Yves Rocher Culture Bio with Organic Aloe Vera #Skincare

 
I must say.  I am really happy and impressed with this affordable, organic line from Yves Rocher.
Thankfully Yves Rocher was ever so patient with me in answering my questions and grilling them on the ingredients.  They sent me their ingredients, I researched them and it’s a pretty clean line.  Probably the cleanest brand from a big company that I’ve come across.  The only thing that some hardcore skin naturalists may have with the line is the fragrance ingredient.  For me, I’m not too picky as the line is pretty organic and it had a gentle soft scent to it.

* To celebrate 50 years of Yves Rocher with every Culture Bio, Radiance Shampoo, Inosotil and Hamamelis refill product purchased, one tree is planted. See more info here when you click on a Culture Bio product.

 
How is Yves Rocher so affordable for its high-quality products?
The line is made in France and was created 50 years ago by Yves Rocher.  Creating botanical skin care in his attic.  For those 50 years, Yves Rocher has harvested their organically grown plants.  When I spoke with the team from Yves Rocher I asked how can something organic be so affordable? 
Well it’s easy.  They are a family held business and have control over all the steps from harvesting to creating formula to producing and distributing their products.  They don’t do celebrity endorsements therefore not spending big bucks on advertising.  Democratizing beauty and making it available to all women has been Mr. Rocher’s mission from the start of his company in 1959.  Learn more about the line here

Everything Mom and Baby’s experience with the line:
My skin has been so dry. With pregnancy and the twins sucking everything out of me I have truly yet to find a facial moisturizer do the job.  I was pleasantly surprised with the Velvety Facial Moisturizer with Aloe Vera. The scent is light and it balanced, hydrated and soothed my skin.
It’s made with 99% organic ingredients, free of parabens and mineral oils and only $16.  It has regulated my skin and has given me the hydration my skin has been craving.  Star of approval worthy for sure!
 
Next up is their Refreshing Gel Cleanser with Organic Aloe Vera, $10.  This is a super lightweight gel cleaner where a little goes a long way.  It wasn’t drying at all which I find common in most gel cleaners but I think that attributes to the fact that it has a light/thin density to it.  It’s very gentle and I’ve used it to remove my eye makeup as well with no stinging going on!  It’s light and fresh and a great simple cleanser for the face and eyes.

Moisturizing Body Lotion with Organic Aloe Vera, $10 is made with 98% Organic ingredients and light, hydrating and effective.  I like to smooth it on after shaving because it’s so light and not heavy and it dries quickly.  I use it for my hands when I give myself a manicure and have been very happy with this lightweight body lotion. I like the Sesame and Almond Oil in this cream. Give it a try!

YvesRocher_ShowerGel

Fresh Shower Gel with Organic Aloe Vera, $3  Where are you going to find a made in France, organic shower gel for only 4 bucks? Like the Facial Cleanser, it has a similar consistency. It gives a little foam and cleans your skin ever so gently.  

Tip:  Use a loofah to clean and remove dead skin cells so your skin is nicely exfoliated and your moisturizer will penetrate and be more effective in hydration.

YvesRocher_Deodorant

Stay Fresh Deodorant with Organic Aloe Vera, $4.95.  Well, I’ll say…..it’s not bad.  I prefer it over most natural deodorants like Dr.Mist.  I find it worked great for half the day but you would need to re-apply it depending on your body type and how those sudoriferous glands of yours work!  It is a great price, it’s a roll on but I think I’d have better success if it was a stick.  It’s aluminum free, free of propylene glycol used in other commercial brand deodorants so that’s a good thing. 10% of the ingredients are organic as well and 98.7% of it is of natural origin pertaining to its ingredients.

Overall I give the line 9/10.   The facial moisturizer I am most pleased with, the ingredients and made in France quality.  Yves Rocher is an affordable line that everyone is sure to find something perfect for their lifestyle. For me, it’s organic skin care!

    I would love to try the deodorant that you have posted in the blog. I’m trying to switch over to natural products, but it can be hard cause everything is usually more expensive. It seems like their products are reasonably priced though! 🙂
