Yves Rocher Holiday 2014 Collections (Redberries, Blackberries, Cocoa & Orange)

Two weeks ago I wrote a review for the new Yves Rocher Pear Caramel collection, but did you know that there is 3 more limited edition Holiday collections? If you love fruity and sweet scents, these are for you!

Oh how I love Blackberries, I wish there was an eau de toilette with this collection! To me, Blackberries doesn't smell like Yves Rocher's Wild Blackberry range. Blackberries smells more yummy, it has a touch of creamy vanilla. (I love both though)

Blackberries Hand Cream ($4 CAD for 75ml)
I love that it doesn't take forever to sink into the skin, yet it's not too light either. It's not the most moisturizing hand cream on the market, but it's a good product to use daily if you don't like greasy hand creams. Even the boyfriend loved it!

Blackberries Silky Body Cream ($9 CAD for 150ml)
This body cream smells a-ma-zing and the thick and creamy texture is lovely. It's very moisturizing so it can feel a tad greasy, but not too much either. My skin is silky soft when I use this and the scent last all day (more than 12 hours) which is very surprising for a body cream. However, sometimes my skin can be sensitive to fragrance and I think this body cream is a tad too perfumey for me because my skin is a bit itchy during a few minutes.

Blackberries Exfoliating Shower Gel ($9 CAD for 200ml)
I already wrote a review about the exfoliating shower gels, so please click here to read my thoughts about this product!

Blackberries Sparkling Body Powder ($14 CAD for 10g)
This body powder is fun to use and the puff is super soft and cute. It looks like a pale violet powder in the container, but it doesn't add a tint on skin. It's very shimmery though! If you like to add a touch of shimmer on your body for a special event and want to smell irresistible, you'll love this powder. I would have prefered a powder without any sparkles in it though, but that's just me.

Blackberries Scented Candle ($9 CAD for 100g)
Who knew Yves Rocher's candles were THAT good? I love the Blackberries candle, my whole house smells like tart blackberries with a touch of vanilla. I will buy more of these candles (Pear Caramel is so good too) if they are on sale after Christmas.

I don't like orange flavored chocolate so it's no surprise that I'm not a huge fan of the Cocoa & Orange range. But hey, if you like it who am I to judge? It does smell exactly like Terry's Chocolate Orange.

Cocoa & Orange Liquid Hand Soap ($5 CAD for 200ml) 
This hand soap has a nice thick and rich lather, but doesn't dry out my skin. It seems to leave a moisturizing film on the hands which is always nice for an hand soap. But I'm still not loving the scent.

Cocoa & Orange Hand Cream ($4 CAD for 75ml)
Ok so I'm already not a fan of the scent, you know that now. But the hand cream also do something really weird on me, after a few minutes it smells like cocoa, orange and... play doh. I'll stick to the Redberries and Blackberries hand creams, thank you. lol

If you read my blog on a regular basis, you may have noticed that I love anything that smells like raspberries, so Redberries is right up my alley! It smells so good, like fresh and tart raspberries!

Redberries Shower Gel ($4 CAD for 200ml)
Am I the only one who always have a bit of difficulty with the packaging, sometimes I almost cut myself while trying to open it! I noticed the same thing with the limited edition shower gel that came out in the summer collection, but I thought it was just this one. Enough rambling, it doesn't really matter anyway, does it? The shower gel itself is great ; it lathers well, smells good and it won't break your bank. But I have to admit that now that I tried Yves Rocher's Pear Caramel Shower Cream, I kind of have a soft spot for their Shower Creams, my dry skin seems to prefer this creamy formula!

Redberries Hand Cream ($4 CAD for 75ml)
This hand cream smells so good and the scent doesn't morph after a few minutes, unlike the Cocoa & Orange hand cream. The texture and moisturizing properties are the same than for the Redberries and the Cocoa & Orange hand creams. Love it!

  1. Oh my god, the colours in this collection. *.* These look amazing together!

    I'll be keeping an eye out for those candles ;)

  2. Oh yay! I enjoy Yves Rocher's holiday collections, so I'm excited that there is a blackberry this year. I also don't like the coco orange scent, but someone in my family keeps buying it for me. :/

    1. Oh lol, she or he must think that you really loved it the first time you got it! :P
