Eat Your Fruits- Yes to Cucumbers and Blueberries

Dear readers, allow me to tell a story. It goes a little something like this.

Our subject is one very precocious toddler, conquering the world one day at a time.

Her days went a little something like this. She’d wake up every morning, have her breakfast, and then get ready to go to the park with her Mama dearest in tow. Upon arriving, she would greet the usual suspects in her customarily exuberant manner.

She would play for hours, climbing monkey bars, leading her friends on all kinds of exciting expeditions. Then, around 1 PM, she would wave goodbye to her friends and head back home for lunch and a quick nap.

Lunch, now that was a bit of an ordeal. Day in and day out, mama dearest would provide a concoction comprised of tvorog (a Russian cottage cheese), milk biscuits, and whatever fruits Mama could get her hands on. It was all then blended to a smoothie-type consistency, meant to be spoon-fed. It goes without saying that when it came to consuming aforementioned concoction, our adorable tot became a little hellion. Her Mama would have to distract her in order to properly nourish her, and as a result the tot developed an aversion to fruit that lasted well through her childhood.

Time has passed, and our precocious tot is now fully grown into a savvy, very beauty-minded woman. While on her journey through early adulthood, she learned about proper nutrition and alternate fruit preparation methods, and began to embrace fruits into her culinary and beauty lifestyles to the point that they became everyday staples.  One day, while wandering through her local Target, she came across two most unusual lines, with some very special products. Yes to Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes

Yes to Cucumbers Facial Wipes she would come to discover, were the cure for what ailed her parched, slightly finicky visage. Full of moisture, and with all of the cooling properties of that cylindrical green fruit, she came to find that these wipes when swiped against her skin were indeed, as cool as a cucumber. Yes to Blueberries Intensive Skin Repair Serum

Yes to Blueberries Intensive Skin Repair Serum brought vitamins, moisture, and revitalization to her weather-worn skin, delivering the added benefit of all of those antioxidants that the violet berries are known for. Free of parabens, petroleum, and SLS, this serum did her countenance right, and at a relatively teeny tiny price point.

These days, our beauty has long since outgrown her aversion to fruits, incorporating them into her daily beauty lifestyle. Towards that goal, she has embraced both the Yes to Cucumbers, and the Yes to Blueberries skincare lines. Both are conveniently available at Target.
