Review | Thayer’s Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner

Hello readers! Sadly, there’s been some heavy confusion and panic on the issue of moving into my apartment-styled dorm with my brother. Most of the students including the two of us, were given the wrong information on how to handle our monthly payment and this created nothing but panic within the family.

Until we can get that resolved, I can still try to move in, but I’ll probably have to get a regular job at a store or something to save up enough for the rent each month. It’s a drag and a harsh slap in the face from reality. . .

Oh well. I’ll figure out something. I’ve never been one to back down. Regardless of my current problems now, I have another review for you!

It’s going to be on a product from a brand that I have never tried before, but heard of in passing. This is the Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner from Thayer’s and it can be found at GNC, online and possibly from other nutrition/vitamin stores. The price is about $7.99 – $9.99 (if you have a Gold Membership card, it’s about $7.99 – $8.99) and it comes in three formulas: Lavender, Rose Petal and Cucumber.


Remember my review on the African Black Soap Toner from Shea Moisture? I mentioned that the toner didn’t really do much in terms of refining my skin and controlling the oil shine on my T-Zone. So I decided to dispose of that toner and try something new.

After eating out at a restaurant, I wandered into a nearby GNC store and saw the Thayer’s toners. I selected the Lavender one due to me liking the smell of lavender since I had the essential oil. I paid for it and left the store to try it out.

This would be a good time to mention that I had these three nasty, huge red bumps on the left side of my face due to my monthly period coming up. I also had on a light dusting of finishing powder and I didn’t feel like washing my face for the night. So I grabbed my cotton balls and the toner and made a few swipes over my face with the toner.

I continued to use this toner in my skin care regimen. To put it simply, this toner is AMAZING! When I used it on the three bumps and woke up the next morning, they were NEARLY GONE. I believed that the unfiltered witch hazel in the toner was responsible for that change and I was impressed!

Not only that, but the lavender water in this toner left my skin very moisturized. So moisturized that at one point, I forgot to put on my facial moisturizer and my face still remained smooth, clear and healthy!

This toner is a winner in my books, people! Due to the witch hazel in it, this is a great toner for oily skin, acne-prone skin, normal to dry skin and so much more! For aging skin, you could try the Rose Petal/Water formula. The Cucumber one seems like a refreshing formula and I plan on trying that one in the future!

Until next post, everyone!
