Forget the ‘good witch, bad witch’ thing. When it comes to witchcraft it all boils down to ancient natural healing wisdom -- a witch is a woman of the earth.

And such an earthly woman derives her beauty regimen from that which bore her that which each and every day blooms with rejuvenating resources, one of which just so happens to be witch hazel.

Produced from the leaves and bark of the North American witch-hazel shrub, this natural astringent has sprouted its way into these 6 Wickedly Beautifying Witch Hazel Products.


Declor Cleansing Gel If you’re looking to banish oily skin, in turn purifying your complexion, well then it’s time to summon the mystifyingly refreshing powers of Declor Cleansing Gel. Not only does this cleanser infuse witch hazel with mint, another of nature’s strongest astringents, but it also contains hydrating ylang-ylang and soothing melaleuca essential oils.

Jurlique Blemish Cream Warts are one thing, but waking up to a bulging blemish on the tip of your nose -- now that’s some raging black magic, unless you’ve got Jurlique Blemish Cream on hand of course. This natural skin-toned coverage cream puts the kibosh on blemishes by minimizing them while comforting and soothing the problem area thanks to a conction of calendula, witch hazel, and tea tree oil.

Erno Laszlo Antioxidant Matte Complex The more matte, the better, especially when it comes to your T-zone, right? No one wants to bear the sign of oily skin -- a glaring shine.  Erno Laszlo Antioxidant Matte Complex is a protective mattifying complex cream dulls the shine for up to 12 hours while protecting (SPF15) and nourishing (free radical fighting antioxidants) problem areas. A splash of witch hazel enhances mattifying maneuvers as vitamin-rich aloe, cucumber, and lemongrass calm the skin.

Murad Essential-c Toner  Specially developed for environmentally damaged skin, you know -- UV rays, secondhand smoke, cell phone emissions -- this Murad Murad Essential-C Toner is a lightweight toner that in just one spritz quickly penetrates the skin getting to work below the surface. A rush of orange and coneflower extracts gently moisturize and soothe the skin followed by a wave of witch hazel which tightens the pores.

Aveda’s Witch Hazel Hair Spray  The art of science meets the art of witchcraft -- pure flower and plant essences. With a little tinkering, something as simple as Aveda Witch Hazel Hair Spray can zap static at its root and eliminate flyaways for all hair types, while giving a light, but serious, hold. Really, all it takes is a spritz, preferably on dry hair. For extra control, additional spritzes throughout the day will do the trick.

Elmis Instant Refreshing Gel  Conjuring the beauty of the moon, the stars, and the earth on a daily basis can be tiring work, fortunately, there’s Elemis Instant Refreshing Gel to release the tension. When massaged into centers of tightness like the shoulders, neck, temples, and forehead, this concoction of arnica, birch, and witch hazel relaxes the muscles as a hint of camphor and menthol cools the source of stress.
