My Current Pamper Products Ft. Yves Rocher

Friday, January 09, 2015
During the colder months I feel as though pampering sessions are more luxurious and needed due to the horrible weather and central heating which can play havoc with my skin. At least once a week I like to have a complete, but quick and easy, pamper evening. One of my favourite brands of 2014 is Yves Rocher and I was kindly sent a pamper package of treats from Baobella to test out!

Baobella Boutique is an online beauty website stocking brands such as Nuxe, Rapid Lash, Real Techniques, Clarins, Peter Thomas Roth and other brands such as French and Asian brands which are not as assessable in the UK such as Shiseido, Etude House, Holika Holika, Dolly Wink and of course Yves Rocher. 

I will start with my favourite product from the set I was sent, the *Yves Rocher Organic Oats Silky Cream (£13.50, 200ml) which comes in an adorable kilner type tub. The scent of this body lotion is so relaxing, soothing and comforting although it is quite a floral, fresh scent as well. It applies so smoothly to the skin leaving my skin so incredibly soft, smooth and perfectly moisturised. I love to use this in the evenings especially after using a body scrub as it feels so nourishing and I'm convinced that the relaxing, comforting scent has been helping me sleep - which is no mean feat as I have so much trouble trying to sleep! I can even smell the product on my hands even after washing them numerous times; I would definitely recommend this product!

Next up in the pamper product line up is the *Yves Rocher Organic Lavender Anti-Fatigue Iced Gel (£5, 50ml) which smells like what I imagine lavender toothpaste to smell like - minty but floral! I've been using this on my feet which I have to admit do get neglected in my pamper routine. The gel feels so refreshing, cooling and soothing when applied and it absorbs very quickly so you can put your cosy bed socks on almost straight afterwards. 

My hands suffer the most at this time of the year, firstly as my skin type is quite dry and I have eczema but also because of my refusal to wear gloves - I hate gloves! So an intense hand cream is a daily essential for me as well as a pamper product. The *Yves Rocher Long Lasting Moisturising Hand Cream (£1.50, 30ml, available in numerous sizes) is a great little hand cream and I have tried a lot! As with all Yves Rocher products, it smells gorgeous, so floral, light and fresh without being heavy or something you would find in your grandmas handbag. It applies smoothly and quickly and it absorbs fairly quickly too which is one of the main things I look for in a hand cream. Also it doesn't irritate the eczema on my hand, however everyones skin is different. 

Last but not least to finish off the pampering is the *Yves Rocher Coconut Fizzy Bath Cube (£1.50, 15g) which I actually used in a homemade foot bath. It smells really nice although coconut isn't a favourite scent of mine. It is a nice little bath fizzed but I personally prefer Lush or Bomb Cosmetics bath fizzers/bombs but if you are not a fan of them then you should definitely check out the Yves Rocher bath cubes - there are quite a few scents to choose from. 

Overall, I am very happy with the products I received and my pamper routine is now vastly improved which my skin has definitely thanked me for. My favourite product has to be the organic oats silky cream which I will definitely have to purchase when this massive tub runs out! Also definitely check out Baobella, they stock quite a few brands that are quite hard to find in the UK; I definitely want to try some makeup from the Asian beauty brands stocked on their online boutique. 

Have you tried any products from Yves Rocher or Baobella? What are your pamper night essentials?

  8. I love Yves Rocher products, they are fab. The bath cube sounds lovely - great idea to use it in a foot bath.... we don't have a bathtub, so this would be a great idea to use up my Lush bathbombs sitting in the cupboard!
