I was recently contacted by Dickinson’s to talk about their original Witch Hazel beauty products. Before I received the products to try, I mentioned that I was doing this post to a friend and she RAVED about Dickinson’s. I hadn’t heard such a positive beauty review of any product in a long time. She loved the cleansing cloths so much that she keeps them in her purse and hands them out to friends. I thought, if she had that positive of a review then it was high time I tried them for myself.
I started using the Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Daily Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths at night to take off my makeup before bed.
I’ve had great results so far and they are SO quick and easy to use when you are falling asleep on the couch and don’t want to take the time to wash your face. I have sensitive skin and Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel is gentle enough to use daily to help remove excess dirt, oil and makeup because it doesn’t strip my skin of its essential moisture. It also works as a toner to help minimize the appearance of pores, eliminate oil & shine and nourish flaky, dull skin.
Dickinson’s has been around since 1866 and they have a few beauty tricks up their sleeve. I feel like I’ve heard people rave about Witch Hazel forever and Dickinson’s helped me get to the bottom of what it is and why it is so great for your skin. For those of you that don’t know, Witch Hazel is a flower that was discovered 2,000 years ago by Native Americans. Here are some other cool facts about Witch Hazel:
- Witch Hazel is indigenous to the woodland areas of the Northeastern United States
- Native Americans used it as a topical healing solution as early as the 16th century
- The twigs and bark of the Witch Hazel plant contain therapeutic constituents that when extracted and distilled create a clear, fragrant, natural astringent
- Witch Hazel is also known as winterbloom, snapping hazel and spotted alder
- Witch Hazel flowers bloom for five weeks and open and close to protect their petals
I have super oily skin, but also very sensitive skin, which makes finding a product that both cleans and doesn’t dry out my skin a real problem. I loved using the Witch Hazel Cleansing Cloths because they cleaned my face and kept it from getting greasy again. I learned some other fun facts about how Witch Hazel affects the skin:
- The female face has an average of 20,000 pores – Dickinson’s Witch Hazel will help minimize their appearance
- You can use Dickinson’s Witch Hazel to clean your makeup brushes (72% of women don’t do this)
- Women begin to experience dry skin at age 40-Dickinson’s helps nourish skin without removing moisture
- Dickinson’s Witch Hazel has no soaps, fragrances or dyes
- Dickinson’s is 100% natural
- You can use Dickinson’s as an eye treatment by soaking a cotton round and applying to eyes
- Estheticians recommend Dickinson’s to soothe skin after hair removal
- Dickinson’s is eco-friendly
I also loved using the Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel On-The-Go Refreshingly Clean Towelettes. These were great to keep in my purse or for on the go. I may have mentioned that I walk Sport every morning before work. Before I leave I make sure to clean my face with the Dickinson’s Towlettes and they are awesome.
I think one of the best parts about Dickinson’s is that everything is American made. This amazing beauty secret is grown and harvested in the United States. I don’t know how many products you can say are all-natural these days.
