Any cucumber lovers here? Not me for eating but YES in skincare!
Cucumbers are extremely juicy and refreshing, we know the cucumbers are a miracle ingredient that contains 96 percent of water, how incredible is that! Not only are they refreshing but they work wonders on our skin too. Cucumbers are known to reduce puffiness and eye bags, I used to watch a lot of celebrities actually do so too. No doubt, cucumber is rich in anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants, it is almost suitable for all skin types, from oily to dry skin peeps, you are all welcome to use cucumber in your facial care. The super hot sun and weather in Malaysia seriously killing us and slowly killing my skin cells as well. Cucumber to quench my thirst please? To help you understand the goodness of cucumbers, here are 5 amazing benefits of cucumber facemask.

Did you know cucumber also rich in vitamin C and folic acid? By putting a cucumber face mask works wonders on fine lines and wrinkle-ridden skin. It helps to slows down the process of ageing and avoids premature ageing.
How to use:
- After washing your face, gently apply toner on your face to even out your skin texture.
2. Then, apply the mask over your entire face, avoiding your eye and lip areas.
3. Remove the mask after 10-20 minutes and gently pat your face to allow the remaining formula to absorb into your skin.
All Innisfree’s sheet masks in this line are so good and very affordable. I prefer those in watery and essence type as it is gentle and very moist at the same time. The sheet mask is drenched in nutritious essence from cucumber. When I took it out from the packet the sheet mask is so thin and almost transparent. Guess what it was made from 100% cellulose.
The Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Cucumber comes in a sleek white sachet with printed cucumber on it, which is quite in line with the packaging of the rest other masks in this range. The mask fits quite well on my face, even the opening of the eye and mouth was aligned. But as I have a wider facial features, it doesn’t fully cover my face especially my jaw area. I let it sit on my face for about 20minutes so that the essence is completely soaked into my skin. This mask comes with cute little ears at the side of the mask for easy pull off. Just one pull and you’re done!
The first thing I noticed on putting the sheet mask on, is the cooling sensation that feels so calming on tired skin. At the same time it doesn’t have an overbearing fragrance and I quite like it. The immediate noticeable effect after using this mask is I noticed my face got plumper than usual, a little more glowy and radiant complexion on my cheek area, but sadly it was only temporary. But it sufficiently hydrated my skin and treated a burned patch on my cheek. The best part is it didn’t break me out! This mask totally does a great job in soothing and hydrating the skin. Among all the Innisfree mask, I think cucumber is my favourite of all. Highly recommended if you have an oily prone skin like me! I would rate 5 stars for this mask and definitely will repurchase again.
