True to its name, this is indeed a fragrance-free cleanser, and it's a very good one for those with normal to dry skin not prone to breakouts and/or for those who prefer a more emollient cleansing formula.

Despite the extra-rich feel on your skin, Fragrance Free Daily Cream Facial Cleanser rinses easily (you won't find a washcloth necessary). It contains a simple mix of emollients as well as mild cleansing agents, a combination that works well to remove most types of makeup.

It does contain a small amount of potentially irritating carrot seed oil, but that shouldn't be a problem for most due both to the small amount and to the fact that it's rinsed from the skin.

If you are a fan of cream-based cleansers, Fragrance Free Daily Cream Facial Cleanser is absolutely worth considering, and the price makes it a beauty bargain!

Pros:
  • Contains a dry skin–friendly blend of moisturizing ingredients and mild cleansing agents.
  • Fragrance free.
  • Rinses easily from the skin.
Cons:
  • Contains a small amount of the potentially irritating carrot seed oil.

This facial cleanser is truly the cream of the crop! The NEW Yes to Carrots Fragrance Free Daily Cream Facial Cleanser, is everything that dry (but sensitive) skin ever dreamed of.

Water, Glycerin, Disodium Cocoamphodipropionate, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Potassium Sorbate.

How this Israel-based brand of skin-care products came to be so widely distributed is an impressive marketing feat. It’s sold in over a dozen countries and we’ve seen it locally in such diverse places as Safeway (a grocery store) and Ulta (a salon/spa/cosmetics boutique). Business is booming in the natural products market, and it appears that the Yes To brand is on its way to being one of the frontrunners! Yes To products were even featured on the popular daytime talk show The View. Clearly, this line has attracted the attention both of consumers and the media.

Why all the fuss? We’ll do our best to explain, but the simple reality is that the success of this brand is due to the fact that lots of consumers want natural products, regardless of whether or not the formula is beneficial for skin. Many women (but not those who read our reviews) are completely unaware that many of the products from the so-called “natural” product lines contain just as many synthetic ingredients as “unnatural” brands. That’s no longer the case with Yes To products, but not too long ago, it was!

The Yes To brand is divided into four sub-brands: Yes To Carrots, Yes To Cucumbers, Yes To Tomatoes and Yes To Blueberries. The original launch and the largest group is Yes To Carrots. After the carrot-containing products became a hit, the company began to assemble a tossed salad of other products, including their Yes To Cucumbers, Yes To Tomatoes, and Yes to Blueberries. What next? We’re anticipating Yes To Lettuce and Yes To Blue Cheese Dressing, that way you can make a complete salad!

All kidding aside, Yes To products are worth a look if you prefer mostly natural ingredients, though not every natural ingredient Yes To uses has been proven beneficial for skin, and some are problematic. As with most natural-themed lines, there are a handful of Yes To products to consider. But few of them are state-of-the-art and there are no products to successfully manage acne or blackheads, lighten skin discolorations, or significantly reduce redness

Although it is commendable that Yes To doesn’t make over-the-top anti-aging claims, a skin-care line should help take care of skin’s daily needs, and this line’s products are somewhat lacking. All the fruits, vegetables, and any natural ingredient you can name isn’t enough to protect skin from the cumulative damage of unprotected sun exposure (the Yes To brand does sell a couple of excellent sunscreens) or to satisfy other skin-care needs. It’s a nice idea to think that tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, and blueberries are as good for your skin when applied topically as they are for your health when consumed as part of a healthy diet, but that’s simply not the case. Still, if you shop this line carefully you’ll come away with some workable products that are pleasant to use.

    Don't Get it in Your Eyes!
    • This cleanser is amazing and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple, but if I happen to get any in my eyes, a really uncomfortable stinging sensation occurs.

    Love this cleanser!
    • Absolutely adore this cleanser. It's gentle and leaves my dry skin feeling clean and refreshed, but not tight. I don't wear makeup so I can't speak to its efficacy at removing makeup. This cleanser doesn't foam (which is fine by me, foaming is usually just for aesthetics anyway) and rinses easily. Plus, it's about as cheap as good cleansers go.
