that emit negative ions to SMOOTH HAIR, ADD SHINE and ELIMINATE FRIZZ! Yes, this brush is infused with GEMSTONES!!!

As an end-user, I have noticed visible results to the appearance of my hair when I use this brush during my blow outs. As professionals, having a brush that works miracles to bring structure to a client's unruly mop is a necessity! That is why I recommend that every hair salon ditches their antique brushes and adds the Thermal Tourmaline Round Brush to their salon stations and retail offerings.

Have you had the chance to try this amazing brush yet?

Relax Clients and Increase Profits with No Scream Cream

No matter how many times I get waxed, it never gets easier. A common belief is that the more consistently one waxes, the less painful it will become. Not so for myself nor countless other women I know. Getting my arms waxed seems to be the most excruciating. Before every pull, my body tenses, my stomach clenches, I brace for impact (or retract!), and probably end up experiencing more pain than I would have if I was relaxed.

Enter the RELAX & WAX No Scream Cream / 1 oz. One of the best ways to endear yourself to your clients is to make their depilatory experience as comfortable as possible and the No Scream Cream can help you achieve that. Formulated with the local anesthetic Benzocaine, this product will actually numb the skin that is being waxed. Simply apply the cream to the treatment area about 30-45 minutes before the depilatory service.

A great way to introduce this product to your clients
Yeeeoooowch!
is to advise that they arrive at their service about 30 minutes early and then let them use it for the first time as gratis. Once they see and feel how well the No Scream Cream works, you can offer it as retail upon checkout! Clients will appreciate that you care about their experience and thus reward with greater profits.
