Get Festive with Cranberry Products

Tis the season! Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the start of the holiday season has officially begun. But is your spa prepped for the holiday craze? Why not start with cranberry products? Hopefully you and your clients aren’t sick of it by now! Don’t worry, the below products are most certainly not the edible type. Cranberry is great for the skin! Aside from having nearly every vitamin in the alphabet (well, at least A through D!) these delicious berries are also high in anti-oxidants – perfect for hydration and anti-aging. If you haven’t heard of June Jacobs yet, you’re missing out! They are an amazing skincare line, and a few of their products feature the beloved cranberry! I guarantee your clients will fall in love with these products. Their attractive packaging will look amazing on your retail stand – just in time for the holiday season! Check them out below.



To start, get your clients hooked on this delicious smelling Creamy Cranberry Cleanser. This ultra-hydrating cleanser provides moisture to the skin during the cleansing process and imparts a bouquet of fresh cranberry – umm, yummy!



After using the cleanser, be sure to have your clients follow with the Cranberry Hydrating Toner. Enriched with cranberry extracts, this toner will feel refreshing. A couple of sprays is all it takes! I use the June Jacobs Elastin Collagen Toner everyday, but this is becoming my new seasonal favorite!



Did I mention their products are paraben and preservative free? To complete the set, the Cranberry Pomegranate Moisture Masque is definitely a client favorite! This luxurious masque is combined with extracts of shea butter and sunflower seed oil to replenish the skin.






Be sure to stock up on these items, as I guarantee they will be selling out fast come December. You can even create your own retail package to include all 3 items!

Live, Love, Wine…Wax

Combination two of our favorite things? Wine and wax? Don’t mind if we do!

ItalWax makes this incredible soft Wine Flex Wax that has been flying off the shelves! This medium density wax with Titanium Dioxide and the intense purple color is perfectly visible on the skin. It contains grape extract which is known for its moisturizing properties. Specially created to remove all hairs, even very short ones, Wine Flex Wax is extremely effective.

Flex Soft Wax is an innovative product by ItalWax. Its unique formula is a perfect mix of natural resins with distinctive components. ItalWax Flex is characterized by very high plasticity when applied in a thin layer with a spatula on large surfaces. ItalWax Flex wax forms a thin film on the skin, which grabs all the hairs and guarantees firm adhesion with the waxing strip. Waxing with ItalWax Flex wax is less painful for the client, comparing to classic soft waxes because Flex doesn9t adhere to the skin.

Benefits of Flex Wax:

  • FLEX Wax doesn9t leave a sticky feeling on the skin
  • FLEX Wax removes 100% of hairs without breaking them
  • FLEX Wax is suitable for all hair types


Waxing procedure for Flex Soft Wax ItalWax:

  1. Preheat the wax can in the professional heater to 102°F-104°F.
  2. Treat the depilation area with a pre-wax lotion ItalWax.
  3. Dip the wooden spatula in the wax and then apply it to the treated area in the direction of the hair growth.
  4. Apply the strip while keeping the end of the strip in a wax-free area.
  5. Tightly press the strip to the skin.
  6. While holding the free end of the strip, remove the strip with a fast movement in the direction opposite to the hair growth and parallel to the skin.
  7. Repeat the procedure on the next area. Do not apply wax on the same area more than twice.
  8. On completion of the procedure remove any wax residue with an after-wax oily lotion ItalWax.

Did Someone Say Chocolate…..Wax??

The new Starpil Chocolate Roll-On wax is amazing! Suitable for all skin types, this wax is enriched with cocoa, along with an exceptional combination of pine resins, to ensure effective hair removal.

Starpil’s Roll-On system is very hygienic, there’s no handling of wax, also no dripping or sticky mess. It’s a comfortable method of waxing applied at just the right temperature. Once finished, you easily dispose the cartridge – no need to waist time and money buying additional rollers heads or roller sanitizing products.

The resins in our roll-ons enable them to be used at higher temperatures than low melting point waxes. The heat opens the pores also, but because the wax is applied much thinner, the resins cool almost immediately without producing a burning sensation. The product is then easily removed using hair removal strips. The ingredients in our Roll-Ons are formulated to delay hair growth and leave skin moisturized and soft.

