Skincare is definitely the area to invest in when it comes to your beauty routine. I’m not just talking about investing your hard-earned money, but time and patience as well, especially when it comes to creating a routine that will actually work and provide you with the results you are seeking.
But where do you really start? After all, when it comes to skincare shopping, it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of options especially with constant new releases and new trends taking centre stage!
Luckily at Beauty Collective HQ we have the fortune to trial many of our products so I turned to my trustee work colleagues to find out which ones they really can’t live without, so I can, in turn, share our favourite finds with you.
Whether you are looking for a cream to target a specific skin concern or you are just after some inspiration as now is the time to upgrade, we have you covered with these beauty heroes the team at BC can’t get enough of.
PEVONIA MICRO-RETINOL SERUM
I’m completely in love with Pevonia’s Micro-Retinol line. I noticed the most dramatic change to my skin and it just keeps getting better. My favourite product in the line is the Micro-Retinol Serum; it gives my skin a glow and seems to make the pores disappear. I’ve noticed a great improvement to firmness, moisture levels, skin texture and a reduction in hyper-pigmentation. What more could I want? I¹ve used Retinol based products before but this is the line I find really works, and it feels and smells great too!

PHYTOMER PIONNIERE XMF RADIANCE RETEXTURISING SERUM
For many years my absolute can’t live without product was the Pevonia Marine Collagen Concentrate (I am still totally in LOVE with this product and use it all the time) but more recently I discovered Phytomer’s Pionniere XMF Radiance Retexturing Serum and have been blown away with the results.
It’s a luxurious, lightweight textured serum which feels amazing on application and leaves my skin smooth, soft, supple and visibly radiant (no jokes!) Also, I swear it has diminished some of my more noticeable fine lines in a matter of weeks. All hail this serum!

MEDICALIA SUNSCREEN SPF 30
Wearing sunscreen daily is a non-negotiable step in my morning routine and Medicalia’s Sunscreen SPF 30 will be my forever go-to! I’ve tried many sunscreens in my time but none as gorgeously lightweight and non-greasy as this one. It’s also lightly tinted, has the perfect texture to apply before makeup, and as well as keeping my skin protected it actually also feels noticeably hydrated and doesn’t clog my pores like so many sunscreens do! If you are looking for an amazing everyday sunscreen, this is one you must try!

PEVONIA CLARIFYL SPOT TREATMENT
Even though I’m in my early 30s my skin still gets easily irritated and spots appear! I’m so glad I discovered this perfect product – Pevonia’s Spot Treatment. On application, it immediately takes away the redness in my skin and after a few days, there’s no trace of pimple marks at all! Amazing.
– Elaine Palapag, Social Media and e-Marketing Co-ordinator
PEVONIA RS2 CREAM
My favourite product is the Pevonia RS2 Cream.I suffer from Rosacea so my skin used to be very reactive, sensitive and red. Since using this, my skin feels a lot calmer and my complexion has noticeably improved over time. I wish I’d used this product years ago as nothing I used before seemed to help. I now apply the entire RS2 line daily and my skin feels pretty good for an old guy!

PHYTOMER HYDRACONTINUE 12H MOISTURISING FLASH GEL
Warning – Addictive Product – Hydracontinue 12H Moisturising Flash Gel, is exactly that! It’s like a glass of water for my skin. The super soft gel hydrates my skin from morning till evening and when applied absorbs so quickly I can’t even tell it’s on. It’s so great for when I’ve been working in air-con, central heating or not drinking enough water and has definitely helped lessen my creapy fine lines and wrinkles. I love it!
– Kellie Deveney, Business & Training Manager
PEVONIA EASY GLIDE SHAVING EMULSION
I am really loving Pevonia’s Easy-Glide Shaving Emulsion because it delivers a velvety-smooth shaving experience with ease. After applying it, my skin feels smoother and so refreshed, without any irritation whatsoever!
– Jonathan, Web/Graphic Designer
PEVONIA OPTIMAL C COMPLEX
I have a deep Love for the Pevonia’s Optimal C Complex. It’s a combination of pure Vitamin C and Hyluronic acid. The Vitamin C works to visibly brighten my skin when it feels devitalised and Hyluronic Acid drenches my skin in moisture, hydrating it for the entire day. I apply this beautiful concentrate underneath my reactive care cream morning and night for “optimal” results….
– Laura Leva, Customer Service
VIE COLLECTION RENEWING EXFOLIATING CREAM
Fresh, silky-smooth skin is what you get from the Vie Collection’s Renewing Exfoliating Cream. With double exfoliating action from beads and enzymes, my skin is left ultra-smooth and beaming bright! I can visibly see a big difference in my dark spots and the effect it has on wiping out my pesky blackheads. I am honestly in LOVE with it!
– Keshmi Chand, Account Manager
PEVONIA SOOTHING SENSITIVE SKIN CREAM
Pevonia’s Soothing Sensitive Skin Cream is by far my favourite product – it satisfies exactly what my skin craves. The cream isn’t heavy or thick but light and smooth, which absorbs immediately into my skin. My skin feels stronger, smoother and looks calm and hydrated. Dehydration is a key concern of mine especially during the chilly months and the Sensitive Skin Cream works it magic throughout the year.
– Jimmy Lovett , Operations Manager
PEVONIA HYDRATING SUNSCREEN
Pevonia’s Hydrating Sunscreen is definitely one of my favourites! Whenever I am out and about this deeply hydrating SPF 30 is my sparring partner. I always make sure that I apply the right amount to my face and arms and truth be told, the day after I’ve been to the beach or wakeboarding, my skin is never sore from all that sun. Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen is one of the most effective sunscreens I have used!
– Aaron Tan Lu, Web Developer / Digital Marketing Specialist
PEVONIA AFTER SUN SOOTHING GEL
The Pevonia After Sun Soothing Gel is hands down the best after sun skincare product. It’s the only thing I’ve ever used that actually works to replenish moisture after a full day of sun exposure plus it really sooths my skin. Couldn’t speak more highly of this miracle in a bottle!
