  1. Amy Hays

    I have been suffering from rosacea for years and have tried everything! I have spent so much money on products, dermatologists, and facialists. I can’t believe how this product has calmed my skin! Within 2 days my redness was diminishing and my skin tone was becoming more even. I use this anytime my skin starts to flare up and it calms and soothes right away What I love most about this toner is there is no burning or stinging sensation at all and it smells great!

  2. Christine Pratt (verified owner)

    My skin is very dry in the winter and oily in the summer. I tried this a few winters back, and I’ve used it ever since. It’s a wonderful product. I was so pleased that I tried the Lemon Witch Hazel for summer, and that gets 5 stars as well!

  3. Gidget Hunter

    This product is great for so many reasons! I use it every day for several different things!

    1. It is, obviously, a great toner, and in the summer it doubles as a moisturizer for my already oily skin. It also reduces the mild rosacea I have on my cheeks, and makes my skin look glowy and even-toned.

    2. When mixed with an oil, like extra virgin olive oil, or avocado oil, it makes an amazing makeup remover. Shake it well, apply to a cotton swab, and swipe away your makeup!

    3. It can be added to kaolin clay or green clay to make a fantastic mud facial mask. Just put 1-2 tablespoons of clay in a bowl, and add Thayers witch hazel until it is a liquid paste. Apply to the skin, wait 5-10 minutes, and wash off!

    4. It can be used as a mixing agent for pigment eyeshadows. Just get a little on your makeup brush, dip it in your pigment, and apply! Works great!

  4. Priscilla Hudson

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stuff! It smells wonderful, it makes my skin soft and smooth, and would recommend it to anyone!

  5. Allison Moorman

    I love this product! It has an amazing smell, like a bouquet of roses. Also, it really does clear skin. I have been using this for months and I have truly noticed a difference. My skin has a nice glow, and it definitely makes my skin soft. In fact, I can’t help but to rub the back of my hand on my face its so smooth. Definitely recommend!!!!!!

  6. Serene Lee

    I love this product, I have a very sensitive and dry skin. Most toner are fill with alcohol and cause my skin to feel tight after application. I love the fact that it uses lots of natural ingredients so that I know what is good for my body. It minimize my pores from the first week of application, I am going use it for a long time. By the way, I am on my second bottle now.

  7. mallery

    wonderful! truly a life saver. now, im not one to over praise a product, but this one is really a game changer for me. i suffer with red, dry skin and this saved it in ONE night. im surprised at how even my skin tone is. my redness used to show under foundation so i’d have to wear crazy amounts, but since using this, i only apply one layer. it smells divine. i calms me down, i put it on tonight after washing my face and i could say i feel more tired. (tht’s a good thing!) only downside of this product is it’s more expensive in canada. I used amazon to purchase this and it ran me $17. i will continue to buy because this is the only product that’s worked this fast and makes my skin feel great 🙂 thank you thayers!

    you can totally send me products to review. i am wholeheartedly in love with thayers now.

  8. Alicia Danielle

    This is without a doubt my favourite skin product I have ever tried! Nothing has transformed my skin quite like the Rose Petal Witch Hazel has. It was recommended by a friend and dermatologist after I had been suffering from problematic skin for about two years. I now use it on my face twice daily, and my skin has completely changed! Changes were noticeable after only a few days. Now a few months on, my pores look smaller, the texture looks more even, and the overall feel is so soft. For the first time in years, people now frequently tell me that my skin is glowing! Highly recommend this product- I’m a customer for life!

