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. The AmazeBox will always include at least one full sized product. There is a $42 monthly fee and you can cancel anytime. There will ALWAYS be a higher value in the box than the monthly fee.

To learn more about the AmazeBox, check out this post. If you’d like to see what has come in previous boxes, you can type “AmazeBox” in the search bar and you will find all the other posts I’ve done.

Now that we got all that out of the way, lets see what came in this month’s box!

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!

The box always comes with a themed sticker, a product card with your products description, as well as a perforated quote card that you can pop out.

This month’s box came with THREE FULL SIZED products, and 2 samples.

Samples:

Skin Polish:

This lemony fresh, nutrient-rich mask and scrub hydrates, balances, and reduces inflammation. Natural Jojoba Beads roll away impurities, as well as dead and dehydrated skin, so oils from Olives, Lemon, and Cypress can restore and protect your skin. Use regularly to balance your skin and unearth a youthful glow.

Masque of Zen:

This gentle, acne-fighting mask with Montana Clay, Tea Tree Oil, White Carrot Oil, and Cinnamon Bark, acts simultaneously against all the major causes of skin imbalance. Used regularly it will greatly improve the health of your skin, reduce acne outbreaks, and bring a youthful glow.


Full Sized Products:

.LimeLife’s Enduring Lip Colors is one of our biggest sellers! This professional formula applies as a liquid and transforms to a matte, velvety finish with long-lasting, intense, opaque color. The color will stay on for hours without drying your lips out! The color is this month’s box is called “Birthday Cake” and a beautiful nude on all skin tones! Scroll below to see it on light, medium, and dark skin tones.


Bronzer

In this month’s box you also get a full sized powder, Bronzer #01. This is a beautiful bronzer that as just a touch of shimmer to it. Never overwhelming, this is a beautiful powder that will give you a little more color and dimension for lighter skin tones. For our darker ladies, this is a beautiful powder to add a touch of glow to your look!


Glow Drops

LimeLife’s NEW Glow Drops made their first appearance in the AmazeBox this month. The color included this month is the “Champagne” shade. Give your complexion a burst of radiance with coconut infused Glow Drops. This creamy illuminator instantly creates the appearance of youthful, hydrated and radiant skin while naturally illuminating the complexion. Use a few drops to highlight to specific areas of your face, or apply all over on its own or under foundation for an instantly healthy-looking, radiant glow.

Master List of Tax Deductions for Your MLM Business

Tax season is upon us! Even though the new year has just begun, here in the states, employers are required to send out their W2s by January 31st. Some people are anxiously awaiting their W2s so that they can go ahead, file their taxes, and receive their return. With this in mind, I wanted to provide a list of tax write offs for your network marketing business. My business, as you probably know, is LimeLife so on this master list you will see things specific to the beauty industry. If that’s not you, this list is still VERY applicable. You just need to make some modifications.

Office Supplies

This category is pretty well known but just in case you need a refresher, you can write off any office supply that pertains to your business. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Printer
  • Ink
  • Paper
  • Computer or Tablet (if you’ve bought it in this tax year)
  • Envelopes
  • Office decorations
  • Planners
  • White Boards
  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Notepads
  • Staples
  • Paperclips
  • Label Maker

Tools for Online Marketing

This category is for people who market their products online, especially applicable for 2020 when a majority of our business was done on social media and zoom calls.

  • Lighting
  • Tripod for your phone or tablet
  • Any Zoom Fees
  • Scheduler App Fees
  • Internet Bill
  • Phone and phone bills
  • Any app fee for editing pictures (for example, I highly recommend Canva Pro)
  • Any stock photo fees

Parties/Vendor Events

As you all know, I represent a cosmetic brand so some of these items may be specific to the beauty industry. I listed them to help give ideas, but you can apply the sample principles to your business.

