Yves Rocher Blackberry Silky Lotion Review

Regular readers may know that I am the biggest fan of blackberry scented beauty products. I adore Blackberry (Mure Sauvage) range from Yves Rocher ever since one of my friends got me the spray about 8 years ago. I  also love Jo Malone’s Blackberry and Bay cologne, it is truly one of my favourites.

This is why I’ve decided to get myself a blackberry scented body lotion from Yves Rocher last week.

Yves Rocher Silky Lotion with Blackberry review

Body creams, lotions, butters  and oils are my thing, I have tonnes of them in my bathroom. But this is the one I have been using everyday ever since I’ve bought it. And let me tell you why.

It has a light texture which is exactly what you want during the summer heat. It melts into the skin, leaving it feeling moisturized (it contains sweet almond oil and shea butter) and

Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil Review

Oils are a necessity for me, beauty-wise, especially in AW period. My skin is very dry, and during the cold months it is  flaky and sore. And I do love my daily hot shower which dries out  the skin even more. But I just can’t help it. The relaxing and anti-stress effect [of a hot shower] is  very important for me.

Yves Rocher Oriantal Shower Oil Review

This is why I’ve decided to get some shower oils. I have started with Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil .

And it is really lovely indeed. It has a subtle oriental scent, as the name suggests. The way it looks and smells – it reminds me of honey. My favourite way of using it is to apply to the skin directly. It turns into milk when contacted with water, and leaves the skin smelling divine, and feeling softer and more moisturized than after a regular gel. I still

Yves Rocher Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gels Review

Some time ago my lovely friend picked up two mini Yves Rocher shower gels for me as a present, how sweet of her!

She actually told me that it took her forever to choose which scents to get and I don’t blame her, as they offer a lot of nice ones.

So she did get raspberry and vanilla and I am loving both.

They both smell very nice and that’s one of the most important things, for me, when it comes to a shower gel. Although I do like raspberry one better as it smells so juicy and refreshing,  I like vanilla, as well.  It is

Extra Hair Care: Vinegar and Scalp Massager

Back in the days my hair care routine was washing my hair with a high street shampoo. That was it. Literally. I did not even own a hair brush. Yes, I am not exaggerating.  But we are talking like 15 years ago. My brother was always very unimpressed, and was telling me to change things for years, and gradually I’ve started investing time, effort and money, ahem, in my routine. And it really pays off. I even took vitamins!I do get compliments for my hair these days but, most importantly, I am pleased with the way it looks myself.

As you would imagine, now my routine is quite extensive. And while there are still a few products that I want (like this Aquis (Amazon/ Amazon UK) hair turban which is supposed to be amazing!), I am pretty pleased with everything I am using, and should probably write about it at some point.

But  today I want to tell you about two things that I’ve added to my routine recently. They are both very extra but I really like them.

I’ve been reading about how good vinegar is for your hair for ages but quite frankly I did not

New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted a “New Purchases” feature in ages because I haven’t really been buying beauty products lately, but here is  finally a round-up of my newest picks (which I have already posted at my Instagram).

Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser for dry or sensitive skin

I have posted about Clarins cleansers and toners, and about to publish the second part. This is actually the only Clarins cleanser  (suitable for my skin type) that I haven’t tried yet, so it was about time. So far, I enjoy using it so expect a feature.
