As Cool as a Cucumber!

For me, nothing is as invigorating or refreshing as the wonderful scent of cucumber! Its natural cooling, soothing and cleansing effect makes it a key ingredient in many of today's most popular beauty products. From facial masks to fragrant sprays, cucumbers are not just tasty, they're great for your overall healthy both inside and out. It keeps your skin soft and your eyes de-puffed. What's not to love?

Secret Fresh Effects deodorant in Cucumber Aloe is THE only thing getting me through the summer. It throws down like Secret generally does but the Cucumber Aloe scent is SO incredibly refreshing. It's light and it's airy and it makes me feel clean even when I'm dripping sweat.

I love the Dove Cucumber line, the deodorant and the body spray and the Conditioner is a must in my line up. When I need a nice little pick me up I spray the Dove Cucumber and Aloe body spray and it makes me smile every time :)

Thanks for running this contest.

I've heard cucumber is supposed to reduce puffiness around the eyes, but I have yet to try it. I love Bath and Body Works Cucumber Melon scent, tho...yum!

BGG, I'm giving my Neutrogena a break right now so I'm using Say Yes to Carrots' facial cleanser with cucumber and I love it. The smell is fresh, clean and exhilarating! Love it!

Yes! I love to eat cucumbers and I will try anything that will help me with my puffiness around my eyes.
I will give a try to Bare Escentuals from Sephora.

I've noticed that I tend to gravitate toward things with a cucumber scent. I am a huge Bath and Bodyworks fan and of course I have the Cucumber Melon lineup in my stock. I have never heard of the Say Yes line, but it is certainly something I will have to look in to.

I have not used anything with cucumber in such a long time. Fun post and great reminder.
