If you are visiting from ThePeacefulMom, welcome to my new little blog! Thank you Kimberlee for choosing my “Clothe Your Kids on A Budget” article as a guest post! I am super excited! I am working on a couple free printables to help you create a kid’s school wardrobe on a budget – watch for that later today!
I am a little behind in posting this week and am on a catch up schedule but I hope you enjoy your visit!
Now onto my regularly scheduled product review:
I want you to know right off that I am not getting paid/sponsored/rewarded for this review…I just really love these products.
I was first introduced to, Yes to, by a friend but was hesitant to commit as I have crazy sensitive yet weird combination skin issues. I hate trying new face products but what I was using (since college) just wasn’t cutting it. At 32 suffice to say my skin has changed since 22. :/
So I committed as far as a $2.48 (on clearance) tube of lip tint and I found it light to wear and non-tacky (as in sticky) and generally pleasant to wear. It soon usurped my previous gloss as my go to staple.
- Yes to Carrots: Lip Tint
I still was hesitant to commit money on a new line of facial cleansing products though. At least I was until Plum District did a fantastic deal…$35 of product for $15. So I happily gave up my $15 and placed my then $1.75 order for the following:
Yes to Blueberries (age-refresh) Smoothing Daily Cleanser
Yes to Blueberries Daily Moisturizer with spf 30
Yes to Carrots Daily Moisturizer Body Lotion
A week later I received a package and it was missing the Yes to Blueberries Moisturizer with spf 30. I am learning to be a go with the flow kind of person so instead of being upset I went into the bathroom and washed my face with the Smoothing Daily Cleanser…and the heavens parted…okay not really but I was amazed!
My skin felt great immediately. It cut the oily stuff in my T-zone and all of my skin had a subtle glow to it.
That night I used it again and then the next morning I woke up and my skin was still glowing…say what?!?!?!
So I am in love with Yes to Blueberries!
I love the Yes to Carrots Body Lotion too. It isn’t greasy it is light soaks into your skin and after a couple weeks of use my dehydrated skin it was back to its pre-move state. Note: we just moved from South Texas (sub-tropical climate) to Northern Colorado (in the middle of a drought) and my skin was dry as a desert, parched. Added bonus: it feels crazy awesome on minor sunburns!
Again it is love!
And of that missing Yes to Blueberries Daily Moisturizer well Yes To called me and apologized but they ran out of stock – that Plum District deal was very popular. Could I pick another item or two that totaled the same amount. So I opted for the:
Yes to Cucumbers (sensitive skin) Facial Towelettes
and the Yes to Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask
First the Towelettes:
They cut the oil in my T-zone. They aren’t abrasive at all but work great at light exfoliating and also leave that same wonderful glow. I use them in the morning now and the Yes to Blueberries at night. I also let my six year-old daughter use the towelettes at night. I feel comfortable with this because there are no harsh chemicals in them. It is also getting her in the habit of caring for her skin now and an added bonus – she feels so big to get to use mommy’s stuff.
The Calming Facial Mask is great too. It is a once a week thing but it helps reduce the redness (mild rosacia) on my cheeks…again a win!
I have been using the products for two weeks now sans any moisturizer and my skin looks better than it did when I was 22. I have some fine lines that I didn’t then but my skin has never glowed like this. I still had some breakouts but three pimples instead of 12 is a vast improvement. Blackheads are disappearing (aided by pore strips) but aren’t coming back. It was worth the $16.75. Orders over $35 result in free shipping and so I felt fine dropping an extra $1.75 on product.
When it comes back in stock at our local Target I am going to snap up the Yes to Blueberries daily moisturizer with SPF.
I would also like to add that the products aren’t wasteful. It takes a single fingertip of product to wash my entire face. I found that even with the body lotion less product covers more surface area. They do have a scent, the cucumber being the strongest, but they aren’t overpowering. The products are all natural which also makes me feel good about it. They also aren’t really anymore expensive than any other facial care line out there – especially true of the “age-defying” regimens.
I will add that you might find that, online, these are sold out right now…but Target carries the Yes To line as does Walgreens. Target’s prices are generally on par with the online pricing, and Walgreens often offers great clearance/seasonal sales on the Yes To line of products. :D
And did I mention the glow?
