National Bullying Prevention Month: Clarisonic x PACER #CleanTheMean Campaign

Sadly in recent years, bullying has grown significantly. Whether it’s verbal, physical, social, or cyberbullying, this issue is having tremendous and lasting harmful effects on children, teens, and adults. Bullying has become an accepted childhood rite of passage, and it shouldn’t have to be. You may or may not know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month. To help bring an end to all forms of bullying, Clarisonic is partnering with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, the preeminent bullying prevention charity in the nation, for the Clarisonic x PACER #CleanTheMean campaign.

PACER and Clarisonic (the creator of the #1 most-recommended skin-cleansing device by U.S. dermatologists*), announce a new partnership and campaign designed to drive awareness and raise donations for PACER’s bullying prevention efforts. Clarisonic was founded with the belief that healthy, beautiful-looking skin can help people be their most confident selves. Through this partnership, Clarisonic hopes to encourage young people to love the skin they’re in and to be confident advocates. For every #CleanTheMean social post shared on Facebook or Instagram this year, Clarisonic will donate $1 to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, up to $100,000.

“We passionately believe that kids who feel safe, accepted, and supported will live up to their full, brilliant potential,” says Julie Hertzog, Director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. “We are excited to join forces with Clarisonic to launch the #CleanTheMean campaign—a compelling way to spread awareness and encourage young people to be confident advocates for themselves and others.”

“All of us at Clarisonic are inspired by the work that PACER has done to prevent bullying with education, advocacy, and positivity,” says Elisabeth Araujo, President of Clarisonic. “We’re excited to help make the world a kinder, more beautiful place, and hope people will join us simply by sharing one of our #CleanTheMean stories or one of their own.”

The Clarisonic x PACER #CleanTheMean Campaign is designed to drive awareness and raise donations for PACER’s bullying prevention efforts. The money raised through this campaign will help PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center continue put important resources in the hands of parents, educators, and students alike to help put an end to the national bullying epidemic. These resources include classroom lessons, school programming ideas, tips, tools, and stories of people who have transitioned from being a bullying target to a bullying prevention advocate, like 17-year old Natalie:

Natalie shares: “The best thing I did was reach out. I really felt like I was internalizing a lot of it and I was blaming myself. I was ashamed to go to anyone to talk about it. But as soon as I started opening up and telling people about it—telling my parents, telling a teacher about it that I really trusted — that’s when it started to get better.”

Cocktails & Couture Lounge

Although we received the very sad news that Whitney Houston passed away while enjoying a much needed break from the craziness of New York Fashion Week, the eclectic mix of beauty and fashion media, influencers et al in attendance at the Cocktails and Couture Lounge turned the tragic news into one of celebration, not only of Whitney Houston but of life in general.


Hosted by Cocktails & Couture Founder and veteran beauty expert, Lianne Farbes, guests were treated to blowouts by BabyLiss, manicures by Oasis Day Spa, beauty products by Tarte Cosmetics, travel cases by CupCase Your Bras, skincare products by Proactiv, cocktails and sweets by Hpnotiq, hors d’oeurves by Honeybun Catering, music by DJ Belle DE Jour.

One highlight of the evening were the raffles – Proactiv held a raffle where one lucky reader won an Alexander Wang handbag (pictured above) in addition to other guests winning Cocktails & Couture raffle prizes from Clarisonic, DDF, Ulta Beauty and Hpnotiq – I unfortunately was not one of the winners, no matter how much I silently begged to win the gorgeous bag or the Clarisonic. Other than not winning, I fully enjoyed the chance to relax and just enjoy the pampering, cocktails and the music. RIP Whitney Houston
