Summary List Placement
Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner has taken the internet by storm — racking up more than 5,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, with many users calling it their “Holy Grail” product.
Why do people like it? It’s non-drying, gentle but effective, and free from harmful ingredients like parabens and propylene glycol. Plus, it’s under $10.
I tried the cult-favorite toner and can see why people love it so much — it’s gentle and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or stripped.
Right now it’s cheapest at Amazon ($10.95), but you can also find it at Target, Thrive Market, and Ulta.
In general, “good” skincare and beauty products aren’t affordable. The rule — whether earned or simply given — is that expensive products are better than less expensive ones.

Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner is another. Despite beginning as just another under-$10 product stocked alongside paper clips and floss at retailers like Target and Amazon — the toner has racked up more than 5,000 five-star reviews on Amazon alone, been recommended by Allure, and been called a “Holy Grail” product by users and celebrity makeup artists alike — including Jo Baker, makeup artist to Emmy Rossum, Salma Hayek, and Olivia Wilde. Right now, a different variation of the toner currently takes all three of the top spots on Amazon’s most popular toners. In all of Amazon’s skincare offerings, it cracks the top five most popular under $25.
