The Beauty Bank only accepts full size, new and unopened toiletries and makeup (perfume may be lightly used)
We love brand new or excellent condition handbags and totes, scarves and jewellery or anything else you feel will bring a smile to a woman’s face!
The Beauty Bank accepts gift items such as candles, small boxed toiletries and other items that you may like to receive as a gift yourself.
The idea of The Beauty Bank came when I received an anonymous gift of ‘fancy’ body wash in 2012.
I had just left my violent husband with nothing but my ten month old daughter, very few possessions and I was six months pregnant.
I was scared, broke and didn’t know where I was going to live or how I was going to cope.
It may sound silly but that body wash made me feel appreciated and luxurious and gave me strength when I felt like giving up.
