Giovanni - D: tox System - Face Cleanser

Wednesday, April 17, 2013


How does it feel when one day you log in to Blogger and realise that all the photographs that you have taken and put for your reviews, over the years have disappeared?? Not Good. I guess. The same thing happened to me when I was playing with my smartphone few days ago. By Playing, I mean fidgeting with the keys and accounts blah blah..I synced something something and then synced some more. When I opened my phone gallery, I was horrified to find some 200 pictures from my blog consuming all the space on the SD Card. What the heck!! Delete Delete. I am so happy. When Next day I logged in to my blog, every single picture is gone. It felt like I lost a little bit of me. No way to get those pictures back. I am so stupid. Btw, how’s the weather treating you these days ?? It’s already so hot and my skin feels more parched then in winters.

My Take on Giovanni D:Tox Facial Cleanser

My T-zone is super oily whereas rest of my face gets very dry in winters. My skin is also sensitive to certain natural products like aloevera, turmeric. In summers, my T-zone of course remains oily but the rest of my facial skin is normal. What really fascinated was the presence of volcanic ash. I have read posts about how volcanic ash can do wonders for skin. So, when I spotted this one, I had to try this at any cost. I wanted a dry skin variant but this is the only cleanser in the D :tox system range. I have been using this for almost 4 weeks now. those 4 weeks were very severe and harsh winters in North India, when my facial skin except my T-zone gets super dry. I was expecting it to make my face very dry, but it did not. No stretchy feeling to rush and apply a thick cream. The slight dryness which I feel is can be easily taken care of with a hydrating toner or a light face cream.

I need less then a pea sized amount for my entire face and skin really feels fresh and clean after cleansing. After using it continuously for one week, I could notice a soft subtle glow on face. I used it only once for cleansing my face. If I used it more then once, my face felt more dry and stretchy. I would recommend it for dry skinned girls too, (Me being one too) it’s best to use it only once, probably in evening to take the remains of the day of your face. It has all the natural and organic ingredients, especially volcanic ash & activated charcoal alongwith green tea, acai & gogi berry. The bottle is huge and quantity is 207 ml, so it’s a good value for money but not travel friendly. The facewash can easily last me 5-6 months, with single daily use. It’s really good for a facewash and does not remove water proof makeup and stings a bit if gets in eyes. The only downside is the availability and the packaging. Wish this one came in chubby squeezy tube of 50 or 100 ml which can be easily carried in handbag.

I am definitely going to buy this again. Have you used any Giovanni Products ? Do let me know your experiences with this brand. 

Giovanni Products are available at Beautykafe

P.S. - I am trying to restore my blog back. This post was previously published but lost the Pics. So published again.

As for the product.. very detailed review, awesome.

I have been hooked to my optimals cleanser from Oriflame from quite a bit and whenever I think of changing it, the thought scares me because I have really sensitive skin. But i guess thats how us, girls, are..always worried. hehe!
