Although Yves Rocher is not a brand I would normally be very enthusiastic about, I must admit that sometimes, they have rather nice surprises when it comes to the products they offer. Like some other products (from other brands) I wrote about earlier, the excellent price/quality is remarquable. All this, plus the fact that the product is very nice to use and does what it promises, you have a real winner, as far as I’m concerned.

Ingredient-wise, it’s excellent, with a hight content of Karité (Shea) Butter, a nourishing, natural plant oil/butter from the Karité tree.  Other beneficial ingredients are Coconut oil, Glycerin and Soy oil, all helping nourish/hydrate dry skins. One word of remark, however: although the product is rich and nourishing, I’m not totally convinced i twill be rich enough fort he dryest skin types amongst you. It has the advantage of penetrating almost immediately, which means you can get dressed in a minute or so. This also means, that it doesn’t leave any “film” on the skin, which in some cases (extremely dry skins) can be an advantage.

Strong points: texture, quality ingredients, price. No mineral oil, which I think is always a plus !

Weak points: maybe not rich enough fort he dryest skin types.

Lait Réparateur can be obtained through Yves Rocher boutiques or through their webshop.
