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:

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.

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!

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.
