As I type this, the clouds are grey and the sky is gloomy, but just yesterday I was enjoying the sun and reading in the garden! Anyway, Yves Rocher are here to save the day and keep it sunny every day with their products perfect for this time of year. If you're new to Yves Rocher as a brand, they are the number one skincare and cosmetics brand in France and they're working their magic on us Brits too. So, without further ado let's see what products they have to offer for us this summer! Better still, all of these products are reduced to almost half price.
This was the product I was most excited about - it screams summer! I've always wanted a dry oil as I think the packaging looks luxurious and high end and of course gives a gorgeous summer scent. The dry oil itself is packed full of shimmering pigments to apply straight onto your skin. It catches the light perfectly, and illuminates the skin leaving you with a subtle shimmer. It's perfect for enhancing a tan - whether you manage to catch a real one or have to fake it like I do! I think the bottle itself would be a little easier to apply if it was a spray, but that's the only thing i would change about the oil. I also love the cute packaging, with it's daisies and full of the shimmering oil, it's the perfect companion for any sunny day. Psst, it's even half price!
Eek, just look at the cute tropical packaging! Just looking at this makes me feel ready for summer and long for a beach! The Lagoon body wash is perfect for using at home or taking on your holidays. Just like the body oil, the Lagoon wash is enriched with Monoi de Tahiti to let you dream of tropical days. It has a lovely scent, lathers up perfectly (just what I like!) and gets me squeaky clean.
Now, I'm always a bit fussy when it comes to my shampoo. Some shampoos can leave me looking like I hadn't even bothered to wash it, so I do tend to stay clear from creamier formulas. However, I was of course willing to give this a good go. The cleansing cream is designed to be a lighter version of shampoo with no sulphates, silicon and paraben. Being a cream, it didn't lather up so I found it hard to blend through my hair at first, but when i rinsed it out I could feel how soft my hair was already. After drying, I hadn't quite got the very squeaky clean feel I love, so i just don't think the cleansing cream worked right for me - but that's nothing to say it won't work wonders for you!
Last but not least, it's the most intriguing of the bunch -a vinegar for your hair! I'm all for vinegar on my chips, but on my hair?! That's definitely a first. So, here we have the rinsing raspberry vinegar to give added shine and vitality to your hair and to remove any build up. The first thing you'll notice when you open it, is just how divine it smells. It's such a strong, sweet smell of raspberries - it's gorgeous! You also get a lot of product for your money as you only need to use a few tiny drops. It has an applicator and all you need to do is squeeze a few drops on before the last rinse of your shower. I was really happy with this and think it gave me a little extra shine and thanks to the stunning scent, I'll be using it again!
