Hey UK! Penhaligon's Has a Great "Movember" Contest for You

I just learned about this through my Penhaligon's contact and you had better believe that if I were in the UK I would be taking advantage of this contest. So if you happen to be across the pond, check this out!

From my understanding this is a "Men's Heath" month thing, and Penhaligons UK will be donating 20% of their online sales and in store sales of their shaving products to Mens Health, specifically prostate cancer. This is particularly timely for me - I just learned someone close to me recently had treatment for prostate cancer. So if I were over there you know I'd be buying my husband some shaving products! 

The Contest and The Prize
Wording taken from Penhaligon's Website... they say it a lot better than I could so I hope they don't mind me quoting! Get full details on Penhaligon's site.

To enter The Penhaligon's Moustache Awards we ask that all Mo Bros send us a picture of their BM (Before Mo) and AM (After Mo) and even their WIPM (Work In Progress Mo). Pictures can be emailed to or posted directly to our Facebook page. Entries must be submitted by midnight on 1st December. On December 3rd the Penhaligon’s team will choose their favourite Mos! All the entrants will be featured in our online Moustache Gallery.
The first prize winner will receive £500 worth of Penhaligon’s products and a gold moustache award designed for us by Tatty Devine. 2nd Prize will receive £250 worth of Penhaligon’s products and a silver moustache award, while the 3rd prize winner will receive £125 worth of products and a bronze moustache award. *
Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start November 1st clean shaven and then grow a moustache (‘Mo’) for the entire month. The Mo becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.
So UK folk... Will you be supporting Movember?

Update: US people - you can enter the Movember contest via Penhaligon's Facebook page.
