How to use: Apply to cotton pad and sweep over face after cleansing. If product gets in eyes, rinse with clean water.

♥ It smells sooo good! Like cucumbers, but a little more...exotic, like a mocktail
♥ It picks up the last traces of dirt from my face after I've cleansed it, so it's a great exfoliant.
♥ It cools my skin & feels very gentle. 
♥ It does not sting my skin
♥ It hydrates my skin & shrinks my pores
♥ It makes my face feel very smooth & silky(with a glowy sheen) when it dries
♥ My skin absorbs serums & moisturizers quicker after this.
♥ The 250 ml bottle will last a long time

- I wish it was priced below Rs.400. A 1 litre Tropicana Juice box costs only 75 bucks. Okay, the juice box will run out in a week, but you know what I mean.

Best toner I've ever used, including Clinique Clarifying Lotion which stank of alcohol! 
I think this cucumber water suit all skin types. I really really love it! I recommend it 100%

Is it different from Rose Water? Yes,it is. First, it smells better. Second, it removes dirt which rose water doesn't do.

Price ~ Rs.495
Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5 (Overall product performance.We decided not to cut .2 for the price)

Have you tried this? Love it as much as I do?

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
