skincare for teens

thank youWe are beyond excited to tell you guys about this new brand, not only because their products work amazingly, smell delicious, and are 100% natural, but because 100% of the product profit goes to helping people in poverty. Yes, you read that right, 100% of the profit from the products you buy from the Thankyou Personal Care line will help get water and sanitation services to people who need it. This includes building safe toilets, water wells, water filters, and hygiene training to empower people without access to these basic necessities. It’s the ultimate guilt-free, feel-good purchase, and not just because you’re helping people around the world, these products (our new fave hand cream and body scrub), are legit the bomb.

How it works: Thankyou is a social enterprise dedicated to ending global poverty, which is why they commit 100% of the profit from their products, including the most amazing skincare, baby care (and a revolutionary nappy) to helping people in need. Every product you buy has its own tracking code that you can type into the website, and it will zoom into the GPS coordinates of the well or the filter you’re funding. Here’s what our Botanical Geranium & Rosewood Hand Cream is funding:

We don’t just LOVE that you can literally see where your money is going, but also the fact that these products really are great – it’s not like we’re buying these products just to be charitable, we actually will continue to keep buying them.

Some of our fave products:

The Hand Cream: First of all, we love the fragrances – Geranium & Rosewood and Red Ginger & Blood Orange – but also the fact that these Hand Creams, $6.50, are made with cocoa and shea butter, organic aloe vera leaf, and some of our fave nourishing, good-for-your-skin essential oils.

THANKYOU

The Body Scrub: The Botanical Geranium & Rosewood Coffee Scrub, $15, has made it to the top of our body scrub list. Packed with antioxidant-rich coffee grounds that awaken, protect and smooth your skin, a blend of essential oils and cold-pressed macadamia oil soothe and nourish skin and leave a non-greasy hydrating layer on the skin. We also love the consistency of this, which is less messy than other scrubs and sticks to the body more!

The soap bars: Okay, we know no one uses soap bars anymore, us included, but when we came across these exfoliating Soap Bars, $5.50, we had to try them out – we are OBSESSED! We’ve never seen soap bars like this before: Fig Soap Bar with Exfoliating Poppy Seeds, Green Tea Soap Bar with Exfoliating Tea Leaves, Clay Soap Bar with Exfoliating Pumice, Coconut Soap Bar with Exfoliating Coconut Husk. These soap bars make exfoliating so easy and mess-free, and they’re also packed with moisturizing natural oils, while their different ingredients help to target different skin concerns. They’re also completely free of SLS, parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils and anything else you don’t want in your beauty products!

Thankyou
