DAFNA'S Revival Bio-Active Beauty Mask

Dafna Shaham founded her range of award winning skincare using her own name
which translates from Hebrew as Laurel Leaves - hence the company logo. Based
in Spain Dafna Skincare is largely based on Ayurvedic philosophy (Ayur’ = life,
Veda=knowledge). Which sees the body and mind as strongly connected. The
Ayurvedic philosophy is based on 3 Dosha (People) Types, the following will
describe these types, if it's not for you, skip this section.

The 3 Dosha Types are;

1. Vata Dosha Energy that controls bodily functions associated with motion,
including blood circulation, breathing, blinking, and your heartbeat.
In balance: There is creativity and vitality.
Out of balance: Can produce fear and anxiety.

2. Pitta Dosha Energy that controls the body's metabolic systems, including
digestion, absorption, nutrition, and your body's temperature.
In balance: Leads to contentment and intelligence.
Out of balance: Can cause ulcers and anger.

3. Kapha Dosha; Energy that controls growth in the body. It supplies water to all
body parts, moisturises the skin, and maintains the immune system.
In balance: Expressed as love and forgiveness.
Out of balance: Can lead to insecurity and envy.

Each person has all three Doshas, but usually one or two dominate. Various Dosha
proportions determine ones physiological and personality traits, as well as general
likes and dislikes. For example Vata types will prefer hot weather to cold and Kapha
types are more likely to crave spicy foods than other types.

On opening the heavy deep violet glass jar. Violet glass is often used to protect
natural beauty products from light damage. Your product is hygiene sealed by a
protective cover, remove the cover and you are looking at a face mask the likes of
which you have probably never seen before! On first glance I assumed the little
black flecks where seeds of some sort, wrong. This is the Capsulated Charcoal,
applying a thin layer of the mask in a patting action it's almost like applying a
moisturiser, almost clear apart from the Charcoal particles the mask sits easily on
the skin for 5-7 minutes before you apply a small amount of warm water and
massage into the skin for 1 minute, this action breaks down the Charcoal which
also acts a mild exfoliator, rinse off with warm water and you are left with visibly
softer more even toned skin, my face was not at all dry, itchy or red. It had a
smooth "balanced" look to it with no signs of any irritation, the fragrance of this
unique mask is botanical, it works with the philosophy of mind and body balance
as I couldn't help but breathe deeply to inhale to soothing fragrance, all in all
it was a brilliant experience in more ways than one, not only was I left with great
looking skin, I felt relaxed in the process.

I had not tried anything from Dafna before this mask, and am delighted to have
discovered the range, I am in the process of trialling the Recovery Cleanser so
watch out for my thoughts coming soon on that.
