A rare cheap thrill + charity + cute packaging mashup lemming — L'Occitane's Shea Butter Violet Solidarity Balm: "Enriched with shea butter, this violet fragranced balm helps nourish, soften and protect the lips, body and hair. In partnership with the UN Women, 100% of the profits from the sale of this balm will finance NGOs projects to promote women’s leadership in the world, with the support of the L'OCCITANE Foundation." $6 (how can you refuse?) for 20g.
A message from Andy Tauer of Tauer Perfumes, sent out this morning on Twitter (and Facebook): "wishing you a peaceful advent. And let us all make a little difference and share the joy of the season."
