For the past two weeks, maybe a little more, I was trying out some of the Lilith products, to be more specific – whipped rose butter (no roses where harmed during this procedure, well maybe few :D), coconut butter and a gel for dark circles. With them, I’ve also got a massage pad that I haven’t tried out yet.
I bought two products and got the other two for a review – coconut body butter and a massage pad.
I’ll start with this heavenly goodness, with whose scent I was just overwhelmed. Thus it is hard to put into words, but imagine the winter holidays, cookies and you get the smell of this product. If I would make it a little less poetic, then it would be – sweet coconut and you do not know whether to eat him or apply it on your skin.
Butter comes in a solid form, it doesn’t have the softest texture, you need to work with your fingers to get a certain amount out. What I like to do is take it out of the pot and apply it directly onto the skin and then further massage it with my hands (if you choose to use it this way then I recommend that you cut it in few pieces to simplify the application).
It’s very nice on the skin, and get’s absorbed quickly (with which I was personally surprised because we are talking about an oily product; maybe it’s because my skin is currently very dry). The scent is mild on the skin, nothing too aggressive.
Whipped rose butter
It has a powdery smell, with a note of rose, this one has the same sweetness in the smell (which is confusing because I do not know whether to eat it or apply it).
The texture is different from the coconut butter one, it is much softer and it is easier to get the product out. Imagine a mousse (whatever flavor you like) and let’s say that you’ve kept it in the fridge overnight, this butter has that kind of a texture (a bit harder/denser). Comparison with food is not accidental :), this products can really fool you.
My dogs got totally crazy over this products, as soon as I opened these butters for the first time they were all over me. They don’t behave like this usually, they kinda don’t care about my cosmetic products (thank goodness).
When applied on the skin it leaves a healthy shine and it leaves a bit stronger oil film on the skin than the coconut butter one, also it needs more time to get absorbed. The smell on the skin is not overly aggressive and it evaporates.
Gel for dark circles
And the last product that I was trying out was the gel for the under eye area. This gel contains lemon, mint and honey, and should be kept in the refrigerator. It is applied in a thin layer under the eyes. For this gel Lilith says that it will after a while brighten the dark circles and reduces puffiness.
The texture of this gel reminds me of a pudding, once applied it cools the under eye area.
The first time I applied it was before I went to bed and in the morning the under eye area was very tight, a little too much. However, I have very dry skin under the eyes so if you have the same problem as me then do not keep it as long. This product really is a mini face lift, because the next day I could barely blink :D. After that first time, I began to use it in a way that I apply it during the day and take it off after an hour or two. The gel tightens the area under the eyes, and as far the brightening part goes I can’t still tell for sure. I do not use it so often (because of the above mentioned problems with drying out) that I could safely confirm the brightening part, but it certainly tightens the under eye area. My mom is also using this product so I will update this review.
And that’s it, I think that body butters are really wonderful, textured and smell wise. The gel dries me out unfortunately so I use it only an hour or two every third, fourth day. We’ll see whether in this way it will be effective.
Whipped rose butter – 70 grams – 6, 60 euros.
Gel for dark circles – 30 ml – 4,70 euros.
For coconut butter I’m not sure, it’s best that you ask Lilith directly, and you can find her on facebook.
