I have them. I love them. I’m terrified of having babies because I love them so much. I don’t know what I would do if they were taken away by cancer. Yes, I’m vain. Deal with it.
October is the national Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this is a post about some really awesome beauty products you should buy to stay pretty, but also help with the research quest in the elimination of the pesky little shit that invades chests and makes people sick.
There are lots of them I recommend. You know I wouldn’t share anything I wouldn’t personally slather myself with …
MitoQ is part of my nightly ritual. This stuff is science: “the only topical cream proven to deliver ingredients deep down to mitochondria at levels shown to have an immense effect in rejuvenating the cells, encouraging the natural production of collagen and elastin and leaving skin looking radiant with a lit-from-within glow.” If you buy MitoQ any time this month, they will donate 15% of net proceeds to one of the leading national education and support organizations, the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
DECLÉOR Aromatherapy Coffrets are a spectacularly amazing day serum and night balm set in an eco-friendly bamboo case. There are 5 different skin types to choose from and for the 7th year in a row DECLÉOR will donate proceeds to Cancer and Careers, a program of CEW Foundation.
PUR Attitude offers beauty products with zero chemicals that could lead to cancer to begin with, so they are offering 50% of net sales for the brand’s 3-Piece Skin Essentials Kit [moisturizer, face wash and eye cream] and the Fountain of Youth [anti-aging serum] to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) during the month of October.
Bright Future Eye Shadow Compact by Jane Iredale is an adorable mirrored compact featuring five eye shadow shades and a travel-sized eye shadow brush, adorned with a rose-colored Swarovski® Crystal. One hundred percent of profits (not just proceeds!) will be donated to LBBC all year round. These colours are practically universal and would be a great gift for the holidays as well.
FragranceNet.com will donate 15 percent of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation if you buy anything from the “pink boutique”. These are some of the sample fragrances though you can find other beauty products on the site like hairspray, sea salts, massage oils, shower gels, etc.
Film to keep an eye out for: BEAUTY AND THE BREAST gives viewers a behind the scenes look at nine female survivors coping with the harsh realities of breast cancer as they aim to demystify the disease and blossom in the face of adversity. Get ready to cry and rejoice.
Hooray for boobies.
