Yes to Cucumbers Gentle Milk Cleanser is 98 percent natural and is completely paraben- and phthalate-free. The formula is also free of harsh detergents. Although the cleanser is gentle, it contains fragrance, which isn't recommended for sensitive skin.
Fragrance may irritate sensitive skin. Yes to Cucumbers Gentle Milk Cleanser is a paraben-free formula marketed as the "perfect" option for sensitive skin due to its all natural, calming ingredients. It contains soothing cucumber as well as soy proteins, which moisturize the skin while cleansing. Paula Begoun says the formula is very gentle and soothing but not recommended for sensitive and rosacea-affected skin because it contains fragrance. The formula contains antioxidants, but Begoun says they don't stay on the skin for long enough to be of much good. Editors at Allure magazine say the cleanser provides a deep, refreshing cleanse with no irritation. Editors say it leaves skin feeling soft and supple.
Cool as a cucumber. Reviewers say the Yes to Cucumbers cleanser is minimally fragranced with a light cucumber scent, which some users like and others don't. Editors at Allure magazine say it provides an instant cooling sensation.
Review Credibility: Excellent Paula Begoun says Yes to Cucumbers is "an outstanding option for normal to dry skin." She says it's not a top choice, however, for those with sensitive skin or rosacea because it contains a very small amount of fragrance.
