Why You’ll Love Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner - Rose Petal
Having good skin can have an impact on first impressions and self-confidence, but luckily there are products like Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner that can both clean skin and improve its appearance and texture. Made from natural ingredients, this herbal toner is one that you can feel good about using. And, best of all, it really works.
What is witch hazel?
Witch hazel is a compound produced from the leaves and bark of the same named shrub found in North America. With its cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s become a common component of many skin and healthcare products, such as Thayers.
The Thayers story
Thayers was created in 1847 when Henry Thayer M.D. opened a laboratory on Main Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. At this lab he produced a newly designed line of herbal extracts that he would soon sell to medical professionals.
In 1855, the American Institute of New York awarded Thayers a silver medal for excellence in preparation of fluid extracts before the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Association further awarded the company in 1856.
By 1875, the company published the “Descriptive Catalogue of Fluid and Solid Extracts in Vacuo” that listed more than 800 of their products, which were marketed to the public. All were herbal-based infusions, syrups, poultices, wines, etc. Prominent among these products was Fluid Extract of Witch Hazel, which quickly rose in popularity.
Today, that product is now known as Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner, and is available in many scents to choose from: original, unscented, cucumber, lemon, peach, rose petal, and lavender.
How to use Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner
Witch hazel has been used for centuries as an antimicrobial substance. When applied to living tissue or skin it’s known to reduce the possibility of infection, sepsis, or putrefaction. As the main ingredient in Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner, this plant-based compound can help people achieve great looking skin without the need for putting manmade chemicals on the body.
Thayers’ formula is of high quality that clean deep into pores, helping your skin look and feel its best. Try these methods when using Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner to get the best possible results:
- Add to a spray bottle, and spritz on a clean face to help refresh skin and keep dirt away. Or, dab on your face gently with cotton balls.
- Try as a makeup setter, providing a clean face for longer-lasting results.
The benefits of Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner
You can get fresh, clean skin that looks amazing and is soothed from stress and cleansed of toxins by using natural products like Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner. There are plenty of benefits that make it stand out as a great beauty product:
- Natural ingredients: Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner is made from only natural ingredients. Even the fragrance used is natural rose essence, sourced from essential oils instead of synthetic perfumes. It’s easier to feel good about what’s being put on the skin when you know exactly what’s in the bottle.
- Added aloe leaf juice: The inclusion of aloe leaf juice helps provide a soothing experience that rejuvenates the skin and helps to reduce irritation.
- Alcohol-free formula: Although this product deep cleans, no alcohol is used in Thayers’ toner. This makes it gentler on the skin and removes the harsh smell that often comes with traditional toners.
- Cruelty-free: Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner is made without any animal products and without having to test on animals.
Other great Thayers products
Treating your skin to a more refreshing, natural toner is an easy way to improve natural beauty. And while Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner is an excellent option to try, their line is much more extensive. No matter which product you choose, all of these can help improve the appearance of skin in a totally natural way.
This astringent uses natural witch hazel to fully cleanse the skin, removing oils and contaminants. With extended use it can help create natural, healthier looking skin and possibly lead to less acne and blemishes.
This is the original Thayers formula. With the addition of lemon it can help wash away skin contaminants—revitalizing the face and body—and provide a fresh citrus scent that’ll awaken your senses.
For those who don’t care for the scent of rose petals, this alternative uses the same time-tested formula but with a lavender scent that can help calm body and mind, all while toning the skin.
For users who prefer to tone skin without any added scent, this original formula could be just what you need. It brings the great benefits of Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner without any fragrant oils.

This stuff is amazing and it smells nice too!
Delightful Skin Toner!
I have aging, combination skin, prone to blemishes. After hearing so many friends use & recommend witch hazel as facial toner, I decided to look for an 'organic' version. I also knew rose water is valued for it's therapeutic benefits to the skin, so after some research, I decided to give Thayer's Rose Withc Hazel a try. So far, I love it! I use it on my entire face, neck and chest. Refreshing, softening, completely non-irritating with just the right amount of rose scent (in my opinion). I 'splash' a little all over clean, towel-dried skin, patting it on evenly, and while skin is still moist, apply my moisturizer. Perfection! I will be buying again & again.
will buy again!
first time trying this product and I absolutely love it as a face toner. I can even use it near my eyes with no stinging!
Feel nice and gentle with this toner but the rose smell is not that significant.
- Sarah Krolman
Refreshing & revitalizing. I put this product in a spray bottle and spritz it all over my face and chest when I wake up after my facial routine. And this is the icing on top of my cake, as if a make-up setter for a clean face. This makes my skin feel tingly and sometimes sticky if added too much. But for the most part, it has improved my facial texture and the confidence to go out in public bare face as a person who struggles with acne.
Love this product!
Gentle on my skin, leaves my face clean & shrinks the pores. Also use in my homemade aerosols along with essential oils. Fantastic!
