I currently have pretty mixed feelings about this product, but it's leaning toward better side.
I can't really say anything about the price, because my friend bought this, tried it, hated it, and gave it to me.
I will say -- the scent is extremely strong and in my opinion, pretty unpleasant. There's a whisper of cucumbers hiding in there somewhere, but it smells more like leather, which isn't awful, but it's certainly kind of harsh. It's also kind of strange that when you put it on initially, it just kind of...sits there. To a degree where I legitimately look white right after application. It takes some 10 - 15 minutes to soak in properly.
One thing I like about it is that I have really oily skin, and so sometimes, slathering on oily moisturizers just makes it feel worse, but this is slightly thicker and a bit "dryer" while still making my skin feel nice, and it definitely gets a thumbs-up for that, if nothing else. I find that it's also great in getting rid of redness...though it doesn't mention anything about toning, I've found that prolonged usage kind of gets rid of a lot of redness.
Though I would probably buy this again, I don't know if I'd recommend it because it's kind of thick.
I love this product, I have repurchased this a few times and will continue to. It smells fresh, does a great job of moisturising and feels light when you apply it. I especially love this product as it is paraben free and 95 or 97% natural, I can't exactly remember.
I like it. My skin is very oily (especially during the summer months) and after reading the reviews i wasn't too convinced, but i was looking for a drugstore product that contains mostly harmless ingredients, and after spending 30minutes reading ingredients on every single facial moisturizer, i remembered an article about this brand. After reading the ingredients, i decided it was the best option. There are no dyes, parabens, sulfates, aluminium. Yes there is fragrance, but it's not the worst considering everything else is absent....
Onto the review itself: it is heavy but it rubs in pretty well. It holds makeup well, and i didn't notice any unusual shine (but of course, I am still shiny, it is not a mattifying lotion...)
It moisturizes well, especially the tough spots (cheeks, jawline, nose) and the smell is ok (but kind of chemical)
Overall, i like it. I will stick to it unless i find a better one, but for the price, i think it's tough to beat.
This is a great physical drugstore sunscreen for its price IF you can tolerate the initial heaviness/stickiness of the product and the fragrance. Once you rub it in (and, you do have to really rub it in!) the whitish cast from the zinc oxide goes away and, after a few minutes, so does the heavy sticky feeling on your face. It doesn't break me out, and the fragrance is a pretty strong but pleasant cucumber smell. YTC has got 6% zinc oxide and 5% titanium dioxide, which is way more than other drugstore suncreens that boast comparable protection. This almost justifies the considerably higher price...almost! I'm taking a two lippies of for fragrance and stickiness, and a lippy off for packaging, which is a bit bulky IMO.
Unfortunately, I will not be purchasing again because I just can't stand the sticky heaviness of the product, especially during hot Texas summers. I just finished my bottle of Yes To Cucumbers SPF 30 and replaced it with Shiseido Urban Protection SPF 40, which feels like such a luxury after Yes To Cucumbers because it smells great, sinks in immediately, and leaves my skin feeling silky and moisturized instead of sticky. If I were to go back to a drugstore sunscreen, however, I would probably return to an old favorite, Eucerin Everyday Protection SPF 30. continued >>
This is for the spf 30 cucumber cream. It almost had everything I wanted. The spf factor, the non testing of animals, however I can't get past how thick this stuff is. It's like trying to smear icing on your face. All the pulling and pushing my hands are doing to get this cream on has got to be bad for the wrinkles.
This is the worst product I've ever tried in my life. I put a few dots around my face, but found it impossible to blend! The dots just stayed there. Not only that but it was horribly sticky. Like fly trap sticky. I don't know how this can be sold.
This review is for Yes to Cucumber Facial lotion with SPF 30. Contrary to the other reviews, i found this product divine. Yes the consistency is very fluid and beady, but the application was easy enough. What i do is dot my face with it starting from forehead and working throughout the whole face, and then spread it using my finger. It was tropical on where i stay, therefore sometimes my face feel sticky (but not cakey) due to the sweat. I also like how the product does not contain parabens and only minimal fragrance is added. Defintely a must buy!
Stay pretty :)
I have oily skin but it's very acne prone and sensitive. I bought this in a kit and tried the towelettes but those burnt my skin, which made me reluctant to try the moisturizer but I did and I actually really like it! Somehow my skin doesn't react to it, which I thought it would.
It's exactly what I was looking for: a simple and lightweight moisturizer, it makes my skin feel amazing. Definitely recommend it!
Awful!! I like Yes To's ingredients, hygenic packaging, and price. But why do ALL their products contain intense artificial fragrance -- especially the Cucumbers line for sensitive skin?? Like another review noted, this has a repungent, artificial floral-cucumber smell and my instinct said to immediately return it. But I applied it and within 5 minutes, my entire face was literally inflamed (red, tingly & blotchy). I rinsed it off immediately but had to wait an hour before I could leave the house.
I immediately returned this to Walgreens. Ironically, the cashier gal told me that she bough the Yes to Cucumbers Towelettes and they burned her face too! Will not be trying any more of their products.
This review is for the Daily Calming Moisturizer with SPF 30. I picked this up because I needed an SPF moisturizer and this was on my list to try.
I had seen some reviews complaining about it being too white, but I pumped a bit on my finger and streaked it on my cheek, then rubbed it in. Yes, I did have to massage it in, but it did fade into my skin. After that I removed it and tried it again, this time with a fan brush on one cheek and a stippling brush on the other. Actually the fan brush did a really good job of applying a nice, even, light layer. The stippling brush did as well. I could tell it was on my face, but it blended in quite well.
I wore it out for a full day after applying with a flat top brush and brushing over it lightly with a bit of powder. It looked quite natural for the first few hours. At the end of the day there were some areas that looked a bit white, but I did not touch up the powder all day.
I will say that I am fairly pale/light. I would imagine people that are tanned or dark skinned might not be able to get it to completely blend into their skin the way I could.
Nothing special about the packaging, but I like the pump instead of a tube. Seems cleaner to me.
I think I might have found the perfect moisturizer with SPF.
