We are honored to be delivering these "girly" care packages for our lovely female IDF fighters! Today's delivery of care packages was stocked with thousands of products for our girls protecting Israel. They even received facial soaps and minerals, so they can still pamper themselves, even in times of war!facebook.com
These products are to wash the blood stained hands of yours and your killings in Gaza. #israelwarcrimes #gazaunderattack #freepalestine #idfterrorismDalia Zatara
I didn't realize it was important to look good as you killed innocent civilians.Sara Hindi
Words can't describe how misjudged this post is, and how sad it makes me feel. I wonder if you put these Israeli women round a table with a group of female Palestinians, and they could discuss their pressing needs, would pampering be top of the list? Doubt it.... :(Jason McCormack
It's so sad. The Palestinians don't have basic humanitarian supplies. No food or clean water and the Israeli army is given luxuries. What is this world coming to??Christina Emseis
Another example of how ridiculous this situation is. The needs of an army being satisfied with beauty products while the innocent civilians in Gaza's basic needs of a safe place to shelter, food and water being denied. I'm hoping Garnier have sent an equal amount in real aid to PalestineKaren Neeson
Though most comments were critical, supporters also weighed to thank Stand With Us for their support of the Israeli army:
Look at their smiles. Thank you Stand with Us and the women of IDF.Gail Szusz
Love you all sister, and your best smile .Brain, beauty, behavior, brave soldier!Anita Verawati
I don't have two pennies to rub together right now but if I win big on the euro lottery I would donate a good portion to the IDF. I'm not Jewish but I feel very strongly the plight you suffer. It's a long shot but may you have peace one day!Georgia Earnshaw
Thank you, for giving to the IDF!JJ Diveroli
Many commenters claimed they would boycott Garnier products over the move. Some shared photos as evidence.
