Product Review: Pevonia Botanica Ligne Nymphea Micro-Emulsified massage Oil Anti-Stress

Today I’d like to share with you a review of a product that I’ve been enjoying lately, the *Pevonia Botanica Ligne Nymphea Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress;


What They Say:
"Exhale and De-stress! Enjoy a relaxing massage any time…anywhere. Elegantly creamy, Micro-Emulsion Massage Oil Anti-Stress releases pent up tension and fatigue as it easily glides onto your skin. Delightfully aromatic, nourishing Safflower, Geranium, and Orange Oils blend to activate circulation, replenish elasticity and hydration while relieving dryness."

RRP: $61 (150ml) – Available from Pevonia Botanica

What I Say:
When I first received the Pevonia Micro-Emulsified massage Oil Anti-Stress, I was expecting a massage oil. I mean, it is after all called massage oil! So I was surprised to see that this in fact has the consistency of a moisturiser! It would have been a little more fitting calling it a massage cream! But as Pevonia puts it, as you massage it into the skin “your skin’s own warmth promotes the oil’s release and helps it become increasingly silkier”, which hence justifies the name.

It comes in the white soft touch bottle with a modern shape unique to Pevonia. It has a clear blue screw lid and has been designed to stand on its lid, which I like as the cream drops down in the bottle as I use it, making it easy to use every last bit in the bottle.

The cream has a light lotion consistency, and once applied, it does leave the skin feeling a little greasy for a little while, but when you remember that this is in fact a ‘massage oil’, that makes perfect sense. Yet the greasiness is not so bad that I don’t feel I can use this as a body moisturiser, it is just not suitable to use as a hand cream as it will mean you will leave some greasy fingerprints behind.

I don’t have particularly dry skin on my body, but still I can instantly feel how the cream is hydrating my skin, making it feel so silky soft, smooth and moisturised throughout the day, leaving the skin with a nice sheen, yet without making the skin feel congested or clogged from too much moisture.

The cream is supposed to also help with tension and fatigue, but unless you’ve got someone else at hand to help massage the cream into tensioned shoulders, I am not sure it is really helping me de-stress. But in saying that, when I have the time, I love pampering myself, and using such a lovely cream as the Pevonia Micro-Emulsified massage Oil Anti-Stress, in itself is an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

The cream has a lovely gentle fruity yet floral scent, no doubt coming from the included orange, safflower and geranium, and this scent lingers on the skin for quite a while, which I really like.

At $61 for a 150ml tube, this is not a cheap massage cream, but it is very concentrated so a little goes a long way.

What I Like:
  • It makes my skin feel silky soft and smooth
  • It has a gorgeous scent
  • It feels so luxurious to use

What I Don’t Like:
  • The price

Overall, this is a lovely massage cream, and I love using it when I come out of the shower as I love how soft and smooth it makes my skin feel, and not to mention the gorgeous scent it leaves behind. It may be a bit expensive, but to me it is worth it for the pleasure I have of using it, it is such a treat, that it is completely worth it!
