Yves Rocher Riche Crème Day / Night Care Intense Regenerating Care

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher Riche Crème Day / Night Care Intense Regenerating Care. This face cream contains 30 precious oils, rose oil among them, and it promises to smooth out wrinkles and to make skin feel soft and silky. This face cream is aimed at mature skin types, but I had a free sample, so why would I not use it?

I’ve used this face cream as a night cream, and I liked it a lot. I loved the texture – it felt rich and light at the same time, and it felt great on my skin. The next day I woke up to rested looking skin that felt perfectly soft and silky! My review is based on a single use of this face cream, but this little sample made me curious about the product!

Yves Rocher Riche Crème Day / Night Care Intense Regenerating Care is available as 75ml for just under 40 EUR.

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.
