Winter weather can take a toll on the skin. Cold temperatures often mean less humidity, which can leave skin feeling dry, itchy and irritated. This easy-to-make Cucumber Lotion contains cucumber extract for its soothing and skin loving properties. It’s made with the Basic Lotion Base, which is specially created to add up to 5% of additional additives (oils, extracts, etc). The base contains avocado oil, glycerin and coconut oil to create an effective, yet lightweight formula. If you prefer to make your own lotion from scratch, check out this blog post to learn how.
I scented this lotion with the refreshing Cucumber Oak Fragrance Oil. It’s a great scent that’s suitable for both men and women. This lotion does have a soft green color, but don’t worry; none of that green actually shows up on your skin. =) The combination of Emerald LabColor and Kermit Green Mica leaves a very subtle shimmer that has no lasting green hue.
