Every week I go to TJ Maxx and peruse the beauty section. I have a taste for expensive nail polishes and hair products, but what I have is a military budget. That is where TJ Maxx comes in lol. There I can get my Sephora by OPI fix for about $3. I also have run across a couple new products that I have tried and fallen in love with.
I picked up D:tox System, Step 1, the purifying facial cleanser one random Saturday. I was reading the label and saw that it contained activated charcoal and volcanic ash. I was like how clean could dirt really get your face, so I bought it… I think it was like $5. Actually activated charcoal and volcanic ash can get your face very clean.
It is supposed to detox your skin and infuse it with super antioxidants. I have not had an acne break out since I started using it. My face also seems a lot smoother than it used to be. I went back and got the purifying facial mask as well, I didn’t get to use it, Andre took it. He uses it at least once a week and it soaks up some of the oil in his forehead, making his acne a little better.
I also picked up the Hydrating Clarifying Shampoo and a Hydrating Calming Conditioner on another random Saturday. I finally got around to trying them yesterday. Now I like clarifying shampoos because they get that product buildup out of my hair. I will typically use a clarifying shampoo once a month. This is the best one I’ve found in a long time. I think my search is officially over. After the second wash and rinse I could actually feel my hair. Meaning it felt clean. Much cleaner than usual. I used the hydrating calming conditioner afterward and my only suggestion is, if you have a favorite detangling shampoo, stick with it. This conditioner made my hair soft, but it did a pretty crappy job of making my hair slippery enough to detangle. I don’t believe that the back of the bottle promises to detangle.
Now for where to find it. Like I said, I have found it pretty regularly at TJ Maxx. However, out of curiosity I looked around. Giovanni Cosmetics has a website. Mute your computer, because it also plays music. I’ve also found that Whole Foods sells their products. I found them on Drugstore.com and Amazon. I found the D:tox at TJ Maxx for about $5, while Whole Foods sells it for about $10 normally, they put it on sale pretty regular, at least they do here in Colorado. The D:tox line is also available for the body. I like using the D:tox body wash on days that I’ve gotten really sweaty. Makes me feel extra clean. I found the shampoos and conditioners at TJ Maxx for $13, I have seen them on Amazon for like $21 and up.
Their products can be a little on the expensive side, but at least the $20+ shampoos and conditioners come in 33.8 ounce bottles. They will last for a while. That’s it for tonight guys, BFN!
