And once again, beauty gives back...

On Monday we had just a fantastic day. For 15 years, Beauty Bible has been involved with the Centrepoint charity, offering two-stage self-esteem-building workshops - and at this time of year, putting together amazing goodie bags for the charity's young homeless, thanks to the generosity of the industry we work in. There's a lot of box humping and bag stuffing, but the satisfaction from doing something hands-on is enormous.

This year, our trusty packers put together 250 gifts like the one you see above - which will be delivered on Christmas morning to young women in Centrepoint's hostels who otherwise may not get anything at all. (This year, we were also able to offer 250 gifts for young men - and send another 250+ to hostels in the north...)

We'd like to thank the many, many companies who this year contributed to the bags - including L'OccitaneKenneth Green AssociatesBulldog, Dr. Organic, Elemis, Mandara Spa, Revlon, Bare Essentials, NARS, Soap & Glory, John Frieda, Balance Me, Lee Stafford, Aromatherapy Associates, Argan 5, Models Own, Dirty Works, Manuka Doctor and more.

This is an incredibly generous industry and we're privileged to be able to tap into it in such a worthwhile way.

Thanks, guys. (You can see the team in the elf picture below!)
