Supporting a Cure is Beautiful

breast-cancer-awareness

1 in 8—that’s the likelihood that you or someone you know will develop breast cancer. 34 percent—that’s the drop in breast cancer deaths since 1990. Breast cancer prevention and treatment continue to grow more effective thanks, in part, to organizations like the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation and City of Hope, which help women detect and treat the disease. Curious about how you can do your part? Let’s explore with a Breast Cancer Awareness Month beauty guide.

    This is a great post. I can certainly speak for the Clinique almost lipstick, that stuff is a staple in my collection – I have a few stashed in my purse, work collection, etc. Glad for the opportunity to help out. I also can’t say enough about tweezerman but the pink ones are ALWAYS sold out.

    I think it’s amazing that so many beauty companies are doing their part in supporting breast cancer. Truly inspiring.

  3. What a great post to give everyone the details of which product purchases benefit breast cancer research or support and how! Thanks!

    My mom had breast cancer. This is a great post. I did not know these companies were supporting Breast cancer research. Thanks for posting and I will share in my Breast cancer group on facebook.

  5. Such a wonderful cause that these companies are supporting, and it’s a great way to get people to participate! I especially like that the lip and blush colors are both pink, so they match the cause in a perfectly pink way.

  6. This is such a simple, and effective way to help do your part for Breast Cancer Awareness month. However, since only a small percentage actually goes to funding research, I wonder if I should just donate directly. Anyway, thanks for this post!
