Brand Overview

The Yes To brand sells several masks, and while some are decent options, Miracle Oil Argan Oil Mud Mask, is not one of them. This is among the more lackluster of the company's options and given the number of lackluster masks they sell that's really saying something.

This mask comes in a one-time-use foil package like many sheet masks, though it isn't a sheet mask. Instead, it's a creamy formula that's difficult to squeeze entirely out of the packaging, which makes us wonder why this doesn't come in a tube or other container that's easier to dispense, and also possible to get more than one use out of it.

The cream itself is somewhat thick, yet easy to spread onto your face. Yes To says to leave this on skin for up to 10 minutes and then wipe it off with a damp washcloth. The result is supposed to be softer, hydrated skin but that isn't what you end up getting.

While this mask does contain a number of emollients, there's also a good amount of moisture absorbing clay, so the result is not nearly as hydrating as claimed. If you have dry to very dry skin and are hoping this well help your parched skin, you'll likely find yourself in need of a rich moisturizer afterward.

Another issue is the fragrance. Although it's not present in great amounts (it's the last ingredient on the list), even low amounts of fragrance can irritate skin. That's particularly an issue because you're advised to keep this mask on skin as long as 10 minutes before wiping it off with a damp washcloth (and the thick texture means it takes quite a bit of wiping to completely remove it, a process that can encourage sagging and rubbing at skin isn't great for redness prone skin either).

While Yes To Miracle Oil Argan Oil Mud Mask isn't the worst mask around, it's just not impressive, even with its bargain price taken into consideration. You'll find better options on our list of Best Face Masks.

Pros:
  • Contains a number of beneficial emollients.
Cons:
  • Inefficient packaging that isn't too user-friendly.
  • Not as hydrating as claimed as the clay ingredient absorbs moisture.
  • Contains fragrance, which can irritate skin.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

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.
