“I am thrilled to be working with GLOSSYBOX to spread the message of Give & Makeup, especially at such an important time of year. Their support has been incredible and I know this collaboration will bring much-needed attention and products to the women sheltering at domestic violence refuges. Thank you GLOSSYBOX, and thank YOU, for taking the time to read about our cause.” 

Give and Makeup is a non-profit initiative whose sole purpose is to put everyday essentials into the hands of women who need them the most. GLOSSYBOX is supporting Give and Makeup by sending boxes of beauty, bath and body products to Refuge, Women's Aid and the Warrior Women Project and are encouraging our subscribers to do the same. GLOSSYBOX and Give and Makeup can help you help them by sending either new or nearly new (tried once) products, with the exception of lip gloss and mascara to women who need them most.

Pioneered and launched by beauty expert and blogger, Caroline Hirons, in 2010, Give and Makeup was set up to support women who have fled domestic violence arriving at shelters with hope for their future but not much else.

Caroline was initially going to write a blog post about essentials...that led to an idea about what your absolute necessities would be...that led to an idea about 'what if you had NOTHING'...She thought of the amount of product she had sitting in her cupboard and felt ashamed. Caroline scrapped the blog post and Give and Makeup started that evening.

If you feel you can spare any beauty products or toiletries inclusive of toothbrushes, toothpaste, tampons, sanitary towels, shower gel, deodorant, body lotion and makeup, please pop them into your GLOSSYBOX and send it to:

These women need our support to rebuild their lives. For additional information and to find out more from Caroline please visit:
