Stay cool as a cucumber, whatever the weather with THAYERS® Cucumber Facial Toner. This gentle toner is derived from a time-honored formula, developed by Thayers to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and balance the pH level of skin. In addition to containing soothing Cucumber Essence and certified organic Aloe Vera, this unique, proprietary blend also contains certified organic, non-distilled Witch Hazel that’s grown exclusively for Thayers on a family farm in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

  2. Jill Kawchak

    Oh my goodness. I just got the most wicked sunburn of my life two days ago and was searching for another product I bought in the states that isn’t carried in Canada when I happened upon Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel. I’m in bliss. No sleep for two nights because of a burn! I put this on and instantly felt relief. What an awesome product! You’ve got a convert!

  3. Alessandra Pelusi

    This is the most amazing product! Truly! I’m 29 and I’ve been having occasional breakouts for years and nothing I tried helped. Even a lot of so-called “natural” products had skin irritants like fragrance, parabens, etc. I decided to try this a couple weeks ago and my skin instantly started healing and now I have no new signs of blemishes! My boyfriend is now hooked too! (I have combination-dry skin and he has oily skin, but it’s a miracle product for both of us!) I do a swipe on a cotton square after I wash my face (or just to freshen up mid-day) and my skin instantly feels more “comfortable.” My boyfriend uses it to freshen up his face after work and after shaving. This formula is perfection; I would definitely give it a try! Thayers- thank you!!

    I was never much of a believer in toner until I hit middle age, and now the Thayer’s cucumber witch hazel toner is a must-have in my daily skin regimen. I have dry skin, and need an alcohol free product that won’t remove moisture from my skin. The product is very refreshing, with a pleasant cucumber scent.

    Been using Thayers toner for a few years; the formula has been changed and now phenoxyethanol has been added. Why change the ingredients?


      We want to assure you that the inclusion of phenoxyethanol in our formula is absolutely necessary and unavoidable. We recently upped the witch hazel % in our formula (something that was highly requested by consumers), and in doing so, the addition of phenoxyethanol was necessary in order to ensure the quality and longevity of our formula. As you may or may not know, phenoxyethanol is a commonly-used preservative in natural products. Its chief purpose within our formula is to fight off the growth of bacteria. Our formula contains a good portion of water and a variety of nutrients, which makes it an incredibly hospitable breeding ground for microorganisms. Phenoxyethanol is vital for halting the growth of these microorganisms and ensuring our consumers’ safety. Phenoxyethanol is our preservative of choice because there are no parabens, nor does it release formaldehyde. The preservative is present in our formula at less than 1%, much lower than tested levels resulting in sensitized skin (2.2%). What’s more, it’s included in the Handbook of Green Chemicals and is also Whole Foods Premium Body Care Approved. We must take the measures required to keep our products safe for use. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns!

    Nice to spray on sunburns. Would you consider offering the product in a spray? I can transfer it, but I like your pretty label.

    • Andrea @ Thayers

      Hello, We’re happy to let you know that this product is also available in a mist!

  7. Rahul Jain

    I had dry Scalp issues (Like itching, redness & flaking). I have sprayed light mist of this product on my scalp 2hrs before headbath. It reduced my scalp irritation. redness & buildup. Can I continue to use this product on my hair ??? I didn’t experience any hair loss issues. I have done this 5-6 times soo far.

    • Andrea @ Thayers

      This is safe to use on the scalp, but ultimately we recommend consulting with a dermatologist or doctor. We’re so happy to hear you found this additional use for this product.

  8. Glenn Helley

    I shave with a DE razor . The perfect finish after a shave . Refreshing 🙂

  9. Tomato the roasted chicken

    So I just got this two days ago and I already love it! In just two days, my acne was way less visible and now has almost dissapeared! Not to mention it was soooo refreshing. Like it says on the label, I felt “as cool as a cucumber” after using it. I imagine that it must feel amazing to put this stuff on when having a sunburn. I also love the scent which smells excactly like a cucumber (obviously) but not in a gross way, in a fresh way. I bought a mini version of this product and I feel like I will go through the bottle pretty fast! I use this after washing my face (before my moisturizer). My face usually felt really dry and tight back when I didn’t use toner but now it just feels soft, moisturized, refreshed, and not oily. My face is normal in my cheeks, forehead and chin, but my nose always get oily. When my nose starts to feel oily again (at around the middle of the day) I just take a cotton round and wipe it al over my face. Oil gone! This is simply a miracle product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Rosenda Bustamante

    I love using witch hazel, this products helps with my skin breaking out. I used it before I put on make up and creams. It is refreshing and nice on the skin. Good for any cuts or irritation on the skin.

    I’ve been a loyal Thayer’s fan for about 2 years now, and have stuck with the Rose Petal version all this time. With the colder months coming up, I wanted something a little more hydrating, so I purchased the Cucumber for a change, and I don’t think I’ll ever stray from it. I have extremely reactive, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and while I love the Rose Petal version, I think it may suit skin types that are less prone to dehydration than I am. With just one swipe of the Cucumber toner, I felt actual hydration imparted onto my skin, my irritated spots looked 50% less red upon application, aaaand I’m hooked. The super fresh scent is a much enjoyed bonus. I hope you never stop making these amazing hydrating toners, I don’t know what me or my skin would do without them!

  12. Marcel

    I love it so far. I have combination skin more on the oiler side. And very acne prone.. this toner calms my skin down and reduce the redness. And if i I’m having a bad breakout like a red angry pimples. This make it calm and it goes away within a day or two. Holygrail.

  13. Katie B

    I have some of the most sensitive skin out of many people that I meet (eczema, acne prone, combination skin that is allergic to practically everything). I live in a dry, cold climate that is harsh on my skin and often leaves it red and dryer than normal. After reading several reviews and hearing great things, I decided to try out the cucumber toner. W O W! Within one use, I noticed my skin was softer and my acne was less raised and pronounced in my breakout areas. After my second use, I noticed my pores seemed cleaner and less visible— again, no allergic reaction or negative effects. This product is truly wonderful, and after a few weeks of using it my skin is looking better and better. Truly a wonderful, naturally effective solution to a lot of everyday skin problems.

  14. MichelleC

    I had bought this one for a bad sunburn. Love the relief it provided. I have been using other facial toners, and all gave me milia and red tiny bumps. I was looking for something natural. All the beauty products have such a long list of chemical ingredients, which is such let down. I forgot I had this in the fridge and started using it as a toner. In 2-3 days I saw the changes. My skin was softer, and much more hydrated. I am in love with this. I still have the older version which doesn’t have phenoxyethanol, hopefully when I get the next bottle it’s still as good as the one I currently use.

    • Andrea @ Thayers

      Hi Michelle, Thanks for your note! You shouldn’t notice a difference in any future product.

    Oh HELLO Cucumber toner. By far the best I’ve ever tried. Will forever use thank you!! LOVE

    • Carolina @ Thayers

      Hi Emily,

      So great to hear you are a fan of our Cucumber Facial Toner!


    I shave my face the old fashioned way, with a double edge safety razor and a generous splash of this after each shave eliminates irritation. The Cucumber and the rose petal actually work very well within most Artisan shave soaps, enhancing the “spa” experience. I now use this on all areas of dry skin – an absolutely exceptional product!
