Yes to Cucumbers Review

I was thrilled to be trying two products from this range; I must admit I struggle to fit in my five a day sometimes so what better way than to do it through my skin!  Okay it might be cheating but either way my skin is definitely benefiting from the cleansing and cooling properties of cucumber.

In the past I have been a fan of applying cucumbers over my eyes to help dark circles but now I can save the cucumber for the kids lunches and instead enjoy the Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel (£14.99) instead!  You can even keep it in the fridge to really cool and calm the delicate area around your eye.

My eyes are always looking tired and I have bags on my bags sometimes.  It is no surprise my blog is called Missing Sleep, with youngest falling out of bed, the occasional nightmares, and both of them constantly doing battle with a variety of germs… that have all contributed to the feeling of not having slept properly for YEARS!  But my eyes have looked considerably better since using this natural product.

The Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturiser (£14.99) really helped my skin glow.  It is nice and light and my skin felt much softer.  I was quite partial to the refreshing cucumber scent too.  I found I only needed to use a little bit at each application so this 50g bottle will last ages.

These products are great quality at affordable prices.  I could see myself using them again and recommending them to family and friends.  For one I especially love the spiel on the packet and I am a sucker for clever advertising:

The Power of Yes

Yes to organic fruits and veggies.  Yes to caring as much about what you put on your body as what you put in it.  Yes to the benefits of Dead Sea Mud.  Yes to being low maintenance and highly fabulous.  Yes to happiness.  Yes to you!

I feel empowered already!

Yes to Cucumbers is available to purchase from Victoria Health.

  5. This sounds fabulous!  I used to use a lovely range of cucumber products as a teenager, but they are no longer produced.  I'll have to give this a try :o)

  6. I am a fan of these products. Since I started using them my eyes look really nice. Yes to cucumbers and beautiful eyes! ;-) Marcela
