New Product Scoop from Sand & Sea Salon and Spa

Just in time for the holidays, Sand and Sea Salon at Wild Dunes Resort has stocked their shelves with some fantastic new product offerings! Get the inside scoop from Salon and Spa Director, Sally Hickerson, on why these products are must-haves. Stop by Sand and Sea during your next visit or give them a call at 843.886.2555 to place your orders or learn more! These new products just might be the perfect holiday or Christmas gift.

Sally's Scoop...

Emi Jay Hair Ties

Emi-Jay Hair Ties and Hair Bands

The idea for Emi-Jay was brought to life by two teenage girls, Emily and Julianne, who hand dye and hand tie them all themselves, and a portion of their proceeds are donated to non-profits such as Locks of Love, Operation Smile, and Project Knapsack.  If you have longer hair and are prone to wearing ponytail holders on your wrists, they’re perfect! People compliment my “bracelets” all the time (added bonus).  Even Jennifer Aniston’s sporting the look.

Moroccan Oil Charleston

Moroccan Oil

The Moroccan Oil line encompasses more than just the oil. It’s a full line of shampoos, conditioners, hair masques, and styling products made with argon oil harvested in Morocco. Of all the argon oil products on the market, this one is the frontrunner. The flagship product is the oil that absorbs into the hair in a way that no other oils can. It doesn’t leave an “oily” feel...just soft, supple, frizz-free hair. It’s perfect for those of us that have over processed, dry, damaged or frizz-prone hair. Trust me, you’ve never had such soft hair in your life (at least since you were 6 years old).

Evian Mist

Evian Mist

Evian Mist accounts for 90% of all water spray purchases and has been a staple with European women for decades for its ability to encourage and maintain a healthy glow in skin. Terrific for everyone in every environment because:
o In the office or at home, it rehydrates skin suffering from overheated or dry air
o Removes perspiration, harmful salt, and chlorine
o Soothes and rehydrates sunburned or wind chapped faces
Here it’s a must-have for bridal parties! It not only helps set makeup, it revives it throughout the day…perfect for looking fresh from the ceremony to the end of the reception.

Deep Steep

Deep Steep

Locally made on Johns Island, these body products are some of our hottest sellers. Our return guests look for this line on the shelves and stock up with as much as they can during their annual visits. All Deep Steep products are free of artificial ingredients and chemical preservatives. Personally speaking, the grapefruit is the best smelling body product I’ve ever come across. For a spa professional, that’s saying a lot!

Archipelago Candles Charleston

Archipelago Candles

These candles are amazing.  So much so, these are the only ones I purchase for myself now. The excursion collection captures the essence of some of the most popular vacation spots in the world, but our favorites here represent the low country – the Charleston and the Savannah candles. Hyacinth, jasmine, and tuberose make up the components of the Charleston scents, and it’s incredibly similar to the springtime fragrances abloom in the air in downtown Charleston and the Barrier Islands. These are perfect for taking home a piece of the Charleston experience.

Clarisonic Skin Care

Clarisonic Skin Care
The Clarisonic facial brush is a technologically advanced way to cleanse the skin. It feels like a gentle massage to the skin, but its benefits go way beyond that. The system has been proven to loosen dirt and oil deep inside the pores by utilizing a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second, cleaning, softening and smoothing the skin that helps remove six times more makeup than manual cleansing.  It’s become a staple in the professional spa world, and our team wouldn’t be able to function without it, myself included.  The long term results are truly astonishing. 

Lafco Soapls and Candles Charleston

Lafco Soaps and Candles

One of Oprah’s favorite things that has become one of mine too. Bonus…their packaging is absolutely beautiful.  These are a great fit for those who prefer bar soaps to body wash but don’t like the industrial smell of other soaps. The have the most wonderful fragrances like Lime Basil, Poppy, and Lemongrass. Likewise, the candles come in unique scents like Chocolate, Orange and Cilantro and pack a fragrant punch for such a small size.  Great gifts for Christmas!
