Witch Hazel is a good thing to have around the bathroom. If you have excessively oily skin - you can even use it in toners. Cooling and heavily astringent. Inexpensive and readily available.

I bought this some time ago at Kroger's for $2.89 for a 16 oz bottle. I picked it up in the first aid aisle as it's good for scrapes and such. Well recently I've been using cold cream as a...

I use the Walmart brand Witch Hazel, and it is literally a life saver - I would bathe in this stuff if I could (not really, but you get my point). I currently use the st. ives green tea gel...

My relationship with witch hazel has been kind of blah. I don't find it to be amazing or life saving and I was totally one of those bad kids who uses alcohol on my blemishes while my mom would yell...

Love this stuff!! I am currently using the cheap, generic brand from Walmart, and it works great. I think it is 14% alcohol, which seems about standard for witch hazel (I think it improves shelf...

I don't know what it is about witch hazel but it's the ONLY thing that clears up my forehead acne (that I pretty much haven't been able to get rid of in years). Dickinson's, drugstore, it all works...

A must have in everyone's beauty arsenal! If you can tolerate the smell that is, reminds me of straight vodka--which is highly unpleasant. Luckily, it dissipates quickly and doesn't linger very...

I've only used one other toner before, and I found that witch hazel is a much cheaper solution! I hadn't noticed a huge improvement in my skin from the toner, so I never really found a need to try...
