One of the reasons I love social media and blogging, is being able to find out about products that are very unique. This is not a sponsored post by any means. I rarely shop in my hometown because I just find so much more online, suggested by blog friends or those I follow on Instagram or Twitter. You know if you see a person you admire say something is good, you have to try it! One of the folks I have been following on Instagram is GLOW for a Cause. They make lovely products like candles, body butter and perfume and give back 5% of the proceeds to a worthy cause. I really love when I can purchase something fabulous for myself and give back to others at the same time!
Here is some information on Glow for a Cause:
GLOW for a cause is a beauty company unlike any other. What started out as a quest to create the purest and highest quality body care products and soy candles has evolved into a glowing movement.
Founded by artist, teacher, and skincare productista, Johanna Querry Smith, GLOW for a cause is a passion project that makes both people and the world just a little more beautiful. GLOW for a cause products are made from the finest and purest ingredients available.
Every time you buy a GLOW for a cause product, you are not only pampering yourself, you are giving back 5% of the purchase price to select non-profit organizations. Now that’s beauty that GLOWS on the inside and out.
Glow for a Cause fabulous instagram !
I was so thrilled to purchase some items, the body butter is just so thick and wonderful! I have to be careful not to use it all at once! The scents are really very lovely as well, not overpowering, light and classy.
The rich body butter with nature’s best moisturizing oils of coconut, jojoba, sunflower and Vitamin E, helps to hydrate and protect the skin while leaving behind a sexy and lasting fragrance.
The soaking salts n CALM is really fabulous too and a very large size to last you quite a while. I am just so thankful I found GLOW for a cause on Instagram, and had to tell you about this wonderful company's products!

I really liked the fact I could choose the charity where my 5% should be sent and I like the idea of choosing a few different ones if you purchase more than 1 item. These products would make great Mother's Day gifts, very unique and I think Mom would love the charity idea as well.
