October is almost upon us once again and having lived through the diagnosis, treatment and subsequent all-clear this year of my oldest and bestest friend, I am going to be all over Breast Cancer Awareness month like a Durannie on SLB (frequent readers will understand).
I love the team at Elemis. In the old days of donkeys and carts – well, almost – when I was a SpaceNK Manager, they carried Elemis. One day the front door to the shop opened and Noella Gabriel burst through like a friendly bat out of hell: ‘JesusMaryandJoseph you’ve no bread and butter!’ Noella is Irish, actually she’s Oirish – if you know what I mean – and in Noella speak that meant we had run low on stock of basics, cleansers, toners and moisturisers etc… I knew there and then that this was a woman to hang with.
Elemis have always put their money where their mouth is and have ‘given back.’
This year for Breast Cancer Awareness month they are pledging £10,000 to the cause. £10,000! Take that in for a minute – it doesn’t mean – ‘here’s a product and 5% of the sales (after costs) are going to the charity’. It means they are GIVING £10,000 to BCC.
The Think Pink Beauty Kit is available now and contains a 15ml Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment Neck and Bust ‘Boob Tube’, a 30ml special pink edition of their No.1 selling Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and a 50ml Skin Nourishing Shower Cream. Not to mention the patent pink bag that should have ‘Caroline’ printed on the front. It will retail for £29.90 but is worth a whopping £59.80.
Go get your groove on. And while your at it get your hands all over your boobs. Take care of yourself Ladies. Elemis have so far raised over £50,000 for Breast Cancer Care – Elemis, I salute you.
