Beautiful blooms, rays of sunshine, and a respite from the rain…could it be…is spring finally here? Can we pack up our parkas, retire our rainboots, and enjoy the beautiful Washington scenery finally visible after months of gloomy grey? At Blush, we think the answer is a resounding YES!
Aside from the obvious joys of a PNW spring (like catching a glimpse of Mt. Rainier), we at Blush look forward to the challenge of meeting the evolving skincare needs of our clients. One skincare need that we have decided to address for ourselves and our clients is the need to clean out our old, trusty makeup bags and freshen up our options-because 1) Makeup is fun, and 2) We all know that we’re not going to embark on our household spring cleaning until…June (at least).
We know that everyone has a few favorite standby products, but how often should they be swapped out? A quick scan of the Internet tells us the following:
Yikes! We know we don’t always follow these rules (whoops…) and we’re pretty sure you haven’t either (don’t worry, we won’t tell). However, don’t despair! We have a (fun) solution!
On Thursday, March 24th from 5-7 PM, the Blush gals are hosting a grand ol’ spring cleaning party…a makeup bag spring cleaning, that is!
Blush Day Spa will be showcasing the La Bella Donna makeup line, and our staff will be available to help you find great new products. This event is FREE and open to everyone, but we have some extra special perks for those of you who purchase tickets!
If you purchase a ticket for $25, your party experience will include:
You can purchase tickets HERE (select Spring Cleaning Makeup Event in the drop-down menu),over the phone (360-352-7072), or in person at the spa (1702 4th Ave E).
We hope to see you there, and be sure to bring your cleaning gloves (just kidding)!
Hello ladies (and gentlemen)!
We are entering 2016, a new year full of promise and hope. We hope your 2015 was filled with joy and happiness, but let’s get real. 2015 was probably tough. Tougher than you imagined it would be. Maybe you were swamped with work, overwhelmed with family, or you had hoped to accomplish more, but life got in the way. WE GET IT. The Blush Beauty Girls are well accustomed to hectic schedules, family needs, and we’ve had a few plumbing incidents this year too (don’t worry, we fixed it).
As we reflect together on this past year, we all feel grateful to have a passionate group of women (and men) to share our hopes and dreams with. That group is YOU, our clients and supporters!
Every single person that walks into Blush is special to us, and our purpose is to help you feel happy and beautiful when you leave our cozy little spa. However, we’re about to ask you all for a little favor….
In this new and exciting year we want each person reading this to take some extra time and commit to self-care. What does self-care mean? Exactly what it sounds like! Self-care is consciously caring for yourself, whether it’s spending an extra five minutes in the morning drinking your cup of coffee and reading your favorite blog before jetting off to work, focusing on positive thoughts about your body or personality, or even swiping on a bright red lipstick to jazz up your day. Self-care can be whatever YOU need it to be, and it is so important to your overall well-being.
We have truly incredible clients-teachers, soldiers, lawyers, nurses, moms, dads, artists, therapists-literally, you name it, and we probably know someone. That said, we want you all to be the best you can be-physically, mentally, and emotionally. Take a few extra moments for YOU in 2016. Enjoy that piece of dark chocolate. Go for that run in the sunshine. Turn off your phone, go to bed earlier, or dance to your favorite tune.
Consciously decide that you ARE important, and you need a little extra love too.
Share your favorite ideas or thoughts about self-care, we would love to hear them! And, if you feel so inclined, we’d love to help you with your self-care goals! Feel free to call or email to schedule an appointment with us and be on your way to a happier you.
Happy New Year!
The Blush Beauty Girls.
The weather here is normally not so warm and glorious, so I know like many of you, I am out in the warmth sunbathing like a cat in the window…napping…enjoying…soaking up all the rays and all the warm-luxury-goodness…Safely, of course.
I recently stumbled across a short, truthful article on tanning beds, that so intensively “called-out” fake-n-bakers about the horrors of tanning beds. The author states, “I made a quick (and yes, judgmental) assessment of your skin tone based on your hair and eye color. You probably tan easily but it was the first week of June and we had had a sub-zero winter. There was not a tan line to be seen across your shoulders, back, or legs. All signs pointed to pre-prom fake-n-bakin’.”
The horror signs and outcomes of what tanning beds can do to our lovely, youthful skin seem to be overlooked all too often because the cost of beauty is more important….but let me be frank….nothing is worth harming yourself….
that indoor tanning results in almost 420,000 cases of skin cancer diagnosed in the United States each year;
tanning causes more cases of skin cancer than cases of lung cancer are caused by smoking;
that ONE tanning session in an indoor UV tanning bed increases the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma by 67 percent. And if you go just a few more times, the risk of developing basal cell carcinoma increases by 73 percent;
that rates of incidence of melanoma among young adults has increased 800 percent in the last four decades;
that melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer;
that 76 percent of cases of melanoma among 18-29 year olds can be attributed to tanning bed use;
that your risk of developing melanoma increases by 75 percent if you have used a tanning bed before the age of 35;
that nearly 10,000 people will die from melanoma this year?
So, what does Blush have that can help you protect your skin YET get a beautiful tan in our very rainy state? Can you obtain a line-free tan for prom? Weddings? Or a base tan for your summer adventures?
