This stuff stinks soo much! I was so shocked once i popped up the cap. But it honestly works. It does shrink my pores. I dont have huge pores but I can see it if i sit closely to my mirror. I dont know about my acne or blemishes. It does reduce the redness marks left with the acne but i'm not too sure... i would def. repurchase it again. If anyone knows another witch hazel toner that does not smell then pls let me know .. thanks.
I LOVE THIS STUFF! I've used it every night and morning as a toner for the past week and already I see massive difference in the appearance of my pores and blackheads. My pores appear smaller and my blackheads are slower going away :) It's also helped with clearing up smaller acne problems as well.
I use to use the Lush Tea Tree Toner (for 6months) but NEVER got results like these. Not only is witch hazel cheaper than the LUSH Tea Tree Toner, but you get more as well.
The only thing is that it SMELLS really bad, I suppose it takes time to get use to it, but I absolutely hate the smell atm. I hold my breath when applying the witch hazel and then hold a small bottle of perfume under my nose until the product has dried on my face and the smell goes away! Haha, it works.
Definitely recommend trying this product, because you will never know unless you give it a try!
EDIT: I forgot to mention that ever since I started using this, my face gets less oily during the day. Usually I would have to blot 2-3 times a day - but now I only have to blot once, if at all!
i love this witch hazel, it removes all of the stuff that my clanser left behind! it does make my face a little dry, but that could be from my acne medication. the smell doesnt bother me at all, i dont think it has a smell.. i love it, you should try it!
I love Witch Hazel, I've been using it for about 2 years as a makeup remover. I keep it in a pretty bottle by my sink and I pour a little onto a cotton ball and wipe off my makeup. It takes it all off, even my mascara. It doesn't dry out my skin, instead it makes it feel so soft. The smell is a little bothersome, but you get used to it after a while. A cheap multi purpose makeup remover? Who knew!

Thank you witch hazel I bow down to thee. You are a real miracle worker for skin.
if anyone can tell me where to buy this product in Canada I would really appreciate it. Thanks :)
A staple in my cabinet.
Simple ingredients and it works.
Can be used for a whole lot purposes.
Thank you witch hazel, for you are a financial miracle and a blessing from the god of skin.
Ever since I've been using witch hazel (about a week now), all my pimple scars have cleared up and there has been a huge reduction in the general amount of flaws and crap on my face. I am sooo thankful for this product.
However, I have not seen a reduction in the size of my pores, which is the main function the product claims to have. It probably takes more time. I'll edit after a month about whether or not it made a difference in pore size.
The downside of this? Not much. Some of you MAY be very reluctant to use products with alcohol, but it's in there for distillation and anti-septic purposes. Just use a good moisturizer afterwards, don't be scared. It DOES make my skin very dry afterwards.
Ohh yes, how could I forget? The major downside: THE SMELL! Oh my gosh the first few times you use this you will literally want to puke. I've gotten used to it now so I barely even notice the smell. So just be very patient with this product. Don't judge it cause of the smell ;D
I like to bring a bit of this when I go jogging or walking. After I sweat a lot, I grab a few cottons and soak them in witch hazel and dab them all over my face. It gets rid of the gross sweat and oil on my face. Plus, your pimples expand when you exercise and release sweat/heat/toxins. It's the perfect time to be cleansing.
This also works great on bug bites, pimples on your back, itchy parts of your body that you can't scratch because you don't want to risk infection, as an alternative for alcohol wipes for disinfecting earrings and etc...
Ingredients: Pure Witch Hazel distilled with 14% alcohol.
Hope this helped!
