Nothing gets my beauty-loving heart aflutter more than products that support a good cause. That's why I was so excited to find that TheBalm To The Rescue Lip Treatment ($14) is donating all net proceeds to Pug Rescue, an organization that rescues pugs from euthanasia and helps find loving homes for them. As if that wasn't enough to tug at your heartstrings, the product is also certified vegan, so it's friendly to the rest of our furry friends as well.
The lip balm itself is formulated with jojoba and shea butter, as well as rapidly dissolving exfoliating micro-crystals to soften your lips. It goes on minty fresh and lightly tingly, and it leaves a nice glossy sheen. It comes in a pretty silver compact that opens up with a mirror on the inside—a very useful feature that I think brands should incorporate into more of their products.