  9. Michelle

    I bought this awhile back based on some online research I did – and I am REALLY glad I did! this stuff I think will make my one and only stop for toner/astringent, it does a superb job ( I can see it on the cotton ball) yet leaves my skins moisture in tack not to mention its cruelty-free!! its such a winner for me and one of my staple holy grails when it comes to my skin regime. Ive experimented a lot with skin products and its not easy finding the perfect cleanser, toner, and moisturizer along with other misc. items BUT I must say after using other toners (Kheils, neutrogena, mario badescu, etc. ) I think I found my keeper for LIFE! thanks Thayers!! fyi all the other toners/astrigents were good BUT they are NOT animal cruelty free and have alcohol which strips your face from its natural oils (you need those to keep your skin moisturized and balanced) which is why after using them your face can feel dry and sometimes left with a burning irritation.

  10. Drea

    Best toner I have ever used! I’m a Retin-A & sunblock devotee as well as tirelessly researching ALL products and ingredients I use on my skin. This passes not only my scrupulous demands for gentle and effective ingredients, but it performs! I use it twice a day after washing my face and before applying all my other products and I have noticed a markedly different appearance to my skin. I love that it contains rose water and aloe but leaves out irritating/damaging alcohol. I even add this to my makeup refreshing spray, as a mid day pick me up, and to my clay/ACV mud masks. My pores already look smaller and my shine is kept at bay longer while working my 14+ HR shifts. Love this product! I will continue to purchase from here on out

  11. Chloe

    This product is amazing, the first time I used it I just loved it! It made my skin feel so soft and look glowy! I’m not usually a big fan of toners because they dry out my face and make it feel tight, but thayers is much better it feels so much softer and gentler on my skin, plus the fact that is has no alcohol in it is good cause alcohol just drys out your skin and wrecks it in the long run, but this product is really great, definitely worth the price! I always use it after I wash my face and it makes my skin feel and look so nice! 10/10

  12. Rebecca Devitt

    This stuff has seriously changed my skin. I bought my first bottle in July and am buying my second now(it’s December). I saw this at Whole Foods and bought it on a whim. Holy. Cow. I have combination skin with lots of scarring and hormonal acne. This toner is amazing! It makes my skin so soft and it glows from within. I have had no break outs since starting to use it. I am hooked and this will FOREVER be a part of my skin care routine. I’m just sad it took me 33 years to find this miracle in a bottle.

  13. Kate P

    I just had a baby and I felt like I needed to change my skin care routine for my dull complexion. I found this gem and when I opened the bottle at home the smell reminded me of my childhood for some weird reason and I fell in love. It’s already softening my skin and shrinking the large pores on my nose. Works great!

    • Robin Socialikeinc

      Thanks for sharing your feedback Kate! We are so glad our products could help!

  14. T Baker

    The best toner I have ever used and I love that it has organic ingredients. I have used the lemonade one and lavender, but to be honest the rose water works better for my combination skin because it’s very hydrating ! It cleans my face perfectly as well, my forehead and the area around my nose doesn’t get very shiny throughout the day anymore ! Get this stuff !!!

  15. Arianna Chan

    I’m in loveee with this to toner. I bought it a month ago at Whole Foods just to try and it smells so great and it keeps my dry acne prone skin feeling fresh and clear.

  16. Esthepany Francisco

    AMAZING PRODUCT! it is a non-comedogenic (doesnt clog pores resulting in acne) removes dullness, hydrating and leaves my face visibly soft. This product is even sensitive enough for a 10 year old!

  17. Laurèn

    I just want to let everyone know how amazing this product is and how much it has helped my skin. I was suffering from TERRIBLE hormonal acne. My cheeks and chin area were a complete mess and nothing was helping. I started using this and I am SOO glad I did! My skin looks better than it has in months and I haven’t noticed any new cystic acne spots. I’m telling you I went from having a face that I was embarrassed to even look at in the mirror to having skin I was actually comfortable enough to go to the store without foundation on within a week and the only thing I changed in my routine was adding this product. Doesn’t dry out my skin at all and doesn’t irritate my sensitive excema skin. Please try this product, you won’t regret it!

  18. Sage

    Can’t say enough good things about this toner!!! I have always had combination/oily skin and this It is the perfect balance of tough cleaning but gentle and hydrating. I’ve been using for 3 years and my skin has been totally transformed.

