Every October I am reminded to reflect on loved ones lost to breast cancer. And I remember to celebrate those who survived the dreaded disease. Plus I cheer on the women...and men who are battling breast cancer right now.
So, in the spirit of the pretty pink products that support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here are some great finds that support a good cause. Take a look and consider purchasing one of this products to fight breast cancer.
This pink item is fashionable and more importantly functional for women who have undergone a mastectomy or reconstructive breast surgery. The pink robe has a built-in bra that contains ice-cooling packs for the painful recovery stage. And the robe has inside pockets to hold post-surgery drains. For patients going through the recovery stage of breast operations, this robe is very helpful. And 10% of the proceeds of the sale of every robe goes directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure. The Recovery Brobe can be purchased at www.thebrobe.com.
Stylish and comfortable, Madcapz are fun baseball caps and visors created for women by a woman who went through losing her hair from Grave's Disease. Her colorful collection of caps sell for $22, with visors selling for $19 and 20% of the sales go directly to The Breast Cancer Foundation all month long. Order at www.madcapz.com. Styles are also sold in boutiques, golf pro shops and retailers and gift shops across the country.
Philosophy 100% product
Philosophy has created a luxurious shower gel just for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Buy the 16 oz. $20 bottle of Philosophy Shower for the Cure Shower Gel and every penny of your purchase goes to Women’s Cancer Research Fund. Treat yourself to a bottle of this and give back while giving yourself a little bubbly bath break. This limited edition philosophy product is only available at Ulta stores and at www.philosophy.com. I just love that 100% of the proceeds go to this very important cause all month long.
Philosophy hope in a jar
Also by philosophy is the annual hope in a jar facial moisturizer that gives $5 from every jar sold to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I love how this moisturizer works on my delicate skin and this happens to be one of philosophy's best selling items, so it is fitting that sales from this skin cream gives back all month long.
