Yves Rocher Product Giveaway and new product Reviews

Hi friends,

I am back with a giveaway (see bottom of the post), this one is for Yves Rocher Products.

Yves Rocher is currently running a sale with a lot of products 50% off and as always, they are very generous with the gifts with purchase!!


Here is the video review:

Products mentioned in the video:

2-in-1 Cleanser + Toner


2-in-1 Cleanser + Toner

I purchased this cleanser to alternate with my YR Micellar Water Cleanser and fell in love with it. If you like wipe off cleansers similar to cold creams, this one is definitely for you. It is very gentle and very fluid. I apply it directly to my dry face and smooth it on all over, including my eyes. Though you can wipe it off with tissues, I prefer to use a slightly damp face cloth. It leaves my skin clean of any makeup residue, including eye makeup, without feeling dry. There have been times when I did not even feel the need to add a moisturizer afterwards. Unlike traditional cold creams, this is more like a milk/lotion that will not leave a greasy residue on your face. I have been using it for over 2 weeks now and have experienced no breakouts or enlarge pores. Overall, my skin looks more even as well. This is great as a night time routine!

"Enriched with flower water! The mildness of a milk and the freshness of a lotion combined in a single gesture. An ultra-practical beauty gesture for quick, easy daily cleansing: perfect for all women on the lookout for simplicity and natural products. The Plus : its melting gel texture leaves a non-sticky, very soft finish."

$11.50  $6.50  (currently 43% off)

1-Minute Nourishing-Repairing Mask


1-Minute Nourishing-Repairing Mask

You may know by now that my hair is unbelievably difficult to manage. It is super curly, but not kinky enough to maintain its curls. I am constantly on the lookout for a product that will nourish my hair and leave it soft and manageable without using a blow dryer (I would say that 90% of the time, I let my hair air dry).
I have tried so many products I would need a blog post dedicated solely to listing them all. One big rave lately has been the Macademia Hair Mask, but really who can afford that $33 per jar!!
I saw this one on the YR site and figured I really did not have much to lose.
Overall, this is a good conditioner, you would apply it after shampooing and leave it on for 5 minutes. I usually start my shower by washing hair and applying conditioner, combing it through, then moving on to body washing. This is a nice product, I find that it does not weigh down my hair and leaves my hair silky, and helps my curls stay in shape. If you have wavy or straight hair, this would be an awesome mask for you. I like it.
One drawback for me is the size of the container itself, there is not a huge amount of product, I would say that there are about 6-8 applications there. It is one of YR's Best Sellers as well as it received great reviews.

"Made with Oat milk, this rich, buttery-textured treatment infuses your hair with elements essential to its nutrition and repair! It restructures your hair without weighing it down, leaving it supple and soft, with restored body and vitality.The Plus: It is enriched with Shea Butter for its reparative power!- May also be used as a conditioner- Tested under dermatological supervision- Silicone & paraben free formula"

Detangling Styling Water


Detangling Styling Water

I have been on the market for a leave-in hair conditioner/styling water. I have been satisfied with some of the products I have found thus far, however, as I am showing signs of hair loss and my discovering that I am allergic to Nickel (a metal often contained in hair products) I want to veer more towards natural hair products. I found this on the YR site and decided to give it a try.
First, this is a very inexpensive product ($9) and the bottle itself is huge (10 fl.oz). The sprayer is of good quality as it sprays a fine mist rather than a blob of product onto your hair. It smells wonderful too, obviously herbal with Linden extracts. I find that it finishes my hair nicely in the morning, I spray it directly only towel dried hair, clip my bangs and I am out the door. I usually let my hair dry in the car on my way to work and thus far, my hair has continued to look styled and put together, without the fuss of having to style it. I am very happy with this product and will repurchase it! Another YR Best Seller!

"An extra-mild styling water with a captivating floral scent that transforms hair to the touch: thicker, more supple, hair is well-groomed and easy-to-style.The Plus: its softening formulaCare for all hair types.Tested under dermatological supervision.Silicone & paraben free formula"

Pure Light - Light & Luminous Foundation


Pure Light - Light & Luminous Foundation

For a long time, I did not think that any product would beat my MAC Foundation. I saw this product on sale and decided to give it a try since it looked more like a sheer foundation which is what I need in the summer.
My opinion is that this product is absolutely amazing! I am completely head over heels with it and plan on purchasing a few more to stock up. This is a very fluid foundation that applies evenly (no streak along the neckline). I find that it blends immediately and does a great job evening out my skin. I barely use concealers now as a result. It also has amazing staying power without suffocating my skin, clogging my pores or looking running off my face. I always use a brush to apply foundation, but quite frankly this one does a great job when applied directly onto the skin with fingers alone! I use the Rose light(I have a fair complexion and tend to like ivory to beige products on my skin.

"For the very first time, Yves Rocher Botanical Beauty Research has introduced radiance boosting Rice extract in a new foundation. Each time you use it, your skin regains vitality and radiance, becoming softer and more luminous. Its ultra-fresh light moisturizing texture is easy to apply uniformly. It provides maximum comfort for a sensation of no makeup and impeccable natural coverage. The skin's texture is visibly smoothed and the complexion is uniform. This fluid foundation Pure Light - Light & Luminous Foundation is available in 12 shades adapted to fair, dark and very dark skin tones. The skin breathes, the complexion is perfect, radiant and luminous. The Plus: Its practical elongated pump dispenser for a better grip!"

  1. Nice giveaway and international! (I am not entering as I have dry/eczma type skin) but I will try out some of their other products... look good and not to expensive..anyway I was wondering do you use anything on your eyebrows or are they a naturally strong colour/shape? I colour mine quite often but they are a bit bald although I am in my thirties!

    1. Ah ah! It s funny that you mention my eyebrows as I had just reshaped them that morning! I have one "hole" on the right side that is tiny but will not make the brow even and straight so I fill it in with a tiny amout of eyeshadow in the same shade and put on a layer of clear mascara to seal it. I think the clear mascara darkens them a bit but overall this is my brow color. I am sorry about your skin condition, u could contact them and ask what is suitable for your skin, I would imagine that since there are no harsh chemicals and they re all botonical none of the products would exacerbate your condition.

  2. I'm entering the giveaway! I'm subscribed to your youtube and facebook. I have to products I love I use pond's cold cream every day to wash my face and Loreal age perfect the nightbottle. I also have found that apple cider vinegar is the best astrigent for my skin:)

    1. Apple Cider Vinegar? Wow, I have to try that! thanks for sharing Yvi!

  3. I used to use Apple cider Vinegar as a rinse on my hair when it was long (dark brown, thick and straight) it was brilliant, I always got compliments, even though I used any shampoo which was less than $2 sometimes I would tell people other times I would think if only you knew my cheap hair trick! although probably wouldn't work so well on other hair types...oh and you would have to like the smell which I do!
