C'est Genefique: Today is Lancôme's Third Annual Fundraiser for St. Jude

Posted by Sheila Shayon on October 19, 2012 03:17 PM

Today is Génifique Day (formerly Genes Day), a one-day national event benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and Lancôme will donate $7 from in-store or online sales of select Génifique products to St. Jude. Last year’s events and activities helped raise over $300,000 in support of lifesaving research and treatment.

"Our three-year partnership stands as a testament to Lancome's commitment to supporting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, an organization that shares many of our core values," says Serge Jureidini, president of Lancome USA, in a press release.

Lancome, the world's largest luxury beauty brand, sold at 2,000 counters across the U.S., applied ten years of research to Genifique, introduced in 2009, which “re-plumps, refines and re-illuminates the skin as if infused with life.” Fans of the product include "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks, Lancome ambassadress Julia Roberts, British songbird Lily Allen, supermodel Veronica Webb and star makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.

Making it easy for people to spread awareness of Genifique Day, the Lancome Facebook page is inviting users to create and share photo booth photo strips about “occasions when they feel their best.”Continue reading...

This Friday, October 22, Lancome is hosting a one-day fundraiser — which it's calling Genes Day — for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in New York.

The L'Oreal-owned brand will donate $7 from every $78 bottle of Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate sold on its website or in-store. It's also giving away free seven-day samples at retail partners' beauty counters to help first-timers try before they buy, and take the plunge for a good cause.

Lancome has pledged a minimum of $100,000 to St. Jude, the only pediatric cancer research center in America where children are never denied treatment because their family cannot pay or lacks insurance.Continue reading...
