BCA Beauty Buys

Last week on BetterTV I had the pleasure of showcasing some of my favorite beauty brands that are donating to breast cancer research in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Check out the segment here.  From 10% to 100% it seems almost every company is giving back.  Whether you're stocking up on your own beauty loot or looking to give a gift, here are some great options. Estee Lauder Dream Solid Perfume Compact, $49.50

100% of the suggested retail price will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).  This tiny compact is filled with Estee Lauder Pleasures, a fruity-floral fragrance and makes a great gift.

Aquage Uplifting Foam, $17 at salons

A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  Trust me, this root lifter that'll give you the volume you need to be on trend for fall.

Nails Inc. Paint Your Pinkie Pink, $9.50

For every bottle sold, $1 will be donated to BCC, to help raise vital funds to support its life-saving research into the disease. Nails Inc. has partnered with designer, Matthew Williamson and British model, Poppy Delevingne to create two limited edition polishes for the campaign.

Philosophy Shower for the Cure, $20 

Donates 100% of its net proceeds to the women’s cancer research fund. It's a triple threat, acting as a shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath and offers a hint of a fresh, floral scent.

Nest donates 10% of the retail price of each passion candle purchased BCRF. Notes include peony, garden roses, sandalwood and a hint of flowering pittosporum, Evelyn Lauder’s beloved fragrance note.
