naturapathica anyone?

Wondering if anyone out there has been working with or trying Naturapathica.?? I love that it's all organic and have heard some nice things about it but nothing on this forum. It's a very expensive buy in. 5K and wish they had something smaller to help out the smaller etsy's but any feedback would be nice. See More

Microcurrent machine for personal/home use?

Does anyone recommend any inexpensive microcurrent machines for personal use?  I'm considering products such as Nuface, Neurotris, PicoToner, CACI MIcrolift.  I want something to use on myself before I make a large investment on my clients (still 2-3 years down the road for me). I've had some treatments done before and absolutely LOVED the results.  I guess the question is...do the more inexpensive products work?See More

From Esthetics to Advanced Procedures from an RN's Standpoint and Combination Licensing

I have been a Licensed Esthetician, Certified Aromatherapist, and Professional Makeup Artist for 6+ years, 9 years total in the cosmetics/skincare business. I formerly managed cosmetic lines such as Estee Lauder (twice) which is what inspired me to get into Esthetics. After graduating and moving, I found a very hard time finding employment at a spa with a steady facial clientele in the Pawleys Island, SC area. After deliberation, I decided to enroll in college again for my RN to combine with…
