I have been a customer of Yves Rocher for about eight years now along with my mother. To be honest am not 100% sure of how I came across them but I think it was from a magazine advert.
Yves Rocher is a French company so the products you order are in French but have English translations underneath as well as on the back of the products of how to apply so its not a problem, we have a lot of French words that we tend to use in English anyway such as noir meaning black for eye liners and so on.
Yves Rocher is a small mail order company in the same sort of way as Avon but with no representatives and your items get sent in a box.
Their products are plant based so you know they're going to be nice and natural, this is what enticed me as I also love Lush.
Yves Rocher regularly send out mail order leaflets and they have many offers regularly such as spend a certain amount and receive a surprise gift free, 2 for 1 offers and introductory offers so you can save a lot with them, but it is easy to get draw in with their offers. They also send out offers for your birthday.
They have little peel and lick stickers with pictures on for what you want to order as well as boxes. You do have to pay a stamp for mail order, but you can also order on-line.
If you spend a certain amount delivery is free.
Some of their products are a little more than what you could maybe find else where but if your fussy like me and like natural products then I would recommend them. You do save quite a bit with their offers.
The products always arrive very quickly boxed with those packing wotsits so they don't get damaged. Along with a little mail order pamphlet of their products as well as offers from other companies.
I have tried some of their make-up I usually only get some eye-shadows as I prefer Urban Decay. I tend to buy bubble bath, and body products the most. Have just bought some Lavender moisturising oil which was 2 for 1 but have not tried yet.
I have discovered Yves Rocher when I was looking for an alternative to Oriflama of Avon a couple of years ago because I was feeling bored of things. When I first found the website I could not believe this really cool company has gone without me noticing it for so long, I mean it has a huge range of cosmetics: anti-ageing, face and body acre, fragrance, make-up, accessories and some really tasty teas I love.
I have spend a few days just looking trough their website before I placed an order.
Then is the catalogues order that started to arrive every month trough my post, I can not understand how to place on order trough the post with them. They have all this stickers and offers in it that you have to place here and there and is all just too much trouble and complicated for me. Good thing is that they will sometimes will send free samples with their catalogue. I also noticed that they seem to have other offers in the catalogue that are not on the website. I have placed once an order trough the catalogues with them and it was like rocket science trying to figure things out.
My big love are the bathing products of which I remain faithful until this day. The shower gels selection is outstanding.
I love the fact that they never dry my skin up. Then is the scent they have, it all smells very natural. Price wise they very affordable, you will always find a 2 for 1 offer on them for £4. One bottle has 200ml of product in it and is very long lasting. Some of favourites are: the honeysuckle which is a very delicate scent, then is almond, African cocoa bean, brazil coffee bean that smell like you could eat them. Thgese are part of Jardins du Monde collection which by the way I tried them all and I think they are beautifully scented.
I have also tried a few years ago Inositaol Vegetale First wrinkle day and night creams. I found them to be very light for the skin , with a good balance or moisture for the face and they have never clogged my skin up.. While using them skin gets more luminosity and softness. If I ever have to go back into buying a face cream instead of making mine these would be it. Also good to mention that they come in refill parts so you can reuse them main jar. One refill can be bought for £13.40 in a 2 for 1 offer.
I also got some free samples over time of their luxurious and expensive anti-ageing face creams as in the Beauty Elixir and the Night Cream with 30 precious oils. My skin did not liked them at all and on a quick look on the ingredients list, I spotted Vaseline which is a cheap waste of the petrol industry that my skin never likes.
At one point I placed an £150 order with them and it took 4 weeks to arrive, it came a week after the New Year, they did not gave me any notice in this time or anything like that, very annoying. But that did not stopped me ordering again as I feel in love with their products.
I'm another Yves Rocher fan, have been probably for a good twenty years now, and over the years have used quite a few of their different products. I, like many others, found out about Yves Rocher by way of those one page magazine ads where you can get so many products for so much, and they give you additional free samples too. Sounded too good to miss ... so I sent off an order. That was the first of many, and all greeted with the same joy when that box arrives. It's like getting presents from the postman.
