Radical Bliss!

Review: Pevonia Anti-Free Radical Facial

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bless me girls and boys for I have sinned! It has been eight months since my last facial! So when the girls at Spa Pevonia invited me in for a treatment I jumped at the opportunity.  What a lovely way to start the week! I’ve just arrived back at my desk and can’t wipe the smile and the glow from my pampered face.

I arrived 15 minutes early for my treatment as requested and after being greeted was introduced to my therapist who asked me to complete a health questionnaire. My lovely therapist went through this with me thoroughly, asking me numerous questions to determine the best treatment and finally recommended the Anti-Free Radical Facial.  Unlike many who complain about this lengthy process I actually enjoyed it as it made me feel reassured that not only would the treatment be safe for me but would provide the best possible results for my skin type.

I was then escorted to a changing area and asked to put on a white fluffy gown and slippers and wait in the relaxation lounge.  The sun was shining in and the music soothed my senses, I was just finishing my delicious fruity tea (I might have had a fresh muffin too) and my therapist came to escort me to my cosy treatment room where I instantly felt relaxed.

I was made comfortable on a divine bed with heat packs soothing me in all the right places and covered in a soft heated blanket….bliss….and my therapist began the treatment.

First she cleansed my skin with a soothing emulsion that was removed with warm fragrant towels.  Once cleansed a lovely warm “oaty” enzyme peel was applied and kept warm under steam, while this was working to remove my dry, dead winter skin cells my therapist massaged my arms with a cool geranium scented oil.  Once again warm aromatic towels were used to remove my enzyme peel and my skin already felt fresh and vibrant.

A delicious-scented, silky oil was then applied to my skin and for the next 15 minutes I was massaged all over the face and neck.  Did I mention the bliss? My skin literally drank the exquisite concoction which I was told contained skin rejuvenating vitamins A and E which counteract free radical skin damage and brightening mandarin.  All sounded and smelt very good to me.  When the massage was finished (I wished it could have gone on forever) my therapist applied an amazing mask that was thick and warm and invigorating, the peppermint and lavender combination was amazing!  The warmth remained as the mask set and then cooled to a refreshing chill.  My therapist explained it helped to aid in the penetration of the vitamins and increased the circulation.  While this was on my scalp was massaged and I think I may have slept (me snoring?! Noooo!) The mask was removed in one easy piece and my skin felt incredible, awake and so incredibly hydrated.  Protective products were used to seal in all the goodies and protect me from the damaging rays of the sun and my treatment was complete.  I mentally vowed to come every month for a facial treatment.

More relaxing in the relaxation lounge, they told me I could stay as long as I liked, and I was ready to face my working week.

I still can’t get over how baby soft my skin feels and how vibrant it looked after this treatment. I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers winter dehydration or even if you skin just feels “out of balance”.

Ingredient Spotlight: The Benefits of Aloe to your Skin

Living in Australia, it’s likely you’ve at some point in your life been scorched by the sun and used a little gel directly from an aloe plant to soothe the burn but what you might not know is how many other skin benefits this incredible plant has.
Aloe is an ingredient in a huge range of our products including our Balancing Combination Cream, Clarifyl Spot Treatment, Soothing Sensitive Skin Mask, and De-Ageing Mists. Read on to discover more about this wonder-plant and how it could help your skin.

What is Aloe?
Aloe is a family of around 500 succulent plants of which the most well known is Aloe Vera which translates to true aloe. The family is thought to have originated in Africa and has been frequently cited as being used in herbal medicine since the beginning of the first century AD.
Aloe Vera has been dubbed the ‘first aid plant’ and is commonly used on burns, cuts, and even bites.

What skin benefits does aloe have?
– Soothing
Aloe is a natural moisturizer with a cooling, calming effect on the skin, making it ideal for sensitive skin types. You’ll find aloe as a main ingredient in much of our Sensitive Skin Line  . Our Spa Teen All Skin Types Lotion also contains aloe to help protect young skin which tends to be more on the sensitive side.
– Healing 
Both our Purifying Skin Mask and Clarifyl Spot Treatment feature Aloe to help increase blood circulation to the surface of your skin to speed up the healing process and nourish damaged cells.
– Hydrating
 Our famous Dry Oil Body Moisturiser contains aloe to hydrate and heal dry skin.

– Anti-Ageing
Aloe contains amino acids, fatty acids, zinc and vitamins C and E, all of which are important in the process of skin repair, making it the perfect anti-ageing product. Plus it helps oxygenate the skin too. Our De Ageing Mists feature aloe to help stop the aging process.

August Gift With Purchase Winter Essentials: Exfoliate and Hydrate

Did you know that exfoliation can help you get the most out of your serums and moisturisres? It’s true! Sloughing away dead skin cells helps to prevent clogged pores and clears the way for the serums and moisturisers you use to be fully absorbed.

Our Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is one of our best-selling products. It combines Jojoba Beads, French Rose Essential Oil, Chamomile and Soapwork to gently polish, prevent dead skin cell build-up and prevent clogged pores and blackhead formation all while refining skin’s texture. It’s mild enough for all skin types and is the perfect addition to any skin care regime, especially as winter comes to a close and dead skin build up is at its pinnacle. Incorporating twice-weekly exfoliation into your routine will help bring back the glow that winter robbed your skin of and will mean your moisturiser is able to fully hydrate your skin.



We want you to experience first hand how regular exfoliation brings out the best in your moistursier so this month’s Gift With Purchase offer combines the two. For the month of August*, purchase any Essential Line Cream and you’ll receive a FREE 50mL Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser!
