With Mental Health having more awareness, and the focus of topics of the moment due to Mental Awareness week, we want to make you aware of simple ways you can help others when buying your everyday beauty products.
Look Good Feel Better
Treating yourself might give you that good feeling. However, what if by treating yourself you could help others. The organisation Look Good Feel Better is something you need to know about. They offer fundraising events for Cancer Patients where you can plan any event you like. This amazing organisation also run make-up workshops and masterclasses to help patients “look and feel better”. Not only do they do all this amazing work you can buy one of their LGFB Beauty Boxes. These are great present ideas (especially with Christmas not far off) and only cost £25, which can be bought from their website or Debenhams. Containing travel size minis from the world’s leading brands, and worth over £80, what other reasons do you need to buy from this amazing organisation.
These make-up applications have taken Instagram by storm, and featured by Vogue making it something we need to add to our make-up bag. Not only do the products themselves have much recognition the brands ethics, and charitable donations don’t go without saying. All the profits go to Kohl Kares, a charity providing free workshops for transitioning transgender individuals and recovering cancer patients.
This is an ethical luxury brand. We especially love the Black Poppy and Wild Fig range. The products not only make you feel pampered, but by buying into the brand you are helping others. They are a social enterprise providing training and work opportunities for people who are visually impaired, have disabilities or are otherwise disadvantaged. All the profits go back into the business so more opportunities can be provided.
