Anything overly fragranced gives me an insta-headache so I am committed to finding the best fragrance-free beauty products. The chemicals in synthetic fragrances are known to cause some nasty allergic reactions; I’ve even had to change seats on the train to get away from strong perfumes so for me, strong scents are more than an annoyance. I know I’m not alone in the anti-scent camp, and I love the fact that now perennial fave Yes To Carrots is offering a new fragrance-free line.
The collection is made up of five new products to tackle every skincare need. I have always liked their facial towelettes for tired evenings or travel, and the Fragrance Free Gentle Cleansing Wipes, which are packed with vitamin E and carrots and made specifically for drier skin types (like mine), are now living on my dresser. While they’re pricier than baby wipes and you probably won’t waste them on your kids, in a pinch they’re so much better than the old spit-and-rub routine. (Especially if you ask the kids.)
Another standout from the line is the Yes to Carrots Daily Cream Facial Cleanser. I love a creamy cleanser, since my skin is on the drier side. This one cleanses with super-gentle ingredients, like aloe vera, as well as organic carrots, and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft.
Also awesome is the Yes to Carrots Intense Hydration Night Cream, which is as rich as any pricey department store night cream, but at $12.99 is a seriously unbeatable value. Compare that with Kiehl’s which runs around $26, or the higher end brands which can be upwards of $100.
The only thing missing from this awesome new skincare line is a signature scent. And I’m more than ok with that.
