I was so thrilled when I received Dickinson’s Oil Control Towelettes
($5.29) in the mail to review. My boyfriend actually uses the T. N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel that comes in the bottle for his face, but dragging the bottle along on camping trips for a quick, early morning cleanse just wasn’t practical enough. In preparation for a three-day camping festival, I was debating whether or not I should bring the bottle and several cotton pads for us to use. Luckily, these little towelettes came to our rescue just in time!
The packets come individually wrapped in a little yellow box of 20, a good amount for the value. These little packs can fit just about anywhere so they’re great for any on-the-go situation. They are 100% natural, so no harsh chemicals here!
The benefits of witch hazel
are many, but the most notable is its ability to remove and control oil, soothe irritation, lock in moisture, and tighten pores. When removed from the package, the white towelette is thoroughly saturated and ready for use. Just unfold it and swipe it across the skin for instant refreshment. I have naturally very oily skin, prone to breakouts, so this formula was perfect for me. I wouldn’t recommend use around the eyes because of the alcohol content (some may find it to be rather drying, though it didn’t seem to irritate my super sensitive skin).
Overall, it’s a great product. Dickinson’s Oil Control Towelettes are made in the USA, and are not tested on animals. The aloe in them is soothing and counterbalances the possible drying effect of the witch hazel, so they are suitable for all skin types. After I ran out of the towelettes, I went and bought a bottle of T.N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel, which I now use a toner. I noticed I don’t have to blot as often and my breakouts have completely ceased. I would recommend the entire line! But I will probably purchase more of the towelettes for future escapades. That way, I can carry effective skincare in my pocket anywhere I go.
