What type of product do you use for facial massage?
Grapeseed oil, biotone, etc.
I'm looking for a massage medium great for all skin types.
I've always been a fan of Biotone for massage creams! It gives great slide and has a silky feel to it. The relaxing therapeutic massage cream is my favorite for doing neck/shoulder massage, has a great lavender smell. http://www.biotone.com/massage/relaxing-therapeutic
My second favorite is the Pomegranate oil-free non comedogenic facial cream for massaging the face.http://www.biotone.com/HBFC16Z/oil-free-fragrance-free-facial-thera...
What I love most of all is that they both come in pumps, so I can go back for more if I need to pretty easily. I have not used Grapeseed oil lotions since I just know what I love already. Hope this helps!
Have you checked out the ingredient list in the biotone?
I am sure that you could use something better than that.
I like to use the massage to penetrate quality ingredients/serums - so I would not use anything that was occlusive that I would have to cleanse off, or that had ingredients that were not beneficial to the skin.
Sometimes a gel type masque can be used as your massage medium.
I use jojoba on the body and would use it on the face - probably not during a facial, but that's only my preference. YMMV
What vendor/manufacturer do you purchase the jojoba oil from???
I recently found some incredible oil-based serums from skindropstudio.com. (made in Breckenridge,Co)They provide great slip for facial massage while nourishing the skin. My clients and I have really enjoyed the earthy blends of essential oils and they make a great retail item.
Thank you, I am an esthetician looking for a new lorganic line to utilise and retail.
