Last Chance! Five Beauty Buys To Make Before Breast Cancer Awareness Month Ends
October 31, 2007
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is almost over, and we’ve already done our self-breast exam, shopped for beauty products and fashions benefiting the cause. But before October comes to a close, we found a few more great products that we couldn’t resist.
Candles are so last season; this October is all about fragrance sticks. All proceeds of the deliciously feminine Antica Farmacista in Peonia Romantico ($58) will go to Gilda's Club, an organization providing support for those living with Breast Cancer and their families. For something a little spicier, try Sweet Grass Farm’s Hope, Courage & Faith Fragrance Stick Set ($29.95), with 10% of the proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Summer is over, and it’s time to officially retire those strappy sandals and indulge in some soothing foot therapy. Upper Canada will donate 25 cents from every sale of its Peppermint Foot Therapy collection to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This stuff really works – one night spent with a generous amount of the Cracked Heal Treatment ($7.99) and all evidence of my completely impractical devotion to platform shoes completely vanished.
Created especially in honor of breast Cancer Awareness Month 2007, a portion of the proceeds from the limited edition Blushing Pink Fusion Soft Lights & Brush Set from Smashbox Cosmetics ($59) will benefit the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund, a grassroots advocacy group dedicated to finding a cure.
I didn't think they could do much to improve upon my favorite beauty tool. Then they went ahead and created the CLARISONIC® Pink Skin Care Brush ($195), and will donate $10 of each sale to fight against breast cancer.
