Glow for a Cause
This awesome company has set its sights on providing top-quality beauty products that not only curated from the purest ingredients available, but 5% is given back to GLOW for a cause's partner non-profit organizations. I've fallen in love with their Body Butters which come in a wide variety of scents, sizes, and sets.
The one pictured above also comes in a 7.5 oz. size for $26 as well. It happens to smell wonderful and I love that it doesn't leave behind a greasy feel. My skin just feels ultra soft and smooth, in addition to smelling great! ;) A little goes quite a long way, which means you won't have to use tons of product and I've found this to be highly effective on super rough areas like my elbows, knees, feet, & heels.
