During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Clarisonic is proud to support our year around charitable partner, Look Good Feel Better.
The mission of our partnership is to help raise awareness about and help provide funding for Look Good Feel Better‘s free nationwide beauty workshops and other resources that help give women with breast and other cancers the power to feel beautiful again. As you may know, Clarisonic has been involved with Look Good Feel Better since 2010, and has donated more than $2 million to this wonderful cause. In fact, Clarisonic is the largest corporate financial donor in the 23-year history of the Look Good Feel Better program.
Look Good Feel Better is a collaboration of the American Cancer Society, The Personal Care Products Council Foundation, and the Professional Beauty Association|National Cosmetology Association. Each year, over 50,000 women participate in more than 15,000 individual workshops led by certified beauty professionals and learn how to deal with treatment related skin and hair loss issues.
This October, we again salute the millions of breast cancer survivors whose extraordinary spirit and determination have helped them to battle and overcome cancer. Look Good Feel Better stands ready to help these women regain their self- esteem and confidence as they face the challenge of a lifetime.
You can help by helping to spread the word. Please click on the short Look Good Feel Better video below and view it; then share it or tweet it to your friends and family and ask them to also share this valuable information. After all, almost everyone knows someone whose life has been touched by cancer.
With all of our help, Look Good Feel Better can make a woman’s cancer journey a little brighter and her heart a little lighter by providing understanding, support and encouragement from caring volunteers and other women who have walked in her shoes. We need your help to give women the power to feel like themselves again!
Thank you for supporting Look Good…Feel Better by watching our Glamour Reel Moments films. For every film view, Glamour Magazine will donate $1 to the cause. The three female directed films in the series were inspired by real stories by real women, proving the impact that women can have in the film industry. In honor of the empowering stories and our inspiring directors, Clarisonic made a $250,000 donation to Look Good…Feel Better to aid in continuing their work helping women with appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments.
At the premiere, we asked attendees to write a quote on our wall of empowerment. What empowering quote would you add to the wall? Comment below – all of your answers will be entered to win a prize inspired the Glamour Reel Moments film series! You can still watch the films here: Glamour Reel Moments
Join our charitable partner, Look Good…Feel Better for its first-ever live, virtual workshop! Look Good…Feel Better realizes that some cancer patients may not be able to attend the program’s two-hour workshops that are normally hosted in hospitals and cancer treatment centers. The virtual workshops will provide most of the benefits, but for those who are unable to attend in person, this new format will enable a patient to participate from the comfort of her own home, office or favorite coffee shop via a live streaming webcast!
The Look Good…Feel Better workshop will offer tips, advice and instruction on dealing with treatment related hair loss, changes in skin, complexion and nails during cancer treatment. The workshop will be facilitated by two top-notch volunteer beauty professionals–one of whom is a national Look Good… Feel Better trainer!
With a portion of proceeds from the sale of each designated PINK Clarisonic cleansing system going to Look Good…Feel Better, as well as fan participation in campaigns such as the Autographed Mia Auction and the Facebook Like Campaign, Clarisonic has raised more than $1 million for the program. Most recently, we received help from Clarisonic’s Empowered Woman of the Year, Mila Kunis, in presenting a check for $250,000 to Look Good…Feel Better! We want to thank all of our customers and fans who have helped make all of this possible.
We encourage you to learn more about the organization and its work by sitting in on the virtual workshop and making sure to inform anyone you know who might benefit from the Look Good…Feel Better program. We’d love to hear your comments after you’ve seen the webcast!
Virtual Workshop: Tuesday, April 26th, 2011, 12:00-2:00pm EDT. Webcast will be archived for future viewing.

They use their free time to learn more about Clarisonic and the Look Good…Feel Better partnership.
We are so honored to have hosted some fabulous talent this week, including Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Gael Garcia Bernal, Rachel Lefevre, Jon Lovitz, Barry Pepper and Spencer Garrett.

As many of you know Clarisonic has been hanging out in Hollywood the last several days as part of the AFI Fest 2010. We are celebrating our partnership with Look Good…Feel Better as a major sponsor of this year’s events. Clarisonic is participating in a variety of ways this year – last night we hosted a party and private screening of The Rabbit Hole starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart. Celebs who attend red carpet premieres are ushered into the Clarisonic “Green Room” to relax before the movie begins. All festival attendees are invited into the Clarisonic Beauty Suite at the famous Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Stop by for a treatment or get your makeup touched up before you hit the red carpet.
All the events are focused around the Limited Edition Clarisonic Hope Mia in support of Look Good…Feel Better. We are helping to spread the message of this fabulous organization and to raise money and awareness. As part of this support we are encouraging celebs to autograph Hope Mia’s – these units will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to Look Good…Feel Better. So on Saturday night we took to the red carpet for the premier of Barney’s Version starring Dustin Hoffman, Minnie Driver and Paul Giamatti.
Outside of Grauman’s Egyptian Theater in Hollywood the Clarisonic team received autographs from all of the Barney’s Version cast members including Dustin Hoffman’s son Jake and the film’s director Richard Lewis.
Thank you to all the celebs who have autographed Mia’s so far – we appreciate your support. Stay tuned for more action coming live from the red carpet all week on Facebook, Twitter and here on Sonic Chatter. Cheers!
Barney’s Version takes you on a ride through the life and memories of Barney Panofsky, a hard-drinking, cigar-smoking, foulmouthed 65-year old hockey fanatic and television producer, as he reflects on his life’s successes and (numerous) gaffes and failures as the final chapters of his own existence come sharply into focus.
