Get ready to read all about Rebecca Meyers and Elements Skin Care & Acne Clinic!

  1. What is the name of your business?
    Elements Skin Care & Acne Clinic
  1. Where are you located?
    Anchorage, AK
  1. How long have you been in business?
    9 1/2 years 
  1. What types of esthetic services do you offer?
    I am a certified Acne Specialist and I offer acne consultations and treatments, as well as long-distance acne coaching.  I also offer clinical facial treatments & peels and DermaSound skin resurfacing.
  1. Why did you choose to offer PRIIA to your clients?
    I own an acne clinic and providing the right makeup for my clients is imperative in successfully getting them clear.  If someone is doing everything else appropriate for their skin but still using the wrong makeup (which most makeup is), it keeps them from achieving the results they are working so hard to get.  Before I found PRIIA, I struggled to find a makeup line that met my criteria: didn’t clog, was moisturizing and provided full-coverage for acne-prone skin.  PRIIA is 100% acne-safe and always will be, created by an acne specialist who is highly educated about acne (most manufacturers are NOT educated about acne).  Not only will the entire line NOT clog pores, the ingredients are actually beneficial for the skin: anti-inflammatory, soothing, anti-bacterial, anti-aging and even hydrating.  The PRIIA line has everything my clients are looking for (foundations, concealers, primers, brushes, etc.) and I especially love that the makeup is luxurious as well as completely functional.

  2. What is your favorite PRIIA product and why?
    The foundation creme sticks, hands down!  Being in Alaska, we are constantly combating dry skin issues.  My clients love the dewy and more moisturizing application and finish of a cream versus a powder and it had previously been really difficult for me to find them an acne-safe creamy foundation, let alone one that had such a beautiful, flawless finish.  There are many happy women in Alaska right now!
  1. What do your clients think of the PRIIA minerale-derm line?
    So far, my clients are really happy with the PRIIA minerale-derm line.  I’ve introduced it to all of my new clients, have switched over some existing clients and still have many others to transition into it.  Everyone loves the packaging and convenience of the tubes, is fascinated with the brush-on application technique and really, really loves the finish and coverage of the mineral creme sticks and concealers.  Nearly every single person I apply it to in my office cannot believe how beautiful their skin looks and they purchase it on the spot.  A really common response after application is a disbelieiving, “WOW!”.  Not only is this makeup healthy for the skin, it provides a beautiful finish too- very important with acne.  I’ve had several clients reach out to me on their own to tell me how much they are loving their new makeup- we are all really happy!

Get ready to read all about Teri Eastin and Atlanta Acne Specialists!

  1. What is the name of your business?
    Atlanta Acne Specialists, LLC
  1. Where are you located?
    Atlanta, GA
  1. How long have you been in business?
    2 1/2 years so far.
  1. What types of esthetic services do you offer?
    We see exclusively acne clients, specializing in moderate to severe acne.
  1. Why did you choose to offer PRIIA to your clients?
    I chose Priia because Kelley, PRIIA’s owner, is an acne specialist as well and therefore understands my business and how important the right ingredients in each product are. I love that each ingredient has a reason and purpose for being there; no fillers or junk. It’s all good for the skin, good for acne AND everyone can wear it, not just those suffering with acne. Lastly, I know that the ingredient deck will never change and cause problems for my clients. That’s the biggest obstacle I have with mass produced products. The ingredient deck changes at random so you’ll buy it one time and it’s safe, but the next time it may not be. Oh, and one more thing. Everything is “made to order” so I know the products are fresh and have not been sitting on the shelf in a warehouse for months on end before they reach my office.
  2. What is your favorite PRIIA product and why?
    My favorite Priia product is the loose powder foundation. It literally takes years off of me!! My clients love it because it’s light and looks natural, yet gives great coverage. I love the creme blushes too!
  1. What do your clients think of the PRIIA minerale-derm line?
    My clients love this line because they know it will never cause breakouts. Education is key. I tell them to wear it a few times to give it a real chance. Priia is totally different from any other makeup you have tried. Give it a little time. You will fall in love!!

    Envision Acne & Skin Care Center
  1. Where are you located?

