A word about if you're thinking about a new lip balm, you should take a look at the L'Occitane Solidarity Balm.
The L'Occitane Solidarity Balm is available now and partners with the UN Women: 100% of the profits will finance NGOs projects to promote women's leadership in the world, together with the L'Occitane foundation.
Why a solidarity Shea Butter balm?
Shea Butter is often called 'the gold of women'. Ever since the 1980s L'Occitane has a partnership with women in Burkina Faso. L'Occitane supports economic emancipation and backs up projects that promote female entrepreneurship and literacy. The L'Occitane Shea Butter is produced in a program with over 17000 women in Burkina Faso.
Why is this balm worth it besides supporting other women?
It's a balm that's good for everything: use it as a lip balm, use it on the tips of your hair, use it on dry elbows,... You name it.
Duo Mains-Lèvres Karité
From one lip balm to another - L'Occitane released 3 cute hand cream/lip balm sets: one with shea butter, one with cherry scent and one with a scent of roses.
Soledad created the beautiful packaging that is very 'L'Occitane' and so very playful. What else is there to say about this pretty set? I've discussed the L'Occitane hand creams numerous times here, they're good. They're really, really good - moisturizing, not sticky, perfect for dry skin.

Initiatives like the solidarity balm make me happy. They make you reflect about the world outside our own bubble, and that's something we all need sometimes.
