Yves Rocher Elixir 7.9 Luminosity Reactivator

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing another Yves Rocher sample – Yves Rocher Elixir 7.9 Luminosity Reactivator. At first I thought this product was a serum – but after I used it, I realised it wasn’t. Ah well, this kind of thing happens.

YR sample Elixir 7.92OK, so the fluid claims to reactivate skin energy and light. And it’s supposed to be applied every morning – after your regular moisturiser or on its own.

I cannot comment on whether this product has any anti-ageing benefits. That’s because I had a sample only.

Based on my experience using this product once, I can say it doesn’t have any immediate blurring effect on wrinkles or fine lines. But let’s get to the ‘luminosity’. 🙂

This product contains tiny shimmer particles which are supposed to reflect light and make your face appear fresh and luminous. The ‘luminous’ effect is only temporary – until you wash your face.

Since the product is called Luminosity Reactivator, I would expect some kind of skin improvement or an enhanced skin glow (or something…) over time. The product might actually achieve something like that – but Yves Rocher’s product description doesn’t mention anything.

What I liked about this product was the subtle, pleasant fragrance and the easy to apply formula. I think this product would work for most skin types. But if you have dry skin, I’d recommend you use your regular moisturiser as a base for this product. I didn’t find it moisturising enough on its own.

In addition, this product doesn’t contain sunscreen, so you need to make sure you protect your skin from the sun – ideally by applying a moisturiser with SPF before using this product.

I won’t purchase the full size product. It’s quite expensive, and Yves Rocher’s web site didn’t state if this product has any lasting benefits – so my guess is it hasn’t. And if I just want shimmer on my face, I can easily find something else (even with SPF) that’s much cheaper.

If you’d like to try it, Yves Rocher Elixir 7.9 Luminosity Reactivator is available as 30ml for £36. But Yves Rocher does half price and BOGOF deals all the time.
