i have been in constant search for an HG toner and i have tried loads of them from L'oreal to Proactive to various dermatologist products. but my skin was as stubborn as daffy duck and spongebob combined so.. yea..
until one day i was running an errand for m mom to buy tea at healthy options. and i found Dickinson's witch hazel toner.. until then, the rest was history----for my pimples and red bumps. call it destiny.., HAHA
our unique 100% natural formula for skin care combines extracts of the witch hazel plant to thoroughly cleanse and condition your skin. Unlike other astringents, our gentle formulation cleans deeply to remove the last traces of make-up, soap residue and excess oil - without the use of artificial ingredients that may overdry your skin. Use as the final step in your cleansing routine to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and refreshed!
My experience: i got the yellow bottle, the one which actually has witch hazel extract since witch hazel is known for being an anti-oxidant and astringent which makes it very handy in treating pimples and acne. i didn't mind the 14% alcohol, the concentration is relatively mild and alcohol would synergize the effect of witch hazel being an astringent since alcohol is primarily used as an antiseptic (in english: kills bacteria). i have been using this toner for 2 months now and the only negative thing i can point at it is........... it doesn't travel well, the cap isn't tight enough for the container's "mouth" so it spills all over the place. but as far as cleansing goes, it relieved my stubborn zits and red bumps without leaving dark marks after it. also, i noticed that this product made my face less oily and yes, i can stand the smell of it. all for the sake of having clear skin LOL
will i buy it again: ABSOLUTELY not only that it's hella affordable but it's true to its claim and it healed my facial problem. plus it's organic.