- Mary Noreen
I don't use toner very often, but when I have (with this one), it leaves my skin feeling reinvigorated and freshly clean. No really, when I'm having a non-shower bad hair day, this helps just as much (if not more than) washing my face.
staple face care item
improved skin texture/tone
Makes skin feel great and the light rose scent is soothing, as well. I'm a for sure fan. Will buy again.
This toner is gentle on skin and is very effective at removing anything your cleanser left. I usually use argan oil cleanser to remove makeup, then apply this as a toner before applying my nighttime serum. I also use it in the morning before applying moisturizer. I'd definitely recommend it!
Love this stuff!
I can't believe how well this works! It removes dirt you didn't even know was there, even after using soap it still removes dirt/oil from your face! Should be a staple in anyone's must have items! (Oh, and the smell is very nice and subtle, not over powering in the least!)
I will never not use this. The smell is divine, and my skin loves the ingredients in this gentle toner. I also use this as a refreshing spray (just pour a bit into a little spray bottle) during the summer heat.
My one complaint is that the new packaging is a bit wonky, and the lid to the cap broke off the first time I opened it. Not the end of the world, but not as good as the original packaging (although it does look nicer.. but who really cares as long as the product works, which it does!)
This stuff is great!
This is the best smelling witch hazel I've ever used. I love using it! It smells so refreshing and it lingers throughout the day. It's like putting spring on your face.
I use this on my skin morning and night, and whenever I feel like a refresher. It is wonderful, feels great, and it has made wonderful improvements in my skin!
Love, love, love!
My skin has never felt better! I use this product as a facial toner, and my skin feels amazing. No more burning, itching, peeling or dry skin. I love the scent too. I am a customer for life!
The real deal
This is worlds apart from the witch hazel you get at the drug store - not at all drying. Makes a wonderful toner and the fragrance is lovely.
My absolute favorite toner!
I love the Thayers brand because of their natural ingredients & appreciate the alcohol free toner options. I have oily skin that is also very sensitive (especially on my neck) so I try to use less harsh products there. I originally tried the non-scented version of the toner & had great results. It removed so many impurities that my makeup remover and cleanser missed but didn’t strip my skin. I also get a little sensitivity when it comes to fragrant skincare but the rose scent is very subtle and natural and I’ve had no adverse reactions to it. Thrive had the best deal on this product that I’ve seen so I’ll be repurchasing and stocking up!
Great scent and leaves my skin soft and clean
I absolutely love this product. The smell is so amazing and the price is great. If you want radiant healthy soft skin this is a must for your beauty regimen.
Great product at a good value. And love the light rose sent.
I wear a lot of eye makeup but I have not used any kind of soap or makeup remover in years. I use liquid coconut oil to remove most of my makeup and I follow with this toner to remove what is left. I just love the smell and how gentle and effective it is. It seems to be hard to find so ordering at Thrive is great!
i love this product. i have sensitive skin, so the first few uses caused my face to get a little red, but i've been using it for years and it works better than any other name brand toner I've ever used. It grabs all the dirt left behind after washing.
I'll never purchase any other Toner!!!
I haven't used a toner on my face in years and I WISH I had known about this product sooner!
I use this on me & my children's faces and our skin LOVES this toner! It leaves our skin soft ALL day long & it smells sooo good! I always make sure to use this product in the AM and right before bed and it never lets me down. My face stays moisturized which is a big deal for me because the last toner I used always left my face dry. Because of that I stayed away from all toners for years. I'm so glad that I decided to give this product a chance. I'll never purchase any other toner. THAYERS is it for my household!!!
Smell is so good and mild to my skin. Love the price on this valuable thing!
Wonderful & Old School
Love the way it feels, my skin thanks me for sure and the smell of rose water is lovely in all ways
Alcohol Free Witch Hazel Toner
Tremendous healthy and excellent product. I use it to make insect repellent for my window screens.
- Kari Ann Owen
This is the best toner ever. I love the smell & it makes my skin soft while removing any residue left after oil cleansing.
My skin is dry around my mouth and this really helps
This works wonders for Poison oak, Ivy, and Sumac. Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera are amazing, but combined bring relief. Also, this works wonders for acne.
This product is absolutely the best toner and cleanser.
Leaves skin feeling velvet soft
I buy 3 bottles at a time
Great for dry skin
I use this every evening after removing my makeup with a cotton ball. And it seems to calm my skin down and really hydrate it before i apply my moisturizer. Also i love the smell!
Tones but doesn't dry out skin. Smells just like roses :-)
Most Gentle Toner Ever!
My favorite toner so far! The smell is absolutely AMAZING and I feel incredibly refreshed after cleansing my face with this!
Amazing!! Clarified my skin without the burn! No matter what, no burn. So refreshing. My skin is the best it has been in years
First Time Purchasing - Will Buy Again!
