Still time for Winter Glow


Remember you can still book in on www.bookarh.com for your Winter Glow package anytime between now and February 28th, when the promotion will end.
 

Get Skin Fit in 2018


This month sees the launch of the new Skin Fitness Plans (powered by Facemapping®). It is a new initiative designed for you to have a more in depth conversation with me regarding your skin every few months, so we can keep on top of any seasonal changes to your skin (i.e. dehydrated in winter because of heating). For January you can book in a special package which includes time for a Skin Fitness Plan, a SkinSolver® treatment and a prescriptive skin health kit for £30 on www.bookarh.com (look under the seasonal packages to find it).
 

Price increases 


As always, I am giving you the heads up in January, however any price increases I make always take effect in the new tax year which starts on the 6th April, but as this falls on a Friday I will be delaying the increases until the following week. So with effect from 9th April 2018 you will see an increase in price of all services, except for those detailed below which will remain static.

Not affected are Aromawax massages, which were priced in anticipation of cost rises, nor are any Eve Taylor® skin treatments for the same reason. Dermalogica® treatments, which you will already be aware of had the prices changed with effect from 1st January when the new ProSkin 30 and ProSkin 60 replaced the old treatments.

I will be able to tell you how prices are changing when I next see you.
 

Price decreases (yes, decreases)


As of right now, I will be disregarding all RRP for Dermalogica® retail items. Previously when Dermalogica® retail was sold, you could get free treatments depending on how much you spent. Taking on board feedback that people would just prefer a lower price, I am happy to accommodate and swap out free treatments for lower prices. 

For example;
PreCleanse 150ml was £37 - now £29.07
Active Moist 100ml was £50 - now £39.53

I hope you will find this a bit more easy to understand than the old system of spend this to get that, spend a pound more and get this or that, buy seven of these and get a fancy hat and so on. I will still have freebies that pop up through the year which will still form part of promotions though. 
 

Other stuff


This month for every Dermalogica® product you buy, you will receive a trial size that I think will work great with your skin (while stocks last).

Keep hold of your receipt as if you spend £25 on any Eve Taylor® products this month you can use the coupon to claim a free Refining Eye Gel.   

That is all for this month. I hope you have a great January!

See you soon,

Andrew

Happy New Year! 

We are now well into 2017 and I'm sure we all have the same goal of taking care of ourselves better...and failing miserably at it so far. If you haven't failed, good for you! I however have eaten so much cheese my blood type is now 'dairy'. (Next week I start to lose the weight, I promise!)

One thing I get this time of year is a rush of people who have decided 'now' is the time to take control of their skin. This is great, but it comes with problems. Many peoples issues have developed over a long period of time. And just like my weight it will not disappear over night. Think of your home care as the gym for your skin and professional treatments as a session with a personal trainer. You will notice changes slowly, but there will be changes. Just like I can't go on a diet and lose 8 stone overnight, you cannot get rid of acne overnight.

Now just like gyms and PT's it costs money to achieve this (boo! I know). If you use a gym that only has a treadmill you will get exercise. If you use a gym with all types of equipment you will get a better quality of exercise and see better results sooner. If you go to a PT that only has a vague idea of what they are doing you may get some results, but they may also set you back. If you go to a PT with extensive experience, that is what you are paying for. The same is translatable to skincare and professional treatments. In the end, you get what you pay for. And if you are paying £80 for your hair, £30 for your nails and £100's on clothes a month, yet do not think something that is on show all the time is worth just a few quid, then you are in for a shock when that first deep wrinkle appears. You see superficial lines can be dealt with easier than a deep wrinkle, which then becomes the realm of fillers or surgery. Prevention is better than cure!

Knowledge base

Some of you might have noticed a new tab has appeared on the website. Knowledge base will launch in February and will be a collection of articles and videos about skin and skincare. Next time you are in ask me for the password. 

 

Daily Superfoliant

Go to the Facebook page to enter the competition for the chance to win a skincare set containing the new product from Dermalogica®. Alternatively, if you are having a Dermalogica® treatment in January, you will be entered into a draw to win another.
 

January promotions

Daily Superfoliant is now available for £55, with a free Detox SkinSolver®. 
 

Price increases 

As I have said in December Dermalogica® products will be increasing in price, however I have decided to keep retail at its current price for January only. Please take advantage before any increases. This is due to the fluctuation in the pound against the dollar and will also have effect on professional items purchased from Europe with other treatments. As usual any treatment costs will be from the new financial year in April, so I have time to tell everyone that will be affected. Also as you were told in December the free treatment structure will be changing for Dermalogica®. You will now have the following;

£60 product spend: Free SkinSolver®
£70 product spend: Free microZone®
£100 product spend: Free Dermalogica Skin Treatment®
£120 product spend: Free IonActive™ or BioSurface Peel™

Have a great January!