  1. What types of esthetic services do you offer?
    We specialize in teen and adult acne treatments. Our unique Acne Free Skin Program ™ will clear up the skin in 90 days without the use of antibiotics or prescription medications. 
  1. Why did you choose to offer PRIIA to your clients?
    I have been looking for a make up line for years that I can safely offer to my acne clients. We tried many, but never found one that will provide full coverage, is non-comedogenic and is also reasonably priced. Luckily, one day I stumbled upon Priia and decided to give it a try. I was amazed by the coverage of the Loose Mineral Powder Foundation. It looks beautiful on the skin and provides a very natural look. I also love the fact that every single product from the line is 100% acne-safe and non-irritating for sensitive skin types. 
  2. What is your favorite PRIIA product and why?
    My favorite product is the Essential Cover Loose Mineral Foundation in Honey color. It helps even out my skin tone and covers any unwanted pigmentation. My clients always complement on how perfect my skin looks when I’m wearing Priia. In the summer time I like to dust a little Vacation in a Jar Mineral Bronzer over my foundation to achieve a nice bronze finish. 
  1. What do your clients think of the PRIIA minerale-derm line?
    My clients love how the foundation perfectly matches their skin tone. They also get excited about the great selection of acne-safe blushes and bronzers too.

Priia About-2-Pout Lip Glosses are my personal favorite.  They go on silky smooth, no thick sticky feeling, will NOT clog pores around the mouth area and look beautiful! Second favorite would be the Priia Essential Cover Crème Mineral Foundation.  Feels light, looks amazing and clients can’t get enough of it.

7. What do your clients think of the PRIIA minerale-derm line? 
Once clients try Priia they love it!  They appreciate that they can purchase it while they are here and do not have to go out and find fabulous make-up that will not clog their pores and looks so great on.

PRIIA Business Spotlight: Studio Blu Acne Clinic

Get ready to read all about Cora Nelson of Studio Blu Acne Clinic!

  1. What is the name of your business? My brick and mortar location is Studio Blu Acne Clinic; the online store is called Acne Safe Products by Studio Blu. 
  2. Where are you located? San Anselmo, California. It is a quaint town, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, and home to the Star Wars legend, George Lucas. 
  3. How long have you been in business? Two exciting years! 
  4. What types of esthetic services do you offer? I offer exclusive local and long-distance acne coaching, acne safe and acne clearing products; and in-office acne treatments. 
  5. Why did you choose to offer PRIIA to your clients? My clients are all acne sufferers, ranging in age from pre-teen to 70 years old. I choose PRIIA because it is anti-inflammatory, won’t clog pores, and makes the skin glow regardless of the user’s age. Additionally, PRIIA is non-irritating to sensitive skin types, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. The ultimate icing on the cake, however, is that PRIIA is privately-owned by a fellow acne specialist who knows the importance of acne safe makeup ingredients and will not compromise on quality. My clients are always surprised to discover that more than 90 percent of traditional cosmetics and skin care products, including those marketed as natural or non-acnegenic, contain acne-causing ingredients. 
  6. What is your favorite PRIIA product and why?  The ultimate must-have PRIIA product is the foundation. For each of my clients, I offer a color-matching service as part of their initial consultation. Once my client is resting comfortably on the exam table, I strip-test their skin under a professional magnifying makeup lamp. After I find a color match, I apply with PRIIA’s flat-head brush technique; it looks air-brushed when done this way. On one side of the face, I apply PRIIA Essential Cover Loose Mineral, and the other side of the face, I apply the PRIIA Essential Cover Crème Mineral Stick. Then, the magic starts to happen! I have my client sit-up, in front of the large, bright makeup lamp, to observe their skin transformation. Many are amazed at how flawless the foundation makes their skin look. About 80% of the time, my clients end up purchasing both powder and stick, instead of just one or the other, and become repeat customers! With that being said, I absolutely love the entire PRIIA line! 
  7. What do your clients think of the PRIIA minerale-derm line?My clients rave about the quality and coverage of the PRIIA line not only during visits, but also in my Yelp reviews! A recent Yelp reviewer mentioned the PRIIA foundation and exclaimed, “Move over, Kim Kardashian! Our skin can look as flawless as yours, but for a quarter of the price!!” The truth is; they are so right! Many have reported that they are receiving compliments on their skin from co-workers, friends, and family immediately after their first appointment. The minerale-derm line wears beautifully all-day long offering a luminous look, minus the shine. My clients don’t need products that contribute to embarrassing breakouts. They want—and need—products that will continue to make them look and feel amazing; PRIIA does just that!

