Yves Rocher Serum Vegetal review.

*Yves Rocher have been a well loved brand of mine for a while now. Their Sexy Pulp mascara has been a firm favourite ever since I discovered it through GlossyBox and their fragrances have been repurchases for years now. The brand recently contacted me about trying their latest skin care product, the Serum Vegetal line which has a Day and Night version. This product claims to help rebuild skin to regain plumpness, so I've been trialling it for the last few weeks so I can share with you my thoughts.
First impressions of the packaging is that it's simply done, but looks expensive and high quality. The base is made of glass which does dampen things if you travel often but to display in your bathroom - they're a winner. Upon reading the packaging, here are some of the claims it makes:
Even deep wrinkles are significantly corrected
Skin regains plumpness and appears firmer
Skin is hydrated throughout the day thanks to the product’s smoothing texture, which provides an excellent base for makeup. Plus with Plumping Night Care skin appears firmer and more toned when you wake up in the morning. Skin is intensely nourished thanks to the product’s corrective balm texture.
I've been using both as suggested, morning and night and there's definitely a difference between the two. As you'd probably imagine the Night serum has a thicker consistency and leaves your skin feeling completely nourished. It does leave a slightly oily residue on the skin, which I do find a little overwhelming for my oily/combination skin so I do have to use it sparingly. I do notice in the morning my skin looks rejuvenated and in better condition. The Day and Night serum both contain Mesembryanthemum crystallinum - they call it the Life Plant - which stimulates protein in the skin to combat wrinkles. For dual action they also add in Orzya, a botanical extract, that boosts skins radiance. There's a lot of Scientific long words behind all of it but basically, they're aiming to refresh, rehydrate and stimulate your skin. Prolonged use will ideally smooth the texture of your skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. The packaging claims that this is a product that should be used by anyone over 25, I'm 24, close enough. I'm luckily without any noticeable wrinkles so far, apart from a stubborn line on my forehead from being a sarcastic, eyebrow raising teenager, and this hasn't vanished - although after a few weeks of using both products it wasn't as noticeable and my skin looks like it's been refreshed, plumped and hydrated. All a bonus in my book. I think ideally I'd have to get my mum to give these a good go to give proper results on the wrinkle reduction front - sorry mum, but if you're after preventative skin care or want a hydrating day and night serum - these are well worth a try. Plus they're currently on offer, together for £29, they both contain 30ml. If you're picky about scents, you can rest assured that these have a light, non offensive fragrance that you barely notice.
