witch hazel

Recommended Posts

i bought some alcohol free whitch hazel a few weeks ago and now im in the middle of a breakout but im ending my third week of the regiment so i figured it might be that. But iv read on here that which hazel can be irritating and cause breakouts. Anyone got any ideas?

I used witch hazel a long long time ago before I entered the crazy world of acne topicals....my acne was just starting to get "noticeable" and I tried it for a little while...it didn't clear anything up but it seems like I remember it feeling really good on my face....but I was not using anything other than witch hazel...if it was combined with benzoyl peroxide then I could see it being a problem...either as an irritant or by making you break out...I would suggest trying the regimen by itself like the person said above, that way you can truly see if it works for you

I had mild acne. Something I usually battled during my period (TMI I'm sure) but I recent;y began using witch hazel without alcohol and it made it worse. Perhaps if acne wasn't an issue it would work..but I have sensitive skin and it didn't work.

witch hazel helped relieve my acne for a period of time, then it stopped working.

i'm using an AHA and a BHA that are working much better than witch hazel.
