November

Novembers news, a week early!

Well I didn't want to send out the November news in October, however I received an email this morning which made me think I'd best get my skates on.

If you've already been in this month you will have seen the Dermalogica® gift sets. This morning I received an email from them informing me that the Body Buffing kit is now out of stock. Luckily I had just had a delivery of seven on Tuesday, so I have them left but after that, they are gone. So if you want one they are £15.50 and are worth £36.45, which is probably why everyone went a bit mad for them.   

The other sets are;

Brightening Duo
Full sizes of Daily Microfoliant & Pre Cleanse 150 ml
£53.25
VALUE = £76.10
(Which means you are paying only £11.50 for your Pre Cleanse instead of £34.35)

Power Rescue Masque Trio
Limited edition sizes (38ml) of Charcoal Rescue Masque, Multi Vitamin Power Recovery Masque & Skin Hydrating Masque.
£43.25
VALUE = £59.52
(Which means you are saving 30%)

Skin Perfecting Set
Full sizes of Skin perfect primer 22ml & Overnight Repair Serum 15ml
£67.60
VALUE = £97.20
(Which means you are paying £9.20 instead of £38.80 for your primer.)

And last, but not least, the Clear Start Set
Includes travel sizes of Foaming Wash 50 ml, Daytime treatment 15ml and Overnight Treatment 15ml.
£13.70

 

Now on to (sorry about the next word) Christmas. And the launch of a new treatment.


I really didn't want to type it at this point in the year, but as there are now products selling out that would have formed part of the November/December promotions, we have had to tweak what is being offered. We now have the addition of Dermalogica® skinsolver®, a 10 minute £10 treatment that is perfect for those of you that would like to come in every week! Choose from hydrating Dewy skinsolver® or Flash peel skinsolver®. Now on to promotions that will run between now and Christmas.

The following product promotions are for while stocks last only. If you like the idea of the gift I can put it away now with a small deposit and pay remaining balance before the end of November.

Brightening Duo = Free skinsolver® voucher
Power Rescue Masque Trio = Free skinsolver® voucher
Skin Perfecting set = Free microZone® and touch therapy® voucher
Clear Start set = Free travel bag

Voucher promotions;

This is available from now until 30th November only. The vouchers below will be available for use from January 2017 only (all regular vouchers that you have can still be used as normal);

I'm basically copying Boots! 3 for 2 on all treatments. Pick any 3 and get the cheapest service free. You can even pick 3 the same (handy if you fancy a course). Again, please keep in mind this promotion is only running until the 30th November and the vouchers will only be valid for use from January. There will be another voucher promotion in December, however these will be for treatments/groupings we have selected. 

If you fancy a prize go to the Facebook page and check out the Halloween competition!

See you soon,

Andrew.

October

October is here, which means time for the new round of promotions. We have two new treatments added to the menu in the form of Hot Stone therapy and Indian head massage.

Both now performed by Sarah. Indian head massage will be priced at £15 for 25min treatment time and Hot Stone back massage (25min) will be priced at £20 or full body (60min) at £30. But wait! Your receipts for October-November will have a coupon for Hot Stone back massage for £17 of full body for £27. This will lock in that price when you have a coupon up to the 30th November.

All Dermalogica® C******s (I'll censor the word until next month at least) kits are available for purchase. Please see the Facebook page for full descriptions and prices. Some items will be sold out by the time December swings round so best grab them now if you want them, while I can still get hold of some of the sets.

For October you will be able to experience IonActive™ for £50 instead of £60. IonActive™ is a next level Expert skin treatment from Dermalogica® that uses high strength products mixed with electrical modalities to provide results you will love. If you have both microZone and the Dermalogica skin treatment and know the difference you experience with the two, this one is again another level up from that. Also anyone having this treatment will be entitled to 10% off any retail products purchased on the day. 

Next up, a return...

Sorry this is a week late, been very busy! Just a quick update for this months promotions and an introduction;

Dermalogica® promotion: Spend £70 on products this month and get the Skin Detox Set worth £33.50 for free. It contains travel sizes of Multi-Active Toner, Charcoal Rescue Masque and Hydrablur® Primer (Tip: even men can use this one, the tint is so subtle).

Scrummi has been appointed our new disposable towel provider. This is in keeping with our goal of becoming a carbon neutral company. The towels are 100% biodegradable, made from certified sustainable sources and by using them we reduce our energy, water and detergent use massively. This added to the fact that they are hygienic, as everyone gets their own towel means they are better for you, us and the environment.

