The major factor that discontinued my use was that it contains Retinyl Palmitate, which is a vitamin A derivative. It's great for preventing premature aging, hyper pigmentation, acne, acne scars, and has various other benefits. However, vitamin A derivitives such as retinol, retinoids, and retinyls are not meant for daytime use. They make the skin very sensitive to the sun and actually increase the chances of developing cancer tremendously. That is why most antiaging and acne products that contain these ingredients stress to only use them during the night.
So it is very surprising that Yes To made a sunscreen under the Yes To Carrots line since carrots naturally contain vitamin A. The sunscreen idea could have been implemented in the other Yes To lines like the blueberries and cucumbers and it would have been great and safe.
This is not recommended at all, and I actually ended up returning it because I wouldn't want to give someone else the product not because the product itself is awful, but because of the overall health concerns associated with the ingredients.
Cons: It's easy to use too much, if you use the entire amount in one "pump". You will feel like you are wearing a coating of shortening. Start with a SMALL amount and add more if needed. Even after waiting 5-10 minutes and then applying mineral powder makeup, I felt the moisturizer stayed on top of my skin instead of absorbing in, which made my makeup brush on too thickly in some areas.
Overall: If you like feeling that your skin has a protective layer and don't mind the slightly-coated feeling, this is a great natural product at a very reasonable price. Might be better for non-powder-makeup wearers. If, like me, you prefer to feel that your skin is "naked", you might want to try Juice Beauty products.
I use this as a daily moisturizer if I am going to go outside at all. But if I'm going to spend a whole day outside in the sun, this wouldn't be enough. you'd probably want to add an spf 30 to forehead, nose, cheek apples, chin and ears.
i can even use this around my delicate eye area and my skin always looks and feels healthy and comfortable.
i can't even use the Eucerin for sensitive skin because it dries out my face and irritates skin badly around my eyes.
Yes to Carrots is an awesome product.

The feel of the lotion is very much like sunscreen, application can be difficult as well. Absorbing into the skin wasn't all that great in my opinion, but hey I like the bottle. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Krysten

This moisturizer was okay, but a litte sticky and I found the scent to be a bit sour and off-putting. Liked the ingredients list....will probably try one of their other formulas.Published 7 months ago by Emily Murphy
