Creamy Perlier Imperial Honey and Creamy Julep Colorblock #PerlierOnHSN
I have a double-feature for you today! A review of a wonderful cream that I received through my relationship with iFabbo, and a mani I did to go along with it.
Look at this beautiful packaging. I love when a product's packaging lets you know to expect something luxurious. This is Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter.
A Royal product deserves a royal mani, right? I was inspired by the creaminess of the butter and the gold packaging to do this colorblock mani.
The cream is made with the rare honey of African Black Bees and Royal Jelly. It is wonderfully thick and rich, but absorbs quickly with no greasy residue. I can see using this any time of year because it moisturizes so well, but doesn't leave any film on the skin.
The cream is scented with notes of 'honey and Oriental woods' according to Perlier. And..that's the only problem I had with this product. The scent. It's pretty strong, and I'm not a fan of heavy, musky scents. I like the scent of honey, but the 'Oriental Woods' was too much for me. It lingered for hours, too - every time I raised my hands, I got another whiff of the heavy perfume. I like the cream enough to doctor it up with some fragrance oils I have, and lighten the scent.
Here's a closer look of the mani -
Just like the cream, the mani has lighter and heavier notes!
