What is the LimeLight Fast Start?


What is the LimeLight Fast Start?

You just ordered your LimeLight by Alcone starter kit, now what? It’s time to start working toward your fast start. Before your kit even gets packed for shipment, you’ll want to start working on ways to earn your first tier of fast start. Did you know that you can earn up to $800 in Fast Start bonuses? (keep reading to find out the secret of unlimited bonuses). Let’s look at all five opportunities of fast start and what’s in it for you!

  1. Achieve $1000 in Personal Retail Value (PRV) in your first 40 days, and you will earn $100 in Standard Retail Value (SRV) and $50 for marketing materials. This is not impossible. It can be achieved during your first launch party. Note: If you’re not familiar with PRV, this is the amount that your customers pay at retail – not wholesale. You definitely want this so you can use the money to reinvest in your supplies. $1000 will also move you from Beauty Guide In Training (BGIT) to Beauty Guide (BG)
  2. Personally enroll 1 BGIT, who qualifies for the rank of BG in your first 70 days, and you will earn $50 in product plus $50 in cash
  3. Achieve $3000 PRV in 60 days, and you will earn $100 SRV in product plus $50 for marketing materials
  4. Personally enroll 2 or more BGIT who promote to BG in your first 90 days, and you will earn $100 SRV in product and $100 cash
  5. Achieve the rank of Star Beauty Guide within you first 3 full months in business, and earn $100 cash; OR achieve the rank of Star Beauty Guide within 2 full months, and earn $200

Just think how easy these tiers can be to achieve when you are hitting them with a friend that you’ve personally enrolled. Let’s backtrack for a moment. It’s really important that you have your launch party right away, because as soon as you submit your application to become a BGIT the clock starts ticking for all tiers. I have seen some BGIT’s hit tier 1 fast start before even receiving their kit, so this is totally possible. If you’re having doubts, talk to your sponsor right away. You are amazing, and you can do this. Your goal is to not only find some amazing customers, but to also find a runner like you who wants to build a career in LimeLight. That way YOU can work towards tier 1 & 2, while BOTH of you are working towards your fast start simultaneously.

Ready for the secret?  For every single person you personally enroll on your team, you will also have the opportunity to earn a 100% match on the cash and marketing material portions of their fast start bonuses.  And there is NO LIMIT to the amount of fast start bonuses you achieve!

Get used to this amazing compensation plan because this is just the beginning.

5 DIY facial remedies you should never try

DIY Never Try

Are you trying to cut out the chemicals from your facial routine? Maybe you’ve heard about some simple do-it-yourself remedies that you can find in your cupboard or fridge. But are they really helping you or doing more harm? See how trying to save a buck can actually cost you more in the long run with these 5 remedies you should never try.

  1. DIY: Baking Soda for exfoliation – The grittiness of baking soda has been proven a great way to whiten your teeth but is not the correct pH to use on the delicate skin on your face. Baking soda has a pH factor of 9 while your skin is about 4.5 – 5. The higher alkaline damages the natural barrier which keeps bad bacteria out. Baking soda will also cause dryness creating additional skin issues.
    Natural Alternative – Use LimeLight by Alcone Skin Polish for a complete exfoliation and added moisture. The small round, biodegradable jojoba beads gently exfoliates the skin and sloughs away dead skin cells.  Nutrient rich oils from olives, lemon, and cypress will restore, hydrate, and protect your skin.
  2. DIY: Lemon for brightening – Brown spots make us look older and are caused by years of unprotected sun exposure. Citric acid found in lemons have lightening components but can cause a painful chemical reaction (phytophotodermatitis). The cheap lemon remedy can end up causing more harm than good if you have a reaction. Even if you don’t have a reaction the process of using lemons will take a long time to see results.
    Natural Alternative – Try LimeLight by Alcone Sotox for natural skin brightening. The citric acid contained in Sotox is rich in vitamin C and increases the production of collagen which is why it’s great for reducing skin discoloration and age spots. In addition, Sotox has a number of other natural ingredients to help reduce sagging skin, and reduce the occurrence of blemishes.
  3. DIY: Hairspray to set makeup – Hairspray is a great way to set your hair, and chances are some of it will hit your face. But intentionally spraying your face with hairspray to set your makeup for the day will not only dry out your skin from the alcohol, but it will also clog your pores, cause irritation and create breakouts.
    Professional Alternative – LimeLight by Alcone 10 Years Younger Finishing Spray is specifically designed to hold your makeup in place for up to 16 hours. It will also prevent your makeup from setting into any fine lines or wrinkles, and also prevents melting and sliding for fewer touchups. Forget creasing and fading with the paraben-free finishing spray.
  4. DIY: Toothpaste to treat pimples – Drying out a pesky zit will allow you to pick it off and quickly remove it. But the old remedy of dabbing your zit with a bit of toothpaste will dry out the zit but it will also strip the healthy skin around of its valuable moisture. At worst you can actually risk a chemical burn resulting in dark scars.
    Natural Alternative – Try LimeLight by Alcone Masque of Zen as a full mask treatment or a spot treatment. It’s enriched with Tea Tree Oil which naturally combats bacteria causing acne and Cinnamon Bark Extract from Sri Lanka which acts as a mild astringent and regulates bacteria without throwing off the skin cell balance.
  5. DIY: Petroleum Jelly – such as Vaseline has been thought to moisturize and protect sensitive skin. It actually does not add any moisture to your skin, in fact it keeps everything out and retains what’s already in your skin (even bad bacteria!). Think of it as a barrier, not a moisturizer.
    Natural Alternative – Try LimeLight by Alcone One Drop Wonder. This oil is made up of the extract from the Osage Orange fruit seed. The oil is full of super antioxidants, rich in Omega-6, and UV protective. It provides the essential oils needed to provide generous moisture, but also heals many skin issues such as rosacea, and repairs aged skin cells.

