BRING BACK OLD FORMULA
The old formula was the first yes to product I used and I loved it. Now with the new formula, I have black heads, clogged poors, dried out skin. PLEASE BRING IT BACK.

I'm begging you, re-release the old formula. This new stuff is awful.
I just reviewed this product in September, but I have to post again! I am relieved to see that others have responded to this new cleanser formula.
Like I always have, I bought a new bottle of the Yes to Carrots facial exfoliating cleanser when my old bottle was getting low.
But this new stuff is not the same! IT'S DISGUSTING! I resorted to washing my face with soap to get the oily, water-proof film of grease off of my face and hands. It's repulsive.
Guests, if you're new to Yes to, please don't make any judgement based on this yucky "cleanser." I've never before had a Yes To product that was less than exceptional.
Forgive the company, and please provide feedback so they'll bring back the amazing exfoliating cleanser I'm used to!

I have been reading great reviews on the "Yes To Carrots" products. I was in need of a new exfoliating cleanser and having sensitive skin, I decided to try this one.
The smell was not at all pleasing but I continued to follow the instructions and lathered it on my face for at least 1 minute. Then came the worse part, I could not rinse it off. I had a oil like film on my face and the only way I could remove this was to wash my face 2x with soap. After the process was over, my face felt so dry. Next day I decided to try it in the shower, but experienced the same issues. Just bought this and have to throw it out. Will not be trying another "Yes To Carrots" product.

New formula is HORRENDOUS
This product was my lifeline for clear skin. Despite a pretty rough history with acne and rosacea, it always kept my face smooth and clear. I loved the fact it didn't have an overpowering scent and a I liked the thicker, smoother consistency. It contained zinc oxide was also a huge plus in my book, as ZnO tends keep my acne at bay.
I recommended this product to my friend who has suffered with acne similar to mine when she mentioned she was looking for a new cleanser. She used it for a few days and told me it made her acne worse. I was totally shocked, because it had always done nothing but help me.
After my 6-month stockpile ran out, I picked up another bottle. When I squirted it out, I knew right away that something was wrong. I looked at the back and noticed the ingredients had changed. No more zinc oxide, and it was missing a lot of its other original ingredients. The smell was also horrible. Hoping that despite these changes I would still see the same results, I stuck with it for about a week.
Bad move. I broke out again - worse than I have in years. Right after using the product my face had a weird filmy feeling. The new formula is no longer creamy, but more runny and gritty. No longer white, but tan. It's a completely different product altogether than the miracle I've been using since last year.
Yes to Carrots - PLEASE go back to the old formula. It was the only thing that worked for me!

NEW FORMULA IS NO GOOD! VERY DISAPPOINTED!
I've been using this cleanser for several months and have been pretty satisfied with it. Well, I recently purchased a new tube last week and used it last night and it was HORRIBLE! It felt greasy and is if I was mixing oil with water on my face! It was not cleansing anything and did not remove one speck of makeup, which the old formula would. The smell was way to strong and offensive! I had to get a wet wash cloth to scrub my face to do the job that this cleanser was supposed to do. Then afterwards, I could smell all the fragrance left on my face and hands. I tried washing my hands and the soap would not even make suds! I tried rinsing my face over and over to remove the smell, which was giving me a headache! I then compared the ingredients from the old tube to the new one and could see it was completely different. The new one didn't even mention carrots as much as the old one - not sure if it even mentioned it once - I could not concentrate because of the horrible, over-bearing fragrance. I don't know why this formula changed, but I am VERY DISAPPOINTED! I am hoping I can get my money back! I DO NOT recommend this product to anyone! The good comments are probably related to the old formula, so don't let those deceive you! Now back the drawing board on finding a new, safe cleanser...

