Every October, officials at major breast cancer charities encourage people to wear pink and raise funds for research into the cause of the disease as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
While there are many great ways to show support for the important cause and make life-saving research happen, there are many beauty brands offering limited-edition products that include a give back and give a donation to charity in the price. Read on for a round-up of the month's best buys.
So you can Wear it Pink with your make-up, Trinny London will be donating 10 per cent from a special pink product collection to Breast Cancer Now. In addition, the Lip2Cheek in shade Sherin, a warm peach-terracotta shade, carries an evergreen donation. And throughout October, Trinny London will be offering 1:1 virtual appointments to those undergoing cancer treatment, with the aim of sharing the best products, tips and tricks as their skin adapts, with the service free on 22 October.
This month, the team at skincare make-up brand Jane Iredale is launching the HydroPure Hyaluronic Lip Gloss in limited-edition shade Pink Glacé. This cool pink lip gloss with a subtle shimmer suits all skin types and offers the lip-loving benefits of a balm for a fuller, supple pout. But even better, 100 per cent of the profits will be donated to Against Breast Cancer, an organisation that supports pioneering research into new treatments, tools, and earlier diagnosis.
