There’s a lot happening in the world of beauty. Rather than try to keep up with it all, let us help. Here is what you need to know today.
1. A multimillion-dollar counterfeit beauty ring was busted in New York last week, which passed their products as genuine all over the East Coast. According to CNN.com, “the counterfeits included everyday health and beauty items such as ChapStick, Johnson’s Baby Oil, Vaseline and Always sanitary pads.” The products were found as far north as Pennsylvania and as far south as Florida. If you’re concerned about products you’ve purchased, check your labels. Authorities recommend the following: “Look for signs such as strange pictures on the package or strange colors or typeface. Some sophisticated knockoffs may be hard to detect, but the price may be atypically low. Counterfeits will not have the same quality or consistency of real products. Shop at established and trusted stores, which are likely to be connected to legitimate supply chains.” Read the full story at CNN.com.
2. Giorgio Armani Fragrances is partnering with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF for the fifth year in a row. The fragrance house is working to raise money for the UNICEF Tap Project to generate “awareness and funds to provide children with access to clean water.” For every bottle of Acqua di Giò and Acqua Di Gioia sold in the U.S. during the month of March, Giorgio Armani Fragrances will donate $5 to the fund.
