Hello my darlings!
I know I’ve been absent for a bit, but this flu season has struck me with a vengeance so it’s been hard to keep up with my beauty blogging duties. I’m back to 100% now, so expect an onslaught of posts in the coming weeks as I get caught up on the pile of products that has taken over an entire corner of my already teeny apartment. Up first, however, is the matter of my favorite products for the month of January. A few of these will come as no surprise to you as I’ve been raving about them incessantly (L’oreal Total Repair 5, perhaps?), so check out the video below and see what made the cut!

I’ve been a fan of the Yes To line since I was gifted several of their products at a Beautylish event a few years back, so I’m always eager to try their new stuff. I’m usually pretty up to date on what’s going on with the line but for some reason missed this, so when I spotted the new display at Walgreen’s the other night I was super excited. And by excited, I mean squealing as my boyfriend stood by with a confused look on his face excited. Men, they just don’t get it.
Naturally I tore into these the second I walked through the door because I like to wash my face as soon as I get home in the evening. As my obsession with makeup has grown it’s become my favorite part of the day as I love the fresh feeling I get after washing off all the foundation, bronzer and eyeliner that make me look so nice and perky at 8am. Over the past few years I’ve mastered my cleansing routine, of which facial towelettes have become an important component given they are the best way to remove impurities before slathering my anti-aging products. It’s turned me into somewhat of a face wipe connoisseur and in my professional, face wipe connoisseur opinion I have to say these are pretty darn good. I may even go so far as to say they are superior to anything else I’ve used, Yes To or otherwise.
When I first opened the package, the fresh grapefruit scent hit me right away. It was so inviting it actually made me thirsty for grapefruit juice; good thing I had some in the fridge or I would have been making a late-night trip to Safeway. Once I got past the tasty smell, the next thing I noticed is how large the wipes are – nearly twice the size of other towelettes I’ve used in the past, including the Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes I love so much. They’re so large in fact it only takes one clean my whole face and neck, including eye-makeup. The thing that impressed me the most however is the quality and texture of the cloth used to make these wipes. They’re super soft, yet super strong and the texture exfoliates as it removes dirt and makeup.
Honestly the only complaint I can think of is the package only contains 25 wipes as opposed to the 30 I’m used to. It just seems like an odd number – 30 is perfect because it’s a month’s supply exactly. Honestly though, for the price ($5.99) it still seems reasonable given the quality of the product.
All-in-all I’m very impressed with these wipes. They’re heavy duty enough to remove foundation and waterproof eye-makeup and leave my skin feeling fresh and exfoliated. It definitely makes me excited to try the rest of the Yes to Grapefruit line, which I’ll be sure to do as my Yes to Blueberries stuff runs out.
Final Verdict: Love it!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting a rep for this company at the Beautylish.com event I attended and she was nice enough to send me some Yes to Carrots lip products. And I’m completely hooked. From silky smooth tinted lip balm to gleaming lipglosses, this all organic, affordably priced line is amazing! See my review as well as some product swatches below.
