January is such a miserable month for many of us following the excitement of December, and it’s always such a long month waiting for payday. If you’re subscribed to any newsletters from beauty brands, I can guarantee you’ll have been bombarded with skin detoxing recommendations as we deal with the after effects of over indulging throughout the festive season. I know my skin isn’t looking its best right now so I’m definitely trying to up my skincare game to help improve my skin and I’ve been using a selection of Yes To Natural Skincare Saviours in order to help me achieve that goal.
If you’re completely new to the Yes To brand, they were created back in 2006 by two friends in California who wanted to create a super-natural beauty range that was made from fruit and vegetables. Their vision was to develop a range that worked with proven instant results, guilt-free, affordable and free of all known nasties. Yes to is now the fastest growing natural beauty brand in the US and No.1 in masks outselling L’Oréal! Yes to is now a global leader in natural beauty products, with award-winning formulas and unique collections, that can be found in 10 countries globally and over 27K+ stores across the world. Their products are at least 95% natural, free from parabens and made with recyclable materials. Plus all of the Yes To Natural Skincare Saviours are budget friendly with super colourful and fun packaging, and can be found in the likes of Superdrug, Feelunique and Holland & Barrett.
The first of my Yes To Natural Skincare Saviours is the Yes To Coconut Moisturising Coconut Oil Stick £9.98. This product is designed for drier skin types and it’s even won an award. Essentially it’s exactly what the name suggests – a solid coconut oil stick with a mess free formula and can be used on the face, body or anywhere you need extra hydration. It has a non-greasy texture which really surprised me as coconut oil can be a little greasy but this isn’t remotely greasy or sticky regardless of where you apply it, and the solid stick melts on contact with the skin. It’s extremely easy to apply as you literally just swipe the stick across the skin and then use your hands to massage it in, but you don’t even have to massage it in if you’re short on time so it’s ideal for after a morning shower when you need to get ready for work without waiting around for it to dry. In addition to the coconut, it also contains beeswax which feels very softening and hydrating on the skin.
From the Yes To Coconut range to the Yes To Cucumbers range with my next Yes To natural skincare saviour. The Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturiser £11.98 is designed for sensitive skin, and claims to delight your skin with an extra dose of proteins and nutrients to purify and regenerate your complexion – while enhancing its natural healthy glow with gentle, fast-absorbing hydration. This moisturiser smells like freshly sliced cucumber and is a lightweight white lotion which absorbs with very little effort. When massaging the lotion, it strangely becomes matte almost like a mattifying primer but it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry after mattifying. I personally need a more hydration moisturiser especially in the winter months but it’s a good calming moisturiser particularly if you want to mattify shine before applying your makeup.
The next product I’ve been trying is the Yes To Grapefruit Glow Enhancing Vitamin C Booster £9.98 and it has such an interesting formulation. It can be used in two ways – either alone or by mixing it with favourite skincare products such as moisturisers, scrubs, cleansers, eye creams and masks to reveal smoother, glowing skin. The booster is packaged within a squeezy plastic tube with a rounded tip and the product is basically a viscous liquid and it took me a few go’s before working out how much product is needed as it does drop out quite quickly but I prefer to start with only a small amount to start with so I don’t dilute the products I’m mixing it with. I really like using these drops with my hydrating masks to add some much needed radiance, but it works with almost any skincare product.
The Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Peel Off Mask £3.98 is available to purchase in both a tube and also a 10ml one use sachet, for all skin types with 97% natural ingredients. Formulated with charcoal and tomato extract to help eliminate dead skin and excess oil, this single use peel off mask helps to leave skin naturally clear. I have super dry and sensitive skin so this isn’t a mask I’ve used right now as my skin’s been so tight and uncomfortable thanks to the cooler temperatures but it sounds like the ideal kind of mask for using the night before a special occasion to give your complexion a boost.
The next mask I have from my selection of Yes To natural skincare saviours is the Yes To Tomatoes Blemish Fighting Bubbling Paper Mask £4 targeted towards those with breakout prone skin. It’s a single use paper mask which you apply over the face and oxygenation occurs with bubbles appearing all over the paper with tomatoes, salicylic acid and oxygen to help purify, deep clean and get rid of those pesky pimples and blackheads. I love a good bubble mask and will be keeping this mask for when my skin’s struggling with blemishes as my skin really works well with salicylic acid.
The last product is the Yes To Detoxifying Charcoal Sleep Mask £2.99 which is another single use mask from the Yes To Tomatoes range. The mask has a rich cream formula that absorbs easily and leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and clear of those pesky blemishes, and Yes To claims to not transfer onto your pillows. In the morning you simply rinse it away. I really like using sleeping masks as they allow the product to penetrate the skin over night and it’s designed for those with breakout-prone skin.
You can even purchase Yes To products whilst doing your food shop too which is amazing as they’re now stocked in selected Tesco stores, and also Sainsbury’s.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of these Yes To natural skincare saviours?
