Hi Everyone,

I know, I know, what is "Yonka Girl" doing talking about Decleor, right? Well, I have always been told that Declear and Yonka are very similar lines (made from natural products and very aromatherapy-oriented).

In any case, in my order last week from EDS, I received the Aromessence Ylang Ylang Night Balm, the Fluide Hydra-Mat Regulateur, and the Ylang Ylang concentrate.

I've been using the products for a few days now, and I must say that it's kind of so-so. It smells really good, but I can't say that it's done a lot for my skin.

The best part is the Ylang Ylang concentrate. It's almost comparable to concentrated tea tree oil (minus the minty sensation). I just feel like the Ylang Ylang oil goes straight to the skin problem. The Regulateur (regulating fluid) smells REALLY GREAT, but I don't think it makes my skin feel very different. Not like Pamplemousse (Yonka) or Creme 15 (by Yonka).

Finally, the Night Balm is a bit too greasy for my skin. I think I might be using too much, but it feels very thick. My boyfriend kissed me on the cheek when I had it on and he was like, "Wow, what's all this grease?" I felt kinda bad for him ha ha ha, but I like lotions and moisturizers that sink into the skin and don't leave the residue on top.

Just my two cents . . . I know Decleor is really awesome for others, so I can't really convince anyone NOT to use the products. I have oily skin and sensitive skin, though, so it's hard to find something that complements my skin as well as Yonka. I almost want to use the regulating fluid just cuz it smells so good!!!!! Very Happy

Overall, the trio of products is so-so. I really appreciate EDS sending me the samples since I have been very curious about Decleor for so long. I'm still waiting for my next shipment from EDS (wow, two shipments in a span of 3 weeks . . . so EXCITING!), so I'll write more reviews then Smile

Hi Lisa,

I haven't actually tried any of the three products you mentioned. But I have a full size Essential Balm and a sample of the IRIS balm I think. The trick is to warm the product up and then it doesn't feel that thick. Though, I'm not sure about the Ylang Ylang balm, perhaps it IS thick even after warming it up.

I've so far liked a lot of Decleor products (apart from the recently mentioned Hydra Floral mask Sad). Don't write Decleor off just yet, try other things. The Aromessence Angelique is lovely and sinks right in! Though it's for dry skin and I'm not sure what your skin type is. The Aromessence Neroli is also very good.

Lookin' forward to your reviews Very Happy
