Today, I will be reviewing “Yes To Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser” in this post. I have heard quite a lot about the “Yes To” brand, they have a variety of different ranges, which are each focused around different fruits. There are six ranges in total, formulated to combat different skin issues. The “Yes To Tomatoes” range is designed specifically for combination and acne-prone skin, which is exactly my skin type. I decided to try the cleanser first, but this range has a number of other products including a scrub, moisturiser, clearing face mask, repair treatment, blemish clearing wipes, a charcoal cleanser, shower gel, and a charcoal mud mask. So, I would say that this is a great pro of this brand as not only does it have a variety of ranges to suit everyone, but there are also a variety of products within each range. There are some great reviews of products from the ‘yes to tomatoes’ range on IMBB, so make sure to check them out! Now, I’m going to jump into a detailed review of this clarifying cleanser.
My Take on Yes To Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser:
I wasn’t a great fan of the packaging of this product, particularly the lid. This is also in part my fault of course, but because the lid doesn’t securely close if you just press down on it, the cleanser leaks everywhere. I have made this mistake several times and as a result, I have wasted a lot of cleanser! So, if you decide to purchase this, remember to shut the lid securely because otherwise you’ll have a lot to clean up!
As for the smell of this product, contradictory to its name, this smells nothing like tomatoes, in my opinion. It has got quite a light scent to it, but it smells pretty artificial to me and I don’t personally like the smell. The product contains 98% natural ingredients, which is great, but it certainly doesn’t smell natural.
One good thing about this cleanser is that a little bit goes a long way. I made the mistake of applying a big drop of cleanser onto my face and because it foams a lot, the cleanser got absolutely everywhere and was difficult to wash off because it got into my ears and even my hair. I’d recommend a pea-sized amount of product for the entire face.
If I’m honest, the foaming property of this cleanser is a little off-putting because it reminds me of the way in which washing liquid foams up. Normally, I’m really against any foaming cleanser because foaming cleansers have a tendency to strip the face of its natural oils and so to compensate for that, the face actually produces more oil which could therefore lead to more breakouts. However, although this foams a lot, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped or dry, so I think it is good for sensitive skin.
In terms of how it fared with my skin, it didn’t cause any issues or aggravate it, so I would definitely agree that it is gentle on sensitive, acne-prone skin, however, it didn’t make much difference to my skin either. I was still getting the occasional breakouts.
Pros of Yes To Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser:
- Doesn’t leave skin feeling stripped or dry.
- Contains 98% natural ingredients.
- Good for sensitive skin.
Cons of Yes To Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser:
- Smells artificial.
- Foams a lot.
- Personally didn’t make much difference to my skin.
Would I Repurchase Yes To Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser?
I was not majorly impressed with this cleanser, but if I’m honest, I normally don’t get on well with gel cleansers anyway. So perhaps my opinion was biased because of this, but this was my own experience with this cleanser and as always, I give my honest thoughts. Give it a try if you like gel cleansers and want something new or otherwise I would definitely recommend other cleansers in the market which are in a similar price range but are so much better. I hope you enjoyed this review and I’ll be back soon with another one!
