What a wild week it has been!
If you have been reading my blog long enough you will know I am a big fan of brands and products that are grounded in production that honours the Earth and aims to make a difference in the world. You can imagine how excited I was to get a little package from Yes To skincare this week (amidst the intensity of a postgraduate conference and lots of changing the world kind of meetings). I was so sad I couldn't make it to the launch lunch on Wednesday but was excited to learn more about this company that endeavors to say "yes to the environment and their customers".
Yes To was founded in 2007 by Lance Kalish and Ido Leffler after their journey to a healthier life lead them to make changes in their diet and lifestyles. As every one who is trying to clean up their environmental impact and live a toxin free life finds, they couldn't believe how much natural skincare costs! So, armed with ambitions of creating an affordable skincare line that was made from organic fruits, vegetables and clean ingredients (no nasty paragons, petroleum, SLS or phthalates) the duo created Yes To. The organic skincare brand is now sold in 28,000 stores world wide across 29 countries.
Yes To offers 70 different skincare products and centers around four main ingredients that form the four basic ranges: Carrots (to nourish), Blueberries (to refresh), Cucumbers (to sooth) and Tomatoes (for clear skin).
I've been trying out the Yes To Carrots range over the last few days (cleanser, moisturizer and body butter) and I am a big fan! Super smooth and creamy... I can actually feel my skin saying THANK YOU! I'm one of those annoying people that generally has really clear skin but in winter time I need to seriously hydrate my skin. After the most intense academic week of my life this range has fed my tired and weary skin. AND the three products I have been using range from $19.99 to $29.99. The Yes To Carrots range gets my seal of approval!
Yes To skincare will be available exclusively at Countdown Supermarkets across New Zealand from October.
You can also purchase the range at the Yes To online store and check them out on Facebook / Twitter.
