This is going to be the second time I have written this post. I deleted the first version after deciding I wasn't going to bother with it again plus the fact the bottle in use at the time was looking a little sorry for itself. In my first draft, I had written how well the Yes to Carrots Exfoliating Cleanser cleaned and softened my skin but there wasn't anything overly special about it and my hunt for the perfect face scrub was to continue.
Well I continued and continued and found that all other scrubs were a little too harsh for everyday exfoliating, didn't smell that great, were too expensive for very little in the way of results or just contained nasties that I don't really know much about but hear they are to be avoided (parabens I'm talking bout you!)
It then dawned on me that whilst using this exfoliating cleanser, my skin was great. It was clear and soft with breakouts being a rarity - with this in mind I have purchased my second bottle and haven't looked back.
Retailing at £6.99 it is a great little addition to your beauty shelf and contains nothing but goodness for your skin. It is fragrance free so shouldn't irritate those with sensitive skin and the chunks of exfoliating bamboo are nice and small to clear out all the gunk in your pores.
I use the exfoliator every morning and sometimes in the evening too if I have over done it on the make up or feel my skin is a little more congested than normal. I particularly love using a hot cloth before hand, scrubbing it into my face and neck and swiping the remaining product off again with the cloth that has had a second drenching from the hot tap. This really opens the pores and readies the skin for cleansing not to mention it's sooooo relaxing!
The packaging is pretty simple too, nothing too offensive if you want your bathroom or beauty stash to look sleek and inviting and it is good for the boys too. It is pretty much your bog standard exfoliator with all the junk removed. As I said before, it really is a nothing of nothingness type product but once you are left without it, you realise just how great it is. Sometimes boring is best and in the Yes to Carrots case - this couldn't be more true!
If you love fancy packaging, chunks of gold and a fragrance so decadent you want to bathe in it, then this might not be the product for you, however I whole heartedly would recommend this to anyone who is after a basic that gets the job done with no nasty repercussions from over scrubbing etc. I am definitely going to repurchase this and have every intention to do just that once my current bottle runs out!
Do let me know if you give this product a try and what you think of it!
