Yes To Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub is formulated with lemon balm to boost skin radiance and grapefruit for exfoliating. The scrub is claimed to be gentle, sloughs away dead skin, and helps repair damaged skin, age spots, sun spots, and hyper-pigmentation. Grapefruit extract in the formulation aids in warding off free radicals and minimizing skin discoloration, while promoting healthy, even skin tone, and radiance. Lemon balm extract is said to calm and repair damaged skin, while restoring a healthy glow. It retails for $9.99, 4 fl oz/113 g.

Even Skin Tone Moisturizer with SPF 15 is claimed to help diminish the appearance of dark spots in four weeks. It is formulated with Moringa oil, a skin conditioning moisturizer rich in fatty acids and vitamins A and C, and also contains grapefruit extract to help fade age spots and increase luminosity. The products also contains passion flower, to naturally soothe the skin and prevent redness, and broad spectrum SPF 15 protection, with zinc oxide and titanium oxide. It retails for $15.99, 1.4 fl oz/41 ml.

Dark Spot Correcting Serum features a tropical scent and a powerful blend of fruit acids, including mulberry fruit, white tea and grapefruit, and is said to make skin firmer, visibly diminish the appearance of dark spots in four weeks, and reduce facial imperfections, while making the face brighter and more even toned. Grapefruit extract, rich in citrus flavanoids; white tea, to help repair sun damage and correct pigmentation irregularities; and African star grass, a power plant said to even the skin tone, fade age spots, and diminish freckles and hyper-pigmentation comprise the blend. The serum is to be applied over face and neck twice a day, and followed with Yes To moisturizer. Yes To Dark Spot Correcting Serum retails for $19.99.

Dark Circle Correcting Eye Cream features Indian gooseberry, rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C, licorice extract to soothe redness and puffiness, and crambe abyssinica oil, a non-greasy oil which provides lipids to improve skin tone and texture. In combination with the grapefruit extract, the formulation is claimed to gently diminish the appearance of dark circles in four weeks. Yes To Grapefruit Dark Circle Correcting Cream retails for $15.99, 0.5 fl oz/15 ml.

Yes To Grapefruit Exfoliating Body Wash, which Leffler notes, aligns with the current European trend for exfoliating body scrubs, is claimed to be a healthy way to promote skin renewal, improve skin’s elasticity, and add firmness and tone. In addition to grapefruit extract and a gentle, tropical scent, the formulation blends pumice derived from volcanic rock, to exfoliate the skin naturally and gently, and alantoin to help moisturize the skin, leaving it smooth and nourished.
