Crisp, cool cucumber fights at anti-aging, flushes out toxins and soothes the skin keeping it fresh and revived. My favorite summer skincare products are infused with this B-Vitamin packed vegetable.
Nugg Beauty Cucumber Mask:: Jojoba oil and cucumber extract, this comes in a single pod (protects from oxidation) and has been an Allure “Best of Beauty” winner! Added witch hazel extract absorbs oil so your skin is flawless. This is different than other masks since it doesn’t dry, it’s like a lotion texture and combines cucumber with olive oil, lavender, rose, cranberry and grape.
All Beauty Cucumber Water::: 0 calories, 0 added sugar and absolutely no funky artificial nonsense. Nutrient rich and formulated to help hydrate your skin, each bottle of All Beauty water has 8 skin vitamins + 7 skin nutrients. Non GMO, vegan, gluten-free! Vit A, Vit C, Vit D, Vit E, Vit B12, Vit B6, Vit B3 and Biotin. Additional nutrients are Selenium, Green Tea extract, Magnesium, Manganese, Calcium, Potassium, Zinc. They sell other flavors besides cucumber (try the strawberry acai, I highly recommend it). I can’t seem to keep enough of these in stock since I’ve been drinking 2/daily. I notice a difference in my skin, especially when I don’t get enough sleep this is key to looking more alert!
Julie Hewett Cucumber Water Spray::: I can’t do my makeup without a setting spray. I keep this one in the fridge so it’s extra cold, and use it in the morning before applying makeup and throughout the day to refresh and set it. I want to buy an extra one to stash in my purse, it’s addictive. I use a liquid foundation and this works wonders at prepping and setting. I even spray an eyeshadow brush to make my glittery colors pop and an eyebrow brush to groom. I’m a huge fan of Julie Hewett products and I truly think they have improved my skin. It also works as an excellent toner. My suggestion is to get two – one for home, one for the purse and you’ll be all set.
Lather Cucumber Face Wash::: My favorite face wash for years was the cucumber wash + toner from The Body Shop. They have since discontinued the product and I had to find an alternative. It took me forever, but I finally found it (and a better version). Lather makes an amazing Cucumber face wash and Cucumber Ginseng Spray.
Giovanni cucumber face wipes::: Wearing contacts, my eyes get irritated at the end of the day and most makeup removing wipes sting like crazy. Giovanni;s cucumber wipes are gentle but really go in on removing all of my makeup. Loaded with citrus and essential oils, they are also hypoallergenic and ophthalmologist tested.
June Jacobs Cucumber Green Tea Body Balm::: This is my favorite lotion ever! I used the entire thing already. A bouquet of green tea combines with cucumber to create a crisp, fresh scent! June Jacobs crafts this balm with shea butter, sunflower, jojoba and sesame to keep your skin super hydrated. Time for me to stock up on more! Especially cooking so much, I’m constantly drying my hands out with dish soap, this helps big time.
Clarity Rx Cold Press Mask::: I pair this with the other cucumber products to reduce redness. It’s particularly great after a day at the beach in the sun when you need to calm your skin down. It cools on contact to reduce stress it’s a powerful blend of chamomile, cucumber + Vitamin C.
Face Stockholm Cucumber Bubble Bath::: This can be used as a bubble bath or wash, no heavy chemical soap ingredients and a crisp, clean scent. Gentle and non-drying, it’s loaded with cucumber extract – an affordable luxury! My only complaint is that I wish it was a little bit bigger, the small size was used up in just a few weeks (or maybe it’s my fault for using too much of it).
