I have a love / hate relationship with natural products. I love the fact that they are natural and hate the fact that most of them don’t seem to work. Being in the beauty business for almost a decade has given me the opportunity to try a vast amount of products (both natural and synthetic) and, sadly, the natural brands rarely make it to my bridal makeup artist’s kit leaving me bewildered and asking why the “bad stuff” works so well. At least that was what I thought until I tried a brand called Giovanni.
Giovanni solves this conundrum with natural products that perform on par with their synthetic counterparts. After putting them to the test for a week, there were two products in particular that made it to my list of recommendations.
For Soft Hair: Giovanni Ultra Moist Leave-In Styling Elixir
This was my favorite product. It left my hair super soft without a greasy texture. The elixir absorbed very quickly and gave beautiful shine. I would highly recommend this to any bride who has over-processed locks and needs to get them in shape for her wedding. After a week of daily use, the dryness in my hair was obliterated and left in great condition.
For Cleansing: Giovanni Refreshing Facial Cleansing Towelettes
These towelettes claim to cleanse, tone and hydrate in one step and, while I am not a huge fan of towelettes to thoroughly cleanse the skin, I am aware that when honeymooning and traveling in general they can be a much needed solution to cleansing on the go. These little cloths were by far the best I have tried. First of all, there are a whopping 30 in the pack giving you more bang for your buck and were fully saturated with the most refreshing smelling cucumber cleansing formula. They were very effective at removing my mascara and did not leave an oily residue on my skin. Both newlywed husbands and wives will enjoy these as they are so quick and easy to use. I give these towelettes a big thumbs up!
I would highly recommend both of these products for the bride who wants a natural, affordable alternative to conventional hair and skin care. For more information on Giovanni visit www.giovannicosmetics.com.
