I love witch hazel!!!
I got the worst breakout ever back in the day and was going to buy a toner from the grocery store. I read the ingredients at one line, and they were all primarily witch hazel! I ran to the drugstore and bought some- less than 2$ later, my perfect toner! girls, save the money and your skin!
Why must companies put so much alcohol in products? This contains a harsh amount and resulted in red, irritated skin. My pimples did not reduce and the existing ones looked worse than before. I used this for 4 months + while noticing this but I liked the fact that it removed any make up left after cleansing which is why I kept using it. I've realised now that I have very sensitive skin and that I need to avoid alcohol as much as I can. I wouldn't recommend this for use on the face unfortunately.
I'm on my second bottle of this stuff! Even though it smells like reeeally strong vodka (lol) it doesn't bother me too bad. It removes oil, doesn't feel sticky , and leaves my skin feeling clean. It's great for treating breakouts too. For the price, you can't go wrong!
I didn't really see any change in my skin after using this. I apply this after I wash my face with the dove beauty bar and pat dry. I use a cotton ball to wipe it all over my face and wait for it to dry. For some reason it makes my skin feel sticky and tight.
Pros: gets rid of excess oils, is gentle enough to use after exfolliating.
The main thing I didn't like was the smell
This is refreshing. I liked to mix a little lavender essential oil. However it can be quite harsh, so make sure you moisturise.
Dickinson's Witch Hazel isn't any different from the no-name witch hazel you can get in the first aid aisle of your local drugstore. The only difference is that it costs more. Save your money.
This product is really AMAZING! O_O
This is one of the products that really help to reduce the amount of my pimples and acne. I think the only downside was the smell. But, will go away after 5-10 seconds. Really affordable as well. It really removes all the residue in my skin that my facial wash didn't remove. A must have for everyone and every skin type! I Love This!
They say curiosity killed the cat; in my case, curiosity killed my SKIN. This was the WORST mistake I ever made. I have slightly oily skin and this DRIED OUT my skin to the deeper layers. After 4 uses nightly, I went from having zero wrinkles to WRINKLES on my forehead, between my brows, and around my mouth. I had to do a retinoid night treatment twice, an AHA treatment another time, and two raw honey masks in order to re-plump my skin to its original non-wrinkle state. I still look slightly aged. Good god. NEVER AGAIN.
I read on a medical school website that witch hazel, when applied topically in experiments, caused skin to shrivel and prune, due to the high tannin/antioxidant content which absorbs all the inflammatory moisture, hence it is good for rashes and fungal infections that thrive on moisture. It is NOT good for skin if you want to maintain a youthful appearance. This has 14% alcohol in it too which decreases collagen production and causes free radical damage to cells. Try something else like DIY green tea toner or Aubrey Organics aloe vera as a toner. You have been warned!!!!
I've bought quite a few bottles of this, even have a backup at home. The smell is weird, but I can get past that. It's about $5 or $6 for a big (compared to other toners) bottle at Wal-Mart. My favourite thing do with this is add tea tree oil to help with breakouts. Also, during the day if my skin is getting oily, I'll use this and my skin feels refreshed. Overall, it's a great natural (?) toner for a great price.
m just using cetaphil as face wash and this as toner. Wow! I wasat first hesitant to buy this but when I started using it and tonight's been my third day, all my breakouts are gone.i can't believe something this cheap would really be able to clear my skin up in no time. I think I'm gonna purchase more of this when I run out.thank God :)
