Beauty Sustainability Month At Citrine

The 2018 Sustainable Beauty Month goal aims to plant 5,000 fruit trees in the remote Loreto region of Peru. These trees will serve as a stable source of food and income for over 350 families living in the region. We can't think of anything more rewarding than knowing our efforts here will directly impact these families for years to come. So, how does Citrine plan to contribute to the tree planting effort in this impoverished region of Peru?

This month, we're celebrating the arrival of Spring and Earth Day by partnering with Davines as part of their annual Beauty Sustainability Month! Every year the Italian hair care line, Davines, confronts a challenge experienced by the less fortunate living on this beautiful planet. We look forward to joining Davines in contributing to global and environmental affairs, as we all know that even the smallest of efforts create noticeable change. 

Beauty Sustainability Month is a unique movement, as Davines and salons join forces in a cross-section between business and the environment we live in and love. This year, Citrine Salon will be assisting Davines in their mission with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.

This month, we will be holding a raffle for a gift basket filled with some of the best-selling Davines hair and body care products. With the purchase of a 5 dollar ticket, your name will be entered into the drawing for a gift basket worth more than 75 dollars! 

All proceeds will go directly to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation at the end of the month. At that time, we will draw a name as well. Stop in this April for more information or to purchase a ticket, or simply follow the link below to donate. Happy Sustainable Beauty Month!

COMING IN MARCH - BUMBLE AND BUMBLE SCALP DETOX

social-5.jpg

We can't wait to get our hands on this new product! Bumble and Bumble is gearing up to release their Scalp Detox and we're sure it's going to be one of our new favorites. 

Knowing that clean scalp is the foundation for both great hair and styling, this cooling, fizzling foam is perfect for removing buildup. If you love dry shampoo or co-washing, this is the product for you! 

So, how does Scalp Detox work? As you section your hair, simply dispense the product into your scalp. Then, use your fingers to massage it into the roots of your hair. It's mix of Micellar Water (to cleanse), Salicylic Acid (to remove pore-clogging debris), and Pathenol (to prevent dry-out) all create a tingling sensation that leaves your scalp feeling healthy and refreshed. Apply it weekly to refresh your scalp, or just to enjoy the tingly microbubbles. 

Anxiously awaiting it's release, we'll be sure to let you know when it's available for purchase in the salon!

Address Winter Skin with Eminence

As the days grow shorter and the air colder, many of us will find our skin feeling dry and itchy. This past week, we were met with a blast of cold air and winter weather, plunging temperatures well down below freezing. An added wind chill makes any journey outdoors a brutal one! 

Exposure to the cold is inevitable, as are the effects of winter air on your skin. Less moisture means drier skin for many, which leads to itchiness and irritation. When skin loses moisture, it overcompensates by producing more oil, which can sometimes result in break outs and a tired, dull appearance. Combat winter dryness this year and restore your skin back to a healthy, glowing complexion by enhancing your skin care routine with the following products specially formulated by Eminence Organic Skin Care.

It seems like no matter how much you moisturize, the coldness has a way of stripping away any remaining hydration in your skin. It's for this reason that Eminence's Facial Recovery Oil is our go-to product this month. This stuff is liquid gold- suitable for all skin types, two small drops work wonders in reviving tired and aged skin.

This top-selling lightweight organic oil deeply nourishes and hydrates skin, restoring moisture and balancing the skin's overall complexion. Olive, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Tea Tree, and Sesame oil contain calming and anti-inflammatory properties, leaving skin smooth and soft. Rue and Sage Leaf Extract hold antibacterial properties that soothe the skin and allow for deep hydration. The Facial Recovery Oil "reduces fine lines and wrinkles up to 43% and increases hydration by up to 53% in just 28 days." Treat and heal your skin to a bright and healthy complexion, and say farewell to dry skin this winter season!

Skincare meets the sea with Eminence

"IMMERSE YOUR SKIN IN THE MARINE FLOWER PEPTIDE COLLECTION TO REVEAL A MORE RADIANT, YOUTHFUL-LOOKING COMPLEXION WITH FEWER FINE LINES AND WRINKLES."

We are excited to introduce two brand new Eminence Organic Skin Care products here at Citrine! Composed of globally sourced plant and algae ingredients, the Marine Flower Peptide Collection consists of an eye cream and a serum that are ideal for all skin types. These products utilize the "superfoods of the sea" to create the new Smart Collagen Complex.

Eminence's new Smart Collagen Complex truly sets this collection apart. By activating the skin's own production of high quality, "smart" collagen, collagen density doubles and skin is left lifted and wrinkles filled. 

The plant peptides featured in this line are naturally derived from rice protein, making it easily absorbed by the skin. These peptides speed up the skin renewal process, improving texture and tone while boosting elasticity. 

The real star of this product, though, is globally sourced and sustainable algae. The Marine Flower Peptide Collection does not contain any shellfish or animal-derived ingredients. The algae is sourced from the Java Islands, Oregon, West Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Atlantic Coast. Delivering nutrient-rich minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, algae supplies the skin with long-lasting hydration and firmness. These organisms naturally defend themselves against sun damage and premature aging, and have been shown to deliver similar results when used on the skin. 


