Having beautiful, clear skin is what we’re all after, especially in the better weather when makeup feels like way too much effort! So, in preparation for some easing up on bases and concealers, I’ve been turning to Yes to Tomatoes line every few days to keep my skin looking super clear.
The Yes to Tomatoes line is part of the Yes to … brand that feature everything from Carrots to Blueberries. The Tomatoes selection is designed specifically for combination skin, so it’s all about clearing and cleansing skin. Both products I’ve tried also feature charcoal, which I absolutely love for it’s ability to really clear out the skin.
If you find that your skin feels oily and all round a little bit gross by the end of the day, this is the cleanser for you! First off, it smells divine! It’s a cleanser and an exfoliator in one, so it really cuts down on my bathroom clutter. The microbeads gently slough skin, whilst the charcoal in the formula gets to work on dirt and blackheads. It means that after using it, my skin feels incredibly soft and clean, without feeling stripped. If my skin is feeling particularly grubby, a squeeze of the cleanser with my Clarisonic works wonders!
Once a week I’ve been using the Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask to really deep-clean my skin and get rid of any impurities. Since I do tend to wear a little makeup every day, it’s important to really make sure that I treat my skin to a good mask, something I tend to do at the weekend. Like the cleanser, the mask smells lovely and fresh, and I just apply to clean damp skin and leave it to get to work for around 10-15 minutes. After removing with a warm damp flannel, the difference in my skin is totally visible. Unlike a lot of the detoxifying masks I’ve tried, the Yes to Tomatoes Mud Mask doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin, instead it just feels super clean and fresh, like I’ve had a really great facial. If you have delicate or irritated skin, you can also enjoy the mask by just using it on your problem areas. Mid-week I tend to pop a little of the mask on my nose and chin to really prevent blackheads or spots and it works like a dream!
