For Dry Skin Care on a Budget Say Yes To Coconut

Yes To Coconut Is Dry Skin Care On A

Yes To, the brand that brings us nature based beauty introduces specialized care for dry skin. The Yes to Coconut Collection was created to hydrate and restore dry skin and hair while smelling delicious. I received three products from the line to try and share with my gentle readers.

Yes To Coconut For Dry Skin Care At A Budget

Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Melting Cleanser is an Ulta Exclusive. The tagline for this product is, "We'll stop the world and melt with you!" This thick, balmy cleanser has a light, sweet coconut scent and breaks down makeup and cleanses thoroughly without stripping or irritating my dry skin. I remove my eye makeup with my favorite remover then dispense a dollop of the Melting Cleanser into my palm, lightly rub my hands together and massage all over my face, then add a little warm water to transform the balm into a light, creamy emulsion to completely clean then rinse away with a warm face cloth. My skin feels fresh, clean, hydrated and comfortable. I like this cleanser and I will purchase it, when this tube runs out.

Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask. Say "Yes!" to this mask brimming with virgin coconut and avocado oils and soothing, detoxifying natural clay and "Hello!" to soft, moisturized skin. I slather a generous coat of this white, creamy-dreamy concoction all over my face, relax for ten or fifteen minutes while I enjoy the fresh, light coconut scent then rinse it away to reveal a plumped, happy, hydrated complexion. I am impressed as I can be with this lovely mask and yes, I will grab another tube when this one is gone.

Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Overnight Eye Balm. This Ulta exclusive is a triple threat of virgin coconut oil, shea butter and argan oil that combined, deeply hydrate and nourish the delicate skin around my eyes. A little bit of this rich, smooth cream gently tapped in around my peepers temporarily plumps and reduces the appearance of fine lines and aging. I prefer this for night, as it is a little rich for under makeup, for my taste. In my eyes (see what I did, there?) this is another winner for this line and I will treat myself to a new one, once my sample is depleted.

I am enjoying and benefiting from these three skin beautifiers and I want to further explore this line. It is ethical, efficacious, delicious and affordable. Yes to Coconut beauty can be found at Ulta and other retailers that carry the Yes To line. Yes to Coconut products are at least 95% natural, free of parabens, phthalates, SLS, chemical sunscreens (YAY!!!!), and other harsh, potentially harmful ingredients and their packaging is recyclable.

Exuviance Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel

Exuviance Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel-Review and How
//sent for consideration//
Form the originators of the Glycolic Acid Peel comes a next generation in home treatment targeted at anyone who wants increased cell turnover, exfoliation and the benefits of a peel without the irritation or a visit to a doctor's office or spa.

Exuviance Firm-NG6 Non Acid Peel: (from their website)
  • 6% Patented NeoGlucosamine® formulation provides all the benefits of a peel without irritation, it's a neutral, non-acid compound
  • Accelerates cell renewal, improves texture and tone
  • Plumps skin matrix to increase volume and help firm and tighten skin
  • Exfoliates, reduces pigment to brighten skin
  • Expertly formulated by the originators of the first Glycolic Acid peel
  • Leave-on, no-rinse formula, for all skin types
  • 100% agreed product does not burn
Aqua (Water), Acetyl Glucosamine, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Acetyl Tyrosinamide, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Isostearate, Polysorbate 20, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, CI 19140 (Yellow 5), CI 14700 (Red 4).
How does NeoGlucosamine work? By exfoliating it helps build the skin's matrix, to increase volume, smooth and brighten skin tone. NeoGlucosamine delivers an AHA peel result in a neutral, non acid compound.

Exuviance Firm-NG6 Non-Acid

How to Use: Pull the lid off the elegant, double walled jar and with clean fingers, press down evenly on the disk to pull up one to two pumps of the clear gel peel (I use one to one and a half). Spread it across the skin without rubbing then gently tap and pat until absorbed. Allow to sit, undisturbed for five to ten minutes then follow up with the rest of your treatments and moisturizers. Apply at night before bed. This peel feels a little tacky on the surface for a while but that dissipates and the skin feels a little tighter, a bit firmer. Over time, as dead skin cells are sloughed, the skin feels softer and firmer and looks brighter and clearer.

Remember, with increased cell turnover comes skin that is even more vulnerable to UV exposure so don't forget to wear a good sunscreen to protect your fresh, renewed complexion.

While this treatment is designed to work with just about all skin types, as a Dry Skinned American, if I don't apply plenty of Hyaluronic Acid and moisturize as if I'm getting paid to my skin can get extremely dry and flaky. I find, for my skin that stepped up manual exfoliation, along with using this peel and gallons of moisturizer is most effective. Your own routine will vary by your age, skin type and concerns.

I like this treatment. I need to remember to scrub and moisturize like a madwoman but I am noticing smoother, softer skin and increased cell turnover and sloughing of dry, dead cells.

Borghese Fango Purifying Clay Cleanser

//sent for consideration//affiliate//

Borghese Fango Purificante Clay Cleanser is a purifying treat for your complexion. This foaming clay cleanser contains naturally sourced clay, phytic acid, polyphenol-rich plant extracts and antioxidants. Apply to your damp face, add a bit of water, work into a rich foam and enjoy the fresh, softly herbal scent as this cleanser with the power of a mask delivers a pores deep clean and rinses away to reveal refined, smooth, illuminated skin. Avoid the eye area when using this cleanser.

This cleanser is best suited to oily to combo/normal skin types. My very dry skin finds this a bit much, right now. I think that I may like this better in the Summertime when it's humid and my skin is feeling overheated and sweaty.

If you would like to try this cleanser you can find it at Lord & Taylor and the Borghese website.

Have you tried this cleanser? Are you a fan of Fango? Please do tell.