  19. sue montanez

    This product is amazing!!! I’ve heard about it a few times and wanted to try it out but i was always hesitant because everyone always claims to have the best toners! But this one just works miracles! I didn’t order mine off of this site, I purchased it from Amazon(sorry guys lol) and I just started to use it like yesterday and I can already see a difference in my skin, I have very oily skin, acne prone skin. I will definitely continue to use this product and buy more! Amazing work guys!!!!!! Thank You!!!

  20. Natalie

    I love this toner! I have dry skin and it works great, giving my skin some moisture it needs. I have been using it for a couple months now and will not use any other toner. Its very affordable for the amount of product. I recommend this 100%.

  21. Sonya

    Thayer’s alcohol-free toners have been are the only skincare product I’ve ever been faithful to. They’re the perfect overnight moisturizers if you just want to let your skin breathe, work very well as a makeup remover, cooldown the face when flushed, the list goes on. I’m tied between the lavender and rose petal, both smell devine.

  22. Aaren

    I have very sensitive skin and after the amazing reviews for this product and a recommendation from the health store employee I purchased it. Unfortunately I find it burns my skin. I do not know why as it is supposed to do the opposite.

  23. Ms. Layna

    Purely rose-riffic. I absolutely love this toner and the smell is divine. I use it to make luxury foaming hand and body washes in my home. The natural witch hazel astringent along with Thayer’s natural grapefruit seed/citric acid preservative makes you not need any added preservative to making products. Using it straight on the skin, you can feel the tightening and toning effect from the tannins and antioxidants. Love that it is alcohol free. I hope Thayer’s never stops creating this bundle of joy in a bottle.

  24. CJ

    Just bought this toner after reading great reviews and I’m sooo glad I did. I am 61 years old with pretty good skin but always trying to find that miracle product and I think I have. This makes my skin look way better than all the anti aging products I have tried and believe me there have been many. I highly recommend it. I love it!

  25. Julie

    I got this toner because people swear buy it I was so excited to purchase it before I started using it a had a few pimples this is a whole week using it and it completely broke me out i have so many white heads on my forehead this never happened to me, I have big huge painful pimples on my cheek and I never break out on my cheeks or forehead I’m very disappointed with this product. If you have very sensitive skin please do not purchase this. This is my very first time breaking out really bad that I can’t leave my house without being embarrassed by it.

  26. Caley

    I’ve been using this product for about a month and I have seen a HUGE improvement in my skin. My dark spots have faded immensely and I have had minimal breakouts (and I have very acne-prone skin). It doesn’t dry my skin out and feels very refreshing. 100% recommend!!

  27. Jose

    I have been using it for two months and my oily skin has now been reborn. My skin has a glow that it has never had before, my pores are smaller, and my skin toned has evened out a lot. I’m definitely a fan.

  28. Maria

    So Ive been Looking at this product from afar and always wanted to try them. I have finally managed to snag a bottle of the rose petal witch hazel and my skin has a glow that i cannot explain!!!! im in love with these products, I wish they had a whole line of soap and acne remedies similar to proactive just more natural and less harmful to the skin. Im now waiting on the lavender witch hazel to arrive soon so I can try it after my rose petal one ends and hopefully its just as great.,if you ever need someone to test run or try the products and review them please contact me!

  29. Ar’anne Zabala

    Been using the thayers toner for a week now. And sweet baby jesus, it works!!!! It’s now part of my holy grail. This toner just leaves your face glowing after use. And it clears up your blemishes and redness in just a week’s use. This is a miracle!!! Thank you, it has boosted my self confidence back and as well as the glow in my face. It’s not even harsh and what’s better is it has no alcohol. Love love!!

  30. Michelle Ables

    LOVE this product. I’ve been using it for a few months now, and I can’t remember the last time my skin was this smooth, clear, or glowing. My breakouts are much less frequent, and hardly last any time at all. I cannot recommend this stuff enough.

