Why I Love Thayers Witch Hazel

Thayers has ben around since 1847, & in 1989 Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera as born. I’m sure Doctor #Thayer would be proud to still see his brand on store shelves today 🙂 I started using witch hazel about 2 years ago & I absolutely love how it makes my skin feel. It really helps remove the hard water from your skin & all the leftover makeup.  I was running low on my lemon toner so I purchased a new bottle of the original astringent. What I love about these toners is that they all contain Aloe Vera which is extremely beneficial for the skin

How I use Thayers: 

After cleansing my face I put Thayers on a cotton round & go over my face, neck & décolleté. This removes the dirt, oil, & makeup that my cleanser didn’t remove. This toner does not leave my skin feeling tight & stripped. My skin feels moisturized & clean.
FullSizeRender-89 I always use the toners that contain SD Alcohol 40-B, however they also have alcohol free toners.



Please note that SD-40 alcohol is not the same as the much harsher ethyl or isopropyl alcohol (both forms of rubbing alcohol) It’s high-grade purified grain alcohol, & not synthetically produced.


To tone or not to tone….






Yes you do need a toner.

Toners help skin return to its natural ph level. PH is the balance between acidity & alkalinity. Skin is at its healthiest when its slightly acidic. Acid prohibits bacterial growth that can cause acne. Alkaline skin is more prone to wrinkles & sun damage. A toner also assists penetration of treatments and moisturizers. If you are interested in seeing results from your serums and moisturizers, tone before using them.

Another benefit of using a toner is to get the hard water residue off of the skin.  Chlorine and hard minerals are left on your skin after you rinse off the cleanser products.  These minerals can dry your skin & cause wrinkles.

Purple Shampoo

Need help removing brassy tones to reveal a platinum blonde? Try purple shampoo. Don’t be scared of the purple color, your hair will not turn purple. It will help counteract those dull brassy under tones to bring out a more vibrant, clear, blonde. If you look at yourself in the mirror and wonder “Why is my hair yellow?” then you need to try this, I have a feeling you’ll love it. You can find it online or any beauty supply store in your area.silver

Apply with a cotton ball or soft pad to cleanse, soften, refresh and moisturize skin. Use anytime throughout the day as a softening refresher. You can find this on Amazon or Whole Foods. This stuff really gets all the dirt & makeup off your face & it doesn’t make your skin dry. I even believe it takes away wrinkles !!!! (jumps in air)
