Yes To Blueberries Skin Recharging Greek Yogurt & Probiotics DIY Moisturizing Parfait.

Yes To Blueberries is my favorite of the Yes To lines ( flavors?).   When asked  what's a good drugstore/mid level skincare brand,  this is the brand I always mention . I loved, and still do, the Yes To Blueberries Eye Firming Treatment  and their new eye masks are nice too . 

With the new Spring launches ( and there are many from the brand) is Yes To Bluwberries Skin Recharging greek yogurt & probiotics DIY Moisturizing Parfait.

This is a dual chamber product with the yogurt cream moisturizer on one side and the blueberry booster gel on the other. Each come out separately so you can  customize your mix. Kinda cool ,right ?

The cream's ingredients include shea butter, yogurt & jojoba oil while the gel has aloe vera , blueberry juice and chamomile extract.

I've been using 2 pumps creamy side and 1 blueberry. It has medium  moisture , and does need some time to sink in.  It's a nice pick for warmer weather and  works under makeup or at night . This feels a little cooling on and using the  blueberry side alone really makes for a refreshing feel .

Yes To Blueberries Skin Recharging Greek yogurt  & Probiotics DIY Moisturizing Parfait. is sugg. retail $14.99

Omnia Pink Sapphire

The newest Omnia from Bulgari is  pretty in pink, namely Pink Sapphire.

Millenial Pink is the color these days and the fragrance is fronted by three social media stars . But age is a number and fragrance is for everyone.

The pink makes you think candy store but this is  less sweet than I expected. It starts with  tart , dry pomelo , then pink pepper which sticks around  into the drydown along with barely there white florals (frangipani and tiare), pale woods and  musk.  

I usually am not a fan of pink pepper , but here it works well to temper any  sweetness  and it mixes well with the other notes. There is a vanilla note listed  too but  I am not picking much of up.  I get  woods at the drydown   and they ground things well, along with white musk adding a creamy, warm skin feel.  Overall this reads  citrus &  woods/ musk on me.

It is an EDT but has decent lasting power. Not all day but 4-5 hours with medium sillage. 

Full note list:
  • Top - Energizing pink pomelo and spicy pink peppercorn
  • Heart - Exotic frangipani and wild tiare flower
  • Base - Natural wood, white musk and warm vanilla

Bulgari Omnia Pink Sapphire is $ 84 for 2.2 oz EDT at Ulta , Macys, Sephora with a 1.3 oz also at Macys & Sephora for $ 68 .

Yes To Super Eye Masks

My eyes need lots of TLC and I bet yours do too.  While I haven't gotten much onto the face mask trend , I am all for the eye versions.

Yes To has several new ones out to help pop your peepers into shape . Each mask is large , larger than I expected and they cover a bit of your face as well, especially up onto the forehead. So you get some bonus masking. 

These are paper masks that are well saturated with ingredients and liquid.  The Yes To Coconut  is hydrating and firming with coffee extract and coconut oil.   It doesn't feel super moisturizing but just enough and I did feel firming /tightening. 

Then there is Yes To Cucumbers Calming  for soothing and calming with cucumber , aloe  and chamomile extracts. 

Yes To Blueberries ( my fav of the Yes To lines) Skin Recharging mask has Greek yogurt and probiotics along with glycerin  aloe, and the blueberry fruit extract.

All are Leaping Bunny certified , have 95% natural ingredients  and no parabens, sulfates or silicones. They smell pretty great, too. 

Each  single use mask is $2.99  wherever Yes To is sold .

Trying to find things that are relaxing and help settle us for the night is always a good thing. Scentered , maker of lovely fragranced candles has something for that, called Sleep Well . You can experience the scent in both a candle and a balm that comes in an adorbale Insta ready set.

Both  are fragranced with palmarosa, lavender, chamomile and ylang ylang among others. The fragrance is very soothing, soft, gentle and worth a good deep inhale. Ahhhhhh.

So tap on the balm, light the candle and slip on the mask. Breathe deep and work on a good night's rest.
