Thayer’s Lemon Witch Hazel

Henry Thayer

I love all of Thayer’s Witch Hazel formulations, but my top two favorites are the Rose and Lemon Witch Hazel.  I have reviewed the Rose Witch Hazel previous, so please take a read! Today I will talk about Thayer’s Lemon Witch Hazel, which was equally as delightful to use.
Witch Hazel blended with Aloe Vera, Lemongrass, Blackberry, Grapefruit among other ingredients left my skin incredibly fresh and clean. What I love about all the Thayer’s Witch Hazel formulations is that they are not over drying whatsoever. The Lemon formulation is definitely purifying, and in my opinion better for normal/combo/oily skin, with that being said, I consider all skins to be in constant change, with seasons, life, hormones, climate etc. So if your skin is feeling oily, blemished or dull, this formulation can work wonders for you. The natural Lemon scent is amazing, and really wakes up the senses.

After only one week of use, I noticed that my pores were tightened,  my acne scars were faded and my blackheads were reduced. I also used it on my legs after waxing for several days and I did not get the usual redness, irritation or ingrown hairs! Overall I am very happy with the results, and this is for sure a staple in my regimen along with the Rose toner for dryer days.

Thayers Natural Remedies- Rose Petal Witch Hazel


Using Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner was such a wonderful experience. Infused with rosewater flower, certified organic witch hazel, aloe, vitamin E and other all natural ingredients, it left my skin baby soft. I felt fresh, clean but not tight or uncomfortable; my skin had a ‘rosy’ glow afterwards and it felt very smooth. I not only loved the feel of the product, but the natural rose fragrance was calming and made me feel cozy and pretty! I noticed my sporadic pimples eventually dissipated and overall my complexion looked healthier. My dehydration lines were diminished, and my hydration was improved.


I have used other Witch Hazel toners and found them drying and disappointing, Thayers was surprisingly splendid! They have multiple other varieties including Lavender, Lemon or Original. I chose Rose because of its calming and moisturizing properties, and my skin has been feeling a little parched this Alberta Fall/Winter. This product is also extremely soothing so it is ideal for people with sensitive, reddened or even rosacea prone skin. I would highly recommend this product for anyone, but especially those looking for a simple, budget friendly and effective product.
