As all of you may know, every week, we run a special promotion showcasing a product that we use and sell at Spa Swina. The three main brands that Spa SWINA offers our clientele are Hylunia, Rhonda Allison, and EltaMD. These companies strive to put highly effective products of the purest quality on the professional market.

We put tremendous value in bringing our students and clients the very best products available in order to achieve maximum results, while protecting the body from harmful ingredients that so many other products contain. It only takes 26 seconds for toxic ingredients to seep through the skin, into the bloodstream, organs, and tissues. So when you make the decision to protect and nourish your face, you are consciously supporting the entire body. Read more to see which of last month’s Products Of The Week would make a great addition to your skincare regimen.
