100% Vegan – Yves Rocher Elixir Jeunesse Night Care

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Yves Rocher Elixir Jeunesse Night Care. This night cream promises to replenish skin and to restore its natural glow. It also claims to make lines and wrinkles appear smoother. And according to Yves Rocher, this product is vegan. I received a sample, so my review is based on a single use.

Yves Rocher’s facial skin care has generally left me unimpressed, but this product is actually very good! It provided plenty of lightweight hydration without being greasy. The cream felt great on my skin when I went to bed, and my skin felt soft, hydrated, smooth (!) and happy when I got up the next day. I was very impressed! I think this is a great night cream, and I would recommend it!

Yves Rocher Elixir Jeunesse Night Care is available as 50ml. Since Yves Rocher closed its UK operations due to the Brexit mess (I don’t blame them…), you’d either have to go through third party online retailers or you’d have to pick it up next time you’re abroad.

Yves Rocher Complete Anti-Age Global Serum

Hi there! Not too long ago I got this Complete Anti-Aging Serum sample from Yves Rocher’s Anti-Age Global product line. This serum claims to leave skin “delightfully soft and velvety”, and it’s meant to be used with the Anti-Age Global day cream. I didn’t get a sample of the day cream, though.

YR sample Anti Age Global Serum2I’ve now tried this serum (under my trusted Olay moisturiser) and I’d like to share my findings with you.

The formula of this serum is very thin, almost like water. I massaged it into my skin – very gently – until it had sunk in.

Unfortunately the serum didn’t feel great on my skin. It felt more like a mattifying moisturiser for oily skin. Unsurprisingly, this didn’t feel great on my dry skin at all.

In summary, my skin didn’t feel velvety or soft. My skin actually felt tight and in desperate need of a moisturiser. I left my skin and the serum alone for a few minutes because I had to know if the product would change for the better. But it didn’t.

I also checked my face in the mirror to see whether the serum had any instant smoothing properties. But that’s another no. (So I gave up and put some moisturiser on my skin.) On a positive note, the serum smelled pleasant and it didn’t sting or burn.

Based on my experience with this product, I wouldn’t recommend it. Yes, I used the serum once only. But that was enough for me to be sure I won’t be buying the full size product.

If you want to give this Complete Anti-Aging Serum from Yves Rocher’s Anti-Age Global product line a try, the 30ml bottle is available for £50. Yves Rocher does half price and BOGOF deals all the time, but I’d definitely recommend you ask for a sample before blind-buying this product.
