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.

There’s nothing that compares to the feeling of home. But the home itself can take on so many different meanings.

As we turn the page to the holiday season, we hope you enjoy the warmth and wonder wherever it feels like home.

New Skincare Collection for the Body

I am obsessed with body scrubs these day! Exfoliating all over before applying self tanner is crucial. Plus, it leaves you feeling amazing!! The great news is that LimeLife has a brand new collection for us with BIG savings. The Renew Body Collection has everything you need to treat and care for your skin from head to toe. In this collection you get your choice of exfoliating scrub and it includes two hydrating lotions. Here are your options:

Exfoliating Scrubs

Scrubtini:

Super-moisturizing sugar body scrub made with Virgin Coconut Oil, Shea and Olive Butters, and Lemon Verbena Oil, which is super refreshing. Sugar granules gently exfoliate to instantly reveal glowing, healthy, and hydrated skin. This scrub smell ah-mazing. You’re almost tempted to eat it, but don’t! It doesn’t taste as good as it smells 😉

Bamboo Renew

My personal favorite body scrub! It’s great for exfoliating super dry and rough skin. This body scrub has polishing Walnut Shell Powder, Bamboo, and a refreshing essential oil blend of Lemongrass, Mimosa Flower, and Litsea. This scrub gently foams, exfoliates, and leaves your skin smelling lemony fresh and silky smooth. The Walnut Shell Powder exfoliates and removed dead or dry skin cells. The Bamboo Powder is from the hills of India and makes the skin more vibrant. While the Algae and Rice Extracts provide firming agents and the Milk Thistle is known for exceptional moisturizing. I mean, what a perfect combo of ingredients! I truly love this product!

The Two Body Lotions:

Creme of the Crop

Creme of the Crop of a extra-rich, decadent, protective creme. It contains the highest quality African Shae Butter and Safflower Seed Oil, that penetrates deeply to heal dry, cracked, and calluses skin. The shea butter is extracted from the shea nut in a way that doesn’t decrease the benefits of this oil. The shea butter is purchased from an African production corporation that harvests responsibly to keep the indigenous shea tree thriving. This creme also contains Lavender Water which is a soothing and hydrating ingredient that absorbs into the skin. This creme can be used all over the body or as a daily hand creme.

Forty Cure Creme

I’ve talked about this product before here and here. It is by far one of my favorite products and crucial in my household because one of my daughters has eczema and she uses it everyday to help her dry, itchy skin. Forty Cure Creme is a super rich hand and body cream. It contains a blend of Citrus and Lavender Essential Oils and an ingredient called, Tamanu Seed Oil. This oil is obtained from “The Forty Cure” tree in Tahiti. This oil is used to treat wounds, rashes, burn, eczema, rosacea, dry skin, and many other skin ailments. It is the main ingredient in this therapeutic body cream.

The Bundle:

You can purchase any of these products individually but now you can bundle an exfoliant and the two lotions to save some money. Woot Woot! And not just a little money, TWENTY DOLLARS! Y’all, $20 savings is pretty dang good. To order, follow THIS LINK, and pick your favs!

P.S. August is my birthday month and to celebrate, I’m doing a super fun giveaway in my Facebook beauty group. Click here to join my group so you can have a chance to win!

Skincare Regimen for Dry or Mature Skin

My skin has gone through a big change in the last couple of years. I used to have such dry skin that I would actually get red patches on my face where the skin would look scaly and flake off. Even makeup couldn’t cover it up. Actually, makeup would make it look worse because it would just cake on top.

I’m super picky about what skincare I use because so much of it get absorbed into the bloodstream. I try to stay away from harsh chemicals when I can. Since I found these products and have used them consistently, my skin looks incredible!

Morning Routine

Face Wash-

When I wake up, I always wash my face. My favorite facial cleanser I’ve ever found is Dream Clean. It says that it is for normal to oily skin types. I am naturally extremely dry and I absolutely love it! It’s all natural, harsh chemical free, and leaping bunny certified. It has Soapberry in it, which naturally causes it to come to a lather. Usually lathering is a chemical process. It also has Aloe Vera in it so it’s soothing enough for my dry skin and also works great for those with sensitive skin. Bonus, I love the smell. All natural doesn’t always mean it smells the best. LOL

Moisturizer

After I wash, I gently pat dry and then I moisturize with Skin Therapy. This is a thick and rich moisturizer. Packed full of good ingredients like Safflower Oil, Evening Primrose, and Pomegranate Sterols which are all great for hydration. Plus Oat Protein to sooth inflamed skin. If I’m feeling extra dry one of my holy grail products comes in to help, Dew Date. This is one skincare product that I will never live without again! It has Palmarose Oil which refreshes and reduces inflammation. It can be used alone, as a moisturizer, or paired with your favorite moisturizer for a boost. I always let my moisturizers soak in for a few minutes before I start my makeup!

Evening Routine

The Double Cleanse

I always double cleanse my face at night! The theory behind the double cleanse is that the first cleanse gets your makeup off, or if you aren’t wearing makeup then it’s washes away the pollutants in the air that we pick up throughout the day. The second cleanse is so that your pores can be cleaned, and so you can soak up all the good things your facial cleanser has to offer. The cleanser I use at night is, Midnight Oil Cleanser. It’s a Marula Oil cleanser. Without even getting my face wet, I use a pump and start apply it to my face in circular motions to remove my makeup. I then rinse it off, and apply another pump for my double cleanse. Marula Oil has so many benefits, I actually wrote a whole blog post dedicated just to them! You can check out the 8 Incredible Benefits of Marula Oil.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating is the key to great looking skin! Even oily skin should exfoliate. You need to get that layer of dead skin cells off to make your skin glow, and its the key to making your makeup foundation look amazing! After I cleanse, I use Skin Polish. Its actually an exfoliating mask. It has Jojoba Beads which naturally exfoliates your skin. I massage it in my skin to get all that good exfoliating happening, then I let it sit for 15-20 minutes before I wash it off. I do this about every other day.

Anti-Aging

Every night before bed I apply my anti-aging routine. First I apply Sotoks. There’s a been a clinical study on the effectiveness of Sotoks and this is what they found. Sotoks is like Botox in a bottle: it lightens, tightens, and brightens.

Then I add a few drops of One Drop Wonder. There is only one ingredient in One Drop Wonder and that is Pomifera Oil. I love to mix it with my face serum but you can also use it by itself as its own facial oil, even in your hair and on your nails.

There you have it! My secrete to fighting my dry skin! If you have any questions, I’m more than happy to answer them. You can always comment on this post or message me on Instagram, Facebook.

Til next time,

Mell
