The Body Shop Cucumber Freshening Water: £4

Firstly I think I need to start off by saying that you can no longer purchase this item as The Body Shop has discontinued it, much to my annoyance. About five years ago now I had a huge obsession with The Body Shop and had purchased nearly all the lines in store. This cucumber water was probably one of my favourite items along with the Body Butters and Hair Creams (post coming soon). 

The thing I love about it is that I find it a good cheap alternative to my usual toner. When times are tight but I need an effective toner this one always does the trick, in fact it is more than just a toner because it can refresh your skin during the day too. When I was on holiday this was a number one essential in my beach/pool bag because it is really good for giving your skin that clean feeling boost. 

It smells fresh and I find that it doesn't tend to sit on the skin which is really nice. It has that soothing cool effect which is great if you are hot and bothered. 

Does anyone know of a good alternative?
