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. continued >>
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.
As most have pointed out, this product has a very strange texture. It does not go on smoothly and takes a lot of effort to make the white streaks go away. For something that is supposed to be calming, it just isn't. It also dries in the pump and plugs up the nozzle within a day. Not my favorite SPF moisturizer.
The first time I used this, I thought maybe I'd gotten a really old bottle because the texture was so bad, sort of like very very small curd cottage cheese rather than a smooth cream. I checked the date and it was nowhere near expired. I put this on over my regular serum and had a lot of trouble getting it to apply evenly; it left white streaks that were difficult to get rid of. It also felt heavy, like it wasn't really sinking in. The second day, same story. Surely all that rubbing can't be good for my skin. I tried putting some on my bare skin and application was not noticeably better. I do like the pump dispenser.
After reading all previous reviews I am not even sure I am reviewing the same product, hehe. But here how it affects my skin - absolutely marvelously! I have dry, sensitive skin and extremely sensitive nose. My skin loves this moisturizer - it absorbs it right away and doesn't feel oily or heavy at all. Yes, the smell isn't great, but again, it doesn't bother my sensitive nose. Further, the smell fades pretty fast and I am left with smooth, hydrated skin. This product doesn't contain harsh chemicals, which is another plus. Finally, the packaging is very convenient.
I've been using it for over a year and will certainly continue using.
Ugh. So. I've used this product two days in a row. Simply: I hate it. The smell is fine, and even sort of refreshing, though it does smell like a salad. But the texture is exactly as other reviewers have said: heavy, doesn't sink into skin, somehow feels greasy and chalky at the same time. The white mask it leaves behind paired with the flush in my face from having just worked out, made it look like I had some sort of rash. It's been 3 hours since I put it on, I don't have oily skin, and my face is really greasy. The only good thing I can say is that the packaging is nice.