I like the fact that they use a lot of natural plant extracts, and were (in fact) one of the original companies to do so. I LOVE their lavender oil and have used it for massage and in my bath. I've also tried most of their perfumes over the years and have loved some and not been too keen on others - but isn't that the way with all perfumes?
Their special offers provide a way for you to try a lot of the different items in the range - lotions, shampoos, conditioners, skin care products - at very inexpensive prices. That's a must for me. You don't want to blow ten quid only to find that the lotion brings you up in bumps, or that the perfume smells good in the bottle but makes the local cat population think you're a big tom who's marked his territory! Believe you me, I've had a perfume actually smell that bad with my body chemistry once - it was awful.
They have skin care ranges for all types of skin - dry, oily, combination and sensitive - and in each there are cleansers, toners and moisturizers made from pure plant extracts. So, not only are they inexpensive but made from good ingredients that actually do your skin good, too. I have very sensitive skin, and have had problems with practically every other cleanser that I've used (other than the old standby's of Nivea Cream and Pond's Cold Cream, which are too heavy by today's standards).
Overall, no matter whether you are a bathtime luxury person (like me) or looking for good day-to-day skin care, Yves Rocher does have something for everyone. Beauty comes on a pretty good budget from this company.
I first came across Yves Rocher abroad and I remember my aunt ordering from them as early as the mid 80's, but they could have possibly been around for even longer.
They are a cosmetics company that sell make up, bath and body products and fragrances. I think they started out in France and then moved on to countries like Belgium and more recently the UK.
The quality of their products are of mid-end value I'd say and they're quite reasonable in price, as they usually have loads of offers on through their mail order service.
Whilst many of their products, like body lotions, lipstick and fragrance are good to ok, I can't say the same for their shampoo, as I've got very dry and damaged hair and I find that they're never moisturising and nourishing enough for me.
Their make up is quite nice, they have a range called luminelle that have lipsticks, blushes, eye shadows and pencils with a pearl or frost like finish. Then they also have a nature make up range with more matte or glossy finishes but no glitter or extra metallic sheen to them. The make up products are comparable to L'Oreal, Bourjois and other mid-range brands and so are their prices.
My favourite product is their Amour body lotion with iridescent shimmer that's moisturising and gives my skin a nice sparkle, ideal for nights out. The scent is very sweet and smells of flowers, I just love it.
I'd say, give them a go and see what you like, they're quite reasonable and some of their products are unlike other products I've tried like the body lotion with iridescent particles and it smells awesome.
I love yves rocher. It's as simple as that- I have been buying their products for the best part of 16 years now(that makes me feel old!) and I first got interested in their stuff when I received little stocking fillers at christmas time from my mum who had occasionally bought from them. How it works is you get sent not so much a catalogue but a series of leaflets with their products on and special offers. The prices may look shockingly expensive for some items but their is always some kind of of 2 for 1 or 50% off or so many items at £1.95 for example. It's also free postage and packing if you spend over £15 and sometimes there is a credit facility that allows you to order and have 3 months to pay. I like the fact when my yves rocher envelope comes it nearly always has either a free gift or samples of their new products to try. They sell mainly body care and cosmetics but seem to branch out to gifts with their christmas catalogue which is always exciting to receive! Definately worth checking out.
I frequently order with Yves Rocher, and although I feel slightly ashamed to admit it I always open the packets with a sense of excitement at what the secret gift might be this time. With almost every order you make you get a small present. Sometimes you know what it is when you order, sometimes it's a surprise.
The products Yves Rocher offer are of different quality. I have been very dissapointed by some of the products that I have ordered, usually every-day things like soap and hand lotion. On the other hand, some of the products I use daily are Yver Rochers, products I order over and over again.
My best recomendations are their cold wax strippes and their shampoo with natural extracts that tint your hair just that little bit brownish read. I also frequently use their foot lotion with lavender scent, and their range of Colours Nature make-up contains a mascara that elongates your eye-lashes in a beautifull way (Extremicils) and a excellent concealer divided into tow parts that hides anything without getting heavy and clogged.
