Yves Rocher Beauty Review

I have never tried products from the beauty brand Yves Rocher before. Did you know they are the number 1 beauty care brand in France? 

History

Yves Rocher started the brand in the 1950's in France after a local healer gave him a secret recipe for a cream. Yves made it by hand and before he knew it, it was a sell out. Through his passion for plants and years of study he created the 'Botanical Beauty' ethos, and now Yves Rocher sell to over 30 million women each year.

Products

There are many products in the Yves Rocher brand, from face care, body care and haircare to makeup to nutrition and well being - a complete holistic approach to beauty.



I was sent some complimentary products for a honest review. At the moment these products are on special offer, I have posted the offer price below.

Mono├» de Tahiti Precious Dry Oil - £8.50

When I was younger I used to have oily skin, but since my 40's I have noticed my skin getting drier. I would have never used a dry oil product in the past so I wasn't sure what to expect from this. Although this is an oil, this product absorbs easily and quickly into the skin. It has a tropical floral fragrance with a slight nutty smell. I wasn't too keen on the fragrance, as I found it too sweet for me but don't let that put you off as the product works really well.

The shimmering particles give a slight sheen to your skin, and looks particularly attractive on legs and shoulders for that sunkissed look. It is also mineral oil and paraben free which is a great plus point. I am definitely packing this when I go on holiday next. 

Eclat Radiance Rinsing Vinegar - £5.65

A rinsing vinegar is used to give extra shine to the hair after shampooing. This silicone free formula has the delightful fragrance of raspberries with no smell of vinegar at all ( I was concerned about that!) You apply it to your hair after shampooing, leave for a minute or so, and then rinse off with water. I was quite sceptical about this product, but my hair did feel slinky after use, and smooth to the touch. It is formulated to remove mineral build up too.

Delicate Cleansing Cream Low Shampoo - £3.45

The concept behind a 'low' shampoo is that it doesn't foam but it is rich in cleansing agents. You apply it by spreading the product with your fingers through your hair from roots to ends, rubbing gently in, and then you rinse away with water. 

Ok this takes a little getting used to if you expect your shampoo to produce lots of foam and suds, but it works very well and my hair was squeaky clean after using it. It has a light floral scent and no sulphate parabens, silicon or colourings too, so you can be kind to the environment and your hair at the same time. 

Monoi De Tahiti Lagoon hair and body wash - £1.95

The Mono├» de Tahiti Lagoon hair and body wash is formulated to remove every trace of sand and sun cream - perfect for those beach holidays in the sun. What I liked about this product is the soft lather that felt nourishing too. It has a distinctive smell that reminded me of tropical flowers, with a hint of almond underneath and it is paraben and ethoxylate free. This two in one formula is now only £1.95 so a great price too. 

This would be great to pack in your suitcase for holidays, or even to take down the gym or swimming pool, to freshen up quickly.

Conclusion
Of all these products my favourite was the Yves Rocher Eclat Radiance Rinsing Vinegar. I didn't expect much from this product but it really changed my mind as my hair looked more shiny without the added weight of conditioners and I adored the raspberry fragrance too.

As a company Yves Rocher has great credentials, and was one of the first companies not to test their products on animals. If you like natural products and haven't used Yves Rocher before, give them a try.

  1. I'm trying to think, and you know what? I don't think I have tried Yves Rocher before - if I have it's been a drive-by purchase.

    The Dry Oil sounds good as I do get dry skin sometimes, especially in summer when my arms and legs are a bit more exposed to the elements.

    I am really intrigued by the Vinegar though, I have quite heavy hair anyhow so product build up can be 'a thing'. I'm also a sucker for things that smell sweet, hehe. Will be sure to check that one out!

  4. I used to use Yves Rocher when I was a teenager (which gives you an idea how long they've been about)! They used to do the most beautiful catalogues and I remember being entranced by how gorgeous the models' skin was - tough when you're going through the pimply stage! I'd certainly use their products again.

    1. I think a vinegar rinse is an old fashioned remedy to keep hair shiny. It smells beautiful though!

  8. I always see Yves Rocher when I'm in Paris (I don't go that often, I hasten to add) but I've never bought anything by the brand. I'm a big fan of dry oils though, especially if you want to wear an oil for day and find most regular ones a bit on the heavy side. Tx

  9. Though I have not tried anything from this brand before but will surely give it a try after reading your review. Do they have anything for the excessive sweating treatment to keep that excessive sweat at bay?
