How are you doing? Hope you’ve all had a wonderful week 🙂
Today’s post is yet another review. I know last week’s posts were all reviews but this one’s a bit different 😛 As you may know, I move to France a little over 3 months ago and here there’s a quite famous brand called Yves Rocher, which is very similar to The Body Shop or Bourjois – they’re all quite affordable and sell both skincare and make-up.
In Portugal, you could only get Yves Rocher by catalogue and it wasn’t so easy to find someone who sold this brand, but I knew they had interesting stuff and I was curious to try their products.
I was almost running out of my Vitamin E Face Mask, from The Body Shop, so I needed to buy a new one. We went into an Yves Rocher store one day and I saw they had a face mask I was interested in trying with a 50% discount (it was reduced from €13,90 / $15,50 / £10,50 to €6,95 / $7,75 / £5,25!) so I decided to bring it home with me.
This range, for those of you familiar with The Body Shop, is a mix between the Vitamin E range and the Nutriganics one, because it’s an hydrating range like the former but formulated with natural ingredients, like the latter.
You are supposed to apply it twice a week, leaving it on for 5 minutes and then removing the excess with a cotton pad.
Straight away, I loved two things about it:
♥ The scent. I’m very picky with scents but this one is quite fresh, subtle and summery, so I love it!
♥ The formula. It’s creamy and rich without being too thick or greasy. It’s quite light and fresh as well.
Once I actually first applied it to my face, I loved it even more! You can feel it sinking into your skin immediately, doing its job. It really feels light-weight on your face as well, not greasy at all but still incredibly moisturising.
The first time I applied it, I did so in the evening, before I went to bed, so that the residue from it could act while I got my beauty sleep. The next day, the difference on my skin was noticeable! It looked healthier, like it was glowing from within!
♥ Hydra Vegétal, Yves Rocher (original price) €13,90 / $15,50 / £10,50 for 0.75 ml (2,54 oz), which means €18,53 / $20,68 / £13,97 for 100 ml (3,38 oz).
♥ Vitamin E Face Mask, The Body Shop: €20 / $22 / £15 for 100 ml (3,38 oz).
♥ Intensive Moisturising Mask, Rituals: €14,50 / $16,20 / £10,90 for 75 ml (2,54 oz), which means €19,33 / $21,58 / £14,57 for 100 ml (3,38 oz).
→ Overall, I’m very happy with this mask, it works perfectly, has almost 100% natural ingredients and it’s affordable as well! I’ve got nothing bad to say about it at all and would recommend it to everyone! 🙂
Have you guys ever tried Yves Rocher? If so, which product and what did you think of it?
Also, I would love to know your favourite hydrating mask! 🙂
