Celebrate National Just Because Day - August 27th!

August 27th is National Just Because Day, and what better way to celebrate this day than gifting your beauty obsessed friends, just because!

Have your friend feel like a pop star with Katy Perry’s Mad Love fragrance. This fruity scent opens with the succulence of Lady Apple Sorbet and Mara Strawberry blended to perfection with freshness of delicious Pink Grapefruit. Middle notes of Peony Petals, smooth Sun-Kissed Jasmine, and the hypnotic pull of the Bleeding Heart flower captivate the senses.



A friend is always in need of a delicious smelling body butter. Gift them with Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Body Butter. This super soft, all-natural body butter absorbs instantly for deeply hydrated, luxuriously soft skin. 100 percent pure shea and cocoa butters blend with powerful antioxidants and essential oils for long-lasting hydration. Five sweet-smelling scents and a non-greasy formula create the ultimate indulgence.



Give a few KORRES Lip Butters to the friend who is obsessed with lip balm. This rich butter leaves lips deeply moisturized, supple, and kissably soft. Korres Lip Butters are formulated with natural oils and extracts to soothe and condition lips. Shea butter and rice wax provide lasting hydration and softness. This shiny, juicy pop of color comes in an array of "flavors" and is ideal for dry lips.
