According to BreastCancer.org, approximately 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime and about 40,000 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2014 from breast cancer, These are very frightening statistics, but with the help of your favorite beauty brands, you can do something to give back. Here are some of my favorite skin care brands that are donating proceeds to help the fight against Breast Cancer during the month of October. Start shopping!
For the eighth consecutive year, DECLÉOR will donate 10% of net proceeds of the Sensorial Travel Collection sold during the month of October to Cancer and Careers, a program of CEW Foundation in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
This set features a signature AROMESSENCE™ Serum, made from 100% pure and natural essential oils sourced from around the world, and four additional corresponding products in travel sizes which together offer a skincare program to treat, protect and repair the skin while addressing the specific skin concern from within. The products are encased in a large, reusable zippered travel pouch.
The DECLÉOR Sensorial Travel to the Orient Hydrating Skincare Program retails for $69 and can be purchased at http://www.decleorusa.com.
Kat Burki is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month by donating 10% of sales (from retailers nationwide, online at KatBurki.com, and from their flagship store in Westport, CT) to The-Rose.org, an organization that believes “Every Woman Deserves Quality Breast Health Care.” Additionally, Kat Burki will be offering their signature Tuberose Body Crème at the discounted price of $50 (normally $62) for the month of October.
For those in the Westport, CT area: Kat Burki is also offering complimentary mini facials at the flagship store every Saturday in October from 12 pm- 4pm (RSVP required) to those customers who are thinking pink. The store is located at 175 Post Rd W, Westport, CT, 06880. Call (888) 881-7677 to make an appointment.
During the entire month of October, a percentage of the net profits from Avon ANEW Vitale Day and Avon ANEW Vitale Night Cream ($5) are donated directly back to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. Each purchase helps fund access to quality breast health care and research into the causes and prevention of breast cancer. To date, Avon breast cancer programs in more than 50 countries have donated more than $815 million for breast cancer care and research. The Avon ANEW Vitale Day Cream and Avon ANEW Vitale Night Cream work synergistically to not only help fight the signs of aging, dullness and fatigue, but also fight breast cancer, too! It’s a win-win.
Both retail for $28 each and are available for purchase at http://www.avon.com.
