Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Before this year, this month meant something to me because my great aunt died from breast cancer years ago. Fast forward to this year and my mother-in-law has been diagnosed (in the early stage...thank goodness) and is currently undergoing treatment. Luckily with time, treatments and knowledge have really progressed. With this being the month that breast cancer is in the spotlight, many companies come out with charitable products. You still get the awesome product you want and part of the proceeds go to the cause. It's a win-win situation for everyone. Here's a list of a few things I've found!

Clinique Dramatically Different lotion (luxury size)- $10 goes to research
Bobbi Brown Pink Ribbon Collection- $10 goes to research
Essie Raise Awareness nail polish- unknown portion goes to Living Beyond Breast Cancer
Donna Karan Cashmere Mist candle- $5 goes to research
New Balance 993 running shoes- unknown portion goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure
EOS Strawberry Sorbet lip balm- 5% going to research
Philosophy Shower for the Cure bath gel- 100% goes to research
Carolee set of three pearl bracelets- unknown portion goes to research
Tweezerman tweezers- unknown portion goes to cancer care
Clarisonic Skincare Brush- unknown portion goes to research

Please think of donating in some way, rather by buying dedicated items or just straight-up donations. Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women. It's already affected two wonderful women in my family. No one is immune, so remember to do self exams along with professional ones. Get to know your body!
