Nationally-recognized as “The 3rd Best Spa in America” by The Industry Source, Pittsburgh’s skincare institution will open the Day BEFORE Thanksgiving on Wednesday Night to start the shopping with its iconic Cardapalooza Buy One Get One Deal and a host of other special deals.

 

“Black Friday has always been our biggest event of the year,” said Eva Kerschbaumer, Founder, CEO and Esthetic Director for ESSpa Kozmetika. “This is our 12th year and our Black Wednesday BOGO Event is designed so more and more customers can take advantage of these special deals. This year we’re really pulling out all the stops so everyone can save big $$, have fun and be healthy.”

 

In the past, ESSpa Kozmetika opened its doors in the earlier morning on Black Friday. For 2013, Eva and her husband Scott will open the doors The Day BEFORE Thanksgiving on Wednesday November 27th to provide this unique healthy BOGO opportunity to more people than ever before. “We asked our guests what they would prefer,” said Scott Kerschbaumer, COO and Director of Marketing. “We set up an online poll and responded to our customers’ request to do something different, to not interrupt Turkey Dinner, to open earlier than past years. Beginning at 8PM, when someone buys a Gift Card, we will give them an additional 100% Bonus Gift Certificate.”

 

According to the Owners and customers of previous ESSpa BOGO Events, there are no limits to how much (or how little) a customer can spend. For instance, if someone buys a $1000 Gift Card they will receive an additional $1000 Certificate for FREE. Or, if someone buys a $25 Gift Card they will receive a Free $25 Bonus Certificate. It is an honest-to-goodness, 100%, 1 for 1 match.

 

ESSpa Kozmetika will offer other special Gift Card deals on Black Friday when the spa opens for regular hours at 10am. The Kerschbaumers also said that 25 customers will also have the ability to purchase Buy One Get One Free Spa Club Memberships – allowing the lucky purchasers to save thousands of dollars and enjoy a full year of treatments for a fraction of their regular price.

 

ESSpa will continue to have additional sales throughout Black Friday that will continue until the close of business at 8pm for purchasers of standard Gift Cards and their exclusive organic creams, masks and serums – and new for 2013 will be specials deals on recycled, eco-chic items.

 

When asked why someone would visit a dayspa at 11pm, Mr. Kerschbaumer said “When you can come out to a local dayspa, spend $100 and walk out with hundreds of dollars worth of Free Bonus Certificates, that is a deal worth staying up for!”

 

IMPORTANT EVENT DETAILS:

 

Only a limited number of people will be allowed to take advantage of this DEAL. Please plan to arrive early to ensure you are allowed to enter and participate – Don’t get left out in the cold!

 

NOTE* If you have RSVP’d here – you are guaranteed admission, so don’t worry.

Complimentary Refreshments and Entertainment will be provided for your enjoyment.
You must visit the spa in person to take advantage of this offer.  Be sure to study obscure 1980’s pop music and movies to win Scott’s random trivia contests.

 

Please note that you cannot use existing Gift Cards to make BOGO Event purchases.
Those wishing to spend $1000 or more and those interested in Spa Club Memberships will receive special consideration and should call us for details.

 

Call 412-782-3888 for more information. We look forward to seeing you, you are the best customers and we truly appreciate your support!

 

Spa You Soon,

Why Beauty Products with Liposomes Don’t Work.

We spend considerable time, money and effort researching how to make all of the skincare products that we use in our Spa Treatments as effective as possible. One of the most unique (and costly) products are called Biopeptix Cosmeceuticals. Not only are the the most effective creams, serums, masks and exfoliants we have ever found – ESSpa Kozmetika is the Exclusive North American Master Training Center for Biopeptix.
 
Read the following for just one major reason why Biopeptix products are so different (read – BETTER) than any other OTC skin care product out there.
 

 

Liposomes Don’t Live Up to Beauty Hype

Beauty Products with Liposomes Don’t Work



Posted by ThirdAge.com on February 20, 2013

Don’t believe the hype: liposomes, which are often included in beauty products because they can supposedly alter the skin’s structure, really can’t do that.


Liposomes, small capsules of fat, are said to transport themselves deep into the skin, releasing  substances that rejuvenate and hydrate, leading to a structural alteration in skin. But researchers from the University of Southern Denmark discovered that liposomes, far from getting deep under the skin, sometimes don’t even get past the skin’s surface.


“We have shown that liposomes are destroyed before they enter the skin or very soon after,” researcher Luis Bagatolli said in a statement.  He also said that liposomes are not the “efficient carriers” they are supposed to be.


To reach that conclusion, the researchers used the technique RICS (Raster Imaging Correlation Spectroscopy) to see what liposomes do when they’re applied to the skin. Bagatolli said that previous studies using another technique had indicated that liposomes didn’t do what they were said to do. But this study, he said, established that definitively.


The findings, published in the journal Investigative Dermatology, came as no surprise to the researchers.


“The human skin is designed to prevent external components to enter the human body,” Bagatolli said. “It is natural that it also prevents liposomes to enter.”


