Today we’re opening the newest episode of stuff-I-finished-up with the glorious Christmas trio from Yves Rocher.


Yves Rocher Pomme Delight/ Apple Delice Shower Gel is an item from my Christmas wishlist. The fragrance (vanilla/caramel/apple crumble) of this line is just out of this world – it’s very sweet yet fresh, and makes me think of those glossy red caramel apples from the winter market at les Champs-Élysées. The bottle is huge (13.5 fl.oz. / 400 ml) and I’ve used it up with the greatest pleasure.

Yves Rocher Spicy Vanilla/ Vanille Epicée Shower Gel. This year Yver Rocher came up with three limited edition winter scents (which were pretty similar) and I had and loved all of them. This shower gel was another fantastic winter product. Lots of foam, mild formula, spicy warm scent. Perfect.

Yves Rocher Candied Orange & Cinnamon/ Orange confite & Cannelle Hand Cream – light and aromatic hand lotion. Perfect for the daytime if you are not suffering from super dry skin.


The famous Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Face Mask (Masque if you will) used to be one of my holy grails, but lost its magic by the middle of the tube. Not going to repurchase, sorry bloggers.

Minus 417 Catharsis Vitamin Mineral Conditioner.
First things first. – 417 is a brand founded by Israeli artist Moty Fridman. All the products are full of natural active components and minerals from the miraculous Dead Sea.
Trying new brands is always fun, so I was really curious about this little tube (I had a travel size one). It got the job done and left my hair (short, normal, not damaged) smooth and soft. No miracles. Pleasant strong smell. Made me want to try other products of the brands.

SUNDÃRI («beautiful woman» in Sanskrit) Body Lotion.
Here we’re dealing with an American spa brand with Ayurvedic origins founded by the 90s supermodel diva Christy Turlington. Oh. To the product: I really loved it. The lotion is pretty thick but it sinks in right away. The fragrance is natural and subtle. The mission of softness and nourish..ness is complete.

La Sultane de Saba Ginger Green Tea Body Lotion.
Last stop of our eastern spa voyage: La Sultane de Saba, French brand inspired by ancient and precious beauty rituals of oriental women. This lotion is very light and fresh which makes it perfect for the morning rush. Nice little natural thing.


And finally, my secret love for the oldschool Russian drugstore brand from Saint Petersburg Nevskaya Kosmetika (Невская Косметика). I am officially 100% obsessed with their hand and foot creams.

Lemon-Glycerin Hand Cream is a savior. My hands are always dry and get irritated so easily. This cream gets them back to normal overnight. The formula is light and not greasy (how they do it?!). The smell of lemon can be a bit annoying (I don’t like lemons) but whatever! Best part: the brand’s stuff is seriously cheap. Worst part: can be purchased only in Russia and post-Soviet countries.

Plantains Foot Cream is another great cheap product that works. Basic moisturizing and nourishing foot cream with a light pleasant smell.

That’s it guys. What have you used up/been loving recently?