Product Benefits:

  • Easy speedy application
  • Applies quick and easy
  • No dripping of wax or sticky mess
  • No need to buy roller cleaning kits
  • Ideal for personal waxing
  • 110 gram / 3.7 oz. Cartridge X 20 Cartridges = 1 Case

June Jacob’s Ultra-Light Citrus Moisturizer – Perfect for Oily Skin Facials!

Of all the steps in my daily facial routine, I hate applying moisturizer the most. I have oily skin, and moisturizers always felt heavy and greasy on me. For years, I skipped this vital step, but now as I quickly approach 30, I know I need to moisturize more than ever.

I can’t be the only one who doesn’t like to apply moisturizer to my face! Some of your clients have oily skin too, and I bet they cringe a little inside when you let them know you are going to moisturize their face. They may even just stare blankly at you and absent-mindedly nod while you instruct them on how important it is to keep your face well moisturized. Then, while they are just staring off into space, you can blow their minds (and snap them back into reality!) by applying June Jacob’s Ultra-Light Citrus Moisturizer.
This hydrating lotion is so light and airy, it absorbs almost immediately, and leaves behind fresh, moisturized skin, instead of a greasy mess. The light citrus scent is good enough to eat (although I don’t recommend doing so – I imagine it doesn’t taste nearly as good as it smells!). Best of all, my skin stays soft and smooth all day, without feeling heavy, clogged, or greasy!

Like most of the June Jacobs Spa Collection, this moisturizer features a special blend of white, green, and red teas, plus pomegranate, goji berry, and grapeseed extract to help neutralize free radicals and combat signs of premature aging. The formula is paraben and preservative-free, and features the moisturizing powerhouse Hyaluraonic Acid.
Your oily-faced clients will be so grateful for your finding a usable moisturizer for them they will never see another esthetician for a facial again! Aside from using it in your oily-skin facials, offer it as a retail product for your clients to purchase. Once they feel the fluffy softness and almost immediate absorption, they won’t want to use any other moisturizer!

Protect Your Investment: Caring for Massage Linens

One of the most important responsibilities you have as a massage therapist is to care for your massage table linens. Linens covering massage tables are unique in their usage, since aside from just covering and protecting your bed, they are splashed and stained with oil on a regular basis. And we all know how much fun it is to remove oil stains!

As a business owner, you want to ensure that you are getting the best wear out of your linens. But how do you effectively remove the stains and prolong the life of your sheets? Follow the below tips to get the most out of your massage linens:

Wash Daily
I know, laundry is not my favorite task either, but in order to effectively remove oil stains from massage table linens, washing daily is crucial. Massage oil often goes rancid quickly, which sets the stain in further, and also makes your linens smell like French Fries after a while…gross! If you are unable to wash daily, store your unwashed linens in black plastic bags (like garbage bags), sealed against air and light to keep any oil residue from going rancid.

Pro Tip: Keep hand towels close by while performing a massage or body treatment to avoid using your linens to wipe off excess oil!

Pre-Soak Stains
As soon as your client leaves your treatment room, inspect your sheets for oil stains (it is easier to check while they are still on the table, rather than once they are bundled up ready to be washed). Treat any stains you find immediately using either your regular linen detergent or a degreaser (such as Dawn dish soap).

Laundry Tips
For badly stained linens, wash twice to remove the oil stains. Wash with warm (not hot) water to avoid setting in stains, and rinse in cold water. If you have stubborn stains, you may want to consider adding bleach or a non-chlorine bleach additive in the second washing to rid the remaining oil from the linens. Our favorite detergent is the Lotus Touch Always Fresh Detergent, which is a professional-strength, biodegradable detergent that has be specifically formulated to break down massage oil stains. This detergent is great for use as a pre-soak for those stubborn stains as well!

Drying Tips
Never dry your sheets in the dryer unless you are sure all oil has been removed! Drying the oil not only sets the stain, making it even more difficult to remove, but it can also be a fire hazard! When drying, throw 2-3 tennis balls in the dryer with your sheets – this will fluff them up and help them dry more evenly. If possible, line dry your sheets to extend their life.
