It’s Defember!

Y’all know I have a thing for men with beards, right? I mean, I’m pretty sure I’ve covered this fact somewhere way back in the archives. If not, take a look at what stares back at me on my inspiration board at my desk on a daily basis.

So, yeah. Facial hair is a fine thing in my book.

That is, ON MEN.

While I certainly appreciate a man’s beard or moustache – especially when it’s for a good cause like Movember – having a fuzzy upper lip on a lady friend isn’t so flattering. Well, what if you could defuzz for a good cause? It’s called Defember.

Here’s the skinny. For every woman who pledges to defuzz her upper lip in Defember on Olay’s Facebook page, the brand will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (up to $50,000!!!). The non-profit organization provides free mammograms to women in need to help promote early breast cancer detection. All you need to do is visit Olay’s Facebook page, click on the yellow button, and Olay will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

You don’t have a lady stache, you say? (So far so good over here in regards to no upper lip hair, THANK YOU LORD…) You don’t need to truly “defuzz” to help this cause. Visiting Olay’s Facebook page and clicking once will donate $1 to the NBCF. Easy peasy.

(Now, if you do need a little assistance in the upper lip territory, might I suggest trying the new Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo? It’s a unique two-step depilatory system for fine to medium facial hair with a pre-treatment to protect skin. That means no fuss, no irritation and best of all, no fuzz!)

Lastly, check out the sweet MISStache generator you can play around with on Olay’s Facebook page. I may or may not have spent a fair amount of time trying on new looks.

(Look at the first one! I could be an employee at the Genius Bar!)

Help to me spread the word about defuzzing for a great cause, ladies! Fuzzy upper lips (and healthy ta-tas!) from all over the world will thank you.

This post was sponsored by Olay. (Although the ridiculous amount of time spent on the moustache generator thingy was all me.)

    I definitely share your love of facial hair (on men). I get very upset when my husband threatens to shave his. One day, while looking for pictures of my celebrity crush (Josh Halloway), I discovered beardporn.com. It hasn’t been updated in a while, but it’s still a fun site to peruse. Just thought I’d share in case you haven’t seen it yet. Enjoy!

    Foxy, foxy. For the record, you could totally rock a mustache.

    Also, so totally with you on Team Beard. And Team ‘Stache. (Shocking, I know.)

    What a great cause! Or I guess I should say couple of causes. So this Olay Hair Removal doesn’t cause irritation? Because I have super sensitive skin and have been tempted to try laser hair removal because everything else gives me bumps. But maybe I’ll try this…thanks!
