As an iFabbo member, I often look forward to trying new products and reviewing them for you guys! It’s so much fun to get a neat little care package on my doorstep. This month, I was selected to try the Royal Elixir Facial Serum from Perlier, an Italian luxury cosmetic company. FYI: They are also a cruelty free brand. I loved Perlier’s Sparkling Body Water that I received last summer, so I was really excited to try something else by the same company.
Major features are:
- Exclusive and innovative Youth Elixir with fresh Royal Jelly and other key botanical ingredients
- Helps aged skin appear renewed and more youthful-looking
- Non-irritating complex of ingredients may be used around the eye area
- Formula in which all water has been replaced by rose distillate
- Rose distillate has been shown to have moisturizing and toning properties
- Formula contains approximately 70% functional key ingredients
The first thing that caught my eye was the glamorous packaging. You can see here how sleek and fancy it looks! I love the gold accents, and the product itself is actually gold, too which you can see here as well.
The consistency of the serum was a bit thick, so I only used one pump to cover my whole face. It had a smooth feel to it, but took a little bit of time to absorb into my skin. However, despite the consistency of the product, I did enjoy the little bit of glimmer that the serum had inside. One of my students told me I looked sparkly. How nice!
The scent isn’t anything to write home about. For some reason I really excited to be blown away by the scent. I have one other honey body butter (by another brand), that smells like honey and almonds. I kind of wanted that same scent, but that’s just my own two cents. I love when things smell the way I expect them to smell.
After about a week and half of using this product every morning as a base to my makeup, I found that my skin is definitely nice and smooth, but the anti-aging claims didn’t really have a factor in my review. Would you use a product like this? Have you tried Perlier products?
