I absolutely love the solar manicure products, as do my clients.
But the one thing with the Solar manicure scrub is that it goes everywhere!I even find it on the floor.

How do you other geeks go about removing it from your clients hands after you've exfoliated? Is there a technique you use to help make less mess?

lol!! This is so timely for me. I had my first Solar manicure client on Friday and yes, the exfoliator went everywhere!

I had a bowl of warm water at the side of me and I used mitts to remove it. It didn't take long but it was messy despite my efforts to keep it contained. :lol::lol:

Having said that the client loved it and has said she'll defiantely be re-booking.:)

Any tips or tricks would be welcome.

yep, me too mess mess mess, lol Only thing i have found to help is having a bowl of water that the clients can wash hands in. I have a large, shallow wooden bowl that I get my clients to rinse in after the scrub. It still flies about when I am "scrubbing" but washing off rather than rubbing off helps a bit.

your best bet when putting on the scrub is having a big bit of coach roll under there hands so when i've scrubbed it in i put they hands in plastic bags and in the heated mitts then i can just throw the couch roll away with all the scrub wrapped in it, the clients then wash it off in a bowl off warm water, i don't get any on the floor now lol xx

Do you put the hands in the mitts with the scrub on? Not heard of this, does it make the scrub work "deeper" Sorry to question, just sounds like a great idea!:)

yes i do hun not sure with the solar manicure scrub if the heat helps it? but i do think the oils help with the heat, makes the hands really soft,
i use to use the spa manicure stuff and you put on the scrub then a cream which was the activator and then in the bags and mitts so i just did the same with the solar manicure stuff, sorry i know thats not much help xxx

No thats great, makes sense as the scrub so beautifully oily, can imagine that the hands would feel like silk with a bit of heat! Thanks for tip xxx

I do love the product so much i guess its worth the mess!

Ive been using a glass bowl full of warm water to rinse it off, maybe thought of using warm steam towels to remove, or some other way making it a little more luxurious than dipping their hands in a bowl!

maybe im a bit of a perfectionist. :idea:

I use hot towels with the solar manicure.
After using the scrub I wrap the hand/forearm in a hot towel & then scrub the other one.
I can't say that I've found it to be very messy. I usually end up with a few bits on the desk, but not much.

I'm not a skin specialist but I believe heat opens the pores of the skin and cold closes them, so using heated towels/mitts etc would open the pores and help the oil penetrate deeper and quicker, yes? I always use a heated towel after applying and rubbing in solar oil, to finish the service before applying polish.
