3 Pink Beauty Buys That Give Back


3 Pink Beauty Buys from Elemis, C’est Moi Beauty and The Better Skin Co for the month of October that are amazing products and also give back to a good cause.

3 Pink Beauty Buys That Give Back






Elemis’ Limited Edition Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm Supersize ($99; elemis.com) is a new version of the classic Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm which is one of my favorite makeup removers. This one is rose scented, and designed in collaboration with Lily and Lionel. It  cleanses the same way as the original and has a lovely, calming rose fragrance. It comes with a soft wash cloth, but I also follow up with a second cleanser. I did find this one to be a tad sensitive around the eye area, while I had no problems with the original for eye makeup removal. Just something to keep in mind if you have sensitive skin. Elemis has pledged to donate $25,000 to The Pink Agenda through October and this is a fabulous product with a great cause.

C’est Moi Beauty and The Better Skin Co. are two brands new to me. The C’est Moi Beauty Luminary Lip Crayon ($9.99; target.com) in True is a gorgeous, glossy mid tone pink with a wash of color and lots of shine. The formula wears comfortably and is quite hydrating. 20% of sales from all of C’est Moi’s Lip products go to the American Cancer Society through the month of October. The Better Skin Co. Better Skin Amaze Balm ($36; thebetterskinco.com) is an all purpose cream for all skin types. It has a mild citrus scent and moisturizes beautifully. There’s a rich, balmy feel that leaves skin feeling super soft to the touch. Also perfect for cuticles, knees and elbows. This one featured here is the Limited Edition Pink Gold Amaze Balm and 100% of the proceeds go to Young Survival Coalition.

Live Clean Baby Eczema Shampoo & Wash, Eczema Cream


  Live Clean Baby Eczema Shampoo & Wash, Eczema Cream


Live Clean Baby Eczema line is a fragrance-free, sensitive skin friendly skincare range for babies and toddlers. The Eczema Shampoo & Wash ($21.49; amazon.com) and Eczema Cream ($14; amazon.com) are great products for anyone with sensitive skin. The Shampoo &Wash is a foaming, gentle, moisturizing cleanser for hair and body. Its a no tears formula that also cleanses without any residue. It does’t strip skin of moisture and a little goes a really long way. The Eczema Cream with multi-oat complex is a lightweight body lotion. Its not the most quick absorbing, but definitely great for anyone wanting a lotion that moisturizes all day. Both formulas are fragrance-free and truly gentle for use on kids and adults. Overall, a range I’d definitely recommend if you have sensitive skin or want a basic fragrance-free line that works.

Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Ultimate Reset Collection

Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Ultimate Reset Collection

The Ultimate Reset Collection is new from Shu Uemura Art Of Hair. Its a luxurious range formulated for dry, frizzy hair. Shu Uemura Art Of Hair makes some amazing haircare products and these were no exception. The Ultimate Reset Extreme Repair Shampoo ($48;shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com) is a thick, concentrated shampoo that cleanses without residue and leathers beautifully. Its a rich formula that would just need a light conditioner afterwards. I found the Ultimate Reset Extreme Repair Conditioner ($48; shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com) to be moderately thick, very detangling and smoothening. It washes off easily, does have a silicone-y slip to it but doesn’t weigh hair down too much. The Ultimate Reset Extreme Repair Treatment ($48; shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com) is an ultra hydrating, rich mask that I like to use after a clarifying shampoo. It leaves my hair feeling super soft and very shiny. Like with most hydrating haircare, I’d recommend a clarifying shampoo every few washes with the Ultimate Reset line, just to keep product buildup from happening. Overall, a fabulous, hydrating haircare line for anyone looking for a luxurious line to pamper and restore moisture back to hair.
