Why is toning so important? The right toner can:

  • Shrink pores
  • Prevent in-grown hairs (because of glycolic or other alpha hydroxy acids)
  • Moisturize
  • Refresh skin (removes dirt and oil so it can be used instead of washing from time to time)
  • Add a layer of protection (tightens skin cell gaps preventing additional bad stuff from penetrating skin)
  • Balance pH, where soap disturbs pH due to alkaline levels and triggers oil production, toner brings it back to desired levels faster and prevents that dreaded oily skin

Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel is the first product I acquired for my first official skin care regimeThree years later, I still use and love Thayers aloe vera formula because it's alcohol-free, soothing, with truly (not figuratively) natural ingredients.

I enjoy sharing with you lovely people all that I love and believe in, so many moons ago at a Whole Foods sale, I bought two bottles of Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel with the intention of giving one away. I'm finally doing it!
