Offer Customized Facial Treatments

Do you customize your facials for your clients? We are seeing so many estheticians putting customized

facials on their menus lately, and for good reason! Your clients want to ensure their skin is looking its best, and there is not a one-size-fits-all facial that will make every client glow. Without bringing in a huge skincare line, how can you customize facials?

A great way is to use a Lucas Championierre Pulveriser to infuse herbs or toner, based on your client’s skin type, into their skin! The Lucas Pulverizer is used to diffuse vitamins, botanicals, infused waters, lotions, and toners deeper into the pores by pulverizing the molecular structure into a delicate mist. The cool pulverized mist penetrates deeper, micro massages and deep cleans the pores. It is widely used in Europe by most Beauty Therapists.

The benefits of the Lucas Championniere include:

  • Assists in the hydration of the epidermis
  • Aids in maintaining the skin’s suppleness
  • Excellent in the treatment of dehydrated, mature, and dry skin
  • Suitable for use on sensitive skins
  • Beneficial in the treatment of oily skin

The Lucas Championniere is a handheld appliance, hence allowing it to be easily transported from treatment room to treatment room and an ideal space-saving addition to any salon/spa. An alternative to traditional facial steamers and even more suitable for clients who have an aversion to the use of hot steam or who have damaged capillaries.

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!

Wax Spotlight: Lycon LycoJet Lavender Wax

Lycon is one of our best selling wax brands, imported from Australia and used widely across the world! It’s formulated with the finest resins, pure beeswax, and aromatherapy/natural plant oils.

Lycon’s waxes are low temperature, super pliable, and gentle! They provide a nurturing and skin conditioning treatment for extra client comfort on even the most sensitive skin!

The Lycon LycoJet Lavender Wax is extremely popular!

LycoJet is applied thinner than most other hot waxes making it a wax choice that won’t break the bank.

This low-temperature wax, for the face and body, is pliable, strong, and virtually painless… what more could you want out of a wax, right? The same magical performance as the Lycon hot wax range, but Lycojet can be used much thinner, so is more economical.

It shrink-wraps and removes hair as short as 1mm. This extra-gentle wax can be re-applied on just waxed skin, without discomfort or irritation. High-performance LycoJet is effective for all waxing and a MUST for short stubborn hair that hot waxes on occasion can miss. Create the ultimate hair-removing duo by pairing it with your favorite Hot Wax!

The result is smoother, hair-free skin for longer… completely eliminates the need to tweeze!

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.

What’s the best Retail for Sensitive Skin?

With so many products out there, it’s important to have the best products and ingredients for your clients. Take a look at our best sellers for all skin types, especially sensitive skin!

Alchimie Forever – Gentle Cream Cleanser

This cleanser is hands down, my favorite product!

Benefits:

  • Removes makeup, including eye makeup
  • Nourishes and softens the skin
  • Reduces the appearance of redness
  • Calms sensitivity
It is truly incredible and comes highly recommended by me. It’s gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, even those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

The Sensitive Mask is an excellent choice for sensitive and veined skin.
What is “Sericin” and why is it so great?
Dr. Temt Laboratories has discovered a way to use Sericin as an active ingredient for advanced skincare. Studies have demonstrated that Sericin has a strong affinity to keratin. It forms a moisturizing, long-wearing, protective, anti-wrinkle film on the skin’s surface imparting an immediate, long-lasting, smooth, silky feeling.
The skin’s affinity to Sericin creates a protective silky layer, leaving the skin supple and firm. Sericin also binds with water to help regulate the moisture balance of the skin. It diminishes the appearance of fine lines and leaves the skin feeling smooth. Dr. Temt’s Sericin line is ideal for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Hempz Sensitive Skin Calming Herbal Body Wash is enriched with 100% Pure Natural Hemp Seed Oil and blended with Hempz signature Natural Calming Oatmeal Complex to help comfort, calm and relieve dry skin so it looks and feels healthier.
This makes a great retail product for the holiday season, by wrapping it in a package with a Body Brush!

I Have a Crush on Cotton Candy Bikini Wax

I am such a sucker for deliciously scented depilatory wax! That’s why I went nuts when I saw that Plum Smooth now has a Cotton Candy Strip Wax for sweetly scented hair removal!
I think Katy Perry would LOVE this wax! 😉

Strip Wax Never
Smelled So Good!

The new Plum Smooth Strip Wax in Cotton Candy scent is an all-purpose depilatory wax that can be used for facial, body, or bikini waxing services.

Beeswax, rosin, and titanium dioxide are swirled together with mica to create a silky, YUMMY smelling strip wax that9s perfect for all hair types. Pink color looks like cotton candy!
