I purchased this product a few months ago on a quest to get rid of the terrible problem with breakouts which, as a 24 year old woman, I'd never dealt with to that extent in my life.

I'd also never used a toner in my life and figured it might be time, seeing as it's a pretty basic staple in most skincare routines. I picked up this one on a whim after skimming through the ingredients and finding them promising (including witch hazel, aloe vera, and green tea extract) and also after smelling the contents of the bottle and finding the scent to be pleasant.

I attribute the somewhat dramatic improvement in my complexion largely to this toner. The price is EXTREMELY affordable... if I remember correctly I got it for around five dollars for an 8 oz. bottle. The scent is refreshing cucumber melon and while it DOES linger on the skin for a while after you use it, it smells good so it's not a problem. I don't notice it but my boyfriend does when he's close to my face, and he likes it. The packaging makes this product extremely easy to use and it's also nice to look at on my sink.

So now on to what really matters... how this stuff works. On days where I'm wearing a lot of makeup, no matter how thoroughly I wash my face, when I use this toner immediately afterwards there still always manages to be some leftover makeup residue on the cotton swab that I use to apply it. NOW I see why I was breaking out so badly. My face feels cool, tingly, and refreshed after I use this. No oily film or greasy residue is left behind on my skin. Since it contains no alcohol it is not drying at all. Here are the claims:

Calms & Tones
Soothes Redness
Smoothes Blotchiness
Alcohol & Paraben Free
Redness Reducing

In my experience, all of those are true. My skin just feels so much more balanced. I still get a pimple here and there but they are not as severe as what I was dealing with and they go away much more quickly.

Also, I have noticed an improvement in the appearance of my acne scarring since using this product.

I will definitely repurchase this. Grateful that the first toner I tried was one that I now consider a holy grail product.

I just want to start off saying that I use the citrus version of this toner that's specifically for oil control.

I use this every morning and night after washing my face. It took about two or three weeks to see a difference in my skin, but it DOES make a difference.
I notice that I am less shiny throughout the day, but I have extremely oily skin and I don't think any product will change that. This toner smells AMAZING, like fresh oranges, and it feels nice on the skin--no tightness or dryness. My pores are more refined after using this too.

I have already repurchased this, and I will continue to do so in the future!

I enjoy the mild, refreshing scent of this toner and how conditioning it is. The scent always reminds me of my mom, probably because she always applied aloe-scented cream or lotion at night, and so this scent I associate with mom, which is a nice feeling. Unlike regular witch hazel, this toner feels a bit slippery when applied, most likely due to aloe. It does leave a bit of a residue, but I like that it conditions. I would wash off the skin in the evening, and the toner would come off a bit slippery at first, meaning it stays on the skin all day. I apply this toner on my chest most often. I used to apply it on my face in the morning, as a moisturizer, but it has consistently made my face red (I have normal, non-sensitive skin). In that sense, I haven't found that this toner reduces redness... It does certainly condition, and witch hazel in it, among other ingredients, helps to heal the chest rash I get every once in a while. I got it for $5.49 (8 oz) at the local co-op, which seems to be a very reasonable price for all the natural ingredients. Packaging is very pretty. I have purchased it twice, and will again.

I really do not like this product. I wanted to, because I had read such good things about witch hazel, and I specifically looked for one that was alcohol free, trying to be nice to my skin, hoping that it would start being nice back to me. This product does not make my skin nice. I didn't have a terrible reaction to it and I don't think it makes my acne worse, but it leaves a weird, sticky feeling residue on my face which is really annoying. I feel like after I use a toner if I run my hand over my cheek it should feel completely bare and baby soft and smooth. I'm pretty sure that's the whole purpose of a toner - to pick up anything your cleanser missed and leave you completely clean. After sweeping this over my skin with a cotton ball, it just feels weirdly sticky and oily. I hate the feeling.

I LOVE this toner, so refreshing! I ran out, and thought I would try a different Witch Hazel w/ Rose toner, and I want to go back to Humphreys. I will when I use this one up. Very economical, and amazing for my acne prone skin. All natural, what more can you ask for. I plan on putting some in a spray bottle and use as a face spritz during the HOT summer! LOVE THIS STUFF. PLUS, if you order from iherb.com, use code: XON769, you will get $5.00 off your first order. And, free shipping on U.S. orders over $20.00, and no tax! AWESOME! =)

I just adore this witch hazel. I have been using it for years now. I use it as a toner on my face daily. Goes on nice and gets my skin all ready for my moisturizer. : )

This is a very gentle toner with some lovely natural ingredients in it, as you can see below. It feels very gentle going on, and it is pretty soothing. The smell is mostly cucumbers to my nose, and it dissipates almost as soon as it is applied. Since I only bought a 2 oz. bottle to try out, I don't think I used it long enough to see any reduction in redness, however. I also find it a bit sticky, and in terms of oil-reduction (I have pretty oily skin during the warmer months), I have not noticed anything positive.

I've been lookin for witch hazel toner everywhere in my country and i found it online. First it said that it's a alcohol free instead they change it with natural one from grain so it still have natural alcohol in it.

I don't bother by the smell because it quite pleasant and it evaporate soon. I think it does reduced my redness. I have redness on my face due to tretinoin I use. It calms my face, I use it on my neck, chest, my back because i often get breakout n it really functioned.

I heard Thayers is even better but Imma stick to this for a while since it's cheaper. It doesn't break me out and make my skin itchy so it fit my skin perfectly but it's not a miracle product so I only put 4 lippies.
