Hi bestie! I’m back with another review and this time I’ll be reviewing a product from Yves Rocher (pronounced as ‘Eev Roshay’), particularly the Yves Rocher Raspberry Peppermint Energizing Exfoliating Shower Gel. Stay with me, will you?
Our Panel of experts, unique since 1959, have selected and combined Peppermint essential oil (in the fragrance), a Raspberry extract and fruit seeds for the pleasure of clean and gently exfoliated skin daily.

Packaging, Texture and Consistency
The Yves Rocher Raspberry Peppermint Exfoliating Shower Gel comes in a 200ml eco-friendly tube with a plastic flip top cap.
It is also transparent so you can actually see the exfoliants (Apricot kernel powder and kiwi seeds) which in my opinion makes the packaging prettier.
The product has a light red colour (which you can’t see clearly because of the lighting) with a gel-like texture to it. It is neither too viscous nor too light.
My Experience with the Yves Rocher Raspberry Peppermint Exfoliating Shower Gel
This product happens to be my first exposure to this Yves Rocher brand and so at the time I got it, I did a little research on the brand. It is a French luxury brand that offers a wide range of plant-based skincare, cosmetics and perfumes. They are one of the few brands that are very intentional about their manufacturing process, making sure it doesn’t impact the environment negatively and I love them for that.
Also, if you know me, you’d know I really like scented body products and this product really made me happy in that aspect. I love how they were able to subtly add the peppermint scent while maintaining the fruitiness of raspberries. It leaves my entire space smelling beautifully and somehow gives me a feeling of luxury.
The Yves Rocher Raspberry Peppermint Exfoliating Shower Gel lathers pretty well too, with a little going a long way. Also, after rinsing the lather off, I love how refreshed my skin looks as it does not dry out or irritate my skin.
Overall I’ve had a great experience with this product.
- Pleasant fragrance that lasts for a while
- Does not dry out the skin
- Little goes a long way
- Lathers well
- Eco-friendly container
- Can’t twist cap to open the tube completely
Would I try this again?
To be honest, this shower gel is definitely something I can get again and would recommend any day and any time for people who love fruity scents. However, I would rather explore more scents from the brand than stick to just the Raspberry Peppermint Exfoliating Shower Gel.
Do you like scented body products? Which ones do you love?
