Açai: The Comic Book Hero; The Body Shop Returns To Its Roots; And More…


To really hammer home the fact that the namesake Amazonian berry in its new Açai Damage-Repairing Skincare line is considered a “super-powered” antioxidant, Kiehl’s has ordered up a brand site where you can create and share your own Pop Art-style comic strip. Finally, a chance to don that cape and serve up some justice, skincare-style. [Ad Week]

To prove that it is still committed to ethical business practices and a philanthropic spirit, the Body Shop has partnered with ECPAT International, which is devoted to ending child prostitution, child pornography, and the trafficking of children for sexual purposes. Besides publishing sex-trafficking progress cards on various countries, the company is selling a $10 tube of Soft Hands Kind Heart hand cream, $6 of which is being donated to the organization. Now you can do your part and combat dry, flaky skin at the same time. It’s a win-win. [NYT]

Before Megan Fox became the film industry’s resident sex pot, she was just like any other teenager and even got busted for stealing cosmetics from Wal-Mart. The makeup in question was from the Olsen twins’ range, Mary-Kate and Ashley, and she was apparently promptly banned from the store. The discounted retail chain would no doubt welcome her back now with open arms—and a strict dress code. []

The beauty-inspired reality show business is booming. Last night, TLC debuted its new series, King of the Crown, which follows beauty pageant expert Cy Frakes and his team as they prep contestants for the Gowns and Crowns pageant in South Carolina. So, like Drop Dead Gorgeous, but real. Ladies, to your TiVos! [Entertainment Weekly]
