Perlier Imperial Honey review


Body Butter: c/o Perlier Imperial Honey

Perlier “Imperial Honey” is a new body butter product from Italian beauty brand Perlier. The body butter is made from the rare honey of black bees and combined with royal jelly. It is considered to be a “youth-elixir.”

I tested out Perlier’s “Imperial Honey” body butter for one week. This time of year my skin tends to get dry from the heater and the dry weather we typically have in the fall months. Perleir’s “Imperial Honey” body butter was a welcome test for my dry skin. I love how it quickly nourished my skin and left it feeling anything but dry!

Body creams, lotions and butters with a scent are my favorite to use. I have a bit of a fragrance addiction 🙂 I love the warm fragrance experience from Perlier’s “Imperial Honey” body butter. There were fragrance notes of honey, woods and soft spices which carried me throughout the day. The scent was easy to blend with warm fragrances such as Dolce & Gabbana “Desire the one” and Van Cleef & Arpel’s “Precious Oud.”

The verdict? Five out of five stars!

Perlier’s “Imperial Honey” body butter is priced at $40 and can be found online here. Use coupon code iFABBO5 and save $5 on your order! Love that!

I have been skipping the lace trend over the past few seasons because I felt like it did not fit my personality. So, when I saw this shawl or “kimono” from BooHoo I knew it was the perfect way for me to dive head first into lace this season. There is something slightly edgy about the way the shawl is made. I love how it spices up a classic yet bright pencil skirt turning it into a dinner ensemble. I also love how it works with casual jeans or thrown over a dress. I can definitely see myself wearing this shawl for a variety of occasions this season!

What have been your thoughts on the lace trend over the past few seasons? Have you been wearing it, or have you been like me, avoiding it?
