Yves Rocher and Botanical Spa Experience!

Last Saturday was a much anticipated day. A couple of weeks ago the brand Yves Rocher contacted me for a meeting with regards to the brand. It all started with a nice cup of Vanilla tea, which happens to be my favourite kind of tea ever. Prior to the meeting I was offered a free Botanical Facial which I believe was around 1 hour 15 minutes long. But to be perfectly honest with you I could have stayed there for hours!

So, lets start with a brief introduction about the brand itself. Yves Rocher founded the brand that bears his name back in 1959. The products are formulated from botanicas, which are naturally similar to skin. Researchers study the  diversity and wealth of botanical life to reveal their unique benefits such as skin stimulation, repair and protection. One of their philosophies is their management towards the enhancement and reservation of all the botanical life around the world. For example like in Mali or Burkina Faso where the cultivation of fair trade Shea crops is combined with sustainable production, training and guaranteed minimum wage, thus promoting long-lasting economic development of the local population.

The brand itself caters for every age and skin type with products ranging from shower gels to perfumes and to very specific anti aging creams. A vast range of hair care products are also included. Makeup can also be found in the range with products which are infused with botanicals which is actually good for the skin.

       There are lots of things to discuss about this brand which in all fairness is quite new to me, although it is not the first time that I heard of it. One thing which I think is pretty awesome is that for every product which is bought from  certain ranges, Yves Rocher has pledged to plant a tree! How great is that?

Every facial is tailored for each specific skin type. Mine is quite oily and hence it involved a deep cleaning process to remove all the impurities and a mask to help regenerate the skin. The beauty therapists hands were very soft and gentle with the movements which I felt helped to remove the tension in my skin. The whole experience (which in all fairness was heavenly!) ended with a light makeup application which included foundation, powder and a couple layers of mascara and quite a natural touch of colour to the lips.
