Your Ultimate Skin Detox Is Here: Meet Yo Detox!

Beauty News


Hey my loves! I am SO psyched to introduce you guys to our newest WISHFUL Yo Glow innovation, a product I had initially developed for my husband, but one that was just too good that I had to share it with everyone! Check out our new Yo Detox Face & Body Enzyme Scrub, a unique 4-in-1 gentle enzyme scrub that’s packed with the same signature ingredients as Yo Glow (pineapple and papaya enzymes, and AHAs and BHAs), PLUS purifying charcoal to draw out impurities and refine pores!

You guys know that I’m always looking to my DIYs for inspo. So, having been obsessed with the amazing detoxifying qualities of charcoal for years, I knew it would be an essential addition to creating a more intense exfoliation for my husband. Because men have thicker skin, and Chris has oilier skin more prone to breakouts and clogged pores, he needed a little more scrubbing power! So, we started infusing Yo Glow with purifying and detoxifying charcoal and astringent witch hazel that work like magic to deep clean – even tough areas, like beards!

Anyway, as we tested it together, I just fell in love! I realized that I loved this more intense formula for a deeper clean when my skin really needed it, so we decided to develop it further so that this wouldn’t just be suitable for men, but for all skin types. I literally love to use this detoxifying scrub everywhere – I do vajacials with it, my underarms, chest, even my elbows and knees! It gives immediate brightness but also helps to improve and even skin tone over time. And honestly, it’s always the places you don’t think about that have so much dead skin!

Yo Detox Formula: What’s In It!

This detoxifying 4-in-1 formula tackles skin exfoliation on four levels: enzymes, acids, detoxifying charcoal, and soft cellulose (that physically yet gently exfoliates), so you get all the benefits without the downtime (no irritation and no redness). The scrub is perfect for days when you need a more intensive, deep skin cleanse! The formula effortlessly tackles excess oil, dead skin cells, breakouts, and clogged pores for a deep skin detox that you can literally feel!

We formulated Yo Detox to be suitable for all skin types, but as it is more intense than our OG Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub, we recommend using Yo Detox only once or twice a week, while Yo Glow can be used as often as every day. I love to use Yo Glow most days before I do makeup, but on Saturdays, which is like my beauty reset day (think nose hair trimming, face shaving!), I use Yo Detox. It’s the perfect formula for an intense reset, which I then follow with our WISHFUL Thirst Trap Cocoon Mask and a super hydrating skincare routine.

Yo Detox Ingredients:

Wishful Yo Detox

Charcoal: The ingredient responsible for giving Yo Detox its unique grey hue, charcoal is the ultimate clarifying skin hero. It contains oil-absorbing properties to remove impurities, plus grease and residue in your pores and on the skin’s surface. Post scrub, your pores will look snatched and feel instantly more refined.

AHA & BHAs: Alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids help clean deep into pores and dissolve dead skin cells, reducing dark spots and evening skin texture and tone.

Papaya Fruit Extract: Papaya contains the enzyme papain, which is known to smooth and increase skin clarity for a radiant glow while antioxidants help to fight free radical damage.

Pineapple Fruit Extract: Full of bromelain enzymes that gently exfoliate, reduce dark spots and soothe skin, it also contains antioxidant-rich vitamins.

Witch hazel: This powerful natural ingredient is known as an oil-reducing astringent that helps relieve breakouts and tighten pores. It also boasts anti-inflammatory properties, and when used sparingly in your routine as part of a wash-off product, it can help to gently detox and balance the skin.

Expect instant and long-term results with this game-changing product after just one use! And, as always, if you have sensitive skin do a patch test first.

How To Use Yo Detox:


  1. Apply a generous amount on clean, dry skin.
  2. Gently massage in a circular motion to roll and sweep away impurities.
  3. Rinse well with warm water.

My Tips:

Use 1-2 times a week! Use it on your face or body – I love to use it on my décolletage, underarms and bikini line. You can even use Yo Detox alongside Yo Glow; use Yo Glow when you need a gentle refresh or before makeup and switch it out for Yo Detox once or twice a week when you need a deeper, more detoxifying fix. I love to use Yo Detox 24 hours after hair removal to help prevent ingrown hairs.

My loves, our Yo Detox formula is available with our retailers worldwide. However, in the Middle East, Canada, and South Korea, the formula is called Yo Glow Intense. Both Yo Detox and Yo Glow Intense have the exact same formula, but we have used a different name for these three regions due to regulatory stipulations. I cannot wait for you all to try this more intense, detoxifying formula!

Our WISHFUL Yo Glow Detox and WISHFUL Yo Glow Intense, $39 USD (£34, €39, 177 AED), is available to shop online at and with our other retailers now.
