Introducing… (drumroll)… the newest addition to my makeup kit: Eve Echo Hand Sanitizer in Lavender Vanilla!
Cause when you touch peoples faces for a living, you’d better have clean hands.
I truly love love LOVE it!
Sent to me by my hottielicious homeboy – one of the few (and now former) Fun Fearless Males on the Cosmopolitan Staff, Jason Cavallo - this new line of liquid hand soaps ($14) and spray hand sanitizers ($8) comes in deeeee-licious scents like Sweet Mango, Grapefruit Honeydew, Pomegranate Peppermint and (my fave!) Coconut Butter.
The packaging is also quite sleek and nice on the eyes.
And it gets even better …
Through a special partnership with FINCA (The Foundation for International Community Assistance), 100% (yes, ALL) of the profits of Eve Echo products are made into low-interest loans granted to women around the world to help them create and build businesses. This microfinance model has proven a sustainable path out of poverty and often provides children and families with access to healthcare and education they would not have otherwise received, not to mention narrows gender inequalities throughout the world. Probably why Natalie Portman has signed on as an Eve Echo spokeswoman.
A-HEM!!! Who says beauty’s only skin deep??!
As they say at Eve Echo, “clean hands really can make a difference.”
