Review: Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter

I received this product through iFabbo:  to those bloggers who don’t already have an account, I definitely recommend applying. I was required to post a review on this product, however, I am as always posting my honest opinion on the product.

I was originally super excited about receiving this product, especially with winter (dry skin season) approaching.

I really wanted to like this, but I simply couldn’t. The packaging itself is absolutely gorgeous and luxurious. When I opened the shipping box, I was super excited. However, once I opened the container, I reeled back. This body butter smells incredibly strong. It smells artificially sweet. I normally prefer sweet scents, but this was too strong, even for me.

The texture is incredibly thick, to the point of being not-so- good. It looks like sour cream or paste, not something to smear on your body.

When I put the body butter on my legs after I showered and shaved, it took a great deal of effort to get it to sink into my skin, as parched as my skin is after a shower.

This retails here on HSN for $40 USD, with $4.96 shipping and handling. It is currently sold out, but I’m sure it will be back soon.  If you can deal with strong scents, and really like super thick lotions, you can use the coupon code iFabbo5 to get $5 off your order. (This coupon code expires on 12/31/13, so it’s perfect for Christmas)

Will you try this? What do you think?

October Favorites 2013

All products and services mentioned in this post have been purchased by me, and these are my honest opinions. 

Hi All! It’s monthly favorites time! Today I’ve got four makeup products, one nail polish, and a perfume. It is a bit on the smaller side, but that is just because I tried to hold myself back on buying products this month.

October 2013

My first favorite is an eyeshadow quad. This is Maybelline’s ExpertWear Eyeshadow Quad in Designer Chocolates. This is a super gorgeous, shimmery palette. Almost everyday, I’ve used the enclosed sponge applicators to put the lightest color on my lid and browbone, the “crease” color in my outer corner, and the “liner” color in my crease and lash line.

My next favorite is my NYColor Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder in Translucent, which I am almost out of! I just bought more at Target. I love this, especially for the price! I apply it all over my face with my Laura Mercier Powder puff.

My other face product I’ve been loving this month has been my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles. Mine is in the shade Brightening, This is an awesome undereye concealer, as well as covering up the redness around my nose. I simply apply this before foundation directly to my face, then blending with a clean finger.

My final makeup product this month is a mascara. This is the Covergirl Professional All-In-One Waterproof Mascara in Very Black. This was the first mascara I ever purchased, and I’ve just recently gone back to it. My lashes work best with a drier mascara, which I believe is why this works so much better for me now.

My favorite Scent of the month is my Carried Away mini fragrance mist by Bath & Body Works. This has been my go-to all month.  I also adore this packaging!

Last, but certainly not least, is my favorite nail product of the month. This is Sinful Color’s Snow Me White. This is the first opaque white I’ve ever seen, and it is good! The price, of course,  just makes it sweeter!
