The Goop G.Tox Detox
I have had medium success on traditionally detoxes. When they start affecting my everyday life is around the time I decide to quit. The last time was in 2010 when I was 6 days deep into the Wild Rose Cleanse when I realized it wasn’t for me. With that said, I’m more than happy to experiment with other types of body cleanses, that of which are akin to spa treatments. The Goop G.Tox Detox is that exception I can get behind.
5 Salt Bath Soak
Do you know what’s better than a single salt bath soak? Naturally, a 5 Salt Bath Soak with glacial marine clay and activated charcoal, that’s what! A long, hot soak with some Pharmaceutical-grade salts is a great addition to any wintertime skincare routine. The salt soak contains: Epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt, Dead Sea salt, New Zealand solar salt, and Baking soda. With the mixture of Coriander, Cardamom, Grapefruit, Helichrysum, Rosemary, Peppermint, and Fennel essential oils, this soak is incredibly fresh smelling. The texture reminds me of brown sugar. It dissolves quickly in the bath which is a plus since I hate stepping into a bath with jagged salt lingering in the depths. One bag is good for three luxurious baths.
Between the the Ultimate Dry Brush and the 5 Salt Detox Body Scrub, I will have the smoothest skin all winter long. If you’ve never had the pleasure of using a dry brush, let 2019 be the year it becomes a habit. It’s a transformative step in a body care routine and I stand by it. Not only does it help to lightly exfoliate your skin before you shower, it also stimulates circulations and lymphatic drainage. It doesn’t sound like much of an added benefit but I assure you it is. When I use the Ultimate Dry Brush all over prior to a shower, I only use the 5 Salt Detox Body Scrub sparingly on my issue spots. (back of arms, thighs, etc). The 5 salts are combined with oil so they hydrate skin as they’re exfoliating which is a huge plus.
So Fresh, So Clean
A bathing routine wouldn’t be complete without a body wash and of course Goop goes not disappoint on that front either. The Glacial Marine Body Cleanser is a creamy body wash that leaves me feeling cleansed and nourished. I no longer have to suffer through that tight feeling my skin gets after using regular soap. With a blend of helichrysum, rosemary, grapefruit, and peppermint oils, not only does it work like a dream but also smells like one too.
I saved the best for last. This is the hero product from the Goop G.Tox Body Detox line in my opinion. I am a long time sufferer of a dry scalp in the wintertime. And the winter happens to last for an irritatingly long time where I’m from. Often, I describe Alberta as Hoth-like. I digress. Normally when I cleanse my hair, it’s a two step process. First a scalp scrub and rinse followed by an additional cleansing with shampoo and another rinse. Thanks to the G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scalp Scrub, I only have to wash my hair once. It exfoliates my scalp and then begins to foam when I start massaging it in my hair under the water. Of course it smells like an essential oil blend of magic which includes: rosemary, geranium, orange, and peppermint. It is a potent salt mix so using it once a week is maximum!
The Goop G.Tox Body Detox
Thanks so much for joining me on this bathing journey with the Goop G.Tox Body Detox! So far, my experience with the Goop beauty line has been immensely positive. I’m currently testing out the Goop Enriching Facial Oil which I will be reviewing in the near future. So far, I can report that it smells INCREDIBLE. More on that later! 😁
