Yes To Grapefruit Even Tone Moisturizer and Yes To Tomatoes Roller Ball Spot Stick
What is your post-summer skin woe?
"At the end of the summer, my skin is totally cranky from months of city heat, humidity, sweat, and grime (would it be wrong to say that I'm totally excited for fall by the beginning of August?). My skin is usually pretty cooperative, but it's definitely breakout-prone in the summer months, so when the temps heat up, I always swap out my skin-care routine for products that are super-light and won't make my skin feel suffocated."
What do you love about these products?
"This summer, I've really gotten into products from the Yes To line. I love that all of their products are paraben-free and all natural. Two of the products that have really stood out to me are this moisturizer and spot stick. The moisturizer is so crazy-light that it completely and totally absorbs with no greasiness, yet it's still nourishing. I love that I can apply it and start on my makeup right after, without worrying that it's all just going to slide off."
How do the products feel? Are they easy to use?
"The spot stick has been my savior for end-of-summer breakouts — the roller ball is so satisfying to apply! The metal is cooling, and it delivers just the right amount of clear, non-sticky treatment. I basically roll it all over my face in the evening, and in the morning, wake up to totally clear skin. No joke. You can also carry the stick with you to apply during the day. Since the formula is clear, you can roll on a bit, let it dry, and apply a tiny bit of concealer over it. It's great in a pinch!"
