This cleanser is better than I'd hoped for.

MY SKIN:
I have very fair, pinky toned combination skin, with large pores on my nose and beside my nose spreading to just the fronts of my cheeks, as well as some up my forehead.
I have a very oily T-zone and sebborheic dermatits between my eyebrows to a mild degree.
I'd taken *terrible* care of my skin for 6 years. I decided to change that this month.
I've just turned 31, am never in the sun, and only have troubles with blackheads and whiteheads, and of course the problems from picking at blackheads (I know, it's bad to do it!).
I rarely get internally caused blemishes during the seasons changing. I have only one fine line area on my forehead, the rest of my face is line-free. My skin is somewhat sensitive, but the only results from that are that I flush easily and can stay red. I used to wash with St. Ives' Naturally Clear Apricot Cleanser.
I do have a large but not extremely noticeable scar crossing my forehead, and one on my eyelid as well from a cat's hind paw claws.

WHY THIS PRODUCT?
I was on the fence between this product, and the Yes to Blueberries cleanser. I went with this one because my t-zone is so oily, even though my cheeks are perfectly balanced skin on their own. I am glad I chose this, I think that the Yes to Blueberries might be for someone with less oily skin than mine, or with more fine lines than mine. But, that's just the impression I get from reading reviews at other sites, which encouraged me to give the Yes to Tomatoes cleanser a try instead.

I was looking for something a little more natural than the St. Ives' products. Avoiding parabens is important in my book.

HOW LONG:
I've been using this product for five days, so not very long, but in the short time I have been using it, the oil production in my t-zone has dropped down considerably. I don't know if that's because of this product, the moisturizer I use now, or both. I changed both on the same day.

HOW I USE IT:
I slightly moisten my face with water, and then using about a quarter-sized amount squirted into my palm, I apply this with two fingers to my face. It's kind of "gloopy" in texture, so it is a little messy, but that's the only very small con/downside. It's not sticky, just not a cream, it's maybe a little thinner than hair gel. It foams slightly when you're rubbing it in, and a little more with my Olay ProX facial brush.
It rinses off easily, and leaves my skin clean and tight feeling, but not parched. After I pat my face dry, and then let it air dry further, I apply Biore's Hard Day's Night moisturizer. I wash once a day with this, when I first get up.

ON EYES;
I do not generally use cleansers on my eyes (I have extremely sensitive eyes), so I can't tell you yet whether or not it burns or irritates my eyes. I think it'd probably get through closed eyelids because it is so foamy. I have used the Olay cleansing cloths on my eye makeup, and I will keep those around for that purpose, when I do happen to wear eye makeup beyond just pencil eyeliner which rubs off in my sleep essentially.

THE SMELL:
It doesn't smell bad, maybe very mildly "medicine" like, but I haven't noticed it since I went out of my way to smell it the first day. I like that, I don't like a lot of perfumes in my products, even the Biore moisturizer is pushing it for me, although it fades and doesn't seem to give me a headache like most perfumed products do. But this product has next to no scent, and that's really nice!

WASHING NOTES:
Your skin is quite smooth after, so when you rinse it, you might feel like there is still product on. I don't think that's actually the case, I think you're just smooth from washing with this!

I DO think that having the ProX brush helps it work better, or if you have a Clairsonic Mia or DDR or some other brand of a powered face brush. A BufPuf sponge might work well with this, too.

MAKEUP REMOVAL?
I don't wear makeup, really, if I do it's a (indie house, not retail brand) medium coverage mineral foundation and a silicone type mascara (not the waxy kind), powder blush and pencil eyeliner, sometimes liquid eye liner, and powder eye shadow. This removes the mineral foundation and blush just fine, and since I don't use it on my eyes, I can't tell you.

REMARKS:
I feel like my face is a little less red than it was before I started using this cleanser. I have always been pink in the face, however am not diagnosed with Rosacea.
I haven't noticed a huge difference in my pore size, but to me they do look cleaner.
This does not irritate my scar on my forehead.

WILL I USE IT/THIS LINE AGAIN?
I will absolutely be keeping this as part of my facial routine. It feels nice to see such great results after only a short time of taking care of my skin again. I like the St. Ives' cleanser still, but I wasn't seeing similar results in the time I was using that again, which was a similar timespan.

I will definitely be trying other products from this company in the future, both from the Yes to Tomatoes line and from Yes to's other lines (Cucumbers, Blueberries, Carrots). Great product. I will absolutely recommend this line to my friends and family after having such good results from this cleanser.

