Clean Beauty Review: LIL FOX Miami

In this post, I will be reviewing three products from the LILFOX Miami brand: Chlorophyll + Tourmaline Brightening Mask, the Jungleglow Rainforest Honey Enzyme Cleanser + Mask and the Prickly Pear Illuminating Beauty Nectar.

This post has been delayed for so long- I mean a 2 + month delay. I love writing reviews but they can be a lot of work. The thing about reviews (at least for me) is that I like for it to be as detailed as possible. So writing reviews mean I have to spend days and weeks documenting how my skin responds to products. I also like to read about the ingredients in each product and learn how they work for my skin.

Lil FOX Miami is a small, brand. All their products are handcrafted in small batches in Miami, USA.

Late last year, my face started breaking out and left a lot of dark spots. They’ve cleared out a good deal now but I still have significant spots left. Breakouts and dark spots are new for me. I have never struggled with acne or any kind of hyperpigmentation. So you could imagine when this happened to me out of no wear, I was desperate for anything that would work.

I reached out to LILFOX to ask for a skincare regimen based on their products. I always advise people to do this if you are looking to buy more than one product from a brand. This will enable you to know which products in that brand to prioritize ESPECIALLY if the brand is more on the higher end side. From the recommendation, I bought the three products I will be reviewing in this post. I have mentioned most of these products on my blog before.

So Here Are The Reviews…..

Jungleglow Rainforest Honey Enzyme Cleanser + Mask $75/3.4 Oz

This is by far my favorite product from the brand. It came in just in time as I transitioned from using products that lather or had some sort of soap products in them. I love that it is a multipurpose product: a cleanser, an exfoliator, and a hydrating mask all in one. I could travel with just this one jar for weeks and still be content with my skincare.

This cleanser is very gentle yet effective. I use it day & night but love it more in the mornings when my skin needs a more gentle cleanser. It contains tiny exfoliators which are from finely ground rosehip seeds. They’re so finely ground you don’t feel any harsh exfoliating texture. The scent, on the other hand, is a combination of mild hot cocoa with orange flavor.

The primary ingredient in this product is the raw rainforest honey which is sourced sustainably from Hawaii. The full ingredient list includes:

Mel (Raw Rainforest Honey), P.incarnata (Maracuja) Oil, Kaolinite (White) Clay, R.canina (Rosehip Seed) Oil* + Seeds, T.cacao (Raw Cacao), Tocopherols (Vit.E/non-gmo), C.paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) Oil, C.aurantium var. amara (Neroli + Bitter Orange*) Oil 

This product is packed with antioxidants to fight free radicals, it’s also high in Vitamin A + C, Omega 6 acids and ingredients great for regenerating skin cells. Honey is great for giving the skin much needed hydration along with its antimicrobial properties.

It leaves my skin feeling cleaner, clearer and more radiant. My skin also feels more youthful, soft and balanced. People really could tell a difference in my skin when I use this product consistently.

Chlorophyll + Tourmaline Brightening Mask $68

I have a lot of brightening masks. This one is on my top two favorites. I love that this is a dry powdered mask so you get optimum freshness with every use. I use it 1x/week and this works very well with my weekly mask routine. This is one of the masks that you don’t want to dry- so I spritz it with water when I start noticing any dryness while it’s on my face. It has ingredients that make it both an antioxidant mask and a brightening mask.

Some of my favorite things about this mask include the fact that

  • Chlorella fights free radicals and prevents premature aging,
  • The spirulina detoxifies skin,
  • Matcha green tea helps firm skin, balance sebum production and boost collagen production,
  • French Green Sea Clay draws out impurities, tighten pores

The ingredients include:

Montmorillonite (French Sea) Clay, C.vulgaris (Chlorella Algae), C.sinensis (Matcha Green Tea), Kaolin (Amazonian White) Clay, A.platensis (Spirulina), Green Bentonite Clay, C.asiotica (Got Kola), C.officianlis (Calendula), B.carterii (Frankincense), Brazilian Tourmaline Crystals 

The ingredients in this product are few but they are nutrient dense. It has purifying properties from the French green sea clay. There’s also a chemistry behind how Tourmaline enables other nutrients deeply penetrate the skin, hence the detox benefits of this mask.

When I use this product, my skin feels and looks soft, clean and smooth. It’s a must have for me.

 

Prickly Pear Illuminating Beauty Nectar $110

I have mentioned this product quite a bit on this blog. Like in this post, and this one. My determining factor for purchasing this product was the claim that it’ll instantly brighten and even out my skin tone. Another major claim on this product is that it is liquid silk- which I find to be true. I was blown away by just how silky my skin felt and looked when I used this product or the first time. I find this product to be quite hydrating, although the level of hydration I’m getting from this isn’t as intense now in the winter compared to when I used it in the summer/fall.

Here’s the ingredient list for this one:

O.ficus indica (Prickly Pear Seed) Oil, V.vinifera (French Grapeseed) Oil, P.granatum (Pomegranate Seed) Oil, R.idaeus (Red Raspberry Seed) Oil, P.incarnata (Passionfruit Seed) Oil, Tocopherols (Vit E/non-gmo),  J.grandiflorum (Jasmine) Absolute, S.austrocaledonicum (Sandalwood) Oil, Bergamot (FCF) Oil, B.freanna

My main disappointment in this product is the fact that my dark spots are still here. I was really expecting this to be the magic solution to these darn dark spots. So that’s a big bummer for me. I mean, it’s the reason why I paid $110 for this tinny bitty bottle of oil. ha.

Something weird happened when with this product last month. I noticed the top of the dropper burst wide open in the drawer where I stored it. I’m not sure what that’s about as I have a bunch of other serums stored in the same drawer that didn’t have that problem. So you can imagine, I lost a significant amount of the product. For $110, I am bothered. LOL

So that’s about it! I hope this review helps you decide if this is a brand to invest in. I love this brand and will continue to support them and use their product!

If you found this review helpful, please share it! Also, share it even if you didn’t. haha 🙂
