A huge perk of being a beauty writer is getting to experience the best the beauty world has to offer. That means products and treatments that really deliver results. Thanks to a recent Pevonia event, I had the best facial ever and discovered my newest favorite product. Win and win!
This was actually my first experience with Pevonia Botanica products and I have to admit I’m now a fan for life. It has a stellar reputation that proceeds it, in part because of their high manufacturing processes, exceptional natural product formulations and innovative treatments found in over 10,000 spas in 110 countries in destination resorts, spas and medical products. Pevonia includes an extensive line of spa face and body home care programs and in-spa results-oriented face and body treatments for all skin types.
So I headed to New York’s Renaissance Hotel on 57th Street — a wonderful boutique hotel that perfectly blends modern design and classic elegance — where the event was being held and I was greeted by Ada Lamela, Global Corporate Educator at Pevonia and top aesthetician. After she explained the various in-spa facial options we both agreed that I’d benefit the most from the Lumafirm Lift & Glow Facial. It’s ideal for those showing signs of aging or those that want an instant boost to look their best which is why it’s also the facial of choice for many a bride-to-be. Just one in-spa Lumafirm facial gives instant and cumulative results, reducing wrinkles and increasing luminosity, firmness, elasticity and skin smoothness.
The Lumafirm Lift & Glow treatment features an advanced delivery system for better penetration of the freeze dried extra potent anti-aging actives. There’s Kombucha, rich in the B Vitamins and enzymes for cell renewal, Sorghum, rich in Vitamins B2 and C as well as Potassium and Iron for skin tightening and more. *There’s also a 2-step at-home version to extend your in-spa results.
The full ritual was incredibly relaxing and incorporated a variety of steps that far transcends a typical facial routine. It includes a light body massage, facial cleansing, detoxing facial massage, the application of the Lumafirm Lift & Glow for face and eyes, foot care and more, all while using a customized selection of lush Pevonia skin care products with advanced green technology products and delivery systems.
This new favorite product of mine should be in every cosmetic bag. It’s the Pevonia Ligne Speciale Youth Renew Tinted Cream SPF30 ($49) and it takes the BB cream or the CC cream to a whole other level. It’s actually a 5 in 1 protective, anti-aging tinted moisturizer so you get light coverage, a luminous glow, anti-aging benefits, a mega boost in hydration and broad spectrum SPF 30. It’s also formulated with special microspheres to deliver saccharides, lemon and cucumber extracts for an instantly brighter complexion. It also contains collagen, vitamin C and olive extracts to repair lines and wrinkles. The natural tint suits all complexions and reduces the look of enlarged pores. Apply one or more pumps to your face and neck daily and expect instant luminosity and a more even-toned complexion.
