No, it’s not your imagination. The holidays are coming up faster than ever – there are actually six less shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year! If you are looking for last-minute gifts, consider gifts that give back. Estee Lauder sent the BIZ several fantastic gift items that are some of the most popular products from these EL lines. These Pink Ribbon items support The BCA Campaign’s mission to defeat breast cancer through education and medical research.
Here are three fantastic products that give back to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation ® (BCRF):
For a difficult to buy for aunt or mom, consider DARPHIN Silky Moisturizing Lotion Essential Body Beauty, a gift that any woman would love. It’s a wonderfully silky lotion that has Hydra StructureTM technology, which ‘harnesses the skin’s natural moisturizing ability, providing immediate and long-lasting hydration to help recapture the body’s baby soft skin.’ This lotion has elegant ingredients including Saltwort, French Lavender and Peach Leaf extracts, which do three things: hydrate the top layer of skin, replenish skin moisture at deeper levels, and provide a gentle exfoliation so skin is super smooth. This is $40, and Darphin donates $8.00 from every purchase to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.
If you need something for a close girlfriend or for a Secret Santa exchange, check out the Pink Ribbon SMASHBOX: Photo Finish Foundation Primer ($36.00; $5.00 to BCRF). This awesome primer works for every skin type, resulting in a flawless canvas for makeup. I adore the Pink Ribbon packaging and I also love what it does for skin. It fills in those fine lines and pores so skin looks younger and makeup looks better and lasts longer. Smashbox donates $5.00 from the purchase price to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. You can find this exclusively at ULTA Stores, www.ulta.com and at www.smashbox.com.
Wow this is just gorgeous. I am talking about the Evelyn Lauder Dream Collection item, Evelyn Lauder Dream Solid Perfume Compact($49.50; 100% to BCRF). The stunning Pink Ribbon design takes my breath away and inside is the iconic Pleasures fragrance. You can see the inside of the compact is inscribed, “Estée Lauder Breast Cancer Awareness 2013.” I wore this fragrance exclusively for years and years and having it again brought back so many memories. The design and the scent, combined with the fact that Estee Lauder gives 100% of the retail price to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, completely wowed me. Absolutely fantastic.
If your shopping isn’t finished yet, I really hope you will consider these gift ideas. The products are amazing and how wonderful to give a gift that also supports such a great cause. Happy holidays everyone! - Lisa
