As promised in my previous review of the Cucumber Face Wash, here is my review of another product from the Cucumber range that has now become a part of my daily skin care routine.
This cleanser comes in a tall 150ml plastic bottle, and has the same design as the other products in the range, white, with all the writing in pale green writing, and the cucumber designed pattern around the top of the label, and this one has a screw top lid. The whole range has a youthful and fresh looking design which is rather eye catching.
Like the rest of the range, the cleanser is an absolute bargain price - just 80p for a bottle! (And I will also point out that I have picked these items up at even better sale prices before, one time picking up 3 items from the range for just £1!! So keep your eyes peeled for these offers)
The blurb on the back of this bottle reads - 'This range has been enriched with Cucumber extract for natural moisturising and soothing properties, helping to gently care for your skin. The gentle formulation will remove make up and impurities that build up on your skin leaving your skin feeling cleansed and refreshed.'
The first time I used the cleanser, I encountered a slight problem. I tipped the bottle up and squeezed gently to try get a dollop of the cream out, and loads came out! I had to try scoop some back into the bottle so I didn't waste any. As I have worked down the bottle, I find it harder sometimes to get any of the cream out, and have to shake the bottle to release any, which then leads to me again having to scrape some off my hand back into the bottle. So, Tescos, if you ever read this, some work could be done on the design of your bottles!
This slight problem aside, once you have the cream out, you smooth it all over your face to leave a layer of it over the skin, but don't rub it all in. The cream is not thick and heavy, and not really runny either.
Then, remove the cleanser by wiping off with cotton wool, adding a little pressure.
As you remove the cleanser, you can see the difference it makes by checking out the cotton wool. The first time I did I almost gagged! The cotton wool ball was almost brown/greyish colour and looked really dirty! Unfortunately, it doesn't get better if you use it daily, and you will soon realise just how much everyday dirt and grime your skin absorbs every day.
The bottle also says it will help remove make up. I normally use facial wipes to do this as I find them gentler especially for eye make up. But I ran out one day so used this instead. The easiest way is to add a little cleanser to a cotton wool ball, than wipe that with another cotton wool ball so you dont have too much going near they eye. I wipe the cotton wool gently over my eye, and it does do a really good job of removing even my mascara, although if there is too much on the ball it does sting the eye, so I tend to use it as little as possible for removing eye make up, but for things like foundations, it is great, and gentle on the skin.
This along with my other products from this range have made my skin feel and looks so much cleaner and refreshed, and the skin feels so soft. They really are great little products that last a long time, too.
Summary: A simple,basic range that works really well
