Kiehl’s Creme de Corps “Grapefruit” Whipped Body Butter – Limited Edition, $ 38
The original version of this whipped body butter is one of my all-time faves. This subtly citrus-y remake is delicious and makes skin feel fabulous. And, 100 percent of the net proceeds go to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, which works to help end childhood hunger in America.
Jane Iredale Bright Future Eyeshadow Set – Limited Edition, $30
What makes a better gift than five stunning eyeshadows housed in a rose-colored Swarovski crystal-embellished package? Add to that the fact that 100 percent of the profits are donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization supporting women affected by breast cancer. Beautiful.