  • Signage
  • Makeup Applicators/tools/brushes
  • Samples to hand out
  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Table Cloths
  • Food that is served at the party
  • Business cards that you hand out
  • Mirrors
  • Decorations for the party/show
  • Party favors
  • Prizes for home parties
  • Products that you display

Business Supplies

This can include a whole slew of products, essentially its everything that you have purchased to help your business.

  • Start up costs, like a starter kit or join fee
  • Blitz Cards
  • Business Cards
  • Thank you cards
  • Product organizers
  • All marketing materials like posters, brochures, business cards, catalogs
  • Go Daddy website name

  • Training event ticket
  • Uniform
  • Business related banking fees

Shipping

  • Stamps
  • Shipping labels
  • Tape
  • Boxes
  • Address label stickers
  • Label printers
  • Envelopes
  • Postage
  • Bubble mailers
  • Bubble wrap

Home Expenses

This category gets a little bit touchy. The government is very strict about what you call a home office. Just because you work from your couch, doesn’t mean that your living room is an office. You need to use the space exclusively for your business. Its very important to talk with your tax preparer, especially when it comes to this category.

  • Percentage of your home mortgage for office
  • Percentage of your property taxes
  • Percentage of your mortgage interest
  • Percentage of your homeowner insurance
  • Percentage of your utilities
  • Office repairs you’ve made throughout the year

Did I forget something? Leave it in the comments!

Hope this helps!

Limited-Edition Holiday Collection 2020

There’s nothing that compares to the feeling of home. But the home itself can take on so many different meanings. For some, it’s a person or group of people; for others, it’s a city or set of surroundings. It might be the place where your story began or where you go to start a new chapter. As we turn the page to the holiday season, we hope you enjoy the warmth and wonder wherever it feels like home.

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!

New Fall Makeup

I love switching up my makeup for a new season! Every year I look forward to the new beauty products that come out in the fall. As per usual, LimeLife did not disappoint with their fall launch. 12 new products 😱 here they are!

Lip Liners

LimeLife expanded their lipliner line with 5 NEW shades. These enduring lip liners are long lasting, not drying, and go on like buttah! A cool feature is that there is a built in sharpener on the cap, so you can always have the perfect point. These are stunning shades for all skin types. I included swatches below so you can see what colors would work best for your skintone.

Perfect Glow Drops

You don’t have to leave your glowy skin in the summer. These creamy illuminator drops create the appearance of youthful, hydrated and radiant skin while naturally illuminating the complexion. Coconut infused drops are nourishing and hydrating helping the skin feel soft and smooth before you apply your makeup.

3 Shades to chose from: Rose’, Champagne, Bronze. Let’s check these illuminators out!

Pro Packs of Blenderfuls

Now my favorite makeup sponge comes in a mini AND a multipack! I had gotten my hands on a mini Blenderful from previous limited holiday products and I was SSOOOO excited to see it come back as a permanent fixture in the line! Why do I love it so much? Latex free, softest, most luxurious sponge I’ve ever used. It’s my absolute favorite way to apply my foundation and leaves the most beautiful finish. For the pro or the average joe, the Blenderful now comes in a 6 pack! Minis come in a 5 pack.

NEW Pink Grapefruit Farm to Tub Soap

Love this Pink Grapefruit Soap! Released in October because part of the proceeds are donated to the “Keep a Breast Foundation.” It smells absolutely amazing! Plus it contains Grapefruit essential oil, known for its antibacterial properties, it works to keep skin clean and blemish-free. At only $14 this all natural soap is a great gift for friends, family, or yourself!

Glamcor Colorful Riki

This is a must have for the gym, traveling, anytime on the go! This lighted mirror has 3 light settings and a magnetic pan to store all of your makeup favorites! It also includes a small tool to help pop out your favorite shades from their original container. If your favorite shade happens to be in a plastic pan, there are metal stickers that are included! This is such a great Christmas gift!

I’m loving these products soooo much!! Don’t forget that anytime you place an order with LimeLife, there is a 30 day 100% money back guarantee. Also, free shipping starts at $77!
