Awhile ago I purchased and reviewed the Giovanni D:tox System Purifying Cleanser. It worked so well that when I saw it on the shelf at TJ Maxx, I had to buy another. I picked up the Purifying Scrub, too. TJ Maxx has these items at knock-down prices so the cheapo in me was pretty happy.
Like with the cleanser, I know the scrub works because I received the entire set from Meg’s Makeup a while ago. Generally, I think that chemical exfoliation is better for my skin, so I have a stash of mandelic acid products ready to use. But you shouldn’t be exposed to sun after doing a chemical peel so I’ve been holding off on using them until winter. (Yes, I know it’s December, but it was 75 degrees last weekend with bright sunshine.) While waiting to use the chemical peels, I still need some sort of exfoliant, so Givoanni D:tox was a perfect choice. The granules are very small, so I don’t have to worry about damaging my skin by scrubbing too hard. And boy do I scrub. My face is left smooth and soft from this scrub, and I know it’s gentle because my face is not red afterward. I use it every other day, but I’m pretty sure I could use it daily without problems.
I’m still loving the cleanser, too. I use it at night when I wash off my makeup. I am verrrry oily but I never use cleansers formulated for oily skin because it just makes me feel dry. I love that the Giovanni cleanser does not strip my skin and make it tight.
I am really happy with these products – my skin is looking better already.
