The long and short of why we love IMAGE Skincare.
Allow me to set a familiar scene…
You find yourself standing alone on a long aisle in a crowded store, shopping basket resting in your elbow, reading label after label on skincare products. All around you are thousands of products, from dozens of brands, all offering the promise of better skin.
“Look 10 Years Younger!”
“Voted BEST Night Cream by blah blah magazine.”
Between hyped up promises on the front of bottles, and long worrisome ingredient lists on the back, it can be overwhelming to choose the best skincare to take home. In some stores, there are sales associates waiting eagerly to help you -- which they’ve told you at least a few times now. Customized recommendations sound great, but do they really know the ins and outs of a thousand or more products in their store? How can they keep up with so many brands, so many variations, so many categories?!
By contrast, Blake has consistently resisted the urge to offer more than one skincare brand for our customers. With a few minor exceptions, our skincare offerings are exclusively products from IMAGE Skincare. Blake has been an authorized reseller of IMAGE Skincare products for over a decade, having first been introduced to the brand while still in esthetics school. In the early days of the spa, he carried a 2nd line of skincare as well, but phased it out before too long.
There’s nothing stopping us from stocking more than one professional skincare brand. There’s also nothing wrong with building a skincare regimen with products from a bunch of different brands. It’s actually very common for a skincare spa to stock multiple professional skincare lines. It’s certainly common for retailers like Blue Mercury, Ulta, Sephora, Target, etc to stock dozens if not hundreds of brands.
However, we are on a mission to provide safe and effective products for our customers, partnering with each of you to help you find your best skin. We have had great success in reaching that goal time and time again by focusing our attention on just IMAGE Skincare. When we stop and think about why this approach has been so successful for our customers, it really comes down to 2 key points. Let’s dive in:
IMAGE Skincare products are unique in an industry overflowing with options. IMAGE Skincare products are professional-grade and highly focused on proven results, safe and clean formulations, and absolute customer satisfaction. IMAGE Skincare products are also priced very favorably for everyday people, in sharp contrast to many other luxury skincare lines which can start to rival your car payment on your monthly budget!
It’s not all about winning awards, but IMAGE Skincare sure has won a lot of them for their products. Some of our best-selling and favorite products from IMAGE are national and international award winners. The tried and true VITAL C hydrating anti-aging serum is a multi-award winner. The PREVENTION+ daily matte moisturizer SPF32 protects your skin while also helping control oil sheen throughout the day, so of course it’s won awards. The Associated Skin Care Professionals Editor’s Choice Award was given to the retinol-based AGELESS total eye lift creme. I could go on for quite a while, but I’ll spare you.
IMAGE Skincare’s continued success is linked intrinsically to being founded by both an Esthetician, Janna Ronert, and her husband Dr. Marc Ronert who is a board certified plastic surgeon & cosmetic chemist. In addition to being a gorgeous power couple, Janna and Marc Ronert have leveraged their complementary skills to build a skincare empire. Janna’s experience as an esthetician is priceless in her role as chairwoman of IMAGE’s board of directors. With unbridled passion and extensive knowledge about the skincare industry, she has helped guide IMAGE to create products that people actually want and need. As a board certified plastic surgeon and cosmetic chemist, Dr. Marc possesses the clinical know-how to bring IMAGE Skincare products to life. Together they share a driving passion to help people “Age Later.”
Every IMAGE Skincare product undergoes stringent testing and 3rd-party clinical trials before coming to market. Great care is taken to ensure their products are formulated to the strictest quality and safety standards in the world with top-shelf ingredients, and they never include controversial synthetic ingredients. Dr. Marc Ronert is from Germany, and Europe is a big market for IMAGE Skincare, so all their products are formulated to meet the higher safety standards of the European Union. Unfortunately, our domestic Food and Drug Administration often falls short of the standards we deserve, so IMAGE’s commitment to stricter standards means you enjoy a better product! Their manufacturing is monitored with highly detailed quality assurance for product consistency, and distribution is handled carefully through a worldwide network of licensed estheticians running independent retail businesses.
To sum it up, IMAGE Skincare produces amazing products, and connects with customers through highly skilled skincare professionals who match clients with products through expert recommendations.
Blake has spent an entire decade as an esthetician learning about IMAGE Skincare products, using them personally, and helping guide thousands of clients in choosing the best cleansers, serums, moisturizers, and more for their skin. IMAGE offers over 100 products, covering a full spectrum of skin types and goals. Blake has experienced every product in the line, and gathered tons of feedback from clients over the years. This ever-expanding knowledge database enables him to provide highly specific recommendations for clients.
Blake’s knowledge of each product is extensive, and he has been working to transfer that knowledge bit by bit to me over the years. Being married and working together, we spend a LOT of time together each day. Almost every day I ask a skincare question that launches a whole discussion. Blake could talk your ear off about pretty much any ingredient, skin concern, or IMAGE product. Because of my inquisitive nature, I love to soak up all the info he shares. My ability to help customers find great products for their specific needs is enhanced by Blake’s focused experience with IMAGE Skincare.
Because our attention is not divided between many brands, we have a fantastic relationship with the women and men running IMAGE Skincare. We’ve partnered with them time and time again on projects, attended in person and virtual classes with their team, bumped into them at trade shows, and more! The benefits of this strong business partnership trickle down to our customers. We can personally attest to the passion and commitment the team at IMAGE Skincare has for their customers.
In short, rather than being a jack of all brands, we’ve decided to be a master of one. As a result of this choice, our customers experience enhanced recommendations and results. At the end of the day, happy customers make us happy!
