As I write this blog post, I am currently on the train from Paris back to Lucerne. My mind went through the whole trip again and just now I’m aware of a few things that we have experienced. Do you know what I mean? If you have had so many great experiences that you realize certain things only after the trip?
One beautiful event was chasing the other. And I am incredibly grateful to be able to join Yves Rocher on this beautiful trip with so many good and exciting people and at the same time to learn so much about the brand Yves Rocher.
On Sunday evening we arrived in Paris by TGV. From Switzerland, we were a total of 4 people. Countries like Germany, Israel, Sweden or even Singapore were part of that. From the driver, we were picked up at Gare de Lion and drove to the restaurant called Lile. The style of the restaurant was a mix of bohemian and chic. Here are some impressions:
After dinner, we went to the hotel Eiffel Blomet. Already in the hotel room, there was this beautifully decorated bed with Yves Rocher products.
On Monday, the day starts with a meditation class in the middle of Saint-Lambert Square in Paris. Then we went to the Fashion Show by Tony Ward in the City Hall.
What a great show. Although the room was felt like 50 degrees, that did not bother me. Because when the show starts, everything was forgotten about it. I reveled in this world of beautiful fabrics and dresses. However, as it is usual for a fashion week – before and after the show a lot of hustle went around, and while the show, the world was in a different sphere 🙂
The next stop, a beautiful and delicious picnic right on the Seine at the Pont Royal. We sat on colorful blankets and wooden pallets were used as tables. There were salads, various vegetables, different dips, fruit juices, bread and delicious desserts.
After lunch, we went on a bike tour. Of course, we did not drive through Paris with a common bike. First, we could be creative and decorated the bikes with colorful bows and flower bouquets.
Then we cycled to the Louvre Square across Paris to Place Colette, where a botanical bubble by Yves Rocher was ready for us. A huge ball in which I felt a bit like in the jungle. On one hand because of the hot temperatures but also because of the look and feel in it. The ball was equipped with Yves Rocher products such as shower gel, shampoo, hand cream, face cream and many more.
Next, we went to the concept store of Yves Rocher on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris. A three-floor store that did not only sell products but also offers separate rooms for massages, facials and body care.
After all these beautiful and exciting events, we went back to the hotel, where we had a makeup and hair session by a professional beauty team. Showered, dressed and styled, we went to the rooftop party. A beautiful evening with great music, lovely people and a backpack full of wonderful moments.
This trip allowed me to get to know the brand Yves Rocher much better. At first, I did not know a lot about the company. After that day, I can honestly confess that I can absolutely identify myself with this brand.
The philosophy of Yves Rocher stands for well-being and strives to be in harmony with nature. Their products are made up of 98% natural ingredients, and even today’s minimal recyclable packaging is fully in line with Yves Rocher’s EcoSystem, which aims to minimize greenhouse gases. Of course, animal experiments have been a taboo for the company for many years.
Yves Rocher has a passion for the world of a plant, as shown by the 2-hectare plant lab located just minutes from the Yves Rocher production site. This idyllic and beautiful place is located in La Gacilly in Brittany. The laboratory is open-air and has over 1500 plant species, including rare or endangered species. A benevolent team of gardeners and botanists care for this area day by day and it is also open to the public.
By the way, which I have not realized for a long time, Yves Rocher not only has the complete body care range for every age and every skin type but also her markup assortment is equipped with eyeshadow, mascara, rouge, make-up, lipstick and much more.
This philosophy and attitude are one of the reasons why I love to use these products. We have to be careful of our nature and it is not just a take for us, but also a return to nature.
What would interest me, how well did you know Yves Rocher?
Looking forward to reading from you 🙂
