I think we'll make this a new series on Royally Pink... I love talking about beauty, and there is always a new product or brand or store I want to talk about. I need to get more organized in how I discuss things on here so I think "Beauty to Know" is a perfect fit.
For now, we'll start off with a relatively new shop to the beauty scene, one that has great products and a really great message behind it: BeautyKind.
Being the sorority girl I am, I love anything that involves philanthropy. When you combine that with my love of beauty products, you pretty much have a match made in heaven.
BeautyKind has a pretty good variety of beauty products, all high end. Whenever you make a purchase on BeautyKind, 5% of your purchase is donated to the charity or cause of your choice. There are over 10,000 causes to choose from; everything from JDRC to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
If for some reason you don't see your cause listed on the website, you can contact BeautyKind and let them know that you'd like to see and they'll do their best to get it up there.
The cause I chose is the American Cancer Society -- as a college, we supported Relay for Life, and cancer is a cause close to my heart, unfortunately, like so many others of us out there.
So here's the fun stuff: when trying to find some things to buy, I knew I didn't need any makeup. When I saw that GlamGlow was featured, I knew I'd buy that. I received a $50 off $75 purchase and to get a GlamGlow mask for under $30 was way too good to pass up.
I'll be doing a separate review of the GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment next week but so far so good! I also bought a Butter London Nail Polish in All Hail the Queen. You can expect a Manicure Monday feature soon!
The package came wrapped up beautifully and safely -- they even threw in a few skincare samples! I think BeautyKind is a fabulous retailer. The selection on the website is a little small but to combine a love of charity and beauty, well, it doesn't get much better than that.
Lucky for all you fabulous readers, when you sign up using my link you get $25 off your first BeautyKind purchase. I also get $25 in BeautyKind credit (just wanted to disclose that; if you don't feel comfortable using the link, no worries!)

Has anyone ever used BeautyKind? What cause would you support?
