“I wanted to highlight all the sumptuous ingredients that Cleopatra used in her beauty rituals”.
– Alexis Rose, LILFOX founder
EXPERT TIPS FROM THE FOUNDER:
- Mix a tablespoon of Cleopatra with Aphrodite Toning Mist (or other mist of choice) to create a velvety, mousse-like consistency. Have fun with other mixing mediums such as honey or yogurt for additional benefits!
- Leave it on for 20-40 mins (Alexis finds it to be most effective when left on for longer than 45 mins), misting face regularly throughout the treatment to keep the clay mask active.
- When you’re ready to remove the mask, soften with a warm, wet cloth and gently wipe mask off.
- Rinse with cool water and spritz with Aphrodite toning mist.

Q + A with Alexis Rose, Founder of LILFOX
When/how do you love to use the product?
I personally love to mix this with a little Jungle Glow or Cupu-Cool Jelly Balm to help extend the treatment length. I like to carve out an hour after a busy day to unwind a a hot coconut milk bath and apply this to cleansed skin, giving 45 minutes to allow the fruit enzymes enough time to go to work. The paw paw (papaya) and pineapple enzymes work on the epidermis to dissolve and slough off dead skin cells, leaving skin supple and smooth.
What inspired the product/ingredients?
I have always been enamored with ancient Egyptian culture and of course the matriarch of beauty herself, Cleopatra. I wanted to highlight all the sumptuous ingredients that Cleopatra used in her beauty rituals and in turn inspire my clients to take some extra time for themselves and elevate their weekly beauty rituals.
How long has it been part of the line?
We launched this in April of 2017.
Can you give us some insight on the ingredient formulation process?
I love to combine beautiful exotic yet incredibly effective earth derived ingredients and botanicals. French pink clay, mineral rich rhassoul clay, organic coconut milk, pineapple, papaya and honey enzymes, rose petals, mystical frankincense. Each serves a different purpose in supporting clear healthy skin while providing a luxurious sensorial experience.
