Apart from direct donation, another way we can show our support is to shop for the special products and companies have committed to donate part of the sale proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Beauty brands like Jo Malone, Estee Lauder, Origins, Clinique all have special pink products to support this good cause.
As for myself, I have purchased the Bobbi Brown French Pink Set. I bought mine from Selfridges. The set costs £35, and £5 will be donated to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
This exclusive set includes the French Pink Blush embossed with a BCA ribbon in a mirrored compact, and a mini Face Blender Brush in a bright pink handle.
The set is so cute! Bobbi Brown's blush and brush never disappoint. And for once, spending money on makeup is for such a good cause! There is nothing not to love about this set.
So! Go out this sunday and look for the pink ribbon symbols - spending for once is not just to treat yourself, but it is to help others and contribute to a good cause too!
