I admit I used to love Seabreeze, still do actually, but man is it drying! Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner long since replaced my obsession with Seabreeze when I was introduced to it by a friend many, many years ago.
I admit my slight obsession with Seabreeze was that exciting feeling of swiping a soaked cotton pad over my face and just staring at all the gunk that clung to it after. And I think in high school most all my friends and myself swore it was doing something miraculous for our face. Yeah, the miracle was it was soaking moisture from our skin leaving us a little too dry and tight but when you’re a teenager chances are you’re dealing with oily and acne thus Seabreaze is like a dream come true.
Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner has long since replaced my odd addition with Seabreeze. It’s cheap, effective, and although I admit to using a variety of toners and mists, I still come back to this good old fashion remedy.
Witch Hazel is an excellent and natural astringent and all the better of you can find and alcohol free version. Thayers produces many of their witch hazel toners formulas with zero alcohol and plenty of glycerin so your face feels soft and hydrated after use.
I typically use it after washing my face just in case my cleanser missed any dirt, oil, or makeup. I simply soak a facial cotton pad, swipe it across my cheeks, face, and neck, and follow up with my nightly skincare. In the AM I use it to prep for moisturizer as it adds a nice level of moisture to my face so my moisturizer sinks in fully, it’s the perfect prep for any moisturizer. In the Summer, you can use it in place of your daily facial cream should you have oily skin as it has just the right moisture without over doing things.
Of course, it also has a variety of other uses. Witch hazel is effective at treating ache or oily skin as it tightens skin and mattifies. I use it under my eyes as well by soaking facial cotton in it and placing it under my eyes to reduce puffiness. It’ll tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of larger pores and seal in moisture for those with drier skin especially during the winter months.
Thayer’s Rose Petal Witch Hazel has a delightful Victorian Tea Rose scent and a cool, refreshing feel on my skin. As I mentioned, it does not contain alcohol so you’re getting all the great benefits of Witch Hazel sans the dryness and tightness you might experience when using drugstore astringents.
Aside from the beauty benefits you can also use it on small wounds as well as a variety of other things!
Absolutely love the variety that Thayers offers and the very budget friendly price tag too!
