Man, I was really hoping this product would work for me! I bought it a few weeks ago and used it for two days and, no joke, I broke out with two big cysts on my chin on the third day. I do not get cysts (I'm more of closed comedone/blackhead kinda gal), so I was pretty disturbed and knew this product had to be the culprit. I have no idea why, because the ingredient list seems pretty harmless. I also wasn't a fan of how it made my face feel - weirdly sticky and not at all pleasant.
Glad it works for others and really would have loved to add it to my routine, but sadly it's not for me.

This is a staple in my skin regimen. My skin feels squeaky clean after I use this and soft and nourished, unlike other toners/astringents that leave your skin feeling absolutely stripped. Regular witch hazel was doing an okay job, but this one feels much more soothing to my skin.
At about $8/-9 a bottle at Whole Foods, this is a little bit on the expensive side for me, but it's totally worth it and does last a while. I use it every day and I repurchase maybe every 6 months.
I don't understand the point of the squirt bottle cap, and the opening is too small for efficiently soaking cotton balls, which is why I gave it a 2 for packaging. I just pour it into a travel size bottle as the original bottle is too big to carry around anyway, which works perfectly.
I don't know what I would do if they stopped making this.

Given how inexpensive this product is, and how the ingredient list makes it sound like the simple, gentle and effective product for my very sensitive and breakout-prone skin, I really wanted this to work.
Well, a couple of days after I started using it, I was starting to see a few bumps breaking out from my chin, my forehead, and even my cheeks. That was unusual, because I typically only get a couple of hormonal zits at my t-zone around that time of the month. At first I thought it must be the new supplement I was taking for my health, but after checking some of the reviews here that mentions the same issues, I suppose I must stop using this wonderful toner immediately, before my face breaks out further into cysts!
Too bad I am not like the majority of the reviewers here who could benefit from the product. I went through the reviews here before ordering this toner, but I must have missed the negative reviews because I so wanted it to work!

I've used this for 3 days now and it seems to be helping my dry skin. I have acne prone/dry/oily skin and I still have not found a facial moisturizer that I can wear under makeup and doesn't break me out. I was looking for a toner that would clean and moisturizer my face so I can skip a facial moisturizer altogether. So far this stuff is exactly what I've been looking for! I will write an update soon. :)

I never write reviews for products. I am greedy and read everyone else's reviews. :) Anyway, I felt compelled to write a review for this one and believe I will follow up with some others.
This stuff is hands down amazing! I started using it on Friday with good results. It was quite a switch from my regular witch hazel - very soothing and gentle.
I have been spring cleaning all day today (since like 10AM) and felt nasty so I decided I would use my old toner (another popular witch hazel product that is cut with alcohol) to give my skin an extra cleansing. (I am combo skin, acne prone)
My skin said oh no you didn't just do that. It was red, inflamed and almost raw looking. So I put a little of the rose petal toner on, let it dry and literally turned around and looked in the mirror and was like omg, you are kidding me. ALL the redness was gone and my skin is far from perfect but it looked pretty darned good. It still feels soothed yet that toned, clean feeling you get from a toner.
This one has a very strong rose scent which I love. However, those with allergies and that don't care for scents would not like this one. I believe there is an unscented one.
A+++++ I am happy with this purchase. 9.99 @ Whole Foods for a large bottle. I hope my skin will continue to like this!

I bought this at my local health food store because I am OBSESSED with rose scented toiletries. I have never had much luck with toners. They usually leave my skin red, dry, irritated and give me some painful cystic acne to boot! However, this product has caused none of those reactions. I pat it on my skin in the morning after cleansing and this helps to hydrate and soothe my skin. This seems to of helped calm my redness which gives my complexion an overall even tone. In the evening, after removing makeup and cleansing my skin, I use this on a cotton pad and gently swipe my face and neck to ensure my face is clean. I am amazed and grateful this hasnít caused any breakouts, in fact, my skin is clearer than it has been in some time. I cannot accredit it all to this toner, but itís addition into my routine has defiantly been beneficial. I will continue to use this product as itís gentle, cheap and smells good!

this made me break....ALOT. i used regular witch hazel before and i switched to this because it is alcohol free. regular witch hazel is kind of drying but it works way better than this stuff. i use it as a cleanser at night, just apply to face and wash off, and i feel it helps keep acne under control. i tried thayers witch hazel for about 1 1/2 wks and it broke me out like crazy. once i stopped, my skin started going back to normal.i wanted to like this stuff because of the ingredients and it being alcohol free. it might work for people who dont break out so much. my skin did feel moisturized and did feel soft after use but bumps kept on poppin up:/

i use this before my workout. it's pretty light and alc free which is great! the scent is great and sometimes i use it after cleansing without applying cream afterwords. can't say i'm amazed with it though.
you can get it pretty cheap at iherb.com and they ship worldwide. if you use my code PDQ558 you get it even cheaper. enjoy!