So how does this relate to Biopeptix? BECAUSE, all Biopeptix Products use Fullerenes as their method of encapsulation. Fullerenes are unique and different because they are a carbon based, spherical, transdermal delivery system that are able to penetrate through the skin’s outer layers allowing the active ingredients to be more readily absorbed and put to use by your body.


I love it when real clinical trials confirm the science that makes Biopeptix Cosmeceutical Products so amazingly effective.

What Monsters are lurking in your Refridgerator

Things In Your Fridge You Should Throw Away Immediately

Thank you to Kitchen Daily, which is where this article was originally posted on 5/5/13

For many of us, there are things hiding in our fridge that we dare not unearth, from cloudy Tupperware shoved at the back of the fridge to the unidentifiable object in our produce drawer. Spring is the perfect time to clean out your refrigerator and take a closer look at what exactly you’re stocking up on, and you may find that some items you don’t normally think twice about may actually be hazardous to your health. Whether to practice safe food storage or to adopt a healthier lifestyle, we’ll show you seven hidden hazards in your refrigerator that you should throw out immediately.

So the Scary thing is here – open that fridge (or pantry) door and see how many things on this list are in there right now. 99% of us have at least 1 or more of these things in our homes and we consume them all the time. And even though I own an organic spa and was raised on an organic farm (my dad still has his organic farm in Hungary) I usually have some of these items every week. Why? Because they are convenient and I am always too busy to think about the consequenses of my choices. Hmmmm, now that I think about it, perhaps I should listen to Scott more as he is constantly wanting to eat out more often than not.
 
STAY SAFE and EDUCATE YOURSELF. Because Beauty is more than Skin Deep.
 

6 ‘Gee Thanks’ Mothers Day Gifts

I would like to thank for providing this wonderful article that I am pleased to share.

“Silk flowers? A ceramic pot? Heated socks? Oh and you’d like me to make Mother’s Day Breakfast? Thanks?” On Sunday, May 9th, these woes will be echoed from Moms across America. We’re not saying you should go broke to show your affection, but at least make an effort. We asked some of our favorite mommy bloggers which Mother’s Day gift they DO NOT WANT, despite the delusional marketers’ beliefs that it’s “perfect for all moms!” Hilarious, but truthful answers below.

HINT: MOM REALLY JUST WANTS TO GO TO A SPA, so get her a Gift Card for that massage, facial or mani-pedi she so desires. No risk, all kisses! Ship, email or print – now thru Mother’s Day.

And my Mother’s Day gift to them that hopefully they WILL love:

 

As seen on TV… again and again and again

It happens every Valentines Day, Christmas, and Mother’s Day: Chain jewelry stores over-advertise one specific thing, touting how inexpensive it is. Who wants to get this? You’ve seen the ads for weeks, you know your significant other spent exactly zero brain cells deciding to buy this thing, you know it’s cheap, and worst of all you know that a ton of women with sucky men are opening up the same exact gift.

Mothers Day Link Love: Best Mom Advice

 

Oh… you want me to clean something?

Cleaning products like vacuums and items for the house such as printers & gadgets (unless it’s especially for her like an ipod touch or an iPad) that they claim are “perfect” for mom’s on Mother’s Day. Some people don’t know that Mother’s Day is just that – for the mother, not the house or anything else.

Mothers Day Link Love: New York mom blogs

 

That’s pretty… pretty trashy

I got an email from SimpleHuman the other day promoting trash cans, paper towel holders, and recycling bins as Mother’s Day gifts. I think their products are beautifully designed, but a trash can for Mother’s Day? What better way to say I love you than here’s a place to throw out trash!

Mother’s Day Link Love: family money saving tips

 

Painful to the hair follicles… and the heart

One of the Mother’s Day gifts I would never want is a waxing kit (either at home or at a spa). Yes, husbands might think that’s a sure fire way of getting “private time”, but whenever I see highly marketed waxing kits: I wince! Call me crazy, but sheering pain and being “detailed” like his favorite car doesn’t say “Thank you Mom” as much as a Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy and a cold pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

Heartfelt poetry… by someone else

Can I be frank?  I absolutely do not like getting those pre-made poetry plaques that gift stores sell! All they do is collect dust and really, don’t mean a whole lot more than, “I had to find something that said ‘MOM’…”. Now, when my son wrote a poem for me and my husband had it engraved in a plaque, I thought that was pretty sweet and I’ll treasure it always!

–Tammy, amominredhighheels.com

Want it… but save it for another holiday

Although most of us would love to own a super awesome Dyson, I think that if my husband got me one for Mother’s Day, he’d be putting on an apron and demonstrating it’s uses in front of the camera for the whole bloggosphere to see!

Mother’s Day Link Love: advice for working moms

 

Here’s an idea: get her a gift that would never end up on this list… an ESSpa Kozmetika Gift Card. They’re on sale right now, and you can print them instantly. They’re redeemable 365 days a year, and they never expire! Just visit http://www.ESSPA.net right now to see all of our special spa packages that your Mom will LOVE!

