Clean Beauty Review: LilFox Jungle Glow Cleanser and Mask
Some Links In This Post Are Affiliate Links, See Disclosure For More Details
So last spring I officially kicked all my makeup, soaps, and hair care to the curb and started with a clean slate purchasing and using only cleaned up versions of my previous products. I now use a combination of completely DIY products, all natural products, and what I call semi- natural products (meaning there are some chemicals but free of the major “no no” chemicals).
And now that brings us to today’s post. When I first entered into the realm of all natural beauty products I had no idea what to try and what would work because there are not a ton of reviews and information out there on these types of things. Because of this I thought I would start a series on my blog regarding the products that I have tried (and bought with my own money or received a free sample size of) and give my honest review of it. If it is something that I would recommend purchasing I will leave an affiliate link at the bottom of the post for your convenience so that you can check it out yourself! The first product that I will review to kick off this series is a cleanser and face mask called Jungle Glow by LilFox.
First Impressions: Well I will admit the name had me, out of all the products I had received in my package this was the one that intrigued me the most “jungle glow” just seemed like something I needed for my face LOL. Packaging was modern and simple and the claims of being good for dry, acne prone, dull, and mature skin were appealing to me as I feel my skin gets very dry and dull in the winter time (although my face serum has made a HUGE difference with this too!).
Ingredients: mel (raw rainforest honey)**, p.incarnata (maracuja) oil*, kalolinite (white) clay, r.canina (rosehip seed) oil* + seeds*, t.cacao (raw cacoa)*, tocopherols (vit.e/non-gmo), essential oil blend including: c.paradisi (pink grapefruit) oil*, c.aurantium var. amara (neroli + bitter orange*) oil *certified organic **certified naturally grown + sourced direct from a loving beekeeper in hawaii whose is dedicated to educating future beekeeper generations for the proper care and treatment of bee colonies
Scent: This smelled heavenly like chocolate with a touch of sweetness
Texture: This had a nice, thick texture with a bit of grittiness to it
How To Use: First off, be sure to mix well as some of the exfoliant settles at the bottom of the jar. To use as a cleanser simply massage onto clean, damp skin for a few minutes, rinse off and pat your face dry. To use as a mask place a layer upon your clean, damp face (avoiding the eye area) using clean fingers. Leave mask on anywhere from 15-30 minutes, massage into skin and then rinse off completely and pat your face dry. I like to use cleansers and masks when in the shower to cut down on mess and also so that I know my skin is already clean and damp. If you do your cleansing and masks at your sink you will want to be sure you have a dark colored washcloth as the cocoa residue from this mask may stain.
Ease Of Use: I found it quite easy to use as the consistency was nice and thick so it was easy to apply and it stayed put so it really was not too messy other than when rinsing off, and like I mentioned I did this in the shower like I do most cleansers and masks and this cuts down on the mess factor. (And don't worry, I clean my shower often!)
Results: My skin felt smoother and softer right away. I could tell my face was moisturized because it felt so light but it didn’t seem to have any oily or lotiony residue left behind, it was as if it all penetrated deep into my skin and left a nice barrier on the outside. I noticed at night when I put on my nightly serum that my face didn’t absorb much because it was already so well moisturized which is usually not the case, my skin usually is dry by night time and I typically feel a relief on my skin when I apply my serum at night. My serum didn't seem to be needed on this particular night after using the mask.
Bonus: Althogh I used this as a mask it also doubles as a facial cleanser, meaning if you choose to you could replace two products (cleanser and mask) with one! I intend to do this once my full size arrives!
Cost: I did receive this product as a free sample when I had purchased other full size products but the cost of a full size container is $75.00 for a 100 ml/3.4 oz container.
Overall Grade: I give this product an A and would absolutely recommend it! Although I received this as a free sample (with a paid order) I have decided to purchase the full size with my Christmas money!
