It's October, breast cancer awareness month, and I find it very important to point out that besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer among US women. Everyone has been affected by breast cancer in one way or another, but statistics show that one in eight women in the US actually have it. While there are many charities and and companies that support breast cancer awareness all year round, let's take a look at some of the hottest beauty products that are giving back this year.
Purple Lab Sealed with A Cure (SWAC), the company partnered with the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation to launch a lip gloss that is loaded with ingredients such as vanilla, vitamins C and E, peptides, and herbs that help boost your immune system, moisturize and it even smells uplifting. It has real gold flecks too! A portion of the proceeds will go to the Triple Negative Breast Cancer foundation. Available at here for $18.50.
Clarisonic created a limited edition Plus in which 50% of the profits of sales will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. This brush is for the face and body and works your cleanser into your skin getting rid of dry patches, improving your skins texture, and leaving you with an overall cleaner feel and appearance. It's available here for $250.
Paul Mitchell Limited Edition Pink Express Ion Smooth 1.25, the brand partnered Fran Drescher, founder of the Cancer Schmancer Foundation to create this flat iron, which proceeds will be donated. The iron is made of silicone and ceramic and reduces styling time and eliminates static. Visit here to find locations, but hurry up because it's only available through October for $160.
