|Peony Perfecting Cream $46|
The Pivoine Sublime (or Sublime Peony) range includes five "perfecting" skincare products suitable for all complexions. The peony extract is a patented active ingredient which is at the heart of this innovative skincare line.
This Perfecting Cream is a rich day or night cream, that smooths onto the skin leaving a natural fragrance of fresh peonies. The texture is thick and emollient, but the product dries to a comfortable silky finish that feels wonderful on my combination-oily skin. It is formulated with a patented "intelligent" texture agent combining beeswax and jojoba wax to help your skin adjust to the climate and humidity levels. I am both intrigued, and amazed by how velvety my face feels after using this cream.
The peony extract works to correct uneven skin texture, refine pores and fine lines, while enhancing the complexion overall. Floral extracts have been used in skincare for centuries, and with good reason. Not only do they smell divine, but flowers hold a multitude of benefits which help to increase turnover, repair and renewal of skin cells.
|Peony Perfecting Mist $25|
One of my favourite components of the Pivone Sublime collection is the Peony Perfecting Mist. You can use this at any time of day: in the morning before your moisturizer, in the afternoon for a touch of glow, or in the evening to "set" your makeup.
The scent is absolutely lovely. It's like bottling sunshine on fresh flowers, with just a touch of sweetness.
I would prefer a more fine and delicate mist from the bottle, especially when using this toner to set my makeup. The spray intensity isn't a big issue for me since the bottle is both functional and pretty. It's always a bonus when good looking products truly work.
This bottle is a perfect 100ml, which means that it is airline friendly and can be used as a refresher midway through a flight. The air inside planes can get very dry, and my skin absolutely drinks up a toning mist whenever I bring one along for the ride.