Yves Rocher is available through catalogue, via the internet or in their real shops. I recomend you try them a few times, but make sure you find one of their great deals where you get 50% of the original price or a 2-for-1-offer. Their deals are uppdated a few times per month, and you'll almost always find these great reductions from the orignal price!
Yves Rocher is a beauty catalogue. It sells make up, perfume, body care, hair care and so on. I suppose it is just like Avon, but so much more expensive. The reason I got a catalogue is because I had just got my own house and my mum had a catalogue. So instead of ordering from her, she recommended me, got £20 of products of her choice from the book and I could order what I want when I want. As with any new catalogue you tend to get special deals when you first join. I got a leaflet full of cheap goods, a 10 piece trial set when I ordered ( it was 10 50ml bottles of shower gels, body lotion, shampoo, face cream and so on), a gift when I joined, a make up bag if I ordered over £20 worth of products. Also I go free postage if I ordered over £18 ( it usually costs £2.95). So I went the whole hog and ordered over £20 for my free gift and free postage. I don't like most of their products that much. They are alright, but I would rather buy my normal beauty products from Boots, The body shop and Lush as that is where I usually go. Also their prices are expensive, but they are always on special. For example a 200ml bottle of shampoo is about £4, but you can usually pick it up for £1.95. I think that is their favourite price as nearly everything comes down to that price. In every book I receive, which is about once every 2 months I get a free product for ordering, a product for ordering over £20 and free postage if my order is over about £18. Also in every envelope I get about 6 stickers. These are for getting products of my choice cheaper. They are 50% cheaper, 2 for the price of 1 and only £3.95. So obviously I can get 2 products for the price of 1, 50% off a certain product and another product for £3.95. I get 2 of each sticker. Some of the products are up to £25 so I can get one of them for £3.95. That is quite good. The payment options are average - credit card, debit card and 3 months interest free credi
t. To do this you must send them a cheque dated for 3 months time, so when the time comes they cash your cheque and that's it. I would recommend this catalogue. You can get loads of good deals and it is handy for getting cheap christmas gifts. I use this now and again, but prefer to go down the high street for my things.
Just look at my profile picture. Don’t I look fabulous, darling? I’m sure you’ve been wondering how such a lovely moomin as myself keeps herself looking great . . . soft silky fur, bright eyes, soft paws, and a glowing complexion . . . ?? You haven’t?? Hmph. Well I’m going to tell you anyway. I’ve been a customer of Yves Rocher for many years, since 1993 in fact. The company was recommended to me by a friend, and as soon as I received my first order I was hooked. SALES PITCH Yves Rocher made his first product in 1956, in La Gacilly, France – a cream based on the Celandine plant. He was the first to use mail order to market beauty products – having originally promoted his products through small classified ads. Nearly 50 years on, his company continues to sell plant-based beauty care which is ‘derived scientifically from plants’. YR is against animal testing, and claim to have the ‘protection of nature and the defence of the environment’ at the centre of the company’s operations. They are developing more refillable products, and in 1999 the Yves Rocher Group was awarded the Pricewaterhouse-Enjeux Les Echos ‘Business and the Environment’ Trophy for it’s packaging reduction policy. It currently has 4 networks in 88 countries, and boasts a worldwide clientele of over 30 million customers. ~ ~ ~ The range of products has grown steadily over the years, and includes Anti-aging, Daily Facial Care, Daily Body Care, Sun Care, Hair Care, Make-up, Fragrance, Men, and Inner Well-Being**. All products are listed by category in the Green Book of Beauty which is sent to every customer. This contains photos, detailed descriptions, and prices of every product available, and is a nice guide to have for referral. Some ranges like the Hamamèlis liquid soap and the CelDefence collection of skin care are available as eco-refills whic
