We review a wide variety of brands, products and even treatment techniques here on Skincare.net. Some of the brands that we’ve reviewed have made their way to our top lists. Others have plummeted to the depths of no return. Nevertheless, we make it a point to review as many skin care brands and products as possible. The brand we’ll be covering today is called Limelight by Alcone. It’s a brand that’s been around for a long time. In fact, it got its initial start way back in 1952.
Limelight offers a number of different types of products for consumers today. Those searching for skin and cosmetic goods have likely come across them from time to time. This brand is somewhat different than the rest in a sense that they are not centric about the ingredients used or the products created. What I mean by that is that they don’t operate under the common philosophy that many brands operate today. You know, focusing only on one product or ingredient and building a brand around that.
Nope, that’s not the way that Limelight does things. Instead, they’ve simply decided to make herbals and botanicals a focal point of their products. They incorporate ingredients such as tea tree oil, oats, pomegranate, bamboo, sunflower, lemongrass, and many more. If you’re into the botanicals, then you might like this brand, but don’t get too excited just yet. Based on some of the research we’ve done, there are some consumers that aren’t exactly thrilled with the side effects that they’re seeing from using the LimeLight by Alcone. I’m not saying that you should avoid this product. Not at all, but what you should consider doing is your homework before buying them.
I’ll try to focus on my own personal opinion on the products as well as the third party reviews that exist out there on the Internet.
LimeLight By Alcone Reviews
Okay, so here’s the problem that you might face during your personal investigation. If you do a search online for “Limelight By Alcone,” you’re not going to see a lot of actual reviews covering the products. Instead, you’ll most likely come across a the Glassdoor review which is written by employees of the company. You may also come across a few videos, but that’s about it really.
The main reason why you will not find a lot of reviews is that the company operates from a sales perspective using a direct selling method, which means that they have employed people to push the products locally sort of like Cutco and Avon do. These individuals earn commissions for selling the products and they often get buyers to create their own teams and sell products as well. It’s what many may refer to as an MLM company.
That being said, you’ll find enough information below to help you make a buying decision today, so no need to go anywhere really. Before diving into the products and how they sell, allow me to share some insight into what I discovered when checking out the corporate website.
If you take a look at the website, you’ll notice that it’s actually pretty user-friendly. I mean, they’ve done a good job of displaying their products, philosophy and brand for sure. The company has even decided to work in the fact that they give back globally for a cause with each purchase.
As for product lines, they’ve covered the following types of products:
The company shares some information about the owners as well, who are Michele gay and Madison Mallardi, both of which have taken over the family business that was formed in 1952.
I like that the company has prominent contact information displayed on the website as well as the location of the headquarters. This is something that most skin care companies today don’t bother with providing.
However, I’m still not 100% convinced that this is the way to go just yet. Here’s what else you need to know about the individual products and some of the ingredients that they incorporate into each of them.
I’ll start by just giving you a rundown of the products that they create:
Perfect Eyeliner Pen
10 Years Younger Finish Spray
Forty Cure Creme
Sotoks and One Drop Wonder Collection
Simply Pretty Collection
Masque of Zen
Eye Aspire Eye Serum
One Drop Wonder
There are many other products that they manufacture as well. I’ll try and cover some of the specifics of a few products below.
Bamboo Therapy – This one is quite unique in a sense that I haven’t seen many products use the term bamboo in the name. The main active ingredient in this product is walnut shell powder and it’s meant to help with exfoliating. You’ll also find rice as well as algae in this product.
Masque of Zen – Since we’re huge fans of face masks in general, covering this product is a must. Supposedly, this product is a cleansing mask which is meant to help reduce acne while cleansing the skin. Some of the ingredients in this product are tea tree oil, lavender, glycerin, and a few more. Reasonably priced, it might be something you’re interested in if you like the associated ingredients.
Quench Cleanse – This product is a cleanser that’s meant to help people with dry skin. It’s for those that might be aging – aka all of us I guess, but more particularly the people who might be older. If you’re into aloe vera, sunflower seed oil, rose flower water, ginseng root extract, and more, then you’ll be happy to hear that you can find all those ingredients in this product. It’s reasonably priced too.
The Side Effects
As I mentioned before, some consumers were complaining about the side effects that they noticed while using this product. Sure, none of them are really serious issues or concerns, but you still want to be aware of them in the event that you try the products out. Some people have claimed that the facial scrubs cause inflammation as well as irritation. Others complained that the botanicals caused allergic reactions. I think what’s important here is that you test a small area of your skin before taking any action and applying the product everywhere or using it regularly.
Buying The Limelight Skin Products
Based on my research, you’ve got two choices. The first thing you can do is check out the corporate website and make a purchase there. The second thing you can do is try to get in touch with a local brand ambassador or seller and ask them what they recommend. How you choose to buy them is your choice alone.
Conclusion: Do Your Homework
One thing that I’ll leave you with today is that you’ll want to check out the Pissed Consumer review on the company. According to what Pissed Consumer has presented, only 3% of the customer service calls actually led to resolution. That’s not a very high number. The main dislikes are described as being related to the corporate policies, packaging and product description.
