I get a lot of comments about my skin from blogging friends and readers here at Far Beyond Love. It is usually after I share a pic on Instagram. Naturally, it is amazing to be complimented but the FaceTune app deserves a lot of credit. The FaceTune app smooths skin, lifts shadows, hides wrinkles, and whitens teeth. It’s hard to not look better when you’re using it on your pics. That being said, I do try to take care of my skin. It’s a good thing too considering I’m not the most talented person when it comes to applying make-up. No doubt, I’m a ‘natural look’ kind of person.
I have a ton of skincare products but one line I just started using lately is Yes to Carrots. I know they have been around for years and I’m crazy late to the game but, well, it happens. Brandon and I are trying to be more conscious about what we buy and I appreciate that Yes to Carrots is mostly natural and paraben-free. They are not totally organic because their products do contain preservatives and fragrance although they do have a fragrance-free option. Still, they are better than similar products on the market. Yes to Carrots is also available in Target which is always a win in my book. 🙂
Should you say Yes to Carrots?
It’s ok. It’s not an everyday cleanser if you wear a lot of make-up or if you have dry skin. I don’t wear a lot of make-up and I usually use Yes to Carrots twice a week (Weds + Sat) to get rid of everyday build-up.
I don’t recommend it as a make-up remover cleanser. This Yes to Carrots product is a cream cleanser and it isn’t good at fully removing your make-up. Use a make-up remover wipe or a good foam cleanser to remove your make-up if it’s a full face kind of day. Save Yes to Carrots for a day when you’re wearing a natural face but need to clean off regular daily dirt and build-up.
Yes to Carrots Daily Cream Cleanser is a bit of a heavy cream and you only need a pea-sized amount to wash your entire face. In order for it to do its best, take the time to really rub it in and rinse thoroughly. A light washing or scrubbing isn’t going to result in much with this cleanser.
I haven’t had any breakouts since I started using it. I’m always a bit wary of cream cleansers for exactly that reason. I tend to breakout when I use cream cleansers because some brands clog my pores despite me rinsing like a fiend. I don’t have that problem with Yes to Carrots and my skin feels clean. This cleanser sells itself as being hydrating but I find that I still use a separate moisturizer anyway. It definitely doesn’t make my skin feel dry but I do still feel like I could use additional hydration. It’s not quite moisturizing enough for me, but I have dry skin. If you have combination or oily skin this will probably be plenty hydrating for you.
It’s not an everyday cleanser for me but it is one I like to have around. It’s really affordable and it’s a good basic, paraben-free, natural cleanser. If you want to check it out, you can see more here.
