Do Good and Look Good

We’ve all done it. We’ve spent a little more money than we should on that beauty product that is just too perfect to resist. It doesn’t matter that you already own 5 bottles of pink nail polish—you don’t have that shade. What if you could get the great products that you want and feel 100% guilt-free?

Well, you can. More and more companies are launching products that support causes through their sales. We’ve made a list of five great beauty products. We don’t know what we love more—the products or the great causes they support.

1. Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Nail Polish ($3)

Not only is this pale pink perfect for your summer manis and pedis, Avon donates $2.27 of every purchase to breast cancer research enabling doctors the opportunity to find a cure.

2. MAC “Viva Glam” Lipstick ($14.50)

Lady Gaga and MAC teamed up to create this great warm beige lipstick.  MAC will donate every cent of the selling price to the MAC AIDS Fund to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.

3. Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes ($12)

Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes are natural makeup-removing wipes that are gentle enough to be used to remove eye makeup.   With a the slogan “Erase your face, not the polar bear race!” and the adorable white bears on the package, it shouldn’t be any surprise that a portion of every package sold will go to support the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Polar Bear SOS Initiative.

4. Purminerals Start Now kit ($37)

Purminerals is one of the sponsors of the Go Red for Women movement, and for each Start Now kit bought, they’re donating $2 to the cause.  The kit is basically everything you need to start wearing mineral makeup: 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup, Mineral Glow, Universal Marble Powder and The Chisel Makeup Brush.

5. Lush Charity Pot Body Lotion ($20.95)

With cocoa butter and almond oil, this lotion is creamy and will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.  It gets even better when you find out that every penny, including tax, that you pay for this luxurious body lotion goes to grassroots charities all around the world.

So go ahead. Do good and look good.  You’ll be saving the world before you even leave your house for the day.  Now that’s what we call beautiful.
