Review: Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner

Today I want to share my review using the Thayers alcohol-free rose petal witch hazel toner with aloe vera.

If you know anything about witch hazel, you know it’s an amazing skin care astringent.

First of all you need to know that this Thayers witch hazel has the most incredible beautiful smell of roses. You’re going to LOVE it!

This particular formula of witch hazel is the higher-end version that’s un-distilled with more fancier skin care ingredients and higher quality. Sure, drug store witch hazel is great on its own, but check out my review to see what you’re missing!

THAYERS Witch Hazel Rose Petal REVIEW

Which Thayers witch hazel is the best ?

Hands down, I believe the rose petal version of Thayers witch hazel is the best since it combines the benefits of rose water and aloe vera.

I’ve been using witch hazel for the past five years and I’m in love with the skin care benefits of witch hazel to say the least. Witch hazel makes my pores smaller and gives me glowing fresh looking youthful skin, especially the rose petal version.

Who doesn’t want that? Feeling like such an expert about witch hazel, I’ve tried so many brands of witch hazel to compare the quality and see if there’s a witch hazel that will give me even more beautiful skin and yes there is and it’s this rose petal witch hazel by Thayers!

You have to try it, at least give it a smell – it has natural rose petal water + added skin benefits you’ll love.

I’ve been testing different brands of witch hazel on my face and I’m in love with this Thayers witch hazel aloe vera formula with rose petal water – alcohol free.

Why is Thayers the best witch hazel?

Trust me, you want to switch to this all natural alcohol-free witch hazel. Most of all it’s organic and UN-DISTILLED witch hazel. Meaning it has all the skin loving tannins intact. And yes, full strength tannins for your skin leading to better skin.

This is crucial during the production of witch hazel, the tannins. They’re the star of the show. It’s as important as making sure your coconut oil is organic and cold pressed – keeping all the important nutrients whole an un damaged.


Thayers  rose petal witch hazel is higher quality

Regular production of witch hazel has alcohol in it and yes, with one quick swipe of a soaked cotton pad across your skin, you’ll see lots of oil coming off your face and onto the pad. I thought this was something good, well it was something but defiantly not good for my sensitive skin. The problem was it left my skin dry, tight, and stressed leading to over stimulating more oil production.

First, I want to share all the differences that have made me switch from my current drugstore witch hazel to this high quality and unique witch hazel that has added skin loving goodies. Especially if you have dry or acne-prone skin. You’ll want to switch to this version of witch hazel.

Here’s the best place to purchase this witch hazel:

Why have I waited so long to try higher-end witch hazel?

The price. I’m used to finding witch hazel at Target for really cheap… under $2.00! I like a good deal and try to budget my skin care passion, however this was on my list of things to try. I splurged and bough rose petal formula along with the cucumber formula. Personally, I prefer this rose petal water version. I purchased them on

Second, I also want to mention I paid for these out of my own pocket and nobody contacted me to pay me for a review on Thayers witch hazel. This is a skin care product I love and recommend on my own.

There’s different formulas to try: Rose petal, Unscented, original, Lavender, and Cucumber.

There’s no added synthetic perfumes that irritate skin. It’s real rose water. Many people think that because it has a scent, the smell is added perfume. This quality product is real and all natural, another reason to love this toner.

    1. Hi Jeanette,
      I don’t know if witch hazel will work for black warts. It’s worth a try. You might have to freeze it off. Have you heard of wart freezing? I’ve seen some over the counter at drug stores. Good luck!

    I have oily skin & I’ve heard a lot of different trends to use as a makeup primer from high priced brand name primers like lo’real to home remedies like milk of magnesia or monistat gel. Would the theyers rose petal witch hazel be good to use as a face primer?

    1. Hi Barbara,
      For oily skin, I think milk of magnesia would work great. However, If you want to try a with hazel, try one that has alcohol in it. This is helpful to remove excess oil and help keep pores unclogged. Also, great to blot your skin throughout the day.
      Good luck!

  2. Hi Jen!
    Thanks for reviewing this. You mentioned that there is no added synthetic perfume to the toner but fragrance is added though. Read their ingredients list.

    1. Hi Joy,
      It as listed as “fragrance (natural rose)” however they claim it is all natural made the traditional way of native Americans.Not sure why they would even mention fragrance. I’m perplexed.

  3. Can I still use my regular face wash and still be able to apply Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel On my face?

  4. Hi there!
    I’ve been living with acne prone skin for the last.. 15years and it’s only recently I tried it (after some endless research on how to minimize pores, yes my pores are huge!) After a week, i can already see the difference! My skin started to glow, my pores, not as visible! But I have one problem.. my skin started to dry up! ? I applied argan oil after thayers.. what do you think i should do or add up in my regime?
