Short On Space? Check Out This New Tall Trolley!

A common theme I’ve noticed with many clients is storage space or having a small work area. You don’t need to sacrifice supplies or the treatments you’re offering if you don’t have much room to work with.

One of the newer additions to the Pure Spa Direct line up is the DIR Beauty Cart. With a sturdy metal frame and at 36″ high with 4 glass shelves, there is plenty of room for equipment, supplies and even a few retail items! Did I mention it’s also under $100? Durability, convenience and affordable – it’s a great choice for any business!

Vacuum / Spray Facial Machine Troubleshooting – This Common Mistake Can FRY Your Vacuum / Spray Equipment… READ THIS NOW!

Do you use a vacuum/spray unit in your facials? This equipment is so effective to assist in getting a really nice, deep clean for all skin types.

We recently had a client who was having some trouble with her vacuum/spray unit, and it was found that at some point, the unit was set up incorrectly. In talking to the manufacturer’s technician, they told us they see this trouble often, so I wanted to share this important information with our readers!

A vacuum/spray unit is a fairly simple piece of equipment to use, but the trouble is that the setup for the vacuum side and the spray side is the same – usually the same color tubing is attached to either an input for the vacuum (which sucks inward), or an output for the spray (which sprays outward).

If the tubing for the spray bottle is attached to the vacuum input, water or liquid can be sucked into the equipment. Once water has made its way into the innards of the unit, it can cause damage to the motor, and eventually cause the motor to seize or stop working. All it takes is 1 time – even if the error is realized almost immediately – if a small amount of water is pulled into the unit, it could eventually cause damage you can’t see.

Take a look at the photos below – these are the inside of a vacuum/spray unit that has gotten water inside, and stopped working:

In order to prevent this from happening, we strongly suggest marking the hoses and coinciding connector on the machine with color coding to help ensure the equipment is set up properly. Something as simple as, for example, a red dot of nail polish on the hose and a red dot above the corresponding connector for the vacuum and a different color for the spray hose/connector can make all the difference in keeping your equipment working as it should!

Your hands and your equipment are the lifeblood of your business – a quick marking can keep it running properly!

Movember Is Here!

And in it’s peak at that! November is drawing to a close, but does your Spa celebrate the Movember movement? Not familiar? Movember, or No-Shave November, is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches and beards during the month of November to raise awareness of various cancers. I’m sure you see many of your male clients sporting new facial hair that they haven’t had all year to support this wonderful cause. It might be a great time to incorporate specials for your clients during this month!

Need some ideas? How about retail items to support their efforts such as Beard Oil, Conditioner, and even Moustace Wax? We carry Clubman products for men that would be amazing to have on your retail counter during this month. Check out some popular products below:



Clubman Beard Oil is super hydrating and provides a light shine. It also has Macadamia Seed Oil that conditions the beard and skin underneath, as well as prevents irritation due to new hair growth.



They even make beard conditioner! This conditioner by Clubman works as a moisturizer and conditioner for your clients who need extra hydration.








Do you have male clients who are living true to the Movember name, and only growing out a moustache? Make sure their ‘staches are perfectly groomed with our Clubman Moustache Wax!

Summer is Almost Here!

Summer is fast approaching, creating good skin care habits early are essential to maintaining healthy skin. Educating your clients to Use sunscreen daily no matter the weather outside is an extremely important habit that should be preached to daily to all clients coming in for any skincare treatment. Consistent use of sunscreen helps slow down the development of wrinkles while maintaining an even skin tone. By wearing sunscreen every day, you are protecting yourself from UVA and UVB rays.


With so many options out there on the market, this should be an essential part of your client’s skincare routine. Visit Pure Spa Direct today to check out some great products we offer.

BurnOut 18.9% Zinc Oxide Eco Sensitive Skin Sunscreen for Face & Body – Eco Certified. This broad-spectrum SPF 35 clear zinc oxide goes on clean and clear, with no chalky whitening. Provides high protection against sunburn, while also providing a broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection.

For those hard to reach places, the BODY BUDDY Applicator is a non-porous, non-absorbent lotion applicator. It provides the extra reach your clients need to easily apply lotion, sunscreen, and sunless tanner to their own back. Made of soft vinyl, it folds neatly to travel.

Pellon versus Muslin: What You Don’t Know May Be Hurting Clients

When helping clients place orders for waxing strips, the essential questions we always ask are, ‘Pellon or Muslin?’ and ‘Non-woven or woven?’ Unfortunately, so many hair removal technicians are not aware of the differences between the fabrics, so I am here to help enlighten you!

Muslin is the go-to woven fabric for waxing. It’s woven nature makes it the strongest waxing strip you can buy, but it is important to note that it can be too strong for certain areas. Muslin works well with eyebrows, lips and legs, however, I know all too well from personal experience that muslin is too aggressive to use on the bikini area, arms and underarms.
Pellon is, hands-down, the most popular fabric used for waxing strips. It is non-woven, so it pulls the hair out, but is significantly more forgiving than muslin. What makes Pellon tricky to use for certain waxing services is its lack of flexibility. Pellon has the same feeling as construction paper, so it is difficult to maneuver and form to the bendable areas, such as the Bikini area.

A happy medium between Muslin and Pellon is the Epillyss Cotton Waxing Roll. It has the flexibility of Pellon and a strong enough grip that will effectively remove hair without as much pain.
What types of products do you find to be most effective for depilatory services?
