Sheri's Top Picks

Our own Sheri Flasch has spent years choosing the next big thing in Esthetics.
Below find her latest faves for skin care professionals out there. 

CLINICIANS COMPLEX Foaming Gel Cleanser

Contains alpha-hydroxy acids, green tea extract & vitamin C

Gently cleanses and provides natural exfoliation.

 Great for acne-prone skin

HALE & HUSH Relief Bio-Powder

An expert blend of eight botanical extracts makes Relief Bio-Powder a powerful dermatologist-tested sensitive skin aid. With fast-acting abilities, it quickly rescues skin under attack from redness, irritation and itchiness. Relief Bio-Powder also helps conceal redness and, when water is added to make a paste, becomes a soothing mask.

HYDROPEPTIDE Solar Defense Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

A tinted moisturizer with SPF that provides broad-spectrum protection and radiant, even-looking skin. Not only does it protect skin from UVA, UVB and infrared rays, but its lightweight coverage also allows your skin to shine through, leaving you with a gorgeous healthy glow you'll love. It's enriched with skin-loving ingredients, including hyaluronic acid to lock moisture in, and a blend of calendula, cucumber and acai extract to guard against free radicals.

the ec Team Picks

We are proud of our hard-working staff, all with a passion for Beauty and Wellness.

Below find some our EC Team staff members' current favorite products. 

Amber

Hale & Hush Mist Me

"Love my Hale & Hush Mist Me! My morning routine isn’t complete until I feel that nourishing spritz and smell that refreshing scent. Mist Me is a refreshing face spritz formulated to hydrate, nourish and energize skin via gentle, yet proactive ingredients. Perfect for my sensitive skin!"

Carline

Makeup Eraser

"Makeup Eraser This is a must have tool in the treatment room and retail for home care. I even have men and teens adding this to their routine. It should be the first step to remove makeup, sweat and dirty, and the days pollution with just water. You can also use it to remove your cleanser, exfoliator and mask."

Kelly

PRANA SpaCeuticals Hydro-Thermal Enzyme Masque

PRANA SpaCeuticals Hydro-Thermal Enzyme Masque is heaven for my skin. It brightens immediately and makes my face feel so soft. The pineapple and papaya fruit enzymes gently exfoliate and accelerate cell turnover, leaving me glowing.

Thomas

DermaMed Solution's Shave Bar

"I just started using this product at home. I was super skeptical about how a bar was going to deliver enough lather to shave my face without nicks or irritation and after the first time I used this product I was AMAZED. No irritation, no cuts, and unlike with most traditional shaving cream this shave bar left my skin feeling velvet smooth and not sticky/tacky as I usually feel after using shaving cream/gel."

Shirley

XO8 Placenta Stem Cell Lip Mask

" I love that this mask hydrates the lip with HA and grape seed oil, has a bit of a tingle due to the kojic acid and vitamin a which in turn helps to brighten up those smootchers, tones with the rose extract and of course has the wonderful ovine sheep placenta extract that XO8 is known and loved for. Clients love when I pull these these out as they know they are getting something extra. "

Melissa

Nature Pure Clinical Skin Care's Instant Energizer Oxygen Masque

"Nature Pure Clinical Skin Care's Instant Energizer Oxygen Masque My pick of the month is Nature Pure Clinical Skincare's Instant Energizer Oxygen Masque. After cleansing I apply this light foamy masque and leave it on a few minutes. While on, it has a "bubbly" feeling and when removed leaves my skin bright and energized. It just feels great! "
