ABOUT THIS BRANDAs a young girl, Alexis Rose was drawn to the mystical world of plant alchemy. From homemade crystal infusions to magic spells and potions to call forth the rain, her childhood whimsy laid a fertile foundation for her life’s work. After completing her studies in aromatherapy and organic cosmetic formulation, Rose launched LILFOX, a playful, soulful line of aromatic beauty rituals to enchant the senses. Still as capricious as ever, Madame Fox approaches beauty formulation as a sacred art form. Sourcing primarily organic and wildcrafted exotic virgin oils, unrefined butters, rare earth clays and high vibration hydrosols from around the world to her studio in Miami, Florida, she hand blends micro batches of luscious skincare recipes and infuses them with exotic essential oils, crystals and vibrant plant energies. Each LILFOX formula is a distinct work of art that is at once whimsical and grounded in technique. Never one to dilute or mask the sweet fruity smell of tropical oils, Fox layers exotic essential oils to compliment, balance and magnify the tart aromas of the plant materials. From the enticing perfumes and tempting body butters, salts and soaks to the succulent range of skincare, LILFOX is an invitation to beauty ritual.
I didn't really notice much difference once I took the mask off. I didn't find it very moisturizing or restorative, and I really could have used a dose of moisture as I had an extreme reaction of drying out from another natural product lines serum. I also have to agree with the previous reviewer who disliked the smell. It was like rubbing dried cow poo all over your face. The smell was almost unbearable. I did not notice any adverse effects. For reference I have combo/sensitive skin that leans a bit more towards dry. I'm sad I didn't love it because the Jungle Glow Scrub by Lilfox was amazing and I'm covering a ton things from their brand now. This product just won't be one of them.
At first I wasn't so thrilled with this mask. I didn't really notice a difference in my skin (I thought). However, I started to notice how great my skin would look the next day after using it. Before I knew it this became probably my favorite mask of 2017. It leaves my skin so clear!
My teen daughter has discovered my monthly hero boxes and promptly tried the Cleopatra mask. I have had to keep asking for it back since I also love it. My skin feels soft, more clear, and rejuvenated after this mask. My teen says that her teen acne shows definite improvement with use. I finally had to break down and buy my own full size jar! This is a staple in our family.
I have sensitive skin, and I will qualify this review by saying that if your skin is more tolerant, you might really like this mask. On the plus side, it has an amazing list of wonderful ingredients. And based on all the tingling I felt while the mask was on, I think it has serious exfoliating power. However, it has a funky scent that I wasn't thrilled with, and it left my skin tender and sensitized. I am able to use some very strong AHA & BHA masks on my face (***** Elephant Babyfacial) without this effect, so I have to conclude that the formulation of Cleopatra is not for everyone.
This mask is so gentle and calming on my skin after rinsing the product off, it gave me a fresh dewy glow. It was easy to apply and easy to remove with a washcloth.
