Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the facial cleansing products I’m using at the moment – Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk.

This product contains ash tree sap, and it’s aimed at people with dry to very dry skin. It promises to eliminate impurities as well as traces of makeup for perfectly cleansed skin that’s fresh and velvety.

Tihis product is easy to use – just use it like any other cleansing cream. 🙂

Alrighty… I’ve been using this product on and off for just over a month now, and I like it very much!

The cleansing milk dissolves and removes makeup well, and it feels great on my skin.

I love the honey fragrance – it’s simply wonderful!

What else? I think this cleansing milk is perfect for dry to very dry skin. My skin certainly agrees!

I would recommend this product if you want a gentle, yet effective cleansing milk.

Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk is available as 200ml. I paid £2.50 (special offer).

Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N, MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 lip products – Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N and MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up.

Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm is one of the better lip balms I’ve used over the past few years. I just finished it, but I’m happy to report that It made my lips feel hydrated. The raspberry flavour is 100% spot on! This lip balm is tinted; the colour of the lip balm matches the colour of the raspberry on the front. I enjoyed using this one!

Manhattan Lipjelly 59N is my favourite gloss-balm type of lip product at the moment. I picked it up as part of a nail polish + lip duo for £1 at Poundland, so I didn’t expect much from it. But guess what, this lip jelly is amazing! It tastes like… paradise (!), it hydrates my lips perfectly, and the sheer tint is super gorgeous. I love it!

MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up is another lip product I’m enjoying very much. This gloss is very nourishing, and it has a beautiful sheer brownish tint. I also love the classic lipstick flavour! The best bit – I paid 50p for this one (bargain bin).

I’m happy with the lip products I’m using at the moment. I do have a few more in my rota, and I will do another post about the other products soon!

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try them? Which lip products are you loving at the moment? Please feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! ☺️

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 Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion, Hand Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream. I bought these products when they went on sale after Christmas.

I’m pretty sure this collection is sold out now, but Yves Rocher seems to be doing the same 2 collections almost every Christmas (it’s usually vanilla and berries), so they might recycle these fragrances for this year’s festive season. Who knows…

Onto the review! Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel is lovely. I would describe the fragrance as a mix of snow and vanilla. The shower gel is gentle and not drying at all, and I’m very happy with it.

Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Perfumed Body Lotion smells just as lovely as the shower gel. I also love the light formula. It’s not the most suitable body lotion for dry skin, but it absorbs in no time without leaving a sticky film behind. I think this is the perfect body lotion for when you’re in a hurry.

Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Hand Cream is my favourite of the bunch! This is the perfect hand cream. It feels instantly nourishing, but it doesn’t feel sticky at all. It makes my hands feel super soft, but it doesn’t feel like “product”. The cute snowy vanilla fragrance is the icing on the cake. Awesome stuff!

If you’re interested in Yves Rocher products, you have to look online since, unfortunately, Yves Rocher ceased trading in the UK 2 weeks ago.

Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about a new fragrance favourite of mine – Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette. I’ve wanted to try this fragrance for ages, but I didn’t want to spend money on another fragrance I might not like. However, when I placed an order a few months ago, this fragrance was a free gift with purchase. 😎

I’ve been wearing this fragrance a lot over the last 2 months, and I’m blown away. This is the most wonderful tropical fragrance one could imagine. It’s all about tiaré flowers with drops of ylang-ylang flower water and a touch of vanilla. It’s very creamy, and it smells much more expensive than it is. I would describe the fragrance as seductive, heavy and heady. However, it would still be perfect for the hottest summer days because it smells like a tropical holiday. 11 STARS!

Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette is available as 100ml eau de toilette. Yves Rocher does matching body products as well. I bought 3 more bottles of this fragrance, and I bought a few bottles of the matching body mist as well. I just don’t want to be without this amazing fragrance!
