Cult favorite cure-all Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil is getting the model treatment this month: Catwalk stunners Angela Lindvall and Petra Nemcova, along with Josie herself, have decked the bottles in limited-edition designs that reflect the charity closest to their hearts. Ten percent of the price of each bottle sold will be donated to their respective causes— Healthy Child Healthy World for Angela, Petra’s own Happy Hearts Fund and Women for Women International for Josie. Virtually scent-free, the nongreasy, fast-absorbing argan oil inside is a superb nourisher for face, body and hair. Try rubbing it into cuticles and elbows, onto heels before slipping on socks, adding a few droppers to your bath for a moisture boost, and smoothing over fried strands for an instant hydrating fix.

Kiss for a Cause

If you want your voice to be heard, try speaking from a perfect pout! That’s the idea behind MAC’s “From Our Lips” campaign with Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper.

The movement addresses the challenges women face as the fastest growing group impacted by HIV/AIDS globally. Founded in 1994, the VIVA GLAM program supports men, women and children who are affected by HIV/AIDS.

As a huge Lady Gaga fan, I snagged a tube of her cool pink lipglass ($14.50). Everyone loves the feminine color and it makes for a great conversation starter. At FITNESS, we’re always ready to pucker up for a good cause!

The lipglasses will be available at MAC counters nationwide and online September 2nd through February 2011.
