Dafna's Skincare Detoxify Mask & Exfoliation Review *

Oh hey there Dafna's!

If you've been around the blog for a long time you will recognize this gorgeous natural beauty line and know that I am a big fan of their luxury lineup of green goodies!  I have enjoyed their Moisture Light cream, cleansing duo of Purify and Recovery, and doted on their mini collection.  Everything that has come into my hands has proven its worth and offered real results, and I'm excited to be spending more time today highlighting the care and passion that is behind the range.

No matter how I have received a product, whether it has been purchased with my own money, gifted by a brand, been subsidized by a brand, won, gifted by friends/family, or purchased with a gift voucher, my approach is always the same -- honesty, integrity, and highlighting both the good and the bad.  You can find more information on Disclosures and Privacy here.




Dafna's Personal Skincare is a Spanish skincare brand that values honesty, responsibility, passion, and effectiveness.  They've won many awards, and have repeatedly impressed me with their delicate textures and gentle formulations.  Plus, their belief in going beyond skin deep resonates strongly with me.  They proudly state that all of their products "undergo Ayurvedic philosophy: (Ayur’ = life, Veda=knowledge), the body and mind are directly related and we believe in the power of the mind to transform and heal the body."  I love a holistic approach, and immediately connected with the ethos.

And today I'm here to feature this lovely range once again as I rave about their latest launch, a product that immediately caught my attention and intrigued me...

Meet DETOXIFY, a face mask that doubles as an exfoliation treatment!  This thirteen ingredient wonder is expertly crafted to provide an all natural and vegan friendly reset to the skin, and is full of organic goodness that will leave you feeling totally taken care of:

"Detoxify offers luxurious rich anti pollution balm-to-milk mask and renewing exfoliation. The mask helps to reduce effects of pollution and free radicals (spots, lines, uneven skin look, grey look) on the skin. The delicate scrub removes dead cells and polishes the skin for a velvet touch."




Dafna's multi-tasking mask is made to tackle a handful of skin concerns, and the blend of oils, powders, and eco extracts ensures that you are experiencing a formulation that is kind to both you and the planet.  The combination of grape seed, argan, and jojoba oil, vegan glycerin, and vitamin E work together to provide moisture and hydration, while bamboo and avocado powders join forces to offer a gentle but powerful exfoliation.  And it doesn't stop there.

Detoxify aims to not only refresh the skin by buffing away dead cells, it also targets the effects of pollution and free radicals which can lead to a dull, tired, and blotchy complexion.  By reducing the impact of this damage, Dafna's formulation can minimize the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, uneven texture and tone, and totally revitalize your skin!

But what is this mask actually like?  Does it live up to all this hype??

Well, in short -- yes!




The mask itself embodies the meaning of luxury in every way, from its appearance, how it applies, and of course the end results.  It even comes with a beautiful wooden spatula/spoon that elevates the whole thing that little bit more!  Plus, this way you can make sure the mask stays nice and hygienic.

Inside the jar the product is a moody shade that looks jet black, but once you begin to play you realize it is actually a ultra glossy creation that straddles the boundary between a gel and a thick jelly-like balm.  It has a bit of spring to it, and when you spread Detoxify out a bit the raven tone shifts to a stylish grey - you can't help but think it is pretty cool!  The aroma enhances that feeling too, as it has a soft scent that isn't too in your face but provides a mental boost thanks to the marriage of citrus, rosemary, and East-Indian lemongrass.  It's such a refined smell, striking the perfect balance of peaceful notes and uplifting qualities that lift your mood and help your mindset.

On first touch, this mask feels rich, and because of this it spreads evenly and so easily.  There isn't any effort in applying to your whole face, and the smooth cool sensation is such a treat at the end of a long day.  And despite the glossiness of the texture, it doesn't feel sticky on the skin - instead, it gives a much needed boost of moisture without the slick oiliness of a traditional nourishing formula.



The real magic starts when it is time to remove the product though - after you are finished (2-3 minutes, or for a more intensive session 5-7 minutes), begin to rinse away with damp hands and very very lightly scrub the remains of the mask, spending time on the areas you wish to pay particular attention to and being extra delicate in spots you know are more sensitive.  As the water mixes with the formula, the silky balm will transform into a milky texture that glides with ease and just melts away.  I really appreciate that you do not need to use a cloth to remove, as I find any added exfoliation after a treatment like this can irritate my face - no worries with Dafna's!

This is such a fast acting but effective treatment, and my skin feels super soft, velvety, and replenished after I wash away the final bits.  I love how glowy and fresh my face looks, and the fact that I have not experienced any sensitivity while using this is brilliant - I often struggle with chemical peels and abrasive exfoliants, so the fact I can use this successfully without any side effects is a huge win.  I just can't help but be impressed by Detoxify.
