Review: Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter


First off, Happy Thanksgiving!

Second, review time! I'm jumping right into it this go around and reviewing Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter.

This marvelous melting body butter from the rare honey of Black Bees combined with Royal Jelly, is a true beauty formulation. It nourishes the skin with moisture, leaving it pleasantly scented with the sensual notes of Honey and Oriental woods. Perfect to moisturize the skin in the harsh winter and summer months.

Packaging: Best way I can describe this, body butter tub. The base that holds the product is a simple white, while the cap is a mirrored gold, accented with black and frosted gold. It's very sleek and elegant. You get 6.7fl. oz. of product in the package.

Texture/Formula: The formula for this is very rich and creamy. However, it sinks into the skin very fast.

Scent: This is where I think it comes to personal preference. This body butter has a very strong scent of honey. It was a little overwhelming at first, but I got used to it. It is a very sweet scent though, and it lingers. The Oriental woods scent is a under laying scent that I think the honey over powers.

Overall Verdict: I can see some, maybe not liking this due to the scent, especially if you aren't fond of honey. I'm not fond of a honey scent, but I got over it. What impressed me with this (which is why I got over the scent) is how moisturizing this body butter is! There hard water at work, which dries out my hands terribly, so when I get home, I put this on my hands, and any tightness, dryness, and any cracking; this definitely takes care of it. This is certainly something that I will be using through the winter months. Some lotions or body butters that I've used work ok, but this definitely works wonders.

Unboxing: Influenster RoseVoxBox


First off, I'm still trying to figure out my other camera, I think I figured out how to get the flash brighter those, so it isn't casting a yellowish tint to everything now. 

Second, I was beyond excited when I found out that I would be receiving a Rose VoxBox from Influenster. Last time I received a VoxBox was over a year ago, before I had the blog! Over a year ago, I was surprised when I opened the VoxBox and I'm still surprised. Pleasantly surprised!

This is simply an unboxing, certain products will have their own reviews coming soon.

Review: BA Star Holiday Red Lip Pencil

Review time! I received from BA Star via Brand Backer their Holiday Red Lip Pencil. I'm usually leery of wearing a red lip due to the shade and undertone, but I went with it!

  • Full Coverage Lip Pencil
  • Lines & Colors
  • Stays All Day
  • Add Shine: Lip Gloss or Glitter
  • Sharpen with Duo Hole Pencil Sharpener

via BA Star website

Packaging: Simple and sleek. It's a thick pencil with a black barrel and silver font. The end cap is silver which matches the font. The top cap is clear with two thin stripes of silver at the very top tying into the silver font.

Ingredients: Isopolybutene, Castor Oil, Ozokenite, Carnuaba, Candellina Wax, Beeswax, Petrolium, Buty Stearate, Cetyk Ricinoleate, Vitamin E, Precpylparaben, Metabylparaben, BHT, Macadamia Nut Oil, Octyl Palmiate; May Contain: Iron Oxides, Ti02,D&C Red 27 D&C Red 30 D&C Red 28

Scent: Kind of a vanilla scent, could just be me though.

Color: Vivid red that has a blue undertone to it. At first glance though, it appears to have a gold-ish sheen at the start, once you being applying it though, the frosty sheen disappears. I definitely have to say that it has a satin-like finish.

Texture/Formula: Smooth and creamy.

Overall Verdict: Definitely one of those worrisome colors for me due to the blue undertone. Other than that it is a beautiful color with a lovely finish. I did notice a little bit a staining though on the lips as the swatch on my hand. Besides that, this is a moisturizing lip pencil, plus I didn't notice any feathering. I would recommend this, especially for the up and coming holiday season.

Price: $8.75
