Review : Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress


Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress


Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress was kindly sent to me during the middle of my second trimester after the lovely people at Pevonia read that I had been through a rather stressful first trimester (with all-day morning sickness and my high risk genetic CVS screening).

Prior to trying this product, I hadn’t heard of the brand Pevonia before…but after doing some internet stalking on their website, I discovered that they are “an elite, organic skin care line offered by the most prestigious spas worldwide”.  With that in mind, I happily put Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress to the test to see if it helped me de-stress during my pregnancy…

First of all, Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress passed the smell test.  Pregnancy has given me altered and heightened nasal senses.  For example, I cannot wear one of my signature perfumes, Paul Smith Rose because for now, it stinks so bad and intoxicates me.  Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress has a pleasant subtle orange and essential oil smell – due to its ingredients of geranium, safflower and orange oils.

My stress levels in the latter half of the second trimester was dramatically decreased – mainly due to the fact that I stopped vomiting on a daily basis and I could start eating…and boy, did I do a LOT of eating as I went from 53kg to 65kg (my usual weight is 54-56kg but I lost weight from all the vomiting).  My petite frame can barely handle all the extra weight gain so I have been suffering physical aches and pains, i.e. tummy and back pain, arm and leg cramps.

When I suffer from the occasional aches and pains, my Husband has been fantastic at giving me mini massages using Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress.  Because it isn’t a runny oil, but in emulsion cream form, he likes it a lot as it doesn’t run all over the bed and it doesn’t leave behind an oily residue.

As for me, whenever I get a massage, I am instantly relaxed and all the stresses of my day is melted away.  Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress has definitely helped because it feels good on my skin – not slippery – and also, it is ultra moisturising for my dry skin.

Important points to note :

  • I do NOT use Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress on my baby bump as it contains essential oils which can absorb into my body and cross the placenta.  (For my baby bump, I have been using Uriage Xemose – review coming soon :))
  • Due to varying results and limited studies of essential oils on pregnancy, my Husband and I are extra cautious and only use small amounts on an occasional basis.

I still have the third trimester to go and I am anticipating more baby bump growth spurts, i.e. more aches and pains, plus giving birth plus taking care of a screaming newborn – which all equates to stress!!!  So I will definitely be needing Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress to help release all the tension and de-stress me :)

    This lotion has a wonderful scent – not too floral or obnoxious. It also does a great job moisturizing. This is the second time I’ve purchased it!

    At a spa recently, I simply had to find out what kind of lotion my masseuse was using. The Pevonia lotion makes for a wonderful massage, silky without being oily, hydrating and light. The delicate citrus aroma is perfection too, so relaxing. This is good stuff.
