Hi guys,

I have been MIA for a lil while due to health problem (Even doctors get sick as we’re human too). It have been a bumpy ride to recovery but I’m good and healthy now and ready to take over the world~~ muahahha.. nope, not as dramatic but I am happy to go to my little happy place filled with beautiful makeup, skin care and all girly products.

All the way form America, Thayers has been producing wonderful beauty care products since 1847. Thanks to the Native Americans, this oldest toner contains a great natural ingredient: Witch Hazel. Native Americans have been using Witch Hazel extract by boiling the stems of the shrub and producing a decoction, which was used to treat swellings and inflammations. Witch Hazel extract is really good as a natural astringent to shrink and reduce pores too.

Today I’m going to share my full, in depth review on Thayers product. There are two formula of similar but not the same skin care product which is Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner and Astringent. Both are amazing!

From carefully reading the name of Thayers toner you would notice that the toner contains:

1) Rose Petal

2) Witch Hazel

3) Aloe Vera

Understandbly these are the three ingredients are going to heal, replenish and soothe the skin.

Thayers remarkably soothing toner is made with rose-petal water, enriched with vitamin E and their proprietary Witch Hazel extract.

Aloe Vera extract may helps with soothing and cooling the skin. Hence, Thayers Rose Petal Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Toner is great for sensitive skin or acne-prone skin like mine.

Thayers Rose Petal Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Toner is Alcohol-Free, Paraben-Free, Pthalate-Free, Hypoallergenic and Fragrance-Free.

The best thing about this toner is the lovely, romantic Rose Petal scent that I love. It is refreshing to be used on morning and the scent calms you down by the end of the day. I feel that it moistures and cleanses the skin well, leaving my skin feeling refreshed and well prepped for serum and moisturiser. This has been my favourite toner for the last 2 weeks- really good!

Thayers Lemon Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Astringent

Thayers witch hazel toner and astringent_4474

Thayers Astringent is a more effective in controlling oil and shrinking the pores of the skin. It is more abrasive but due to the natural ingredients it is gentle enough to be use on daily basis.

Thayers Lemon Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Astringent is a fresh-smelling, gentle astringent that cleanses and refreshes the skin with a delightful lemon essence. It can help to tighten pores and smooth skin. The Lemon scent is fresh yet moist, effective in oil control and shrinking the pores. It is also exfoliating, prevent and remove pigmentation, while promoting skin metabolism, hence the added anti-aging effect.

This is favoured by my husband who has a more rough, manly skin. I only use this once or twice a weekly especially if I am breaking out. My husband told me that this helps reduce the greasy feeling of oily skin remarkably. He love using this as a after-shave but patting the astringent lightly on chin area. Plus, he loves the refreshing lemony scent.

  1. Hi Dr Zatil,
    I am looking forward to buy this Thayers toner soon, but my husband doesn’t really like the rose scent. So, which one would you recommend to me in conjunction of my combination skin type? How about the Cucumber version?

    Thanks in advance! I love how you featured photos in every steps of using it.

    • Hi, my husband personally use Thayers toner too as we both have oily and acne prove skin. He use Lemon scent and he loved it. Cucumber has a refreshing scent. I think it is pretty unisex.

  2. Hi.Can i get this from common pharmacies like guardian or watson or theres some special stores that i need to go to?

    • Thanks for dropping by. So far i have seen Thayers in our local pharmacies like Watson/Guardian. I once saw Thayer toner in (I think) Watson’s in Singapore but not KL. However Natta Cosme has the full range and offer fast, efficient delivery service. Usually I’ll received my order within 2-3 days only. http://www.nattacosme.com/Thayers

Let me know what you think! :)