h are cheaper than buying the product in its original packaging again. The packaging is absolutely lovely – the products look great in the bathroom or on the dressing-table, and make beautiful gifts too. Once you’ve ‘joined’, you will be sent your Green Book of Beauty and an up-to-date price list. Thereafter every month or so an envelope will drop through your door with notices of sale ranges, free product samples, and the latest offers. Special offers such as 2 for 1 or 50% off, or buy the product of your choice for 3.95, are included in almost every mailing. These offer some considerable savings, believe me. There are lovely free gifts on offer too – I have had candles, travel-bags, a travel brolly, and a child’s blanket, among other things. You usually have to spend over £22 to qualify for the freebie, but that’s not hard! However – a word of warning – most of the free gifts are made in China/Thailand - and may not be ethically produced. The returns policy is good – basically if you try it and don’t like it, they will refund your money - and the prices are very good even if you don't use the offers (though you’d be silly not to!). P&P is free with orders over £20, and my orders usually arrive within a week of posting the form. Samples of new and existing products are often included in your order. Yves Rocher offers 3 months interest-free credit, and accept payment by cheque, Visa, Switch, Mastercard, or Delta. My favourites are listed below, although I would recommend you request the catalogue and have a browse. I promise you the products look and smell wonderful, and really seem to work – even on the sensitive skin of this moomin! Bio-Calmille Long Lasting Day Cream – 50ml tube - £7.00 Very effective at moisturising sensitive skin. Lasts ages! Exfoliating Shower Gel - 125ml tube - £6.00 With sea algae - leaves skin
soft and smooth. Henna Shampoo - 200ml bottle - £4.00 Gently highlights the auburn tones of red hair. Really works! Handcream with Sweet Almond Oil - 75 ml tube - £3.50 Easily absorbed, sweet-smelling. Very effective on sore, gardener’s paws. Mr Moomin uses both the Antarctic and TelQuel range of Men's Care, and looks and smells lovely! The products he uses regularly include Aftershave - 100ml bottle - £10.00 Hair and Body Shampoo - 200 ml bottle - £4.50 - also available are Roll-on Anti-perspirant, Eau de Toilette, and After Shave Moisturiser. Scrummy! Look out for the introductory offers in women’s magazines, TV guides, and mailshots, or contact them direct on Fax 0870 241 4407, Phone 8-7 Mon-Fri on 0870 608 7575 or mail to Yves Rocher, 664 Victoria Road, South Ruislip, Middlesex HA4 0NY ** In case you were wondering – the Inner well-being section is basically a selection of Herbal Teas. And very nice they are too!
Yves Rocher is a mail order company selling cosmetics, in a similar vein to Avon, but without the representatives. I initially purchased from Yves Rocher in answer to an advert in a magazine offering free gifts and low prices. These adverts are plentiful so they’re not difficult to find. When I received my first order I also received the Yves Rocher Green Book of Beauty for that year, which is the catalogue containing all the products available. They include skincare, bath products, perfume, sun creams, foot care, men’s toiletries and hair care. All the products are made from plant extracts and none have ever been tested on animals. Some of the prices are quite high but I find the best idea is to wait until you receive one of their special offers that turn up at regular intervals. This usually contains an offer of free gifts, which are usually quite nice, and money off stickers. These stickers are for 50% off or 2 for the price of 1 etc. and you stick them on the relevant line of your order. I find that their bath products are very good. The shower gels in particular are excellent and they stock a wide variety. The essential oil bath essence is also very good but it is a bit expensive so I always stock up when I get a special offer leaflet. I also like their eye make up remover with camomile, which is a light non greasy liquid that really cleans off all my eye make up and leaves the skin around my eyes feeling soft and fresh. If your order totals £20 or more the post and packing is free, otherwise it’s £2.50 per order. If your order totals over £22 there is a free gift of £15 worth of Yves Rocher products as well. I find that it is easy to get carried away and order more than I really should in order to get the free postage and free gift. There are also usually a few free sample sachets in with each order you receive. You can order by telephone, fax or post. Payment is by cheque or credit card
and you can also enjoy three months interest free credit by either post-dating your cheque or instructing Yves Rocher to delay your credit card payment. Yves Rocher is not a buying club so there’s never any commitment to further purchases and all the products are 100% guaranteed. Even though Yves Rocher is essentially a mail order company I know that they have one or two shops around the country. I have been in the one in York and I believe that there is one in London too.
