Helloooo...I smell a win-win situation here. Get yourself to a Lush store and grab yourself a bar of The Rising Sun soap ($6). It resembles the Japanese flag and softens the skin with a sweet cherry fragrance. We are talking 100% of proceeds from this soap will go directly to Peace Boat, a Japan-based non-profit organization. Since the earthquake, Peace Boat has been organizing volunteers, transporting aid and providing hot meals to those affected by the disaster. So whatcha waiting for?
Still feeling charitable? Try out all three limited edition Charity Pots ($5.00/each) full of rich body lotion that is made with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter with a hint of ylang ylang and geranium. Buy all three for yourself or as a treat for friends, family and co-workers. 100% of the sale of each Charity Pot will be donated to: Rescue Stock Yard, HANSHIN QUAKE Rehabilitation and Animal Peace.
While you're there, check out our current favourite, Tiny Hands ($6) - a serum that you melt between your palms and rub in, with moisturizing shea and cocoa butter. Vanilla-scented and packed full of argan oil and aloe vera too. It's the perfect thing to soothe dry hands and we love the shape! For more information, check out LUSH Cosmetics Online: www.Lush.ca
