These Style & Beauty Picks Support Meaningful Causes

#ClozetteCovets

This month, we want to put the spotlight on some style, beauty, and lifestyle products that support meaningful causes. From special collaborations for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month to the use of clothing that uses sustainable materials, we’re showing our support for advocacies that are near and dear to our hearts.


Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair with Pink Ribbon Sleeve

April, Head of Community

“I've been a fan of the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum since I started using it a couple of years ago. Estée Lauder has a tradition of releasing a limited edition ANR collectible each year in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and that's something I definitely look forward to. Not only do I get to restock on a skincare favourite, but I also get to do it for a good cause!

This year's limited-edition Pink Ribbon sleeve is eye-catching and quite practical, especially considering my products tend to slip from my crowded bathroom shelves occasionally; it will probably cushion any falls quite comfortably and protect the bottle from damage.”

Haus Laboratories Love For Sale Shadow Palette

“If there’s one makeup item I cannot live without, it’s eyeshadow. Now that wearing masks is part of our get-ready routine, our eyes are all the more in focus and I’ve been dressing them up much more. I’ll say yes to a vegan and cruelty-free multi-purpose palette like this anytime because it’s essentially highlighter, eyeshadow and eyeliner in one! With this palette, Lady Gaga also hopes to inspire everyone out there to live colourfully. Every USD1 from every palette sold on hauslabs.com will be donated to Exploring the Arts in support of arts education.”

Angela Roi Cher Micro (Signet) in Light Blue

Therese, Senior Features Writer

USD195

“I've always wanted to own an Angela Roi bag. I like how each design looks like (and I imagine also feels like) real animal leather but they’re actually made with vegan leather that’s crafted in South Korea. Out of all the brand’s selections, I have my eyes on Cher Micro in Light Blue. This cute little tote bag is eye-catching but not showy, just the way I like it. The baby powder blue hue also lends it an air of elegance which is what I want from my handbags.”

Source Collections TENCEL™ V Neck Tee

Alyana, Features Writer

~USD35.72

“The WFH setup highlighted the importance of having comfortable, breathable ‘work’ clothes for me. Even basic pieces such as t-shirts and shorts can do wonders to elevate my mood and productivity. So, I’ve been eying the Source Collections TENCEL™ V Neck Tee to upgrade my wardrobe. It’s made with sustainable TENCEL™ fabric that’s oh-so-soft to the touch.

In addition to its use of sustainable materials, the brand also practises transparency as it clearly outlines the cost of production. It also discloses the factories it partners with, which certifications these factories have and its employees’ working conditions. Knowing that gives me confidence that I’m supporting an ethical fashion brand and more than justifies the price for a basic tee, in my opinion.”

“When we think of scented candles for our home, we think of Jo Malone — because who doesn't love their scent accompanied by a luxe glass jar that can guarantee to elevate any home? With its new range of charity candles that shine a light on mental health problems, it’s donating 75% of proceeds to support individuals and families affected by mental health issues. Jo Malone with a good cause? Definitely sign me up!”
