Deals Too Good to Pass Up

If you have to buy it, get the best deal!

Yves Rocher Subscriber Pricing

Yves Rocher automatically loads gifts in your cart, so they combine with any promotional code. Gifts compound, so the more you spend, the more gifts you qualify for. When I ordered, there was a gift with a $10 purchase, and a gift with a $20 purchase. There were also gifts with higher buy-ins, but I did not qualify with this order. The minimum for a gift applies before the promo code. I received the promo code 05RY20 for $5 off a $20 purchase and free shipping. Getting two free gifts, free shipping, and no sales tax (no store in my state) for as little as $15 is a steal.

The only thing I dislike about the ordering process is tracking it. Yves Rocher sends an order confirmation the moment you press order. It takes a 2-3 days before it ships. If you want to check status online before it ships, you cannot. Once it ships, you can check status after entering your customer number and phone number inside the order history form. You’re already signed in, so the extra step seems unnecessary. It is not a deal breaker, but it is not convenient.

It is also important to be signed into your account before purchasing. Subscribers get lower prices for the same products. The only thing better than seeing the number of freebies outnumbering the items you paid for is knowing the freebies have a higher value than the items you paid for. Both scenarios are present in this order.

The gift with a $10 purchase was one of the nicest I’ve seen in a while: a 5oz Gommage Scrub ($19) and a 10.1oz Nourishing Body Lotion ($17). With Christmas coming, I really like that the gift with $20 purchase was four gift bags. Although the idea of gifting something from a different manufacturer in a Yves Rocher bag is odd, I will use them. They’re a lot nicer than I thought they would be. Online, they look a little dull. In person, they’re more vibrant. Free samples come in every parcel. You do not get to pick them. My samples were a 0.03oz foil of Anti-Age Global Cream and a 0.02oz foil of So Elixir. The latter is a fragrance, so I assume a towelette is inside.

I was almost out of foot scrub when the email for this incredible offer came in. It was the first thing I looked for, and I wish there was something bigger than 1.6oz. At that size, $6 for the Polishing Foot Scrub is not too bad. The one I am using now is cheaper but does not work as well as I’d like. Another works great but is only available at the direct retailer, so I need a larger order to get over its shipping minimum. This is worth a shot.

I also wanted to get a hand cream. With winter coming, I cannot keep enough thick hand creams in stock. My hands get so dry. Initially, I had 1.6oz hand cream in my cart. Those are the thicker ones. For the same price, I saw I could get a 2.5oz Christmas 2015 edition lotion. More lotion for less money and Christmas scents. Sign me up. Yes, I noticed it came in a different container, but I still had high hopes. Not every super thick hand cream comes in an aluminum tube.

I ordered the limited edition Candied Orange and Almond Hand Cream. Although I admit neither of scents immediately scream Christmas, I thought they would smell incredible together. They really do, so I was right. Unfortunately, the lotion is thin. It does not penetrate as deeply as I need it to. This may work for someone with normal hands, but it is not right for someone with very dry hands. Now, my hands are still dry, albeit less so than using nothing, and I want to nibble at them.

I’ve wanted to try some makeup from this line for some time. After seeing it pop up in some subscription boxes (but never mine), I realized I was going to have to purchase it myself without sampling first to try it. Starting with my two favorite (in sheer volume) makeup purchases lipstick and nail polish made the most sense. While I am not opposed to wearing any color at any time, I really like the darker wine and berry colors when it’s cold outside. The Grand Rouge in Mauve Subtil looked like a wine/berry. It was not as dark as I would have liked, but it looked like it would do.

The gold container looks nicer in person than it does online, but it is not very heavy when you pick it up. That means the paint on the container will probably chip.

I know the shade is mauve, but I really thought it looked darker online. When I logged in to look as I was prepping the article, I realized I accidentally ordered this when I had a picture of Deep Purple up. That is totally my error, because I even remember thinking it was dark for a mauve. They are right next to each other online.

The formula is lovely. It is pretty moisturizing. This does not accentuate dry patches or highlight lines. I really loved the color, so picking the wrong one turned out to be a happy mistake. It did not appear as mauve on my lips as it did in the swatch, so it is a very wearable color. Mauves are wearable, but a little more limiting in where you can wear them.

I thankfully did not mess up the nail polish order. Although it’s called Pearly Purple online my Botanical Color Nail Polish in Rose Pourpre looks like the deep purple I expected. It may seem weird to see nail polish swatched on skin. My pedicure is only a few days old, and I am actually testing how long the polish I applied yesterday will last without chipping. No other girls live in my house, and my boys have outlawed painting them.

It actually almost looked reddish when I swatched it.

After allowing it to sit for about a minute, I took another picture to show what the color settled into. I also took a wide shot to show how different the colors I intended to match (not perfectly but close enough were). Oops. Compare this to my other salmon and wine polishes.

Even with ordering the wrong lipstick color and the hand cream that is too thin, I am still happy with this purchase. That could change as I use more things, but I paid $16.50 for everything here. It was too good to pass up.

    I love Yves Rocher! They were the brand that truly pulled me into the world of beauty. Have you tested out that Lavender Foot Scrub yet? It’s one of the few products I’ve ordered from them that I actually would not repurchase (it smells nice, but wasn’t as abrasive as I needed it to be for my feet), but I’d be interested to see if you have a different opinion!

    Yes, I have used the foot scrub. I am not impressed. Like you, I want more exfoliation when it comes to my feet. The only way I would purchase it again is to use it on another body part.

    Have you ever tried the Peppermint foot scrub from The Body Shop? That’s my favorite right now.

    I have not tried it yet, but it is one on my list to try. When it comes to feet, I love Peppermint. I’ve also had good experiences with products from The Body Shop. I just purchased a new scrub from Kiko Milano. If that one does not work out, The Body Shop may be next. Thanks for the tip.
