After intensely studying in the library these past two weeks and re-adjusting to the time difference (8hours), my skin has been really terrible! I’ve found that I have been breaking out more and my skin is extremely dry. My family and I have been using the “Pure system” for about a year and a half and we love it (so much that we have had a little influence on our aunt who is now using the line daily).
After my skin started breaking out I decided to purchase some of my holy grails to save my skin. Conveniently Yves Rocher was and still is having a huge sale! Here is what I purchased:
I Purify My Skin set: Cleanser, Toner + FREE head band (53% off) £8.90
Serum Vegetal Discovery set (7 day program) (29% off) £3.99
and I got to choose out of 10 gifts what I wanted and I chose the
Elixir 7.9 Youth reactivating Day cream (Originally £36) FREE
In total I spent about £12.89 on 2 sets and got 1 free gift and 2 mini sample sachets.
The Pure system set, came with a cleanser that contains micro beads inside that allow for a gentle exfoliation and a orangey colour. A little goes a long way with this, I use just a pea size amount and apply it to both my neck and face in circular motions. The product it self is so soothing on the skin and your skin doesn’t feel “squeaky” clean from the dryness but with the ingredient of Aloe, it is super soothing and reduces skin redness.
Key ingredients used in the “pure system”:
- Salicylic acid – which really helps in skin renewal, preventing the pores from clogging and clears your skin
- Aloe Vera – known for its reparative qualities as well as soothing and hydrating the skin
- + Soap Free!
The toner, it definitely has a unique texture to it, with a sort of gel like consistency which melts into your skin. It has a light scent of fresh aloe vera which is super soothing on your skin. My skin really soaks up the toner within a few minutes.
The Yves Rocher Elixir 7.9 Day cream is an amazing product and I feel it is a luxurous product, at £36 it isn’t a cheap product but I am so glad that I got to give it a try though their 10 gifts promotion (if you buy from their online shop you can choose between 10 products to try for free).
Key ingredients in it:
This feels so luxurious on your skin, super smooth and not sticky. It feels amazing when you apply it, soothing any skin redness or irritation. It is also immediately absorbed into your skin, my skin feels super plump after using it. The lotion is also acts as a great primer under foundation. Plus it doesn’t have a scent to it (0% perfume).
The design of the bottle is pretty great too all you have to do is to twist it to the left and pump super hygienic and not too finicky. However, be careful not to drop it because it made of glass!
The last thing I got was the Serum Vegetal 7 day Discovery set/programme. It comes with a day cream and a night cream. After falling in love with the Serum vegetal deep wrinkle expert care (Day/night) cream samples from our christmas purchases. We are eager to go buy the full size, however, I decided I wanted to try more from the range and after seeing this set on sale for £3.99 I had to give it a try, plus it is super adorable.
This is definitely different o the Elixir 7.9 lotion, the texture is definitely a lot thicker than I was expecting but it claims that in 7 days your skin will fill pronounced wrinkles, restore bounce to skin while moisturizing and protecting your skin. These are some big claims so we will have to see, currently on day 2 of this program and so far, it hasn’t been too bad, waking up is always exciting because my skin looks so plump and smooth, not sure if its from the H20 I’ve been drinking or this?
The ingredients in it are:
All in all, Yves Rocher has yet again impressed me with their products! My skin has definitely cleared up and acne has settled down and the redness has definitely disappeared. One thing I love about their products is how well my skin absorbs the product and how well it responds. Friends who have had super sensitive skin have used their products and haven’t had any allergic reactions. I can’t say enough about how much I love their products, highly recommend.
I hope you liked this post!
