Beauty Heroes October Discovery feat. LILFOX

October Discovery

Go subscribe to the Beauty Heroes box and come back to continue reading. I’ll wait.

Last month, I was so high on the Josh Rosebrook curation that when I finally photographed the product and had begun to document my excitement, it had already sold out. This month’s (October) discovery features LILFOX, the Miami based clean beauty range that was the star of Handsome Heroes, the limited edition grooming box I covered earlier this year.

What is it?

For those of you new to Beauty Heroes, the subscription service helps you maneuver the clean beauty space with a monthly delivery of the ultimate in discoveries. The extremely approachable concept is the creation of Founder Jeannie Jarnot, a green beauty expert and industry insider. Each shipment strives never to overwhelm; it focuses on a hero (always full size) and a sidekick (a handy deluxe mini) of a featured brand. Every box includes a gorgeous booklet that highlights the story of the brand, describes the formulas that are included, lists all ingredients, and offers instructions for proper use. Beauty Heroes prepaid subscriptions are available for 3, 6 or 12 months. This system is flawless.

How to: be a radiant fox.

October Discovery – LILFOX

The Hero – Prickly Pear Illuminating Tourmaline Infused Beauty Nectar

Facial oils can be tricky to navigate since they comprise the most abundant category in natural beauty. The LILFOX fusion of Prickly Pear, French Grapeseed, Pomegranate, Red Raspberry, and Passionfruit Seed Oils is just glorious. Rich in Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids as well as Vitamins A and K, it stimulates collagen synthesis, making the skin firmer, brighter and more vibrant looking.

Elegant in its simplicity.

You do know that Prickly Pear is not a pear, right? It’s a cactus.

The LILFOX Beauty Nectar is also infused with the energy of Tourmaline, a crystal believed to purify personal energy and to transform it into a lighter vibration. Warm a few drops in the palm of your hand and inhale deeply before you press it into cleansed skin. Surprisingly lightweight, the elegant blend absorbs beautifully. The harmonizing aroma of Jasmine, Sandalwood, Bergamot, and Frankincense essential oils relaxes and de-stresses. Grab a gua-sha tool and give yourself a facial massage before bed with this Prickly Pear potion. Beauty Heroes encourages us to embrace the ritual of caring for our skin and I’m here for it.

All the fruit I need.

The Sidekick – Kalahari Peridot Infused Brightening Eye Serum

This deluxe treat is exactly half its retail size, making it my official fall and winter holiday travel must-have. More of an oil than a traditional serum, it combines nourishing seed oils from Argan, Watermelon, Cucumber, Pomegranate, Rosehip, Passionfruit, and Prickly Pear. It dispenses via a rollerball applicator that comes in handy, particularly for puffy or tired eyes, which seem to coincide with the arrival of the holiday season or when traveling.

Truly sublime textures and aromas.

Personally, I prefer eye creams for daily application, but the LILFOX formula is silky enough to wear well both morning and night. Gently roll it around the upper and lower lid and pat in the serum using the tips of your fingers. The Rose and Sandalwood essential oils are present but with a faint aroma that is barely noticeable. I am most looking forward to the brightening results, which are promised to develop in the coming weeks.

Small box. Big surprise.
