I don’t know about you, but my time is precious and limited. With having a full time career, a small business on the side, and a moody toddler, I need my skin care regimen as simple as possible! It is important to note that I found the hard way that you get what you pay for with skin care and cosmetics. You can have simple without degrading the quality. Enter in LimeLight by Alcone.
My husband and I were in the market for new skin care. We both struggled with oily/acne prone skin, but my husband also battled eczema flare ups. We had tired literally every brand, including prescription brands with no relief. I met a woman a at an event who was talking to me about an all natural skin care line that was once only available to professional makeup artists. The word, “professional” caught my attention but I have to admit I did a silent “eye roll” when I heard the word “natural.”
We soon became facebook friends and I caught one of her lives in which she was offering free samples of LimeLight by Alcone’s natural skin care line. I thought to myself, “Why not, we have tried everything else.” A couple of days later I had my samples in hand.
Step 1: The Cleanser
LimeLight by Alcone does an exceptional job at providing transparency with their products’ ingredients. The Dream Clean is their widely popular cleanser formulated for normal/oily skin. According to their website, Dream Clean has the following ingredients and benefits:
“Aloe Vera – helps heal the skin, creates a “shield” to keep pollutants out and moisture in, and promotes redevelopment of new, healthy skin cells.
Soapberry – this plant contains natural saponins that cleanse the skin. These extracts have been proven to inhibit melanin production, reducing the appearance of age spots and sun damage. Saponins also fight bacteria, which makes this a great cleanser for acne prone skin.
Extract of White Tea – this extract offers antioxidant benefits to the skin cells.
Spirulina Platensis Algae – is known to provide firming qualities to the skin as well as substantial hydration.”
Directions: Massage into skin using upward, circular strokes. Remove gently with warm wash cloth or splashes of warm water and follow with a splash of cool water. Use twice a day
- The first thing you will notice about the Dream Clean is the wonderful smell! You automatically feel like you have been transported to the spa!
- You will love how your skin feels after washing! It is hard to explain but it just FEELS so clean!
- If you are not truly oily, Dream Clean may leave your skin feeling tight and dry…check out the Quench Cleanse here for dry/mature skin.
Step 2: The Moisturizer
The Calm Balm is a light moisturizer containing aloe, cucumber, and a combination of restorative plant extracts. This is also a great option for those folks that suffer with sensitive skin. According to their website the Calm Balm offers:
“Candida Saitoana Extract – stimulates cell detoxification and is proven to smooth the skin.
Aloe vera and Opuntia ficus-indica stem extract – together these two extracts provide long-lasting, penetrating hydration and help calm dry and sensitive skin.
Rare Indonesian Kendi Oil – provides omega 3 fatty acids to help improve the health of skin cells.
Carrot Seed Oil – rich in Vitamin A that improves the health of skin cells.”
- You can almost instantly feel the calming of your irritated skin cells!
- Because it is the lightest of their moisturizers, you will definitely save this for oily or sensitive skin.
Directions: Apply to face and neck after cleansing twice a day
