Yves Rocher Lavande Essentielle Anti-Fatique Feet Massage Iced Gel Review

My husband is always complaining that his feet gets tired after a long day of shopping spree with me, so I thought maybe I should splurge something nice for him especially for his poor tired feet. When we went to the Yves Rocher store in Alamanda Putrajaya, I saw an interesting feet massaging gel which the salesperson told me that it has anti-fatique properties. So the next time I went to the shop, I bought the Yves Rocher Lavande Anti-Fatique Feet Massage Iced Gel.

The Lavande Anti-fatique Iced Gel is made with essential oil of organic lavender. It gives relief and intense freshness for hot feet and tired, heavy legs. The product contains key botanicals such as essential oil of organic lavender, organic lavender water, essential oil of peppermint, ginseng extract, menthol and it contains no animal ingredients.

The Lavade Iced Gel comes in a 100 ml rounded triangular plastic pet bottle with a very unique screw on cap. I really liked the whole concept of the packaging because it looked so darn lovely (I am so suckered by nice and lovely looking packages!). The label on the front consists of the logo for the Lavande Essentielle line and the product's name printed underneath it plus a very small logo of Yves Rocher's logo at the bottom. Printed at the back of the bottle is the description and ingredients of the product.

The ingredients listed for this massage gel is: Aqua, Alcohol Denat, Lavandula Angustifolia Water, Glycerin, PEG-7, Glyceryl Cocoate, Butylene Glycol, Menthol, Oleth-10, Oleth-20, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil, Mentha Periperita Oil, Panax Ginseng Extract, Linalool, Tetrasodium Edta, Sodium Hydroxide, Propylene Glycol, Limonene, CI 17200, CI 42090.
Ingredients and product information printed on the back of the bottle.

To open the bottle, you would have to twist the cap anti-clockwise:

The opening of the bottle is just enough for the iced-gel to go through but not large enough to put a finger through to pick the substance out.
Looked kind of big in this picture but in real life the opening is actually smaller.

The Iced Gel smelled strongly of peppermint fused with soothing lavender. There's also a hint of menthol mixed somewhere in the scent. The texture is gel-like and is quite runny which makes it easy to be applied on the skin. The colour of the gel is attractively purplish and translucent. Massaging the gel into the skin is quite a breeze as it is easily absorbed by the skin. Intense freshness is really felt at first usage of the gel as there is a tingling cool and minty feeling whilst massaging the ice-gel on the feet and up the legs. It does make the feet feel more relaxed and fresh after a tiring day of walking here and there. The cool minty effect lingers for some time giving the feet a soothing feeling. This is a very nice bedtime gel where you can massage the icy gel on your feet, sleep and wake up with a relaxed and less tired feet.

Here's what the iced-gel looked like (it's supposed to be applied on feet, I've put it on my hand just for this reviewing purposes):
The clear purple soothing gel. It felt minty where the gel touches the skin.

Here's how the iced-gel looked like when spread out:
The gel is easily spread and absorbed by my skin. Leaves a nice and tingly minty feeling. I like!!

My verdict: I love this Anti-Fatique Iced Gel! It's so minty and soothing and it made my feet felt refreshed and relaxed after using it. My husband also agrees with me on this and he also likes the iced gel. Words of advice though, if you don't want to have very minty hands whilst sleeping, you'd better wash your hands after massaging the gel or maybe ask your husband/wife to do it for you.

You can pick up a bottle of iced goodness for RM45 at any Yves Rocher's outlet.