The Best Mother’s Day Gift in Pennsylvania: Professional Massage Therapy

The Best Mother’s Day Gift: A Professional Massage

 

My family and I recently moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I had been suffering of lower back pain for a while. Therefore, I went to the doctor and had an X-ray. I had developed osteoarthritis in my spine. Well, at least now I knew the cause of the pain.

A couple of months later, my son surprised me with one of the best gifts ever on Mother’s Day. He took me to a popular, local Spa to get one of their famous therapeutic massages.

The atmosphere was relaxing, cozy, and friendly. The owners and their staff greeted us very cordially. Afterwards, they took me to a private room and did a short interview to find out about my health history (allergies, ailments, pain) and needs. They informed me that all of their masseuses were highly trained, certified, and permanent staff members. Then, they proceeded to tell me about the various types of massages available to me, each designed to address different goals.

First, they told me about their Hungarian Honey massage. This type of massage has amazing effects in the body. It helps eliminate toxins, moisturizes, nourishes, and cleans the skin, improves blood circulation, relaxes the nervous system, boosts the metabolism, reduces cellulite, enhances the immune system, and relieves chronic exhaustion.

Then, they introduced me to the Swedish massage, which is done all over your body to ease tension, increase circulation, and relax you.

They offer many other types for different purposes such as hot stone, reflexology, trigger point, maternity, head, neck, and shoulder, and deep tissue sport massages. They all sounded divine to me. That is where things became a bit difficult for me because after learning about their variety and purposes, I wanted to have them all! Yet, I had to choose one.

I decided to have the Hungarian honey massage. The masseuse took me to her room and, after giving me the time to undress and wrap a soft towel around; she began to rub my body gently with honey focusing on my lower back. I immediately began to feel the effects and relief.

There is no doubt that this massage at ESSpa in Pittsburg was the best Mother’s Day gift I have had in years. Schedule a Mother’s Day massage treatment at Esspa Kozmetika Organic Skincare for your mother today. Just use their convenient online form at www.esspa.net . She’ll love it!

Stop Senate Bills S.3767 and S.510 – Protect Fresh, Local Food Choice

Listen up friends. I usually do not make a such a post but this issue is simply too important and the potential long-term harm if nothing is done is too great. We are not paranoid but something is going on in the US Senate that you need to know about right away.

On Thursday, September 23rd, 2010, the United States Senate will officially consider Legislation that if passed will restrict your access to fresh, locally produced, non-GMO, organic food (these Bills will effectively put small, local family farms out of business and subject the farmers to criminal penalties and/or jail). This Legislation (Bills S.3767 and S.510) will also determine whether we can easily find natural vitamins & supplements – and will potentially make natural health cures a crime.

The Senate is close to passing these pieces of Legislation which will end our freedom of food choice by having the FDA follow International standards (e.g., Codex Alimentarius) to restrict our local farmers and degrade our food. The Senate Judiciary Committee will consider these restrictive Bills on Thursday, September 23, 2010.

I am urging you to tell your Senators to VOTE NO by clicking the link below like I have already and then share this post and link as fast as you can with everyone you can. Explain the situation to them and ask them to take these actions for their households and then send this to their contacts, and so on. Thank you for caring about your health and our common right to fresh, healthy food. Click Here to send a letter to your Senator NOW!

Pittsburgh Entrepreneurs Turn Teachers For Duquesne Business Growth Conference

On June 10th, more than 40 of the region’s most successful entrepreneurs and business experts will gather to share advice and stories with more than 450 attendees at the 12th annual Entrepreneur’s Growth Conference at Duquesne University. The event is one of the largest entrepreneurship events in Pennsylvania and features the region’s top entrepreneurs, workshops on the hottest topics in business and a vast array of business-building resources.

Ed Stack, CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc., and Roger Byford, CEO of Vocollect, will headline the event as keynote speakers. One of the event’s 15 workshop features a trip of headline-making entrepreneurs who will share how they’re grown their businesses and some of their biggest mistakes. J.C. Carter, President of Wrecking Crew Media, Scott Kerschbaumer, CEO of ESSpa Kozmetika & Spa 101 and Galadriel Strauser, Owner of Simply Clean are teaming up to lead Inspirational Success Stories from Entrepreneurs on the Rise.

The 14 other featured workshops are designed to help attendees (from start-up through growth stages) lower business taxes and increase sales, turn their new product ideas into a business, raise capital, turn their website into their #1 seller, leverage search engines and social networks to find customers, protect business investments, building wealth, use advertising, networking and digital PR for growth and much more.

“Our attendees have come to expect keynote speakers of the highest caliber and this year will be no exception. They are true pioneers in their respective industries,” says Dr. Mary T. McKinney, director of Duquesne’s Small Business Development Center and lead organizer of the event.

One of the event’s most popular features is the Business Building Tradeshow & Networking Mixer that provides the opportunity for attendees to meet representatives from more than 40 of the region’s entrepreneurial support organizations, see hands-on demonstrations and helpful products and services, and visit the Capital Corner, a section dedicated to helping entrepreneurs find funding.