  31. Megan

    I absolutely love this stuff!! ever since puberty my face has been red, splotchy, and both oily and dry. Talk about a hot mess! after trying many creams, and lotions over the years, some of which were expensive, i came across an article someone had written raving about this. The price was cheap so i said what the heck lets try it. Within id say about 3 days of use my skin was already showing signs of improvements. After using it every night as a part of my skin routine the last 3ish months my skin is looking amazing! my tone is even, and i have this “fresh glow” to my face. I dont even need to use foundation anymore! I use this every night before bed after cleansing, and then apply a moisturizer, and im just amazed at this stuff! after three months im only now getting close to running out.

  32. Shelby

    After reading all the good things to say about this product, I decided to give it a try! I I have been very happy with what it has done for skin. It has helped with the redness I have from acne, as well as help get rid of my acne! It has worked amazing at controlling the oil on my face, and just making my face softer overall! I usually just wash my makeup off and apply the product and that is the extent of my skin care routine. This is all you need and it work to clear up anything!!

  33. Andrea

    This is a skin emergency saver! I have acne-prone skin and I am on prescribed skin medication by my derma: night creams, topical and stuff, plus i’ve been taking Isotretinoin 10mg for about a year now. One day, I went to the city and didn’t realize I left my medicine in the province! All I had was this toner. I had to go on for some weeks without my medication but not one pimple showed up and really, my skin was blooming! It seemed like my skin looked whiter and less oily. This toner is really amazing.

  34. Sarah

    Just finished my first bottle of this and I can not be more pleased! I love how gentle this toner is! My oily, acne-prone skin has been transformed by this product; my skin feels soft and moisturized even though I have to use some pretty drying products to wash my face. They have changed the formula since I first got it, so now it contains more witch hazel. Hope my new bottle treats my skin even better than before!

  35. Denise Doncsecz

    WOW is all I can say. I’ve been suffering from cystic acne for the past 2 years causing several trips to the dermatologist only to give me creams and antibotics to relieve the symptoms. The minute I stopped, the painful acne returned. Fast forward to early July 2018, I was going on a trip and wanted a nice cleanser for me face at night, so I picked up the travel size of Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner… Can I just tell you that my face is the BEST it’s been in 2 years. Acne has cleared up and my face seems to be brighter !!! LOVE this!!!

  36. B Benz

    My husband has amazing skin. When we first met I was so envious that he had no acne, not a blemish, and tiny little pores. But in the last 5 years, he’s developed psoriasis as well as dermatitis, and has spent a lot of time and money at the dermatologist getting prescription after prescription with only OK results. Earlier this summer it got REALLY bad. He tried the Rose Petal Thayers on a whim and it has been the only thing that has cleared up his skin, and helped keep it clear. Its a miracle. I’m ordering more every couple of months because I love it too.

  37. Lauren lemmons

    I used it only twice because, sadly it got dumped over. But it made my skin feel and look better when I did use it!

  38. Isaac

    I bought this product based off all the good reviews. So I decided to try it out. my daily face cleanse consisted of just 2 products a cleanser & a moisturizer both Aveeno products worked really good for me kept my face clear until I tried added this toner to my routine & now I am breaking out like if I’m in middle school again. I am really sad this product doesn’t work with me.

  39. Angela

    This was my only toner for years. However I recently re-purchased in Australia and when it arrived, noticed it now contains Phenoyxethanol – I’m disappointed that you have moved to using synthetic preservatives


      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. In fact, as you mentioned the safety of the formula, it would actually be UNSAFE for us to provide this product WITHOUT phenoxyethanol present. 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.

  40. Chris

    LOVE IT!! Smells wonderful, not too strong rose scent, it’s perfect. Very nice for the humid hot summers in the south, makes your face feel soft, clean, while not stripping the skin’s natural oils. Love the aloe and grapefruit seed extract in it for healing, and I LOVE THE ROSE SCENT!!!

