We’re well into October, but there’s still plenty of time to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month initiatives. Whether you want to help raise funds for research, treatments or access to screenings (the most reliable way to find breast cancer early and prevent related death, according to the American Cancer Society), you can start by adding select beauty products to your cart—like collagen-boosting facial oils and limited-edition makeup sets—and help give back to a worthy cause.
This month, beauty brands like Bobbi Brown, Clinique and Dr. Dennis Gross will be donating a portion of proceeds from certain bestselling or limited edition products to organizations like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation or charities that provide life-saving resources benefiting at-risk or affected individuals, like The Pink Fund created by the Ralph Lauren Cooperation. Ahead, we’ve rounded up 11 beauty products you can grab this month to help support the cause.
A Buzzy Beauty Tool
If you’ve been meaning to try this ultrasonic beauty tool that helps remove dirt and oil from the skin and improve absorption of your favorite skincare products, now is the perfect time. With all purchases of the device in the icy pink colorway this month, Dermaflash will donate 25% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Freshen Up Your Pits With A Fruity Scent
Struggling with smelly underarms? Consider making the switch to this odor eliminating deodorant from Megababe. It’s aluminum-free, but this natural product is formulated with pH-balancing fruit enzymes that will keep your armpits smelling fresh. Even better, this month 10% of its proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
A Makeup Set For Glam On The Go
This travel-friendly beauty bundle from Sigma beauty features an eyeshadow palette with nine jewel-toned shades, a mini lipstick and blending blush—all of which are essentials that will come in handy for creating a breadth of gorgeous makeup looks at home or on the go. Scoop it up now and 20% of its proceeds will be donated to The Pink Fund to help cover living expenses for breast cancer patients in active treatment.
An Age-Defying Wrinkle Treatment
There are two reasons to try this reusable silicone chest patch. First of all, it’s designed to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles along the décolleté within hours. Plus, 20% of the retail price will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help meet the most critical needs of the breast cancer community.
A Best-Selling Serum To Boost Hydration
Made with high levels of hyaluronic acid (to lock in moisture for up to 72 hours) and Chronolux Technology (to repair the skin and boost collagen), it’s no wonder this is the number one face serum from Estee Lauder. And now that it’s available in a pink sleeve, adding it to your top shelf might be twice as tempting. The best part? The brand will donate 20% of the purchase price (up to $261,000) to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
An Intoxicating Fragrance
In the market for a feminine fragrance? Try this one from Ralph Lauren. It touts a unique floral scent and throughout the month of October, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Pink Pony Fund, Ralph Lauren’s decades-long initiative supporting cancer screenings, early treatment, research and patient navigation.
A Skin-Brightening Cream
If you’re not already using this moisturizer that helps firm, brighten and moisturize the skin, consider adding it into your skincare routine now, so you won’t have to worry about wrinkled, dull or dry-looking skin later or miss an opportunity to support a great cause. Scoop one up by October 31 and 20% of its proceeds will go to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Single Dose Facial Oil To Simplify Your Skincare Routine
If you’re not sure how much is too much when applying face oil, Elemis’ Skin Bliss Capsules—featuring the perfect blend of moringa, rose and lavender oil—will help. The pink capsule (for morning) helps soften the skin and the green capsule (for nighttime) provides a soothing effect. And regardless of sales, the brand will be donating a minimum of $25,000 to The Pink Agenda in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
A Beloved Classic Moisturizer
You can strengthen your skin’s barrier and help support breast cancer causes when you grab this edition of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. Formulated with a cocktail of hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, this moisturizer is great for super dry skin. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, $10 from every purchase will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Soothing Lip Balms To Keep On Standby
These oil-infused lip glosses are perfect for keeping your lips hydrated. And with a non-sticky finish, your lips and hair will thank you on windy fall days. Proceeds of up to a maximum of $110,000 will be donated to breast cancer research.
An Easy At-Home Manicure
Kiss offers a range of decorative press-on nails to commemorate every occasion, and Breast Cancer Awareness Month is no exception. This special edition set featuring pink ribbons is proof. Add it to your cart and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
