Here at The Amazing Blog, we were lucky enough to be sent Yves Rocher Sunkissed Glow Cheek Stain to try out. Yves Rocher is a trusted cosmetic brand from France and they offer an incredibly wide range of cosmetics, skin care, and body care. As blushers and bronzers are my favourite of all beauty products, I just couldn’t wait to try this out to see how it compared to others I have tried.
Unlike most cheek stains, it is very dark brown in colour rather than a rosy pink which can be a bit unsettling at first, but this is not a blusher stain, it can be used as an all over bronzer or to contour the face. The stain is not a roll on, or a stick like many similar products. It is actually tinted water containing Witch Hazel, which means that it lets your skin breathe, and it has very soothing properties.
However as the bottle doesn’t have an applicator, you need to put a small amount on a cotton pad, and then wipe it onto the desired areas on the face. While this stain is not a self-tanning product, it can be used to achieve a natural healthy glow, and personally I preferred to use the stain as an all over tint. You can create a beautiful shimmer by simply shaking the bottle, mixing the tinted water with iridescent gold pearl particles which illuminate the skin in a subtle way. There are no chunks of glitter that can be found in some bronzers, but rather a soft sheen that will make you look sunkissed and radiant. The product applies smoothly onto the skin, although does require some blending if being used to contour the face. I think that it is perfect to use as a face tanner as is a lovely golden colour that doesn’t look fake.
