Review: Yes To Carrots Exfoliating Body Wash & Body Butter

I was gifted these Yes To Carrots products for Chrsitmas from family - an Exfoliating Body Wash and a Super Rich Body Butter.


One of the things I'm really rubbish at remembering to do is exfoliate. I don't know why but there we are! I was pleased to try the Yes To Carrots Exfoliating Body Wash and I have to say I really loved using it. 
The 'grit' in the wash is ground up walnut shells and they provide a really gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin and leaves skin feeling so soft and smooth. 
I've used this up now but I really wish I had taken a photo to show the consistency, it was like using a light lotion which meant it was easy to apply to the skin. Being dispensed from a tube also allowed to me to use the right amount, rather than scooping it from a  pot; I always find I use more than I need if I have to scoop!

The Yes to Carrots Super Rich Body Butter is another really lovely product to use. I would say it was more of a rich cream than a butter as it has a lighter texture than traditional butters. Anyway, I've been using this as part of my night time routine and my skin has been drinking it up and is left feeling very happy.

Both of theses Yes To Carrots products have a deliciously refreshing scent - no over boiled carroty smell but something beautifully light and clean.

I'd not tried anything from the Yes To range before so I was really happy that my family had taken to time to look for something that had fairly clean ingredients. 
I know they use some questionable ingredients which is why I wouldn't personally call them a green brand but they do not use SLS, parabens or petroleum which is important to me as a starting point.

Have you used anything from the Yes To range? Which body exfoliator do you like to use?

  1. These sound lovely. When I was in Colorado I found some Yes To Grapefruit products that I'm loving using at the minute, Grapefruit hasn't come over to the UK yet but I hope it does!

  2. Does it smell like carrots? ;) When I first came to the US I picked up their cucumber shampoo but unfortunately it didn't work so well for me.

    1. Hi Ru, thanks for commenting :)
      I didn't think either of them actually smelled like carrots at all! Just really fresh and light with hints of the shea butter. Sorry that the shampoo didn't work for you - natural shampoos can be so difficult to find :(

    1. I have the hand cream in this range but I have yet to use it. I think I might have to do a hand cream post - I'm using about 4 at the moment! x
