Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel

     I'm so, so happy that I discovered alcohol-free witch hazel. I'd tried the original Dickinson's years ago and it was simply too strong. I didn't need a harsh astringent, just something that cleansed a little better than a toner. Unless I've worn a heavy cream or a retinaldehyde the night before (or had a nightmare that In'n'Out closed forever and wake up sweating!), I don't usually wash my face in the morning. I believe in treating any issues the skin might have with effective products, but still handling it gently overall. And since I'm normal to dry, I just don't typically need to use water and a cleanser more than once a day.

Enter Thayer's Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel. I'd already been using rosewater as a facial spray because I'm a sucker for anything that smells of roses. The combination of the two makes for one great cleansing toner. All I do is swipe it over my face on a cotton pad, and I've got a clean canvas for makeup or moisturizer. 

Pure witch hazel is a strong antioxidant and a wonderful astringent for acne-prone people, so this "lite" version is unbeatable as a milder everyday product.

Thayer's is $10.22 on Amazon or $7.66 on iHerb ($5 off your first purchase with my referral code: BEH289)
