Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Cream Review

Hello everyone!

Today’s review is about boots moisturizing cucumber cream. I bought this cream when there was buy 3 and pay for 2 offer going on in boots. I bought two of these creams and their own brands cucumber face wash. Since winters are approaching its now time to change skin care products, according to the weather. In winters my skin becomes dry and flaky around the corners of lips, I otherwise have normal to dry skin. Read on the review to see how did it stand out.


Price: £1.50

Product Description:

Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Cream is enriched with soothing cucumber and vitamins, it is suitable for day or night use and contains antioxidants to help protect the skin from environmental damage.

My Experience with Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Cream:


The texture of this cream is on the thicker side. I like to apply it at night, if I do not have my night cream handy. Though it won’t work like a night cream but due to its thicker texture, it provides apt moisturization. It surely smells like cucumber and that makes me feel fresh every time I apply it.


It moisturizes my skin for up to 5 hours and after that, I need to reapply it. People who like to apply their moisturizer once and do not like to touch up, I think its not the right product for them. I personally don’t mind to reapply cream and moisturizers, so it works fine for me. It has never broke me out. I think its not apt for summers because its too thick and my skin in summer turns oily but in winters it’s a wonderful product and one plus point is that, its not expensive.


After application, it gets completely absorbed and it does not feel greasy on the skin. One down side is that it does not have SPF.

Pros of Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Cream:

• It is affordable.
• It has a wonderful thick texture that provides good moisturization for dry skin
• It has a nice cucumber fragrance
• Easily available in all the boots stores (it is usually on offer!!)

Cons of Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Cream:

• Nothing I can think of except that it has no SPF. It is a wonderful product that serves the purpose well.

IMBB rating: 4.5/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Cream again?
Yes, definitely! though I would be using it only in winters and not for summers.

Conclusion: It is a wonderful and an affordable product and easily available. People with dry to normal skin would love it!
