Malin+Goetz Detox Face Mask Review & Swatches

Source
Some products simply stand out in a crowd, and Malin+Goetz has amply achieved this with their innovative and effective Detox Face Mask. This, in my opinion, is one of those breakthrough products that you will keep in rotation once you try it because it is so effective. There is a very good reason that Allure Magazine's Editor's Choice Best of Beauty Awards (2008) chose it as the Best Deep Cleaning Mask.
It is very easy to use, and it only takes about five minutes of your time to achieve profoundly cleaned and glowing skin. It is a foaming gel mask that starts out as a standard looking gel cleanser, but it quickly transforms into a frothing head of delectable foam. You do not need to add water to activate it- it does all of the work for you. 

According to Malin+Goetz, "An easy five minute foaming gel mask: Innovative, oxygenating cleansing agents replace harsh detergents and drying clays to deep-pore-cleanse, lifting dirt, oil and make-up away from the skin without irritation, while creating a physical barrier to seal hydration. Complex amino acids and natural almond extract gently and effectively purify, clarify, balance and soothe. Stable Vitamin C, anti-oxidant Vitamin E and Soy Protein help firm and address concerns for aging. Natural fragrance and color."

It really couldn't be any easier to use: "For deep cleansing and hydration, a thick layer of gel applied for 5 minutes or until dissipation of foam begins, in place of cleanser, one to two times per week.  Oilier skin may use a thin layer daily for night-time deep cleansing and oil control.  Remove with warm wash cloth and water upon oxygenation.  Dryer skin may apply a thin layer daily as night-time hydrating cleanser.  Tissue off without water upon oxygenation for optimal hydration."
Once it begins to foam and the little oxygen bubbles begin to explode, it tickles in the most pleasant way-- that evokes delightful memories of Pop Rocks, or the utter amusement one experiences the first time they see Alka Seltzer react in water.  More impressive than the novelty of the formula is what it actually does for the skin. My skin feels deeply cleaned while simultaneously hydrated. It never leaves my combination skin irritated, or taut and dry. There is a real genius and wisdom to the way that they formulated this product, and it is gentle enough for those who have sensitive or dry skin.
Ingredients: purified water (aqua purificata), methyl perfluoroisobutyl ether, butylene glycol, stearic acid, cocamidopropyl betaine, glycerin, chondrus crispus (carrageenan), methyl perfluorobutyl ether, stearyl alcohol, sodium laureth sulfate, dimethicone, triethanolamine, phenoxyethanol, pentylene glycol, polyhydroxystearic acid, hydrolyzed soy protein, isononyl isononanoate, xanthan gum, peg-90m, ethylhexyl isononanoate, sodium cocamidopropyl pg-dimonium chloride phosphate, benzaldehyde, 4-t-butylcyclohexanol, hydroxyethylcellulose, squalane, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (stable vitamin c), sodium pca, arginine, camellia sinensis leaf extract, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, panthenol (vitamin b5), benzoic acid, methylchloroisothiazolinone, citric acid, sodium chloride, methylisothiazolinone.

How select ingredients work to benefit the skin: "Squalene, glycerin, and sodium pca moisturize and hydrate; soy protein and panthenol firm; green tea extract and vitamin e work as anitoxidants; vitamin c smoothes lines."
Overall assessment: This is how to do an effective deep cleaning mask! I am so impressed by this product that I will definitely be buying the full size product. My skin looks refreshed, deeply cleaned, and never feels taut, uncomfortable, or stripped after use. A+

  1. Ok, this stuff looks AWESOME! I've always been curious to try the Bliss version of this mask (the Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask), so I wonder which one is better. Both look fabulous though

    1. It feels awesome on!! I have never tried the one from Bliss- so I can't make an informed comparison, but this one is all kinds of awesome!! They are very generous with samples-- so you should get a sample to see how it compares!

    2. I can tell you guys that the Bliss is mostly gimmicky and I don't see or feel much difference after using it, other than the fact that it just makes me wash my face twice and that's really where the extra treatment is coming from. I think this sounds like a much more effective and superior product! I'll have to hunt this down. :)

    3. That's certainly good to know, Liz!! That seems like quite a waste of money! I really like this one though-- my skin looks and feels great after using it! It's at least worth trying to find a sample to see whether it works for you! :-)

    2. Hi Nexinha, THanks for stopping by! It's a fabulous product. I was told that it is Cruelty Free and all of my research has substantiated that claim.

      You can buy it online directly from them, and it si also available from Barneys New York and elsewhere.

    3. Hi Nexinha,

      Malin+Goetz does not test on animals. I was told that by a SA and my online research validated the information. xx

  4. This sounds like a great product. I have never heard of this product but I am willing to try this out upon reading your review. I have tried many facial foams and some of them are good and some of them are not. i will definitely try this one and see if it is good for my skin too.

    1. Hi Emily, I really like this product a lot. I was given lots of sample packets to see if I liked it before buying it, and I did. I would try to get some samples to see if you like it, ad if it works for your skin. It feels rally good on the skin! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hi there! I added this to my wishlist after reading this review, and finally got it in the Zuneta free international shipping event. Tried it yesterday for the first time. I loved the almond smell and the bubbly effect. Also, this visibly softens and helps remove impurities. A few minutes after removing the mask, almost by accident, I set out to extract a few blackheads from my nose and was amazed to see everything pop right out! I'm really impressed :D