I have very acne prone, combination skin. I have a very oily t-zone and a very dry mouth,chin and cheek area.. This toner works absolutely amazingly on my skin! Brightened up my complextion, smells heavenly and wasn't too moisturizing or too drying for my skin. It feels like I have applied a light gel moisturizer to my face! It removes excess dirt and face mask. Another plus, it's super affordable. I got mine at Whole Foods for 9.99 CAD and it contains 355mL .. Will definately recommend to others and will repurchase.

The reviews for this toner were very good on MUA and youtube. However, I think I expected a lot more. It smells okay, rose water. But I felt like it was ineffective on my skin. It just felt like I was rubbing scented water on my face after cleansing but that was about it. It did not feel especially moisturized or did anything special. I tried it out for a good 3 months. Used it right before applying my moisturizer. In fact, I felt like it may have been clogging my pores as I developed small red bumps. I really wanted this to work for me but unfortunately it did not.

I'm a makeup fanatic, and this is the only time I've ever felt compelled to write a review. This stuff is definitely holy grail material.
I have quite sensitive combination skin. My T-zone is extremely oily and the rest of my face is dry. This toner balances everything out: it hydrates and soothes my cheeks and keeps my T-zone from feeling greasy.
I also use this as a makeup remover. It's an excellent substitute for Bioderma, especially seeing how we cannot get it in the US. It's surprisingly effective getting waterproof mascara off without leaving me with unsightly raccoon eyes.
The price is amazing - you can often find this for under $9 for a 12 ounce bottle. The rose scent is my favorite!
I can't live without this product! From the other reviews I've read, it seems that a few people have had negative reactions to this product, so your mileage may vary.

Overall I think this is a good product, and I'm very pleased with how good it is with my sensitive skin. However this isn't working as well on me as I had hoped. I have combination/oily skin (normal cheeks, oily nose and oily-ish forehead) and I've noticed that this product has made my nose slightly more oily. I have noticed that my skin looks brighter and clearer though...I just hate that oily feeling. That was kind of the point in me getting a toner in the first place. If your skin is more on the dry side, I think this product would be perfect for you.

I wanted to like it, but I broke out in small pimples. It didn't irritate my skin, which was a real plus (I find their normal witch hazel is very irritating).

I been using this for the past 2 months and really love it. I have combination toward oily skin and acne prone, after I been using this magic potion, my skin quality greatly improved. My skin feel soft, pores noticeably smaller, and it does not breaks me out. I can understand some people might deters by the smell of it (it does smell a bit like grandma's perfume), but the smell go away quickly. I love this and will purchase again for sure.

Cute bottle with a cute story on the back.
I love the way that this toner smells and makes my sensitive skin feel.
It soothes and calms any redness and compliments my moisturizer.
I use it everyday morning and evening after cleansing my face.

I switched to this witch hazel (toner after cleansing with cold cream) from generic witch hazel because I was horrified to see that the generic had 14% alcohol. I had been happy with my skin using the generic but I thought it was a sure thing that alcohol free witch hazel would be even better for my skin.
Well, after about a week of use I had large pimples all over my jawline and under my shin, including a dime-sized monster. I have oily and somewhat clog-prone skin and I get the odd hormonal zit but I've never experienced anything close to these big painful cysts.
I switched back to the generic alcohol-ful witch hazel (I dilute it with rosewater so it's not overly drying) and in two days the breakout had stopped in its tracks. No new zits, existing pimples finally responding to treatment and shrinking.
Lesson learned: even when it goes against commonly held skin care wisdom. IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT.

Alas, this toner gave me horrible and painful cystic acne. Thankfully I realized very quickly that it came from the toner as this was the only new product I used on my face. I'm not sure what triggered the break-out but I suspect it is probably the fragrance.
Overall, I liked the rose scent but not the acne!

I use this as a VERY light moisturizer before working out (I like to start with a clean face, I find it helps prevent clogged pores), and also as a toner before applying my normal moisturizer. It works excellently for both purposes.
I have a lot of red/pink undertones and likely mild rosacea, which this toner has seemed to calm some. It's not a miracle product, but for the price I have been very happy with it.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Violet
the idea sounds great. alcohol free . witch hazel, rose water, glycerin, etc. I use this as a facial freshener for my makeup and it breaks me out. it also made my skin look dull. It might work better for people with dryer skin that isn't sensitive. If your pores are prone to getting clogged , this may not be the best choice. Or it could be some stuff I am allergic to in the ingredients.

This is a very good toner! I used to include it more regularly in my routine until the cold weather kicked in and I feel this dried out my skin a bit if I used it daily (which worked just fine in the summer). Hence the four lippies! So I use it now if I want to quickly refresh my skin and get rid of shine when I can't truly wash my face. My skin feels soft and clean, not tight like it would after using Dickinson's Witch Hazel. I don't feel like it ever broke me out so that is a big plus, and a little goes a long way so you get a lot of use out of one bottle. I've always been somewhat skeptical of toners but I think this one is legitimate and lives up to the hype.
