This cleanser is way too drying for my skin. It's a shame, I had expected this to be pretty good for dry skin, not only because it's a creamy cleanser, but also because Yes To's Nourishing line seems to be geared toward the "dry, flaky and parched" skin crowd. Honestly, I expected something a little better.
Unfortunately, I think the sulfates in this product may be to blame for my issues. Even though it's SLS-free, this product still contains coco-sulfates that can often be drying and irritating to some skin types. I've been trying to give this product the benefit of the doubt by thinking that maybe this wasn't a good cleanser for my skin during the dry winter months, but even though it's now close to 90 degrees and humid (meaning my face is pretty much an oil slick), I'm still getting the same bad results: dry, flaky skin that's red and irritated. Perhaps I'll use this as a body wash, but it's no longer going to come in contact with my face. >_<
On a lighter note, this product isn't a bad one; it has a great smell and some pretty beneficial ingredients. I would recommend it to people with normal to oily skin. continued >>
I use heavy sunblock and heavy face makeup on a regular basis, and this removes the residue wonderfully (I do use makeup remover first). Because I use anti-acne products, using most cleansers dries out my skin. This neither dried out nor moisturized my skin, although skin is so individual and variable I would never claim this would be the case for others. I like the thick, creamy consistency, and a little goes a long way. I don't mind the fragrance, which is strong for a cleanser but not as overpowering as is the norm for some other personal care products. If thick consistency or fragrance isn't your thing, this may not be the product for you. Otherwise, I think it's worth a try.
This cleanser removes make up etc. very well, but it makes me break out! I only use it on my body now. Really love the smell, though!
After an allergic reaction to benzoyl peroxide in a different face wash, I decided to try this because it's gentle, and I love my yes to carrots night cream and have been wanting to try other Yes To products. As a gentle cleanser, I really like this. I was previously (before the allergic reaction) using the Aveeno Moisturizing Face Bar, but it was kind of a pain to use, especially when the bar got really tiny. I think this is great for anyone needing something gentle and not drying. I know other people said this left a film, but I didn't experience that. I thought it left my face moisturized, maybe other people take that as a film because most face washes (like foaming ones) leave you with a "squeaky" clean feel (a feel I also used to love before I started having dry skin), with no trace of oils. Of course, you don't want to have an oily face, but you don't want to strip your skin either, and I thought this cleanser did a good job of balancing that (removing dirt/oils, but not ALL your skin's oils).
Anyway, it isn't for everyone, but I have recently adopted a "gentle/nourishing" approach to my skin care routine, and it has been working out well--the only time I have face problems is when they are of my own doing, like trying to pop a pimple that shouldn't be, or trying to pluck hairs that are barely visible yet, leaving red marks. I use this morning and night, with Clean & Clear dual action face lotion (morning), and the Yes to Carrots Nourishing Night Cream (night, duh), along with the Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment on any pimples.
Oh, and I gave a 4 on packaging quality just because the cap is a bit hard to open sometimes, but other than that I like it and it looks cute in my bathroom. :)
Thanks for reading! I hope this review was helpful. continued >>
This stuff is really bad on my skin; It irritates me like no other.
Everytime I try to use it it justmakes my skin sting and inflamed; The times I've tried to leave it on my skin for more than a few seconds, it's left me with enlarged pores, redness and patchiness. I guess I'll see how it works as a shaving cream but as a cleanser; It's a total waste!
I do have very sensitive skin so I'm sure I'm just an exception but at least this stuff smells amazing. :/
I think it's ok, the smell doesn't really matter to me although it's a little too strong, but whatever. It's a nice creamy consistency and I only need to use a penny-dropped amount. It doesn't feel like it's cleaning my face, and leaves a strong scent behind. I only use it in the shower because it's kind of hard to rub off by the sink because it's kind of oily. It felt like it just sat on my face and did nothing, and left a little residue behind. Hate to waste a great product :(
Not bad, not great either. Hydrating enough, but I didn't see any exraordinary results after using it.
I was looking for a cleanser after running out of my old one and wanted to try something new. I am so glad I found this product because I have combination/dry skin and this totally helps the dryness. I use it morning and night before bed and it is very hydrating. I like the consistency it has-not too thick, but enough so you can actually wash your face clean. I also like the scent it has! I would recommend this to anyone who is in need of a hydrating facial cleanser.
I was having some dry skin (around my nose and eye area) and felt i needed to concentrate on using more hydrating products. I have used a couple of the Yes to products and have been satisfied with them. The cleanser is very creamy and rich but still light. Its a cream cleanser so its almost like putting lotion on my face with out it rubbing in! The smell is a very different smell and at first I thought it smelled weird but the smell is definetly growing on me. Overall my favorite thing about it... it has definetly relieved my dry skin! My face feels hydrated too, which I enjoy and in no way makes me oily.
I love the all of the Yes To products and natural ingredients, so I just had to get this. I have sensitive combination skin (dry cheeks and oily nose,) and I use this for mild acne. This was sooo creamy and velvety :) Also, it made my skin smooth and not too oily. It made my dry cheeks soft and dried my nose. However, I notice if I use it too much, it can make my skin oily. I use this every other day along with the Yes to Cucumbers gentle cleanser. The Yes to Cucumbers is for sensitive skin but it kind of drying and this is kind of oily, so it's the perfect combination to alternate. If you have oily skin, I'd recommend rinsing with warm water so it's not TOTALLY absorbed in your pores, causing them to clog. If you have dry skin, rinse with cold water to lock in it. You can't go wrong with this product :)
