This year has played host to a few successful beauty brand debuts - and it's only August! This time, let's take a break from Asia and give the floor to an intriguing French brand that has been around since 1959.
Saw this big store-to-be last weekend when I visited SM Southmall
Yves Rocher has different skincare lines for myriad concerns (aging, blemishing, even slimming among other things) as well as everyday natural makeup for the uncomplicated woman. Yves Rocher sets itself apart from other brands by being in charge of harvesting natural ingredients used in their beauty products, manufacturing them, and distributing them. That is how the brand can maintain the quality they claim while keeping the prices down. Yes, it's not super expensive!
I checked the website and observed that the average price point for makeup is $20 while skincare products are at $15. Anti-aging products are at $20- $25. I have a hunch that the PH prices will stay close to the US prices since their best-selling serum is only P990 here ($23.50 in the US, cheaper here). Who knows! I'm crossing my fingers. I'm most interested in the foundations, reviews seem promising.
Anyway, for more brand information, just check out the website or scan this press document. Yves Rocher is opening in SM The Block tomorrow, August 10, and in SM Southmall on August 11.
Interested in anything? What do you think of Yves Rocher?
