Angelina Jolie's Favorite Body Lotion

10/23/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Angelina Jolie doesn’t just help the needy in Africa when she visits (or adopts) — she is even in a charitable state of mind in the shower! The star just requested Shea Terra Nubian Honey Shower Creme, $9, and Shea Butter Body Lotion, $12, which contain Africa-harvested ingredients. Fifty cents from each bottle sold will go to the (greatest named charity ever) Nubian Goat Project, which purchases goats for needy families in Ethiopia. So, not only is Angelina’s heart softened, so is her skin! — Clarissa Cruz

Kristin, which country do you live in? And how can other people agrree with you, when you obviously haven’t checked the facts?

You seeem to be just blubbering off!

Look, what Angelina and Brad did for Hurricane Katrina! They have also been helping all sorts of people in THIS country with their own joint foundation!

Didn’t you see all that coverage in the news and magazines?

They help out – much more than you’ll ever know.

You need to read more on who does what in this country before you “sound off.”

And another thing, Kristin!

Didn’t you just read in the papers and online that Angelina and Brad just donated $100,000 to the Daniel Pearl Foundation?

Puuulease, make sure you know what you’re talking about…before you give the worng information.

Elly, since you asked, I live in the USA. Chicago, Illinois actually. Kudos to the Jolie-Pitt family. I am not clueless, quite the opposite actually. And I am an educated individual all the same so I do have an idea of what is going on in the world today. I just find it more or less ironic that those who can bring focus on organizations tend to focus on overseas charities whereas focusing on the issue here at home. Great they donate their excess money to foundations. The Daniel Pearl Foundation was formed in memory of journalist Daniel Pearl to further the ideals that inspired Daniel’s life and work. The foundation’s mission is to promote cross-cultural understanding through journalism, music, and innovative communications. Although I am not certain how that keeps the US borders safe, or decrease costs of health care for all, or makes our schools safe form gunmen. But since it is a foundation supported by them it must be good, right? And, please don’t get me started on Katrina relief- I had family there who lost everything. I also volunteer my time with Habitat for Humanity- you know helping people build homes who could not afford to buy otherwise? Just because you go to a Third World country on a PR campaign doesn’t make you a humanitarian. So don’t sound off on me without knowing the facts, either. Why not look in our own backyard and stop being the watchdog of the world- can’t hurt to try to resolve the issues here in the States.

But, hey, I can be just like Angelina if I use her lotion, too, right?? Assuming she actually uses it, though.

I LOVE ANGIE! She’s my favorite actress & biggest inspiration.

I love Angelina. She’s a great actress, mother, and humanitaritarian. With Brad and Angie together as a couple, can do more to help other in needs with their effort, time, money. These two are a great inspiration to me and my family and we love how they use their celebrity’s status to help others despite a strong critism from the haters.

there is always someone who has to say something bad about someone else. Angelina is wonderful.

Kristin, since you are an educated individual, you must come across the phrase: “To each their own.” Everyone will have their own paths in life, their own passions in life, their own way of fulfilling those passions … if it means that I want to support children in Poland and not Africa, that is my choice … and the right to speak freely in this country prohibs you from judging me.
And since you are an educated individual, you must also know that all of the third world countries do not have enough money for a meal on a daily basis … much less two or three meals. That of course is backed by the governments that are in such turmoil that it will possibly take the next 70 years for any country in Africa to step back and realize that this is not the way to go. In the meantime, we all have one thing in common … all of us … on the face of this earth have one thing in common … we’re all human … we all have the same dreams … the same fundamental needs … people in Africa are no different than people in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Poland, etc.
Do not judge people for their own individual paths and passions in life … I also have a passion for Africa … I think that it’s a continent in great need of human compassion and assistance … as is the USA … but the USA is in a much better place to assist its own country with its own problems. There is enough money to support everyone …
And a final though Kristin, since you are an educated individual, you know that this type of a conversation with its many opinions can’t be thrown upon everyone else … because everyone has their own opinion and we as a human race judge way too quickly if it’s not our own.

I usually just read this stuff but had to comment not on Brad and Angelina but on how worked up people get about this. Who really cares what they choose to do with their money. What they do with it is there business. No one tells you how to spend your money why should we tell them just cause they’re celebrities.

krisin get over it. The needy ppl over here have way more opportunites to get help than the ppl in third world will ever have! Hello ?! thats why they’re 3rd world. Helping ppl anywhere in the world is great. Some ppl are just too damn nitpicky. And i dont think Angie would waste this much time of her life and money on a PR campaign. Dont ya think spenndind tons of time annd adopting children is taking a PR campagin too far. Well i guess Angelina must re ally care what WE think about her. LMAO NOT!! Wait a minute this might be totally of topic but i need to ask Are you a super duper big jennifer aniston fan?. I’m reallygetting that vibe and if that’s the case then all I have to say GET OVER IT! Jenn obvouisly has and rightfully so…

I absolutely love these body products, and any other natural scented products.. oatmeal, lavendar, mint,etc. It’s like you’re at a spa when you use them. It’s great.
