One of the reasons why I wanted to try a beauty advent is to discover new products from brands I’ve never used before – and this is exactly my experience on day eight of my Holland and Barrett 12 Days of Christmas!

I’ve heard great things about the YesTo brand, yet I’ve never actually tried any of their products. All of YesTo’s products are completely free from toxic ingredients and are at least 95% natural. Their ethos is to work hard in providing the best quality products as well as giving a portion of their profits to charity.


Behind door number 8 was the YesTo Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes which are suitable for all skin types. These black wipes, formulated with charcoal, are designed to rid the skin of  impurities and any traces of make-up.

Now i’m not usually a fan of face wipes, as I think skin needs a deep cleanse to remove make-up as opposed to a face wipe, however these are different to anything I’ve used before. They have a lovely fresh scent and aren’t too wet with product. They are incredibly soft and due to the black cloth, I noticed that they actually exfoliated my skin. My face felt very clean after use and didn’t cause any irritation at all. I haven’t actually tried them to remove a full face of make-up as yet, but they did remove my BB cream  and cream blusher easily with no harsh rubbing. I already have a love of charcoal products, and these have certainly exceeded my expectations for a facial wipe, but I probably wouldn’t purchase them myself as it’s not something i’d personally use.


I would say that my first impressions of this particular product, and the brand’s mission means that this definitely won’t be my last time trying YesTo products as i’m very excited to explore the range!

Have you tried any YesTo products in the past? Let me know in the comments below.

You can also catch-up with previous days here  and don’t forget to check back on Monday for another product reveal ❤

Take care,
