So, what makes this toner so unique and efficacious?

“Thayers Witch Hazel toners have the highest level of therapeutic tannins, which have both antioxidant and astringent properties,” explains Miami-based board-certified dermatologist Lucy Chen to Yahoo Lifestyle. “Thayers toners are gentle [because] they are alcohol-free and therefore do not dry out skin.”

Chen says toner is a means to cleanse skin, control excess oil production and restore hydration. It essentially helps balance the skin — and Thayers’ combination of ingredients makes for the perfect blend. “Certified organic witch hazel purifies skin, balances pH and tightens pores. Aloe vera and rose petal water have nourishing and hydrating properties,” she says of the formula. “[It] contains natural ingredients and it’s very important that it is alcohol-free.”

Here’s what reviewers have to say:

It’s great for acne: “If you suffer from hormonal or cystic acne, this product is a godsend,” says a reviewer. “I cannot sing this product’s praises loudly enough. If you know all too well the frustration of having raised, itchy or painful acne that sometimes does not come to a head that can lasts for weeks without relief, do your skin a favor and try this product out for one month; you won’t regret it.”

It clears out pores: “This product has miraculously made my pores appear much smaller. I’ve bought all kinds of products that have promised to minimize pores and done no such thing. I wasn’t even expecting that from this toner, but it has made a noticeable difference.

It feels gentle: “This has exceeded all my expectations! All toners I have tried including sensitive skin and alcohol-free formulas burn my face. This is the first product that gentle, removes stubborn makeup and smells great!”

It keeps oil under control: “This product is incredibly amazing on my skin! I have very oily skin and a lot of toners overdry cause of the alcohol and pull the good oils from my skin causing my skin to breakout worse! This witch hazel actually hydrates my skin adding moisture back into my pores causing my skin to brighten and clear. I would Highly recommend you won’t be disappointed!”

Overall, it is a must-have: “My skin is renewed. Fine lines minimized, skin fresh, acne gone and it smells amazing. I haven’t had a single pimple since buying this. I use it twice a day and so does my husband. We now can’t live without it and bring it everywhere when we travel. It definitely needs to be added to your beauty routine. Don’t question it.”
