As someone with combination-oily skin, I am always on the hunt for products that will help control my oil levels. No one wants to walk around looking like an oil slick throughout the day. So while on a recent trip to Walgreens, I spotted the new Dickinson's Witch Hazel product line and I picked up the Foaming Facial Wash.
This foaming facial wash delivers clean without complication. It uses the power of witch hazel to gently remove dirt and impurities from even the most sensitive, reactive complexions while controlling excess oil daily. Its non-drying, non-irritating formula contains mild yet effective ingredients that maintain balance even when used with most treatment regimens.
The next product I picked up was the Oil Controlling Astringent.
This oil controlling astringent maintains a shine-free complexion throughout the day. Its 100% natural witch hazel formula, infused with refreshing witch hazel flower extract, gently removes excess oil, dirt and bacteria helping to prevent blemishes without dryness or irritation - for beautifully clear and healthy looking skin everyday.
My initial experience:
As this Dickinson's Foaming Facial Cleanser does not claim to remove make-up, I first used a facial wipe (Aveeno Ultra Calming) to remove my make-up. I then used the Dickinson's Foaming Facial Cleanser with my Clarisonic. I did not experience a ton of foam but it did lather. The cleanser did not leave my face feeling tight or drawn. I intentionally waited after rinsing to see if I experienced that tightness. We are all familiar with that too tight feeling we have gotten from some cleanser. I followed up with the Oil Control Astringent. It wasn't harsh nor did it sting. I followed up with my eye cream and moisturizer and was set for the evening. So after my first use of these two products, I am happy with the result and I will be adding them to my skin care regimen and hope for the best. I still need to see how the "oil controlling" works.
Have you tried any of the Dickinson's Witch Hazel facial products, if so which ones? Also, what are some of your favorite beauty/cosmetic brands from your childhood?
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
