Favorite Retail Products
We sat down with Lash & Skin Lounge owner Nikki Nixon and asked her for her professional opinion on her favorite COSMEDIX products that she enjoys using on clients. While she offers several COSMEDIX products and various treatments on her website, here are Nikki’s top three favorite products and why:
Purity Solution Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil is a two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser with a nutrient-rich blend of radiance-boosting oils that gently melt away dirt, oil, makeup and impurities for a hydrated, healthy-looking glow. Purity Solution contains Argan Oil, Moringa Oil, and Olive Oil to naturally soothe and condition with radiance-boosting vitamins for a dewy soft texture. See why Nikki loves Purity Solution below:
“I love purity solution and the way that it just melts away makeup and dirt from my skin. This is a must for all of my clients as it perfectly preps the skin for the rest of their routine.”
Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum is our #1 bestselling product and is formulated with Copper Complex and Liquid Crystals to encourage a firmer, younger looking appearance with deep, lasting hydration. Opti Crystal is a fan favorite as it radically reduces the look of dark circles and improves the look of fine lines. See why Nikki loves Opti Crystal below:
“Opti Crystal is the holy grail of eye creams. I have used this personally for years and it has truly kept my eye area hydrated & bright. I recommend this to every client.”
C.P.R. is an ultra-soothing Skin Recovery Serum formulated with powerhouse antioxidants, peptides and plant-based extracts that deliver intense hydration and replenishment to sensitive, post-procedure skin. This serum contains a blend of Watermelon, Apple & Lentil Extracts, Sodium PCA & Sodium Lactate vitamin-rich extracts and powerhouse skin care ingredients that help reduce dryness by delivering intense hydration to dry skin. See how Nikki incorporates C.P.R. into her treatments below:
“This is perfect for our clients after treatments to help their skin heal and recover. I also love it for clients to have on hand for when their skin feels unbalanced to bring it back to its "zen" state.”
Favorite Backbar Products
The Lash & Skin lounge offers an array of different products and treatments for their clients. We asked Nikki to choose her *favorite* backbar products to use on clients and why. See what Nikki chose below!
Pomegranate Enzyme is a gentle antioxidant exfoliating treatment that helps even out the skin’s complexion. Pomegranate Enzyme protects against environmental stressors and leaves skin renewed and radiant looking. See what Nikki says about Pomegranate Enzyme below:
“I love this product as I can use it on most skin types to boost exfoliation, and to prep for more aggressive treatments”
Blueberry Smoothie is part L-Lactic Acid exfoliant + part manual scrub that softens rough, uneven skin for a balanced-looking complexion. Blueberry Smoothie exfoliates dull surface cells and pore-clogging impurities to result in clearer-looking skin. See how Nikki uses Blueberry Smoothie below:
“This is one of our most popular add ons. We like to add it into a double cleanse to give a gentle mechanical exfoliation to reveal immediate brightness and hydration.”
Remedy is a multitasking Omega-Complex Treatment Oil that delivers a daily dose of hydration to help protect and condition the skin for a radiant look. The multipurpose formula has a rich, smooth texture and helps address concerns such as dullness and dry skin without clogging the look of pores or leaving behind a greasy residue. See why Nikki loves using Remedy on her clients below:
“Love this product! We use it in the salon to oil plane our clients. It hydrates the skin while providing a smooth canvas to perform dermaplaning.”
To wrap up our interview with Nikki, we asked her about her favorite treatment to perform on clients. After narrowing down all of the facials and peels offered at Lash & Skin Lounge, Nikki chose this treatment as her favorite:
The Deep Sea Peel at Lash & Skin Lounge is a non-acid peel that utilizes manual exfoliation to resurface and rejuvenate the skin, lifting away to help diminish the look of an uneven skin tone. The Deep Sea Peel provides deep exfoliation for softer, more even looking skin. See why Nikki loves the Deep Sea Peel below:
“I absolutely love the results this peel (aka liquid micro needling) provides to our clients. I have seen so much improvement on our clients suffering from discoloration, acne scarring and lack of collagen. We are in Arizona so many of our clients suffer from hyperpigmentation and other skin discolorations. This is a great alternative to micro needling for those who are pregnant, or those who are nervous about needles and unsure about micro needling but need to address deeper skin concerns.”
