October is not just for pumpkin flavored goodies and Halloween costume planning. One of the most important things to me about October is that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother and many other strong women I know have been affected by this illness and beat it with flying colors. It is just so important to give back because you never know when someone you love could have her life turned upside down.
Being the avid shopper I am, I'd like to share a list of companies who are doing their part and giving back!!
This pale pink polish with a hint of shimmer is perfect for the every day mani. This polish was exclusively created for Susan G. Koman for the Cure foundation and OPI will being donating $25,000 to the cause!
So if you ever wanted to splurge on a nice pair of fake lashes, this would be the best time to do it! This month, Velour Lashes will be donating a $1 for every lash set purchased to the National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation. I recommend trying the pair, Girl You Crazy. You are getting super thick, quality natural mink hair (cruelty free) that will allow you to wear these lashes up to 25 times!
Although I have never tried this product, the Arcona Magic Pink Ice caught my attention. This daily moisturizing gel claims to feel cool and refreshing on the face. And with the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients, this product will undoubtedly do wonders for your skin. The name alone is enticing and the formula is an eye-catching pink color. Two dollars from every purchase will go the Cancer and Careers foundation!
I know I will be taking advantage of these great pink products and doing my part in fighting the cause! Have you come across any beauty products where profits are being donated to Breast Cancer Awareness research? Would love to hear from you in the comments below!
