How moisturizing is it? Quite moisturizing. Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Facial Mist has a moisturizing rating of 4.8 out of 10.

Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

What else is good about it? Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Facial Mist is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are believed to reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals, thus preventing accelerated skin aging.
