Introducing Pevonia Botanica!

Christmas201400002

I was recently introduced to a new luxury skincare line called Pevonia. I’ve been using the line for about a month now, and I’ll be reviewing the products I’ve tried over the next couple weeks. To start, I’d like to give you a quick intro into the brand:

As a worldwide leader in professional skincare, Pevonia was the first company to develop a Spa Skincare Line exclusively for elite spas and Professional Aestheticians. Our products launched in 1991 fully recognizing that the most effective skincare ingredients can be found in the safest source on earth, in nature. By combining effective, safe and natural ingredients with decades of experience in professional skincare, Pevonia continues to be the global leader in skin rejuvenation and health.

First: Phyto-Gel Cleanser ($41.00)

Foam away impurities! Enticingly aromatic, Pevonia’s Phyto-Gel Cleanser provides a delightful natural soft lather for deep cleansing. Saponaria, Rosemary, Lemon, and Pine precisely blend to rid your skin of impurities and surface toxins. Non-alkaline and non-drying, this gel is suited for all skin types.

I’ve been using this cleanser every morning in my shower – and I absolutely love it. I need a soft, gentle cleanser that will not only clean my skin, but remove all my excess makeup. This cleanser is just the product to cover all my needs. It doesn’t dry my skin out – it leaves it feeling clean and refreshed!

Second: Combination Skin Lotion ($30.50)

Refresh and brighten! Pevonia’s alcohol-free Combination Skin Lotion helps you face the day with balanced, radiant skin by combining Aloe for its hydrating benefits with Lactic Acid for its oil-control capability.

I follow up the cleanser with this safe and gentle lotion. This is a lotion for combination skin, which is exactly what I have. My skin is neither dry nor oily, and this lotion hits the nail on the head. After using this product, my skin does not feel heavy, or greasy as is sometimes the case with face lotion.

I am really impressed with this line that I hadn’t heard about until they sent me these products. I was not paid for this post, the opinions are 100% mine.

This collection focuses on renewing your dry, unmanageable curls to transforming and training your curls to spiral into long-lasting perfection, Carol’s Daughter has used the super-softening, rich Marula oil. Marula Oil is a rare ingredient, harvested in South Africa, bringing moisture and nourishment to curls for 12,000 years.

The Marula Curl Therapy Collection is formulated to deeply rejuvenate each curl so they are trained to always be what you want them to be: soft, shiny and beautifully free.

A must have for the dry winter weather. I have naturally curly hair that is also very fine so products that can tame the curls usually weigh my hair down leaving it looking limp or greasy. That is until Marula Oil Softening Serum. The oil is so lightweight just a few drops and it hydrates my curls and leaves them frizz free without weighing them down.

My curls have been so great since using this product I started to think it was my hair. Then I forget to finish with a bit of the oil one day. And let me tell you it wasn’t my hair that’s awesome, without the oil by midday I looked like Animal from the Muppets. Oh and it also has the most soft and wonderful rose smell that makes my hair smell gorgeous. If you have curly hair prone to winter frizz be sure to check this one out.

Marula Oil Softening Serum ($18.00): With the star ingredient of Marula Oil, curls will transform into glossy, spiral curls making it easy to soothe and shine on instant.

Marula-Diffusing-Styling-Lotion

 

I love this so much I want to sleep with it under my pillow. Anyone with curly hair knows the fight to make naturally curly hair look good for more the 30 minutes. The new Marula Diffusing & Styling Lotion is just what the doctor ordered.

The lotion is light and smells like heaven. A small dollop and I just scrunch it into my curls after showering. This works for heat or air drying and leaves my curls silky smooth and with bounce. If you hit your local store and they are sold it it’s because I am stocking up so I never run out.

Marula Diffusing & Styling Lotion ($20.00): Conditioning Marula Oil and moisture-enhancing Almond Oil leave hair hydrated, healthy, and super shiny.

 

marula after

Now my hair usually has some clumps of curls and the rest goes straight or just wonky. This is my hair after I used a dollop of Marula Styling and let it air dry. Not fancy tricks no multi step process. Once its completely dry I warm a drop of the Marula oil in my hands and gently scrunch up into my curls. And my curls are left soft and bouncy and they last and last and last. The best part I can put my hair up in a bun then take it down and the curls are still great!

After trying these two fantastic products I will definitely be checking out these other items:

Marula-Hair-Mask

Marula Softening Hair Mask ($24.00): Rejuvenate your hair with this Marula Oil based mask, this rehydrates every strand and gives the extra moisture you need.

Marula-Gentle-Cream-Cleanser

Marula Gentle Cream Cleanser ($18.00): Manage your curls by pampering them with this rich, gentle cream cleanser.
