This is the only toner I use on my face.
It really picks up all the residue left over from my cleanser and does not dry out my skin.
Gentle enough to use around the eye area and I have never had a problem with irritation.
I find its great to use on acne spots and keeps the area clean and promotes faster healing.
Witch Hazel is a natural astringent which is good for healing acne, insect bites, small wounds and bruises.
Can also be used as an aftershave by men, just splash it on your face.
This is a really good product with multiple uses.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product it is so versatile and has so many uses. The smell was strange at first but it goes away after it dries. I use it for my face as soon as I have a break out and it is gone within 2-3 days. Although it has alcohol it is not drying. Leaves my skin smooth, clean and fresh.
-antiseptic for cuts and scrapes and after shaving (great because it does not burn skin even if placed on open cuts)
-anti itching for bug bites and poison ivy
I will ALWAYS keep a bottle of this stuff around the house.
I used Clinique's Facial Lotion for years until I was just fed up with the price. Then switched to zia's toners and then Thayer's witch hazel with lemon and aloe. Loved the Thayer's since it was cheaper and had the moisture of the aloe and the refreshing feeling and scent of the lemon. Still though it clogged my pores since it left a film on my face. Then I decided to try out Dickson's and I love it. Keeps my skin clear and clean and great for hot days when my skin ups the oil production. I'm sure in winter this will be too drying, due to the hight alcohol content, but for now it's great. Also the fact that there's only TWO ingredients in this and it's under $2 ? Forget Clinique and the others I'll buy this and if need moisture I'll add some vegetable glycerine to it! Great stuff!
I LOVE this product. I've been using it for about 10 years +. Its a staple of my cleansing routine. Its absolutely brilliant! A couple of times I have fallen victim to great marketing and tried other, more expensive toners, only to return time and time again to this product. Highly recommended and a bargain.
AWESOME!!! I have been using witch hazel for about two months... I squirt it on a cotton pad and wipe gently over my face after washing as a toner. Gets rid af all residue without drying out my already dry skin ( even though it contains alcohol). It doesnt smell great, but who is sniffing your face after you use it anyway?!?! I put moisturizer on afterwards, which fades the smell and locks in moisture. I also have a spritz bottle with 50 % witch hazel and 50% water in in that I use as a mist to set makeup or whenever my skin feels dry... have had less break outs and overall healthier looking skin since I rediscovered this miracle of nature!
I have used this product for about two weeks and am so glad I tried it! My skin really does well with a second step in my cleansing routine. I have really oily skin so I feel I need that something extra. This is it. It finishes the job of removing any makeup my cleanser left behind and keeps my skin feeling fresh and clean. I have not had any issues with overdrying. No causing any breakouts and seeming to help any I have. Great product!
This is a staple for me. It works to gently tone & cleanse w/o drying, and keeps zits at bay. It's cheap & natural, and reminds me of the olden days when women used herbs & stuff :P
There's a slightly funky smell to this product. But, if it helps to keep my complexion even and clear of blackheads and pimples and doesn't cost a bundle, do I give a flying flip? Nope. I live with it and grin whenever I look in the mirror at my clear skin. Here's what I do: each time I brush my teeth I wash my face afterward. Then, to clear away any residue, I soak one of those quilted pillow thingies with the witch hazel and rub it all over my neck and face (focusing on the T zone). Thereafter, I apply my trusted Cerave lotion and Kiehls Avocado eye cream. Works like a charm, I tell you.
this is a good, cheap toner! i have to use it every night
i love this stuff. i have combination skin and this stuff keeps my skin looking normal all over. the smell isn't all that great, but nothing major. i will definitely repurchase.
