Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner
I like using a toner after washing my face — it keeps my skin even and blemish-free. The one problem I have found, though, is that most toners include alcohol, which can be extremely drying in the wintertime. I would end up with unwanted flakes that were anything but cute. That's why I was thrilled to discover Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner ($8, originally $11). The alcohol-free formula is a bestseller at Amazon; it keeps my skin clear without stripping it of moisture.
The product has more than 10,000 reviews, and a whopping 81 percent of customers give it five stars. People claim that it helps with a multitude of problems, including acne, dark spots, the appearance of pores, and hydration. The soothing toner includes rose-petal water, vitamin E, and witch hazel extract.
The tannins in witch hazel extract act as a natural astringent, so they remove excess oil from skin without depleting skin of moisture. The rose water also helps to quench your face — plus, it smells amazing. Basically, this liquid is pure magic.