I had high hopes for this cleanser, but it was a major disappointment. It is a sticky, almost honey type of consistency that clings to the skin and doesn't make it feel clean. Also, it smells like beer. Within days of starting to use it, my skin was breaking out like crazy. It just kept getting worse until I stopped using it. It's expensive, too.

Comments about Yes to Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser, 3.38 oz:

This is truly the BEST product I have ever used on my skin. It does what it says it will do and then some. It is very hard to find a product that caters to breakout prone skin, that is not acne specific. Anything more mild than an acne cleanser would just cause instant breakouts. I have very finicky skin and have used countless other natural products to try and calm it. This cleanser is the middle ground I have been searching for! I literally have half the amount of breakouts since using this cleanser. My overall skin tone has improved and become more even. I have oily skin that is very breakout prone, even into my mid twenties. This is a miracle product that actually works without being overly drying. I wash my face with it once a day every night before bed. I have been using the Tomatoes Moisturizer for years and wonder what took me so long to try the rest of the line. Please do not stop making this amazing product! It seems to be being pulled from the store shelves and I hope that it is not being discontinued. Please keep this in your line up! It is one of the few products I have ever used that actually WORKS!

    I have very oily skin that is also sensitive. I really have to watch what I use or it will make my skin red and irritated. I love this product! It cleans well and leaves my skin looking smooth. I don't break out often, but when I do this product seems to clear them up in record time. Since I am sensitive, I use this product about 3x a week. It does not irritate my eyes or dry out my skin.

    Comments about Yes to Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser, 3.38 oz:

    I've been using this for about 2 weeks and can tell a big difference in my face already. I have very oily very sensitive and severely acne prone skin..cystic acne. My face is less oily..I no longer look like an oil slick 3 hours after applying make up. My existing acne is healing quickly with out leaving the nasty dry red splotches. I've had less new acne forming. I'm honestly surprised how well it's doing. I'll post again once I finish this bottle. But right now this stuff is totally working. I do recommend using an eye makeup remover though as this wont take off heavy duty waterproof mascara or eye liner very well.
    I've purchased a few other of the yes to Line of products..good stuff. Pleased with price and results on all so far.

            I was looking for something without all those pesky chemicals in it and after reading rave reviews, thought it would be a solid choice.

            However, it was WAY too drying. I have combination skin and eczema, and was literally peeling after one week use. I thought my skin was just adjusting to the cleanser, but after it began to hurt to even put on moisturizer, I quickly chunked it. Not to mention it has a strong smell I didn't care for at all.

            I bought this as an alternative to the facial cleansers that have harsh ingredients for my teenage daughter who struggles with acne here and there. She used it for 1-2 weeks. She said she liked it. I didn't see any redness or an increase in acne. But I'm not sure that it was helping the previous acne heal either. So we've moved on to other face washes. It seems gentle, but I'm not sure if it's too gentle to take on minor acne breakouts.

                  I hate pretend "Natural" products. Sodium benzoate is a preservative that can be toxic to liver, when combined with Vit C forms benzene, a carcinogen (benzoate=get it?),and is neurotoxic to aquatic animals. Shame on Yes brand - all for a buck.

                    This thick gel is extremely gentle but still a great cleanser. I have combination skin to the max with not only being dry and oily in certain places but it's also sensitive. This doesn't bother me and still cleans away the oil. Because it's so thick you only need a little and have to thin it out a little with water. I love combining it with a wash cloth or shower sponge. It quickly and easily rinses off if you lathered it right.

                      I never leave reviews. And I mean - NEVER.

                      I started using this product Friday. It is now Sunday. In those FEW short days - My skin is practically glowing! My husband cannot even believe how great it looks and is going to buy a bottle of his own!

                      I have used so many acne products to try and help with the little bumps - and major acne flareups I get close to 'that' time of month. I have sun damaged skin from too much exposure from 5 years of living in Hawaii (I am 24) and acne scaring.

                      My once reddish from acne medication skin - GONE!
                      My acne - 100% GONE! I mean, all of it! No bumps, nothing! My clarity is near perfection!
                      My Skin tone is more even. And my face literally look like it's glowing.

                      I cannot say enough how much I am loving this product. You do not need much of it - maybe a dime size. Apply to a wet face. I rub it on my face until I start to feel less 'give' from the product. I am also exfoliating at night with this product.

                      I took a before photo - and after four weeks I plan to take another photo. I cannot wait to share the difference with everyone!
