The Bees Knees- Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter

This is not your average body butter!  Perlier has created a one of a kind, decadent treatment for your winter weary skin.  

At first glance, the packaging's reflective gold lid will give you a good indication of the royal treatment you're about to experience.  

Channel your inner "Queen Bee" (I just couldn't resist :), and check out what Perlier's Imperial Honey Body Butter has in store…

The body butter is made with a mix of the rare honey of Black Bees, and Royal Jelly.  Wow, right? If you're not familiar with Royal Jelly, it's a liquid mixture of honey, nectar, water, saliva, hormones, and water, that is secreted through glands on the heads of worker bees. It is then fed to the queen bee and larva to help nourish them to grow stronger.

Here are a few benefits of honey when used on the skin:

  • Anitbacterial- Often used for healing or treating acne
  • Nourishing and soothing
  • Hydrating

Here are a few benefits of royal jelly when used on the skin:
  • Reverses signs of aging- boosts collagen production
  • It contains safe forms of progesterone and estrogen so it can help balance hormones
  • Healing- stimulates skin regeneration

The body butter itself is a thick, creamy consistency, and smells like you're pouring straight honey on your bod.  When I first used it, I had a frightening mental flash of having this on in the summer and getting swarmed by bees, haha.  It's a strong, but not overpowering honey scent that stays with me throughout the day.  It's quite pleasant!

I apply it to my slightly damp skin, straight out of a shower.  It goes on thick, and doesn't really spread with too much of a glide, but if you can imagine spreading honey on your skin it wouldn't be the easiest task.  It's not quite that thick and sticky as pure honey, but does require a little muscle to work in. That's the only issue I had with this product, if you want to even call that an issue. Definitely, not a big deal!

Overall, the Imperial Honey Body Butter does a great job of keeping my skin moisturized throughout the day.  It smells really yummy, and the scent lasts all day.  It's definitely a unique, luxury skin treatment to pamper and protect.  Another great, innovative Perlier product.  Keep em' coming Perlier!
