Elave Campaign with the Irish Cancer Society

Elave is one of my favourite Irish brands that I don't mention often enough and they have started their third campaign in conjunction with the Irish Cancer Society. From May 1st until the end of June €1 from every Elave product with the red sticker (as seen above) will be donated to their Survivorship programme. The programme was set up for people who have recently been diagnosed with Cancer so that they have a chance to meet up with a volunteer who has beaten cancer themselves to talk to them about their experience and offer support to them.

Often treatments for cancer can be severe and in some cases can cause the skin to become more irritated and react harshly to some washing products. Elave products are free from harsh chemicals and are gentle enough for all skin types that it was a no brainer for Elave to work with The Irish Cancer Society on this campaign.

I have used Elave products for well over a year now. I love their Intense moisture Surge, their newly formulated shampoo which is sulphate free and lathers up really well. I wasn't fond of the old formulation because it didn't lather up but the new shampoo and I are inseparable! I also like to use their conditioner and don't leave the house without applying their Daily Skin Defence with SPF 45.

Elave recently got in touch with me to spread the word about their campaign. They have also been very kind enough to sponsor a giveaway for my readers. As recommended by Grazia and myself the Daily skin defence moisturiser SPF45 is perfect for protecting and repairing environmental skin damage. We are finally seeing the sun in Ireland this summer so make sure you are protecting your skin before you head out. Elave have given me six of these to give away, to enter please follow the widget below. I would love you help with spreading the word about this campaign and would appreciate you using the Twitter, Facebook or Google+ buttons below this post to share with your family and friends.

  11. I tweeted! I'm actually a bit ashamed to say I'd never heard of this brand before. I will definitely, definitely be buying some of their products, such a worthwhile cause, there isn't a person I know who hasn't been touched either directly or indirectly by cancer. The 45SPF is something I'll really follow through on too, so important. Thanks for this post Sarah x
