I realize how much I have come to rely on Witch Hazel as a way to cap off my shave. Indeed I apply it to my face and neck and even behind my ears...and my skin has never looked and felt so good. I have all the Thayers flavours, but it seems I rely on Dickinsons WH that I buy from Walmart as my daily splash. I even put some in a small spray bottle and use a few squirts as my deodorant. This is one of those wonder products that serves many purposes. I can't imagine a shave without my trusted WH. I did some reading and it turns out the WH has been around as a herbal remedy for a long time.
