Witch Hazel: Cheap WalMart Generic (Aaron Brands)

Item Description

"Hello Floyd, this is Barney Fife. Who's in the chair...well
get rid of 'em. I'm coming over and I'm ready for action!
That's right, I want the works...shave, haircut, witch hazel,
O.D. cologne, toilet water...If it smells I want it!"


Price - It could be better. They could pay you.

Quality - No complaints, it works like, er, witch hazel.

Fights Razor Burn - It's not a soothing foo-foo balm, but it soothes the savage shave.

Cooling Sensation - If you want that, better keep it in the fridge.

Scent - Not really, but if it's good enough for Deputy Barney Fife....

Efficacy - See "quality".

Moisturizing - Maybe a little.

No Alcohol Burn - Yes, alcohol burn. Just the right amount. Nice!

This stuff is cheap. This stuff is good. You can use this magic potion as a base for scented after shaves...just add your own smell nice device, a little glycerin if you want to get all fancy, and presto! You are Mr. Custom MacGyver After Shave man!

No knocks against the spendier, scented witch hazels. No need to invoke the famous ClubmanRob "it's gotta have alcohol to be real witch hazel" law. No need to show the bottle to anybody.

Just put on a cheap disguise, go to WallyWorld and when you get home, decant to a fancy bottle and lift your pinky a tad when you splash this on.

No one will know.

I got my bottle from Wal mart and it works but Dicksons and Thayers smell better and give me better results. I do agree with the first poster if you wanted a base for home made AS then the Wal mart brand would work for you.

I use this right after my shave and before appling AS. The smell was rough at first, but you get used to it and with a few drops of essential oil (eucalyptus for me), it really gets better!

I can't say that if I didn't use it I would miss it, but I figure for the price and the proven results WH gives it doesn't hurt to have it in the lineup.

I did decant mine to a cool old bottle with a vintage label and cork stopper, so it's fun to display it and use it!

No frills witch hazel. I put this on my face every morning and love it! It calms things down quickly and works like a charm.