Old Formula=Fantastic, New Formula=Just Terrible
I'd been using this product on my super sensitive, prone-to-perioral dermatitis skin for several years and it's wonderful stuff. I'd even started my 12 yr old daughter on this for her new skin-care regimen. I bought the new formula and my daughter and I instantly disliked it. The fragrance is too strong and lingers long after washing off- which may be the problem since the texture is oddly thin yet becomes oily when mixed with water. It doesn't rinse off well and leaves a greasy film behind (along with the offensive fragrance). I was rewarded with a nasty break-out for my efforts. The store accepted the two tubes I had purchased and I was able to find the last two tubes of the old formula at another store. Bring the old formula back, please!

New Formula is Disappointing
I have the same complaints as the last two reviews. I had the exfoliating cleanser over the summer and LOVED it. Gentle, but effective and always left my face feeling fresh, clean and clear. Just got a new bottle and am incredibly disappointed. It smells like baby oil and feels like it too - as soon as you splash water to "wash off" the cleanser, it converts from the foaming cleanser to a layer of oil that just doesn't go away.
I'm so sad about this and will be returning my product.

Do Not Like New Formula
I just bought my second bottle of the exfoliating cleanser and I was very displeased with the new formula. It seems to be runnier and doesn't feel like it cleans my face the same way it used to. Another turn off is the new scent is much too strong, like a strong perfume. I plan to return it to the store. It's too bad because I thought the "Yes to Carrots Exfoliating Cleanser" was my new go-to face wash.

New Formula is TERRIBLE
The new formula for the Exfoliating Cleanser is just terrible. It leaves a greasy film on the skin instead of washing clean, it clogs my pores rather than clearing them (as a good exfoliator should), and the new fragrance is strong and chemical, much like a perfume. I actually developed DRY PATCHES for the first time in years after using the product for only one week. A second bottle, sadly, produced the same results. I am truly shocked by the change as it is so drastic and irredeemable. It's like washing your face with a perfumed foot cream that dehydrates.
This is such a shame, since the OLD formula was so wonderful. My skin loved its gentle exfoliation, fresh scent, and easy-absorption. If only I had written a positive review sooner, perhaps it wouldn't have been "updated" (ruined).

An effective yet gentle cleanser!
I have been using this cleanser for 1 year, and still can not believe how wonderful this product works on my skin. Prior to using Yes To Carrots, I was using a prescription cleanser that literally bleached everything it touched. When my boyfriend pointed out that that can't be good for my skin, I began my hunt for a more natural product, and was thrilled when I found this one. Your skin feels smooth and clean after each use, and breakouts are rare! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, especially those who think there acne is so bad that they need a prescription product.

Not gritty enough for me...
I don't feel like my face is being exfoliated. When i use this, i usually add another product to obtain the grit that i need. It has a nice scent, but just isn't for me.
October 2, 2012
I can't imagine switching to any other facial cleanser ever.
Gets a 4 out of 5 ONLY because I want a little more exfoliation.
But otherwise, it's gentle, non-greasy, moisturizing. My face feels clean, soft and healthy after use.
The scent is light and different, but quite nice. To compensate for the gentle (in my opinion a little too gentle, but I guess that's what makes it a DAILY exfoliating cleanser) exfoliating aspect, I add just a tiny bit of raw sugar to the dollop of cleanser in my hand once or twice a week to vamp it up.

surpasses the deluxe brand I used
WONDERFUL PRODUCT.Better than the very chic beauty brand I used before. This cleanser is gentle, so gentle, yet leaves skin so smooth! Lovely texture and scent is mild.I highly recommend even for mature, dry and sensitive skin.

Not gritty enough for me.
I love the scent of this product. It is not what I imagined an exfoliating cleasner would be, however. I wanted texture, grittiness - so I feel my skin is being exfoliated!

Not harsh on the face
Excellent ingredients, and can also be used on sensitive skin. It exfoliates and is still able to not harm your face

This is by far the best cleanser I have ever used
most exfoliating products irritate my skin, cause it to dry out, and cause a lot of redness, but this is very mosturizing, leaves my skin soft, and doesn't cause any redness. I am so happy that I found this product! it has changed my skin and i am very very satisfied with this product.

