Skin Routine with Perlier…

Happy Monday! We just returned home from a family vacation to Lake Powell and It’s one of my very favorite destinations to spend time with my family! If you’ve never been to Lake Powell or seen a photo, it’s the most beautiful lake that’s completely surrounded by towering red rock cliffs in the heart of the Arizona/Utah deserts. We have so much fun spending a week out on the water playing in the sun, but seriously, my skin gets SO dry (especially my shoulders and legs). Recently, I’ve been using the Perlier products each time after I shower or take a bath and I can’t believe what it’s done for my skin! My skin feels hydrated again and so smooth every time I use it (even Drew noticed, which is a big deal ;).
  • First, I use the Honey Body Tightening Gel after I shave my legs and soap up. I love this stuff because it gets all of my dead skin off, smells amazing and my skin feels brand knew after using it! It’s perfect when I’m peeling from a sunburn too, it gets all the flaky skin right off! (I apply this with a loofah).
  • Once I’m dried off and out of the bath, I apply the Honey Revitalizing Body Butter all over from my body from the neck down. It’s a thicker formula and way more hydrating to my skin than a typical body lotion BUT it’s not oily!
  • Next, I use the Honey After Bath Body Water. I don’t use this everyday but always do if I’m wearing a dress or a skirt because it gives my skin a really pretty sheen to it, that’s super natural looking. (Here I’m wearing both the Body butter and the Body water together, and you can see what I mean by the sheen).
  • I let the body butter and body water soak into my skin while I do my hair and makeup and then I finish off with the Honey and Mint Hand Cream. I love this stuff because my hands tend to get super dry. I’ve had minor eczema on my hands from the time I was little and although it’s gotten better with age, I’ve found I need to use a hand cream daily to keep my hands soft.

    I’m totally going to have to try these, I have super dry skin and I’m always looking for great skin products. Also I love your bar cart in the bathroom! That’s such a cute idea! :)

  6. Alexa says:

    I’m so confused… is it Biore, or Jergens, or La Mer or this BS that’s your OMGmyskincare routine?!? #allaboutthemoney

    • Rachel Parcell says:


      Thanks for your comment. Because of my blog, I’m lucky enough to be able to test out hundreds of different products. I don’t post anything that I haven’t tried and loved. There are a lot of behind the scenes that my readers don’t see. While it may look to you like I post about every product out there, I’ve turned down way more brands and products than I’ve posted because either I don’t like it or the brand doesn’t fit with me or my reader. There’s thousands and thousands of different skin products out there and I think it’s okay to love more than one.

      Hopefully this gives you better insight as to why I choose to talk about Perlier.

      Thanks so much for reading!

      xo, Rach

    Just wanted to let you know that I had the exact same candle and I let it get down really low thinking it would burn out by itself but instead the WHOLE TIN caught on fire. I love those Anthro candles but I’m sticking to glass now.

    Where did you get your robe?

  67. Michelle says:

    Beautiful bathroom. Please share sources for the bath tub and cart.
    Thank you!

  68. R says:

    You have such a beautiful and inspirational blog. Do you happen to know what brand your gold cart is?!!? (I always check on One Kings Lane too late and the item is already sold out… I would love to search for it elsewhere). Also, are those blankets on the bottom of the cart or towels? Do you mind sharing a brand/source and colors? Thanks so much!

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Unfortunately I don’t know the brand of bar cart. I actually found this one by searching brass bar cart on google. Maybe you’ll find the same one or similar style by doing that. I hope you find it, good luck!

      They’re towels and I got them from Pottery Barn outlet about 4 years ago.

      Thanks for reading!



      • Rory says:

        Oh, you are so sweet! I really appreciate you getting back to me. I’ll try searching for it that way. One last question (if you don’t mind)… Is your cart the gold finish or bronze finish? The gold one is gone (One Kings Lane) but they still have the bronze finish available… Thanks again! Xx

  69. Love your hair!

    I actually just saw a photo from this post on theeverygirl. I just wanted to make you aware of this in case they didn’t have permission to use your photos. Normally, I wouldn’t think twice of it, as I believe the writers there are awesome, but it struck me as really odd – it’s a photo of you with their brand logo on it. I recognized you immediately and got excited because I thought that you may have written it. If they have your permission, just ignore this comment. I just know how bummed I would be if this happened to me. Here is the link:

    Also, I can’t believe how ridiculous people are about you trying different products. I have about six different face creams in my bathroom right now.

    Much love,
    – Another Rachel

    • Rachel Parcell says:


      Thanks so much for letting me know! They didn’t have my permission but at least they did provide a link back to my site :)

      I’m glad to hear I’m not the only person who uses more than one face cream!

      Thanks so much for reading my blog!

    Hi! May I ask what are the wall colors in your master bathroom and kitchen, please? I love the elegant clean look. Thanks

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
