Yves Rocher Creamy Khol & SOS Split Ends Treatment

A few years ago I had only heard of Yves Rocher and truthfully associated it with products my mother or grandmother would use. I'm not sure why but it just never appealed to me until I saw an ad somewhere and decided to check out there website.

Once I did I realized that there were SO many things I would love to try and so I placed an order and even got a free beach blanket included as a gift with purchase. The items arrived (I ordered some creams) and I happily used the products and when they finished I meant to order more however never got around to it.

That was about a year ago so when I was contacted by a rep at Yves Rocher to test out some of their products I couldn't say no! I chose the Creamy Khol & SOS Split Ends Treatment and have been testing them out since their arrival.


What I love about the Creamy Khol is that it comes in this cute lipstick style packaging. It twists up to reveal a cone shaped eye khol in an intense black colour. It's fully formulated with natural ingredients and has a rich and creamy texture.

I love that the packaging makes it easy to find when I drop it in my "big" purse cuz my slim pencil liners seem to always get lost amongst my pens and papers. The creamy texture makes it super easy to apply and is great for achieving that smudged liner look.

The color is intense which I love however when used on my lower water line it never says for more then a few hours which I don't like. I'm also puzzled as to how this would continue to work once the point wears down a bit since I don't think you can sharpen it.

Overall I think this liner is compact, easy for on the go application and is currently on sale for 50% off! Regularly $16.00 its now just $8.00 which is a great price for it being 100% natural Origin!


The SOS Split Ends Treatment was something I was interested in because I'm horrible at getting my hair trimmed regularly therefore I have split ends and wanted something that would help my poor hair.
I have used this product a few times and although I'm not sure if its solved my split end problem just yet, it has made my hair softer and made it appear healthier (to me anyways). It has a generic shampoo smell to it and is used as a leave in treatment on damp or dry hair. Its also 100% botanical which again is a huge plus for me.

I will continue to use this product to see if it indeed helps my split ends but also for the fact that's its made my hair softer which I love. It currently retails on YvesRocher.ca for $16.00 for a 50ml tube.



I am once again pleased with my Yves Rocher products and suggest checking out their website for great products, specials and amazing gift with purchases!

Do you own any Yves Rocher products? What would you suggest I try next time?

Great review! The liner looked great to me at first. Intense pigmentation, soft texture, but what a great point about not being able to sharpen it (or being unsure on how to sharpen it). Cool that it's 100% natural origin.

The split-end treatment sounds nice enough. Glad it makes your hair look healthier!

Cool stuff! I think with that liner, it keeps is shape as you use it, because it wears down equally.

I had a kajal from Asia, and I would use it by putting it near my lower waterline, closing my eyes, and swiping it back and forth. When I opened my eyes, they were perfectly tightlined - but as you found - it would smudge over time :-(

But the kajal kept its point, because it wore down evenly with use.
