Clean, natural skincare generally comes with a higher price tag than equivalent high street skincare. That’s because it costs a lot more when you don’t fill those bottles with loads of water, and synthetic chemicals. I’ve been lucky enough to try some luxury natural skincare from award-winning beauty brand Dafna’s Personal Skincare. Read my Dafna’s Skincare review to find out if the luxe price tag is justified.

Dafna’s Skincare Purify Cleanser Review

I’ll start with reviewing Dafna’s Purify Cleanser, which, like all Dafna’s products, comes in a black glass bottle, inside a chic cardboard box. It’s great that both are easily recycled, and also look so gorgeous on your bathroom shelf.

Dafna's Personal Skincare Purify Cleanser Review

Dafna’s describe it as a “soft lotion-gel cleanser that leaves skin looking clear, glowing and provides feeling of freshness.” It’s 100% natural, and vegan, and is suitable for normal and combination skin, which is what I have. They say it “removes everyday impurities and unclogs the pores, fights free radicals and the appearance of spots. Reduces hormonal acne.”

It contains MelaCare™ dry oil, which is a mix of oils from camellia japonica, oxalis triangularis and eremanthus erythropappus. Dafna’s say MelaCare™ oil inhibits melanin synthesis to make skin tone more even, with photoaeging signs reduced over time.

My Verdict on Dafna’s Purify Cleanser

I have tried to remove my make-up with this cleanser, and it’s not really up to the task to be honest. I swear by oil-based balm cleansers, followed by a micellar water, and this cleanser just doesn’t live up to that level of cleansing. It does, however make a great alternative to a micellar water as a second cleanse, leaving skin feeling soft and clean.

I use this cleanser in the shower in the morning, and find it’s much better suited to removing last night’s moisturiser and freshening skin. It doesn’t foam up and I find I need a few pumps worth. That said, each pump only dispenses a very small amount, as you can see, so it’s easy to control how much you use, without wasting it.

Dafna's Personal Skincare Purify Cleanser formula

It smells gorgeous, but doesn’t leave skin feeling all that clean. However, I think that it because it moisturises skin too, and I must say that my skin has been quite a bit clearer since using it, so I do think the spot-fighting properties work. My verdict? This is a lovely product, and does agree with my skin, so I’ll keep on using it every morning. I wouldn’t buy it again, however, as I’d rather have something that removes make-up properly too.

You can buy Dafna’s Skincare Purify Cleanser for £36 here.

Dafna’s Personal Skincare Active Mist

I’ve been enjoying using Dafna’s Active Mist recently, as it’s super-refreshing in hot weather. Dafna’s describe it as a “unique solution of plants extracts combined with MelaCare™ dry oil to actively restore skin’s natural tone, increase hydration, glow and freshness.”

It’s also 100% natural and vegan, and suitable for dry, normal and sensitive skin.

Dafna's Personal Skincare Active Mist Review

You can spray it over your face whenever you like, to refresh and tone skin. You can also spritz it onto a cotton ball and massage face and neck. Dafna’s recommend breathing deeply to benefit from the fragrance of the essential oils in the spray. I also found it’s great for helping set your make-up, though a very light spritz is all that’s needed!

My Verdict on Dafna’s Active Mist

This spray is £40, which is too expensive for me to be able to recommend, unless you’re super rich. In which case, go right ahead! It’s a lovely product, but I don’t think the benefits are enough to justify the price. You can buy Dafna’s Skincare Active Mist here.

Dafna’s Eye Care

This aloe-based clean eye cream won the ‘Beauty Shortlist Editors Choice Award’ in 2016. Dafna’s call it the “ultimate high performing solution for the eye zone. Light serum-lotion packed with pure oils, hyaluronic acid and Tense’Up™ pioneer biotechnology.  The lotion is enriched with rosehip oil that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and calendula extract which help to reduce puffiness.”

My Verdict on Dafna’s Eye Care

You only need the tiniest dot, it’s really smooth, with a serum-like consistency, and sinks in like a dream. The glass pump bottle keeps it fresh, and will be recycled when it’s empty. At £51, it’s more of a blow-the-budget treat, but it does work, and a little goes a long way – I used it every evening for well over eight months before it ran out.

    I love the sound of the mist — and also the eye-care serum! I’ve been using l’occitane divine eyes (which I really love) but I’m needing a good moisturiser at the mo. I can’t afford the l’occitane one and the £30 that I’ve been buying just isn’t working… my skin’s looking a bit dull and dry. Will have a look at the Dafna’s range 🙂
