Giveaway: Earth Day with Lancome!

Lancome, Juicy Tubes, 100% Natural OriginI’m sure it hasn’t escaped your attention that Earth Day (April 22) is this week. But it is ALSO the 10th anniversary of Juicy Tubes. And Lancome is doing several things to celebrate both.

First of all, they’ve launched (limited edition) Juicy Tubes 100% Natural Origin. The formula includes Hungarian honey, royal jelly extract, beeswax, and shea butter (and annatto and carmine for color). They’re flavored with vanilla, apricot, and raspberry. They’re $18 and come in four shades: Pink Precious, Rose Pretty, Blushing Beauty, and Sheerfully Sweet.

Secondly, Lancome spokesmodel Elettra Wiedemann happens to be associated with a charity called JustOneFrickinDay (justonefrickinday.com). The idea is that you visit the website, calculate what one day’s salary is for you, then donate that amount.  The charity takes on only one or two projects at a time, trying to maximize impact for those operations. Their current project involves working with the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF), to build the first solar powered hospital in Burundi. Lancome has already made a donation to JustOneFrickinDay.

Third! Lancome persuaded House of Diehl, Rag & Bone, Giambattista Valli, Rogan, Chris Benz, and Phillip Lim to each design a shirt for JustOneFrickinDay. If you’re lucky enough to live in NYC, and you go buy a 100% Natural Origin Juicy Tube at the boutique on the Upper West Side, April 22 – 25, they’ll give you one of these limited edition, 100% organic cotton shirts for free.  (If you order online on those dates, you can still get free shipping and two deluxe samples, but not a shirt.)

Not in NYC? Not to worry. I have THREE Juicy Tubes 100% Natural Origin (in Blushing Beauty, Rose Pretty, and Pink Precious) and TWO of the shirts (Rogan in size medium; Giambattista Valli in size large) to give away.

Want to win? Leave a comment below and tell me a green tip (beauty tip or other).  Three winners will be selected at random; prizes will be assigned at random; one entry per person; contest open to readers anywhere in the world; contest ends this Sunday at midnight.  Two people will win gloss + shirt, the third will win just a gloss (sorry!).  Good luck!

These prizes were provided by Lancome.

  • Sharon says:

    Always unplug your computers and chargers when you arent using them!

    Swap out old lightbulbs for CFLs, and share/give to friends makeup that turns out not to work, rather than trashing it.

  • Sun says:

    You can reuse the plastic bags from the grocery store as trash bags for smaller trash cans.

    i cut the bottom of my fiji water bottles off and fill them up with beads so that they hold my beauty brushes or writing tools :)

    Always switch out the light if you leave a room, even it is just for 5 Minutes and i never use the Standby-Option of a product.

  • HautePJ says:

    I re-use makeup removing wipes containers to house cotton balls, Q-Tips, safety pins, etc.

  • Eva says:

    Save paper – print on both sides and squeeze whatever you’re printing in less pages.

    Reuse bags and use old plastic ones for trash bins.

  • Jess says:

    I get all my bills sent to me online. No more paper bills!

  • Kathi says:

    take the bike or walk more often

  • Tara M says:

    Back to MAC! fantastic idea to return used packaging to MAC for them to recycle. In return you are given a free lipstick. Green idea!

  • Lotte says:

    Switch of every standby button when you don’t use them !

  • Print things either double sided, two to a page, or both! I’m a uni student so I have a tonne of things to print out, and now I save a ridiculous amount of paper :3

  • Anastasia says:

    Recycling !!! Buy a reusable aluminum water bottle.

  • aleta says:

    switch to French press coffee and loose tea, it’ll save a ton of bleached filter paper plus it tastes nicer.

  • cavano says:

    Always turn off water when you are soap-ing in the shower or in the middle of brushing your teeth.

  • Abbi says:

    Back 2 Mac incorporates my love for makeup (getting the free lippy woo hoo) as well as the feel good factor of recycling those empty plastics!

  • Kate M. says:

    Origins recycling program is great because they accept all beauty products from all brands!!

    Shorter showers and B2Ms =)

    Thanks Karla!

