August Gift With Purchase Winter Essentials: Exfoliate and Hydrate

Did you know that exfoliation can help you get the most out of your serums and moisturisres? It’s true! Sloughing away dead skin cells helps to prevent clogged pores and clears the way for the serums and moisturisers you use to be fully absorbed.

Our Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is one of our best-selling products. It combines Jojoba Beads, French Rose Essential Oil, Chamomile and Soapwork to gently polish, prevent dead skin cell build-up and prevent clogged pores and blackhead formation all while refining skin’s texture. It’s mild enough for all skin types and is the perfect addition to any skin care regime, especially as winter comes to a close and dead skin build up is at its pinnacle. Incorporating twice-weekly exfoliation into your routine will help bring back the glow that winter robbed your skin of and will mean your moisturiser is able to fully hydrate your skin.



We want you to experience first hand how regular exfoliation brings out the best in your moistursier so this month’s Gift With Purchase offer combines the two. For the month of August*, purchase any Essential Line Cream and you’ll receive a FREE 50mL Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser!

The Benefits of Bathing: Detoxification, Deep Muscle Relaxation and More

Once upon a time bathing was a weekly ritual that people took hours out of their day for. It was about more than just hygiene, bathing was considered a religious experience and one that cleansed the mind, body and soul.
These days we’ve replaced a weekly bath with a daily shower and while we’re very much relieved that washing has become a daily ritual, it is certainly a shame that so many people are missing out on the health benefits of a good, long bath.

Let us remind you of some of the benefits of the bathing and show you how to get the most out of your time in the tub…

1. Muscle Relaxion
Whether you’re sitting at a desk all day or you’re an athlete, the deep muscle relaxation that takes place when you’re in a bath is extremely beneficial. You will find yourself with better posture, less aches and cramps and more able to perform during workouts.
Need an extra boost? Our Aromatic Moor combines Natural Black Moor and Pine Essential Oil to alleviate aches, pains and fatigue.

2.  Stress Relief 
There’s not that much you can do in a bath. Leave your phone behind and take time out from your busy schedule to forget about the stresses of day-to-day life. If you really can’t switch off, take a magazine or book in with you to distract yourself.
Embrace the powers of aromatherapy by throwing some Mystique Escape Bath Salts into the water and switch off from the world for a while. Rinse away the stress with our Anti Stress Bath and Shower Gel which can be used every day in the shower to ward off anxiety.

3. Detox
Hot baths help your body perspire and draw out toxins in the body. The warmth also increases circulation of the lymph system which helps to clear the system of toxins and create a free-flowing system to improve overall health. Our Aromatic Moor aids in this detoxifying process.

4. Reveal Silky Smooth Skin
A good soak helps to rid yourself of dead skin cells to reveal silky smooth skin. Massage our Silky Skin Body Scrub into your body to smooth, soften and activate blood circulation.
After you leave the bath and pat yourself dry, spray Dry Oil Body Moisturiser all over your body and massage gently until absorbed. Your skin will feel cashmere smooth!

If you want to enjoy the benefits of a good bath but you’re not ready to invest in full-size products, try our Spa-At-Home Kit which includes Preserve Body Moisturizer, Anti-Stress Bath & Shower Gel, Silky Skin Body Scrub, Bath Salts with Essential Oil Anti-Stress, and a Lavender Votive Candle. Everything you need for a relaxing, rejuvenating bath at home.

The Why, How and Which of Face Masks for Your Skin Type

Most of us have a daily skin care routine that we don’t stray from but there are a few weekly or twice weekly extras that can take your skin from good to glowing perfection in very little time. One of those is a face mask.

These little beauties are easy to use, have multiple benefits and help skin stay flawless between spa visits but there are still so many people out there who neglect them completely! Here’s the why, how and what of face masks to get you started…

WHY use a Face Mask?
Day-to-day cleansing and regular exfoliation will help to keep your skin in good condition but a face mask penetrates deeper into the pores, drawing out impurities from beneath the top layers of the skin. By removing impurities, unclogging the pores and providing a deeper clean, a mask can also enhance the performance of the products you use day-to-day.
Regular facials at a salon or spa will dramatically improve the appearance of your skin but if you can only afford, or only have time for, a professional treatment every so often, a face mask will help maintain your skin between visits.

HOW to use a Face Mask?
To some degree, the how of face masks depends on the mask you’re using. Generally speaking, a mask should be applied after cleansing and toning. Apply a thin layer to the face and neck, avoiding the sensitive eye area, and leave on for ten minutes. Rinse the face with cool water and follow with lotion and cream.
This cleansing ritual will take less than a half hour total but it will do your skin wonders. Not only that, but it gives you a chance to take a little ‘me’ time without having to go out. Both you and your skin will feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

WHICH Face Mask should I use?
It all depends on what type of skin you have. Follow this easy guide to find the right face mask for your skin…

Country Style Magazine Reviews Pevonia Arominerale Signature Ritual

Not too long ago, we shared our experience having an Arominerale Signature Ritual treatment and now Juliette Winter from Country Style Magazine has shared hers…

What she says…
“After I choose my preferred essential oil (soothing neroli), my therapist lulls meinto relaxation with a back, leg and foot massage before the facial begins. The products are heaven for a stressed-out complexion ; my skin lapped up the optional Pevonia Soothing Propolis Concentrate and looked smoother and happier than it had all year.”Winter recommends this treatment for, “Mums with sensitive, stressed or problem skin” and calls the treatment, “The Harmoniser.”

If you’ve never experienced an in-spa treatment before, this is a fantastic introduction. At 90 minutes long, it incorporates both body and facial components and leaves you feeling completely and utterly relaxed inside and out.
