Bobbi Brown Pinks With Purpose for Breast Cancer Month

Another Breast Cancer Awareness Month product just landed on my desk - two actually, in the shape of these lovely Pinks With Purpose from Bobbi Brown. An Estee Lauder company, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has launched this cute lipstick duo for this year's Breast Cancer Campaign.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Beauty Buys

It's October again, and in the beauty world that means a plethora of pink products for Brest Cancer Awareness Month. It seems a little low-key this year. Maybe I'm just not getting the right releases. It's not only Estee Lauder Companies that run breast cancer charity initiatives in October, but it was Evelyn H Lauder who launched the campaign in 1992 with the co-creation of the Pink Ribbon, the universal symbol for breast health. The Breast … [Read more...]

Temple Spa support MIND with Repose

This month, Temple Spa is supporting the charity MIND, coinciding with World Mental Health Day on October 10. The offer they have put together is great, and features their best-selling, cult product, Repose. I do have a bit of a problem on this, because Temple Spa is a UK-wide brand, but MIND is an England/Wales charity. It's a shame some of the donations aren't going to SAMH as well -  the Scottish mental health charity. Because Scottish … [Read more...]

SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Collection

I get A LOT of products and I like to try to sometimes feature brands that are a bit different, or have a story to tell. SheaMoisture certainly does. It's the legacy of the brand owner's grandmother, Sofi Tucker. Grandma Sofi was widowed at 19, and, to support her family, made and sold her handcrafted shea butter soaps and other creations in Sierra Leone. Sofi became known as a healer who shared the power of shea and African black soap with … [Read more...]
