- Ridiculously expensive that I expect something magical to happen when applied
- So cheap that it is crappy
- Always dependable.
Giovanni D:tox Replenishing Facial Moisturizer ($9.95USD) falls into the third category--always dependable. Like the haircare system, I can depend on this line to work. The ingredients used are always of a stellar quality and there is no animal testing whatsoever. The line is vegetarian and priced reasonably. It also donates to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I admit I am not one of the staunch advocates of any kind but to have a product to support all these tells me others just spew a lot of BS at times to cover their weaknesses. I am not saying to stop buying or supporting the prestigious cosmetic industry, nor am I advocating anything. I am just saying it is possible to have a great product sold in a grocery store or drugstore.
The moisturizer contains green tea and fig antioxidants to help fight the damaging effects of free radicals and super antioxidants ace and goji berry to help recharge cells. Made for all Skin types. 100% vegetarian. Contains no phthalates/artificial fragrance/dyes/sulfates/parabens/PEGs.
This lush cream comes in an easy squeeze tube, nothing fancy. After all it is the cream that should capture your attention and not the packaging. The cream is neither oily or heavy and leaves no greasy residue; makeup can be applied right after with no problem. Moisture is kept in even when spending the day in a moisture-sucking air conditioned room. For my normal to dry skin, this is a dependable find.
Giovanni products are always dependable and never hyped up to the point of claiming magical powers. They do what they do with simplicity yet support what is needed.
