I don't know about you but since we've left the busy festive season behind I've really been suffering from the January blues, so I have to admit I was in need of a little TLC in the form of a good pamper. The forgetfulness in me always seems to forget about pampering my body with lotions and potions, but that has changed this year, making sure I use lotions and creams daily to give my skin the pampering it needs.
Yves Rocher is a French botanical beauty brand founded in 1959 and ranked as France's number one selling makeup and skincare brand, providing specially-grown botanical beauty products. While I've heard of Yves Rocher, I have to admit that I hadn't actually tried any of their products previously, so naturally I jumped at the chance to give their skin range a shot.
Starting with the Yves Rocher Organic Oats Silky Cream, I have fallen in love with this product. The texture is so soft and creamy, and applies really easily into the skin, drying within a matter of minutes. One of my main gripes with body lotion is trying a formula and having to stand there (think scarecrow poses) waiting for the lotion to dry, but this sinks into the skin really quickly, and leaves me skin feeling silky soft without any greasiness. I really like the scent of this also it's hard to explain but it's very natural, without being too overpowering which is great but still enough power to leave a subtle scent on the skin. I can't help but mention also that I am in love with the jar style packaging, which will make a great recycle once I've finished the lotion. For £13.50 it is slightly pricey (for what I'd pay anyway) but I find that this feels quite luxurious on the skin and definitely worth every penny!
I was most intrigued by the Yves Rocher Anti-fatigue Ice Gel, packed with lavender and peppermint this is designed for your legs and feet. I always end up neglecting my feet, which I know I shouldn't as they suffer a lot of pressure during the day so I knew this was going to be a must have product. Once applied I found the cooling effect really lovely and soothing on my feet, and the texture wasn't too sticky as I did imagine having to swing my feet over my bed for a good 20 mins - not the case. I find this the perfect bedtime treat for my feet and for £5.00 is a life saver.
Next up a winter essential, in the form of Yves Rocher's Long-lasting Moisturising Hand Cream. This has been a lifesaver for me, from the first use I noticed a big improvement leaving my hands a lot softer. When you apply this it doesn't feel sticky nor do you have to wait ages for it to sink into the skin, I love the scent of this it's quite floral and for £3.90 makes the perfect addition for any handbag.
Last but not least the Yves Rocher Fizzy bath cube, now I will say don't be put off by the size of this as I was to begin with in comparison to bigger bath bombs. I couldn't believe how well this fizzed when placed in the bath, creating a milky and bubbly bath. The only negative thing for me would be the scent as I'm not a big fan of coconut scent and just found it a little overpowering for my liking. However if you are a fan of coconut you will love this, as the scent is strong for such a little bath cube and for £1.50 is an absolute steal!
Overall I have fell in love with Yves Rocher and can see why they are so highly rated, for natural products they have really impressed me. These are perfect for a pampering night in, and would recommend giving their site a gander as they have a lot of products on offer. Have you tried Yves Rocher before? What are your favourite products from their range?
