'Yes To' Body Wash Grapefruit & Blueberries

On Monday, I decided to have a day of shopping for back to school stationary as the term is fast approaching and I need to start getting organised. I spent far too much money (as usual) and also ended up finding a few little bargains on the Boots clearance shelf including these 'Yes To' products which is a brand that I had heard so much about yet have so little experience with and therefore, I decided to pick some up. After doing some research, I quickly learnt that 'Yes To' is an environmentally friendly brand where none of there products would ever sink below containing 95% natural ingredients and with packaging that is recyclable. Another great fact about this brand is that, just like LUSH, they are cruelty free and swear to never test on animals. This company have the mission to make individuals smile more and to say 'yes' at least once every day however, in some situations they will also say no. The things that result in a definite 'no' is using parabens, phthalates, SLS, silicones, chemical sunscreens and all other potentially harmful ingredients.

'Yes To' have a wide range of products, split into six main categories associated with scents and focusing on different problem areas, making it easy to find out which products would suit your body best. These categories are:

  • Yes To Carrots, specifically for normal-to-dry skin and hair.
  • Yes To Cucumbers, for sensitive skin and normal-to-dry hair.
  • Yes To Tomatoes, advised to individuals with combination and acne-prone skin.
  • Yes To Blueberries which targets fine lines, wrinkles and frizzy hair.
  • Yes To Grapefruit aimed towards uneven skin tones.
  • Yes To Coconut, for dry skin and hair.
The only two products that I managed to pick up were both body washes, something that I am happy to purchase as I know that I will defiantly get round to using. The first being the 'Yes To Grapefruit Rejuvenating Body Wash' which targets all skin types which is suitable for almost anyone, this product includes 98% natural ingredients and was reduced from £7.99 to £4 in the clearance for a 500ml bottle which I think is reasonably prices. I doubt that I would have purchased this product at its full price just to try out but if I fall in love with it then who knows?  This product states that it will give you a fresh cleanse. The aroma of this product isn't too heavy which I love as sometimes, when products are too strong, they can cause you feeling nauseous. It defiantly has a stronger punch of grapefruit which works well to balance out the overall citrus, summer scent. The liquid isn't coloured but is slightly cloudy, as you'd expect from most body washes. My first impressions of this product are really good and I cannot wait to try it out.

Moving on to the other product that I actually managed to pick up the last two bottles of which is the 'Yes To Blueberries Ultra Hydrating Body Wash', suitable for dry skin which I thought was useful as I have a lot of scar tissue on my arms which result in me having extremely dry skin. I thought that this would also be beneficial for after holiday as although I will try not to, there is the chance that my skin could burn. This product includes 95% natural ingredients and was again, reduced from £7.99 to £4. This product has an aim to moisturise and soften skin by using Shea butter within its formula. I found that when first discovering the scent of this product, that it has a mix of lemon and tea-tree oils. The blueberry scent is much more subtle than the main ingredient within the grapefruit wash and I must admit, I couldn't distinguish it at first. Again, this product is clear in colour and I look forward to testing this product out and seeing how much it lathers.

So far, I think that these products could be comparable with LUSH Cosmetic's Shower Gel's as both brands are against animal testing and for those of you who get a headache by just walking past a LUSH store, (I know my mum does) then this brand could be a cheaper and better option for you as the scent is much more subtle which can be nice and refreshing. Out of all of the ranges, I think that the 'Yes To Tomatoes' would be most suitable for my skin tone as I still have quite acne-prone skin and I will defiantly look out for their Charcoal cleanser and mud-mask which I have heard good reviews about, and of course first heard of by Zoe. I am not entirely sure where these body washes are currently available to purchase as I believe that Boots were selling off their stock, maybe for a new product launch, look or maybe these just weren't as popular as hoped.

After finding the time to use both of these products, I am extremely impressed. The scent is much stronger whilst in the shower and they lather up incredibly. I have been using the Grapefruit product a bit more, just because it suits my skin better but I would recommend this brand, especially if you are interested in natural products. I'm not sure if I would repurchase, simply because when it comes to body wash, I always go to my rather embarrassingly large collection of LUSH Cosmetics Shower Gel's. Nonetheless, these products left my skin feeling so hydrated, soft and silky. I will continue to use these products and feedback my thoughts after using them for more than three days. I especially love how within this brand, each scent targets different problem areas.

Have you tried these products? What did you think?
