Several days ago I received a couple of beauty parcels, one being from my mother. It's great when something comes to you at the absolute right time. About 10+ or so years ago my sister introduced me to Yves Rocher, a French cosmetics company.
They sell worldwide and have an array of [affordable] diverse products. I've only been to one of their actual standing stores when my sister lived in Austria, which was nice because it was great to see loved products up-close and personal instead of merely on a computer screen.
For some reason I had forgotten about this company, probably because there's loads of on-line sites that I frequent now, but it wasn't long until I was warmly reunited thanks to the beauty parcels sent to me.
Outfit sneak peak: Sunny beige tinted worn alone w/ Kohl liner. Pardon the indoor mobile upload ... time crunch you know!
When it comes to make-up, for me it's always a bit difficult to find an excellent colour pigment match, however over the years I have found a few great brands that I do love. But, just like the changing of the seasons, my skin changes as well, therefore it's typically between a couple different shades and depending on the location/climate my skin just changes anyway!
So, I was extremely elated to see this sheer foundation/tinted moisturiser in the package. I don't typically wear foundation, I usually stick to light powders or bronzers - the very quick and easy solution. But, this doesn't feel like you're wearing anything at all, and goes on smoothly.
There was also kohl liner in the beauty goodies bag, which I love! But, enough about that here's a few other treats that was included.
This is in sunny beige, basically perfect for me!I have already made good use of the creamy kohl liner, which she says was a free-gift.
Restorative lip care: Lip balm glide with shea butter (above) It smells good, and works wonderfully!
Smooths on like dust!
This sparkle powder creates an illuminating effect, can be subtle or dramatic, depending on your preference: Made with virgin almond oil. It's growing on me, however at the moment I am a little too impatient to get it's full benefit, but I was able to use it once. Perhaps I'll use more for a night on the town!
Of course, it's a bit different for me because I've been a long time Yves Rocher customer. In case you've never heard of Yves Rocher, I'd recommend grabbing their catalogue, or browse briefly on-line to see what products they have.
You may also check your location, because they might also have a standing beauty store near you! I love trying new items, especially when it comes to beauty.
An added surprise was from another company that I loved! It was the Hydra Mar Paraben-Free Face Scrub by Dead Sea. Skin rejuvenation: thumbs up! I found that you may buy it here!
Do you love any new beauty companies or stores that you've tried recently, or even items that you've been graciously gifted?
I am living life, and working on an important project for work, so I've been a bit absent ... will catch up on your blogs soon. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
