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!

Why value organic or natural skincare?