  • GEN says:

    If its cold and windy winter night, light some candles instead of turning up the thermostat.

  • Petra says:

    Hm, I do a lot, but not nearly enough. I try to recycle most stuff (batterie,light bulbs too when possibble),Give away clothes instead of selling or using them as fabric or a a cleaning cloth, deny receiving bags when I don’t find them necessary (I usually carry a spare plastic one in my bag),reuse the bags I do receive,turn off lights and chargers I’m not using, try to walk and/or use public transportation,turn off the tap while washing teeth etc. These are really simple ways, at least for me. :)

  • Petra says:

    *I meant instead of throwing away clothes – I either sell them or give them away, when in good condition.

  • happybadfish says:

    I walk to work and my husband and I shower together.

  • michelle says:

    Ditch the water bottles — fill up an aluminum re-usable water bottle

  • Miss QQ says:

    When I take away food or drinks, I bring my own bottle or container so I don’t have to use the disposable containers.

  • Isabella says:

    I always carry reusable canvas bag in my handbag so I never have to take a plastic bag in the store, and when it is absolutely necessary (if I have to much stuff etc.) I save it and reuse it as a garbage bag.

  • dawn says:

    I use a stainless steel water bottle & travel mug–saves money and waste!

  • Tina says:

    I use reusable bags everywhere I go!

  • Chrissie says:

    My Green Tip: turn the faucet off while you’re brushing your teeth. You’d be surprised at how much water is wasted in that minute.

  • Chiara says:

    Have a shower with your boyfriend ;-)

  • pretty says:

    use water,or any other thing as least as i could use.

  • Julie says:

    I try to follow the three “R’s” – Reduce, Recycle, Reuse as best as I can.

  • Lisa says:

    My green tip is to ride your bike or take public transport to work! I try to drive as little as possible, and it’s good for me too since I get more exercise that way :)

  • jen says:

    my tip? instead of throwing away polish, send your toxic pretties to Zoya’s polish exchange. I got a bunch of Zoyas for the first time from last time they did this and now they are doing it again! So excited. :D

  • Monica says:

    I unplug all powercords that are not in use, i recycle and try to walk as much as possible or take public transit

  • Re-use the shopping bags instead of taking new in supermarket all the time!

  • Aida says:

    Walk to go to the University!!

  • Pamela says:

    I always use an aluminum water bottle instead of plastic, and a travel mug instead of paper for my coffee. I also always make checkout people (what are they called, technically?) use my green bags, even though most of them don’t want to.

  • Erin says:

    Put a brick or another weighted item in your toilet tank to use less water!

  • Instead of using grocery plastic bags I made myself some cotton bags which I don’t have to throw out and I can wash them which means I’ll have them for a long time. They’re in pretty colors and I really love them! :)

  • Blue says:

    Use public transportation instead of your own car:it helps with the congested traffic issue and the environment!

  • Diana says:

    to take public transport instead of driving, and I also use a trolley to go to the supermarket

  • Donna says:

    Switch to CFL bulbs and set your computer to ‘sleep’ after 15 to 20 minutes of inactivity!

  • Sass says:

    Green garden tip!
    Use soda bottle halfs as weather protectors for your young garden plants. It protects it from too much water, keep plants warm and protects them from pests.

  • Tina says:

    Use little reusable tupperware containers instead of plastic sandwich or zip bags for your snacks, lunch, storage, etc. You’d be surprised how much plastic you save from being thrown out. My boyfriend and I moved in together last Sept, bought 2 boxes of zip bags (gallon and regular size) and we haven’t had to buy new boxes since we moved in. Saves you money too!

  • Jenny says:

    keep old boxes to help seperate your beauty products in their storage bins! =)

  • Walking to nearby places (grocery store, drugstore, even to the office!) instead of going by car! You exercise AND help the Earth! =D

  • Joan says:

    Eat a vegetarian meal! it’s so much better for the planet!

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations says that the livestock sector is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions globally, and that it affects water quality and biodiversity.

  • Manuela says:

    Use vegetable oil to remove make up.
