6. Billie wants women to grow out their moustaches this November.
The razor company's ultimate goal is to eradicate the stigma surrounding women and their body hair. On their agenda: No Shave November, aka the charitable movement which encourages men to grow facial hair to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer. This year, the body care label is campaigning for women to get in on the fun, too, by letting their upper lip hair grow. 100% of donations made to the cause will be matched by Billie's, who will donate up to US$50,000 to the Movember Foundation.
