What’s your largest organ? *insert dirty joke*

The title might give it away, but it’s your skin.

It’s the pretty stuff. The barrier to the harsh outside world. It gives, gives, gives. And we take, take, take.

We want to eat healthy. We want to be fit. We want hearty immune systems.

Well then why would we just slather poisonous chemicals that inebriate our pretty, hard-working skin?

We all want more for our money.

When shopping, it’s easy to look at the price or (smartly) the unit price, and opt for the store brand or $1 products. Don’t do it! Some name brand products go a loooooooooong way over the cheaply made, and cheaply sold common goods.

Yes to natural and organic beauty and skin care and Yes To Carrots

three green and white packages. one reads, "Yes To Cucumbers Soothing hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes (30 Towelettes)." the middle one reads, "Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Daily Calming Moisturizer (50ml - 1.7 fl. oz.)." the third reads, "Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel (30ml - 1.01 fl. oz.)."

This Yes To Cucumbers regimen is $11 off in the “online exclusives.” (Read on for a 35% discount, too.) Cucumber, green tea, broccoli and spinach are key ingredients. (photo compliments of YesToCarrots.com)

I wanted an affordable natural or organic skin care product with a label that I could read (ya know, with truly natural ingredients). So I went on a journey.

I finally found Yes To Carrots. It boasts wholesome ingredients, and rivals the price of mainstream brands. Plus, you can save 35% on all Yes To online purchases.*

Yes To Carrots Nourishing Exfoliating Cleanser’s bottle says that it’s composed of 95% natural product.

The ingredients label lists water, dead sea water, carrot juice, avocado oil, jojoba oil, aloe leaf gel, zinc oxide, apricot seed powder, beeswax, chamomile, pumpkin juice, sweet potato extract, melon extract, orange fruit extract, honey extract, silt, algae extracts, fragrance, carrot seed oil, vitamin E, lactic acid, and pomegranate peel extract as 22 of its 29 ingredients.

Wow.

An ingredients label I can read!
