With the disheartening events that have happened this week, we thought everyone could use a little SIRCUIT® inSPAration right about now!!

“SIRCUIT®SKIN Cool Aid is a slam-dunk product for the warmer months ahead. It’s a versatile face gel—a cooling aftershave, lightweight moisturizer and anti-ager, that’s crafted using USDA certified organic ingredients.
“The sky blue gel, which is actually more like a juicy cream (and one that might be really fun to swim in) absorbs quickly, goes on matte and, unlike most face gels, doesn’t leave your skin with the traction of scotch tape. The scent is light, fresh and is made with essential oils that also pack a punch with purpose—anti-septic/ anti-inflammatory lavender and protective tea tree and orange peels. It won’t clog your pores, irritate skin, sweat off into your eyes or make you feel like you’ve got a layer of shellac on your face. The entire ingredient list, which includes organic aloe vera, marine extracts, arnica flower, argan oil, vitamin E, Japanese mint and a trove of peptides is a skincare aficionado’s equivalent to poetry.
“Especially when you start to look at the quality of said composition— SIRCUIT® has made a name for themselves by using something called “chirally correct” forms of their ingredients. The concept of “chiral” can get science- nerd really quick, and you’re free to read more here, here or here, but in simple English, it’s a chemical-free technology that primes an ingredient’s molecules to be optimally received by your body’s skin cells. So the stuff inside the tube is more than just all naturally derived, it’s been hand crafted to near perfection.
“While any guy will find the Cool Gel useful, it’s especially helpful if you’ve got oily skin, sensitive or blemish prone skin. And a bonus—the formula is super concentrated so you get a few month’s worth in a TSA friendly 1 fl. oz sized bottle—so you can double Cool Aid up as your sun relief when you jaunt off to far flung beaches this summer.” - Written by Matt Bell

“Once I tried your ‘Made Better’ back bar products, I knew that my services would never be the same… they were ‘Made Better”! My clients are so happy; my services are now more advanced yet somehow more simple to perform; and I can say that my business has been ‘Made Better’ too!” –Danielle B., Spa Owner

“Over the years Sircuit has proven itself to be one of the best companies out there. I work with Maureen in the main office and her knowledge was unbelievable in helping us make the transition to these new made better products so easy. You guys thought of everything from extensive sampling to new ingredient technologies and updated protocols. This is how it should be done. All of this while, she was continuing to help me focus on making my spa profitable. You guys have really been a great partner to us and I want to extend a big congratulation to the whole Sircuit team! Thank you.” –Elizabeth D., Spa Owner
“I would like to extend my gratitude and send over a big Congrats to SIRCUIT on an amazing year. Our Spa started with SIRCUIT over 3 years ago and I have to say they really stepped it up with the new Made better program. Everything we liked before was improved and the new products that they introduced are already huge client favorites. Infusion A retinol serum is a must!”–Cathy S., Esthetician
Everywhere we turn lately there seems to be someone with a case of the sniffles. And … while SIRCUIT® can’t help you avoid those nasty cold & flu viruses that are in abundance this time of year, we can at least help to make them a bit more bearable with today’s skincare tip of the day.
Skincare Tip of the Day: To prevent the dry, red, flaky skin around your nose that inevitably follows a runny nose, apply a protective barrier balm, such as Sircurity™ to the delicate skin around your nose.
Applying a thin layer of Sircurity™ l repair and recovery balm at the first sniffle (use a cotton swab to avoid contamination), will help to:
- Relieve dryness, discomfort, and irritation
- Suppress inflammation & promote healing
- Calm redness and soothe irritation
- Hydrate and prevent peeling, chapped skin
As an added bonus, Sircurity™ contains Pau D’Arco & Gotu Kola, which provide anti-viral & anti-microbial properties (LOVE that)!! Just remember … apply immediately, and re-apply often for best results.
‘Tis the season for the “Best Of” lists for 2012!! From MTV’s “Best Songs Of 2012” to Huffington Post’s “Best Tweets (by Women) of 2012”, we love them all. But … nothing warms our heart more than when our very own SIRCUIT® must-haves make the cut!
By now you’ve seen I. Cee. U.™+ on GQ’s 10 Favorite Grooming Products of 2012 list (WooHoo!!). Well, we just got word that our best-selling problem skin cleanser, Savior™+ has made Hotsy Totsy Beauty’s list Fave Finds of 2012!!
Tell us, what SIRCUIT® products made your “Best Of” list for 2012?
Please Note: In Observance of the holiday, SIRCUIT®’s Offices Will Be Closed Saturday, December 22nd through Wednesday, December 26th.
Maybe it’s the spirit of the holidays, or just the buzz of our amazing SIRCUIT® addicts in the air, but you guys have been exceptionally awesome lately.
And … these inspiring comments, from a holiday giveaway we did recently with MySweetGreens.com, were no exception.
Thanks guys for Making Our Day!!
According to Allure magazine’s Beauty Reporter, “dermatologists tell us that face oils (plant-based, not mineral) offer intense hydration; makeup artists rave about how they leave skin fresh and glow-y but not greasy”.
Still need a reason to try one? Check out our take on Allure’s top five renegade uses for face oil, featuring none other than SIRCUIT®’s very own Lavish™ l multi-use therapeutic dry oil, below:
1. Even if it’s not labeled ‘cleansing oil,’ any face oil will gently remove waterproof mascara, long-wearing eye shadow, and lipstick with just a few swipes. And it won’t strip the skin.
2. Rich fatty-acid oils (Lavish™ contains a whopping 9) that are easily absorbed by skin are also easily absorbed by hair. Hairstylist Guido suggests smoothing a drop over parched ends or unruly bangs to tame frizz and flyaways.
3.Adding oil to any cream or liquid foundation will make it more hydrating and more sheer, so you can get away with the shade you wore all summer even if it starts to look a little dark.
4. Many of these skin treatments contain jasmine, sandalwood, and lavender essential oils-scents you’d find in many fragrances. Dab one on your wrists like perfume.
5. For a natural-looking highlighter, tap a bit of oil onto cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the shoulders after you finish your makeup, says makeup artist Quinn Murphy.
With 9 precious botanical oils (Grape Seed Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Organic Borage Oil, Arctic Cranberry Oil, Cloudberry Oil, Bitter Almond Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Calophyllum Inophyllum Oil, Neem Oil) and a sweet almond scent that is to die for, Lavish™ l multi-use therapeutic dry oil fits the bill on all points. Combine that with gorgeous packaging and Lavish™ makes an excellent gift for the holidays!!

