Enhance your beauty in particular and contribute to women’s health in general by giving to some very important charities. Purchase cosmetics from these companies that support the cause so important to us all- breast cancer awareness and support may lead to a cure someday.
Cancer and Careers – purchase any product with the pink CEW seal and a portion of the proceeds will go to help women who are surviving cancer as they balance work and treatment. Shop products by Fresh, Philosophy, Shiseido, L’Occitane and more and get a free mirrored blotting tissue holder with the purchase of any of the CEW products . We have been using tons of Korres products lately and the Quince Body Butter is great for dry skin.
Some of our favorites:
- Korres Natural Body Butter in Quince, $21.
- Bliss fatgirlscrub, $38.
- Frederic Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream, $20.
Get the limited edition Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion with a pink charm bracelet for $35. For every moisturizer sold, $10 will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
$10 is also donated to the cause when you buy the Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 minis on a keychain – you get a trio of gloss with two charms for $18.50.
Shop the Pink Ribbon Collection and you will help Estee Lauder donate $500,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Also, enjoy free shipping on any pink ribbon product. We like the Elizabeth Hurley Lip Design Collection which includes a lipstick, gloss, pencil and case with mirror for $22.
There are many ways to reduce your risk of developing breast cancer. One of them is to avoid using products containing ingredients that have been linked to breast cancer. Organic Diva wants you to use products that have signed “The Compact For Safe Cosmetics” that pledges not to use cancer-causing ingredients in their products. They are offering 15% off all Organic Diva products through 10.10 with code “healthydiva” at checkout.
Now through 10.12.09 when you shop storewide (not just pink products), they will donate the proceeds to breast cancer research. They even highlight a special selection of products that give women special attention during and after treatment. When you purchase the Sundari Commitment To Heal Gift Set for $25, 2% also goes to the Cancer and Careers charity. The set includes Neem and Blood Orange Body Lotion and Cleanser and a votive candle- the bonus is that there are no harsh chemicals.
During the month of October, 20% of the proceeds from the Think Pink natural collection will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition, a support network for women under 40 living with breast cancer. Of course, Tarte is known for their cheek stain ($30) and we are partial to them, but they also have great lip products that are worth trying. For showing your support, you will receive a free pink Go Dutch Clutch when you spend $40 or more with code “PinkOct9” at checkout.
