Ok, as a toner for the face, I find this product to be too harsh. I have oily/acne-prone skin and I HAD thought that this toner should be good for my skin. First time I put it on, it stripped my skin so much that my skin actually over-compensated by producing even more oil! I literally could feel the oil building up on my face. Anyway, subsequent uses appeared to improve, when my skin adjusted. And then, bam, more break-outs. Upon closer inspection of my face, I realised that what the witch hazel did was it dried out the outer layers of my skin, which gave the appearance that my skin is improving (acne seemed to have dried out), but really, the acne is still active in the inner layers. So, all in all, I just don't like this for my face. Maybe if I use this just every alternate day, it'll be better, but I've had enough of it. Now, you may be wondering why I have it 4 lippies anyway. It's because although this product is crap for my face, it is GREAT for everywhere else on the body. I especially love this as an after-epilation treatment. I'm incredibly prone to in-grown hairs and enlarged, inflammed pores on the legs because of the epilation. However, the witch hazel has done wonders to calm the skin down and drastically reduce the incidence of in-grown hairs. So yes, it may not have worked for my face, but it works pretty damn well for my body. So 4 lippies for this!

Nice toner, natural, and cheap! I use this each night after cleansing to remove any extra traces of makeup, dead skin cells etc. It's a nice part of my cleansing routine. It does the job without irritating my skin- no stinging, no stripping the moisture. It does smell kinda nasty but once it's applied I don't notice it. No crazy skin side effects which is a good enough reason to keep using it. I will keep buying this, but it will be awhile before I run out!

I'm never without this product which I use as a toner before moisturizing and makeup every day. I wash my face at night and only use the toner in the morning. Sometimes I have added different essential oils to the product for fragrance and for various skincare elements that the oils provided-- but sometimes I have used the product straight. I've been using this product about 5-6 years now-- maybe longer. I'll never be without it.

I should have reviewed this a long time ago, but, after discovering this on this website. I am a daily user ever since. I like that it is a natural, but very effective toner. In my experience, most natural products lack an active ingredient that makes an obvious difference, so they seem less effective. Example, salicylic acid, which is included in most alcohol based toners to exfoliate skin. This product in all its natural glory, is a wonderful astringent and face refresher that erases all residue or oiliness without using alcohol (or only about 14% alcohol)! It makes your skin feel clean yet normal with a slightly tightened feeling without the dryness. It seems to really prepare your skin for any moisturizer or treatment that you apply. Permanent beauty staple for me.

wow. this stuff is fantastic. whenever i see a pimple coming on, i put some of this on a cotton ball, apply it to the pimple, and a few minutes later, the pimple is noticeably smaller. by the end of the day, the pimple is gone. it doesn't irritate my dry skin, either. dickinson's is perfection.

My 14 year old use this for acne. He had tried everything before this and nothing worked. He uses this twice a day on a cotton ball and his skin is clear!

So after you get over the smell of this stuff, it is super great. I use it as a makeup remover and in some DIY masks and it does a great job of removing my makeup without drying out my skin. It also helps to reduce my breakouts.

This does smell absolutely terrible, like old prunes. BUT It gets rid of any makeup left behind after my cleanser and prevents and heals pimples. Witch hazel does the job for removing any bacteria or dirt that would cause pimples, the only reason I can't give it 5 is my skin is too sensitive for it; while it doesn't dry out my skin terribly, it aggravates redness so I only use it on my cheeks, forehead, and chin where my skin is more 'tough' and tends to break out. If I use this as an all over toner it dries out my combo skin which in the end makes it more oily, but this would be very effective for those with more oily skin. And the price can't be beat; I got it at Target for ~$3, and this will last me at least a year.

I love this product! It's absolutely fantastic, my favourite toner of all time. I have quite oily skin, especially on the T-zone of my face. The biggest problem i have about my skin is the blackhead area on my nose (they're not actually blackheads but "black shaded" pores. This happens when the oil in the pores come into contact with air, causing it to turn black). This problem of mine has frustrated me ever since senior high school. I have tried heaps and heaps of cleaners throughout my teen years and none of them has helped - none! Witch hazel has saved my skin - it literally refines pores making them shrink. After cleaning my face with warm water and of course a cleanser, i apply the witch hazel with a cotton ball. I can say that around 10 minutes after application, the size/colour of the pores become almost invisible. I have being to dermatologist, done facials but none has helped. Recently, i have come to the realisation that only cleaning my skin won't do the job - i have to cleanse and find a way to close the pores so that the pores remain clean. And witch hazel is the product which keeps 'em closed. Highly recommended! <3

I've picked this up and put it back countless times, in hope that I could get the Thayer's. However my local GNC always seems to be out of stock and I finally just went with Dickinson's since it's available and half the price at the grocery store. The one thing that I really didn't like was the smell, but I found that if you keep it in the frig it not a problem. As a toner I didn't see the results like I did with LUSH toner tabs, but it does do it's job. So I'm going to switch back a forth between the two since the toner tab (left-overs) has such a short shelf-life and more $ in the long run.UPDATE: I finally did get the Thayer's witch hazel but started having mini break out. Switched back to this and it cleared it up in a few days.(01/01/2011) I'm still using this twice a day, I've purchased the Sephora Liquid Dispenser Bottle to put this in and it works out great. Oh I don't have to keep in the frig anymore, because I've become desensitized to the smell.
