Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Frothe Mousse Mask Energizing Coffee Latte with Coconut Milk
Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Frothe Mousse Mask Energizing Coffee Latte with Coconut Milk has a name that sounds good enough to drink, but this mask is strictly for topical use. As it turns out, this frothy-light mask is a decent option for normal to dry or combination skin.
Packaged in a soft, squeezable plastic pouch, Yes To claims you get up to 12 uses from the contents. Based on our experience, this is accurate; in fact, spread thinly, you can easily get several more applications, plus the pouch’s “spout” has a replaceable cap so the mask won’t dry out.
In use, the mask’s whipped mousse texture (which is thicker than what’s typical for a mousse) is easy to spread over skin. Even better, it’s easy to rinse, although you’ll need to use your hands in circular motions to aid the process rather than just splashing your face.
After rinsing, skin is left feeling “plush” and very soft, thanks to the conditioning nature of ingredients like caprylic/capric triglyceride and glycerin. These are balanced, so to speak, by absorbent clays kaolin and Illite, so you’ll get some shine control, too, yet skin isn’t left feeling dried out.
The only concern is that this is a fairly fragrant formula, and the fragrance lingers on skin even after rinsing. In essence, skin risks being irritated while this is on and the impact continues after it’s washed off. How disappointing!
What of the coconut and coffee ingredients? They’re here in low amounts, but even low amounts can still deliver some replenishing and antioxidant benefits. Still, the benefits from these ingredients are greater if left on skin for a prolonged period.

Yes To At-A-Glance
How this Israel-based brand of skin-care products came to be so widely distributed is an impressive marketing feat. Its sold in over a dozen countries and weve seen it locally in such diverse places as Safeway (a grocery store) and Ulta (a salon/spa/cosmetics boutique). Business is booming in the natural products market, and it appears that the Yes To brand is on its way to being one of the frontrunners! Yes To products were even featured on the popular daytime talk show The View. Clearly, this line has attracted the attention both of consumers and the media.
Why all the fuss? Well do our best to explain, but the simple reality is that the success of this brand is due to the fact that lots of consumers want natural products, regardless of whether or not the formula is beneficial for skin. Many women (but not those who read our reviews) are completely unaware that many of the products from the so-called natural product lines contain just as many synthetic ingredients as unnatural brands. Thats no longer the case with Yes To products, but not too long ago, it was!
The Yes To brand is divided into multiple sub-brands. To name a few: Yes To Carrots, Yes To Cucumbers, Yes To Tomatoes, Yes To Grapefruit, Yes to Coconut and Yes To Blueberries. The original launch and the largest group is Yes To Carrots. After the carrot-containing products became a hit, the company began to assemble a tossed salad of other products, including their Yes To Cucumbers, Yes To Tomatoes, and Yes to Blueberries. What next? Were anticipating Yes To Lettuce and Yes To Blue Cheese Dressing, that way you can make a complete salad!
All kidding aside, Yes To products are worth a look if you prefer mostly natural ingredients, though not every natural ingredient Yes To uses has been proven beneficial for skin, and some are problematic. As with most natural-themed lines, there are a handful of Yes To products to consider. But few of them are state-of-the-art and there are no products to successfully manage acne or blackheads, lighten skin discolorations, or significantly reduce redness
Although it is commendable that Yes To doesnt make over-the-top anti-aging claims, a skin-care line should help take care of skins daily needs, and this lines products are somewhat lacking. All the fruits, vegetables, and any natural ingredient you can name isnt enough to protect skin from the cumulative damage of unprotected sun exposure (the Yes To brand does sell a couple of excellent sunscreens) or to satisfy other skin-care needs. Its a nice idea to think that tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, and blueberries are as good for your skin when applied topically as they are for your health when consumed as part of a healthy diet, but thats simply not the case. Still, if you shop this line carefully youll come away with some workable products that are pleasant to use.
