5 Beauty Products That Support Breast Cancer Awareness

October is upon us, which means national Breast Cancer Awareness month is here! With everyone from NFL players to English professors sporting pink this month, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t know the meaning behind the iconic pink ribbon. Of course, fundraising walks and races may not be feasible for everyone over the next few weeks, so why not show your support by shopping for the cause? We’ve rounded up the top five beauty buys that are not only budget-friendly, they also benefit BCA by donating part of their proceeds to research. Read on and start spendin’!

OPI Pink of Hearts Nail Set

For the seventh year in a row, OPI has launched its Pink of Hearts promotion to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. This year’s super cute duo pack contains the classic sheer Pink-ing of You shade, as well as a brand new glitter-glam hue, More Than a Glimmer. The set will also include pink ribbon and crystal decals for all you accent-nail aficionados. Buy now, and during the month of October, OPI will donate $25,000 to Susan G. Komen and $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada. ($15.95, available at salons and ulta.com)

 

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Not that we needed another reason to buy this award-winning magic potion, but for every tube purchased, Smashbox will donate $5 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Smooth lines while fighting cancer? Count us in. ($36.00, ulta.com and smashbox.com)

 

Aveda Limited-Edition Hand Relief Cream

This rosemary and mint-infused hand cream packs an insane amount of hydration in each dollop, thanks to its incredibly rich plant emollients and exfoliating fruit acids.

Everyone’s favorite lip smoothers are doing more this month than just nourishing kissers.

($5.99, available at ulta.com and evolutionofsmooth.com)
