I am such an inveterate snob when it comes to potions and lotions (amongst other things) that I would barely deign to look at one that costs a mere $7.99. However, Yes To Carrots keeps appearing in just about every magazine I pick up and curiosity finally got the better of me. For no particular reason, I picked out the Body Moisturizing Lotion. Yes To Carrots boasts being paraben free and its key ingredients are Dead Sea mud, as well the obvious carrots. I thoroughly expected them to be mere needles in a haystack of gloop and chemicals. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Yes to Carrots Body Moisturizing Lotion has an emollient, propylene glycol (which I, personally, believe is largely safe) and imidazolidinyl urea, a preservative that can irritate sensitive skin. Apart from that, however, it is excellent value for money with olive, jojoba, avocado and almond oil, organic extracts of pumpkin, sweet potato and melon. Then there is vitamin E and niacin (vitamin B3 supposedly good against rosacea and for brightening skin) and no less than three algae extracts.

If I find myself in Walgreens (where it is exclusively sold) I shall definitely pick up a tube.

Water (Aqua), Dead Sea Water (Maris Aqua), Daucus Carota (Carrot) Juice, Isopropyl Myristate, Propylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Gel, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Calendula Officinalis Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Juice, Ipomoera Batatas (Sweet Potato) Extract, Cucumis Melo (Melon) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Honey (Mel) Extract, Silt (Maris Limus), Olea Europaea (Olive Oil), Fragrance (Parfum), Potassium Lactate, Chamomila Recutita (Chamomile Oil), Tocopherol Acetate, Algae Extracts (Rhodella, Dunaliella, Spirulina), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Propolis Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Niacin, Daucus Carota (Carrot) Seed Oil, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Peel Extract.

    You don't have to go to Walgreens to get this great Yes To Carrots body lotion! I bought it from and just recently received it in the mail (I just checked the website right now and I think they jacked up their prices, although its labeled under "SALE." I bought my day cream for about $11, and the lotion for less than $6!! What a steal!!). I've tried it once or twice and love it already! It is light enough to smooth all over the body easily and quickly-and the best part is, it absorbs quickly to moisturize WITHOUT the stickiness, which usually slows me down when I try to apply other lotions; my hands get stuck in one place and the application isn't evenly spread. LOVE IT!

    <p>Stan, I will and Lori I hear you! I am going to show the price of everything I cover from now on and make much more of an effort to review budget products that are good value. Nothing like a recession to get things back into perspective.</p>

    <p>Thank you Stan. It would be nice if you could review the whole line of Avalon and other more affordable lines. With the price of gas and groceries increasing, who can afford to spend $34 for 8oz of shampoo. We have a family of 5 and go through 8oz of shampoo in 2 - 3 weeks. I can justify spending a bit for a face potion or lotion, but when it comes to soaps, shampoos, and body lotions, I need to shop more frugal.</p>

    <p>Cold you also review Avalon Organics body lotion which is available at Whole Foods for $6? Please compare to the Carrots. </p>
