Pretty in Pink for a Purpose

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. That frightening statistic shows that breast cancer has affected most of us. I have lost two aunts to it and hope that they find a cure to eradicate this devastating disease.

To help fight against breast cancer, you can pamper yourself with these pretty in pink products. A portion of the proceeds from these items will go to breast cancer research.

Do you typically buy similar products during Breast Cancer Awareness month (October) to help fund research for the disease? If not, would you?


Clarisonic Brush in Pnk available at www.sephora.com for $195


Estee Lauder Elizabeth Hurley Lip Trio available at www.nordstrom.com for $16


Smashbox Pink Power Eye & Lip Kit available at www.ulta.com for $46


Jane Iredale PureGloss in the Pink available at www.janeiredaledirect.com for $19

Love it! I'm so happy so many of us are getting involved in Breast Cancer Awareness especially since so many women of color are affected.

BGG, breast cancer has hit home for me as well and I'm willing to do whatever I can to help find the cure. I'd love to have any of these items and knowing my dollars are going towards a great cause just makes it mo betta!

I love October simply because I get to walk in the Susan G. Koman walk for Breast Cancer awareness. I love making people aware of a condition that we as women should really be concerned about!! And the fact that you can purchase your favorite products in pink AND donate to the cause--well, that just makes it sweeter!

I was in target for those who love to cook they have an entire pot and pa set in pink. It is so nice. To bad my husband push me past it. I tried to justify the purchase but he was so not trying to hear it.
Oh well, I walk every year so I have that to look forward too.

I am a big fan of Breast Cancer Awareness products. I love Sonia Kashuk brushes from Target and now they have pink set that I MUST own.

To my knowledge, no one who I'm related to has had breast cancer, but I realize the need to pay close attention and thanks BGG for the reminder.

Like everyone else here, breast cancer is stealing people I love.

I already have the pink Clarisonic brush, but have my eye on Estee's lip trio and some pink small kitchen appliances.

I always donate to the cause, but I wish they sold these products all year round.
