I love this stuff! I have adult acne and it helps keep it under control without drying my skin since it doesn't contain alcohol. I love the scent even though I'm generally not a fan of floral notes. Those that think the rose petal smell is too strong would probably have better luck with one of the variants that don't contain it - Thayers also makes an aloe vera witch hazel, along with a lavender one. Though this stuff can be pricey at times, I was able to get 2 bottles for $15 on Amazon. Not a bad deal considering those bottles will last me at least the whole year!

I really like this stuff. It will not work miracles on your skin, as in getting rid of wrinkles or eliminating blackheads, because it's a basic, gentle product. But if you want a toner to refresh your face without drying it out, this is a good option. I often use it after cleansing with a cream cleanser. I always feel like this gets rid of any residue, without being harsh.

I am very sensitive to scent and I find this very appealing. The rose scent is natural and regardless, it fades quickly.

Good, clean ingredients, lovely retro packaging, and you get a lot of bang for your buck.

This toner helped to refine the texture of my skin so much. It costs around $12CDN at my local health food store but the size of it is pretty nice at 355ml (I wish it was 400ml though).

The toner has no colour and smells like freshly cut roses. The smell lingers for about thirty seconds before dissipating. The spout on this bottle is awful and so much product spills out, so I go through this stuff in three weeks or less. I bought another bottle and fitted that with a spray nozzle and the toner lasted five months.

When I first used this toner it stung my face but I suspect that was because my skin's moisture barrier was compromised. After the first use, this toner didn't burn my skin. I use it twice a day after washing and it removes excess oil, cleanses, and hydrates my skin. Occasionally I would spritz it over foundation to take away the cakey look.

My skin looks so different compared to before I started to use this toner. My skin looks much more refined, smooth and glowy. I really love this stuff and I will repurchase it as long as it's available.

It drys out my skin and therefore breaks me out...

A great toner. I have been using this for years. I bought it one day because the label said the maker of this product was always told by people that she looked 10 years younger than she actually is. A great marketing ploy because it sold me! I use it every night after washing my face with Dr. Woods black soap. I put a small amount in a cotton ball and apply to my chest, neck and entire face. It works great to get the last bits of makeup off every night. After applying I can feel a cool tingling feeling on my face that just feels like my skin is being rejuvenated. And the light rose scent is an added bonus. And it's alcohol free so it's non-drying. Then I apply a very light moisturizer. I also have very sensitive acne-prone skin. Highly recommend.

I really wanted to like this, because of the hype and the large bottle/cheap price. Unfortunately I'm with the reviewers that got irritated skin. After using this my skin looks red, dull/dry looking and slightly itchy for 2 - 3 days. I previously used several other brands ok containing combinations of witch hazel and rose water - so its just this brand I've got issue with. I don't think think this is a good quality one for sensitive or older skin.

Okay this stuff is pretty much amazing!! I was really hesitant because of the few negative reviews that said they broke out in cystic acne or had a burning sensation...I think those people may be allergic to the rose fragrance because for most (and myself) this is the most calming toner ever!! As with any new product, SPOT TEST FIRST! I was previously using a ACV toner but I hate the smell of vinegar and it was a little too harsh for my skin. This stuff smells amazing, is super calming to my sensitive skin and even moisturizing to my moderately dry skin. I use it after I oil cleanse and this takes off all the makeup that oil cleansing didn't get (yes, I still see makeup and dirt on the cotton round when I use it!) it's like 10 bucks for a huge bottle at sprouts or whole foods and I'm assuming it should last a good 3-4 months at least before I run out, so it's a good value. Some reviews said their bottle is glass but mine is plastic, and I haven't had trouble with the cap leaking although I did decanter it to a small glass spray bottle instead. New HG toner for sure!!

I absolutely love this stuff, and use it for just about everything. Primarily, however, I use it as a toner after I remove my makeup and it helps get the last little bits off while calming and soothing my skin. I have dry skin and this does not make my face feel tight or dry after I use it, which is a definite plus. It also smells wonderful and helps take down any irritation or redness on my skin. Witch hazel is great and can be used for SO many things, so I always have a bottle around. Regular old witch hazel works fine, but I prefer this kind because of the scent and the addition of aloe which makes it extra soothing and hydrating. The only cons are it is kinda pricey compared to regular witch hazel, and the packaging is kinda bulky and unrefined.
