Yves Rocher Collection Été

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance I’ve been using on and off since April or May – Yves Rocher Collection Été. This limited edition fragrance contains the following notes: bergamot, mandarin, lemon, lemon blossom and woody notes.

I think YR Collection Été is a very beautiful summer fragrance. It bursts with citrus freshness, but it also has a sunny feel to it. It smells like a relaxing holiday. 😍 If I were to assign a colour to this fragrance, it would be pastel yellow.

I’m enjoying this fragrance quite a bit, and I can definitely see myself finishing it this summer! Yves Rocher Collection Été is a limited edition fragrance. It’s available as 75ml.

Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist.

This body mist contains a number of moisturising ingredients, such as glycerin, castor oil and aloe leaf juice. It also contains flower extracts of exotic Tahitian gardenias!

I’ve been using this body mist on and off for a little while, and I love it! It has the most wonderful gardenia fragrance one could imagine. It’s warm, creamy, but it also feels transparent. This body mist is lovely as a spring and summer fragrance!

This body mist is also lightly hydrating. I like to spray it down my back – and it makes my skin super soft!

If you’re interested, Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist is available as 125ml. I paid £10.99 for a pack of 3 bottles (special offer before Yves Rocher closed its UK online shop).

Yves Rocher Jardin Des Nymphes Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s short post is about one of the fragrances I’m using at the moment – Yves Rocher Jardin Des Nymphes Eau De Toilette. This is a limited edition fragrance which is based on floral and aquatic notes.

This fragrance was a blind-buy, so I didn’t know what to expect. And since I’m not a big fan of fragrances with water lily or lotus, I was wondering whether I should have given this fragrance a pass…

Well, it turns out that this fragrance is actually quite alright. Whilst Jardin des Nymphes has a strong water lily feel to it, I do like it because, fortunately, it doesn’t have that smothering density that the overwhelming majority of aquatic fragrances have. Jardin des Nymphes feels light and airy, and I enjoy wearing it to the office.

Yves Rocher Jardin Des Nymphes Eau De Toilette is available as 75ml. It’s a limited edition from a while back, but it can still be found online.

Yves Rocher Baies Des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 winter-themed limited edition products – Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel and Perfumed Body Lotion. I’m enjoying these products very much, and here’s why.

Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel is lovely! It lathers up very well, but it doesn’t feel drying at all. The mixed berry fragrance is perfect – it’s crisp and cool. Very nice!

Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Perfumed Body Lotion is great! It feels more like a fluid than a lotion, it’s 100% non-sticky, but it’s surprisingly rich and nourishing. This body lotion makes my skin feel super soft, and I love it!

Based on my experience, I would recommend these products. Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel and Perfumed Body Lotion are available as 200ml each. I paid £3.30 in total for both products.

Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel & Silky Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 vanilla-scented products I’m using at the moment – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel & Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion.

Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel is simply lovely. It feels cleansing, yet not drying, and the sweet and warm vanilla fragrance is simply wonderful. I love it!
YR Vanilla
Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion is just as amazing as the shower gel. This body lotion is very hydrating, and the dreamy vanilla fragrance lingers quite a bit.

Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel & Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion are available as 50ml (seasonal), 200ml and 400ml.

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.
