This month’s Beauty Heroes discovery features LILFOX, a Miami-based skincare company curated by founder Alexis Rose. Alexis is a certified aromatherapist and essential oil educator with over 420 hours of training, and is currently studying for her clinical aromatherapy certification. All of the products from the LILFOX line are infused with wild crafted and organic plant essential oils, delicate hydrosols and crystals. Florida is my second home so I was super excited to come home to a little piece of the Sunshine State.
Jeannie’s note in this month’s box really resonated with me. I believe that it takes great strength to master our emotions, but that we all have the power inside of us to do so. Choosing happiness and love over stress and discontentment is truly an act of self-care that is available to us at anytime.
LILFOX SUPERPOWER INGREDIENTS
- Cacao – protecting, clearing
- Honey – anti-bacterial, brightening, exfoliating, hydrating
- Maracuja – anti-aging, nourishing
- Rosehip – anti-aging, nourishing
- White Clay – brightening, exfoliating, softening
LILFOX Jungle Glow
The Jungle Glow Enzyme Cleanser and Mask is a two-in-one skin-illuminating cleanser and treatment mask that gently exfoliates and stimulates with natural honey enzymes from Hawaii’s Rainforest. Organic raw cacao, organic rosehip oil and maracuja oil are infused into the honey to provide a concentrated dose of antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which are great for plumping the skin. The mineral-rich Amazonian white clay gently exfoliates, softens and removes makeup and build up. The fragrant blend of pink grapefruit, vanilla, neroli and bitter orange is truly one of a kind.
Jungle Glow almost didn’t make it into the box this month because Alexis will only use honey from a specific beekeeper in Hawaii. The honey is derived from a rainforest and the honey farmers are dedicated to sustaining the bee population and educating on the importance of bees. In the end, they were able to secure enough honey and Alexis and her all-female production team mixed batches of Jungle Glow, by hand.
Full Ingredients List:
Raw rainforest honey**, maracuja oil, Amazonian white clay, roseship seeds and oil*, raw cacao*, tocopherols (vitamin E/non-gmo), essential oil blend of pink grapefruit oil*, neroli, petitgrain*, bitter orange*, mandarin*, bergamot-bf*, ylang ylang*, cacao absolute
**certified naturally grown and sourced direct from a beekeeper in Hawaii dedicated to educating future generations about the the proper care and treatment of bee colonies
HOW TO USE IT
Jungle Glow can be used either as a primary or secondary cleanser. To use as a makeup remover, apply a dime size amount and press it into the skin with your fingertips. Add a small amount of water and massage to remove dirt or makeup. This is gentle enough for daily use.This aromatic beauty ritual will be sure to give you a little extra glow. @beautyheroes #beautyheroes #lilfox #greenbeauty Click To Tweet
