Yves Rocher Cacao Collection Hand Cream Review

crowley

Yves Rocher Cocoa & Orange Hand Cream ($3.50) is one of three limited edition hand creams that Yves Rocher launched for Holiday 2013 with their traditional Cacaco Collection.

And yes, it does smell like a chocolate orange icon smile

Yves Rocher Cacao Collection Hand Cream

Chocolate Oranges, as far as I’m concerned, were made in hell. Crowley possibly had something to do with their creation but this hand cream, this is addicting!

It’s starting to get cold now and we had our first snow fall yesterday which means dry hands, knees, elbows, and chapped lips are a coming. Keep your hands pampered, hydrated, and soft with Yves Rocher’s Cocoa & Orange Hand Cream! This lightweight, quick absorbing hand cream doesn’t leave hands oily or greasy and plus it scents them like chocolate and oranges what more do you want? Not into chocolate oranges? I gotta say, I’m a HUGE believer Peeps and Orange Chocolates were forged in Hell but I don’t mind the smell of orange and chocolate, there’s something so decadent about it, but just don’t make eat one ok?

On that note if you’re not into you can indulge in Cocoa & Raspberry or Cocoa & Pistachio Nut (this one smells very fresh and almost a touch floral) Hand Creams as well.

Best part?

The $3.50 price tag! Perfect price for stuffing stockings.

    $3.50?? Wow that’s quite the steal! For some reason I have associated Yves Rocher to have expensive things. Idk about this chocolate orange thing though, haha I can see myself just smelling my hands all day long after I put this on!
    Btw, do you know if there is any retailer for Yves Rocher? I want to buy but idk how long it will take for shipping…

      i believe it is catalog/online based only dita never seen it sold anywhere else. you have two weeks to order so I imagine it’ll arrive on time unless they are using pony express lol! most online stores guarantee christmas shipping

        LOLZ I guess so! I did a big order last night, heehee – but unfortunately a bunch of the choc orange stuff was sold out, waaaah (at least on the Canadian website). And although they had lip balms for the other cocoa flavours, they didn’t even have a choc orange lip balm listed…wth? :D

    This looks very interesting. I’m going to have to try it. I am one of the weird people who likes eating orange and chocolate together–chocolate and lemon too. Oh and I LOVE Crowley!

    The pistachio one I’m ok with. But I’m with you on chocolate oranges. Or raspberry for that matter. Blech! I’m a chocolate whore and I like it pure and simple. Fruit and chocolate is a waste of my time LOL!

      thanks Nikita so glad you enjoy Musings. Not as far as I know, believe Yves Rocher is a catalog/online thing only!

    I’ve been meaning to order from this company for quite a while now. I love chocolate & raspberry anything and Cocoa & Pistachio sounds great, but chocolate & orange? Not so much. I may not think chocolate oranges were made in hell, lol, but I had one once and that was more than enough for me :).

      I can recommend the Anti-Asphyxiation Flash Mask (I know, that name is something else!); it’s lovely! :D

    Crowley totally would do that. I have never enjoyed the idea of chocolate + citrus. Meh.
    Although, he does “just want to be loved”, so maybe it wasn’t him? Maybe he made super awesome hand cream that didn’t make you smell like a creepy citrus chocolate factory? Speaking of…my hands are a HOT MESS right now. What are your fave hand creams?

      LOL Lexi :) maybe not…we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt :-D Smitten Hand Cream which is back on retro Lush :) MUST HAVE!
