Does the word “peel” scare you?

Pevonia Australia Micro Retinol Peel Organic Skincare SPA Clinica Pro Does the word “peel” scare you? Does hearing it make you fret like it’s going to devour every inch of your face in a minute and make you look like a red tomato? That feeling is normal and I do understand why because after a peel using retinol skin care some years back, I felt horrible too. Until…

Pevonia’s SPA Clinica Pro Micro-Retinol came. Everyone in the office went gaga over it and the range became an instant favourite, being dubbed as the best retinol product range to date! Everyone, including the press, our partner spas and salons, and those who have immediately bought online, have expressed their satisfaction and after thinking about it for a long time, I bravely said, “I have to try it!” After weeks of using this new range, I was satisfied with the end result. Here’s what you can expect from this range:

Like other skincare with retinol, the Pevonia SPA Clinica Micro-Retinol is:

✓ Smoothing
✓ Firming
✓ Brightening
✓ Anti-aging

How different is this range from its predecessor?

✓ same results minus the obvious flaking, itchiness, redness and burning sensation (whew!)
✓ unlike the regular retinol that is photo sensitive, micro-retinol is safe to use daily, morning and evening (Remember to apply Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 in the morning. We also highly recommend this 5-in-1 ELES Age-Defying BB Cream with SPF 30)
✓ safe for pregnant women (it won’t harm your baby)
✓ may be used to treat stretch mark post pregnancy

Pevonia Australia Micro Retinol Peel Organic Skincare SPA Clinica Pro

Before Pevonia’s SPA Clinica Pro Micro-Retinol, I never wanted to have retinol treatments because of that one unforgettable experience when I had to go to work with dry skin shedding off my face, like a sloughing snake. The ads never told me anything about the ugly part of the process. The models said retinol products are the secret to having clear, brightened face but I wasn’t informed that I had to undergo such long downtime, not to mention the itchiness and burning sensation I felt. The end result was great though but I swore to myself I will never try to “peel” again.

Pevonia introduced me to the world of organic skin care and my eyes glimmered in excitement, wanting to try them all (you know, the shop till you drop kind of thing!). I am happy with my essential skincare routine and this new micro-retinol range just makes this brand so hard to beat!

If you don’t have this range yet, I am telling you… You have to try this!
Zero Downtime. Zero Sting! I’m amazed!

How to Use Enzymo-Sphérides Peeling Cream

Our Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream is a firm favourite among Pevonia fans. It’s like a facial in a jar – eliminating impurities, blackheads, dead cells, sebum, and toxins to leave you with softer, brighter and clearer skin.
It contains Pineapple and Papaya Enzymes Spherides for deep cleansing as well as Gingko, Calendula, Chamomile, Lemon, Horse Chestnut and Arnica for calming, soothing, brightening and healing benefits. It is gentle enough to use twice a week and is the perfect way to keep your skin looking its best between spa visits.

To get the most from this product, you do need to put in a little extra effort but it is beyond worth it when you see the incredible results.
Here we take you through the steps so you can see how this extraordinary product works…
1. Cleanse and tone the skin then blot dry to remove any surface dirt, oil and makeup. This will ensure the peel is able to work deep into the layers of the epidermis.
2. Apply a layer of Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream all over your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. It’s best to leave about half an inch around the eyes to protect the delicate skin.
3. Wet your fingers with warm water and gently work the product into the skin. You do not need much water at this stage, you’re not trying to wash the product away! At this stage the enzymes which are encapsulated in micro-spherides, are becoming active and digesting all impurities, sebum and toxins in the skin.
4. After about two minutes you will notice the product has almost disappeared from the skin. At this stage, wet your fingers again and repeat the process. This re-working will activate any left over enzymes, working deeper into the pores to cleanse.
5. Take two cotton pads moist with warm water to remove the last of the peeling cream then cleanse thoroughly to ensure any traces of enzymes have been washed away.
