I’ve already shared with you my favorite Summer Sun Skin Care items I use all summer long. But today I am excited to share with you some new products I’ve found through LimeLight by Alcone. I am always on the hunt for great makeup and skin care products. I have found a line that I truly love and look forward to using!
I met with my friend Tenaya who is now a Beauty Guide for LimeLight by Alcone. She treated me to a make over with skin care and make up products that are all manufactured with your health and the health of the planet in mind. I was excited to spend the day outside on her deck enjoying the beautiful day kid free, and getting some extra pampering.
The first thing I tried is the Dream Clean set which is a basic starter collection. I could feel my skin immediately hydrate and it felt really clean. My skin felt smooth after using all of the products which is key for me. I loved the feel of the masque of zen. All of these products are plant based and smell amazing.
Next up Tenaya matched me up with a foundation color. I will say this was the most perfectly smooth foundation I have ever tried. Not only did it go on easily but it made my skin absolutely flawless- no redness, no freckles it was all covered. I am not a fan of foundations that have a strong “plastic” smell. This cream foundation had none of that. It felt light and was totally fragrance free.
I learned that this makeup line is used by Hollywood makeup artists. In fact, the family owned company has been the number one makeup supplier for generations. Adding in a plant based skin care line and removing non essential chemicals from the makeup formula is what gives this company it’s modern edge.
The Alcone product I am most in love with right now is the Make-Off make up remover cloth. It is gentle enough to use every day and will take off your make up in one swipe. With the summer heat here I’ve started carrying these little prepackaged cloths in my bag and even in my beach cooler. As soon as I am done with a day of sun with the kids I pull out one of these cloths. The rosewater is refreshing and hydrating and I can feel my hot skin start to calm. Super convenient!
All of the Alcone products come with a 100% happiness guarantee, so if you don’t love your products you get your money back. Oh I almost forgot to share with you the best part about the packaging! Not only is it gorgeous, but it is 100% recyclable. The color pallets and the foundation pallets all pop out of the cardboard case; all of which can be tossed into your recycle bin. Each one is small enough to carry in your purse or add to your makeup bag!

Roxanne- great review of this awesome company! I’m in love with the chemical-free skincare. My favorite skincare product is Must Dew… Hydrate your skin while getting an immediate glow. The pro-makeup is exceptional too… My faves are the botanical foundation, perfect mascara, perfect eyeliner pen, and the new paraben-free eyeshadows!
I love learning about new skincare products. RIght now I am pretty happy with my Rodan and Field line but if I’m not, I’ll be sure to check this one out.
Is Limelight cruelty free too? It sounds like a great brand and it is great that they use a plant base.
I hadn’t heard of these but they sound like great products. I’ll have to enter your giveaway!
Sounds like a wonderful brand, Thanks for sharing
Oh this looks awesome! I will definitely have to check it out. It seems like they are a great, ethical brand and I haven’t heard of them before!
Sounds like an awesome brand, especially for a choosy customer like myself!
I love products that don’t have all those chemicals, especially products I put on my skin and face.
This makes me want to expand my cosmetic horizons. It’s very cool that this is a family-owned company, and that they use 100% recyclable packaging – woohoo!
These are such great products! Thanks for the link to the giveaway!! =)
