Yves Rocher Monoi and Retropical

I have heard about a company called Yves Rocher even before I got here to the US. I heard it from my aunt on my mother side. Like my mother, my aunt also likes beauty products. Actually, she let me used her Yves Rocher facial scrub. I could remember anymore which one was it because it had been so many years ago. It was when before I got married and used to live with her.

This Retropical Eyeshadow Trio is definitely a very handy eyeshadow kit to have in your purse. It can be applied alone or together. The ultra pigmented green is to intensity your eyes while the flashy shade Bermuda blue subtly pearly for a deep lagoon blue look. The Peach Melba color is for an ultra pearly nude shade to light up your eyes. Its botanical ingredient is Bamboo power. A great eyeshadow combination for the summer season.

Retropical Eau de Toilette radiates both a solar and sensual freshness. It has a fruity, floral and woody smell all combined in one. I like it and the kind of fragrance I would like to wear during bedtime. It is all because of its surprising fusion of floral and fruity smell mixed with the scent of nature that can definitely carry me to a paradise :-).

These two combined Kohl Duo pencil makes a nice set to outline your eyes. You can wear them with just one color or whatever your want to wear them. The color are sea green and deep blue. If you are in a trendy fashion for the summer looks, these colors are definitely the way to go.

I got two different kinds of Retropical Gloss: Hibiscus Rouge and Peche Melba and really liked them both. They both smell like a candy. They can definitely give you great tasty lips which is perfect for summer. The Hibiscus Rouge gives you delicious shades for real femininity while the Peche Melba subtle pearly gel for naturally beautiful lips. My favorite of two is the Peche Melba since I am naturally tan and the color compliments my skin.

This Dry Body Oil just became my favorite of all because not only can I use it on my body, I can also use it on my hair. It is a multi-purpose product. My hubby also likes it. He says that it is light oil and I have been using it on him for a full rub down massage. It leaves skin soft and supple. I use this on my hair as well and my hair gets soft and shiny. It also has a soothing smell like a lilac. It is paraben and mineral oil free.

The Lagoon Hair & Body Wash is a 2 in 1 formula. It leaves an exotic perfume on both your skin and hair. It is scented with Tiare Flowers crushed in Coconut Oil that rinses away perspiration, sea salt and sunscreen. Another Yves Rocher product that I really like. It leaves my body scented from head to two. Personally, I find a 2 in 1 formula a great buy.

This Sunkissed Glow Retropical-Cheek Stain gives you natural and luminous complexion combine with cool and exotic fragrance. Summer is the best time to show off your beautiful complexion. This product does not contain any self tanning ingredients but gives your skin a natural tan no matter what its shade is. I don't have the use for this product because fortunately, I was born tan naturally. Since I don't have the need for it, I will be giving this to my sister in-law.

I am under no obligation to give either a positive or negative review and the opinions are strictly those of myself and my husband. You may noticed that the majority of reviews are quite positive. In our opinion that is because those manufacturers with the best products are much more likely to give out free samples in order to promote their products.
