By:Julie, Watertown, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Sep-2009
Rating: This is amazing! I ordered several items from you, (due to customer reviews). Your packaging 'shames' other companies along with your pricing, and selection. You are the best of the best when it comes to customer service, (thanks to Victoria). I'm now a faithful customer! Thanks again!
Rating: Has a light cucumber scent when mixed with liquids. Makes a wonderful toner, but because the powder was a dirty green, the final product turned out khaki. Still a great quality product.
By:Debra, Edmonton, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005

By:Michele, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I'm delighted that I purchased this product. It's really wonderful in my lotions and soaps. By itself, it's a marvelous astringent which leaves the skin soft, clear and smooth without the drying effect. It's nice to be able to add "Cucumis sativa" to the ingredients on my labels :) Although the scent is fresh and green, I personally add a bit of Green Tea fragrance to my lotions and soap. Thanks for the great packaging and reasonable price!

By:Susan, Whitby, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Cucumber peel extract added to moisturizer gives the product a great feel & texture; but also the skin actually feels lifted. I tell my clients its kind of like they're getting a free "lifting serum" with their moisturizer!

By:Denise, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I just made a facial duo with the cucumber peel and can I tell you that I am in love. I made a cleanser and a toner with the extract and my pores looked smaller immediately! I also gave it out as samples and everybody thinks this stuff is great. Better yet, a little goes a long way. I am going to try it in an eye cream next and see how what marvelous transformation that materializes.
Rating: This extract is a lovely green color. I love what this powder can do for you. It lends to a nice cucumber scent too! This is also hard to find in a lot of suppliers and ND's prices make them stand out from the rest! Thank you!
By:Heather, Colorado Springs, Colorado Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Aug-2009
Rating: I bought cucumber peel because I had done much research on the benefits of cucumber extracts, but had no real idea how I would incorporate it into my products. I added it to my acnes treatment just because I thought it couldn't hurt and I wanted to try it before I sent it to market. After about 2 weeks of use, I noticed a DRASTIC dimenishment of lines and wrinkles. I am thrilled to pieces with it and can't wait to try more complex formulations.

Rating: Great to add in a lotion or eye/face treatment. Ingredients are the key to selling your products and people recognize cucumber for it's long standing benefits. Always packaged well and imo a quality product (which could be why they're always selling out) ;)

Rating: great packaging! User's guide in the description would be helpful. This product is an awesome price, a little goes such a long way. I used this in a facial, and in a cleanser and toner. It was fantastic in both, adding a little elasticity to the mask as well as the cool scent. Love this one.
