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

I must admit that in the beginning I didn’t care for Angelina’s ways, back in her Billy Bob Thorton days. But over the past few years, I have become to admire her strengths and passion to help the poor and underprivledged. Angelina is doing the work of the Lord. It does not matter what country or continent your in. We are all Gods children…It just so happens that in these other countries they don’t have what we have. They are starving, they have no homes like we do, they live in tents, shacks, they have no corner grocery store, and barely have any clean water. They don’t even have the means to grow food. They barely have clothes or shoes. The people in the USA need to consider themselves very very blessed. Angelina does not think highly of herself. She gives and gives of herself and her money to the deserving,(the Poor). She is one of the most humbled people I have seen. Not to many so called stars would ever make it their lifes mission to travel to all of these under developed nations to give their all to help the people of these nations. She doesn’t dress in bright colors, but dresses in dark colors as to not bring attention to herself, because she knows it is not about her, it is about the needy. It is very respectable and shows respect for the poor countries and their people. I say keep on doing God’s work Angelina and Brad, and don’t pay attention to the jealous, your rewards wait in heaven. GOD is in control, and when GOD puts something on your heart for you to do, that is what you do. So, be careful you out there that are judging what Angelina and Brad are doing. Because you are judging what GOD has called them to do.
GOD BLESS YOU ANGELINA AND BRAD AND YOUR CHILDREN AS YOU TRAVEL TO ALL THESE COUNTRIES TO DO GODS WORK.

Angie looks good in anything she wears from eyewear to dresses she has a style that makes her standout.I admire her unselfish support of the needy.It’s a very rare trait.As a famous artist she didn’t focus her horizon inside the showbiz environment alone and she is aware that behind those fame and glitter there’s a real world outside the set.She’s a real model as a humanitarian and Bradd Pitt is lucky to have Angie as his wife.I wish you both happiness and I hope that your marriage will last forever.Take care Angie and Brad.Iknow how hard it is as a parent.

Freaking Americans are never happy. They complain about everything. That’s why your country is looked down upon by other countries. Grow up you imbeciles.

In response to other posts on here:
I am a citizen of the world, and human kind is my business whether it’s local or abroad – it should be the same for everyone else too. I admire Angelina and all her hard work raising awareness for many causes. Yes in her earlier years she was troubled, but as she herself said being a mother has completely changed her life, and her outlook on things. More power to her.

About the products – I use Shea Terra products and they are great!

Angelina is a very unique individual. She’s a different kind of Hollywood starlete & should be applauded for her efforts.

I HAVE to comment on this ~

Re: Kathi comment: “she is a class-A home-wrecker from the word go. She marched off with Billy Bob Thornton, took PDA to a new level and then hooked her lusty claws into Brad Pitt”.

I don’t recall Angelina hitting any man over the head & slinging them over her shoulder & caring them off. They walked of their “OWN FREE WILL”. Every one makes choices in life, No one knows what goes on behind closed doors. Stop JUDGING people you don’t know.

As far as their charity work … it’s HIGHLY commendable that famous people are giving back … ESPECIALLY to 3rd World Countries. Yes, we do have people in America who are having it hard (Ever heard of AFDC??). The people & children in Africa are STARVING TO DEATH on a DAILY basis & Not because they don’t want to work either. They are a hardy people who manage to smile in the face of devastating loss & hardship. People everywhere could learn something from them. Because of Angelina’s generous contribution’s to poverty-stricken countries … now OTHER famous people are following suit & also lending a helping hand (It’s a Domino effect & Angie is responsible for starting the increased generosity Hollywood is now showing).

Back to the thought of what this comment was intended for … I have & always will support item’s that are safe from Animal cruelity & have the added benefit of helping others in need.
