One more for the column of pour and spread by hand. It works fine, soothes, and I like the peculiar smoky scent it has. I let it air-dry and afterward I may apply lotion, ASB, and/or a nice cologne.
The appeal of witch hazel is that it doesn't sting or burn, even with the 14% alcohol version I buy from a large, soulless retail chain near my home. If I splash on, say, OBR double-strength special reserve (w/o WH first) I, er, feel something, y' dig?
