Yves Rocher Pear Caramel collection

Have you seen the new Yves Rocher collection, Pear Caramel? The brand is coming out with 4 bath & body collections for the 2014 holiday season, but since Pear Caramel has already arrived in stores and it's a limited edition I decided to review the products now and will publish another review in about 2 weeks!

Pear Caramel is a mouth-watering fruity and yummy scent! The fresh and juicy pear is followed by a sweet and creamy caramel note.

This range includes a shower cream, a body lotion, a candle, an eau de toilette and a bath cube. The shower cream and the eau de toilette are available in 2 sizes, but please note that the larger bottles are only for sale in stores. Sadly I couldn't try the Pear Caramel Fizzy Bath Cube ($2 CAD for 15g) because I only take showers these days! All I can say is that it smells really good like everything else in this collection.

Pear Caramel Shower Cream ($9 CAD for 400ml or $12 CAD for 750ml)
I love love love this shower cream! The lather is thick and rich, but it doesn't dry out or irritate my skin. The scent doesn't last on my skin but to be honest I never used a shower gel that leaves a strong scent on my skin for more than 20 minutes. The only thing I would change is the packaging, a pump would be nice or at least a smaller opening because it's easy to pour too much.

Pear Caramel Body Lotion ($12 CAD for 400ml)
I prefer body lotions instead of butters or creams because they aren't as heavy and usually sink into the skin much faster. However, I think this one contain a lot of glycerin because it feels very moist on the skin and is a tad too sticky for my liking. So I was a bit disappointed by this lotion because I'm very picky about which products I apply on my body. I just can't stand a greasy or sticky moisturizer! It does sink into the skin after 30-45 minutes but because I'm so finicky, I need something that absorbs much faster than that. 

Pear Caramel Candle ($9 CAD for 70g)
If you want your house to smell like a bakery, you need this candle! It smells soooo good, the caramel note is much stronger in this candle compared to the other products from the same range. It's such a yummy scent and it pack quite a punch!

Pear Caramel Eau de Toilette ($14 CAD for 100ml or $7 CAD for 20ml)
If I could only keep one product from this collection, it would be this one because the scent last all day! It's not a super strong scent, you can still smell it on the skin at the end of the day but you won't leave a strong silage everywhere you go.

(I received these products in order to evaluate them and give my opinion, but rest assured that my comments are always honest and impartial.)
