Yes to...Carrots & Cucumbers

Yes to are a brand that I'm aware of but I haven't personally tried anything from any of their five different ranges that include Carrots, Cucumbers, Blueberries, Tomatoes and Grapefruit. Each range addresses a different skin type and the products that I have to try are for normal to dry skin (carrots) and sensitive skin (cucumbers). I'm not quite sure if it applies to all ranges but the two I have consist of at least 95% natural ingredients and they're free from parabens, petroleum, SLS and phthalates. I did have to Google that last one and they're chemicals used to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl, lovely! 

I've been trying the Yes to Carrots Exfoliating cleanser* and Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming moisturiser*.

The Yes to Carrots range is the original range from the brand and features a moisturising formula to soften and hydrate skin and hair. They contain beta-carotene which protects skin from damaging free radicals and shea butter, sweet almond oil and avocado for moisturisation and improving the appearance of dry skin. The range also includes a shampoo and conditioner, facial cleansing wipes, an eye cream, day and night cream, body wash, body lotion, body butter and hand cream.  

The Yes to Carrots Exfoliating cleanser is a creamy cleanser containing finely ground bamboo to act as the exfoliant. The bamboo is pretty much invisible within the cleanser but if you look closely you can see little gritty white bits within the cream. This isn't the harshest exfoliator I've tried but it's also not the most gentle. In general I now prefer acid exfoliators over manual ones and this is just bordering on being a little too harsh for me, but it's fine if I go gently. I'm currently suffering with very dry and dehydrated skin with flaky patches that are proving persistent and this does a good job of manually scrubbing the dry skin away. 

Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming moisturiser

The Yes to Cucumbers range is hypo-allergenic and dermatologist tested to calm, soothe and protect sensitive skin. The cucumbers range contains cucumbers and aloe vera, which are rich in vitamins and minerals and have soothing and cooling properties. It also contains green tea as an astringent for treating troubled skin and breakouts and spirulina which is an antioxidant. The cucumbers range is smaller than the carrots range but also contains a shampoo and conditioner, eye gel, facial wipes, gel cleanser, face mask and body wash. 

The Daily Calming moisturiser comes with a pump which I always prefer over a pot for hygiene reasons but also because I always have long nails and it really annoys me getting cream under them. This is a light cream with quite a strong cucumber scent. I know cucumbers don't really have a strong smell, but if you don't like the smell of cucumbers you might not be keen on this. For some reason despite being a light cream I thought my skin might have trouble absorbing it, because it likes to be a pain, but it absorbs completely leaving soft smooth skin. It also does have a slight cooling and soothing feel to it. This is ideal as a morning moisturiser and it has been coping quite well with my dry skin with a hydrating serum layered underneath. This is a nice little budget moisturiser.

The Yes to Carrots Exfoliating cleanser is £6.99 and the Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming moisturiser is £11.99 and both are available in Boots and Whole Foods stores. 

Have you tried anything from any of the Yes to ranges?

  2. I haven't actually heard of this brand, I'm not sure I'd get on with the cucumber smell. Whenever I smell it it just reminds of soggy cucumber and tuna sandwiches at school - not ideal!

  3. I've tried the cucumber wipes and they really irritated my sensitive skin so I'm definitely put off from trying more from the brand :( x

    1. I was a little unsure because I remember when several people said the cucumber wipes irritated their skin but I didn't have a problem at all with these products and my skin reacts quite easily x
