Does anyone use Spa Girl Powerdem? If so how do you like it? Do you use other ensyme, i.e. Skin Script?

"So, there is really no difference between professional vs OTC. But we tell our clients to purchase only professional products. Why? If they can get something from Walmart, Ulta, Sephora that does the same thing?"

Professional vs OTC

Ok. I am totally confused. And I've been trying to straighten this out in my mind. Professional vs OTC?If professional products are suppose to have more active or maximum amount of active ingredients and only sold by professional1. How do I know what they are saying is true. Any company can say they are a professional skin care or nakeup line and have no more active ingredients than an OTC.2. If you are a professional skin care line with the maximum active ingredients, why are you now selling…See More

Hi Vanessa, I look for several markers for doing business with any manufacturer listed in Alibaba.

 !st.  I am picky about the quality of the product, I only do business with companies in Japan, Taiwan, or Korea. Products from China are poorly made. The manufacturers listed in these countries generally offer > 2year product satisfaction.

 2. Always select a manufacturer that uses a Paypal or Escrow account. NEVER send payment in advance. NEVER use a debit card.

3. Research the product you are shopping for & consider what you license as an esthetician allows. 

These are the guidelines I go by when purchasing products... there are so many manufacturers on Alibaba I cannot recommend anyone in particular. If you have any specific questions about a particular product of equipment please contact me at: vansolr@earthlink.net.  I hope this information is helpful to you.  Sincerely, Cece  L.E., M.Ed.
