Yes to Coconut | Hydrate & Restore
You already know, I love Yes To products. It's easy to get behind a brand that offers affordable, quality naturally-derived products. I was so thrilled when they contacted me about trying out some of their new products from their coconut line, and I have to say - this line is awesome!
Yes To's coconut products aim to hydrate the skin, and when using all three of these products, I can bet you'll notice your skin holding its own against the dry winter weather. I was sent the Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask ($15.99 for 2 oz), the Ultra Hydrating Creme Cleanser ($9.99 for 4 oz) and the Ultra Hydrating Facial Souffle Moisturizer ($14.99 for 1.7 oz). I'm not crazy about coconut-scented products, but all of these are scented very very lightly and they don't smell like fake disgusting coconut - they smell like a real, refreshing just-chopped coconut. And it's quite nice to use something so tropical in the dead of winter.
Let's go in order of what you'd use, first to last. To start things off, let's chat about the Creme Cleanser. This is a very gentle, milky face wash formulated with coconut oil. Coconut oil can do so many good things for your skin: it smooths, retains moisture, prevents against premature aging of the skin, plus it's antimicrobial so it'll kill any bacteria on your skin. So, with all that in mind, this is a fabulous cleanser! I like to use it in the morning to refresh my face and get rid of any sleep-grime.
The Facial Mask is a quick 10-minute treatment specifically for moisturizing the skin. It's made up of coconut oil, avocado oil, jojoba seed oil and natural clay to detoxify. It dries without making your face feel tight and squeaky. After washing it off, my face really did feel nourished and hydrated.
My favorite of the three products is the Facial Souffle Moisturizer. It's whipped and fluffy, and despite how nervous I was to smear a coconut-oil based moisturizer on my face before applying makeup, I can tell you it's not greasy in the slightest! I haven't stopped using this since I received it, both day and night! It's become a fast favorite.
I really have enjoyed using all of these skincare items, and I'd definitely recommend giving them a try to if you have dry or combo skin that needs an extra boost of moisture. Find Yes To products at Target and online at yestocarrots.com.
Have you tried any of these products? Let me know!