Sarah, our intimate waxing specialist will be starting 7th July and will be offering late appointments on Thursday and Friday up to 8pm. Sarah has trained with one of the countries (and indeed the worlds) leading waxing specialists (Kim Lawless aka 'The Wax Queen'), she is first class and undergoes regular training to refresh skills and learn new techniques. Some of you may remember Sarah, as she did her work placement with me each week about 4/5 years ago. So if you can't get an appointment with me give Sarah a go as she does things exactly like I do. Prices for intimate waxing can be found on the website: www.arhskincare.com

 

Over the next few months there will be news on new treatments being added to the menu so stay ahead and sign up to the newsletter on the website.

SPF and why it is not just a thing for holiday.

The main issue people have when they come in to see me is ageing concerns followed by pigmentation. The issue with SPF use, in this country at least, is that it is seen as a 'holiday' item or for the odd day out at the beach. UV rays are present whenever it is light, even when cloudy you are exposed to UVA, which is the long-wave band that causes wrinkles and pigmentation. Both UVA and UVB contribute to causing skin cancer. If you are not familiar with the different types, you are not alone. Quite often 'broad spectrum' protection is mentioned. This means that it provides protection against UVA and UVB, and should be the base standard you look for when choosing an SPF product. Now, here is where is starts to get complicated (and hopefully explained). SPF is not a specific amount of protection as such, it indicates how long it will take for UVB to redden the skin (UVB is the main cause of sunburn as it affects the top layers of the skin more).

If we take an SPF 15 it will mean it takes your skin 15 times longer to redden your skin than your skin would normally do without sunscreen (remember your skin is different to other people and you may redden quicker). It also screens approximately 93% of the sun's UVB rays. SPF 30 protects up to 97% and SPF 50 up to 98%. So when choosing what SPF to use we need to look at a few different factors. Day to day is a simple start. If you work in an office or indoors you are unlikely to need a high SPF. Although UVA can penetrate glass, UVB doesn't so easily. So a lower factor is perfectly fine depending on your skin. If you work by windows, maybe think about raising your SPF level. When it comes to outside working a higher SPF can be used. And if you have a manual job outside and are prone to sweating, try a water resistant SPF. Holidays are a time when you might find it beneficial to raise your SPF always remembering to reapply regularly and recognising that water resistant does not mean water proof!

Before you go away or even if you are looking at year round sun protection keep in mind I am here to have a chat with you about your options and have a wide range of solutions from Dermalogica® the brand developed in the land of perpetual sunshine, California (making it a brand that takes sun protection seriously).

Freebies and promotions

Any purchase of Dermalogica® products over £60 in May will get you a free microZone® and if one of your products contains SPF (or After Sun Repair, which turbo charges your skins recovery rate and also makes a fab after wax care product!) you get to take home the stylish beach or yoga tote bag (as pictured, towel and yoga mat not included). Get prom ready with a Clear Start microZone® for £20 instead of £24, and when you purchase 2 Clear Start products (including kit) you get a free Prom Prep Kit to take along wherever you go, so you never have an excuse to drop your routine for a night!

Receipt promotional coupons

If you came in for a treatment or purchased a product from mid April you will have been given a receipt. These receipts are carbon neutral (I don't like waste either) and will be given after every treatment or product purchase. The great news is now, there is a monthly receipt promotion. If you have one, you'll know April's had a coupon for a microZone® for £20 to use in May. Receipts in May will have a coupon on the bottom for use in June in our biggest ever treatment give away, for a free underarm wax, which is a treatment worth £6! If you have it done regularly, you'll know how fantastic smooth underarms can be and if you've never had it done but always thought about it, now is the time to try. Coupon must be presented at time of treatment and you may pass on coupons to whoever you like.


IonActive™

It is finally here! From May you will be amongst the first in the country to be able to experience the power of IonActive Power Treatment, which delivers a personalised bio+charged therapy for more visible, rapid results. This action packed treatment combines thermal activity and the latest treatment room technology to optimise product penetration for rapid skin health results. Your skin will look and feel dramatically improved, with reduced signs of skin ageing, uneven skin tone, acne or dehydration. To celebrate the launch of this treatment, courses purchased in May will be reduced to £150 for 3 or £290 for 6. The treatment is normally priced at £60 per session and booking is available from the first week of May.

April promotions and a competition (it's a very good prize, grab a cup of tea, sit down and read right through to the bottom) -

April sees the launch of Charcoal Rescue Masque. This all round wonder masque purifies skin using Binchotan Charcoal to draw out oil.

While Sulphur removes dulling dead skin cells and combats breakout causing bacteria. This masque provides visible results after one use (my skin looked so bright after just one application). You can multi-masque or target certain areas, but as this masque is suitable for all skin types it is pretty much an all round treat for any condition. The masque is priced at £38 and for the month of April, when you purchase a tube of Charcoal Rescue Masque you get a microZone® for free! (That means if you're having a microZone® this month you can grab a full size masque for just £14)
