I’ve used the Yes To…. brands many times in the past- one of my favorites is the Yes to Tomatoes body lotion which has a really nice scent and is lovely for after a bath or shower.
Recently I tried the Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser and the Yes to Grapefruit Correct and Repair. Here are my thoughts!
Charcoal is hot ingredient right now, I’ve seen it in numerous products lately and use it myself to brighten and whiten teeth.
Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser is ideal for acne prone skin. Deep cleans the skin with ingredients that include antioxidants, jojoba spheres for light exfoliation and salicylic acid, a known acne fighter.
Curious about the ingredients? Here they are:
Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 1% Inactive Ingredients Water, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Coco-Sulfate, Propanediol, Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Glyceryl Caprylate,Polylactic Acid, Charcoal Powder, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract*, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract*, Cucurbita Pepo(Pumpkin), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*,Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos Tea) Extract*, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Glyceryl Undecylenate, Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Alcohol, Fragrance. *Certified Organic Ingredient
These products are Paraben, SLS, and Silicone Free, plus they are cruelty free.
Yes to Grapefruit Correct and Repair smells really nice, its the first thing I noticed when I opened the jar! This is a gentle peel that contains grapefruit extract and vitamin C to brighten dull skin.
This peel will help with skin turnover, brighten dark spots and create a more luminous complexion. Its quick and easy to use and washes off with a simple wipe with a warm cloth.
I use this with hopes of decreasing the severity of dark spots- probably from when I used to sun bathe at the Jersey shore back in the day!

These products are easy to find online or in the store, they are also affordable. My only caution is for those who are sensitive to fragrance because these do carry a scent. The Yes to Carrots line offer several fragrance free products which you can view here.
