I have been splashing on T.N.Dickinson's Witch Hazel after every shave for quite a while now and this stuff is verging on the miraculous. I have had persistent red patches of skin related to old scarring (I mean decades old) that used to flare up after every shave. But the Witch Hazel soothed them down and then cleared them up. I still have the scarring but it is barely noticeable now that the redness has gone. An excellent product!
