It's Friday again and time for me to share something I love so maybe you can love it too. It's time for Friday Fun Finds!
Today I want to tell you about a new (to me) product line that I am now in ♥LOVE♥ with. It's called Pevonia Botanica. It's a skin care line that has saved me from a face full of horror.
I've always had sensitive skin or so I thought. The last six months has changed my perception of what sensitive skin really is.
Before, my face was needy. If I used something with too much moisture, I would break out. If it wasn't hydrating enough my face would get flakey and red. No matter what product I used to clean, my skin would always feel tight and shiney afterwards. But if I didn't use something that cleaned enough, it was a sure bet I would be a walking pimple.
I tried products like Proactive but it made my face hurt so bad I had to stop. When I finally found Mary Kay it seemed my face had been saved. I loved the Timewise products so much I decided to become a Consultant so I could offer these fantastic products to my friends and family.
Then, within the last year or so my face slowly started changing. I figure it must have something to do with all the other crazy things I have going on. Whatever the cause, my face skin got so bad it was one big rash. I tried everything to get it to clear up (it wasn't just blemishes but an actual rash) including steriod creams and cortizone cream.
Then I found Pevonia. The cleanser is so gentle you would swear it wasn't actually cleaning anything let alone remove make up and sweaty grime (yes, I did just admit to having a sweaty, grimey face). But it cleans better than most products I have tried. How do I know? Two ways: 1. I haven't broken out since I started using it and 2. When I used a cotton pad to apply the toner afterwards nothing comes off. The pad is just as clean afterwards as it was before I used it. Finally, I don't even use a lotion anymore. I use an oil. Can you believe it? I put an oil on my face. They have lotions (my personal favorite being the oil control cream which I do use occasionaly) but my skin feels better and my makeup applys better when I use the oil.
Not only is it gentle (I use the sensitive line but they do have several options including an anti-aging line to choose from) but it's easier to use than regular skin regimines. Here's why. Most of the time you have to get your face wet, apply the cleanser, then rinse it off. For me this would always result in a wet mirror and bathroom counter. With Pevonia you apply it dry or with just wet hands. Rub it over your face, avoiding your eyes (Mary Kay Oil Free Eye-Makeup Remover is still the king of kings when it comes to eye makeup remover). Then, either wipe it off with a wet wash cloth or get your hands wet and rub your face one or twice. I mean, barely have to get it wet. Since it doesn't suds up it just melts off. Then, you can either use a cotton pad to apply the tonor to balance out your skins PH or since it comes in a spray/mist bottle, you can spray it directly on your face. Then, one or two quirts of oil rubbed in (again, avoiding your eye area) and your done. I even put the oil over my lips because it feels so good.
I've been using it for almost two months now and my face has never looked or felt better. The best part? It's not insanely expensive. The sensitive line is one of the lower priced ones out of all the selections but the others aren't over priced considering what you get. You can get Pevonia online at several different websites or a local spa might sell it. I've gotten mine both at my spa and from an online retailer.
Out of 5 Diamonds I am giving it the FULL 5 DIAMONDS!! For the ease of use, results, and price.
