    Pretty in Pink: Beauty products for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    It’s that time of year again. Summer is officially over and most of us are returning to the serious work of our lives. And with that comes a closer look at our health and well-being. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it’s a great time to schedule a yearly mammogram and encourage the women in your life to do the same. Awareness is a wonderful thing and taking action based on that awareness is even better.

    And after you’ve taken care of your own health, you can go a step further by making a contribution to organizations that support breast health and work to find a cure. Luckily, lots of companies make it really easy to support breast cancer research with special edition products, the proceeds of which go to support the cause.  Here are a few of my picks for the best beauty products for Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2014.

      I just had my mammogram last Friday. It is important for us all to be aware of breast cancer even men which we tend to forget they can get it too. I love the Hard Candy eye shadow and the nail polish. Thanks for sharing.

    12. 5 October 2014 / 4:06 PM

      Wonderful those are really good products for women. I would love to buy some of that for my mother and sister 🙂

      Oh wow I am surprised to see so many companies supporting the cause. I definitely plan to purchase from companies who support Breast Cancer.

    21. 6 October 2014 / 3:44 AM

      It's really nice of companies to donate a percentage of sales of products but I'd love to see a larger number! And year round instead of just during special months. 🙂 I love all the pink.

    22. 6 October 2014 / 4:38 AM

      Philosophy products always smell SO good. I love the lip gloss colors too.

    23. 6 October 2014 / 11:45 AM

      I love that so many brands support breast cancer research/awareness! I'm going to see if I can find some of the Jergens lotion at the store today since I needed some lotion anyways.

    24. 6 October 2014 / 2:32 PM

      The compact and the lip gloss is definitely on my list to get.

    25. 6 October 2014 / 9:47 PM

      The Hard Candy eye shadows look fabulous. I really need some new makeup. Thanks for the suggestion.

    26. 7 October 2014 / 5:20 AM

      This is awesome. I actually stopped donating for this and focused on donating toward Ovarian Cancer research because my stepmom has it. Well, she was in remission for about 3 years and it came back, spreading all over, with a few months left on her prognosis. Cancer isn't fun and it's great that companies are trying to find ways to not just be able to sell a product, but also put some of the sale to a good cause.

      • 10 October 2014 / 5:46 AM

        Sorry to hear about your stepmother. All the best to your family.

    27. 8 October 2014 / 1:05 AM

      Great products! I love Philosophy and giving to great causes.
