NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With Lancome's radiance boosting Genifique collection, you can reveal a more youthful you every day and contribute to life-saving children's research and treatment. On Friday, October 25th, Lancome invites you to support national Genifique Day. On this day, for every bottle of Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate or Genifique Eye Light-Pearl sold at participating Lancome counters nationwide, Lancome will donate $7 directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® to reflect Genifique's seven-day skin perfecting promise. It's that simple.
Last year, in just one day, more than $200,000 was raised for St. Jude. Every purchase makes a difference. For example, 14 bottles pay for platelet count tests for two patients. Five bottles can buy a family one day of meals. And just three bottles provide rehabilitation weights to help improve patients' quality of life. Your individual contribution can help in so many ways.
Genifique exemplifies Lancome's commitment to helping customers feel their best. Inspired by cutting edge science, Genifique's award-winning formula infuses skin with new life and visibly improves tone, texture and luminosity in just seven days.
According to Celebrity Makeup Artist Mickey Williams, who will be hosting an event at the Macy's Herald Square Lancome counter in support of Genifique Day, "The Genifique line transforms any skin type—smoothing, brightening, and clarifying—so makeup can glide on effortlessly." Williams continues, "Like makeup, these products are a genuine investment in personal well-being, allowing women to feel amazing each day." Starting at noon today, come in to Macy's for a complimentary, professional makeup application session and personal product recommendation consultation from Williams herself.
"St. Jude is grateful for the support of partners like Lancome that have embraced our lifesaving mission to find cures and save children battling cancer and other deadly diseases," said Richard Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "Thanks to Lancome and its loyal customers, St. Jude will continue to provide world-class treatment and share the breakthroughs we make so doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children."
