I’m not sure if I have said it before but I’ll say it again — I really love trying out new products! So I will no longer dwell on the happiness each BDJ Box brings everytime I receive it in my mail 🙂
Anyway, moving on, here’s a review of the Pevonia Botanica Phyto Gel Cleanser 5ml sampler which came from my Dec-Jan BDJ Box. Who knows! It might be something you have been wanting to try as well!
Honestly, this is the first time I’ve heard of the brand (yes, lame huh?) so when I saw it in my box, I really got curious. Based on my research, Pevonia is a worldwide leader in professional skincare. They are the first company to develop a Spa Skincare Line which is used by elite spas and Professional Aestheticians. It was also mentioned that they use natural ingredients in their products. Hmmm… Interesting…
So how was my experience with the product? Read on…
I have oily skin. My face usually oils up after 2 hours of washing my face. Today, after 3 1/2 hours, my face still didn’t feel oily at all. After 6 hours, I checked my skin on the mirror and saw that my nose has actually started to show some signs of oil but it was definitley unnoticeable.
My face stayed oil free for around 5-6 hours. How great is that? 🙂
I started using the cleanser the night before and if only I could describe how my face can get oily while sleeping, you’ll get a better idea on how amazing it was to wake up to an oil-free face in the morning! 🙂
During the rest of the day, the cleanser still didn’t fail to impress me. My face stayed oil-free for around 5-6 hours again but I have to say that even if after the 6th hour and my face started to show the presence of oil, it was still better than the previous days wherein I used the soap which was prescribed by a Dermatologist. Impressive!
For the past 2 days, since I wanted to test the product, I didn’t apply make-up on my face to see how the product would work without anything else used with it. So today, I decided to go back to my normal facial routine of applying my facial sunscreen, bb cream, etc… and guess what? I have never felt this oil free since I was a baby! Haha! Ok, maybe that’s too exagerrated, but being oil-free for an extra 3-4 hours is something!
Day 4 – Day 6
Happy. Happy. Happy. Happy.
Whew! My 5ml sampler made it to exactly 7 days. Yes, that’s how little you need for your entire face — now, to go back to having an oily face tomorrow, haha!
Overall, I really think Pevonia Botanica Phyto Gel Cleanser is good for my normal to oily skin. You only need a little of it to clean up your entire face. It feels and smells clean — no strong perfume scent. Unlike facial soaps, this cleanser doesn’t really lather much but after using it, my skin REALLY feels smooth and clean (if I say REALLY smooth, it is REALLY smooth!). I believe it also helps in removing make-up on my face as the cotton I use with my toner ends up clean. 🙂
It is a product worth trying out and which you might just love and include in your daily routine 🙂
Now that I’m (and my skin) convinced with this product, I’m now worried if I’ll be able to afford spending P3640 for a 200ml bottle. Haha! We’ll see 😉
