Reducing My Oldies Stash – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Shower Gel & Silky Lotion

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 products that have been sitting in my stash for quite some time – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Shower Gel & Silky Lotion. 🙂

The shower gel is simply amazing. It leaves my skin feeling cleansed but not stripped. And the fragrance is the most wonderful sweet and juicy raspberry fragrance. Awesome stuff!

The silky lotion is pretty much perfect as well. It smells just as great as the shower gel. And I love the formula – the body lotion is quick and easy to apply, and it melts into the skin (great for workday mornings). I love it!

I think these 2 products are sensational. Because of this I’m sad that Yves Rocher discontinued the entire raspberry collection. However, it appears that Yves Rocher seems to reinvent the Les Plaisirs Nature collection every couple of months – so I hope they’ll reintroduce the raspberry collection. If they do, I’ll be stocking up! 🙂

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Yves Rocher Lemon Basil Refreshing Shower Gel

Hi there! It’s been a while since I bought Yves Rocher’s Lemon Basil Refreshing Shower Gel.

But since this shower gel has now been repackaged and reintroduced as part of Yves Rocher’s Plaisirs Nature collection, I thought I should finally try it!

This shower gel contains essential oils of lemon and basil, and it promises to cleanse skin gently and to leave skin smelling delicately perfumed.

Is it good? Yes, I think this shower gel is quite nice. It doesn’t dry out my skin, and the fresh fragrance is perfect for spring and summer. I really enjoy it!

Now that Yves Rocher recycled this fragrance for their Plaisirs Nature collection, they offer several Lemon Basil products: 200ml shower gel, 400ml shower gel, 200ml exfoliating shower gel and 15g bath cube.

Have you tried this product? How did you like it? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

Yves Rocher Apple Star Anise Refreshing Fragrance Mist

uploadHi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher’s Apple Star Anise Refreshing Fragrance Mist which I’ve been using a lot this summer.

I bought this 100ml fragrance mist (along with the apple star anise shower gel and shower scrub) when it was on sale (clearance, actually) for £2.70. Dirt cheap, I know! 🙂

Now let’s get to the actual review! I think this fragrance mist is very nice. I’ve said it before and I say it again – Yves Rocher’s apple star anise product line is the most natural smelling apple-scented product line I’ve ever come across.

And this fragrance mist is no exception. The apple scent is fresh, natural and juicy. Well done, Yves Rocher!

I’m also pleased with the longevity of this fragrance mist. The lovely apple scent lasts several hours on my skin, and it basically lasts forever (well, until the next wash) on my scarves.

What’s not great is that this fragrance mist is (was) a limited edition from last summer, so I can’t buy it again. 😦

I really hope Yves Rocher kept the formula safe and they’ll relaunch the entire collection at some point. I’d certainly repurchase the shower gel, the scrub and the fragrance mist!

Have you tried this fragrance or any other products from Yves Rocher’s apple star anise collection? How did you like them? Feel free to comment if you want to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Yves Rocher Apple Star Anise Refreshing Exfoliating Shower Gel

YR Exfoliating Shower Apple AniseHi there! Not too long ago I told you I went nuts at Yves Rocher’s clearance sale. And I’ve already reviewed Yves Rocher’s Apple Star Anise Shower Gel.

And now that I’ve finally tried Yves Rocher’s Apple Star Anise Refreshing Exfoliating Shower Gel, I’ll tell you what this product’s like.

This exfoliating shower gel claims to be gentle enough for daily use. And it containts kiwi seeds and apricot kernel powder – these two ingredients are meant to give your skin a good scrub!

So how’s the product? It’s really good. It exfoliates my skin, but it’s also gentle. I don’t use it every day, but I think I could.

The fresh and sunny apple scent is very authentic. Other manufacturers of toiletries should take note because this is the apple fragrance they should aim for!

All in all, this is a very nice exfoliating shower gel. It feels good, it smells good, it’s refreshing… I should have bought two bottles! 🙂 The exfoliating shower gel is/was (?) available as 200ml (£4.50). I found it in the clearance sale for just under £2. I think Yves Rocher should consider making it a permanent edition!

Yves Rocher Apple Star Anise Refreshing Shower Gel

Yves Rocher Apple Star Anise Shower GelHi there! I bought lots of Yves Rocher products recently – including a few limited editions.

Today I’ll tell you what I think about Yves Rocher’s Apple Star Anise Refreshing Shower Gel.

I thought this was a Christmas-themed product – but I was wrong.

Apparently Yves Rocher’s apple & star anise collection was a limited edition from last summer! But let’s move on to the actual product review. 🙂

The shower gel smells pleasant and refreshing. The apple frragrance isn’t too tangy (which is a good thing in my book), it’s more like a sunny apple scent.

The shower gel lathers up nicely without being too harsh on my skin. Great quality.

The refreshing shower gel is (was?) available as 50ml (£1.95) and 400ml (£5.50). I found this product for 90p in the clearance sale.
