Look and feel good with cosmetic brands that give back

The hottest beauty trends not only make you look great, they make you feel great, too. Each purchase is tied to a charitable initiative, from human rights to ovarian cancer research. These beauty brands are making it easier than ever to support worthy causes while practicing self-care.

Lush Charity Pot Body Lotion

Spread the love, literally, with this hydrating body lotion by Lush. This vegan formula employs moisturizing cocoa butter that refreshes the driest winter skin, plus it’s infused with a delicate floral perfume of ylang ylang and rosewood oils for a beautiful subtle scent. Simply smooth all over the body, paying attention to extra dry areas, to reap the rewards. The benefits are beyond skin deep. This rich cream contains seven ingredients sourced from Sustainable Lush Fund projects that support regenerative agriculture around the world. With every purchase of Charity Pot, Lush donates 100 percent of the price to small grassroots organizations that work to support human rights, animal protection and environmental justice.
