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 ( 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.

    When you brush your teeth, don’t leave the water running. Just turn it on when you need it :)

  • Natalie Evans says:

    Make sure to turn off your hair straighteners or curling irons after using them instead of letting them go off by themselves…..that uses SOOO much energy!!! Be wise!

  • Audrey H. says:

    I look for things that have reusable containers or packaging. i.e. paper or cards that can be made in postcards or run through my die cutter to create paper arts. Gotta be creative :)

  • Diana Lee says:

    Hey Karla! what do you do with leftover pills? You know them annoying tylenol that is out of date, or that cough syrup that you stuck in the fridge? Do you just throw them in the trash bagg???
    People discard those leftover pills in the trash and pour syrup down the sink and it ALL goes back on to the land. The ingredients in pills gets carried down to the pipe-pass the sewage and into the river- andd absorbed on the land. Some of it dissipate, but some gets left in the stream of water, which can be really dangerous to our health. Soo its really recommended that you take those leftover pills to the pharmacy counters and they’ll discard them safely for you!

    We recycle everything we can at home. We are planting a four-in-one apple tree this weekend. Everyone in the family has a reusable water bottle. We take our own cloth grocery bags to the store. We use the Hazardous Waste Disposal drive in our area, so no batteries from our house end up in a landfill. We also favor rechargeable batteries: kids go through a lot of AA batteries.

  • Deyna says:

    Don’t use plastic water bottles! Or if you must, recycle the bottles.

    Invest in a warm jumper and slippers so you don’t need to turn the heating up at home! Also, don’t bother with tumble drying, it wastes so much energy and Mother Nature offers a similar drying service for free!

  • Lisa says:

    Back to MAC program is a great green thing!

    But more generally…recycle everything you can–all sorts of cardboard, even plastic grocery/drugstore bags are recyclable. Or use a cloth/canvas bag (put them in your purse or car after you unload so you’ll be sure to have them!)

  • Abbi says:

    re use plastic supermarket bags as bin bags

  • don’t stay under the shower too long (sorry girls) usually i spend like 3 minutes under the shower get wet,lather, rinse and towel dry. Only when i wash my hair it takes about 6 but thet’s every 5 days so that’s not so bad.

    Replace your shower heads with an Eco shower head. You can get them at Target or Walmart for around $20. You’ll save more than that over the year on your water bill. They work really well too!

  • June says:

    Use all-natural body scrubs since the microbeads that most scrubs use just end up down the drain and suffocating the respiratory systems of fish and aquatic mammals in the ocean. You can make your own environmentally safe scrub by mixing sugar with honey and olive oil too.

  • Daniela Alston says:

    turn the water off when soaping, shaving or shampooing while taking a shower or brushing your teeth!

  • roslynd says:


    have everything attached to a power saver cord thing, and turn it off after every use. so much of our PG&E bills are from wasted power, electronics use power just being plugged in, not even being on

    Do not use the iron everyday. Accumulate the clothes that need to be ironed and do so on a weekly/fortnightly basis.

    Always cut your skincare product packaging when you think you have run out. Usually there is still product inside that you can scoop out and store in a container that will last you up to another week’s of use.
    You can do the same thing with tooth paste when you can’t squeeze it out from the tube anymore

  • Andrea Sasaki says:

    Run your appliances during off peak hours.
