These beauty brands are making a special effort to raise money for breast cancer research.
October officially marks Breast Cancer Awareness month. A full 31 days dedicated to supporting breast cancer charities and raising awareness about the cancer that affects more than 3.8 million women in the United States, according to Breastcancer.org.
Every year loads of beauty brands release products that specifically support various breast cancer charities. These organizations encourage and fund breast cancer screenings, treatments, education, and events (like the More Thank Pink Walk). So when restocking your beauty bag, you’re actually helping find a cure for breast cancer—it’s truly a win-win!
Oftentimes, brands will recreate their best-selling products in a pink colorway to honor the pink ribbon symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Many will also include gifts (like this pink camouflage holder from Estée Lauder), pink ribbon accessories, bracelets, and key charms, too.
This year we’ve rounded up some of the best beauty products you can shop that support the important cause. Our list includes an award-winning moisturizer, shiny oil-infused lip glosses, and rosy fragrances. You’ll also find a rose-gold LED vanity makeup mirror that’s perfect for creating flawless looks and a nourishing hand cream that will keep your palms feeling smooth and soft all year long.
Now’s the time to really make a difference with your dollar—and you can look better while doing so, too! With every purchase, you’ll help support innovative research that moves the world one step closer to a cure. Shop these great products below, knowing that each one makes a meaningful difference.
