Dickinson Original Witch Hazel Skin Care

A friend of mine works for Dickinson's Brand Original Witch Hazel and was telling me all about the brand's skincare line.  When I told her how I used witch hazel in high school and loved it, she offered to send me a couple of their products.  She sent me a bit more then a couple of products and practically sent their entire line!  Needless to say, I squealed like a school girl when I came home to a huge box of Dickinson's brand products.

Gentle Skin Cleanser - Formulated with natural extracts to safely and effectively remove dirt, excess oil, and impurities. Instantly hydrates as it delivers a deep-down refreshing clean. Free of soap, oil, fragrance, die, sulfates and paragons, Dickinson's Gentle Skim Cleanser if said to instantly hydrate, calm & nourish, and restore radiance.

I should first say that witch hazel does have a very distinctive scent.  It could be a little overpowering and displeasant to some; however I don't mind it at all.  I actually like the scent.  

I used this immediately.  It was the first product I dived right into.  Right after using, my pores just felt cleaner without drying to my skin.  I love to use this with my Clarisonic to get a really deep down clean.

Pore Perfecting Toner - Dickinson’s original gentle, non-irritating, oil-controlling skin care formula made with Original Witch Hazel. It gently remove excess oil and impurities without overdrying, leaving your skin soft, smooth and naturally balanced. It is all natural, made of simple ingredients and free of fragrances, dies, acids, and parabens. The benefits of witch hazel include refine pores, remove & control oil, soothe irritation, and locks in moisture. 

I love this toner.  It is the only toner I use anymore. Using it just makes my skin better. It helps clear my skin and calms any redness.  This is definitely a product I will be repurchasing and probably will over and over again . . . I am talking holy grail potential!

Oil Controlling AstringentThe only astringent formulated with refreshing, Original Witch Hazel flower extract. It cleanses deep into pores to gently control oil, eliminate blemishes, and help maintain a shine-free complexion throughout the day. Gentle and non-drying, for beautifully clear and healthy looking skin every day.  This all-natural formula is free of soap, oil, fragrance, die, sulfate and paraben to fight
 blemishes, clean deep, and eliminates 

This is the one product that I haven't use yet.  I will probably use it when I am out of the toner.

Oil Controlling TowelettesThe soothing blend of Witch Hazel and aloe in our facial wipes rejuvenates your skin by gently lifting dirt, oil and impurities from your pores while nourishing even the most sensitive skin. The result is a clean, refreshed and blemish-free complexion. Made with botanticals and simple ingredients, these wipes are free of fragrance, oil, acid and parabens to refine pores, remove & 
control oil, soothe irritation and lock in

I hadn't used cleansing towelettes in a while when I received these, but given that they 
are so convenient, they are great to have in a pinch or on a lazy night when you just want to remove your makeup as soon as possible.  These are great for that because you only need one wipe and it takes off an entire face of makeup . . . even long wear mascara!!  I love that these are individually packaged so you can stash a couple in your purse, a couple in your beach bag, even a few in your car.  They are fantastic on the go!

Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel skincare products can be purchased online at Walgreens and Drugstore.com and at many local retailers.

Sunday Lusts

1. Stripe Canvas Tote, Henri Bendel - Even though the summer is half way over, this would be a great beach/pool bag.  I have been obsessed with stripes lately and love anything Henri Bendel.

2. Gold Lust Transformative Mask, Oribe - I love Oribe products.  They are a little on the pricey end but they smell great and work amazingly.  I have been using the Gold Lust Shampoo and Conditioner and am absolutely in love with it.  I would love to add this mask into my hair care routine.

3. Small Clarity Clutch & Document Clarity Clutch, TRUFFLE - I have a few Truffle pouches and I use them for everything; to organize my purse, organize my work bag, for traveling, to tote random items back and forth, to store notes on my desk.  Truffle just released a few new clutch style pouches and I love the new shape.

4. Fine Fellow iPhone 5 Case, Kate Spade Saturday - I have been eyeing this case since my iPhone 4.  Its just so happy.

5. Snakeskin Textured Slip-On Sneakers, Gap - I love easy slip-ons.  With fall around the corner, these would be so easy and just super cute.

7. Rose Gold Layla Headphones, Frends & Baublebar - Even though I already have a pair of Frends' rose gold Layla headphones, I love the embellishments on this collaboration with Baublebar

Perlier Shea Butter White Lily Hand Cream

Disclaimer: Product provided for purpose of review.  All options expressed are my own.

If you have followed me for a while, the brand Perlier may be familiar.  I have reviewed a few of their products in the past and the brand has not disappointed. 

I am constantly applying hand cream and usually keep a bottle with me everywhere.  I have a hand cream on my bed table, a hand cream on my vanity, one in my bathroom, one in the kitchen, one in my purse, one in my car, one on my desk.  I have a lot of hand creams!  And since I can never have too many, Shea Butter White Lily Hand Cream.  

According to the back description: "Perlier has extracted from the fruits of the Tree of Youth an important part of Shea Butter: 100% organic, with extraordinary regenerating, nourishing and protective properties.  The new moisturizing hand cream, made up with 15% of Shea Butter and White Lily extracts with lenitive and emollient properties; it grants smoothness to the most sensitive skin."

As I mentioned, I use a lot of hand cream.  I have used a lot of different brands and formulas but not one quite like this.  This is probably one of the most moisturizing creams I have ever used. I find myself not having to apply it multiple times throughout the day.  Just one application will last for hours despite hand washing.  And in addition to my hands, this also works pretty well on my dry elbows.

I am not usually crazy about the scent of lilies, but this is quite pleasant.  Its isn't too strong; however if white lilies are not for you, you are in luck.  This cream comes in different scents.

At 6.7 fl oz, this tub is huge!  It's probably a little too big to tote in my purse but the prefect size to keep on my desk or by my bedside.  

It retails for $35 on Perlier's website, however you can get this product or similar products through HSN.  You can also tune into HSN on July 24th and 25th, when Perlier will be appearing and featuring the Shea Butter White Lilly Hand Cream in a number of different kits.
