Yes To Carrots: Beauty Review


I am always on the lookout for fantastic organic and gluten free beauty products. Going natural has been really helping to clean up my skin and really does rejuvenate the skin much better than chemicals, at least in my opinion.

Yes To Inc. has been around since 2006, and while I am just now realizing the true wonderful qualities of their lines, I wish I had known about them sooner.

Yes To Inc. has 3 unique collections: Yes To Carrots, Yes To Tomatoes, and Yes To Cucumbers. They create natural, paraben-free personal care products that combines organic fruits and vegetables with a special elixir derived from the Dead Sea to nourish and hydrate naturally.


Yes To Carrots: C Me Smile Lip Butter
MSRP: $3.69 at Walgreens; $2.99 at www.yestocarrots.com
Available at: Walgreens, Target, Duane Reade, Meijer, drugstore.com, and yestocarrots.com


I’ve been searching for new lip balms, and have found quite a few new favorites lately, this line being one of them. The Yes To Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butter has 5 great flavors including: Berry, Carrot, Citrus, Melon, and Mint. I was lucky to try all of them and honestly, I can’t pick one as a favorite. I loved them all! However, I would say that my top 2 would be Berry and Melon. They are very reasonably priced, so go ahead and try one, or two… or five. :)


Yes To Carrots: Can you C Me? Eye and Face Makeup Remover
MSRP: $9.99
Available at: Walgreens, Target, Duane Reade, Meijer, drugstore.com, and yestocarrots.com


I’ve tried many different eye makeup removers, and most leave my sensitive eyes quite red and stinging with pain. I’ve tried ones that range anywhere from $3 - $30. I hadn’t found one I really liked until I used the Can you C Me? Eye and Face Makeup Remover from Yes To Carrots. It didn’t sting and it didn’t leave my eyes red! Plus, as an extreme bonus I can also use it to remove my makeup with. This eye and makeup remover contains beta carotene, Dead Sea minerals and aloe vera. Fantastic product.


Yes To Cucumbers: Cool Calming Cucumber and Aloe Body Gel
MSRP: $9.99
Available at: Walgreens, walgreens.com, and yestocarrots.com


I try to stay out of the sun as often as I can. I happen to burn quite easily, and finding out that blondes with green eyes and fair complexions who have had five or more sunburns are much more prone to skin cancer than others, I don’t make it a habit to sunbathe. However, I do sometimes get some sun when doing yard work and such, and there are always pollutants in the air that we’re exposed to on a daily basis. The Cool Calming Cucumber and Aloe Body Gel is used for both sun exposure and air pollutants. I was a little pink (not burned) last weekend, and used this on the exposed areas. It left my skin cool, soothed, and relaxed. Well worth the price for this product, especially if you are overexposed to the sun or air pollutants. I suggest bringing this with you before going on a beach trip or anywhere you may get a little too much sun.


Yes To Tomatoes: Truly Terrific Body Butter
MSRP: $12.99
Available at: Walgreens, walgreens.com, and yestocarrots.com


I happen to quite like lotions and body butters, but sometimes after trying it out it is way too greasy for me and I never end up using it again. I am very happy to say that the Truly Terrific Body Butter worked like it says and was not greasy. It was moisturizing and after using it for a week I could notice that it did leave my skin softer. The price and quality of this body butter is well worth it!

once upon a time I was having a crying jag which resulted in my VERY puffy eyes. My sweet saintly wonderful grandmother suggested that I lie down and place fresh cucumber slices over my eyes...

I still don't know if it works

I DO however know that I'm deathly allergic to cucumbers.

true story.

Carrots on the other hand are fine, I might have to check out some good healthy natural products that I'm not allergic to :)

I am glad it is at WalGreens we are so dry (our skin) out here in Arizona and we are not use to using lotion/moisturizer everyday. We use sunscreen but we need to moisturize too. I am going to head over WalGreens and grab the Truly Terrific Body Butter!
Thanks!

thanks for the review, I saw this product at a local drugstore but never knew if it was good or not and now I know I should try it out!

Yumm fruity lipbalms. I love candy flavored or fruit flavored lipbalms. Gotta say I'll choose strawberry or grape, if they have one.