  41. Tangela Babb

    I was suffering from
    A major break out on my face.. I wasn’t sure if it was heat rash, heat bumps or just the facial cleansers I had been using that was drying my face out and causing irritation.. I bought this product, witch hazel with rose petal and Within a week my face has cleared.. the rash is completely gone! it’s so smooth and not irritating and gives a little glow to my brown skin.. I will use this forever..

  42. Mad yo

    I tried about 6 or 7 toners, and they all terribly broke my skin out in burning hives and whiteheads. I tried this toner, as I had heard many great things about it.. I’ve only been using it for a week and I see a HUGE difference in my skin!! I had little scarring (discoloration from the hives) and this toner has almost totally gotten rid of it! My skin is not acne prone and quite sensitive, and I find this toner to be wonderful at calming my skin after my skincare routine. Not drying at all, it’s quite Moisturizing actually 🙂

  43. Allyson

    This witch hazel is a miracle in a bottle! I have very acne prone skin. I started using a two step regime which helped but wasn’t giving me the results I wanted. I read about thayers and decided to give it a try. It was one of my best skin decisions! My skin stays much clearer, and breakouts don’t last near as long when using this product. Recently I ran out and the store I was at didn’t have thayers, I decided I’d try a different brand of witch hazel. It was awful! My skin became so broken out and irritated. Back to thayers I went! Within just two weeks my skin is back to a manageable state. Thanks to thayers! I’ve got my sister hooked on this product too! It’s amazing, definitely would recommend.

  44. Kelsie

    It’s okay.. I read plenty of good reviews for this product so I decided to try it. My skin is sensitive and post products I use tend to leave my skin red. I decided to try this because it is supposed to help with redness and irritation. But I’m disappointed in this product. I’ve been using it for a while but it’s just not impressing me. It doesn’t exactly leave my skin clean feeling. It clogs my pours horribly, and it still leaves my skin red. Not too impressed with this product, won’t be buying anymore.

  45. Sarah

    This toner has changed my skin!!! I have very sensitive acne prone skin and this toner cleared my blemishes, adds moisture, feels fresh and doesnt dry. Its the best!

  46. KA

    Too bad you decided to add phenoxyethanol, a chemical preservative the Environmental Working Group has found to be moderately hazardous, to your witch hazel. I would rather have a lower percentage of witch hazel and no phenoxyethanol.

    • Carolina @ Thayers

      Hi there,

      We understand your pause about Phenoxyethanol but the inclusion of this preservative is necessary in our products to keep them safe and effective. Phenoxyethanol has been rigorously tested and at levels of 2.2% or lower – has been found to be non-irritating and non-sensitizing on skin and eyes. In addition, Phenoxyethanol does not contain parabens and does not release formaldehyde, making it a stable and effective preservative to use in our products. Our product contains many natural ingredients and water, and the main purpose of Phenoxyethanol is to halt the growth of bacteria and microorganisms. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us at or call us directly at 1-888-THAYER-1 (1-888-842-9371).

  47. Chan

    I tried this product and it completely broke me out. I NEVER get pimples or white heads, but I broke out around my chin area and nose from this product. Will not be repurchasing.

  48. Sophie

    I never write reviews for anything but I need to for this! For the past month the winter has been making my skin EXTREMELY dry. I’ve tried everything. I literally bought this toner a few hours ago and immediately tried it. My redness has calmed down and my skin is no longer flakey…it’s SO SMOOTH!!! I never thought this could work so well and this fast!!!

  49. Madison

    Love this product but I travel for work every week and the bottle leaks badly. Wish they would see the screw on top bottles at places like target.

