IS Clinical Active Serum in the news!

Previously featured in Allure, Marie Claire and Lucky magazines (beauty bibles) and now:

Yahoo! STYLE interviews model turned actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who says her secret is using IS Clinical’s Active Serum religiously.

THE BEAUTY MARK Bloggers report this serum sparked their desire to write their posts.  After using this serum, their skin has never looked or felt better.  It has ingredients that work for both fast acting and long term results.  The botanicals in the serum don’t dry the skin, and the active ingredients produce a cool tingling sensation upon contact.  This serum is excellent for acne, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, uneven texture and large pores.  Basically, it’s the end-all-be-all of serums!

SKININC (Business, Treatments, Science) titles their article “Inspiration:  Adult Acne” – The fast acting Active Serum helps to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone, and treat acne without drying or irritating the skin.

Active Serum is available at Indulge Salon and Spa.

Indulge Salon highlighted as a dog-friendly White Bear Lake business

From SidewalkDog.com</strong>
“Indulge is a salon, so legally, only my service dog pals are allowed inside. I must, however, give these folks my first-ever honorable mention because they still love and cater to dogs! They have a water bowl in front of the store that is extra high for bigger dogs (hear that, danes?) and will take out the smaller bowl for the little guys (you with me, chihuahuas?) They also have dog treats, so any dog that walks by the salon gets a treat — whether they are ‘leashed to a client or not’ — and dogs are welcome to stop inside the front door for a treat, a pet, and kind words.”
