About Our Marula Oil

The Marula Oil in our amazing Midnight Oil™ Cleanser and Serum is a free-radical, skin-protecting oil. Precious bioactive lipids defend skin from dehydration and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We purchase our Marula Oil from a village business in Kenya that employs 180 people year-round and 3,000 people for the seasonal harvest. While taking extraordinary care, each Marula shell is hand selected and cracked using machetes and the small kernels are extracted using metal picks. The oil is cold-pressed using no solvents. After pressing, it is filtered through a small, but state-of-the-art filter to ensure the oil is free of any contaminants. Since women do most of the work, the money earned is most often spent to send their children to school. It is common for the children to be the first in the family ever to attend school.

To learn more about the benefits of Marula Oil, check out my blog post – 8 Incredible Benefits of Marula Oil.

LimeLife’s BEST Products Under $30

If you’re not familiar with LimeLife by Alcone, it is a network marketing company who was founded by Alcone. Alcone is a professional cosmetics company that has been a staple in the makeup industry for over 65 years. With quality products at the helm of their business, everything that LimeLife offers is top of the line. With LimeLife, quality does not mean expensive. They have an amazing price point and many products to choose from! I thought some people may feel overwhelmed looking at a whole website of products, so I decided to put together my personal list of must haves under $30. Ready for it? Here it is!

*This list is in no particular order

Skincare Must Haves Under $30

Dream Clean Facial Cleanser

The description as for normal to oily or acne prone skin. I’m here to say that’s a lie! HA! I have extremely dry skin and I absolutely LOVE this cleanser. It’s all natural, its foams which is really rare for a natural cleanser, that’s usually a chemical reaction. It has Soapberry which helps combat acne, reduces the appearance of age spots. If you want to learn more about Dream Clean, check out this blog post where I go into more detail.

Dew Date

This face serum is something dreams are made of! Somehow its an oil but its not greasy. I’m convinces there’s some kind of wizardry going on! It is made of Palmarose and Sunflower Oil. Dew Date reduces inflammation and prevents skin from damage. It can be used as a moisturizer all on its own, or in addition to your normal moisturizer to give your a boost. Some people with oily skin have found success in using Dew Date at night because it actually helps balance out the chemistry of their skin!

Farm To Tub Soaps

I love the Farm To Tub Soaps because there are a few different ones to chose from and they all serve their own purpose. These bars are all created with ingredients that are sustainably sourced, they’re rainforest-friendly, and they’re vegan.

Peppermint– Made with Peppermint essential oil, will help unclog your pours and energize your skin.

White Tea & Ginger– Made with essential oils from White Tea and Ginger and are rich with antioxidants.

Lavender & Lemongrass– Lavender is soothing and restorative while Lemongrass cleanse and refreshes!

Charcoal, Peppermint & Tea Tree (My FAVORITE and the main reason these Farm to Tub Soaps made my list)- Contains activated charcoal which draws bacteria and toxins out of the skin and then Tea Tree Oil comes in as a antiseptic!

Makeup Must Haves Under $30

Enduring Lip Colors

Enduring Lip Colors are a liquid lipstick. They all dry matte with the exception of one, Wedding Cake. These lip colors smell great, are long lasting, and wont dry out your lips! My personal top 3 faves- Ruby Chocolate (best seller), Wedding Cake, and Macaroon. I made the pictures showing the different color lipsticks so you could see them better!

Eyeliner

Y’all, LimeLife’s eyeliner is everything! There are two different types: a pen and a pencil.

Perfect Eyeliner Pen is a liquid eyeliner that actually has a bunch of tiny bristles that come together to make a sharp point. You can get the wing of your dreams with that bad boy. It’s also smudge proof!

*Pro tip- don’t store your eyeliner pens cap down, it may cause the liquid to run out. Instead store them on their side.

Enduring Eyeliner Pencils are amazing! They dry quickly and once they are set, they don’t budge! If you want to smoke your liner out, you have about 15 seconds before your eyeliner sets up. The pencils are enduring, which means they’ll last 24 hours, and they’re waterproof. Hello eyeliner at the pool that wont let you down!

Enduring Eyeliners come in 3 colors: Nude, Brown, and Black

Translucent Setting Powder

What makes LimeLife’s Translucent Powder stand out is that its so light weight! One color works for EVERY skin tone, so no worries on which powder is right for you! It’s not cakey, it doesn’t crease, and it doesn’t have flashback! It sets your makeup, which helps it wear longer, and it absorbs the appearance of oil on your skin so it gives you a matte finish!

Concealer

Okay this is by far one of my top favorite LimeLife products. I’ve never used a concealer that covered so well with using so little! This concealer is water resistant (hello pool, lake, beach!), long wearing, AND it is an eyeshadow primer! Personally, I use concealer #2 as a skin tone color to help cover blemishes, #0 as a highlight, and #6 for contour. The concealer I use every single day is concealer #0 for highlight and it lasts me a solid 8-10 months!

Primer and Setting Spray

Primer and Setting sprays are crucial for a flawless face of makeup!

Primer gives you a great canvas to put your makeup on. It helps reduce the appearance of large pores, and helps prevent your makeup from settling into lines. It also helps your makeup perform longer.

*Technically the full sized version of this bottle doesn’t land on our under $30 list but if you click on the drop down menu, you will size a travel sized bottle that is only $18! Holla!

Setting Spray will help your makeup last up to 16 hours! No touch ups needed around here! It will set your makeup, help prevent creasing, caking, or transfer. LimeLife offers two different types of setting spray: Time Setter Setting Spray- which is best for normal to dry skin, and Oil Strike Perfect Matte Setting Spray which is great for oily skin. Both the full size and the travel sized bottles of our setting spray are under $30.

*If you want full sized bottles of both products, they come in a collection which will save you $10

Beauty Tools Must Have Under $30

Clean Act Brush and Sponge Shampoo

This brush and sponge cleanser has made cleaning my tools so mush simpler! The formula is chemical free, vegan, and makes brushes last a lifetime and will make your brushes softer than they were begin with! I did a whole blog post about how I use it. You can read that post here.

Blenderful

Real talk- this is my favorite beauty sponge of all time! I love a good beauty sponge. I’ve used them since the Beauty Blender hit the market. The Blenderful is so velvety, so plush, it beats the Beauty Blender in a head-to-head every time!

P.S.

Eyeshadow Brushes

The better your tools, the better your makeup will look. Getting quality tools will not only make your makeup apply easier and how you want, they will also last you a lifetime! LimeLife brushes are so high quality! They have weighted handles, are made with vegan bristles, and are so sleek! 14 of these brushes make our list in the price category 😍 so because of that, I’ll share a few of my absolute favs!

– Brow Tamer Brush – my most used brush!

– Large Shadow Brush

– Pointed Blender Brush

– Small Shadow Brush

To see more info about the brushes check out this blog post, Beginners Guide to Makeup Brushes, where I go into detail about what the brushes are used for.

Makeoff Remover Wipes

Rounding out my list with a product I use every single day! Want the most luxurious way to take off your makeup? This is it! Millions of these makeup remover cloths are sold each year! You can get them in a pop up pack (think soft baby wipe container) or individually wrapped. Personally, I like them individually wrapped so I can take them with me on the go… and I might have a tendency to accidentally leave the pop up pack open…

You can’t go wrong with LimeLife products and they offer so many under $30 but I tried to keep my list short as to not over whelm a newbie.
