Basic Facial Steps for a DIY Facial

Of course I reference Perfectly Posh products in this video, but you could use pretty much any complete skin care line for similar results.

Watching the video above is the sexiest way to learn about these steps, but the express version consists of this:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Exfoliate
  3. Tone (if you want to, or after cleansing if you want to, or really anywhere that makes sense for you)
  4. Massage
  5. Extractions (only if you’re trained to do them safely!)
  6. Mask
  7. Treat
  8. Moisturize/SPF

Perfectly Posh for Estheticians

Several esthetician friends of mine have been asking “Should I join Posh?”

The short answer is “YES.”

Adding Perfectly Posh to my skin care practice has changed things up in a big way. I explain more in this video (please watch!), but to be quick about it I am enjoying my work, selling more retail, and developing much more beneficial and unique spa treatments now that Posh is in my toolbox. Posh is affordable, effective and so. much. fun.

If you’d like to chat about adding Perfectly Posh to YOUR esthetics practice, please ask me anything! I’d love to have you join our team. 

 

Sip, Sip, Hooray! 

Hi my name is Mariah and I like to drink as I get my face mask on 🤗 

One of my absolute favorite things to do for myself since I’ve starting using Perfectly Posh, are face masks! ❤ I discovered how beneficial they can be for my skin, like how the Cackle Spackle, with its charcoal and kaolin clay, draws impurities from my pores, or how Hot & Gold, with its colloidal gold, gives my skin that brighter appearance 😍 

These two are a only a couple of my favorite face masks, if not for their fun colors! I love the way I feel after doing my own facial, it just feels so clean washing my face then applying an “off” mask to get all that gunk out, then an “on” mask to replenish all those good oils back into my face! If you hadn’t tried a face masking yet, I totally recommend it, especially if you’re looking for a relaxing day in! Let’s face it, we females do quite a lot, we deserve a glass of wine with a bubble bath and face mask every now and then 😘

CHEERS! 🥂

Perfectly Posh Add Ons for Massage Therapists

I’ve been a licensed massage therapist for twelve years, so I’ve had my hands on a whole lot of products. We’re talking bulk oils (55 gallon drums anyone?), cremes (5 gallon pails that went rancid before they could be used up), and scrubs (you mean they’re not supposed to dehydrate back into sharp-edged sugar daggers?). Products that took up a lot of room, couldn’t be retailed, and left little flexibility if I had a client who was allergic to or didn’t care for a particular scent or formula.

Enter Perfectly Posh: 9 oz. body scrubs, 2 oz. masks (in sanitary tubes — no double dipping!), 4 oz. facial moisturizers, 6 oz. body cremes (again, in tubes), and 3 oz. hand cremes. This list just cratches the surface of Posh’s entire line, but it’s a great place to start when we’re talking massage add ons.

My treament room has a sink in it, but not a shower. I make sure my clients don’t have any allergies or sensitivities to any ingredients prior to starting a service, and I’m always willing to customize a service to reach my clients’ specific goals. Here are some ideas I’ve used with a high degree of success:

Foot Treatment

Soak feet in a tub of warm water. Add a Perfectly Posh Fizi Bath Bomb or a partial scoop of All Mixd Up Bath Salts. Scrub legs and feet with a Posh body scrub that compliments the scent of the bath bomb or salts (I like Love The Dark for perfumey combos and Espresso Yo’Self for yummy dessert combos). After 10 – 15 minutes, remove you client’s feet from the tub and dry them off. Have them get on the massage table for the remainder of their massage, and when you get to their legs and feet use a Posh body creme on both (I like Honey Honey and Hippie Hooray for leg and foot massage), or use Toes Before Bros Foot Mask on their feet, and perform an extended foot massage. Remove excess product with steamed towels.

Back Treatment

After massaging your client’s back, remove excess oil with a gentle cleanser (Posh’s That’s So Cuke Foaming Face Wash is my top pick) and steamed towels. Apply The Stripper Body Mud to your client’s back and cover with a steamed towel, then insulate with at least two layers of dry towels to keep your client warm. Leave on for 10 – 15 minutes and remove with steamed towels. Apply a Posh body creme (Hippie Hooray compliments The Stripper’s fragrance really well) and massage it into your client’s skin.

Facial Treatment

Cleanse your client’s skin using a gentle cleanser like Posh’s That’s So Cuke Foaming Face Wash and remove with a steamed towel. Gently massage Apricots Overnight into your client’s skin using upward strokes. Allow mask to absorb for a total of twenty minutes (you can perform a scalp or neck massage during this time as well.) Remove mask with steamed towels and apply a Perfectly Posh facial moisturizer of your choice (I like Night & Day or Dawn On Me Daytime Facial Oil.)

Thanks to Posh, I have fun creating  spa services and packages again! It’s also nice to have a full line of cruelty-free, naturally-based, American-made spa products at my disposal. If my clients want to use some at home they can purchase what I have in stock, or they can place an order on my (free!) personalized website 24/7/365. (This is especially handy for my out of town clients — they can order before they fly home and have their Posh waiting for them when they arrive.)

If you’re a massage therapist who could use some adventurous spa products that won’t break the bank and will give you limitless add on and retail possibilities, check out what Perfectly Posh has to offer. Of course I’m always here to answer absolutely any questions you have about Posh or spa add ons in general. Pamper on, massage therapists!

NEW Masks in Posh’s Spring/Summer 2017 Catalog!

If pressed, I would have to say Posh’s best overall category of products is their face and body mask collection. Clay, mud, charcoal, enzymes, glycolic acid, shea and cocoa butters; these are a few of my favorite things. Not to mention they work quickly (my busy schedule thanks you), and because most of them are also loaded with fruit extracts or essential oils, they smell phenomenal!

My favorite masks from the new catalog are Go West (a gentle clay-based mask, deep cleansing and mildly exfoliating), Envy This (I swear, if given a French name and sold at a high-end spa, this tightening “date night mask” would cost $75 instead of $20), and All I’ve Avo Wanted (Depeche Mode lyrics AND hydrating beyond belief?! Sign me up!) Posh’s catalog does an alright job of describing their masks, but I wanted to take it a step further. In the video below, I specify which masks focus on deep cleansing, exfoliating, anti-aging, and hydrating/soothing. I know it’s 17 minutes long, but if you’re not sure which masks are right for your skin type (or your customers’ skin types if you’re a Posh consultant), it’s worth watching (said your humble narrator.) Enjoy!

Perfectly Posh Names Their Products After My Favorite Songs

Posh’s new Spring/Summer 2017 catalog is the best one yet, IMHO.

And those are just the references that jumped out at my 38-year-old brain (I’m sure you young kids could spot some more.)

Here’s a live Facebook video I made where I review some of these products and sing some of these songs (poorly.) Enjoy!

Creative Multimasking with Perfectly Posh Masks, Part 1

I’ve been using multiple masks on my clients’ faces for years, but I didn’t know it had recently become a beauty trend for home mask users around the world. The other day my Posh teammate Angie suggested I film some creative multimasking videos to post on social media, and that’s when I found out Instagram was full of people getting down with putting two, three, and sometimes four masks on different areas of their faces at the same time.

I took Angie’s advice. Here’s my first official multimasking video, made using four different Perfectly Posh masks. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it!
