Does anybody else endure dry skin during the harsh weather change? I’m constantly looking for great methods of moisturizing, but my skin is so sensitive that I’m limited to what I can use. Plus, I’m super picky about scents… so that eliminates about 95% of all lotions on the market.I haven’t given body butter a try since middle school, but thanks to iFabbo, I was able to try Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter prior to my trip to DC. It’s made from the rare honey of Black Bees, combined with Royal Jelly– which sounds kind of disgusting– to formulate a luxurious skin moisturizer.
What I really like about this product is that it’s effectively nourishing and instantly softens your skin. Apparently those African Black Bees have incredible talent when it comes to human skincare. The body butter’s effects are long-lasting, and my skin exudes a healthy and imperial glow after use. In addition to using Perlier as a body moisturizer, I’ve been slathering it on my “backside cushion spots” (ie. cellulite) to see if it has any toning capabilities, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. Call me an optimist, but I truly feel like it has been firming my upper thighs—at least to the level of Nivea and Jergins’ skin firming formulas.
Now, as I said before, I’m extremely sensitive to scents… and although this is far from intrusive, the sensual notes of Honey and Oriental woods are a little much for full body application. I just use Perlier’s body butter on my extreme areas of dryness in order to mitigate my chances of smelling like a bee hive…and also in an attempt to save this quite valuable product. The Imperial Honey Body Butter is sold on the HSN, and a 6.7oz tub retails for $40, which is a pretty steep increase from the $15-$20 range of products from The Body Shop or Bath and Body Works.
