      You can get better products for less

      As a teenager I would regularly order products from the Yves Rocher catalogue, so when I went to Paris and stumbled across the Yves Rocher shop I ended up buying myself lots of products 'for old times sake'. One which I bought was the Raspberry shower gel from the Les Plaisirs Nature collection. This product was actually one I had used as a teenager, but even now I am drawn to raspberry fragranced products and was excited to try this again. As I was travelling I didn't want to lug lots of big bottles home with me, so bought this in the travel size.

      ==Packaging==

      The product comes in a clear bottle and has a label on the front depicting raspberries as I guess you would expect. What really makes the product stand out is not so much the bottle as the colour of the product inside. The gel is a rich pinky-purple colour and it looks really girly and inviting - I couldn't wait to use it!

      ==My Experience==

      The first time I used this - well the first time since the last time, if you know what I mean, I got a bit of a shock as the consistency wasn't what I was expecting. This gel is really quite runny and I ended up using quite a bit more than I actually intended to.

      The smell of the gel is evident as soon as it is poured out of the bottle. Unfortunately, the smell wasn't quite as nice as I had remembered it being. OK, so it was still nice and there was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't 'wow' if you know what I mean. The scent is, of course, predominantly raspberry, but it wasn't as sweet as I would perhaps have liked. It actually has a very sharp 'kick' to it, which is a bit like lemon or lime and it slightly ruins the fragrance for me.

      In terms of using as a shower gel, I find this good, although I would like it to be thicker. It creates a light foamy lather on my skin and the smell really comes out strongly whilst in use.

      After using this, whilst I do find that it gets my skin clean, I don't notice any other huge benefits. It doesn't seem particularly softened at all and the scent doesn't linger.

      ==Price and Availability==

      In the UK this is only available online at www.yves-rocher.co.uk or via mail order. A 500ml bottle costs £5 or the 50ml bottle I have £1.75. A matching soap and eau de toilette are also available. I'm not sure about this in eau de toilette form, but I actually imagine the scent would work quite well as a soap.

      ==Conclusion==

      To sum up, I'd have to say I was quite disappointed with this. This product is certainly not as nice as I remembered it to be - I felt the scent was a little too sharp and the actual gel runny and not of great quality. For these reasons, I'm sad to say I would not recommend it.
