Amazing New Skin Care From Yes To!

I received some wonderful new products from Yes To for my honest review.  The products are from the Yes to Miracle Oil line, new single use masks and charcoal makeup wipes that are actually black!

 

Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes
Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes

Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes ($5.99 USD) — Yes to charcoal and little black wipes that rid skin of nasty impurities. Formulated with charcoal to help remove dirt and impurities, the detoxifying formula is captured in a very sleek black wipe.

What I think:  This is a pitch black wipe that has a bit of texture to it.  When I remove my makeup, it feels refreshing and even has a little zing to it.  It is hard to see the makeup on the wipe, to make sure I got it all.  But I got used to it and now clean by sections.

Yes to Primrose Oil Wipes
Yes to Primrose Oil Wipes

Yes to Primrose Oil Wipes ($5.99 USD) — Yes To PrimRose Oil Wipes help to calm and soothe skin while cleansing, removing makeup, and moisturizing all-in-one!

Talk about a multi-tasker! Perfect for sensitive skin, these deep cleansing wipes help soothe skin and redness. The 2-in-1 cleansing & moisturizing facial wipes are lightly fragranced, leaving skin smelling ahh-mayzing.

What I think: These moisturizing wipes smell so good!  They remove makeup and clean skin so well, but also hydrate at the same time.  They don’t irritate my skin at all.  I use them in the morning too, just to clean and refresh my face before applying makeup.

Yes To Argan Oil Mud Mask
Yes To Argan Oil Mud Mask

Yes To Argan Oil Mud Mask ($2.99 USD) — Yes to your glowing-self and brightening your day with Argan Oil to help condition and brighten skin.

Perfect for all skin types, the Yes To Argan Oil Mud Mask is super-rich and decadent, providing just the right amount of moisture. Lightly fragranced, the smooth Argan scent will transport you to Morocco while you sit back and enjoy a spa-like experience.

What I think:  I have been using so many sheet masks lately that it was fun to try a new mud mask!  This is a golden yellow color and went on really easily.  I didn’t really detect a scent, but that’s okay.  It felt really nice on.  After 10 minutes I removed it with a wet cloth and my skin was hydrated, like after applying moisturizer!  I used it on a weekend day and didn’t apply moisturizer or anything until evening.  My skin stayed hydrated all day!  LOVE!

Yes to also has so many other great mud and sheet masks for all skin types.

Yes to Primrose Lip Oil
Yes to Primrose Lip Oil

Yes To PrimRose Lip Oil ($4.99 USD) –a lightweight, yet luxurious lip treatment and gloss… all-in-one! Formulated with primrose oil to calm and soothe, the Yes To PrimRose Lip Oil has a hint of color that’s perfect alone or layered on top of lipstick.

What I think: I am loving the lip oil trend.  I have been trying different ones, and I think this one is very good.  It has a tapered applicator that easily applies the product.  The oil has a bit of a rosy scent and color.  It moisturizes well, but I do have to apply often. This also comes in Argan Lip Oil that has a golden color.

New Yes To Products Will Get Your Skin Glowing!

Recently, I was lucky to receive some of the newest Yes to products for my honest review.  I have been testing (and loving) them!

Yes to products are always at least 95% natural, free of parabens, phthalates and SLS, and made with recyclable materials.  And they also are affordable and very effective skincare!

Yes To Cucumbers Cooling Hydrating Mist ($10.99 USD) — Consider yourself warned…this natural hydrating mist has soothing and cooling benefits that are life changing (and its aroma is addicting)! In just a couple quick spritzes, it pampers sensitive skin with instant hydration, thanks to a blend of cucumber, aloe, green tea, and elderflower extracts. It’s also infused with minty fresh all-natural menthol for a cooling kick that’s seriously spa-like. So when you need a shot of moisture that tempts the senses, close your eyes and spahhhhh-ray away!

Yes To Grapefruit Pore Perfection Toning Mist ($10.99 USD) — Want gorgeous, glowy skin? Give this delicious-smelling mist a shot! The natural toning spray (in eco-friendly packaging, naturally) revvs up radiance and reduces the look of pores thanks to grapefruit, kakadu plum, and infusions of vitamin C. It also delivers hydration and works wonders at setting makeup. Just be sure to close those gorgeous peepers before giving yourself a spritz!

What I think:  I love both of these mists because they are so refreshing.  They both give a soft, but steady mist.  You can cover your whole face in one or two sprays. The Cucumbers Cooling Hydrating Mist is very moisturizing while the Grapefruit Pore Perfection Toning Mist is a bit lighter and is great for setting makeup too.  And they both smell amazing!

Yes To Grapefruit Pore Perfection Paper Mask ($15.99) — This natural sheet mask makes skin look bright and radiant and pores look virtually invisible. (What more could you ask for?) Each easy-to-apply, single-use mask is made from sustainable Tencel fibers and infused with a brightening serum featuring grapefruit extract and vitamin C. So with each application, your complexion looks more even and even younger.

Yes To Grapefruit Pore Perfection Brightening Peel ($15.99 USD) — Snap out of it with this spa-like exfoliating treatment that makes complexions look bright and radiant while shrinking the appearance of pores. Formulated with luminous-boosting grapefruit extract and vitamin C, it diminishes dark spots, evens out skin tone, and leaves your face feeling fully rejuvenated. (In other words, this peel gives you get the best of the zest!)

Yes To Grapefruit Pore Perfection Night Treatment ($15.99 USD) — Every sleeping beauty deserves to wake up with bright and radiant skin and practically invisible pores!That’s why this overnight treatment is formulated with grapefruit extract, lilac extract, and tea tree oil (plus potent amounts of vitamin c!) to help amp up radiance and reduce the appearance of pores. In fact, we love the dreamy, lightweight formula so much, we’ve been known to use it in the morning, too!

What I think:  The Yes to Grapefruit line seems well suited for all skin types that need a bit of brightening.  It is excellent for my aging skin! The mask is fun and easy to use.  Place it on the face and wait 10 minutes.  Then remove and massage the remaining serum on skin. My skin was so glowy afterwards.

The Brightening Peel is a quick way to get skin smooth and glowing.  I like to use it in the morning about 3 times a week.  Apply, wait 1 minutes and wash off.  And in the evening, I apply the Night Treatment to cleansed skin and in the morning my pores look smaller and smooth. Love!

A rejuvenating blend of soothing oils and botanical extracts deeply nourish dry, damaged and mature skin, while improving elasticity.

What I think: My skin has been dry, but also really sensitive lately.  I tried a different mask and it burned my face, so I was wary of trying another.  But, I am so glad I tried this mask!  It was so soothing and hydrating, and once I washed it off, my skin was so soft!  I think I will be using this once or twice a week to keep my face soft and moisturized.
