Flower Power. Thayers Rose Petal Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Toner will make your skin bloom. Thayers remarkably soothing Rose Toner is made with rose-petal water and our proprietary Witch Hazel extract.

Rose petals are full of natural oils and sugars that help restore dehydrated skin and bring out a natural, dewy, glowing complexion. The natural astringent properties of rose petals work in tandem with witch hazel, tightening pores, controlling oil production, locking moisture in, and keeping free radicals out. It’s also full of Vitamin C, which is crucial for collagen production, strengthening skin cells, and fading blemishes and scars.

I don't know what it was specifically that Thayers Witch Hazel toner did but it sure earned its rightful place in the beauty circles I belonged to. Whereas toners used to be for extra cleansing of the pores, toners are now perceived to be the moisturizers and hydrators of skin, too. It's like water for dehydrated skin and several weeks into using it as just that, I feel like my skin is plumper, smoother and happier. Witch Hazel has been known as a natural ingredient to purify the skin over the years but the rose petals have also been slowly creeping back in to the beauty world.

What I Love About It:

  1. Alcohol Free. Gone are the days that I like the feeling of stinging is on the face. I used to think that stinging meant it's working. I'm well way over that now. Thayers has no feeling whatsoever and feels fresh and light on the skin. I have combination skin for reference.
  2. The Rose scent. It's fresh and floral without smelling like our grandmothers, since we're not yet grannies.
  3. No breakout. YEY! :) If anything, I find that drying products are most likely to break me out and this one definitely did not.
  4. Locally available at your nearest Healthy Options for PHP670.

INGREDIENTS: Purified Water, Certified Organic Witch Hazel Ext Blend (Hamamelis Virginiana Extract (Witch Hazel*), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Filet of Aloe Vera*)), Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Rosa Centifolia (Rose) Flower Water, Fragrance (Natural Rose), Citric Acid, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract

I've nothing to hate about it except I wish local retailers accept back their products' empty bottles for recycling.