In the past, I could never use an exfoliating product because they are too rough on my skin. I can use this product and not worry about that. It is gentle just like it says. I love the smell and the deep clean feeling I get when I've rinsed it off. A little goes a long way.

I bought this the other day, thinking that it was just another cleanser. But, it is amazing, my face feels so soft and clean after using it.

You do not know how badly I wanted this stuff to work. I have been wanting to buy "Yes to" products for a VERY long time. I went out and finally pushed myself to buy this product. I used it and at first, it was fine. About 5 hours later, my cheeks were covered in a light red rash. It's extremely itchy and my skin feels terrible! The next day, the rash was STILL there. There is no way I'm buying/using this product again. I'm very disappointed. I wanted this to work but it just gave me a horrifying rash :(

The best exfoliating cleanser on the market
I have been using this product for over a year now. My face looks younger, wrinkles are smaller and my face feels wonderful. This product is a huge improvement to my skin and keeps me looking younger all the time, which is something every woman is trying to achieve. Simply put my face and I love this cleanser..

Accomplishes what it claims
After I had my baby my skin went CRAZY. It was oily, but it was also dry, I broke out for the first time ever and everything I tried made it either, too oily, too dry, and everything consistently made my breakouts worse. I found this cleanser at Walgreen's and began using it every day. Within just 2 or 3 days I could already tell that my skin had calmed down and was not so irritated. That was about 1 and a half ago and my break out has totally cleared up, my skin is more balanced and I can definitely tell a difference when I run out and don't have some for a few days. Great product. My husband even uses this same cleanser on a daily basis now and this is what I ask for at Christmas!

Great product; love that bamboo is the exfoliant!
I used this for the first time today, and I really love how the finely ground bamboo exfoliates the skin! Great product.

I live for exfoliation. The T area of my face gets flaky and I need to scrub it several times a week. This product leaves my face smooth and clean. It would be impossible for me to pick an absolute favorite yes to... product, but this one comes pretty close.
May 25, 2012
Excellent every day cleanser
Great every day cleanser, exfoliates without drying out the skin. Great for preparing for your moisturizer and makeup routine, and for removing the days impurities and getting ready for bed.

Does not rinse clean
The previous formula was wonderful. Since they changed the formula, however, this product leaves an inch thick waxy residue covering my face. I threw out the rest of the bottle because I couldn't stand it. I can feel it and scrape it off with my fingernail. It's really gross.
May 24, 2012
Good,but not for sensitive skins
I can't deny that's a good product,in fact; but my skin is trily sensitive,and couldn't stand it.

Say YES TO trying this product!
I began using Yes To Carrots after reading about harmful effects of parabens as suggested by my endocrinologist. Yes to Carrots was a product that I could find everywhere so I thought I would give it a try. This was the first product that I used and I was BLOWN AWAY. The first thing is the scent is AMAZING. I love it - it is soft and calming and wonderful to take in while massaging the product onto my skin. The texture is creamy with a little bamboo grit (not too much) for exfoliating. Follow the directions - literally massage this into your skin with fingertips for the full minute. It is likely a mini spa treatment that washes away dirt and makeup and leave my SENSITIVE skin feeling soft and smooth. I am devoted to this product after just 1 month of use. Thank you for this!!

It does what it's suuposed to. I only wish it was a little bit more grainy. Doesnt really seem to remove the spots i need taken care of. MIGHT buy again...

I love the exfloliating cleanser. My face feels fresh,soft and healthy! My skins doesn't feel tight and dry anymore. The cleanser is not harsh and leaves you feeling invigorated. My husband has sensitive skin and he has just started using, so far hes starting to feel softer and smoother skin. Thank you for having such great products!

I like to incorporate different products into my skin regimen, since it doesn't respond well to the same cleanser day-in and day-out. This product was great to break up my routine, UNTIL the formula was changed.
The new formula left my face SO GREASY that I had to scrub it off with the acne scrub, and it was STILL greasy.
I got a free replacement thinking I may have gotten a bad batch, and the replacement was the same.
