I am very excited about this review. This is my first IMBB sponsored review and loads of hugs to Rati di and Sanjeevji for giving me this opportunity. I don’t think anyone else has come up with this idea except for you guys! IMBB is such a blog that if people visit once, I am sure they would keep coming back to it; I was one of them, much before I started reviewing stuff for IMBB. The product I picked up from the “Sponsored List” was Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Acne Daily Pore Scrub. Genuinely speaking from the “Yes To” brand, Yes To Tomatoes range was the only one I wanted to try and when I saw this product in the list, I was on cloud nine! It is because I have always had a love for tomatoes and this fruit has always given me amazing results. So now, let’s jump to the detailed review of this product.
Rs. 2573 (IMBB allowed me to pay this price because I got an overseas product from an Indian website, but overseas it costs somewhere between $10 to $15).
This acne-fighting scrub is powerful enough to combat blackheads and breakouts, but gentle enough for daily use. Ground mango seeds and bamboo exfoliate skin and help skin turnover a clean, clear surface. The salicylic acid combats acne and blemishes, Tomatoes help unclog pores, and a blend of Ginger Root and Bisabolol helps skin avoid redness.
- 97% Natural.
- Petroleum, SLS, and Paraben Free.
Bisabolol and Ginger: A blend of Ginger Root and Bisabolol, an extract derived from the Candeia tree in the Brazilian rain forest, to help reduce redness faster, soothe irritated skin, and calm inflammation.
Tomatoes contain lycopene, a potent antioxidant found in red fruits and vegetables. Its anti-inflammatory properties help clear excess oil from your hair and face, leaving face feeling soft and balanced.
Salicylic Acid works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents the pores of the skin from getting clogged up and being infected with bacteria. Salicylic acid aids in the process of exfoliation by eliminating surface skin cells and opening up pores, and is also known to break down blackheads, whiteheads, and other types of acne.
My Take on Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Acne Daily Pore Scrub:
I always knew that the most important ingredient of this product “Tomatoes” had always worked wonderfully on my skin and gave me results better than any other fruit. So, I was really excited to try this. I started using it from the day it arrived and I am in love with this product. Actually, I always felt that this product is perfect for me because I love tomato and secondly, I have acne-prone skin and this one has tomatoes and salicylic acid as key ingredients, isn’t that great?
The packaging is pretty cute and attractive and looks great on my bathroom shelf too. It is designed in red colour to depict tomatoes and the rest of it is white. It has a flip open cap and I do not have to put much of a pressure to open and my nails love that! I loved the way they have given the instructions at the back. They have described the ingredients, the product, the way to use, purpose, etc., elaborately.
A day before I started using this product, I had 4 big pimples on my face and for the first time, I was happy that I got them, because I could actually determine whether this product works or not because IMBB had sponsored me this product and I did not want to compromise at any stage. I used it every morning and night as they have mentioned that people with severe blemishes should use it twice a day. This one is paraben and SLS-free, so one more advantage for us. The product is gritty in texture and a little watery in consistency, its of light peachy color. The granules are pretty small and contain mango seeds and tomato particles.
When I saw it for the first time, I had a doubt whether the mild granules would work for my skin because I have always been a lover of harsh face scrubs. The tiny granules did clean my face effectively and I enjoyed massaging my face with it. The fragrance smells typical of tomatoes and that made me feel that yes, the product might be 97% natural as they have mentioned. On the first day itself, my skin was glowing a little and the softness was something that I have not yet got from any other product, seriously! My skin felt baby soft for 4 hours after using this scrub.
This is a very gentle scrub which will not cause any rashes, redness, or any other reaction on the skin. It is perfect for daily use since I know face washes do not deep clean the skin off of dead and dull skin cells every day, and this product will do that, and there would be no clogging of dirt in the pores. I use the Maybelline BB cream and it is a little difficult to blend, but after using this, I immediately apply my BB cream and it blends in easily due to the smooth skin that is left behind. Now, talking about the long-term benefits, as I mentioned that I got 4 big pimples, I wanted to test this one, in around 5 days or so, the pimples had completely dried up and the redness had gone too because of the salicylic acid and I could see the pimple size reducing each day. Also, I had severe blemishes and this product did not help much to fade them away, but I know they will all be gone because in 10 days, they have started fading. I am very happy that IMBB gave me the chance to use this product and I love it!

Will I Repurchase Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Acne Daily Pore Scrub?
I would say that this product has perfectly suited my skin type and I loved the results it gave, but people may get different results depending on how the main ingredients like salicylic acid react on their skin, but it is an amazing product and a must-try for everyone out here whether you have acne or not. Talking about me, I already have told my aunt who resides abroad to get me all the stuff from the Yes To Tomatoes range when she comes here in December. It is completely worth a shot, so go ahead and say a “Yes To Tomatoes.”
