Beauty For Breast Cancer

We never need an excuse to buy our favourite beauty products, however, if we did, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is as good as any, if not better. If you've noticed your go-to make-up and skincare counters have all turned a pretty shade of blush, it's not a trend, but all for a great cause: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

According to statistics, one in every eight women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, and that staggering fact makes it all the more important we all get involved.

We’ve rounded up the best beauty buys that are giving a portion of their proceeds to various foundations in support of breast cancer awareness and research. Keep scrolling to shop the limited-edition products before month end.
