I started using witch-hazel just recently. I tend to gravitate to old-school products, and witch-hazel is definitely one of those. Witch-hazel moisturizes the skin and can be used after shaving . I have begun to use it regularly, after each shave. It tightens the pores and tones the skin, but doesn't leave the skin overly dry. Great for nicks and cuts as well. I like the feeling it provides, and I think it improves the appearance of my skin. There are a bunch of varieties available. I'm using the Thayers brand. The varieties include with alcohol, without alcohol, unscented, and many different types of scents. I usually follow up the witch-hazel with an aftershave balm. That's my current recipe for success. I'll put up a review of the specific witch-hazel product I'm using shortly.
