Perlier Honey Royal Gold Elixir Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I’ve been part of iFabbo (International Organization for Fashion, Beauty & Style Bloggers & Brands) since October of last year. It wasn’t until recently, that I received Perlier Honey Royal Gold Elixir Facial Serum from iFabbo.

iFabbo - Perlier Honey Gold Royal Elixir

“This innovative, anti-aging serum incorporates fresh Royal Jelly from African bees known to stimulate collagen production and provide vital nutrients and anti-oxidative properties to the skin.  Additionally, all the water has been replaced by extremely pure rose distillate that has moisturizing and toning properties. A truly cutting edge product that envelopes nature at its prime.” (iFabbo)

Because this serum has Dimethicone in it, meaning it can double as a primer, it smoothes lines while protecting skin and creating a canvas to apply makeup on, however be careful if you have sensitive skin! I was pleasantly surprised by Perlier Honey Royal Gold Elixir Facial Serum – first of all, I love the texture of serums, they just go on so smooth and absorb in to my skin quickly. The finish is interesting, it’s just shy of glittery, the pale yellow buttercream colored gel applies translucent but has some gold shimmer in it, not Edward Cullen like but more luminous. After applying foundation, the shimmer is not visible. I’m not sure about the anti-aging as I don’t have an issue with that but it does make my skin feel and look a bit nicer.

It doesn’t really smell like anything. There may be a very faint scent but my nose doesn’t detect anything adverse about it. There is something very luxurious about the elixir, it leaves my skin soft and prepped for my makeup routine and it hasn’t broken me out at all. I feel like my makeup stays better, even in Texas’ humid summer heat. Perlier Honey Royal Gold Elixir feels like it retains the moisture in my skin without letting it get too oily, which is a great accomplishment for this serum. You only need a pump or two to cover your entire face and neck, so this bottle will be lasting me quite a while, even with continuous use. While I very much enjoy this serum, it’s not something that blows my mind, it’s a nice product, nothing less and nothing more.

Perlier Honey Royal Gold Elixir is available on HSN and be sure to search online for HSN codes before purchasing; there’s a $10 off code floating around as well as $20 off for new customers. Don’t forget to share your thoughts by using #PerlierOnHSN.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using iFabbo. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

HSI Professional Argan Oil

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I received HSI Professional Argan Oil Leave In Hair Treatment through Tomoson, all thoughts & opinions are my own.

HSI Professional Argan Oil Hair Treatment

HSI Professional says:

“Discover the Moroccan ‘liquid gold’, the product your hair needs for constant nourishment and incredible shine! The essential nutrients contained in this magic-in-a-bottle product are meant to give your hair a very healthy look, lots of shine and velvet smoothness. This is a leave-in treatment conditioner which feels really light on your hair, without building up residue or being greasy.

HSI Professional recommends the use of Argan Oil as an extra thermal protection before styling your hair with tools such as the flat iron, the hair dryer or the curling iron. It is suitable for all hair types, and you will just be sorry you have not discovered it before! It tames the frizz, it gives a lovely scent to your hair and it makes it soft and shiny. It really seems like your hair is in for a fabulous treat!”

This smells & feels like Moroccanoil! Moroccanoil is a bit more expensive as it’s a name brand but there are also plenty of other kinds of Argan oils available. Moroccanoil is argan oil mixed with a bunch of other ingredients including silicones to provide a different texture to hair. Judging by HSI Professional Argan Oil Hair Treatment’s ingredient label, this stuff isn’t pure Argan oil either but their own formulation of hair treatment.

One con I have about this product is that it does not come with a pump or dropper and any beauty blogger can tell you, it sucks to have a liquid in a jar without any kind of dispenser because you can’t control the amount of product coming out. I was able to pour out a small amount of oil without wasting too much but it’s kind of a pain.

If I apply to damp hair without styling, my wavy hair takes on an almost curly look, beachy waves, I love it and it’s been the easy maintenance free look I’ve been rocking lately.

On the other hand, if I apply to damp hair and blow dry it with a paddle brush, it gives me a sleek smooth, almost flat ironed look which I also like, although it’s not the easiest to maintain with the summer humidity.

I also recently tried HSI Professional Argan Oil Hair Treatment as a heat protector when I curled my hair using my straightener. I ended up lightly spraying the finished result in the end and it held all day while taking care of my ends.

I haven’t seen any visible damage done to hair since I started using this. All that said, there are so many oils and hair specific oils on the market that I think the best route is to find an authentic Argan oil, one without any other added ingredients so you can safely use it on hair, nails, face, body…etc.  I like HSI Professional Argan Oil, it’s been a joy to try and experiment with but I love the functionality of basic oils.
