L’Occitane Ultra-Soft Balm


£4 – and ALL the profits go to L’Occitane’s support of NGOs in troubled Burkina Faso, where the French natural beauty brand name long worked with women’s co-operatives on their shea butter project (17,000 women and counting, today). A rose-scented soft balm, this smooths and soothes lips, face, body (and can be skimmed through hair to ‘texturise’).

The money raised will go towards education, literacy and financial stability – and all because of this little tin of wonder... L’Occitane Ultra-Soft Balm/£4 at www.uk.loccitane.com
