Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter Review #PerlierOnHSN

Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter ReviewI received this product as part of an iFabbo membership campaign. I received no other compensation for reviewing this product. All reviews are 100% my own. 

Ladies, get ready to try the most indulgent body butter ever to come out of Italy. Perfect for winter, Perlier Imperial Nourishing Body Butter uses the honey of black bees (no really, there are black bees. Google it) combined with royal jelly to get skin buzzing with moisture.

Scent-wise, the honey notes stuck out to me most, though it includes fragrance identified as “Oriental woods” (here’s a hint to anyone out there who might be Christmas shopping for me: if the smell is described as “Oriental Woods”, I’ll love it).

Out here in the dry desert, my skin needs constant moisture, and Perlier’s thick, luxurious texture keeps that moisture in. I smooth it on all over right after my shower and I find I stay silky soft all day. Che bella!

Skincare Reviews: Murad Eye Treatment Complex

murad-eye-treatment-complex-2-spf-8 reviewAs you may be able to tell from my Instagram pics, I have some eye area issues, including dark circles, deep tear troughs and some undereye baggage. It’s not age, hydration, or how well-rested I am, as women with similar problems are so often told; rather, I’ve had these since I was a child. Really. They’re in photos of me when I was six years old. The truth is, dark eye areas and deep undereye circles are common in women with Eastern European heritage, so the Hungarian blood lurking not too far up the family tree from me may be responsible for the dull divots that have haunted my face for decades.

Still, accepting that the problem isn’t my fault doesn’t make it go away; I will probably always endeavor, hopelessly or not, to rid myself of these para-ocular pains. The latest step on my journey toward the mythical miracle cure: Murad Eye Treatment Complex SPF 8.

Skincare Reviews: Aveeno Positively Ageless Night Cream

Skincare Reviews Aveeno Positively Ageless Night CreamContinuing in my preventive maintenance approach to skincare, I tried Aveeno’s Active Naturals Positively Ageless Lifting and Firming Night Cream. The product is formulated with the ever-trendy shiitake mushroom complex and wheat proteins (because in theory, rubbing healthy foods on yourself is just as good for you as eating them).

This cream smells like your typical wrinkle cream fare, and rubs in easily without leaving a greasy film on your face. There was some minor tingling and irritation, which I assume is due to the fragrance. Tingly feelings always help to convince me the product’s working, so I thought maybe it was a marketing ploy, but not so! Read on.

Skincare Review: Athena 7 Minute Lift

Athena 7 Minute Lift Cream Review Wrinkle Cremes That WorkBecause of how many products I try, it’s very rare that one really piques my interest anymore. Athena’s 7 Minute Lift is one of the few that has succeeded in doing so. After seeing its slogan “Facelift in a Jar”, I assumed this was your typical glue-like moisturizer that might produce some results after 6 grueling weeks of daily use. Not so! Ladies, if you have wrinkles, sagging skin, laugh lines, or essentially any skin you’d like firmed and smoothed, you cannot miss out on this.

Athena 7 Minute Lift is very unique as products go. First of all, it’s not a cream so much as a thick gel – it comes with a concealer brush that you use to “paint” it onto your face and smooth problem areas. The product comes with detailed instructions on doing so, and even provides a Q&A of what to do if you have any number of problems with or questions about your results.

Skincare Reviews: Lumene TIME FREEZE Firming Day Cream

lumene-time-freeze-firming-day-cream review -spf-15We’re all looking for inexpensive versions of luxury skincare products that still do the trick to make us look younger and better. That’s one of the things that led me to pick up Lumene Time Freeze Firming Day Cream. I’m not all that saggy yet – but I’ve already got some areas that need serious help.

The product smells great, but it’s on the oily side – I’d only recommend it for really dry skin. It worked a lot better for me after I moved to Phoenix than when I lived in the humid Houston weather.
