I couldn’t wait to try my Pevonia Botanica sample products that arrived in the mail. The box contained a white fabric pouch that looked like the material a spa robe would be made out of – a bit like a quilted waffle weave. Very clever. Inside the pouch, 3 trial size samples of Pevonia Botanica products. Good size samples, in the 1 to 1.7 ounce range. Perfect for air travel.
Pevonia Botanica Anti-Stress Bath & Shower Gel
I call this product a “spa in a bottle” because it transports me back to being at the spa. Contains lavender, hazelnut oil and chamomile – but it’s the lavender that really packs an aromatherapy punch in this product. You can use the gel under running water in the bath or with a washcloth or loofah in the shower.
- Love the strong lavender scent
- Lightly foaming
- Clean rinsing
Pevonia Botanica Silky Skin Body Scrub
Rosemary and sage are the aromatherapy stars in this scrub. Use it in the shower, after cleansing, with wet hands or a body brush. The product claims to eliminate rough areas. Since it’s summertime, I don’t have a lot of rough areas – but it feels great!
- Milky and creamy
- Gentle yet effective grains in the scrub
- Light, clean scent
Pevonia Botanica Tropicale Papaya-Pineapple De-Aging Body Balm
Since I tend to dislike skincare products that smell like fruit, I wasn’t sure I would like this product. But the tropical scent of papaya-pineapple is not overwhelming at all. Once you smooth it onto your skin, it smells even less fruity – a good thing in my book!
- Absorbs easily
- Texture is a cross between a gel and a lotion
- Light, tropical fruit scent
- Skin still feels moisturized at the end of the day
I can’t say I noticed any “de-aging” qualities in the product, but I’ve only been using it for a few days. The Tropicale De-Aging line also comes in mango-passionfruit.
