Natural Beauty & Makeup Products: A Yves Rocher Purchase Review
So, here we are for another Yves Rocher review.
I made a recent online purchase of a few Yves Rocher makeup and beauty products; Evidence Intense Perfume, Sexy Pulp Mascara, Lipstick and a trial-size Serum Vegetal Wrinkles & Lifting Cream. This purchase qualified for two Free Gifts (yayy!!). I was totally hyped to get my free pink laptop case!! Isn’t it cute??
The second was a mystery gift worth $40! It turned out to be a product I can really use…
A tube of White Botanical Eye Contour Brightening Complex Cream! You apply it to the contour of your eyes, including underneath and after a month’s use it is supposed to lighten dark circles and even minimize any winkles, such as crow’s feet (I actually really needed this!!).
So, I have been using the eye cream so far for a few weeks and there appears to be a slight visible difference but will have to continue using to share any real results!
I made a decision to make my Yves Rocher purchase online this time rather than the shop around the corner here in French St. Martin, simply because of two reasons…
- Lower prices online and an additional discount with an YR coupon code and
- I really wanted the FREE laptop bag (a $20 value!), which I knew was not available here!!
I even searched the France YR website and found no such promotions as compared to the U.S. site and also much higher prices! (Thought I’d give you that heads up!!)
Out of these purchases, I will only review the perfume and the mascara today. I will need more time for the wrinkle creams to be able to properly evaluate them.
So, here goes! First item up for review is the…
Sexy Pulp Volumizing Mascara
Now, this mascara got some seriously volumizingly hyped reviews on the YR website!! I must say that is what prompted me to try it this time, plus it was on sale of course! (Hehehe!)
I really needed a mascara because my last one…the YR Volume Elixir (in the gold tube) was getting very scarce. Now, don’t get me wrong… I absolutely loved this mascara from my last YR review and had no complaints whatsoever, but just decided I’d try a different one from YR this time.
I really like this one (Sexy Pulp); however, I believe that I will end up going back to the first one (Volume Elixir). Pros and Cons coming up….
This mascara has a thick contoured brush that makes the mascara easily glide onto your lashes effortlessly. I chose the black, but there are other colors…blue and brown. (The blue got rave online reviews as well!)
This mascara stays on throughout the day and does not smear. As with all YR products, it is made with natural botanical ingredients:
All in all this is a very nice mascara!
Now, you are probably wondering why I stated that I would probably go back to the Volume Elixir, right??
Well, there is only one particular reason and this is it…
I find that this Sexy Pulp Mascara does not thicken lashes enough to my liking! The Volume Elixir really wowed my lashes, in my opinion. With this one, there is just something missing and I believe this is what it is…
My lashes just do not pop with this one as they do with the VE one!! You feel me??
Some of you may had rather have a less thick eyelash…well, if that’s you, then you will love this SP Mascara!! But, if you are like me and you want YOUR LASHES TO POP and really show off your EYES…Then I’d recommend going with the VE, it’s truly amazing to me!!
With that being said, I don’t have any other major Con really, except that when you pull the brush from the tube, there always seems to be an extra clump of mascara at the tip of the brush, which I always have to swipe back into the tube…I don’t know about ya’ll, but for me, that’s a tad bit annoying!
Up Next for Review, We have…
Evidence Intense Perfume
This is a new, stronger (more intense) version of YR’s regular Evidence Perfume…which I have been using exclusively for months now…which I may add have absolutely loved the scent and have gotten many compliments!!
This Intense one is No exception!! I love that it has the same scent, yet is definitely MORE intense! Now mind you, the Evidence that I have been wearing for a while now really got my hubby’s attention (and he’s a man that don’t normally fancy perfume scents, asthma purposes!) But, he really likes the regular Evidence scent on me!!
When I first sprayed this new Intense one…it did bother hubby’s nose a bit at first and he said it was a bit too strong, but has since not complained! So, as you can see, it does have a heavier, more intense scent than the regular. But, hey I love it!!
There is only one Con and I have found it to be true of all YR fragrances that I have tried thus far: It does not seem to last throughout the day; you will need to reapply a few times! Now, it is my belief that the fact it is made with natural botanicals may be an effective reason for this; however, I’m honestly not qualified to claim that for certain.
Either way, I love all of the fragrances from Yves Rocher that I have tried so far and will continue to buy this particular one until I find a new favorite.
