LimeLight by Alcone: Which Skincare Products?

Out in a massive world of skincare options, I know it can be confusing. I also know that no one product, or set of products, is perfect for everyone. Sometimes a routine from a particular company works, sometimes some of those products mixed with others is a better fit. It all comes down to your skin and often personal preference.

I, personally, am primarily using LimeLight by Alcone skincare products. It’s not to say some Rodan + Fields Soothe doesn’t find it’s way in from time to time, or a mask/scrub from other reputable companies, but when it comes to day to day, LimeLight is where it’s at for me.

You want to know more? Want to know what products may work for you? There’s a form for that. I created a form so we can connect and discuss what skincare products LimeLight offers and where they help/benefit you. Keep in mind, these are naturally based, chemical free, cruelty free products, which makes me feel very good about them.

So let’s connect and chat skincare, possibly makeup too! I’m open to the conversation, how about you?

Weekly Beauty Tip

Many think to apply concealer before, however you should apply it after. The foundation on its own will cover many problem spots, you can then touch up and conceal where needed. Be sure to blend well with a sponge! I highly recommend Blenderful as an option.

Coffee & Mascara

We all have our ‘go to’ products when it comes to beauty products, mine is mascara. No matter how tired I may feel, mascara (and a bit of coffee!) can perk me right up.

My personal faves?

LimeLight by Alcone Unboxing- Live Tomorrow!

As mentioned in my prior post, I recently signed up with LimeLight by Alcone. I am addicted to their Perfect Mascara, I find their Enduring Lip Color to be amazing and I love the pigmentation of the eye shadows. I’ve only sampled the skincare, however can’t wait to use it daily as I have enjoyed what I have tried and love the idea of chemical-free and naturally based skincare.

Kicking off a new blog as I start to explore more about the world of beauty.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a fan of brands like Urban Decay, MAC, Benefit, Kat Von D Beauty and Bare Minerals. The former goth girl in me immediately adopted Urban Decay back in the 90s when they first came onto the scene, frequently found sporting Roach or Oil Slick. My favorite gloss pot was Carney when it wasn’t a dark red or black. As I matured and found myself moving into corporate America I toned down my looks (which to be fair were never that extreme) and moved towards neutrals, less liquid foundation, lighter lips, more powder bases, a bit more natural. However never gave up on mascara. mascara always.

My interest in makeup never wained, I tend to frequent Sephora just to look around and see what is new.  I also recently discovered a love of Ulta now that one is open within a dangerously close vicinity. However I’ve continued to stay fairly neutral outside my continued love of colorful eye liners from Urban Decay.

As I work my way towards my mid-40s I find myself looking deeper into skincare and wanting to have bit more fun with makeup again. When it comes to skin care I’ve tried Clinique (dries the crap outta my skin), I gave my friends at Rodan + Fields a shot for the past 6 months and never quite found my right regime, and now I am starting to move forward with LimeLight by Alcone. In all transparency, I recently signed up with them after trying their products for 6 weeks as I just fell in love. I am expecting the same quality of their skincare as I found in their make-up. More to come on that soon.

So what are my goals for this site? To share what I know and what I’ve learned over time. Beauty tips, thoughts on make-up I try, share out my interest in Limelight by Alcone. I look forward to interacting as well, learning from the audience, sharing experiences both ways.

I am by no means an expert, I am not a listed esthetician, I am not a professional makeup artist, just a middle age women exploring beauty. I hope you will hang out with me on my journey.