PRIIA minerale-derm is a line of cosmetics, and a company, that I feel proud to offer our clients at Studio Blu Acne Clinic and AcneSafeProducts.com online store.

PRIIA Business Spotlight: Skin Spa Acne Clinic and Aesthetics

We will be showcasing the FABULOUS businesses who sell the PRIIA minerale-derm line in their salons, spas and acne clinics.  You’ll have an opportunity to get to know these hard-working small business owners and if you’re in their area, please consider contacting them for an appointment.  PRIIA’s wholesale clients are an extremely vital part of our company’s success and we are honored to be a part of their lives!

Congratulations to Kimberlee Hummel of Skin Spa Acne Clinic and Aesthetics!  She is our first client to be featured in the PRIIA Business Spotlight!  *As a side note, Kimberlee’s business just won the ‘Best of State’ in the Cosmetic/Medical Spa Category!

1. What is the name of your business?  Skin Spa Acne Clinic and Aesthetics

2. Where are you located? Murray, Utah – which is just outside of SLC, UT

3. How long have you been in business? I’ve been practicing for 15 years.  I’ve owned Skin Spa for 6 years.

4. What types of esthetic services do you offer?  My main focus is working with acne clients and clients with aging skin.  I do acne treatments, microneedling, chemical peels, facials, microdermabrasion, body sugaring, permanent cosmetics, and eyelash extensions.  I also have significant experience with medical aesthetics, including laser hair removal, sublative laser treatments, and IPL.

5. Why did you choose to offer PRIIA to your clients? I firmly believe that makeup should be an extension of good skin care.  Makeup should add to the overall beauty and health of the skin with pretty, natural- looking coverage.   I had a small line of mineral makeup that I wasn’t totally happy with. When I heard about PRIIA in the summer of 2014, I contacted Kelley and she told me she was reformulating products so that everything in the line would be acne safe.  This was appealing to me as my acne business was quickly growing.  She also told me about all of the incredible anti-inflammatory ingredients PRIIA products would have and that it would be wonderful for my aging clients.  

Most of the work I do is more clinical in nature – including lots of microneedling and chemical peels.  I needed a product line with high quality ingredients for healing skin that also had buildable coverage. 

I placed my first PRIIA order in October and I was so impressed with the products when I received them.  I absolutely love what’s not in PRIIA products as much as I love what is in them.  The customer service from PRIIA is stellar.  Brining PRIIA into my business was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

6. What is your favorite PRIIA product and why? Do I have to choose just one????   I absolutely love the foundation.  Both the crème stick and the loose minerals are beautiful.  I’m partial to the loose minerals.  I was a makeup artist for bareMinerals for a few years and I think high-quality loose minerals are one of the versatile foundation options for all skin types and conditions.  I have the custom blending kit (actually I have 2 of them).  The finish of the loose minerals is just so pretty.  It’s luminous, but not shiny.  I’m 50 years old and people keep asking me what I’m doing differently with my skin and the only change I’ve made in the last 6 months is I started using PRIIA. 

I have to admit I was a little intimidated with the custom blending kit at first because I had zero experience blending.  It sat on my shelf for a few weeks untouched, and I actually called Kelley for a little pep talk.  I was successful at blending the very first time.  The kit makes it sooooo easy.  I’ve made a couple of mis-steps blending, and they were very easily fixed.

7. What do your clients think of the PRIIA minerale-derm line? My clients absolutely love PRIIA.  I had one client tell me she’d “never where that bareMinerals crap again”.  Another was so excited when a sales person at Sephora told her how beautiful her foundation is and asked what brand it is.  One of my acne clients wasn’t clearing because she was using makeup from the drug store.  Every time she came to my clinic, I removed layers of creamy, cakey makeup (uuuggghhh!!!).  I finally got her to try PRIIA.  She sent me a text the next day amazed at how thoroughly it covered her healing acne and so pleased with the finish. Yes – her acne is finally clearing just as I expected it would. I could just go on and on with PRIIA success stories.  Clients of all ages are delighted with the product.

Below is a picture of Kimberlee’s PRIIA display in her clinic.  The next picture is of Kimberlee and her beautiful daughter- both gorgeous ladies are proudly wearing PRIIA!  You can find Kimberlee by using our retail locator here: http://www.priia.com/retail_locations.html
