For those who refuse to use this simply because of the "Cetyl Alcohol" failed to properly research it BEFORE posting a negative review.

Cetyl alcohol is a fatty alcohol ( meaning it is an alcohol which comes from fat). It does not behave like a 'real alcohol' for example ethanol or propanol. Cetyl alcohol is made by heating coconut oil or palm oil with a strong base. This process is the same process used to make soap (saponification - the chemical by product that occurs).

Cetyl alcohol is used in the cosmetic industry as a opacifier in shampoos, or as an emollient, emulsifier or thickening agent in the manufacture of skin creams and lotions. It is essentially there to make sure the lotion penetrates the various layers of dermis more effectively. Cetyl alcohol is a fatty alcohol, meaning that it is derived from fats or oils, and can be used to reduce the surface tension of a liquid. Its used because of its overall effect on the chemical structure and stability of a given lotion or substance to maintain it's viscosity.

Next time research what TYPE of alcohol it is BEFORE to villainize the product. It comes from a natural source and is used in all types of APPROVED safe products aside from this lotion.

Brought to you by a degree in biology and not someone misleading, snubbing their nose at anything that remotely says alcohol.

Fragrance is irritating!

Awful! I badly wanted to love this. I like Yes To's ingredients, hygenic packaging, and prices. But why do ALL their products contain intense artificial fragrance--especially the Yes to Cucumbers line for sensitive skin?? This instantly inflammed my face, making it became red and tingly. I had to mist it with cool water and wait a half hour before leaving the house! Do not recommend.

    Comments about Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Daily Calming Moisturizer, 1.7 fl oz:

    At first it was clean, cool, refreshing on my face and around my eyes, but skin quickly turned into red, inflamed and burning! I have pretty sensitive skin and was pleased this was mostly all natural and not that toxic (too bad about the fragrance and alcohol that's added - I doubt it's necessary), but I'm concerned I had that bad a reaction to it. It is being returned ASAP.

      I so wanted this product to work. my face got really itchy and irritated after applying. i went and purchased the tomato one to see if there would be a difference because i really wanted to like this product and NOPE! same irritation that happened w/the cucumber one. luckily they were on sale and i got them for 50% off so i wasted [$] on them. seemed like a promising product but not for me.

        If you have super sensitive skin, like I do, I would highly recommend this moisturizer. Skin feels cooled and soft after applying. It's a little pricey but it's definitely worth it!
