Witch hazel is a plant with seasonal yellow flowers, and native Americans knew of the benefits. The leaves and other parts of the natural “medicine” were used to treat inflammation, whether topically on the skin or internally via teas. Today, many witch hazel products fill beauty section shelves, and for good reason. Being good for all skin types and mixed well with other ingredients for superpower effects, it’s universally loved. We’ve gathered a list of some high rated witch hazel products, some of which go beyond the skin alone.
A simple blend of ingredients, with purifying witch hazel, make the refreshing mist suitable for all skin types. Rose water absorbs oil but doesn’t over dry, and aloe adds light moisture that won’t weigh delicate facial skin down. Use as a part of a night time routine, or apply and let dry before beginning makeup application. But hey, you could just wash your face, spritz, and begin your day as the gorgeous, all natural “you”.
Also harnessing the power of roses and witch hazel together, is Mario Badescu Skincare’s take of the astringent combo. You’ll see a lot of the same benefits as the above, but this formula incorporates black rose, rosewater and rose oil, all of which play a role in revealing vibrant, healthy skin. Rich in antioxidants, the toner will prime skin for bedtime, or add an energizing touch in the morning. It smells amazing too.
