An All Natural Skin Saver - Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner

Today I'm excited to be sharing with you an iconic toner in the clean beauty world. If you've done a quick google search for an all-natural, alcohol-free toner or even briefly browsed Instagram accounts of natural beauty connoisseurs, you'll find this red-topped toner everywhere.

Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner, with nine, pronounceable and familiar ingredients, is one of the most gentle toners out in the skin-care market. It's subtle sweet fragrance brings to mind a cool springtime stroll through a fully blossomed rose garden and the witch hazel feels cleansing and refreshing on the skin without the burn or sting of a harsh alcohol based toner. Easily accessible and wallet friendly at only $10- $12 for a large 12 oz. bottle, this toner can be found in Whole Foods, Amazon, Target, Ulta, and most major grocery stores. I highly recommend you give this one a try!

This gentle toner is wonderful for sensitive skin and has been said to calm rosacea and eczema, clear acne, even out texture, and shrink pores! Witch Hazel, like its name, seems to have magical powers as it has been proven in scientific studies of its anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.

Personally, I haven't noticed much of a difference in the quality of my skin and my pores are still in want of shrinking but I have noticed less breakouts in my regularly problematic spots. And I very much enjoy the refreshing feel of the toner as it clears my pores and hydrates my skin. I'm also finding that this product muti-functions as a quick pick-me-up face mist throughout the day so I've transferred it to a small 3 oz. travel mister bottle to bring with me wherever I go!

AM SKINCARE - In the morning after cleansing, I'll use the toner on a cotton round to remove excess face oils.
MAKE UP SETTER - I mist it on as a finishing spray to set my makeup and take away any potential cakeiness from the layers of power.
AFTERNOON REFRESHER - In the early afternoon I'll spritz a light mist on my face to reset my makeup, keeping it looking fresh for longer.
PM SKINCARE - After cleansing, I go over my face and neck one last time with a cotton round soaked in toner to completely remove makeup and impurities before applying serums and moisturizers.

I've been on a ROSÉ streak! I been pairing evanhealy's Rose Face Care Kit to go with this Rose Petal Toner and I can't wait to tell you all about it. Keep your nose on the scent for the next rosy blog post!

"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." -
