This is the review of Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner:
Product / Quality:
Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner is a light yellow toner with a very mild scent that’s perfect for refreshing and cleansing your skin through the day. It doesn’t dry out the skin so it’s perfect for combination skin that tends to be dry on the cheeks. Also because it doesn’t dry out the skin, it’s also perfect for oily and acne prone skin because it won’t stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more oils, thus making your skin even oilier.
The Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner also contains aloe vera leaf juice which will soothe and calm any skin irritation that you might have. It’s especially great for inflamed acne because it’ll help with the swelling and it’ll calm the redness.
The Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner comes in two scents. Actually to be precise, one of them is Rose scented and the other one is unscented. We haven’t tried the rose scented yet, but we’ve read many reviews that say that the rose scent is very mild and pleasant.
The unscented one that we have, doesn’t smell of anything in particular, it just has a really faint floral scent which we assume is from the witch hazel itself. But all in all, the scent is really mild and pleasant, so people with sensitive skin and people who doesn’t like strongly scented cosmetics will definitely enjoy it.
Both versions of the Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner (the unscented and the rose scented one) come at a same price which is quite inexpensive for the amount of product that you’re getting. We’e bought the Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner at iHerb and it costs only $5.14 for 12 fl oz (355 ml) bottle. But iHerb quite often has a promotion on these two toners so you can probably buy it for a lot less. For example right now the toner is just $2! Nothing can’t beat that.
Organic / Cruelty Free:
Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner is a completely natural product that contains a lot of organic ingredients. Also the product is pH Balanced, it’s suitable for all skin types, the company is cruelty-free, it’s also has eco-friendly packaging and it’s made with biodegradable ingredients.

The Madre Labs Witch Hazel Toner comes in a transparent bottle with a very nice looking vintage style label which gives the product and really nice look. But one thing that is really awesome is the cap. The white plastic cap doesn’t look much different than other plastic caps but it is. It lets just enough product out and it doesn’t allow spillage and waste of product. This way you can pour just enough product without wasting it and your product will last you a lot longer.
