These fragranced cleansing cloths are a fairly gentle way to cleanse your skin and remove makeup at home or on the go. Best for normal to dry skin, the antioxidant-rich formula replaces typical cleansing agents with emollient ingredients and plant oil. These do remove makeup, but can leave a bit of a residue you may want to rinse off with water, which defeats the purpose of using cleansing cloths; if you're going to rinse anyway, you may as well use a regular cleanser.

These cloths are not recommended for sensitive skin because they contain fragrance and fragrant plant extracts.

Pros:
  • Gentle yet effective for quick cleansing and makeup removal.
  • Won't leave skin feeling tight.
Cons:
  • May leave a slightly oily residue that requires rinsing with water.
  • Too emollient for those with blemish-prone skin.

Formulated with Blueberries and Coconuts to gently cleanse, remove makeup, and moisturize skin all in one. With Lemon Peel and Apple to help brighten skin, these are a great addition to our Age Refresh collection. They leave your skin feeling clean and glowy!

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.

    • I would not recommend this product... I chose this because I wanted to try makeup wipes for when I'm on the go or traveling back and forth, but this product burned my skin. Perhaps my skin was too dry that day or it is too sensitive, but this product was too much for it to handle. I will try it again later, but I am currently not a fan of this product.
