What is Witch Hazel?
Witch hazel is an astringent produced from the leaves and bark of the North American Witch-hazel shrub, which grows naturally from Nova Scotia west to Ontario, Canada, and south to Florida and Texas in the United States. This plant was widely used for medicinal purposes by American Indians.
The essential oil of witch hazel is not sold separately as a consumer product. The plant does not produce enough essential oil to make production viable. However, there are various distillates of witch hazel (called hydrosols or hydrolats) that are gentler than the “drug store” witch hazel. Witch hazel hydrosol is used in skin care. It is a strong anti-oxidant and astringent, which makes it very useful in fighting acne. It is often used as a natural remedy for psoriasis, eczema, aftershave applications, ingrown nails, to prevent sweating of the face, cracked or blistered skin, for treating insect bites, poison ivy, and as a treatment for varicose veins.
I have heard great reviews on witch hazel and how it works well on reducing acne, size of enlarged pores. Often I come across it, as the main ingredient in a lot of toners.
My Take On Aroma Magic Witch Hazel Pack:
There are a very few products in skin care which I can think of repurchasing, but this is one product I am definitely going to repurchase. I believe, Aroma Magic makes really decent products and whatever I have used till date has not failed to impress me.
Coming to the pack,
I found the pack around 2 months back at a local retailer and the words “Witch hazel” and “acne” instantly caught my attention. I immediately bought it without any further ado. The pack comes in clear gel form and I find it a little different from our usual face packs.
It has a strong fragrance predominantly of tea tree oil (which I like). As directed, I do a slight massage with the gel first and then let it stay on my face for 10-15 minutes. The pack doesn’t dry out and has to be wiped off after some time. I am using this pack almost every other day to do a quick face clean up with this. I just scrub my face and then take good amount of this pack, massage it and then let it stay on my face for 10-15 minutes before I wash it off. This acts like a 2-in-1 product (massage gel+pack) since I have oily/acne-prone skin, I can not use much creams for facial massaging, but this works well for me. I notice this shrinks my otherwise enlarged pores really well and my face looks bright and clean. However, the effect is not that long lasting and stays for just 4-5 hours, but still I am satisfied as I don’t come across such quick fixes for reducing my pore size. Also, it reduces any redness I have on my face and settles any new eruptions in lesser time, as well.
Overall, I am really liking this product a lot and will definitely recommend this to ladies with oily/acne-prone skin. However, I can’t assure you that with this alone you can combat your acne issues. This can be a good add-on to your skin care regime.
Summing its pros and cons:
:yes: Reduces pore size instantly.
:yes: Reduces redness and new eruptions settle after.
:yes: Does not over dry the skin like most packs meant for oily skin.
:yes: Works like a 2-in-1 product (massage gel + pack).
:yes: Suitable for sensitive skin .
:yes: Contains skin-friendly natural ingredients.
:yes: Being an Aroma Magic product, it is easily available.
:yes: Decently priced.
:no: Strong fragrance which may not appeal to everyone.
:no: Jar type packaging makes it not so convenient to use and travel friendly.
