11 uses for Witch Hazel

IMG_0234I had no idea how many uses for Witch Hazel there was until I did a little research. I just got Witch Hazel in stock for $3.69. So I wanted to share all the different uses for Witch Hazel with you!

1. Acne fighter

Witch Hazel is a natural astringent and reduces inflammation and decreases oil. You can use Witch Hazel as a toner and consistent use should help acne.

2. Reduce puffy eyes

Witch Hazel tightens skin which can help get rid of bags under your eyes. Soak cotton pads with Witch Hazel and apply over closed eyes for five minutes.

3. Treat varicose veins

Witch Hazel is known to constrict blood vessels and reduce inflammation and swelling. Just soak a cloth in witch hazel and apply it over the area you want to treat. Repeat daily as a natural way to minimize the appearance of varicose veins.

4. Heal bruises

Since Witch Hazel reduces swelling and constricts blood vessels, it is perfect for speeding up the healing process of an unsightly bruise. Soak a thin cloth in Witch Hazel and apply in over the bruise several times a day.

5. Refresh skin

Any time your skin feels hot, oily, dirty, or you just want that clean skin feeling, use Witch Hazel, which tightens pores for a smoother appearance. Just dab some Witch Hazel on a cotton ball or pad and get rid of all the impurities on your skin.

6. Lock in moisture

Witch Hazel gets rid of excess oil but it also helps eliminate water loss and improves hydration to the outer layer of skin. This makes it an ideal moisturizer to use right after you get out of the shower to seal in moisture and fight dry skin.

7. Treat razor burns

Applying Witch Hazel to irritated skin with a cotton pad moistens the area and helps soothe razor burn.

8. Treat sunburn

Spritzing Witch Hazel on the affected area or applying a thin cloth soaked in Witch Hazel soothes the inflamed skin of a sunburn.

9. Ease eczema and psoriasis

Since Witch Hazel has anti-inflammatory properties it will ease the pain, itching, redness and scarring that’s commonly associated with eczema and psoriasis.

10. Diaper rash ointment

Witch Hazel is great for sensitive skin because is doesn’t irritate, which makes it perfect for treating areas like a baby’s bottom. Use a cotton ball soaked in Witch Hazel to help relieve your little one’s diaper rash. Apply 2-3 times a day to see quick results.

11. Bug bite relief

Applying Witch Hazel to bug bites stops the itching and burning.


Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Facial Lotion

a_4f36fa871f2dfI got this Daily Facial Lotion this week on my load and I just happened to run out of my normal facial moisturizer on the same day. So I thought I might as well try it out. I don’t normally like cocoa butter products because I’m not too crazy about the scent, but this moisturizer is labeled ‘Fragrance Free,’ which is right up my alley. The bottle also says this product is for sensitive skin, reduces redness, is lightweight, and calms stressed skin.

I’ve been using this moisturizer for about a week now and so far I love it. The one downfall is the smell. Although it says fragrance free, there is still a slight scent, but it isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t linger at all. The first time I used this I squeezed about a nickel sized amount of the lotion onto my fingers, because this was how much I used with my previous moisturizer, and when I started rubbing it in I realized that I had used WAY too much. That night I used only a pea sized amount which was perfect to thoroughly coat my face and neck. I like that it covers so well with such a small amount because I use moisturizer twice a day and I’ve always wished it would last longer. I also like that this product absorbs pretty quickly, so I don’t have to wait too long to put on my makeup, and it doesn’t dry out my skin or make it oily. I am probably going to buy another bottle before it is gone, because I have no idea if it will be available again. I would definitely recommend this daily calming facial lotion to others, since I love it and it’s a pretty great deal, 3.38 ounces for only $3.99!
