[kkstarratings]Hello beauties, Boots Cucumber Moisturising Lotion comes packed in a nice green bottle, easy to carry around even in a small handbag. The smell of this moisturiser is of cucumber plus something I cannot define but it fades away after sometime. Don’t you think Globalization has been a Magic Wand to us. Without it we had only one soap , one shampoo ,one cream etc brand to choose from. After that blessing we not only have series of Indian companies making affordable products but also imported cosmetics to choose from. Boots is one of those companies situated in U.K. They make super affordable products and now with the easy access to a mouse we get connected to the whole world in a few minutes and can order anything from anywhere.

Feel about Boots Cucumber Moisturising Lotion
I was looking for a light moisturizer for my normal to dry skin and was eyeing Boots one for sometime as the label says all skin types which means my whole family can use this. I opted for this variant (that is without sun protection) because I wanted a day and night moisturizer otherwise it becomes a hassle to keep juggling between different products.
On applying it gives a nice cooling sensation and keeps the face and body well moisturized for hours and does not make the face greasy at all. Rather it gives that dewy look to the face which looks nice too. I have been using this for two weeks and on my face and I did not feel the need to reapply this even after 4 hours in as it does not give that stretchy feeling which many oil free moisturizers do.
However this is not appropriate for dry skin as well as oily skin because while the former starts feeling stretchy the latter would get an shiny look on the face. And how can I forget its consistency is so easy to spread, so I need only a small amount every time. Overall this is a nice moisturizer for normal and combination skin type only plus it acts as a good base for make up too. However I cannot comment on how it would go with extreme cold season.
