Revamping My Routine with Lilfox

As a skincare and beauty addict, there's perhaps no better feeling in the world than finding a brand that you fall hard for. Don't get me wrong, I love finding new skincare gems of all different types and from different places. But finding a entire line where you just desperately love each and every piece? That's pretty hard to come by. But that's exactly what has happened for me with the insanely great Lilfox Botanicals. With stunning, whimsical packaging, mind blowing formulas and a kind and brilliant maker behind it all, this is a brand that has truly changed my skincare routine for the better.

For the past few weeks I've been trailing several products from the line, and I honestly am not even sure where to begin with them because each one has been so unbelievably great. But let's start with the Seabuck + Neroli Face Nectar*, a facial oil with who's who list of unbelievable ingredients. The formula consists of (to name a few) Watermelon Seed oil, Neroli, Seabuckthorn Oil, Vitamins A (retinol) and C, all ingredients that work together to give you your best possible skin day. You've probably seen me mention a few of these beautiful oils in the past, but very rarely are they all seen together in the same product. Together the ingredients combine to form a lightweight, fast acting formula that helps clear up acne, hydrate your skin and increase cell turnover (thanks in large part to the Vitamin A). Sound too good to be true? Not with this gem it isn't.

Next up is the brand's Chlorophyll + Tourmaline Antioxidant Face Mask*, a dry mixture of organic Matcha, French Green Clay, Chlorella Algae and Brazilian Tourmaline Crystals that you can combine with a few drops of water to make a superfood mask for your face. I was initially sold on this simply after seeing the ingredient of Matcha - if you haven't heard of it before, it's a finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea. It comes with a laundry list of benefits for your body, and is currently all the rage in the healthy living communities. I had never seen it in a skincare product before, so you can imagine my excitement when I came across this lovely mask. So how does it perform? Well, I'm sure you saw my answer coming, but it is a little bit of magic in a tub. After leaving the concoction on for about 30 minutes, I cleaned the formula off and was left with substantially less red and more healthy looking skin. It erased any signs of dullness and left me with that lit-from-within glow that I usually only can achieve through exercise (something I do quite rarely, let's be honest).

I also tried out the brand's Mandarin Tinted Lip Balm*, a combination of Coconut Oil, Jojoba Wax and alkanet root that create a beautiful raspberry tinted lip balm. I've mentioned in the past that I'm a huge lip tint fan, and usually prefer them over lipsticks because of my perpetually dry lips. This guy is not exception - I completely adore the hydrating, thick formula and the sheer wash of raspberry that gives me my favorite shade of lip color. I simply apply a bit with a lip brush, though I've used my fingers as well, and I'm left with a truly effortless lip color.

Finally, I've gotta talk about my favorite from the bunch, the unbelievably wonderful Kalahari Watermelon Eye Serum*. This rollerball formula comes packed with ingredients such as Pomegrante Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Kalahari Watermelon Seed and Rosehip Oil which are all proven to increase cell turnover, hydrate and even lighten the darkness around your eyes. As many of you know by now, my dark circles are one of my ultimate skin insecurities. They're hereditary, super dark, and really have only ever been dented by seriously powerful Retinol formulas. So when I started using this particular product, I was hoping for a bit of hydration and ease when putting on concealer, but wasn't expecting much else. Well I was thrown for a bit of a loop, because this is seriously one powerful formula. Filled with omegas 3, 6 and 9, Vitamin E and linoleic acid, this lightweight formula absorbs easily and quickly gets to work fighting fine lines, dehydration and darkness around your eyes. I've been using it both day and night, rubbing in the cooling roller ball around my eyes and lightly tapping the formula in with my fingertips. I can honestly say that no natural formula has ever worked so wonderfully for my dark circles - they have not only lightened but are substantially more hydrated and less sunken looking. The formula is incredibly absorbent and I'm never left with any oily residue, just super hydrated skin. This product is a miracle worker and one that I'd recommend to any and all that are looking for a natural way to fight against tired looking eyes.

Can you tell I have just a bit of love for the line? If I haven't been obvious enough, I am head over heels for Lilfox  The brand is one that I'd recommend to anyone looking for seriously effective skincare, because each and every product has just boggled my mind with its brilliance.