Eminence Top Sellers at Citrine Salon

Since we introduced Eminence Organic Skin Care at Citrine Salon in May, the products have been hard to keep in stock. We knew we were going to love the line immediately, but were not expecting such positive feedback so soon! The all-natural, plant-based Hungarian skin care line was founded under the same beliefs and principles as Citrine, and we knew it would be a perfect match. 

Eminence is one of the most extensive professional and retail product lines in the industry for both face and body. It is natural, organic, and Biodynamic- sporting a broad array of products that treat all skin conditions and concerns. We love that all the products are developed using concentrated formulas, making them cost effective, and are guaranteed to deliver results in the healthiest way possible. 

Nevertheless, we've noticed clients gravitate more towards a couple products in particular. Not only have our clients achieved dramatic results with these products at Citrine, but they are best-sellers across the entire Eminence brand. These past few months, we've barely been able to keep the following products on our shelves: 

1. Bamboo Firming Fluid

If you're looking to achieve a tighter, smoother, lifted appearance, this is answer. The widely popular Bamboo Firming Fluid dramatically firms and tightens skin, reduces visible signs of aging, and increases the skin's ability to stay youthful. Bamboo contains soluble and insoluble fiber, anti-oxidants, proteins, vitamins, and minerals for stronger skin. A natural Retinol alternative complex immediately lifts and tightens with the help of chicory root and tara tree gum. Also within Bamboo Firming Fluid is a Swiss Green Apple stem cell concentrate, coconut oil, coconut water, Monoi, Yam, Carrot, Neroli oil, and Eminence's Biocomplex antioxidant booster.

2. Stone Crop Gel Wash

For those with dry, sensitive, or irritated skin, Stone Crop Gel Wash provides gentle cleansing without drying the skin. Formulated without harsh parabens or sulfates, impurities are washed away to reveal hydrated, smooth skin. Stone Crop, or Sedum, is a genus of succulent, used for its hydrating and healing benefits. A light soap base cleanses and softens the skin, while shea butter works as an antiseptic to restore skin to a calm state. Within the first few uses, you'll notice cleaner skin that doesn't feel "stripped" of it's natural hydration, as well as the removal of surface build-up and impurities. The skin's complexion is left cleared and glowing, with pores that are purified and tightened.

3. Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant

One of the team's personal favorites, Eminence's Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is a daily use rice-based exfoliant and cleanser. A gentle exfoliator, impurities and clogged pores are lightly smoothed away, cleansing and infusing the skin with antioxidants and vitamins. Strawberry works as an astringent, naturally containing salicylic acid that gently removes impurities to brighten skin and shrink pores. Rhubarb acts as a disinfectant, and is a good source of ascorbic acid and Vitamin C. Lactic acid, rice, chickpea flour, and oats exfoliate, deep cleanse, and absorb excess oil. Eminence's Biocomplex booster ensures maximum mineral and vitamin absorption. Skin is perfectly cleansed and refined, leaving a smooth and polished texture.

Bumble and bumble Prepares to Release New Damage Repair Products

TEASED, TUGGED, FRIED, DYED... YOU’VE HURT YOUR HAIR. NOW, IT’S TIME TO SAY SORRY.

Did you know a strand of hair is stronger than a copper wire of the same diameter? Or that it's one of the fastest growing tissues in the human body, second to bone marrow?

We owe a lot to our hair, especially for those of us that regularly color, curl, flat-iron and tease. It's a miracle hair is still attached to our head, after all the ups and downs and trouble we put it through. 

Even with split ends, tangles, or dryness, hair is resilient. No matter how much we mistreat it and damage it further, our hair stays with us. We owe a lot to our tresses for this- and should make up for the chaos we inflict on it. Masques and treatments restore moisture and shine to the hair, but what can be used to reverse all types of heat damage and normal wear and tear?

Bumble and bumble has long carried products tailored specifically to damaged hair. Various Bumble masques, complexes, and leave-in treatments provide relief to even the most unfortunate heads of hair. Nevertheless, Bumble is set to release two new damage repair products that stand out from the rest: Save the Day and While You Sleep. The most intensive repair products yet, Save the Day and While You Sleep are super versatile and are suitable for every hair type.

Save the Day is intended to be used during the daytime, and is a lightweight fluid/serum that repairs hair and split ends, protects against heat and UV damage, and hydrates and smooths flyaways and frizz. Save the Day should be applied to damp hair before drying- easy as that! You'll have instantly softer, smoother, healthier-looking and feeling hair. Getting around-the-clock repair could not be more simple.

While You Sleep, as you guessed, is an overnight restorative masque that helps reverse the appearance of damaged hair. This super-nourishing treatment repairs past damaged and prevents against any future abuse. By morning, hair will feel silky-smooth and de-stressed. Both of these products are perfect for any excess color clients, frequent stylers, and people who spend a lot of time under the sun or in air-polluted metropolitan areas. 

Save the Day and While You Sleep are both lightweight, multi-benefit products formulated with camellia oil and antioxidants for advanced hair repair. Achieving revived, healthy hair can't be any easier. Bumble and bumble is releasing these products in the coming weeks, however Citrine will have them in early for retail purchase. Both are free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. We are currently accepting pre-orders! Call to get started on the ultimate hair repair or stop in to pick up your own.
