Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Review

For those of us out there with oily skin, a good toner is a pretty standard part of our beauty routine. The problem is that many toners contain alcohol, which can actually cause our oily skin to produce more oil Witch Hazel Uses For Silky Smooth Skin– the last thing we want. (If you have normal or sensitive skin, some toners can dry out your skin so this is for you too!)

Thayers Alcohol-Free toner, infused with Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera, is a fabulous product, and just perfect for oily (and combination) skin types.

It leaves your skin feeling and looking soft and smooth. For me, the fact that it left my forehead clear of any shine or greasiness, was pretty much a deal-maker; I can’t think of going a day without it now.

Pores look smaller and overall, my skin looks healthier and younger. Love, love, love it!!!

Application: Dampen a cotton pad with Witch Hazel and stroke it across skin, the results are amazing!

  1. Hi Cj-
    As a life long Clinique Clarifying Lotion #2 user, I was hesitant to try something new but i was willing to give it a try.
    I was very surprised by the difference between the alcohol vs. a non-alcohol toner. My face felt great after using the thayers witch hazel. I think I could have skipped my primer. Big change for me. I have used the witch hazel for the past three days and must say I will not be buying the Clinique toner anymore.

    Thanks, Renee
