This little plant found its way into the skincare industry and became everyone’s favourite. I first came across Witch Hazel through Zendaya, who swears by it. She has clear, healthy skin, so who am I to doubt its effectiveness. Honestly, I can’t think of any other reason to get this toner.
What is witch hazel? Good question. Witch hazel as a plant is used in natural remedies. Its barks and leaves are commonly used in medicines. Due to its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, Witch hazel is used to treat certain skin conditions. It soothes sensitive skin and acts as an effective toner. Thereby making witch hazel perfect for people with acne. Want healthy, flawless skin? Grab a bottle of witch hazel. It’s affordable and worth every coin.
Learning about witch hazel and dying to try it I went surfing through the web for one. I’m always online and thought it would be time saving than to go looking in beauty shops. Luckily, I found good results for both online and physical shops.
So where can I get witch hazel toner in Kenya?
As always, this online mall practically has everything you could think of. Jumia never disappoints. I found two different bottles from the same brand. Jumia describes the first T.N Dickinson’s Witch Hazel as a gentle relief for oily, irritated, red, damaged, blemished, or inflamed skin. They had me at ‘gentle relief.’ It costs about 1800sh for a 473ml bottle.
The second bottle is a pore perfecting, 100% natural toner. It cleanses and gently removes dirt. It’s also tightens, conditions and refines pores. For 1700sh for a 473ml bottle, I say that’s a good deal.
Sugar Punch Beauty
Another online store dedicated to making Kenyan women beautiful. Sugar Punch is Kenya’s leading make up and skincare online store. Make up, lotions and creams, serums you name it, they got it. Sugar Punch shelters Thayer’s alcohol free witch hazel at 1900sh for 12oz bottle. It has a soft rose fragrance and organic Aloe Vera.
Good thing about Healthy Yu is the fact that they have stores across Kenya. You can hardly miss a store in major cities and urban areas. They’re more centered on health and wellbeing so be sure to look around. You never know. Witch hazel in Healthy Yu comes in a pack of two. Aqua Oleum Witch Hazel and Tea tree oil because as expected, these two go together like githeri and avocado. You have the option of one or both, it’s up to you.
This online store has to be one of my favourites. They give great advice on products before you buy and answer any questions you have. They also have a vibrant blog section where I found a lot more info. This gave me a clear direction of what I required. Interesting read.
The witch Hazel in Western Cosmetics is different from the others. In this case, witch hazel is an ingredient in the product and not the main lead. Worry not however because, Clean and Clear Advantage Acne spot Treatments contains salicylic Acid and witch hazel for rapid acne treatment. It promises to not over dry your skin and show results after one use. Clean and Clear 22ml goes for 900sh.
That’s it, happy shopping!
