This year, I’m educating myself more when it comes to skin care. Lucky for me, a lot of global brands are available here in Manila, one of which I was able to try was Yves Rocher.
Yves Rocher (pronounced as Eve Ro-shay) is a brand from France and is the creator of botanical beauty since 1959. The main ingredients of the products are from organic botanical plants found in Yves Rocher’s hometown.
The store definitely exudes a botanical vibe. It gives off a sweet-smelling scent that enticed me to look around and further see what’s inside.
I was really tempted to get these sweet selections, all at Php 395 and below. But what really caught my eye was the Sebo Vegetal line of Yves Rocher. Not only were they strategically placed on the window displays, they were
Baikal powder is a powerful source of purity that allows combination to oily skin to once again be even and perfectly matte. Freed from excess sebum, the skin breathes once again. Durably purified, it stays undeniably beautiful and fresh all day long.
Aside from Sebo Vegetal, Yves Rocher also has Hydra Vegetal, Active Sensitive & Pure Vegetal lines.
The word SEBO reminds me of oil as it is oil right? Then I learned that Sebo Vegetal works best for combination to oily skin. I self-diagnosed myself having a combination skin for there would be times my skin’s oily & other times my skin’s flaky dry. I figured it would be okay for me to try Yves Rocher Sebo Vegetal skin care line. So I went ahead and tried it.
Sebo Vegetal Zero Blemish Gel Cream at Php 795.
Sebo Vegetal Purifying Micellar Water 2-in-1, Pore Minimizing Serum, Zero Blemish Gel Cream and Purifying Cleansing Gel.
Here’s my set of Yves Rocher Sebo Vegetal that I’ve used on-off for weeks now. Initial thoughts: I am partial to anything green. I think and I assume that most products wrapped in green packaging have more natural ingredients and are perfect for sensitive skin. This may or may not be accurately true but that’s how I see it.
The Sebo Vegetal line gives a refreshing sweet, grassy scent. The Purifying Gel Cleanser is cool & a little goes a long way. It does its job to cleanse without feeling stripped off of moisture. While the Purifying Micellar Water 2-in-1 acts like a toner and even as a make up remover. I tried it for both purpose and I must say, it works better as the former rather than the latter.It does leave my skin a little bit sticky so its not something I was fond of using in the mornings.
Pore Minimizing Serum and Zero Blemish Gel Cream.
Pore Minimizing Serum is thin in consistency. A tad bit like milk but feels slightly silky once lathered on and it doesn’t feel heavy. I couldn’t tell much when it comes to its pore minimizing effect as I didn’t see any difference over the course of three weeks using it.
Zero Blemish Gel Cream feels like a cream more than a gel. It’s light on my face & leaves a hint of softness. So much so that I like slithering my fingers across my face. This has been the Sebo Vegetal product that I like most as I had seen how my blemishes (mostly pimple marks) have lightened over time.
Yves Rocher Sebo Vegetal is perfect for those who have oily skin more than combination skin. If you’re looking for a skin care line, go ahead and get the 7-day program so you can try if Sebo Vegetal would work for you.
I must get Hydra Vegetal & try it next as my skin’s reacting badly to the bipolar weather we’re having. Once I do, will share how my experience with Yves Rocher Hydrate Vegetal goes.
