Sometimes you start using a new product, and very quickly realize your life has now changed forever. The Giovanni D:tox Purifying Facial Mask has sure changed my life, which makes me a very happy camper. I think this is the exact type of product I was looking for without realizing it. I’m now a charcoal addict, and even MORE of a mask addict than I already was. Okay, let me explain my obsession…
I’ve used a few clay type masks in the past for when my face was looking spotty. They are definitely my go to when I’m trying to clear things up since they really pull stuff out of the skin. When I first received the D:tox Purifying Mask, I wasn’t looking too spotty, but I used it a few times to see how my skin reacted. Then one day I started developing one of those terrible, painful, under the skin type spots, and I needed it GONE.
Luckily, it started creeping up at the end of a week, so I had all weekend to go at it.
I applied the Giovanni mask just on the spot in a thick layer. I let this dry until the mask had completely dried, about 20 minutes, then washed off. I proceeded to do this twice a day for a couple of days. The spot practically disappeared before my eyes!
I now use this as a spot treatment on larger spots, and all over the face when I have a few smaller spots in a lot of different areas.
On the bottle, it says this is an Activated Charcoal and Volcanic Ash mask with Acai and Goji berry! The charcoal and ash pull toxins out of the skin leaving cleaner, purer skin behind. Acai and Goji berry are known superfoods full of antioxidents. It’s no secret antioxidents are amazing for skin. These leave the skin glowy and replenished after washing the mask off.
Some charcoal and clay masks can be SO drying. This is the creamiest mask I’ve ever seen with these types of ingredients. While all the toxins and gunk are being pulled out of the skin, the moisture isn’t. After applying, my skin doesn’t feel like it’s been sucked dry, and actually feel so so healthy.
I’m going to continue to use this mask probably once a week since I don’t get too many spots. I’ll use it more often depending on how my skin is doing. You could easily use it 2 or 3 times a week if you need to! Giovanni has a number of other items in the D:tox line that I’m sure are miracle workers as well. I think the Purifying Facial Mask will have to always been on my bathroom shelf now 🙂
