So often I find myself lost in Sephora or Barneys bliss, that I forget you don’t always have to spend a bundle to get great products (I’ve actually been alternating Allure Chanel Deodorant, with deodorants from Nivea’s Men’s line!). I was lucky enough to get the chance to test-out a line of face, body, and hair care products called Yes to Carrots and while I didn’t fall in love with every single one of their products, they had some wonderful (and amazingly inexpensive) finds!
All the Yes to Carrots products are paraben-free, and have Beta Carotene along with 26 minerals from the Dead Sea (this got me excited..anyone who has tried Ahava products knows how great Dead Sea minerals are!), and true to their name, if you check-out the ingredients you’ll find things like carrot juice, pumpkin, carrot seed oil, and sweet potato — so fun!!

Lip balm (this one is brand new) — perfect for a quick pick-me-up because it’s nice and greasy, but it didn’t really penetrate my lips for long-lasting moisture.
Shampoo — great, fresh smell, and for the price it’s way better than your typical Head and Shoulders. Great bottle design that makes the shampoo unlikely to leak.
Conditioner — didn’t leave my hair as smooth as I would have liked, but again for the price it was more than OK and had same wonderful bottle design as shampoo.
Body Mist — LOVED this! This is great to spray on your body or to use as a room/bathroom spray. It has that fresh-out-of-the-shower scent!
Moisturizing Body Scrub — This is perfect for anyone who, like me, loves St. Ives Apricot Scrub, but finds that the texture can be a little too coarse. Again, the smell is so nice and fresh:)
