I have always used it on bruises. When I get bruises it lasts forever (nasty rainbow colours, too), but swiping the bruises with a cotton pad saturated in witch hazel helps to make them go down quicker.Last year tried it as toner after reading the reviews on MUA, didn't work for me, I got break outs afterwards. So I'll just stick to using it on bruises. :)

Frankly not the best witch hazel for my skin type. And to boot the smell was not pleasant. I used the rest to stave off sweating in the summer.UPDATE(02/06/2010): I repurchased this again since this local health food store have lost their mind in raising the prices on the Thayers brand witch hazel. I went across the street to the local small pharmacy and picked this up instead. At first I was leery about the alcohol content but I remembered the Thayers Lemon version has a bit of alcohol so I sucked it up. I forgot how cheap this stuff is. I have been using this for about a week and I am loving the results so far. My acne is slowly healing and so far no new breakouts. The smell is not the greatest but I can live with it, especially when I am using neem oil on my face. Since I am between jobs at the moment, this toner will be my go to toner for the time being. But it keeps working for me, I will make it permanent in my skin routine.Update 12/27/2014I had to stop using this because it was breaking me out horribly.

This is an excellent toner. Not only does it soothe my seb.dermatitis around my nose and eyebrow area but I haven't had a flare up since I started using it again.I used it as a teenager and was very happy with it then,but as I matured for some stupid reason I started to use more expensive brands. They all seemed to aggravate my skin,either making it more oily or triggering a flare up of seb.derm. This toner is so soothing and gentle and has balanced my excessively oily skin,I will never stray again. I must also comment that the smell does not bother me in the least like some others have commented,I actually find it quite comforting.I'm always very wary of products that are very heavily scented or knock you out with the overpowering alchohol smell. So yep this is a definite winner for me:)

I love this! It is cheap and a large bottle for the price. I add a few drops of tea tree oil to the bottle as soon as I purchase it and it is the best and most gentle, yet effective toner I have used... It doesn't strip my face, and the tee tree oil seems to make it even more effective, although I liked it without as well... It seems the least expensive products have proven to be the most effective for me...and this is a staple.

The brand I use, but only because I can have it delivered for free with my prescriptions. I'd prefer a product without alcohol, but this works well enough. Softens my skin, soothes redness, and keeps my skin looking very nice. I am actually so used to the rancid raisin smell that I kind of enjoy it....

This product has been a savior for me!! I have been dealing with comedones, bumpy skin, acne break-outs for about 8 years. I have spent a gazillion dollars on products and trips to the esthetician, but nothing brought about improvement. Six months ago, I got really frustrated and started using just original Noxzema for a cleanser and Witch Hazel for a toner...my skin has cleared up dramatically!!!! I was hesitant to use witch hazel due to the alcohol, but this brand has not had any negative effects. On the bottle it claims that it "cleanses and conditions skin without removing essential moisture." This is definitely true!!! I do have to say that I started by buying generic brands, such as Hannaford's brand, but it definitely didn't work as well as Dickinson's. I will only buy Dickinson's from now on... It is a very refreshing toner and, call me strange, but I actually like the smell...which fades away immediately anyway. My skin tone is amazing. I thought that I would never have clear skin, but thanks to the combo of Noxzema and Witch Hazel, I do!!!I definitely recommend this product...

I have used witch hazel as a toner for most of my adult life. I use a mild face wash, whichever strikes my fancy that day (Dove soap, Cetaphil, Alpha Hydrox Foaming Wash, or a baby wipe!) and follow it with a cottonball swiping of witch hazel. I am thinking that since this has an acidic ph it balances my skin. It works for me and doesn't dry me out. It does have its own unique scent, which may not appeal to many, but I've smelled it for so long that it has become one of those "scent memories." Even if it were offensive, it dissipates by the time it dries. I am still pretty oily in my T-zone and this refreshes my skin.

Im an aesthetician, and we use this to promote extractions, this really helps purging out whiteheads, along with BZK pads. I would not use this as a toner, too drying, you should never use any buffered type of alcohol.

I believe this stuff has changed my skin so much! I use a cleanser every night and then use witch hazel as a toner. Any pimple I have, will vanish by the morning. My skin looks clear and feels so much softer. I wear foundation a lot less now, because my skin tone is actually more even and clear than before. Months ago, I would never go without my foundation! It doesn't dry out my skin at all, and I have dry skin to begin with. Also, I notice I don't break out anymore, and i'm still using the same products that use to break me out. I think it's all because of this. I will never stop using this! I'm so glad I decided to try this.. I reccommend it to everybody.

yes i suppose this makes my skin softer, maybe even clearer, is gentle and removes residue makeup. but this stuff smells horrendous. try to smell it in the drugstore before you buy if at all possible. EDIT: ok ok... i give in. i learned to deal with the smell and overall this is a great toner. it's gentle and yet somehow keeps your skin clear. also... cheap. so i increased the rating from 3 to 4
