February 2021 AmazeBox

First, a disclaimer! If you are a subscriber and you do not want a spoiler of what is in the February Amazebox, skip this post! I usually wait until the next month to post the contents so I don’t ruin it for people who like to be surprised. However, we’ve FINALLY gotten caught up on Amazebox subscribers, which means no more waitlist!! In light of this, I’ll be posting the current box’s contents so people can decide if they’d like to order that month’s box. If you have never heard of it and are wondering what an AmazeBox is, it is LimeLife’s subscription box. Its the ONLY monthly subscription box that contains professional beauty products.

One thing I love so much about the AmazeBox is it is always themed, from the products inside to the box they come in! February is LimeLife’s birthday month so this month’s box was birthday themed!

Effective and All Natural Eczema Treatment

Anyone struggles with eczema or has watched a family member or friend deal with it, knows how difficult it can be. My middle daughter has struggled with eczema every winter since she was born. We are lucky that during the summer months her skin is clear but as soon as the weather changes, eczema is back to rear its ugly head. I can only imagine how uncomfortable it is for her. We have come up with a couple tricks that have help tremendously.

  1. Avoiding too many baths. This will be one to experiment for yourself but we learned that baths actually dry her out and cause her eczema to flair. In theory, baths are supposed to add moisture to your skin, for us it was opposite. We do no more than 2 baths per week during the winter.
  2. Long pants and sleeves to sleep. Bless her heart, our daughter will scratch while she sleeps. Its heartbreaking to wake up and find little blood spots on her sheets where she scratched during the night and didn’t even realize she was doing it. Sleeping with long sleeves and long pants has helped that problem tremendously!
  3. Keeping her cool at night. I could have listed this as 2b, because it goes along with my second point. Sweating can irritate eczema and even cause a heat rash in little ones. So while we need to her to sleep with long sleeves and pants, we are sure to keep her room a bit cooler so she doesn’t get too warm throughout the night.
  4. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Twice a day, everyday, even if you don’t see any inflammation. Staying ahead of the rash is always my main goal. I never take for granted that her eczema is gone because every time I’ve thought she’s beat it, it showed me just how naïve I am. Our favorite lotion to use for her eczema is a body lotion by LimeLife by Alcone called “Forty Cure Creme.” Its the only lotion that I have found that doesn’t “burn” her skin when we put it on. Many lotions contain fragrances and other ingredients that irritate her eczema. No tears with this one!!

Forty Cure Creme is an all natural, paraben free hand and body cream. It contains a blend of Citrus and Lavender Essential Oils, and a valuable main ingredient, Tamanu Seed Oil. This oil is derived from the Tamnau Seed, also known as Foraha. It comes from a giant tree in Tahiti that is dubbed by locals as the “forty-cure tree.” It has many pain-relieving and healing properties that are great for chapped skin, caused by environmental factors or eczema. This oil is used to treat wounds, rashes, burns, eczema, rosacea, dry skin, and many other skin ailments.

You can apply the Forty Cure Creme as often as needed. For extra hydrations, liberally apply the lotion to your hands and feet, then wrap in mittens and booties to help with maximum absorption. We like to apply right before we slide on her long sleeve jammies and pants!

I found some client testimonials, read their reviews plus check out these before and after’s to see how other people have benefited from Forth Cure Creme as well!

People also like to pair Forty Cure Creme with another product, One Drop Wonder. One Drop Wonder is a carrier oil so it helps other products be absorbed deeper into the skin. Its made of one simple all natural ingredient, Pomifera Oil. It can be mixed with any products to act as a booster to enhance that product’s benefits.

I know that I am not alone in trying a million products to help with my daughter’s eczema, as well as prescription ointment from the doctor. This has been our staple product for years. You can rest easy in the fact that this product is all natural, safe for children.

You can order it here. If you’d like to pair it with the One Drop Wonder, you’ll receive free shipping. Don’t forget, LimeLife has a 30 day 100% happiness guarantee.

Should You Double Cleanse?

Have you heard of double cleansing? It’s pretty big in the beauty world right now. Whether you’ve heard of it or not, lets break down the “who, what, when, where, why, and hows.”

What is Double Cleansing Method?

Double cleansing in its simplest explanation is washing your face twice. More specifically, you should you two different cleansers. This method is to ensure that your skin is truly clean. The first cleanser will clean your skin, remove any makeup and excess oils. The second cleanser will be geared towards your skin type and will address any concerns.

Who Should Double Cleanse?

If you have acne prone or oily skin, double cleansing is for you! Also, if you wear a lot of makeup or specifically foundation, double cleansing is for you! Live in a large city with high population and pollution? Yep, double cleansing is also for you.

If you tend to have very dry skin or wear minimal makeup, you can probably skip the extra step.

When Should I Double Cleanse

Double cleansing should happen in the evening. The purpose of double cleansing your face is to wash off the buildup and/or makeup from the day. Also, you don’t need to double cleanse everyday. If you have dry skin, or you haven’t worn any makeup that day, you could skip it.

How To Do The Double Cleansing Method?

When double cleansing, you should use two different cleansers. Your first face wash should be an oil-based wash. Then you should wash your face with a water-based cleanser.

You should first use an oil-based cleanser to remove any makeup, sunscreen, or pollution that may be on your face throughout the day. Air pollution can actually accumulate on your skin causing irritation, rashes, and breakouts.

Using an oil-based cleanser is an important first step because it wont be too harsh on your skin. Over washing your skin can lead to drying out and/or irritating your skin. You want to make sure that you maintain balance when it comes to your skin, that’s why using an oil cleanser is beneficial.

The oil-based cleanser that I use and love is the Midnight Oil Cleanser. It contains Marula Oil which is so beneficial to your skin! I actually did a whole blog post about why you should have Marula Oil in your skincare routine. You can read that blog post here.

After your first oil-based cleanse, then you use a water based cleanser. Applying your water based cleanser to your clean skin will allow it to penetrate more deeply into your skin. Use a great lathering wash that will get into your pores.

Since your face is already clean when applying your water-based cleanser, the great ingredients in that cleanser are able to do more work! For example, the cleanser I use and love is Dream Clean. Dream Clean has Aloe Vera in it which creates a shield to keep moisture in and pollutants out.

I also love it because Dream Clean is all natural. I’m picky about what products I put on my skin because we absorb everything. With that in mind, I want to use products that I know are non-toxic and use as few chemicals as possible. Dream Clean is a lathering cleanser which is unique for lathering cleansers. Usually soaps lather because of a chemical reaction but Dream Clean lathers because it uses a fruit extract, Soapberry. It also combats acne-causing bacteria and inhibits melanin production that reduces the appearance of age spots and sun damage.

If you have dry skin but wear makeup, and are wondering if the double cleanse method is for you, I suggest using a lotion based cleanser like Quench Cleanse

Quench Cleanse is a great option for dry skin because its a very gentle cleanser. It has a high percentage of Aloe Vera, Rose Water Water which also soothes and hydrates the skin. As well as Foraha Fruit Seed oil. This vegetable oil is proven to aid in the elimination of waste material and toxins from capillaries, helping support cell immunity and strengthen skin cell tissue.

Having dry skin doesn’t mean that you can’t use the double cleanse method, you just need to make sure you aren’t using any products that are too harsh.

I personally have dry skin and I LOVE the double cleansing method. You can see my whole skincare routine here.
