December 2020 Amazebox

My favorite delivery every month! If you have never heard of the Amazebox, its LimeLife by Alcone’s subscription box. In short, its the beauty industry’s only professional cosmetic subscription box. To learn the details, I have a blog post that outlines everything you need to know. Check that out here!

I like to wait until the end of the month, if not the next month, to post about it because I don’t want to spoil anyone’s surprise. The Amazebox is currently sold out but we release a few thousand more boxes each month. To get a reminder when the boxes come back in stock, leave me a comment on this post and I’ll be sure to let you know so you can snag one of your own!

While the box may be sold out, all of the products inside the box are available individually.

Every month there is a new theme, that is carried throughout the products and even the box! This month’s theme was “At-Home Holiday Looks.”

How darling is this?! Inside each Amazebox is a little card that tells you what the box contains and a description of each product. There is also a themed sticker, and a quote card.

The card reads:

At-Home Holiday Looks

We love red lips this time of year- there’s no quicker way to get in the holiday spirit! Experiment with different combinations of Enduring Lip Color, Enduring Lip Liner and Perfect Lipstick in our favorite red shades until you find the look that you love. Keep the rest of your look simple with a swipe of Making Waves Waterproof Mascara, and then start painting the town red from the comfort of home!

* Pair a bold red lip with candy cane striped pajamas for a playful photo shoot

* Leave a kiss mark on the mirror for a loved one to find in the morning

* Boost holiday spirit on work Zoom calls with a festive pout and fun earrings.

Let’s take a deeper look into these products, and of course I’ll include some swatches so you can see what they look like out of the tube!

Enduring Lip Color in “Cherry Pie”

“This professional formula applies as a liquid and transforms to a matte, velvety finish with long-lasting, intense opaque color. Use alone or in combination with other shades to create unique color combinations.”


Perfect Lipstick in “Paint the Town”

“Our lipsticks come in two professional formulas, opaque and sheet, so you can change how much color emphasis you want on your lips each day. Our Power Pout formula is opaque and highly pigmented for a bold pop of color that lasts.”

Paint the Town is a beautiful opaque lipstick!


Enduring Lip Liner in “True Red”

“Our Enduring Lip Liners are always on point and ready to line. Their automatically self-sharpening packaging sharpens the tip with every twist of the cap to create perfectly lined lips every time. The semi-matte, high coverage formula lasts 6 hours or more without feathering or transferring and has a lightweight feel.”


Mini Making Waves Waterproof Mascara

“Make a splash with mascara that lasts! Our waterproof mascara gives maximum volume and hold while nourishing lashes.”


I loved this box so much! All these products are staples to have in your makeup bag! The total for the products inside was approximately $70. You can’t get the mini Waterproof Mascara but I calculated using half the price of the full size. The Amazebox is $42 so the savings was like getting one lipstick and the mascara for free!

The last AmazeBox of 2020 did not disappoint! Bring on 2021!

How to Get Free Makeup and Skincare

At LimeLife we just launched an exciting new program, the LimeLifer Program.

We designed the LimeLifer Customer Appreciation Program to thank you for supporting LimeLife and for helping spread the word about our brand and mission to your friends!

Here’s how the program works:

You get Stars for your support.

Every $1 on LimeLife Product Purchases = 1 Star.

Every Qualified Customer Referral = 40 Stars

A qualified customer is someone who opens a new retail customer account and spends $40 USD or more cumulatively with LimeLife.

As you earn Stars, you progress to new LimeLifer rands and earn more rewards

Here’s how the rewards work:

5% Product Credit Earned:

When you earn 500 Stars, you earn your first rank promotion to Lifer! Ever Star you earn after that will reward you with 5% product credit toward future purchases, rounded to the nearest dollar.

* If you spend $100 USD on LimeLife products at Lifer status, there will be $5 (or 5%) in product credit waiting for you at checkout on your next order!

Shipping Perk:

As a Silver Lifer, you will have access to free flat rate shipping on one order per calendar month. We will then increase the shipping and handling method as your status progresses to Gold Lifer and then Platinum Lifer.

Status Gift:

As a Gold and Platinum Lifer, you will earn exclusive LimeLife merchandise. After you achieve this status, you can add your free gift to your next order.

When you introduce your friends and family to LimeLife, you are introducing them to a family brand that cares about their health and confidence, while also helping your Beauty Guide build his/her business. The LimeLifer Referral Program rewards those acts of kindness!

