[Beauty] Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner

21:30 rebecca wong 22 Comments

Toner is a very essential part in my beauty regime, and I would prefer my toner to be alcohol-free. It's not fair to say that a toner is bad if it contains alcohol, or vice versa; after all, our skin reacts differently.
Personally, I would prefer to use alcohol-free toner because my skin is really sensitive and still yet to recover from the acne scars. So, I wouldn't want to stress it out any further.

Thanks for Natta Cosme, I had the chance to try out Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner. I've heard so many good comments on this toner, and I can't wait to try it out
Thayers started off in 1847 offering herbal extracts to the medical professionals. Over the years, they have expanded the Thayers product line to ointment, lozenges and toners. I did a research on their website here, and found out toner are the only skin care they produce. Weird, huh?
I love the transparent bottle a lot. It's so much easier to keep track of my toner usage now, and I don't have to keep feeling the weight of the bottle to guess how much more toner are left in it.
Thayers Rose Petal Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera is made with rose-petal water, Vitamin E, and their proprietary Witch Hazel extract; and it's able to make your skin bloom.
So, what's so special about the toner?
  • Alcohol-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Pthalate-free
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Fragrance-free
  • Moisture
  • Cleanses
Let's take a look at the ingredients:
  • Purified Water
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Certified Organic Filet of Aloe Vera)
  • Glycerin (Vegetable)
  • Fragrance (Natural Rose)
  • Hamamelis Virginiana Extract (made from Certified Organic Witch Hazel)
  • Rosa Centifolia (Rose) Flower Water
  • Citric Acid
  • Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract
Same as your usual toner, it has a watery texture.
You can either pour the toner onto a clean cotton pad, and gently swipe across the face; or pour onto the palm and gently dap the toner onto the skin. Personally, I'd prefer to use the cotton pad because it can act as a double cleanse to clean out any makeup residue left on my skin.

My Verdict?
I like the toner a lot. My skin felt more moisturise after using it, and I notice that my makeup stays better than before. So far I've yet to notice any residue on my cotton pad, so I guess I've been doing a good job in cleansing my skin. LOL!
I have only one issue with the toner - the fragrance. It stated "fragrance-free" but it still have that floral scent in it which came from one of the ingredients - natural rose. Personally, I would prefer my skin care to be REALLY fragrance-free.
Apart from using it as a toner, you can also use it as a moisturizing mask. Damp some cotton pads or mask sheet, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Voila! You have yourself a DIY moisturizing mask.
Including the Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner, there are a total of 8 toners from Thayers:

They have some really interesting toners, and I would really like to try all of them!
