Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleanser Review

 Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleanser is a "gentle start to your skincare regimen, this creamy cleanser is formulated with apple, which is rich in powerful anti-oxidants and natural alpha hydroxy acids to help refresh and brighten skin, and lemon peel, a naturally derived cleanser to help sweep away dirt and grime and brighten the skin. Mmmm...clean, soft, nice." This cleanse is 95% natural, and paraben, sulfate, and petrolatum free. I won a full sized 4.5 oz (127 g) bottle of the Smoothing Daily Cleanser in a giveaway. This cleanser regularly retails for around $10. Yes to is a cruelty free brand. This cream cleanser is made in America.

 Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleaner comes in a recyclable white squeeze tube with a flip top cap. The Yes to logo, product name, and some blueberries grace the front of the tube. Directions, a description, and information about the Yes to Blueberries line can be found on the back of the tube. The dispenser is really quite narrow, so coupled with the thick, creamy formula, it can be difficult to get a good amount of product out. Aside from that, I have no complaints about the packaging. I like Yes to's packaging style in general.
 Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleanser is a thick, white cream cleanser. Both Dean and I have been using this as a nighttime cleanser for about a month and we've formed the same opinion on it - its nice but it hasn't really benefited either of our complexions. Like most cream cleansers and sulfate free products, Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleanser doesn't lather, instead it thins out when it comes in contact with water, creating a light, milky substance. This cleanser is excellent for removing makeup - I barely need to use eye makeup remover. I find it it a little hard to tell when this cleanser is completely rinsed off. The Smoothing Daily Cleanser leaves my skin feeling very soft and moisturized. Honestly, after using this cream cleanser I don't feel the need to use a moisturizer, I just tap in a little eye cream and head to bed. Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleanser doesn't irritate Dean's sensitive skin, nor does it exacerbate his oiliness. This cleanser would likely be excellent for the dry and aging skin this and all Yes to Blueberries products are intended for. Yes to Blueberries products have an unpleasant scent in my opinion. I believe I previously descried it as a "metallic baby powder". Dean famously described the scent as "smelling like diaper rash."
I like Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleaner. The creamy consistency is quite moisturizing and very effective for removing my makeup at the end of the day. That being said, I don't think I'd repurchase the Smoothing Daily Cleanser, at least not for full price - it just doesn't benefit my skin enough to justify it. If you have dry or mature skin this cleanser is worth checking out. Oily skins may want to avoid the Smoothing Daily Cleanser, it may be too rich for your skin. This is a good product, just not for me.