Here’s how referrals work:

Share the LimeLife products you love with your friends and family. For each first time customer you refer who spends $40 or more on products, you will receive 40 Stars and a $5 product credit to be used on your next order.

What’s more, you will introduce your friends and family to safe, high-quality, professional beauty products they will love and help your Beauty Guide expand their business!

This is a circle of support where everyone wins – which is what being a LimeLifer is all about!

What to earn 20% commission on those referral orders instead of stars? Become a LimeLife Beauty Guide! Check out this post for more perks of being a Beauty Guide.

We have such an amazing community here and my customers mean the world to me! THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH for being such a huge support for my family and I!! I appreciate you more than I could ever express!

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out. I’m more than happy to answer them for you!!

March 2020 AmazeBox

I was so excited when I opened up March’s AmazeBox! I wanted to share it with you all right away but I didn’t want to spoil it for anyone else!

If you’re wondering what in the heck an “AmazeBox” is, check out this post where I break it all down. The short answe is that it’s LimeLife’s subscription box. It comes once a month and is packed with full size and mini size products.

Each box has its own theme. Since March has international women’s day, the box’s theme was “Fempower.” So cute!! Inside each box comes an info card with all the products, a little quote card, and a coordinating sticker.

Okay so let’s get into the good stuff! This box was jam packed!

Mini Clear Brow Gel-

Brows make all the difference when it comes to your makeup! I love the clear brow gel for holding my brows in place and making sure they don’t budge! This brow gel is water resistant so no worries if you plan to work up a good sweat! It also comes in light, medium, and dark.

Mini Mascara

The original one-step fiber mascara. Water resistant, not waterproof so it won’t end up underneath your eyes at the end of the day but it isn’t a bear to get off at night. It’s available in both black and brown!

Full sized Black Perfect Eyeliner Pen

I’ve talked many times about this eyeliner! It’s one of my absolute favorite products that LimeLife offers. Waterproof and smudge proof! It isn’t actually a pen, it’s really like a gazillion little bristles making a fine tip. It’s like a calligraphy pen in that you can control the width of the line you are making by how much pressure you are applying. Available in both black and brown.

* you can bundle the mascara and eyeliner together in the “perfect pair” bundle and save some bucks!

Perfect Lipstick – FemFire

One of the gorgeous traditional lipsticks from LimeLife! This shade, FemFire, is a beautiful opaque lipstick and comes in a magnetic silver tube. As always, I’ve included some pics of a couple stunning Beauty Guides so you can see what the lipstick looks like on different people.

Midnight Oil Cleanser –

I was so excited to find a full size bottle of my nightly face wash in the box! This Midnight Oil Facial Cleanser contains Marula oil. I wrote a whole blog post on the benefits of Marula Oil, click here to read more about it!

This box had $90 in full sized products!! That’s not even including the mini products. And it only costs $38!! What???

What’s your favorite product that you’ve gotten from the AmazeBox?

Let me know! See y’all soon!

November 2019 Amazebox

I haven’t shared an Amazebox reveal in a few months so I thought I would give a look at my latest box! If you don’t know what an Amazebox is, its LimeLife by Alcone’s monthly subscription box. You can read more about it in my blog post here.

One thing I love is each box has its own theme. The theme of the November box was Gold. Even the signature black AmazeBox was turned gold this month, which I thought was a really cute detail. I’m a packaging snob and LimeLife’s packaging is always on point. 👌

Here were the contents of the November box:

I was so excited to see all this goodness in one box! Each box contains a little inspiration card.

And a sticker that coordinates with the theme of the box.

This box also contained a little card about our Brighter Together Foundation. You can read this post to learn more about the foundation.

Lush Mini Powder Brush

Now on to the good stuff! First, this mini powder brush. LimeLife offers a full range of professional makeup brushes. They don’t offer this mini brush but I do think it’s a great representation of their brush line. Often times when you find mini makeup brushes they are low quality and the bristles are thin and sparse. This brush is quite the opposite. I was surprised to see how thick and lush this little brush is. Perfect for throwing it in your travel bag!

