Support the Cause: Breasts, Beauty & Where to Donate your Bucks

Support the Cause: Top 10 Beauty Products to Support Breast Cancer Research

We all know when October rolls around and we start seeing the beautiful sea of pink products popping up that it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What you might not know is just exactly how purchasing these products helps support the cause. I have chosen 10 of my favorite products out there that are donating portions of their profits to various charities to help support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I've also included a very handy self breast exam "how to" chart courtesy of Soul Cycle that you can print off and keep handy (see what I did there?) If you're close to one of Soul Cycle's locations, you can go in and grab a laminated copy of this chart to hang in your shower. Looking for a location to receive a mammogram? Check with your general practitioner or OB/GYN to see where they recommend, or you can check the National Breast Cancer Foundation for free or low cost services in your area.

Sephora Collection Together in Pink Hair Ties $6
Clinique Great Skin, Great Cause $38
Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink Ribbon Lip Gloss Collection $60
Estee Lauder 'Evelyn Lauder & Elizabeth Hurley Dream Pink' Collection $29.50
Aveda Hand Relief Lotion $26
Jane Iredale 'Smell the Roses' Hydration Spray $29
Smashbox Limited Edition 'Be Legendary' Lipgloss $20
Eos BCA Lip Balm & Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer $10
Arcona Magic Pink Ice $40
Pink Honey Marc Jacobs $76
This year, Ulta is offering various dollar amounts to be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation either online or in-store. You can donate as little as $1 up to $100 (or more) and you are automatically entered to win a huge beauty bag (pictured above) worth almost $600 of goodies! If you want to check it out, click this link here to be taken to their website.

As promised above, here is Soul Cycle's self-exam "how to" chart. Print it off, laminate it, hang it, put it somewhere you'll see it on the regular. It is so vital to perform this exam monthly so that you can familiarize yourself with what's normal. Please read below this chart for what to do if you DO find a lump.
