Check out our charity friends who can provide you with advice, products and accessories:

Look Good Feel Better

Independent national cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better provides a unique service to women, men and young adults undergoing treatment for any type of cancer right across the UK. The workshops are led by trained volunteers including skincare and make-up artists and local groomers/barbers for men’s groups. The sessions provide advice on issues relating to both make-up and skincare, which often include colour correction, dry skin and loss of eyebrows and eyelashes and shaving and infection control for men. These can be common concerns when going through treatment. The advice given is practical and demonstrated using products donated by the charity’s corporate partners and teaches the skills and tips to counteract these concerns.
