I’m saying Yes to Carrots, Tomatoes & Cucumbers!

February 10, 2009By 5 Comments

If you weren’t big on saying “yes” to veggies as a kid, you can surely try to make up for all of those years by incorporating vitamin-packed fruits and veggies into your skincare regimen. You know when you’re feeling sluggish, how a healthy bowl of fruit or salad can give you that boost that your body’s been craving? Well, our skin craves all of those nutritious goodies as well. Yes To Carrots is an amazing line of food-based skincare that is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben free, organic, and affordable. That’s right, I said affordable. You can find these products at your local drugstore.

*Sunny’s picks:

Yes To Carrots – This line is great for people with normal to dry skin. These products are packed with the antioxidant power of beta-carotene.
*Feel the C Pampering Hand and Nail Spa: This is by far, one of the best hand scrubs I have ever tried. It’s made with dead sea salt, carrot juice, carrot seed oil, fig, pomegranate, sweet potato, pumpkin juice… hungry yet? This scrub will make your hands feel soooooo incredibly smooth. And if you’re like me, you will be obsessively caressing your hands all day long. Follow this up with Yes To Carrots Hand & Elbow Moisturizing Cream and you’re golden.

Yes To Carrots has a line of skincare for those with oily to combination skin called Yes To Tomatoes.
*Totally Tranquil Facial Hydrating Lotion: This Facial Lotion makes my face feel fresh and soft. I have the notorious T Zone oil action goin’ on so after washing my face, I always make sure my facial moisturizer isn’t oily or heavy. When I use this lotion on my face (after washing and toning), my skin feels nourished but not weighed down. This lotion contains 26 Minerals from the Dead Sea, tomatoes, rosemary, red pepper (the last two ingredients are powerful anti-oxidants), and a slew of other yummy ingredients.

Yes To Cucumbers is another line of products by Yes To Carrots. These work best for those with normal to sensitive skin.
*Eye Love Cucumber Soothing Eye Gel: I love this eye gel! Love it!!! There’s no more need to slice cucumbers in the name of beauty. Who has time for that anyway? I prefer using this awesome cucumber eye gel which not only contains cucumber but is also made with spirulina (*personal note* I named one of my kitty cats Spirulina), green tea, chamomile, dead sea minerals, spinach, dill, and broccoli. That’s a lot of green goodness! I’m a huge fan of food ingredients in my skincare. Nutrition for your skin can only come from the most wholesome gifts from the earth. This eye gel soothes and tightens the delicate skin under your eyes, helps reduce puffiness and dark circles. This gel is incredibly refreshing, light and cool.

All of these lines are available at Walgreens, Target, Safeway, and amazon.com. For a complete list of stores, visit the Yes To Carrots website.

    Thanks for this lovely tips. My sister had dark circles under her eyes. She used many things, but nothing was working. One day my roommate suggested to use Posh Naturals Cucumber Eye Cream, it seems it’s nice. I told same to my sister, she used Posh Naturals Cucumber Eye Cream and it’s actually worked. Thanks to Posh Naturals Skincare.

    Yes To Carrots is NOT vegan.

    Most of their products contain honey.

    Maybe in 2009 they were vegan, but they are not any more.
