Yes To Carrots - My (bad) Experience

Hey Everyone.

 Here's my recap of what I experienced while using the Yes To Carrots Happy Face set. I used all 3 products so I can't pinpoint which it was that I had a reaction to. (perhaps it's the same ingredient in all 3?) I love the packaging of these, in particular the pots (they look much nicer in person!) They look simple, elegant, clean/fresh. But guess what? They've since changed the packaging - why; I do not know. It's the complete opposite to this, more colour and text on the tubs - it almost looks more like medicine :( Why why why!! Anyway, moving on!

 L-R Mask, Face Wash, Moisturiser.

On day one I used the wash and moisturiser. On day 2 I used the wash, mask and moisturiser. I noticed little bumps on my forehead and chin. I thought perhaps it was my diet or something as I have never had a reaction to a face product before - and also thought there was no way it could be these products as they claim to be gentle, natural and organic. 

I used the wash and moisturiser the next day and for sure I knew it was a reaction to these products. My face was red, itchy, the little bumps were hot and quite sensitive. I took a break for the next day but it was too late, the damage had been done. The bumps were really sensitive and now my skin was starting to flake. Sorry for the gross-ness but we're all human ya!!?

 (The bumps are in the middle just above my eyebrows - camera didn't pick up on it too well)

Lovely eh? I was quite disappointed with all of this. When it comes to skin products I love to use natural ingredients rather that chemically/industrial produced ingredients that claim to do all sorts. I have heard great things about this range but unfortunately the Carrots line has let me down. Perhaps the company are right and the cucumber line would suit me better - even though I have normal skin. I would be curious to try more out to be honest!! A bit nervous but at the same time I think curiosity will get the better of me!! I know many of you might be thinking, "you're mad, and in fact in the video I think I said "not a hope in hell", but the more I think about it the more I want to see if I have a reaction to the other ones. What do you lot think? Have you tried this brand or any of the other ones?
