This clear witch hazel toner comes in a transparent plastic bottle packaging with safety flip đứng top opening. It does have a really strong pungent smell which is beyond my tolerance for the first few minutes và I really don’t remember if I ever smelt such a pungent smell before, but anyway, it stays for a short time period, so no issues.

My Experience with Dickinsons Original Witch Hazel:

I am really impressed with this toner considering it is so cheap yet naturally formulated and I feel it sets the bar for other brands in the market. It really helped my weird oily/acne-prone skin from getting worse. Currently, we are experiencing dry and scorching summers, which simply means that if I skip moisturizer, we end up getting dry flakes and if I use moisturizer, I over up with shiny and oily face within a few hours, pathetic! Thankfully, I have discovered skin care regimen which works lượt thích a charm on my skin, especially in summers & this Dickinson’s witch hazel toner is certainly one of them. I can definitely notice the difference of using natural toner on my skin as my skin feels smooth, soft yet clear without those nasty red burning spots or dry flakes.


I am also impressed to see that it is way mild & gentle on my skin whether I use it generously or sparsely on my skin. I use it every day after cleansing my skin & I observed a difference after 1-2 weeks of using it. My pores did appear smaller and free of black/white heads unlike earlier days though credit also goes lớn my other skin care stuff, but this toner certainly worked in conjunction with those products. It also evaporates quickly off my skin leaving it smooth và oil không tính tiền though I cannot stand its pungent smell. It never caused any breakouts and I didn’t feel any dry/flaky skin since I started using it.

It can be easily used in conjunction with any other skin care stuff (natural/chemically derived ones). I also use it as my facial toner at times after coming back from scorching sun outside và it feels really soothing và refreshing, and I need not follow it up with any lotion. It works great post scrubbing/acid peels, tried và tested on me! I often use it after Dr. Dennis Gross’ Alpha Beta Peel Pads & it never reacted on my skin nor gave me red/bumpy skin like other toners. In fact, I feel it did help in changing the texture of my skin from weird oily/sensitive to lớn just oily I feel.


I can’t imagine my day without a pop of zit here và there, but after a month religious usage of Dickinson’s witch hazel, I am certainly enjoying clear skin days, irrespective of my sleep/eating habits for the first time ever in summers! I am really determined khổng lồ continue with it during winters for it is very mild & gentle và it won’t rip the moisture off my skin, which makes it ideal for my skin all year round. I wholeheartedly recommend it lớn every beauty, it is certainly a keeper for oily/sensitive/combination/acne-prone skin. I am seriously hooked to lớn it, already purchased my second bottle.
