3 new ways to turn your bathroom into a home spa

Apart from perfume I also like other scented products. I like to use candles but I rarely buy any because they are usually quite expensive & I feel a bit guilty if I were to spend money on something that will burn relatively quickly. That’s why I often treat myself to scented shower products. I’m especially happy if I can find something at a reasonable price and with a fragrance I like because then I know that I’ll enjoy the product. I would hesitate more were I to buy a more pricy item.


That’s why today I’m happy to share my discovery from few days ago. Yves Rocher has introduced 3 new beautiful scents to their Plaisirs Nature shower range. All of them containt at least 98% of naturally derived ingredients and the new lines have a simply wonderful scent.
Magnolia & White Tea (shown left) – this pearly gel with delicate pink hue has a very gentle and silky scent of soft, watery magnolia flowers combined with a lightly green fragrance of white tea.
Pomegranate & Pink Berries (shown middle) – this red tinged shower gel will wake you up with an invigorating aroma of tart pomegranate mixed with the smell of sweet red berries, especially raspberries and strawberries. Interesting that in Poland this one is called Pomegranate & Pink Pepper [baies roses]. Pepper is also present in the composition in my opinion.
Cotton Flower & Mimosa (shown right) – this yellowish shower gel with a pearly effect will bring extra pleasure to your bathroom rituals. Its relaxing aroma combines a soft and fluffy scent of cotton flower with a delightful aroma of mimosa pom-poms. The latter one is very realistic, adding a sweet and powdery yellow aroma to this shower product. This one is my favorite from the bunch.

Best part about these shower gels is the fact that they cost circa 4,50 euro for a 400 ml bottle. What’s your favorite shower product? Which one, if any, would you like to see in your bathroom?

    Perfect timing! I was just looking at the Yves Rocher catalog and thinking about buying these. The Cotton and Mimosa sounds very nice and the pomegranate gel has a great color.

    I have a ridiculous amount of shower products that I probably should stop buying for the next 3 years. Seriously…but then again, I am always game for trying something new. In the winter months where skin is dry even with application of body lotion, I tend to go with unscented so as not to irritate the skin further. My newest obsession is a bar soap I got from Trader Joe’s – Goat Milk Soap with Olive Oil & Honey ($1.99 for a 140 gram bar). My latest scented shower gel purchase is Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche which was featured in one of the Daily Lemming posts. In February, I may bring out the iris-based shower gels to go along with Undina’s Iris month; I have Chanel No. 19, Le Labo Iris 39 and Prada Infusion d’ Iris.

    I don’t think I’ve ordered anything from Yves Rocher in the last 5 years, if no longer (there are no retail stores in the U.S., you can buy this brand only by catalog or online) but your post tempted me: mimosa! how can I not? So I hurried to the site… just to discover that it is not available (yet?) from the U.S. site. But I’ll keep an eye on it and will get it eventually.

    I have a couple of nice candles at home but I usually also can’t persuade myself to spend money on them: out of all fragrant products candles seem (to me) like the least worthy investment.

      Shower gels are honestly the only thing I buy from YR (not counting the time when my mom once asked for a strengthening mascara) because I think they are good value for money.
      Ricky in first comment says she saw them in the catalogue. Interesting that you don’t have brick & mortar YR shops. Here they are in every shopping mall!

      I fully agree with candle. They are awesome and I’m always happy to get one as a gift but I never bought any really good one for myself

      I briefly had an Yves Rocher obsession. When I was in Madrid in late 2015, I was super excited when the tour bus drove past an Yves Rocher store several times but I got lost trying to get there myself. Summer of 2016 I was in Barcelona a few days before a cruise and voila, Yves Rocher..so my sister and I went in to browse and buy several times (actually, every time we walked past, we just had to go in). Anyway, all these to say that some products never make it to the online catalog visible to the U.S. folks (e.g. Cuir Vetiver) and you may need to just find a mule to do your shopping.

        Actually, I know that ๐Ÿ™‚ And I had YRโ€™s perfume muled to me on a couple of occasions (my old flame Nature in a leaf bottle and lilacs mini that never appeared here), but for a $6 shower gel it feels like an overkill… But I see what my perfume mule can do if that mimosa doesnโ€™t come to the online catalog soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like the No.19 lightly scented bath gel. I redeemed my drug store points to buy it. Next, Iโ€™m thinking I should get the body lotion. I also favour the Lush Olive Branch shower gel. It smells natural, and has a silky luxurious feel to it.
