Yves Rocher, the well known French cosmetic brand, have brought out a new range of skincare products which I have been trying for the past month. The two products from the Serum Vegetal range I used were the Wrinkles & Radiance Smoothing Day & Night Serums*.
In these serums is a magic ingredient called something rather fancy (mesembryanthemum crystalline to be exact) but we’ll go with the more simple name of life plant. The life plant stimulates the skin’s proteins which then helps to fight wrinkles. To be honest I am 25 and I don’t have very many wrinkles so I can’t say whether it actually works from that point of view.
In the morning I apply the yoghurt-like textured day serum to my face. It smells like creamy apricots and makes the skin feel extremely soft. I then apply my regular eye cream and moisturiser – although you don’t have to apply a moisturiser with this product, I just like to be extra cautious. Our skin is so important we have to look after it! At night time I follow the same routine but apply the night serum. The night serum is a lot thicker so you know its going to be working its magic whilst you sleep – they don’t call it ‘beauty sleep’ for nothing!
All in all I can truly say these serums have made my skin feel a lot smoother, so a thumbs up from me. Many serums seem to be very oil based but these are more of a cream which I really enjoy because it takes away the greasy feeling and just makes your skin feel extra hydrated.