With this week’s conclusion, we bring you the end of our 3 part series of “33 Surprising Things That Ruin Skin”, as seen on RealBeauty.com. Happy Friday SIRCUIT® Addicts!!
Dear Sugar, it’s not you, it’s me… I’ll miss you! We know breaking up is hard to do, but keep in mind when you intake excess sugar it hurts the collagen nestled in your skin leaving you with sag. Fight your sweet tooth with organic fruits like pineapple or mango.
Time to Hit the Gym
Exercise seems to be the cure for almost everything these days and rightfully so! Exercising helps to increase blood flow and give your face a healthy glow. In addition, it also cleans the body of toxins which are expelled during perspiration and cleanses dead skins cells allowing new ones to grow. Without regular exercise you may see an increase in age spots, so lace up those sneakers and hit the pavement.
Clean as a Whistle
With all the harsh chemicals and toxins out there these days, it’s hard to know when you’re safe and when you’re not. To avoid skin irritation, take the plastic off your dry cleaning as soon as you get home, allowing the clothes to breath. The longer the plastic stays on your threads, the more chemicals are absorbed.
Left Arm Letdown
The seat-belt tan may be a girl’s biggest pet peeve in the summer months, but what you don’t know is that those sunburns on your arm add up! Since your left arm is always exposed to more sun when driving, make sure to lather up with extra sun block on that side. The same rules apply to those who are riding in the passenger seat with their right arm exposed.
Put a Cork In It
Just one more reason why you’ll want to put the bottle down — You know how being hung-over makes you want to chug a huge water bottle? Well it does the same for skin. Drinking too much alcohol can dehydrate your skin leaving it quenched for moisture. Without that moisture you are more prone to wrinkles and dryness.
Bad news for all your spa buffs out there. Keep your sauna and steam room usage to a minimum. These spa treats can cause sagging (as they break down elasticity and natural collagen in the skin) over time.
If you’re an ‘AC’ junkie like us during the summer months, this tip will probably catch you off guard. Instead of cranking up the cool air, turn your air conditioner down, giving your skin extra moisture. If your cooling unit is always blaring, you’re stripping the air of humidity and moisture your skin needs.
We all know smoking is bad for you… make that very, very, bad for you; but did you know second hand smoke can be harmful to your skin? While you may not smoke, being around smokers can cause skin sagging and speed up the wrinkle process? Just one more reason to steer clear of nicotine.
Leaving the house without makeup on may feel like you’re walking around naked for a few minutes, but after awhile it’s kind of refreshing! Allowing your skin to breathe will help prevent clogged pores and breakouts while avoiding premature aging. So take a walk on the wild side - ditch your makeup every now and then.
Over tweezing brows can cause major damage to your skin, not to mention the overall shape and look of your face. When tweezing, always remember to wash tweezers with antibacterial soap beforehand. Prep skin by placing a hot towel over the area to open up your pores and soothe post tweeze by using an aloe lotion to avoid ingrown hairs.
