Beauty with a purpose

There is nothing I love more than buying beauty that supports something fab- an even bigger excuse to buy new makeup! Two new things dropped into my mail box this week- both are beauty items with a great purpose behind them. 

From September 20th-3rd October 2015, when you buy two Clarins items (one to be skincare) you will receive a FEED10 pouch containing 5 iconic products: Moisture-Rich Body Lotion 100ml, Relax Bath and Shower Concentrate 100ml, Gentle Refiner 30ml, HydraQuench Cream-Mask 30ml and iconic Hand and Nail Treatment Cream 50ml. These are great sized products that will allow you to try out some new things or have extras of your favourites. For every customer who receives one with their purchase of two products, Clarins provides 10 nutritious school meals through the UN World Food Programme to children in developing countries. I absolutely love this idea- it's the perfect excuse to stock up on your favourite Clarins products and help out children in need. Bravo Clarins!

I am addicted to buying makeup brushes- I'm all about the tools of the trade! I often buy my Real Techniques at Gordon's Chemist as they frequently have good deals on them but I think the Look Good Feel Better brushes are my new favourite. The brushes are so soft, easy to use and up to 12% of the sale of each brush and set will be donated to the fabulous cancer charity they are named after. The brushes are hand-made, allergy free and cruelty free. I can't wait to buy more brushes from the range- making my face look more fabulous and helping a great cause that effects so many women. Brushes are available now in Gordon's Chemists online and in selected stores.
