Beauty Buys and Breast Cancer Awareness Month


October is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” As such, many retailers will be showcasing specialty products by participating brands.

Many beauty brands show their support by packaging certain products in pink for the month and donate a portion of their proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundations provides funding for clinical research and for increasing awareness programs amongst the public for breast health. The Foundation also guarantees that 85 cents of every dollar donated will go directly towards research and awareness programs.

Clinique is participating by donating an impressive $10 for every bottle of their popular Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion sold.

Prescriptives is guaranteeing a $40,000 donation to BCRF, but if you would like to show your support for Prescriptives’ participation simply purchase their limited edition Pink Ribbon Cheek and Eye Palette.

Bobbi Brown is also offering a $30,000 donation to the organization by offering a limited edition Pink Ribbon Collection, a creamy pink lip color and a glitter pink lip balm.

Estee Lauder has their own Pink Ribbon Collection, including the Golden Ribbons Mirrored Compact, Elizabeth Hurley Lip Design Collection, Evelyn Lauder Lip Design Collection and Jeweled Pink Ribbon Pin. Buying any of these products will support Estee Lauder’s impressive $500,000 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

There are many other cosmetic and skincare lines doing their part for this worthy cause- just look for the pink ribbon and do your part with a purchase. If anything it is a good excuse for a splurge and you can pat yourself on the back for being such a fabulous socially conscious shopper.
