Lucky for me, a few months ago I was sent the Yves Rocher Elixir 7.9 system, which is targeted to people aged 25 years and older to slow down the formation of wrinkles and reactivate the skin's natural moisturization and protection processes. The line is backed by 12 years of research and a combination of 7 plants with anti-aging power (green rice inositol, apple oligosides, aphlioa extract, beet root extract, sandthorn seed extract, aloe vera polyosides, and tara seed extracts) that are recognized by 9 patents.
The Youth Intensifier Serum ($56 CAD for 30 mL) is applied morning and night on clean skin. In the day, I've been using the Youth Energy Day Care ($56 CAD for 40 mL) for normal to combination skin (there is also a dry skin formula and a sensitive skin formula). I really like the creamy gel texture, which feels very lightweight. At night, I apply the thicker balm-like Youth Energy Night Care ($56 CAD for 40 mL). After my respective creams, I have also been using the Youth Energy Eye Care Roll-On ($42 for 15 mL), which has a 3-bead applicator that massages and contours the eye area. I love the cooling sensation but I think I need a miracle product to get rid of my undereye circles!
Overall, I like this line though I'm not sure I've seen any radical changes in my skin in the months I've been using it. Admittedly, I didn't have many visible wrinkles or fines lines to begin with (please stay away forever, haha) so perhaps it is doing its job as a preventative measure. I also haven't experienced any breakouts and the products have lasted a long time even with everyday use. This is a good thing given the fact that these products aren't cheap since I suspect their prices might be a deterrent for some. There are, thankfully, skin care refills ($49 CAD) available, which are an ecological and economical option and can easily be popped into the empty cream jars once done.