This is the very first toner I've ever bought, after much research and consideration. I have combo-dry skin, so I load up a cotton ball and apply a thin coating of the toner on my face, then let the product air dry. This has made my skin blemishes lighter, my skin more moisturized and more dewy looking! Also, I want to note that I live in a medium to small sized town with good air quality, so there's not as many free radicals that can harm my skin.
Very refreshing! Leaves my face clean and soft! Smells lovely!
I've never used Witch Hazel before I purchased this and I absolutely love it. It smells great- I use it right after I wash my face
I switched from department store brands to this witch-hazel toner a year ago and feel a noticeable difference on my skin.
The packaging has changed and I did not receive the bottle in the image. Instead, its shorter and rounder. I think I prefer the taller bottle as pictured.
This is a lovely product.
Great Item! Great Price!
Thayers Witch Hazel
Love it! I started using about a week or so ago and my skin feels soft, clear and hydrated. Highly recommend it.
Seems to work
I add this to my toner and it doesn't have too strong of a smell. Great for my skin.
I never knew about this brand until I saw it at Thrive! The smell is incredible and so refreshing! And no harmful chemicals. Thanks for bringing good natural cosmetics to this site!
I have rosacea and mild acne with combination skin and recently switched from my olay toner to a korean herbal product. When my redness and more pimples came back, I sought out this toner after hearing good things about it. My redness has been greatly reduced and so have the pimples and acne bumps. Would recommend! Also smells wonderful and you get a lot of product for the great price~
(I received different packaging from the one pictured here but after a quick search learned it was in fact the same product)
5 stars for hair rinse, 2 stars for face product
I bought this for soothing my acne and minimizing pores/oil production. I will say, using this on my face for a month (2-3 per day) has not increased my acne but I haven't seen that my acne/pores have benefited from this product either. It is nondrying and does smell very good; it feels very nice, too, if you place it in the fridge and use it as a refresher throughout the day. My face does feel soft in the areas without acne and I have found that this adding this to my vinegar/water mixture after shampooing my hair was the best use for this product. My hair is softer and more manageable (I have thick-ish, past the shoulder hair that is naturally wavy/curly). It also neutralizes the vinegar smell, though the smell of rose doesn't last long itself.
Miracle for sensitive skin
This stuff is seriously awesome. I have extremely sensitive skin that gets painfully dry and cracked on my face during the winter. Not only has this completely cleared up that problem, which I usually have to fix by slathering on cocoa butter five times a day, but after using this for a month now I can actually see the tone of my skin evening out and the once oily large pores on my cheeks and nose have actually gotten SMALLER! I honestly didn't think that was possible. I cannot state enough how much I love this stuff. I don't even need to use a cleanser except to remove makeup, I can just wipe, rinse, pat dry and moisturize and I look great. If you're wondering whether you should buy this stuff, GET IT.
Love this Toner
I did not feel it shrunk my pores but maybe that takes more than 7 treatments. I do feel like my face feels tighter but not dry at all and this one blemish that continues to come back even though I am in my mid-50's has stayed away and my skin looks healthier.
I am not a beauty product person, but I do love this product! After I wash my face I apply with a cotton pad and it really balances my combination skin. My pores appear smaller and the smell is so refreshing. Not too overpowering and invigorating!
Thayers rose petal witch hazel
This product is awesome just gave a friend of mine your link to order some ....it's not sold locally for her to buy so I sent her the info to order from Thrive market ....great product
- Judith A Bradley
Youngest Skin, even in AZ
I get many compliments on my skin, and I am 58. I often get told I look 15-20 years younger. Been using rose petal witch hazel for at least nine years before bed. I love the fresh rose smell I have before I go off to sleep!
Oil Skin Be Gone!
During these summer months my skin has been relentlessly oil. Within 4 days of using Thayer's once a day I have been 99% oil free. My pores have shrank & the light Rose Petal smell is to die for!
Shrunk pores, controls oily T zone
Besides the lovely light fragrance of this toner, with continuous long-term use, it has reduced my large pores and helps control my oily T zone. Great addition to my beauty regimen.
I Adore This Toner
I love this stuff ~ i pour a little bit into my hands after washing my face and rub all over my face and neck immediately before moisturizing, without letting it dry. My skin is so much happier when i'm using it ~ and as i'm prone to breakouts, happy skin is very important. My sister and mother use it now, too. I also use it after shaving or waxing, or for a pick-me-up when i'm too busy with the kids to shower. I am just delighted to find it here on Thrive, and at such a good price, too! Now i never have to be without it.
Works great for pores
I tried this for my large pores, and I'm very happy with the way it makes them appear smaller. It also doesn't dry out my skin - it actually makes it feel clean and invigorated. This is a great alcohol free, better-smelling alternative to other witch hazels.
