*Yves Rocher Cocoa & Orange hand cream and Bio Nourishing lip balm

16. januar 2014


Hello my lovelies! Today I'll be reviewing two products (of the many) I got at the Yves Rocher event in December. First and foremost, a disclaimer - the girls from Yves Rocher did not give us all these wonderful products in exchange for reviews, these products were gifts and a way for us to get to know the brand and possibly let our readers know as well, if we wanted to. :) Now onto the products...





The first product I decided to try out was the Cocoa & Orange hand cream. I believe this range (Cacao Collection) was a limited one so I don't know, if you can still get this cream or any other products from this line. Though I wish this line was a permanent one, because I love anything that has to do with chocolate or cocoa, especially when it's paired with orange, pistachio nut and raspberry (these three scents were available in the range and all of them smell absolutely heavenly). :)

The cream really smells like cocoa and orange, the scent is very realistic and not at all fake-like or even chemically smelling (you know how sometimes beauty products want to mimic certain scents but end up smelling weird and just wrong?). It reminds me of Lindt dark chocolate with orange, that's how good it smells. :) But it doesn't just smell nice, it's also a really lovely hand cream that moisturizers your skin but does not sit on it - it sinks in very fast. I absolutely love using this cream (and smelling my hands after)... :)





The second product I decided to try out was the Bio Nourishing lip balm. It's from their new, bio collection. I have to be honest... I'm not jumping around from excitement about this product. And it's not a bad product at all, just not my cup of tea. It comes in a squeeze tube and is has a clear gel-like consistency, which I'm not really a fan of (I prefer the regular, chap stick kind of lip balms). It does a very good job at moisturizing the lips, but I don't apply it a lot, because I don't particularity like the consistency, scent or taste of it - it smells and tastes a bit weird, kind of like honey, but not really. I like that it's 'bio' and it does a great job at being a lip balm... I'll probably use it up but I wouldn't repurchase it.


I've been trying other Yves Rocher products in the past few weeks and I'm really loving them. I think the brand is really underrated, especially for the great quality and prices it has. Stay tuned for more reviews next week, if you're interested in the brand. :)

  3. Se strinjam glede kreme za roke, čeprav imam pistacija verzijo. Je pa meni zelo všeč vonj in izgled tega balzama za ustnice, se pa strinjam, da ima čuden okus :)

  5. Jaz imam tudi raje balzame za ustnice v trdnem stanju. Te aplikatorji mi niso preveč všeč.

    1. Mene sicer pri tem določenem balzamu ne moti toliko embalaža, bolj vonj/okus in pa formula - ker je bolj gelast, bi bila bol zadovoljna, če bi bil kremen (kot je npr. od Blistex ali Nivee/Labelo). :)
