During the month of October, Aveda will donate $4 from the sale of each Pink Ribbon Hand Relief to support cruelty-free research through The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This will be the third time that I’ve featured the Aveda Hand Relief for BCA month. And the reason that I’ve featured it three years in a row now as one of my favorite Pink Ribbon products, is simply because it’s a truly great product and it’s loved by both men and women. As I previously wrote on My Skin Affair: I’m always a huge fan of the way Aveda products smell, and this rich hand crème is now on my list of fabulously scented Aveda products. It’s a subtle, fresh, and spa-like scent. My hands feel wonderful after I use Aveda’s Hand Relief. Silky smooth! It’s a great product and a great way to support BCA month. Get one for yourself and one for a friend. Your hands will absolutely love it!
Since 2004, Aveda has contributed over $1.5 million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Hooray, Aveda! Donations made by Aveda or that you make through Aveda support cruelty-free research.
On a personal note: Since I launched My Skin Affair, in May of 2009, I’ve been working with Evan Miller at Aveda. Evan is now moving on from Aveda to do awesome work for another company. I plan to continue working with Evan, wherever he is, but I will miss working with him at Aveda. Evan has been one of the most supportive people that I’ve worked with from day one of My Skin Affair, and that’s including every rep for every skin care and makeup line that I know. Evan stands high above the rest. I never play “favorites”, but I do have some favorite people in every part of my life and in this part of my life, Evan rises to the top. Not only has Evan been incredibly supportive of my site and the actresses that I’ve interviewed, but he is such an enthusiastic person to work with. I’ve been a fan of Aveda products for many years but Evan made me a fan of Aveda, as a company. Evan has always been just as enthusiastic about Aveda’s products as he has been of the work that Aveda does beyond the products…and his enthusiasm is contagious. From our first chat, Evan sounded like a friend. He’s the person that you look forward to working with and the person you would be foolish not to hire. A big thanks to Evan from every celebrity that he’s gifted Aveda products to through My Skin Affair.
Evan: Thank you for being just as supportive of My Skin Affair from day one as you are today. I am most appreciative! You’ve been such a genuine pleasure to work with for the past few years. As I continue working with Aveda, you will be greatly missed. But, I’m sure we’ll be working together from your new home. You’ve been the absolute best. Evan Miller, thank you so much! – Joanna Canton
