Get Summer Ready With Yves Rocher

Friday, April 24, 2015
As you may know, Yves Rocher is one of my favourite brands! I love the makeup, fragrances, bodycare and haircare products that I have tried from Yves Rocher. I was kindly given the opportunity to try some Yves Rocher summer products from the lovely people at Baobella. 

The product that instantly caught my eye was obviously the *Yves Rocher Monoi De Tahiti Precious Dry Oil (£8.50 sale, 100ml) which is basically shimmery sunshine in a bottle! The dry oil comes in a glass bottle which isn't great for travelling but it looks and feels very luxe and pricy. The oil can be used on the body and hair to add moisture, illumination and it can emphasise a tan. The oil feels very smooth and silky and the glitter is quite fine but noticeable. The oil on the skin is a little too much in terms of shine/shimmer but when used in a very specific area it is effective and looks gorgeous - just use very sparingly. When used in the hair it looks so shiny and healthy although as with any oil, if you use too much it will make your skin/hair look very greasy. Overall rating: ✭✭✭✭✩. 

Another product from the Monoi de Tahiti range is the *Yves Rocher Monoi De Tahiti Lagoon Hair & Body Wash (£1.95 sale, 150ml). It smells slightly similar to the oil however this scent is far stronger. To me it smells like tropical flowers and very sugary sweets; it is quite summery and refreshing. I haven't used it as a shampoo but it is great as a body wash - it doesn't irritate my skin, it lathers very well and it doesn't dry out my skin. Overall rating: ✭✭✭✭✩. 

The next product is one that I have noticed a few times while browsing their website - the *Yves Rocher Radiant Rinsing Vinegar (£5.65 sale, 150ml). It's a bit of an unusual product, I haven't seen anything like it before. The product is to be used just before you rinse your hair for the last time after washing. It smells incredible, like raspberry sweets I had as a child (it doesn't smell anything like vinegar, if you were wondering). I have to apply the product directly to my hair rather than in my hands as it is very runny; it doesn't do anything when applied to the hair or when rinsed out. However when my hair is dry, it is definitely smoother, softer and shinier than normal. It doesn't make my hair look greasy or dry and it doesn't weigh my hair down at all. Overall rating: ✭✭. 

Lastly, the *Yves Rocher Delicate Cleansing Cream (£3.45 sale, 200ml). To be honest I didn't know what this product was when it arrived but there is actually an interesting concept behind it. This 'cleansing cream' was inspired by the 'no pow' no shampoo method in the US whereby instead of using a regular shampoo, you use one that contains cleansing agents so it is supposed to be less harsh, less stripping to the hair. This shampoo doesn't lather up at all - it doesn't contain sulphates, silicones, colourants or parabens (so no SLS which is great and probably one of the reasons it doesn't lather). It is very usual using a shampoo that doesn't lather at all, it feels like I'm using conditioner to wash my hair. The shampoo does seem to clean my hair but it also feels almost over moisturised and my hair became a little greasy quicker than normal. Overall rating: ✩. 

Overall, I love Yves Rocher products on the whole, the rinsing vinegar and precious dry oil are my favourite products from this set. While I think the cleansing cream would be fantastic for a lot of people, it wasn't as great as I expected it to be. I would definitely recommend the Yves Rocher fragrances, makeup, haircare and bodycare I've tried on the whole, it is a great affordable brand. 

Have you tried any of these products from Yves Rocher? What are your  favourites from Yves Rocher?
