We Love Wednesdays: Une Fundraising Lip Balm
(better late than never, right?:) )
Une Fundraising lip balm, 74 dirhams at Vavavoom, Beauty Bay and Debenhams, or check their website for stores near you
Like all Une products, this is made from natural origins and organic farming
Une is a natural product line from France.They have gotten together with Plan International and for each lip balm sold, they will donate 5 dirhams to support a program that educates young girls in the Briqueterie district of Yaounde, Cameroon. Together, they are aiming that by 2013, 3,500 girls from the area will have directly benefited from the program, which will in turn benefit 36,000 residents of the district.
This lip balm is made of organic shea butter and jojoba oil, beeswax and candelilla wax. It has "a moisturizing formula that acts for up to 4 hours". I like that it actually feels like it penetrates the skin to soften and moisturize my lips. It doesn't just sit on the top, like a lot of lip balms do.
The lip balm goes on clear and isn't greasy, which also makes it an excellent base for lipstick. I know that it is a little bit pricier than most lip balms, but the quality is amazing. This is literally the only lip balm I've been using at the moment. It really helped my chapped lips recover after I got sick for a while. Plus, when you buy it, you are supporting a great cause. I think this would also be a great present for someone because it's practical and the packaging is very luxe :)
