So, I thought, since I haven’t been using many new products… outside of what I receive in my Birchbox & MyGlam subscriptions, therefore not doing so many ‘favorites’ posts lately, I would introduce these types of posts; where I will call out my favorites brands/companies and highlight the products I love from them.
First up: Yes To!
Now, Yes To began with Yes To Carrots and has branched out to includes: Yes To Carrots, Yes To Cucumbers, Yes To Blueberries, and Yes To Tomatoes. Each line caters to a different skin type and/or skin issue. Yes To Carrots and Yes To Cucumbers also have hair products available.
A little about Yes To for any newbies…
So onto my favorite Yes To products!
Out of all the lines, I regularly use products from the Yes To Cucumbers and Yes To Blueberries lines.
Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes
What they say: Gently remove dirt, sweat and makeup (eye makeup too!) without the need to rinse. Whether you’re out and about, going for a run, or having a late night, these towelettes make it a snap to refresh on-the-go. Packed with green superfoods these all-natural, biodegradable towelettes naturally exfoliate, detoxify, and rejuvenate all-in-one. Stay gorgeous, and go from zero to clean in seconds!
What I say: It is all true! I love these! By far they are the most refreshing and best facial towelettes I have used! I use them on the go, after long days, on too humid-hot days, after any exercise, and nightly as my first step in cleansing my face. They are super cheap too and come in travel size! I would definitely recommend picking up a travel pack to try out.
Soothing Eye Gel
What they say: Your eyes are beautiful, but, yes, sometimes a little sensitive. Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel gently calms, soothes and smoothes your radiant eyes. Naturally reducing puffiness, brightening dark circles, tightening and cooling your skin, it will leave you bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready to take on the world!
What I say: I love this stuff in the mornings or just when my eyes need a real pick me up! I would not agree to the brightening of dark circles, but I do not use this daily – so perhaps over time it could help in that aspect. It is cooling and soothing – just keep it in a cool place 🙂
TIP: A little goes a long way – seriously – one small pump is more than enough for both eyes. Too much and your make-up, if you wear any, will not layer properly.
Yes To Blueberries Line Reducing Lip Treatment
What they say: Clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around lips in 7 days, perfect for someone looking for an added dose of moisture and firming. Formulated with Pacaress Flower, which is clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the lip area. Nourishing ingredients like Coconut Oil and Shea Butter will instantly soften and moisturize lips. Smile… pucker up and get ready for some smoochin’!
What I say: I LOVE this lip treatment! I use it every night without exception – and while I do not have any real line issues, this is more of me being proactive – and I have to say I have noticed in the mornings my lips feel soft, smooth and a bit more ‘firm’ – plus the balm is not greasy at all, very lightweight and nourishing.
Intensive Skin Repair Serum
What they say: The Serum acts as a powerful “vitamin layer” applied directly to clean skin. The Serum can be used under Daily Repairing Moisturizer (during the day) or under Overnight Hydrating Cream (at night). This powerful blend combines organic cotton thistle which is clinically proven to restore and repair age-damaged skin in 7 days, along with anti-oxidant rich blueberries and blackcurrant, which is rich in essential fatty acids to help nourish and soothe skin. Your skin is left feeling oh-so-glowy!
What I say: If I am not using my Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate on my face, I am using this and sometimes both (Kiehl’s layered first)! Though, I usually always apply this nightly onto my neck and decolletage. I have been using this since last year and definitely noticed my skin’s brightness and more healthy appearance. Radiance is the key word I would use to describe the effects this product has. FYI – it looks quite disgusting when you pump it into your hand – and you should apply it quickly. Avoid rubbing it into your skin, just glide it over your skin and let it set, it will feel like a layer, locking in everything – something I actually enjoy in a serum/treatment product. I only apply this at night, as it is more beneficial that way, the ingredients are not being broken down by UV rays nor having to compete with SPF products. Also, it does not play well will make-up, in my opinion.
and there you have it… more brands I love coming soon 🙂