  50. Jocelyn F

    After years of trying to find the right product, I came across this & I absolutely LOVE it!! My face has never looked better. Works amazing and doesn’t leave your skin with an oily look or feeling

  51. Sally W

    This product has been my holy grail for a year and a half…until the reformulation. It feels very different on my skin now (not soothing or moisturizing) and the new scent is almost nauseating. My skin actually looks a little red after using it. I’m so sad… this was my favorite skin care product that I recommended to everyone. Thayer’s, please bring back the old formula.

    • Andrea @ Thayers

      We’re so sorry our scent doesn’t suit you anymore! We offer an Unscented Facial Toner and Facial Mist that you may enjoy using.

  52. Denise K

    I have extremely sensitive skin and have used your products for the past 10 years. I recently ran out and went to my local target to purchase. Upon my first application- something seemed different. The application didn’t seem to glide across my skin. Sure enough, I checked my old (empty) bottle and noticed the formulas ingredients have changed. So far, while the newer formula hasn’t irritated my skin-not sure if it is as soothing.

  53. Skylar

    This is the only scent I have tried & I love it! I have very oily skin, this product helps my skin out so much. My skin is left feeling soft & cleaner than before. I finally found a great skincare routine for my breakouts & this product is a great addition:)

  54. Alexis

    Never thought i would die for a product like this one. Saw a review on youtube saying this stuff of the holy world.
    I bought it a month ago to try control my sensitive break out skin before my wedding.
    Since using it my skin has cleared up even out and more. I have spent 1000s on products over years to help my skin. Yet this stuff outbeat even the top end toners on the market.
    I use it twice a day in my daily routine and will never stop. Not i will have the perfect akin for my wedding day 🙂
    Thank you

    • Andrea @ Thayers

      We’re over the moon to hear that our Thayers Rose Petal Facial Toner has become an integral part in making your face bloom! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to leave a review. We wish you a dewy and glowing day (and wedding day!)

  55. Abby

    Made my skin burn so badly, which is sad, cuz it smells so nice and goes on so light. But ooooohhhh did it burn.

    • Andrea @ Thayers

      Hi Abby – First, we’d like to apologize for the poor reaction your skin had to Thayers Rose Petal Facial Toner. We have a long-standing commitment to creating pure and effective products but we recognize everyone’s skin is unique. We recommend applying this product to clean, dry skin. Even after always doing a test patch, skin can be unpredictable. If there is any way that we can turn your experience around please feel free to reach out to us directly at or call us at 1-888-THAYER-1 (1-888-842-9371).

  56. Julia

    I love this brand SOOOOO much! This is one of my favorite skin care products. I have combination skin so it’s hard to find a product the doesn’t overly “strip my skin” but doesn’t overly moisturize also. I also used to have random breakouts and this product really has calmed those breakouts down. The aloe vera is very soothing to the skin. This product will leave you feeling clean. It makes you have glowing beautiful skin. I love that the product does not have alcohol in it because most toners do. The rose water calms your skin but the witch hazel also tightens up your skin and pores. 10/10 would recommend this amazing product!!!!

  57. Donna Maruniak

    This product contains phenoxyethanol which is an alcohol (and one to which I am and many are allergic). Per Wikipedia”Phenoxyethanol is a germicidal and germistatic glycol ether, phenol ether, and aromatic alcohol often used together with quaternary ammonium compounds.” Unfortunately, when I purchased this through Amazon the ingredients listed did not include the real ingredients and now it is non-returnable.

    • Carolina @ Thayers

      Hi Donna,

      We’re so sorry to hear you’re unsatisfied with our Rose Petal Facial Toner. We understand your concerns about Phenoxyethanol, which is a glycol ether, and want to assure you that it is entirely safe and necessary in the inclusion of our product. Phenoxyethanol is commonly used in natural products to halt the growth of bacteria and microorganisms. Through rigorous testing on skin and eyes, we found that at levels of 2.2% or lower, Phenoxyethanol is non-irritating and non-sensitizing and our Rose Petal Facial Toner includes less than 1% of Phenoxyethanol. It is our preservative of choice as it contains no parabens nor does it release formaldehyde. We hope this explanation of why we include Phenoxyethanol provides some relief! If you have further questions or concerns, please reach out to us directly at or call us at 1-888-THAYER-1 (1-888-842-9371).

