Recently, I had the opportunity to try several products from the Yes To line, including:
- Yes To Blueberries Brightening Eye Roller
- Yes To Blueberries Eye Firming Treatment
- Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel
For my full review of all of these products, please keep reading after the break.
1. Yes to Blueberries Brightening Eye Roller
I’ve never used an eye roller, but the concept intrigued me so I was excited to try this one. The package states this product is 99% natural, paraben, petroleum, and SLS-free, which I love because, even though I don’t exclusively use natural cosmetics, I do like them and what they stand for.
Other ingredients include antioxidants from blueberries, which help fight free radical damage; horse chestnut seed extract used to promote circulation and treat dark circles, and bearberry leaf extract, which is a botanical that helps brighten skin.
It took a second for product to get to the surface of the roller, but once it did it glided smoothly and effortlessly around my eye area. I liked the cooling feel of the rollerball, and I saw a noticeable difference in the appearance of my dark circles after a few minutes. I also really liked how I could feel my skin “tightening” after using the rollerball; my eyes looked more awake and refreshed, so I was pretty impressed with this just after the first use.
After One Month
It’s been about a month now, and I am still using the eye roller faithfully. I love what it’s done for my dark circles – other than concealer, I’ve never been able to completely disguise them as well as I have been able to do with this brightening eye roller. I definitely recommend this to anyone who has been struggling with those pesky dark circles – it worked for me, it might work for you too!
2. Yes To Blueberries Eye Firming Treatment
Next up is the Eye Firming Treatment. While I’m still in my mid-20’s, I think now is the perfect time to start using anti-aging skincare products as a preventative measure. This treatment is 95% natural, and is also paraben, petroleum and SLS-free. Other ingredients include antioxidants to fight free radicals; Paracress Flower to help restore skin’s smoothness; Beeswax that acts as an emollient while promoting moisture retention, and Olive Fruit Oil, which is rich in oleic acid to help regenerate skin cells and add moisture.
I cleansed my face first, and then applied a small amount of this product to my eye area. It felt almost instantly moisturized, and I liked that you only needed just a dab to get the job done. The skin around my eyes felt firmer after the first use, too – and I liked how this eye cream didn’t irritate my eyes like some can.
After One Month
Boy, have I noticed a difference! I don’t have deep wrinkles, but I do notice a few fine lines starting to creep up. After using this eye cream regularly, you can barely tell there’s anything there. I hope they never stop making this product, because I will definitely want to have this cream on hand when I hit my 30’s!
3. Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel
Anything that says it has a cooling effect, I want to try – especially since my eyes often get irritated and dry from my constant allergies and sinus issues. This eye gel contains cucumber for rejuvenating and softening skin; spirulina, which is an algae designed to protect skin against irritants; chamomile to soothe tired eyes; green tea for its anti-inflammatory properties, and Dead Sea Minerals to help naturally exfoliate and detoxify the skin.
I tried this after I had… ahem… over-indulged in a few too many cocktails the night before, and I wanted to see if this soothing gel would reduce my puffy eyes and make me look like I wasn’t suffering from a hangover. It did! My eyes felt and looked instantly more alert and awake, even if I didn’t feel that way. Plus, the cooling gel felt really good against my skin.
After One Month
I am still a huge fan of this eye gel, and I like to keep it in the fridge now to maximize the cooling effect. This has now become my go-to product when my eyes need a pick-me-up, and I am just as pleased with the results now as I was upon first use.
I hadn’t had much experience with Yes To products before, but now I am so glad I was able to try these three eye care products. I definitely think they are essential for any woman looking for alert, awake eyes; diminished puffiness and reduced dark circles and fine lines. I wasn’t disappointed with my results at all! You can purchase these products via YesToCarrots.com, or at Target, Ulta, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart and Kroger.
