So you want to ~magic~ your pesky zits away, but your skin’s too sensitive for most astringents? Well, you’re in luck! Witch hazel is not only a super gentle skin healer, it’s also all-natural. That’s right: Mother Nature herself produced this stuff, and it’s even effective straight from the shrub. Heard of Beauty Bakery yet? Well, you’re about to. This local brand’s suite of witch hazel products gets as close to the real deal as possible. In fact, their 4-step witch hazel routine will have you poreless, glowing, and acne-free in record time. We tried it ourselves, and it’s witchcraft, we tell you!
