Can you believe that I’ve never tried a CC Cream until now? I never really buy into the hype of things that just sound like a vamped up ‘tinted moisturiser’ but this ‘Yes To’ brand has really caught my eye recently. The Yes To Grapefruit CC Cream* is aimed at uneven skin tones and claims to ‘colour correct and hydrate’ whilst containing 95% of natural ingredients.
First off, I like the packaging. It’s simple and comes with a pump – just how I like it. Just a tad too big to fit in my Muji drawers however… and just a note, beware and wipe the nozzle before you put the cap back on as the lid can become a tad messy, and that just would not look pretty now, would it? The dispenser pumps out a lot of product, so you need around a third of a pump to cover the entire face. The scent is certainly very grapefruit-y, which can be a bit overpowering at first. The product blends in well and balances out the skin to an extent, in the picture above you can still see my natural redness in my cheeks. The shade is a tad light for me at the moment but in the Winter time I feel that it will be perfect. It’s certainly a light coverage base as concealer will be needed for pesky blemishes, but I feel as if you could possibly build this up slightly. The light coverage that I applied lasted for around 4 hours before I began to see any dramatic changes, so if you need something for longer days, this isn’t the one. However, for something light to pop on to run a few errands, it’s perfect.
It’s not the cheapest CC Cream on the market, retailing at £12.99. But if you’re all for natural products then it’s worth a look at. I’ll be looking out for alternatives in Boots so let me know if you have any recommendations. Also have you heard of the ‘Yes To’ brand? What products have you tried? Let me know – thanks for reading.
