I edited a Glamour Beauty Star story a few months ago that featured Jennifer Connelly, who has three kids that span the ages of two to sixteen years old. She’s so naturally beautiful that she didn’t have a complicated beauty regimen to dish about, but there was one tip that I really appreciated. She likes to keep products in the shower that are good for her and her husband, but also safe for her kids too so she doesn’t have to worry about them using any harsh ingredients. So simple! So obvious! I live in a (chic) shoebox in Manhattan, with one bathroom the four of us. Read: No room to spare on the bathroom shelves. So, I’ve started to look at stocking (at least the kid-reachable shelves) with products that are good for the whole family.
Enter, the new Yes To…Body Wash, that comes in four formulas: Carrots Nourishing (carrot seed oil and honeydew melon), Cucumber Soothing (cukes and green tea), Blueberries Ultra Hydrating (anti-oxidant rich blueberries and shea butter), and Grapefruit Rejuvenating (brightening grapefruit extract, apricot seed powder and apple). I personally love the zesty scent of grapefruit as an energizing wake up call in the morning, but Amelia flipped over the cucumber one. “OMG! It’s so fresh! It’s so different. I could use this one over and over again!” she shrieked like the eight year old that she is. What’s probably so new to her is that most kid body washes have an overly sweet tutti fruity scent or even candy-inspired like bubble gum and cotton candy. This cucumber scent seems like a breath of fresh, clean air compared to those. And now that she’s starting to prefer showers over baths, this makes the daily ritual a treat for her. Phew!
All of Yes To’s formulas are 95% natural, and free of parabens, pertroleum, and SLS.
