Stila Cosmetics is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October!  Stila is asking for clients to help support by purchasing handpicked items by Sarah Lucero.   Sarah is Stila’s Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry and in 2010, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  The bonus is these items are 40% off with code BCA.

All proceeds from these items will be donated to The Foundation for Living Beauty, which helped Sarah when she was battling.  “That’s why this year, we’ve teamed up with The Foundation for Living Beauty to remind all women that it’s not about what you’ve lost, it’s about enhancing and loving what you have.  Makeup isn’t just about outward appearance, it’s about helping you feel beautiful!”

Kiehl’s will be the first beauty company in over 30 years to appear in the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day.

The theme of Kiehl’s float is “Inspiring a Beautiful World” and will showcase their original apothecary in New York’s East Village and represent their three philanthropic endeavors: HIV/AIDS Awareness, The Environment and Children’s Causes.

Kiehl’s fits right in with the Rose Parade as Kiehl’s uses natural ingredients powered by by science in their skincare products, and quite a few of those ingredients will be represented in their float; sunflowers, roses, pear blossoms, pears and peonies.

Another first will be that Kiehl’s is the first company to have motorcycles ride along side of the float and with that two very special guests.  In the vintage sidecar motorcycle, Timothy Brown, the Berlin Patient and an advocate for the rights of those living with HIV and AIDS around the world.  The second guest is seventeen year old Evan Dumas, of Culver City Unified School District who represents Kiehl’s commitment to improving the environment through Recycle Across America.

Riding on the float will be  Kiehl’s President, Chris Salgardo, Kiehl’s Senior Vice President of Global Communications, Rob Imig, and eight of Kiehl’s West Coast Kiehl’s Customer Representatives.

Be on the watch for the float and follow the team along on  social media at #KiehlsxRoseParade!
