The different flavours of Witch Hazel you have in the US aren'y available here so I have to use the plain ordinary stuff which I scent with essential oils. I got home from work on Friday and splashed some on my face but used a little too much, I mopped up the excess with some cotton wool and the amount of grime that came off my face onto the cotton wool was unbelievable. I did my whole face using 3 peices of cotton wool and it felt really clean, the cotton wool on the othe hane looked revolting, I never knew my face was so dirty aster a day at work! Does anyone else cleanse their face with Witch Hazel? If not I can wholeheartedly recommend it.
