Funshine State Saturday

I love my outfits most on days I have off of work. I woke up super early today (6:30am!) and I set out to capture the sunrise with my canon. Later, I spent the beautiful afternoon with friends and conned one of them, my former personal photographer, to snap some pics for my post today.

My favorite thing about this dress are the bubble sleeves. They actually extend all the way down to an elastic wrist but I pulled them up to my elbow for the day. I accessorized with my purple nine west leather purse, various bracelets, my long owl necklace and several silver rings.

I always feel better when someone else takes the pics for me. Not only do I feel less like a lame-ass but I get to play around a bit more.

While out and about, I had to pick up some of my absolute must-have beauty products that I had run out of. (I hate when I run out of a crap-load my products all at once.)

  • ic inner cellular hair polish
  • Garnier Sleak and Shine Anti-Humidity smoothing milk
  • new toothbrush
  • new loufa
  • yes to Cucumber soothing makeup remover wipes
  • Apricot Scrub (just as good as the St Ives equivalent)
  • Neutrogena pink grapefruit Body Clear Body Wash
  • Rimmel white eye shadow

GK Favs :: YesTo Cucumber Facial Wipes

I’ve recently discovered and become a fan of the YesTo line of organic beauty prodcuts. In a recent post (YesTo :: April 9, 2012), I discussed my satisfaction with both the  YesTo Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask  and the  YesTo Carrots Daily Cream Facial Cleanser. So, on Sunday, when I picked up a few new supplies, I decided to also try YesTo Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergentic Facial Wipes. 

I. Love.

These are absolutely PERFECT for my sensitive skin! I bought the 10pk to try them out but will definitely be using these much more. AND they’re only $2.99! (Online and at my local Walgreen’s).

As previously posted (Fav Skin Products :: April 3, 2012), I usually use Neutrogena’s Fresh Foaming Cleanser at night, before bed but sometimes I’m a little too exhausted from a long day (or otherwise working with less than 100% accurate control of my motor functions and/or common sense) to wash my face before crashing out. It is during these times (dawn) when I have previous relied upon Neutrogena’s Cleansing Facial Wipes for removing the makeup thats already began running its own course down my face. However, I do believe these YesTo Cucumber wipes have just officialy replaced the Neutrogena wipes for me…

Yep… I LOVE these things!

The Neutrogena wipes remove the makeup and are still gentle on my skin, however, they always leave my face feeling… heavy?… I don’t want to say “greasy”, because that’s not it but they did have their own sort of residue left behind. These YesTo Cucumber wipes remove all the grime and my skin feels cool and refreshed.

Every YesTo product I’ve tried so far has left me completely satisfied. I will most definitely be trying more YesTo products and will continue to let you know how much I love them.

Thanks for reading.

Yes to

Recently, I stumbled upon some pretty pretty awesome new products. I picked up two products from the Yes To line.

Yes to Carrots Daily Cream Facial Cleanser – no complaints. I’ll have to use this a bit longer to really form an accurate opinion of it.

I also bought the Yes to Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask – I loved how my face felt after using this!

The package explains a lot of the benefits of each of these products, which is what really gave me the confidence to try them out. I did some research on their other products on their website and read about their organic ingredients and practices. There’s several Yes To lines of products, each targeting specific skin types and their common problems with a natural solution.

So far, I’ve experienced good results with the Yes to Carrots Daily Cream Cleanser and the Yes to Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask. I’d love to try some of the other Yes to products. My final conclusion (so far)? I would definitely buy the Cucumber Facial Mask again and I would definitely consider buying the Yes to Carrots Cleanser. I would also suggest that others give some of these organic products a try.
