Journey of Dreams

I don’t know what smells better – the sweet smell of a baby just-after-bath-time or the smell of sea salt coming off the ocean as the waves crash onto the beach. What I do know is that some of our most powerful memories are tied to scents. The smell of cookies in the oven may remind you of your Grandmother, or the smell of pine trees reminds you of the holidays. But what if there was a scent that made you remember a time when you made a difference in the lives of women and children? 

At Mary Kay, we have just the scent – the Beauty that Counts® limited edition Journey of Dreams™ Eau Du Toilette fragrance.  Through this global initiative, Mary Kay customers can set dreams in motion by simply purchasing this fragrance. 

In the United States, from May 16 - August 15, $2.50 will be donated from each sale of this new floral fragrance to support The Mary Kay Foundation’s efforts to end domestic violence and fund research for cancers affecting women. Our hope is that Journey of Dreams™ can lead to a journey of recovery. 

In Brazil, donations from Beauty that Counts® support organizations providing education and prevention programs for breast cancer.  At Mary Kay China, employees and independent sales force members are helping to fund community and neighborhood volunteer programs aimed at changing the lives of women and children.  In Germany, donations provide a helping hand to organizations focused on homeless mothers and their children. 

When you take in the alluring scent of this unforgettable fragrance, we hope it reminds you that together with our Independent Beauty Consultants and faithful Mary Kay brand lovers (like you!) around the world, we can make a beautiful difference in the lives of millions.
