Have you heard of a product that has 12 years of research and it contains 7 plants extracts with anti-aging powers? Neither had I until now. Yves Rocher created a collection of Elixir 7.9 that works wonders on my skin. The collections includes: a serum, day cream (normal to combination, dry, or sensitive), eye care roll-on, and night cream.
The serum is very popular world wide. Can you believe it has sold 1.4 milion between October 2010 to December 2012? This serum absorbs quickly on my skin and instantly my skin feels so smooth. It is light and has no odor. I can see why many has been sold because I love how my skin feels. It was recommended to apply the serum first before applying the cream. There are three types of cream available - normal to combination, dry, or sensitive. I have combination and oily skin so I have choosen the normal to combination. Sometimes I wonder who has normal skin. They must be very lucky.
Just like the serum, the cream is light and has odor. It absorbs quickly on my skin making it feel hydrated and refreshed. The night cream formula proclaims that it will help your skin to feel regenerated and replenished with youth. This cream is thicker than the day cream but I noticed how wonderful my skin feels in the morning - refreshed and smoother. I personally love the creams in a jar so I could get the very last bit and not waste any. It provides better control how much to use on my face. Just remember to close it tightly after using it because the air will reduce the cream's effectiveness. Just after one day my skin feels wonderful and after one week it feels healthier and smoother.
I wish everyone would follow Yves Rocher commitment and invented refillable creams inserts instead of re-purchasing the product with the same amount of plastic. Many brand name creams come in heavy thick plastic. When we are finished we throw away the container and re-purchase a new one. Why can't we just keep the container and add just the cream? Yves Rocher invented the containers where I could just pop the part that holds the cream and insert it with a new one.
This means 88% less plastic and saving the environment. The refills cost less, reduce plastic consumption, and super easy to use. Yves Rocher even took one step further by each refill purchased, a tree will be planted as part of the Yves Rocher Foundation's Plant for the Planet operation.
I have fallen in love with Yves Rocher Elxir 7.9 Skin Care and have been using it every day. I can feel my skin feeling much healthier after a few days of using it.