Now that you know which DIY remedies can cause more harm than good, what other remedies have you tried?

PS. Not all coconut oil is good for your skin! Beware of coconut oil clogging your pores and causing breakouts.

Something extraordinary from a nuisance

odw_blog (1)

When something extraordinary happens we know about it, we talk about it, and we love it. But when something extraordinary is born from something that is thought of as a nuisance, we wonder. It’s no coincidence that One Drop Wonder got such a fitting name. The Osage Orange tree which grows wild in the United States had only one purpose in the past and that was to keep spiders and insects away. However, there hasn’t been solid evidence that the fruit of the Osage Orange tree really keeps pests at bay. What has been evident are the results that men, women, and children have been achieving by using One Drop Wonder to heal a variety of problem skin conditions and repair the signs of aging. Wait, what? Back the bus up! As if reversing the signs of aging wasn’t enough for this magical oil, there is really more.


One Drop Wonder is literally one ingredient, 100% pure cold pressed Pomifera oil. Pomifera oil is the oil that comes from the seed of the Osage Orange tree’s fruit (the hedge ball). The seed is the only edible part of the fruit (similar to a pomegranate) but extremely difficult to remove. This is why most animals don’t bother with the hedge balls – a lot of work for little payoff. The science behind One Drop Wonder comes from Todd Johnson, creator of this amazing cosmeceutial oil.  Some of the properties that are present in One Drop Wonder are: rich in Omega-6, UV protective, anti-fungal, antibiotic, and antimicrobial. What do these properties mean to you? Well here are just some of the skin issues that One Drop Wonder is working for (long list warning):

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Contact Dermatitis
  • Acne
  • Adult Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Scrapes and Bumps
  • Cuts/Scratches
  • 1st & 2nd Degree Burns
  • Severe Diaper Rash
  • Bug Bites
  • Anything that itches
  • Herpes Related Cold Sores
  • Shingles*
  • Fungus on Skin*
  • Toe Fungus (use 1:1 with Tea Tree Oil)
  • UV protection
  • Sun Burn Relief
  • Post Radiation Therapy
  • General Antimicrobial
  • Staph infection*
  • MRSA*
  • Diabetic Ulcers
  • Allergic reactions (and allergic reactions to medications) – topical only
  • Bad Chemical Peels
  • Tattoos
  • Your issue not listed? ________

*Be sure to seek proper medical attention before using any essential oil as a remedy for a serious medical condition.

In addition to One Drop Wonder’s ability to heal on its own, it can also accompany your other skin products as a booster since it’s a carrier oil. It will encapsulate your current skin product and pull it deep into your skin therefore boosting the product’s ability to perform quicker and more effectively. Try boosting Sotox for anti-aging, or Forty Cure Creme for soothing therapeutic relief.
