During my last trip to Singapore, I came upon a counter in Watson’s in Ngee Ann city selling a very interesting brand – Yes to Carrots. I’d never heard of it before and there was a whole skincare and body range made with carrots! Yes, the orange vegetable!
I was actually looking for a day moisturiser and contemplated the Day Moisturiser from this brand because it felt light and absorbed well. Besides it is supposed to be paraben-free. (You can read my previous post on parabens)
Yes to Carrots combines vitamins and beta carotene from carrots and other orange based organic fruits and vegetables with dead sea water which is supposed to be rich in minerals. The formulation is light and they are created to be suitable for sensitive skins.
I wasn’t quite sure though if the range would suit my skin, so the kind sales promoter gave me a bunch of samples to try out before I buy. I thought it was very generous of her!
C Today or C You in the Morning – Day Moisturiser
The name certainly is cute. The texture of this day moisturiser is that of a cream. It feels fairly thick but absorbs well. However, I did not quite like this for the day because I felt it made my face feel oilier throughout the day. Also, the fragrance in the product was quite strong and it was just not very nice overall. I did not finish the sachet at all.
C Through the Night – Night Moisturiser
The night moisturiser on the other hand, is a treat. I really liked it. Although it was thick, it also absorbed well and my skin felt nice and moisturised. There is a fragrance but it was hardly noticable, so faint it was. I liked that and as it spreads well, not much product is needed each time. I can see myself buying this.
C Through the Dry Spell – Deliciously Rich Body Butter
This is a body butter and the fragrance in this one is strong. I’d have preferred if they had kept the fragrance minimal like in the night moisturiser. Performance wise, this body butter is rich and thick and did help moisturise the skin, even if my skin felt a little oily after applying. It takes a while for it to really sink into the skin and I think it would be better for those with really dry skin or living in dry climates.
I’m finishing up my night moisturiser sample and would love to repurchase if I ever go down to Singapore again soon. I do not expect to see this line here in Malaysia because it is in fact, an Israeli brand and the political situation does not allow it. So even if I do get the night cream, restocking would be a problem for me.
Yes to Carrots is getting rave reviews in the USA and is found in the drugstores there. If you are particular about the contents of your skincare, then, you might want to say Yes to Carrots for being paraben free.
