Yves Rocher Sebo Specific 2 in 1 Cleanser + Anti-Imperfection Lotion Review

I am a lazy bum when it comes to applying moisturizer so my skin sometimes becomes dry on certain areas but the cursed t-zone is still oily all the time. So, in my attempt to rectify my laziness and give my skin a little bit of hydration where it is needed, I purchased a bottle of Yves Rocher's Sebo Specific 2 in Cleanser + Anti-Imperfection Lotion which was highly recommended by a friend and the Sales Assistant there. She told me that this cleanser + lotion combo is actually a combination of cleanser/toner and a pore refining lotion/moisturizer. Seeing that it's a simple one step product that covers three steps, I am sold! Plus, it's made for oily/combination skin. ( ^_^ )

Product description: This cleansing lotion is more than perfect for oily and combination skin. It reduces skin blemishes and removes impurities in one go. It's unique creamy milky texture leaves skin matte and fresh. It has double advantage, leaves no greasy film on the skin and does not dry out. Dermatology tested. Scutellaria Baicalensis Root contains molecules called flavonoids which have antioxidants properties. Flavonoids from this plant also has an extraordinary power to brighten the skin from within.

The 2 in 1 Cleanser + Anti-Imperfection Lotion can be used morning and night as a single treatment program tailored for a 1-2-3 clear skin everyday:
1 - Cleanse skin and removes impurities by applying over face with cotton pad, with or without rinsing with water.
2 - Mositurizes the skin in the morning
3 - Optimized night treatment effect.

Packaging: The 2-in-1 Cleanser and Lotion comes in a green translucent triangular plastic pet bottle with a green coloured screw on cap. The product weighs 150 ml. It has a wide opening which allows the lotion to flow out easily from the bottle.

Texture: The light green coloured cleanser+lotion combo has a very runny liquid-ish texture. It absorbs really well into the skin without leaving any sticky feeling behind (except if you put too much on). There is a slight cool feeling when the lotion is applied on the skin. As a day moisturizer, the lotion do keep my skin matte for a couple of hours before my skin starts to feel oily and sticky again. As an overnight treatment, this lotion performs superbly. I prefer to apply a thick layer on my face before I go to bed. It does feel a little bit sticky because the layer is thick but the effect the next morning when I wake up is just to die for. My skin does not feel greasy at all. The only oily feeling I got was from the residue of the lotion. My skin felt really soft and hydrated after cleansing the residue off. Love!

The liquid texture of the lotion makes it easy to spread evenly.

Scent: The cleanser+lotion combo has a very pleasant subtle sweet leafy smell mixed with a subtle hint of floral scent that is surprisingly not bad at all. It does smell fresh and clean. There is a bit of astringent scent but not too strong.

My verdict: I really like this cleanser+lotion combo as an overnight treatment lotion because it made my skin felt soft and supple the next morning. It is also great to use as a day moisturizer too. The scent is really pleasant and makes me think of things clean and fresh. So far this product didn't give me any blemishes but I don't really notice any difference with my pores. Would I repurchase this? I might, to use as an overnight treatment lotion but I get bored with skincare too fast so I'm on the fence about this one.

Price: RM39 at Yves Rocher shop in Alamanda.