Glad you ask!!!!
We have custom, airbrush tans that are NOT to be confused with spray tans.
Airbrush tanning offers a seamless tan that looks natural and is safe to utilize regularly. Many people think airbrush tanning and spray tanning are the same thing but in actuality are very different.
Spray tanning can trend toward orange in many cases and often results in streaking. One achieves this “tan” by stepping into a spray tanning booth where an automated machine sprays the person down head to toe. The fumes can be pretty intense.
Spray tanning booths typically offer one type of tanning solution for every skin type, which clearly is a problem for anyone looking for a custom tan. In the spray tanning booth, the person inside needs to flail their arms and legs around to try and get an evenly coated tan with not enough tanning solution or enough time to cover the entire body adequately. It takes up to three sessions to get an even tan (which is too dark in color) compared to one session for an airbrush tan.
(In the infomercial voice….) BUT WAIT THERES MORE!!!! We use Bronze Biologic Tan Solution. Bronze Biologic tanning solutions do not and will never contain any harmful or toxic chemicals, dyes, alcohol, additives, perfumes, or artificial colors. They have sourced out only the purest form of all of ingredients that will deliver results unsurpassed by any other tanning solution on the market.
The ingredients are: purified water, cane sugar, carbohydrate compound from beets (for coloring), aloe vera, Benzoic Acid (natural antimicrobial compound from cranberries, prunes, greengage plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves and apples), and Sorbic Acid (derived from the oil of the unripened rowan berry to safely prevent bacteria and mold growth. THATS IT!!!!!!
And once you have your glow, we carry COOLA, an organic suncare products to continue to protect you and your loved ones all summer long. Call the spa to book an appointment, mention “I love my skin,” when booking appointment to receive $10 off your tan.
Protect your Be-you-tiful skin,

Baby Foot is an unparalleled, total foot care package that provides you with the opportunity to care for and maintain your feet at home. Our scientifically formulated product contains 17 types of natural extracts which exfoliate and moisturize at the same time. The principal ingredient of Baby Foot is fruit acid which is very gentle, when compared with other acids. The fruit acid penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which hold the layers together. By this process, skin is undamaged but peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath. After peeling, your feet are reborn just like a baby’s foot, giving you healthy, beautiful feet.

*While Supplies Last
As the blustery winds and chilly days begin to emerge in our beautiful city, we wanted to share some insights to help our clients and friends keep their skin and nails intact.
Our bodies are made up of 70% water, and water is a key component to the proper functioning of our organs and overall health. During warmer months, we are often more aware of dehydration due to the heat, our physical activity, and the irresistible craving for a coconut water or glass of lemonade. Once winter begins to creep in, many of us overlook the importance of hydrating.
Because dehydration can lead to dry and wrinkling skin, as well as weak brittle nails, this is an important factor to consider when assessing your skin and nail needs. Remembering to drink water is vital, and while water intake varies depending on the person, the old standard of 8 glasses a day is always a safe bet.
Cold weather in general can wreak all sorts of havoc on our lives-whether we’re navigating through a blizzard or trying to pick out a Christmas tree without freezing, we have little defense against Mother Nature. When your skin and nails are exposed to these extreme elements, there is no doubt that there will be an adverse effect. Remember to bundle up carefully, and this includes wearing gloves! Proper attire will shield your body and keep you cozy, and gloves will help your hands and nails retain their natural moisture…and really, who wants to feel cold anyway?
It is so important to pick out products that will help nourish and heal your skin, especially during these harsher months. Here at Blush, we have a few favorites that address issues mentioned above and perform far beyond your traditional drugstore lotion or cleanser.
We selected products based on their hydration capabilities, outstanding ingredients, and overall effectiveness. Many contain hyaluronic acid, a perfect ingredient to employ during the winter months. The hyaluronic acid molecules can attract and retain more than a thousand times their weight in water, which makes it great for hydrating your skin.
We utilize each of these products ourselves and in our treatments, and they are all available to purchase at our spa.
Cleanser: Eminence Firm Skin Acai Cleanser or Eminence Coconut Cleanser
Exfoliant: Eminence Monoi Age Corrective Exfoliating Cleanser or Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant
Masque: Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Masque
Moisturizer: Eminence Acai Firm Skin Moisturizer or Rhonda Allison Ultra Hydration Cream
Serum: Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum or Eminence Facial Recovery Oil
Mist: Eminence Neroli Age Corrective Mist or Stone Crop Hydrating Mist
Night Cream: Eminence Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream
Body Cream: Eminence Monoi Age Corrective Night Body Cream or Whoopie Pie Shea Butter Body Cream
Body Oil: Eminence Apricot Body Oil or Farmhouse Fresh Apricot Nectar Oil
Hands & Nails
Hand Lotion: CND Almond Hydrating Lotion or Love & Toast Hand Creams
Cuticle Oil: CND Solar Oil
Lip Balm: Love & Toast Green Tea & Mint Lip Butter and Eminence Citrus Lip Balm or Lip Trio (including a lip exfoliant, lip plumping masque and lip balm)
We would love to hear feedback from our clients and readers-What are your biggest concerns going into the winter? What products or treatments are you looking forward to trying out this year?
