Barefoot Venus

Barefoot Venus was founded in 1999 in Kelowna, BC. They strive to encourage a lifestyle of beauty and wellness through the indulgence of a divine bath and body experience that leaves you smelling angelic and glowing like a goddess. Their products include pampering presents for the bath, beautifying gifts for the skin and body, and scent-sational fragrances.

Barefoot Venus is all about calming bubble baths and the simple pleasures of relaxation. They want their products to allow your beauty to bloom with mood-inspiring moisturizers and lotions, and aspire for their products to encourage your confidence and beauty to radiate from within. They believe that exfoliating and washing your body cleanses and nurtures the soul as well as the skin, and wish to promote stillness and tranquility in the chaos of the outside world. Their bath collection aims to engage your senses, soothe your spirit and provide comfort for both body and mind.

Their lines range from bath products, body oils, and body creams to hand and foot repairs. There are so many great scents, there is bound to be one that appeals to everyone. Some popular scents in our salon are hunny mango, pink pepper and wild ginger and sweet orange. Barefoot Venus manufactures light nourishing lotions as well as deeply hydrating lotions to relieve and repair the toughness, wear and dryness on your hands and feet.

The fun packaging and scents of this Canadian body care line make for a popular addition to any beauty cabinet. The products are less treatment oriented, more geared towards self-indulgence to be enjoyed by anybody. It’s a fairly natural line as well, created without the use of parabens, mineral oil or sodium lauryl sulfate.

One ingredient in many of their products that they love is olive oil. It is naturally rich in vitamin E, which provides supreme softness to skin. Olive oil has tremendous soothing and restorative properties. One of their bath soaks includes mustard seed powder which helps to draw impurities from the skin, open pores and stimulates the sweat glands. Other notable botanical ingredients include: shea butter, mango seed butter, argan oil, sesame seed oil, and apricot kernel.

Dermalogica is the number one choice of skincare consumers worldwide. Its sleek, streamlined packaging appeals to everyone and the products deliver great results made possible through education, innovation and professional recommendation.

Their knowledgeable application of high-end products successfully delivers the best results for all their customers. Their extensive line of products is geared to treat every condition and skin type. They also have a great sun care line with many formulations for all different skin types.

The most popular products in the line are the MediBac Clearing line, which is very effective for the treatment of acne, and all of their sun protection products, which are the best in the industry. The MediBac Clearing system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. While most acne treatment products are designed for teenage skin, they end up being too harsh and irritating for adult skin.

When overactive skin glands produce too much oil, it can give the skin a slick, greasy appearance. It’s this oil that traps skin cells that should have been shed, clogging follicles and hindering oxygen flow, which is essential for the skin. It’s in this environment that bacteria can flourish, and the skin’s natural defense system causes acne. Dermalogica has devoted their research to inhibiting the four main contributing factors to acne production, and have developed ingredients that are very effective in controlling breakouts.
