Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes
Yup, I’m recommending face wipes. I know! I mentioned Yes To as being an eco-friendly brand here as their face wipes are made of compostable and FSC-certifed fabric which means no more plastic in the ocean! These wipes are super-freshing, so great for cooling the skin down quickly. I find face wipes often leave my skin feeling a little sore (thanks to high alcohol content) but these are not irritating in the slightest. They’re not an everyday use item for me, but have earned their place in my bathroom cabinet to be used on lazy days, to take off the majority of makeup or when travelling. That is, if I can get to them before Chris uses them all…
Yes To Cucumber Face Masks
I mean is it really a Sunday if you don’t do a mask or two? I think not, as does Yes To as they’ve got loads of different masks for pretty much any situation. There’s the sachet of calming mud mask with green clay to purify and calm stressed skin; the calming sleep mask to be used overnight to wake up to bouncier, refreshed skin; the 2-step eye kit to freshen up (just like the traditional cucumber slices on the eyes) and improve dark circles.
Yes To Cucumber Daily Skincare
If you’re not into wipes, the the calming micellar cleansing water is the one you need to try… It comes with a pump! Pressing down on the bottle twice soaks a cotton pad enough to quickly take off makeup. It’s gentle enough to use on the eyes, too, so you can hold a cotton pad over lids to melt away mascara. I’m always a big advocate of the double cleanse, so I’d also follow up a micellar water with the daily gel cleanser. It’s super light on the skin, and perfect for summer when skin can feel hot easily. Made from 96% natural ingredients, I’d recommend this formula the most for combination/sensitive/oily skins.
The soothing eye gel… has to be the best thing for hay fever eyes ever. When eyes are feeling so sore and irritated, this gel feels really cooling and refreshing. I’m leaving this in the fridge to use first thing in the morning to de-puff eyes. Similarly, the calming facial mask is another summer hero as it’s fabulous applied to warm skin after a long day.
