I use the lavender and the cucumber. Both do what they have to do and do it well imho. However I prefer the lavender scent over the cucumber. When I first used it I felt like I threw some salad dressing on my face. I got use to the scent though and it works well. I don't think I would buy it again. I think I will try the lemon Thayers next. I would buy the lavender when it runs out.
Cucumber is my favorite Thayers product.
I prefer the toner to the astringent (although the astringent lemon is very nice).
The scent of the cucumber is milder than many toners, but is definitely cucumber. I think the cucumber has soothing properties that make it the best Thayers, even if I didn't like the scent best of the bunch.
It's awfully hard to find. I had to special order it from Whole Paycheck and it took them about a month to get it, which surprised the clerk, as she expected it to take 2 days.
There is a tiny grocery store here that carries the cucumber. So far I can only compare it to the rose (which I love). Cucumber is VERY refreshing, and I think follows TOBS avocado nicely. I also use it on my face before bed, and it makes for a very clean, moisturizing way to end a day. Awesome stuff!
