THE GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK
A little aside (and to continue a somewhat charitable theme this week): should you be gifted something beauty-wise this year that you feel you might never use but don’t like to return, then please consider donating it to Beauty Banks. Founded by journalist Sali Hughes and PR guru Jo Jones, it’s like a food bank, but for personal care products instead (the only things they can’t accept are perfume and nail polish and remover). The project is committed to supporting those living in poverty so they can achieve at least a basic level of daily hygiene. To find out more or learn how to donate, visit beautybanks.net or follow @thebeautybanks on Instagram.