  58. Courtney B.

    I have been using this EXACT product for a little over a decade. And I love it! It cleans, it soothes, and a little goes a long way. I will continue to use this for as long as Thayers makes it! Love Love Love. I have tried other Rose Water Toners with witch hazel and without, and they never compare to this awesome product.

    • Carolina @ Thayers

      Hi Courtney,

      Soothing and cleansing are two words we are glad to hear! We’re so happy you have had such a positive experience with our product over the years and we hope you continue to do so. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!

  59. Darryl

    I recently bought this toner after reading many fabulous reviews, and I wish I’d known about it sooner. My skin is oily/combination, and this past winter, out of nowhere, I experienced a spell of dermatitis and flaky/itchy skin and redness like I’d never seen before. It was awful. I completely switched up my facial skincare routine, using only products designed for sensitive skin, and I wish I’d known about Thayer’s at the time – I probably would have seen results sooner. But better late than never. Thayer’s Rose Petal toner is unlike any toner I’ve ever used – soothing, balancing, and gentle on my sensitive skin, but still incredibly effective. The witch hazel tightens my pores and balances my skin tone, and the rose water and aloe soothe my skin and make my face look fresh, soft and…well, glowing. I’m shocked and seriously impressed with the results from this toner, and I can’t imagine ever using another (and I’ve tried several). I didn’t expect an alcohol-free toner to be as effective as this stuff is, and now I’m hooked. Brilliant product. Please don’t ever discontinue it!

    I have no complaints about this toner! I like the smell, although I am on my second bottle which I decided to get unscented and I like that a bit more. This toner has really helped fade my dark spots from acne scars and also got rid of texture on my face. I used to get little bumps on my cheeks and now they’re gone. I used this religiously ever night after I washed my face. It didn’t dry my face out too bad even after the strong acne face wash I use every night. I do still sometimes get breakouts around my period, but I feel like this toner has helped a little with my break outs as well. I have to say it took about a month to really see results. My face looks so much better! Like I said, I’m on my second bottle now 🙂

    I had high hopes for this toner because of all the positive reviews and I’ve been trying to treat my acne for years now. It felt good and refreshing for the first few days, however, I’m now on week 2 and it makes my skin burn. I have irritation around my mouth and on my cheeks. I don’t usually leave reviews but this product made my skin even worse than it was before. Greatly disappointed.

    I really like this product. Like the scent and the effect on my skin. My only request – please make it easier to open. Add a pull tab to the internal seal. Those of us with arthritis find it impossible to open without help.

    My skin LOVES this. I have South East Asian skin so I am naturally keen to tropical weather. Recently, I’ve moved to the Italian Alps and the climate here is drier and extreme cold with extreme sun. But DRY all the time that my skin as well as age has suffered. I’ve tried so many vegan products that was either too thick or not enough or my skin just rejected it. But this Facial Toner is such a blessing. Within a week my blemishes went away, it hydrated my skin, and evened out my natural skin tones. It’s really amazing and I’m flabbergasted how one dab of it in the morning makes a huge difference to my skin in the day! Thank you and please keep up the quality of your products!

    I saw this at the grocery store and purchased it on a whim to try for my teenage son whose acne had suddenly taken a turn for the worse. Wow! We started to see results within ONE DAY. He’s been using it 2-3 times a day for about a week and it has really helped to calm down his skin and his acne has subsided considerably. I intend to buy one of the astringents to see if his skin can handle it, perhaps he will gain extra benefit from the addition of alcohol. We are also very pleased with the all natural ingredients and commitment to quality and simplicity. Thayers values align with ours. Thank you Thayers!
