Although many of our efforts were focused on being charitable during Breast Cancer Awareness month this past October, you should also know that there are plenty of other causes you can contribute to year-round by purchasing charitable beauty products. For me it’s animal welfare, for Holly Robinson Peete, it’s the Holly Rod Foundation which provides medicLatest Entriesal, physical and emotional support to those suffering with debilitating life circumstances especially Parkinson’s Disease.
Through the sale of the various beauty products mentioned in this post, you, too can give back in a big way.
Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion ($55, kiehls.com), made with fair-trade organic Argan oil, is an effective moisturizer and antioxidant giving your body a healthy-looking sheen and improved texture. It comes in four designs, and is made in collaboration with Erykah Badu. 100% of the proceeds (up to $100,000) benefits the Waterkeeper Alliance, which defends their communities against anyone who threatens their right to clean water. Check out KiehlsGivesBack.com for more information.
If the fight against Lupus is a cause that’s close to your heart, then purchase Carol’s Daughter Candy Paint Lip Gloss ($13.50, sephora.com). It’s a lipgloss treatment that hydrates, moisturizes, and protects your lips with shea butter, aloe vera, and vitamin E. With every purchase of Candy Paint, a portion of the sales goes to the Lupus Foundation of America, the leading voluntary health organization dedicated to finding the causes and cure for Lupus.
For only five dollars, support Sephora’s efforts to educate and empower women with The Sephora Project Change Purse ($5, sephora.com). It’s a small change purse that has the power to change the world one young lady at a time. With every purchase, three dollars is donated to Girl’s For A Change, a national organization that empowers girls to create social change.
If you feel strongly about the HIV & AIDS crisis, then lend your support through the purchase of Viva Glam Lipstick III ($14, maccosmetics.com). All proceeds are donated to the MAC AIDS Fund which supports men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS.
And for pet lovers like me (incidentally, my dog’s name is Stanley), the ANGELS FOR ANIMALS Natural Soy Blend 12 oz. Jar Candle ($19, flauci.com) is not only the perfect accent to any room, it does the right thing by donating a portion of all proceeds to animal welfare. This line of candles was started as a result of Hurricane Katrina’s many abandoned animals. With five scents to choose from you can’t wrong. My personal favorite: Juicy Apple.
However you choose to be charitable, you’ll come away with a new beauty product that makes you look & feel good while you do good. Tell a friend.
