Skincare :: The New Yves Rocher Cleansers - Rejuvenating Effect

Po polsku

Yves Rocher has recently launched the new line of cleansers with 3 detoxifyng teas. As the producer claims: "green tea extract detoxifies by its antioxidant action, white tea extract detoxifies by re-oxygenating cells, Madagascar tea extract detoxifies by stimulating cellular defenses." No animal ingredients were used. Bottles are eco-friendly: they contain recycled plastic for reduced plastic consumption. The line consists of six products (Velvety Cleansing Milk Smoothing Effect, Express Cleansing Wipes De-Crinkling Effect, Rich Cream Cleanser Re-Nutritive Effect, Micellar Cleansing Water Face, Eyes, Lips, Perfecting Toning Lotion Anti-Fatigue Effect, Exfoliating Foam Cleanser Resurfacing Effect). I’ve tried three of them: Micellar Cleansing Water (free sample, 50 ml), Perfecting Toning Lotion, Exfoilating Foam Cleanser.






Micellar Cleansing Water Face, Eyes, Lips
Packaging is elegant and good quality. The water is herbal scented, removes all makeup quite efficiently provided it’s not waterproof. If you don’t want panda eyes effect you’d need a special makeup remover for waterproof and long-lasting mascara. Overall it’s not a bad product but it’s not as good and efficient as my Bioderma and Bourjois micellar water so I don’t think I’d repurchase. It's quite pricey.



Exfoliating Foam Cleanser Resurfacing Effect
I’m disappointed :-(. The consistency is nice and creamy but definitely it’s not a foam cleanser. It contains small beads (apricot seed powder) which exfoliate quite gently so it can be used daily. The problem is that when I rinse this cleanser off my skin feels very dry, tighten and... dirty! It leaves kind of a film on the skin, something waxy-like, horrible! I can't see absolutely no benefits of using it. It's the first cleansing product that broke me out. The product contains quite a lot of preservatives and is not paraben-free. I won’t buy it again.





Perfecting Toning Lotion Anti-Fatigue Effect
It’s thick, gel-like, with a wonderful scent - subtle and relaxing. Because of the consistency don't use it like a toner, don’t apply it with a cotton pad as it’s said on the packaging. It just doesn’t make sense, everything would soak into the cotton pad not your skin. Squeeze a small amount of the lotion (it doesn't come with a pomp, buy one at YR! it’s brilliant!) and pat it onto your face. It feels sooooo nice and refreshing, just like a nice feather-light moisturizing gel. You might event find you don't need to follow with a moisturizer. It doesn't break me out, which is always a good thing :-). My skin feels nourished and soft. I think I'm in love... I will definitely repurchase. 




To sum up, this new line of cleansers consist of good, average and bad products... Each of the three products I've tried is fragranced and rich in botanical-based ingredients so I wouldn't recommend them to people with sensitive or allergy prone skin. As to prices the whole range is a bit too pricey in my opinion - if you want to buy it wait for some kind of discount. Rejuvenating effect? I don't know about that... Well, many women look younger after removing makeup ;-).

  1. Też nie jest zadowolona z "pianki" i płynu. Zupełnie nieudana seria :(

    No nieudana seria, ale tonik wart uwagi. Tylko, że w sumie moim zdaniem to nie tonik, tylko żel nawilżający :)
