Cucumber Skincare ~ Hydrosols

Cucumber is my favorite skincare ingredient. The first “fancy” skincare line I ever used was Body Shop’s cucumber toner and face wash. They discontinued it and I’ve never been back since. That was the best product ever, and it smelled SO GOOD! When I saw this little spray from Shea Brands, I was immediately drawn to test it out based on the crisp, cucumber packaging. Hydrosols, are created by distilling fresh leaves, fruits and flowers. They provide a nourishing and refreshing boost when sprayed on the face and body. They help balance, calm and restore the skin by increasing blood flow and controlling water retention. Half of the experience of hydrosols is that they FEEL and SMELL amazing! Hydrosols are also good for after-sun exposure, soothing sunburns and reducing puffiness and swelling.

Cucumber Hydrosol works to hydrate, tone and tighten pores, leaving your skin with a bright, refreshed look and feel. I use this on my face before (yes, you know what I’m going to say) using a beloved steamer. It’s also refreshing throughout the day even sprayed over makeup.
