  • So when I received two bottles of Yves Rocher Provençal Lavandin shower gel as a Christmas present I was pleased as I like the Yves Rocher brand but thought I might have preferred a more exciting fragrance
  • I think part of this is subconscious because of how weak the lather is, but generally this isn't the most effective shower gel I've ever used
  • Personally I didn't find it so and am never really sure how anyone can find a SHOWER relaxing anyway, a bath yes but definitely not an invigorating shower even if it does smell of lavender

      Before I start I must say that although lavender is a bit of a ‘love it or hate it’ fragrance for most people, I’m not too fussed either way with it. So when I received two bottles of Yves Rocher Provençal Lavandin shower gel as a Christmas present I was pleased as I like the Yves Rocher brand but thought I might have preferred a more exciting fragrance.  I have experience with their shower gels but haven’t come across this particular one before, I loved the pretty purple bottle immediately and thought the matching pair looked great in my bathroom -

      the shower gel is from Yves Rocher’s Les Jardins Du Monde range, this is a selection of products designed to remind you of a summertime garden. 

      The shower gel has a thick consistency, I actually find it a bit sticky and gloopy if I’m honest and the gel itself isn’t all that pleasurable to use until it begins to lather on my skin.  The lather produced by this shower gel is very thin and not luxurious at all; I’ve found over time that Yves Rocher shower gels are never very bubbly, but this one is awful and feels incredibly cheap and nasty while I’m washing with it - the lather is similar to what you’d expect to find in your washing up bowl if you’d bought a very cheap detergent and isn’t the kind of foam I like to shower in. 

      The lavender smells very pretty but has that ‘old ladies’ tang to it, I like a fresh lavender scent and am surprised to find that this one is extremely synthetic and not pleasant at all. There’s a slight sweetness that doesn’t seem to match up well with the actual lavender scent and this becomes quite sickly the longer you stay in the shower ...

      for, followed by a cloying floral scent afterwards that seems to follow you around forever. 

      I don’t find this particularly cleansing either, after rinsing my skin feels clean as though I’ve just had a shower but lacks that squeaky feeling that I’m used to from other Yves Rocher shower and bath products. I think part of this is subconscious because of how weak the lather is, but generally this isn’t the most effective shower gel I’ve ever used.  It’s slightly moisturising, not hugely so and on ‘dry’ days I still have to use a body moisturiser to provide my skin with the

      level of care it needs - other times however I can get away with not applying anything after my shower, which is a bonus!

      I suspect the lavender could be relaxing if you were the type of person who is soothed by this fragrance. Personally I didn’t find it so and am never really sure how anyone can find a SHOWER relaxing anyway, a bath yes but definitely not an invigorating shower even if it does smell of lavender!

      $6 will get you a 200ml bottle of Provençal Lavandin, this isn’t brilliant value considering this is one of the poorer Yves Rocher shower gels.

This is very good product I have ever use in my life.
