    Quick question
    Do I use witch hazel liberally each time after shaving, or should I only use it if I get a nick or see bumps etc?

    Use it after every shave if you want. Just like a traditional aftershave product. Use as much as you want, though I don't care for the word "liberal" :D just a little political humor, there

    I agree with Steve. It's also nice straight from the fridge in the hot summer.

    You said that was caused by something else...............

    I like witch hazel in conjunction with other products.
    Its good as a toner / sealer but lacking in moisturizing qualities.

    Witch Hazel

    I use it after each shave.

    It works well with aftershaves & lotions.

    +1. Put it in a cheap atomizer, store it in the fridge so its nice and cold, then spray it on your face liberally and let it soothe and tone your skin. Its a wonderful feeling! Then just put on ur balm or w/e
  18. that's an excellent idea. well done sir

    Ahhh...Witch Hazel. Love the Thayers. Just came into a bottle of the Cucumber and it is great stuff (thanks Dom). A nice, light, calming liquid that heals and refreshes. Every cabinet should have some.

    Which is which with the witch - with or without alcohol? I have read differing opionions, but not much. Also, how do you find the best witch hazel locally - pharmacy or grocer or???
