This month we are treated to two products from LILFOX, and the small booklet is loaded up with info about the brand and products. They call themselves an "aromatic beautysphere," and as I was reading through the literature provided here, I had no idea exactly how true that would be, and what I was in for.
LILFOX Flower Goo Stem Cell Serum, 50 mL - Retail Value $150
Okay, first of all the names? Brilliant. Genius. Hooked me immediately. I want everything to do with flower goo, and I knew this before I had any idea what it was. Now that it's been all over my face many days in a row, I want even more to do with it. This was undoubtedly my moment with a skincare product; the moment you've all undoubtedly had long ago so maybe you can smile down on me as you reminisce on the product that had you say, "ah yes, I get it now, and I want to live in this bottle."
What's actually going on inside this bottle is blowing my mind, and I can't word it better than the experts did, so I'll quote the Beauty Heroes info booklet here: "At the core of this super serum is a double-dose concentration of cell-communicating mountain rose and crocus flower stem cells, renowned for their remarkable ability to reduce transepidermal water loss, inspire collagen and elastin synthesis, and strengthen the skin barrier." And that's just the start of it, truly. This powerhouse serum does so much more.
From a pure experience point of view, the scent is stop-you-in-your-tracks amazing, but in a way that's complex and raw and feels like it just rained and the Earth is awake with celebration of it. The color is this gorgeous pink, and the consistency is not too viscous, not too slippery, and you'll use a quick motion of the hands to apply it; it dries quickly.
LILFOX Succulent Pudding Oceanic Peptide Super Calm Emulsion, 50 mL - Retail Value $130
Once your Flower Goo is dry, you move on to applying Succulent Pudding, another mind-blowing jar of goodness (or, if you've already gotten your hands on some LILFOX products, you might take their suggestion of spritzing Aphrodite on between the two we received this month).
Here's a snippet of what BH says about Succulent Pudding: "Sea anenome hold a secret in their flower-like tentacles. Their stinging venom contains a protein that inhibits the TRPV1 receptor to help calm over-reactive skin, LILFOX chemists have replicated the TRPV1 inhibitor sequence in a bioavailable penta-peptide, proven to decrease sensitivity and soothe skin irritation." WHAT? Again, just the start of the magnitudes within this product. This is why the most loyal beauty buffs are really science buffs, it's just beyond mind-blowing what can be done to benefit our skin. What an absolute honor to partake.
I know this green color might be off-putting to some, but it's bewitching to me. I love it, I wear it often, and now I get to stick my face in it (in a sense). The feel of this emulsifier is quite silky and rich, and you can tell instantly that its hydration is getting to work.
Minutes after applying Flower Goo, with Succulent Pudding to follow, I was sitting on the couch with my family watching an animated movie, and I couldn't wipe a smile on my face. All at once I understood why designer perfume ads are so oddly specific and fantastical—a beautiful, complex scent can really send the imagination wild. I said, "I feel amazing, I feel like I was walking by a bog and felt inexplicably intrigued by it. Like I decided to go ahead and stick my face in the bog, and when I did, I opened my eyes with my face under the surface, and I saw that there was an extravagant fairy kingdom living blissfully under there. Something nobody would have expected. They acknowledged me like they were expecting me. And now the magnificent memory of that experience is left on my face."
September with Beauty Heroes was life-changing! This month's curation contains a total value of $280 in its $58.95 box—quite a jump compared to last month's $140. From what I've witnessed, this subscription occasionally treats its subscribers to super high-value boxes like this. The two items included were a super-serum and an emulsifier that led to my personal paradigm shift of what skincare can achieve.
