Lush The Rising Sun Soap to Support Japan

Lush Rising Sun Soap

Asian culture is very near and dear to my heart.

When the quake and tsunami hit Japan I felt so incredibly worried since I consider the friends I have there extended family. I was grief stricken and heartbroken when images started appearing on the news and Internet.

I’ve since donated funds to Japan but I wish I could more do so much more.

In my heart, I know that the people of Japan display true gaman in situations like this unlike any other culture I know. They are strong, patience souls who will rebuild and endure.

Another thing near and dear to my heart is Lush Cosmetics who have stepped in to support local organizations in Japan. These groups are working to rebuild affected areas and support Japanese citizens, some of whom are members of the Lush family.

To aid in the relief effort, Lush Cosmetics are selling limited edition products with 100% of the proceeds going to various Japanese charities.

The Rising Sun Soap ($5.95) resembles the Japanese flag and softens the skin with a sweet cherry fragrance. All proceeds from the soap will go directly to Peace Boat, a Japan-based non-profit organization. Since the earthquake, Peace Boat has been organizing volunteers, transporting aid and providing hot meals to those affected by the disaster.

Lush Rising Sun Soap will be available starting April 18th at your local Lush store and is available now as www.lushusa.com

From the bottom of my heart I hope you’ll display some support to the people and country of Japan by indulging in a slice or donating to another worthy cause.

Dr. Jart at Sephora BB Creams Come to the US Market

Dr Jart BB Cream Sephora

Finally the US is catching the BB Cream bug. I’ve been using BB Creams for about three or four years now. They are my sole foundation option simply because they are one of the few base products that don’t oxidize quickly on my skin. Add to the fact that they are super creamy and moisturizing for my dry skin and I’m a happy girl indeed.

If you’ve never tried a BB Cream or you simply don’t know what one is please visit an old post I did by clicking here to brush up on what a BB Cream is and does.

I’m really excited today to announce that Dr. Jart has brought his BB Creams to Sephora!

Check it!
