Rose Hips and Geranium Infused Witch Hazel for Face and Body by Bretanna
While shopping to build a new facial skin care regimen, I stumbled across the most amazing witch hazel toner ever.
I know. I know. I haven’t tried them all, but when I saw that this toner is infused with rose hips and geranium, I had to purchase it.
So as I filled up my shopping cart on LuckyVitamin.com, I added a small bottle of witch hazel to my haul.
Its natural floral fragrance is amazing and it leaves my skin perfectly toned, clean and hydrated.
Let’s take a look at what’s inside the Bretanna Witch Hazel Face and Body Toner…
Geranium Rosehip Toner:
Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) distillate, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, polysorbate, pelargonium graveolens (geranium) flower oil, rosa canina (rosehip) seed oil, benzoic acid
There are three components of this product that have me doing cartwheels in the morning. The number one attraction for me are the rose hips!
I was just recently chatting with a friend online about the benefits of rose hips for the skin. She shared with me how much she loves this oil for her face.Rose Hips
Some components of oil from rose hips are essential fatty acids, vitamins A, E and C. Rose hips contain all the right nutrients to reduce wrinkles, puffiness and scaring.
Rose hip oil has the ability to penetrate and go deep into the skin. It is known to evenly tone and minimize dark spots and acne scars.
Because of its moisture benefits, I add the oil from rose hips in treatments for my hair. The same hydration benefits exists for the skin as well!
According to the Huffington Post, rose hip seed oil restores elasticity and protects from pollution and the sun. Rose hip oil can be a safe way to rejuvenate and brighten your skin without using harsh chemicals.
Rose hips coupled with geranium essential oil makes this toner an all-star.
Like many essential oils it is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It has medicinal benefits for the entire body.
Geranium oil can be used for both the hair and skin. It is useful for not only nourishing skin but the scalp as well. This aids in promoting hair growth.
Skin benefits of geranium oil include, cleansing, toning, and reducing scars. Some research shows that geranium oil can help prevent skin from sagging.
For at least a year or so I have been using Trader Joe’s aloe vera gel on my skin. Since I tend to be a little clumsy, it works fantastic on my little scratches and bruises. 🙂 More frequently I use it to moisturize my face.
After applying Bretanna’s witch hazel toner to my face, the evidence of the aloe is clear. It leaves a soothing and refreshing feeling on my face.
Like geranium and rose hips, aloe is known for preventing the signs of aging. What an all-star team for a skin toner right?!
Fragrance Free, Alcohol Free and Cruelty Free…
An added bonus to Bretanna’s geranium rosehip toner is that it is fragrance, alcohol and cruelty free.
Although no chemical fragrance has been added, the toner does have a natural floral scent. The fragrance is light but very enjoyable when applying to the skin.
To use, I simply add a few drops to a cotton pad and apply to my face. I use this toner after cleansing for a topped off clean and glowing look!
The Bretanna Geranium Rosehip Toner can be found at many online stores including Amazon and LuckyVitamin. You can also purchase directly from JordanNaturals.com. They have other witch hazel toner options that come in a small or large size bottle. I’ve posted links to Amazon but if you shop around you may be able to find a better deal!
And it never hurts to add faith to all you do. Printed on the label of this product is “Phil 4:13”. Being a woman of faith I was exited about seeing this…
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Phillipians 4:13)
Note: Do your research before using essential oils. There are some oils that can be applied neat to the skin and some that are best blended with carrier oils. Due to possible allergic reactions always do a patch test. 🙂
