    Shopping for Breast Cancer Awareness

    It’s my favorite month of the year and part of that reason is that it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There is something so special about coming together to support such an incredible cause. A cause that is so near and dear to so many of our hearts.

    It is so amazing seeing so many companies and industries support this cause. I read just this morning about these navy fighter jets that were painted bright pink to bring awareness. Fantastic, I’m telling you! But there are also so many great products out there that give a bit of their proceeds to Breast Cancer research, awareness and several different hospitals. So I am going to share some of my favorites with you today

    I could go on and on about this stuff. I have pretty thin, fine hair and it is the perfect texturizing spray. A percentage of their Special Edition Pink Texture Spray will be given to the National Breast Cancer Association so go get some!

    Aveda recently released their new moisturizing and uplifting cream. So with the temps starting to drop, I can’t wait to get my hands on some of this. ALSO $4 of every bottle purchased go so cruelty free research.

    Ok, so this is one product I have been wanting to try for a long time. The longer my hair gets the tanglier it gets. Can we all be real for a sec, this is one of the most annoying things about being a girl. But Wet Brush fixes that with their super thin bristles. Also, these brushes are also safe to use on wet hair, hair extensions and wigs. However the real kicker is that 20% of the proceeds of this brush goes to supporting Breast Cancer research.

    Origin’s skincare is one of the best in my opinion. I have their charcoal mask and it has done wonders for my skin. I use it a little too religiously (ha not even kidding)! They just released a Breast Cancer Awareness Overnight mask that will leave your skin super hydrated and refreshed. Just guess what? $5 of every mask bought goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I can’t wait to pick this product up.

    If you’ve been reading for a while, then you know how much I love HalfUnited (Here & Here). Well they just came out with a pink beaded necklace where 50% of the proceeds go to serving cancer patients in the Raleigh/Durham Area through Magnolia’s Meals at Home. It’s really cool seeing how our purchase cannot only go to help but locally at that!

    Who doesn’t love a good candle, especially during this time of year? This soft floral scented candle is the perfect addition to your home and it gives 10% of it’s sales to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The C.O. Bigelow candles that I have bought have been some of my favorites so i’m sure this one will not disappoint either!

    E O S    S H E A    B U T T E R

    Remember when EOS’ egg lip balms came out? They sure have come a long way and I have to say I have tried all of their products. And I’m a fan! They have the best shaving cream and lotions which helps keep my super dry skin hydrated and soft. Well if you buy their Berry Blossom lotion 100% of the proceeds go to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Yes, you read that right! 100% Target here I come – ha!

     These are just a few of the hundreds of companies that are taking a stand and supporting such an amazing cause. I am constantly inspired by companies that giveback so snaps to every single one of you! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy National Breast Cancer Awareness month!
