My Latest Obsession: Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream

I've been using different BB creams in place of foundation for a while now, and I really like the end result. So when CC (color correction) creams started showing up all over the place, I wasn't really in a rush to try them out. But after trying out the new Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream, I've totally changed my mind.

The cream is absolutely incredible! Much like the rest of the Yes to... products, their CC cream works wonders and has successfully earned itself a permanent spot in my makeup bag.

Like most of their products, the cream is cruelty-free and is made from 95% natural ingredients, which is always a plus. It's actually the very first natural CC cream on the market! Natural skincare products tend to work better on my crazily sensitive skin, and doesn't even really feel like makeup. I've been applying it instead of foundation (or my coveted BB cream). The formula is very lightweight and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and looking gorgeous.

Here's a quick run-down of the incredible benefits the cream has to offer:

  • Provides instant and natural coverage with natural pigments
  • Helps correct skin tone with its light texture
  • Increases luminosity and radiance with evodia fruit
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Protects with SPF 18 broad spectrum
  • Moisturizes and keeps skin supple and fresh
  • Promotes smoother and softer looking skin with grapefruit

This fabulous cream comes in two colors: light and light-medium. Even though there are only two hues available, they seem to adjust to match your skintone perfectly, so having oodles of shades simply isn't necessary.  The light shade has a little hint of ivory-color, petals, and honey. The light-medium shade has a touch of latte-esque color, caramel, and hazelnut. Both hues result in a flawless finish your skin will love.

Each bottle of CC Cream is $15.99 and can be purchased on the Yes to Carrots site, as well as in select stores.

I was really happy with it, and pretty surprised! When I think of YES products, I don't even expect to see make up on the shelf. I have tried more BB, CC, BRONZING BB, ILLUMINATING BB...you name it! I mixed it together in my hand w/my moisturizer because my skin has been so dry, and it was just gliding along my face, and looked great! I was really surprised because it's such a competitive market, but I liked it a lot more than the $120.00 a bottle ones. It also lasted the entire day, and my face never got shiny and needed blotting or touch ups. I put it on 1st thing in the morning, and my face had a natural, healthy glow all day. Who can ask for more? Not me! This is a keeper!

Glad you like it! I was pleasantly surprised myself! I don't think I've tried a product of theirs that I haven't absolutely LOVED!
