I was debating on trying this or not from Sally Beauty ( which is also my work) , so I did! First thing first; the pricing is pocket friendly! So if you're on a budget for a good witch hazel, I recommend on trying this brand. Secondly, this does NOT have a strong smell to it. I've read other people's reviews and saw where someone had said it smells, yes it smells BUT it smells like witch hazel. If you were able to smell this and smell another brand, they would smell the same. And thirdly, I've been using this for a couple of weeks now and I can tell how well it's working on my face, all over my face has toned out and I have no blemishes. I highly recommend this!
