Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Beauty For A Cure

by Julia Dalton

October is breast cancer awareness month. It is always outstanding to me how far we have come in the battle for breast cancer and, still, how far we have to go. I don’t know a single person who has not been touched in some way by this monstrous disease. There are many companies that give money to breast cancer research and other breast cancer organizations. I always say, if you are going to purchase something, why not give your money to a company that is going to donate some of the proceeds to a cause. Here are some amazing products that do just that:

Estee Lauder Jeweled Pink Ribbon Compact. Estee Lauder realizes that breast cancer does not only effect woman, but men as well. Because of this, they have added one beautiful blue stone to the compact. Estée Lauder will donate 20% of the suggested retail price of its Pink Ribbon Collection to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Click here to purchase.

Le Mer’s Soothing Lip Balm is one of my favorite products. But now I will be sure to stock up on it even more because $10 of each purchase goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Click here to purchase.

Stila‘s Positive and Pretty cheek and eye palette is stunning, but the fact that Stila gives 10% of the proceeds to various breast cancer research organizations makes it ever more so. Click here to purchase.

Shiseido is an all time favorite anyhow. But, knowing they give $5 from each purchase of their Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in Iron Maiden, just adds more gold stars. Shiseido donates to Cancer and Careers an amazing organization that helps people by empowering them and educating them in their workplace. Click here to puchase.

Clinique is not only selling lipgloss but it is attached to an adorable keyring. This Great Lips Great Cause mirror key ring is an amazing way to have some beautiful product and donate money at the same time. Click here to purchase.
