AMW Reviews: Pevonia Botanica Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil “Anti-Stress”

Happy Saturday everyone!
The week passed by pretty quickly and today, I'm off to spend quality time with my family as my brother will be leaving the country again after a week long vacation!  We're staying overnight in a hotel for relaxation, speaking of relaxation, I'll definitely bring my Pevonia Botanica product in which I will be reviewing today so you'll understand why I'm taking this with me!  There will definitely be some massaging session for both my mom and sister! :D

Exhale and De-stress! Enjoy a relaxing massage any time…anywhere. Elegantly creamy, Micro-Emulsion Massage Oil Anti-Stress releases pent up tension and fatigue as it easily glides onto your skin. Delightfully aromatic, nourishing Safflower, Geranium, and Orange Oils blend to activate circulation, replenish elasticity and hydration while relieving dryness.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Simple packaging that's perfect on my bath area.
  • A little goes a long way.  
  • Smells wonderful and relaxing.
  • The product is non-oily and non-greasy.
  • Hydrates skin immediately after use.  Moisture stays for the whole day.
  • The product says "oil" but it's actually a light cream texture that gets absorbed into the skin easily.
Cons
  • Price.
  • Not widely available.
Overall
The Pevonia Botanica Micro-emulsified massage oil is called "oil" amidst the light cream texture is due to the fact that it can activate the skin's natural oil release which helps the skin feels silkier and smoother.  The product is lightweight upon application and grease-free for the rest of the day.

Tips
from Pevonia
  • Use as desired for a relaxing and renewing massage by applying a small quantity on areas of tension or all over your body and applying desired pressure. 
  • Your skin's own warmth promotes the oil’s release and helps it become increasingly silkier. 
from AMW
  • Best applied after shower or bath.
  • I like applying more on areas that needed more moisture, my knees, my elbows and my ankles.
  • Take time in application, if you worry about the product feeling heavy and greasy the whole day, wipe off excess "moisture" by patting your skin with a clean towel.
  • It helps to have someone massage you.  Now that I can't reach my toes, Mr. AMW helps me apply lotion on my legs and feet before I go to sleep.
  • Apply on pressure points like the bag of the neck, temple etc... for relaxation.
Will I repurchase?
I just did.  I have a friend who just gave birth to her second daughter in the US and I think she deserves some relaxation!  Well, she's probably reading this so I'm not saying anything more! :D

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who needs to hydration plus relaxation.  This is perfect as gifts for busy moms and even single women out there who's busy with work!

Where to purchase and how much?
Available locally online for Php2.570.00 (approx $64.25). Like Pevonia Botanica Philippines on Facebook and visit http://pevoniaskincareblog.com.ph/ to read more about our products, promotions and other skincare and wellness articles.

Packaging 
Twist cap and squeeze tube in which I appreciate as I'm sure to get all the products inside!

A pump packaging will always be appreciated but I don't mind this.

Light cream texture in which I was a bit surprised as I was expecting "oil" to come out!  I'm glad it's not as I tend to worry about the greasy feel most oil-products give!  

Upon massage, the effect looks like regular lotion but its more absorbent than regular creams/lotions.


So far, this is my second Pevonia Botanica products that I've tried and both experiences are positive!  Their prices are a bit higher than regular skincare/bodycare but at the end of the day, if it works for you and can satisfy the needs of your skin, why not?  You deserve it!

Just in case, if you don't have the budget to purchase their wide range of products, you can always have a massage at The Spa as I believe they also offer Pevonia Botanica products there!  I actually learned about the brand during my stay in Shenzhen, China as the Spa place in which I bought my 1 year membership from uses all Pevonia Botanica products and both the facial and body care works for me!

  1. Thank you Nikki for the great review. Yes, the Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil is being used in most of our partner spas. From cream, the oil is activated as you massage it on your skin. =)
