Retail Bargains, For You And Your Clients!

I’m always on the lookout for bargains, everywhere. I’m the one who always checks the unit price before buying things. This may seem an odd thing to be excited about, but we just added retail displays of nail clippers that are super cost effective.

These nail clippers are an awesome point of purchase item, place the display next to the register and watch em go!

Stainless Steel Toenail Clippers Display / 24 Clippers by Satin Edge
***these work out to be $.83 a piece

Stainless Steel Nail Clippers Display / 24 Clippers by Satin Edge
***these are a whopping $.51 a piece!!!

Stainless Steel Non-Slip Slant Tip Tweezer Display / 48 Tweezers by Satin Edge
***these are $.80 a piece!

I know I am always losing my clippers and tweezers to the house gnome who likes to steal any small implement. Even if I know I have one, if there’s a display near the checkout, I tend to grab a one just to be safe. Your clients may be the same!

Give Your Clients a Pick Me Up With Rosemary Essential Oil

Invigorating, Refreshing, and Stimulating are the first three words that come to mind when thinking of Rosemary Essential Oil. Rosemary has a stimulating effect on the central nervous system and is often used as a a key ingredient in the “Wake Up” or “Pick Me Up” blends of aromatherapy products. With summer slowly approaching your clients are going to start looking for exactly that – A “Pick Me Up” for their lazy summer days! You can easily incorporate Rosemary Essential Oil into your massage services to help ease muscle tension, or maybe in a scalp massage to awaken the senses and stimulate hair growth.

Rosemary essential oil is wonderful for your skin, it helps tone and removes dryness and is an excellent treatment for oily skin, acne, hair, or for promoting hair growth.

Incorporate Rosemary Essential Oil into these services:

Rosemary Essential Oil is also great to include in Hand Made Soaps and diffused within your treatment rooms.

Compressed or Not Compressed… That is the Question (when it comes to sponges!)

Why choose compressed sponges over non-compressed sponges or vice versa? It is all a matter of preference, but we have found MOST estheticians prefer compressed (they outsell 9 to 1).

I like them for the same reason kids like compressed sponges… it is super cool when you put them in water and they expand! But estheticians typically prefer them for a more practical reason… storage space. Compressed sponges take up about 1/8 the storage space of non-compressed sponges. A 100 pack of compressed sponges easily fits in a trolley drawer.

Why waste storage space? Try compressed sponges today! The cost is about the same, they are fun to watch expand, they use 1/8 the storage space, and they function exactly the same as non-compressed sponges!
We do have dozens of different choices (colors, count, etc.), but these are our most popular:

  • 87% of individuals view massage as being beneficial to overall health and wellness.

  • 89% of consumers surveyed believe that massage can be effective in reducing pain; with 29% of respondents admitting they have used massage therapy for pain relief.


What is even more exciting is that traditional medical care providersare recommending massage therapy as a viable care option for many healthrelated issues!!!
According to the study
  • 50% of respondents indicated that they were encouraged by their doctor to receive a massage.
  • 61% of respondents said their physician has recommended they get a massage.
Products such as the Thumper Maxi Pro Massager are helping massage therapists to effectively enhance an already beneficial massage by increasing circulation and releasing muscle tension.
The industry has come a long way in gaining respect andlegitimacy from both medical professionals and the general public.