Forty Cure Creme

Forty Cure Creme is one of my favorite skincare products! It’s an all natural hand and body cream that contains Tamanu Seed oil. If you haven’t heard of Tamanu Seeds, they’re harvested from “The Forty Cure” tree in Tahiti. It’s like a magic potion when in your skincare and is used to treat wounds, rashes, burns, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dry skin, stretch marks. Like literally 40 things. This is also the only lotion that my daughter with eczema will let me use on her. It heals her up quickly and it doesn’t “burn” her skin like a lot of lotions do. Plus I can use it without worry because it’s harsh chemical free! We always keep Forty Cure Creme in stock at home. I’m thankful for this mini bottle because it’s easy to keep in my bag. While I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they make mini bottle available to purchase, you can get a full size tub here.

Check out some of these before and after of Forty Cure Creme amazingness!

Full Sized Bronzer

Included in my Amazebox was a full sized bronzer. If you’ve been wanting to try makeup from LimeLife, you cannot go wrong with trying one of the blushes or bronzers. They’re all amazing! LimeLife offers 7 different shades of bronzer. I received bronzer #1 in my box which is their original bronzer. It has a touch of shimmer to it. It’s not at all glittery or overly shimmery. It’s very subtle and a beautiful color. There are 2 Shimmer bronzers and 5 Matte bronzers. Here are some swatches to help you decide which shade you want.

Full Sized Masque of Zen

Masque of Zen is an acne fighting mask that contains Montana Clay, Tea Tree Oil, White Carrot Oil, and Cinnamon Bark. These products together fight against the major causes of skin imbalance. This mask helps reduce acne break outs, can be used as an overnight spot treatment, and will improve the health of your skin. For a full regimen for acne prone skin, check out this post. Here are some pics to demonstrate the power of Masque of Zen. All natural skincare that works!

July 2019 Amazebox Unboxing

Now that July is officially over, I can share what came in July’s Amazebox! I’m always afraid I’m going to ruin the fun for someone so I try to wait before I post! If you haven’t heard about the Amazebox, check out my post here where I go over all of the details on beauty’s only professional makeup subscription box. Alright y’all, the time has come! Let’s check this bad boy out….

Every box comes with a cute little sticker and a few different cards.

Okay let’s get into the goodies!

Included in July’s Amazebox was a mini Dew Date face oil, a mini primer spray, and a full size Eye Arise, an under eye serum that is worth $84 all by itself!!

Product Breakdown

Dew Date

Dew Date is an all natural face oil made from a blend of vegetable and therapeutic essential oils. Palmarose Oil is a therapeutic oil that refreshes skin and reduces inflammation. Helichrysum Oil is an Extract that has been long recognized for its ability to stimulate the production and protection of new cells. Schisandra Fruit Extract reduces over-active cell turnover, which can leave skin dry and inflamed.

Dew Date can be used instead of a moisturizer or in addition to your moisturizer for an added layer of moisture. A few drops can also be added before your foundation to create a dewy glow.

Here is an example Dew Date in action! This is after just 2 applications

Mini bottles of Dew Date are not available for purchase but full size bottles are. Click here to get yours.

First Base Makeup Primer

Makeup primer will give your skin a more smooth canvas to apply your makeup to and will help your makeup last longer. LimeLife’s primer spray has a specialized, fine mist which will visibly improve makeup application by reducing the appearance of large pores and prevents makeup from settling into fine lines.

To apply, shake well and then apply just prior to makeup after your skin care routine. Spray 2-4 times in an “X” and “T” formation.

Here is an example of the power of primer!

Again, mini bottles are not available but LimeLife does offer two different sizes to chose from, a full size bottle and a travel size bottle that is air travel approved. Click here to orders your primer spray!

Eye Arise Eye Serum

Eye Arise is an all natural eye serum that helps fight signs of aging around the eye area. It contains Aspen Bark which gently exfoliates dead skin cells. Naturally occurring Hexapeptide-11 and Carob Gum reduces fine lines, age spots, and the appearance of dark under-eye circles. The bottle has a cooling ceramic-tip applicator that instantly reduces puffiness and refreshes the skin.

To apply, gently squeeze the serum from the tube onto the ceramic tip, message around and under the eye area after cleansing and before moisturizing.

Here’s Eye Aspire in all its glory! It s big deal y’all!

The July Amazebox is sold out but you can still get Eye Arise here and it ships free!

Guys, July’s Amazebox is valued at over $100 😱 and only costs $38 + free shipping. To have beauty’s newest and only professional cosmetic subscription box shipped to you, click this link!

If you’re interested in trying these products, they come with a 30 day, 100% money back guarantee and free shipping starts at $77.
