Komen Foundation) Scary! Every October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness month, the beauty industry gets behind the cause using top-sellers to raise money for breast cancer research. To kick things off, here’s a few skincare favorites that help fight the cause.
La Mer The Hand Treatment, $40. This luxe skin-soothing hand lotion has La Mer’s nutrient-rich Miracle BrothTM which improves skin’s overall condition and diminishes age spots. La Mer will donate $10 per product (with a maximum of $45,000) to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Clinique Limited Edition Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, $38. This best-selling classic has recently been reformulated so it now has double the moisture and improves the skin’s barrier strength. This month, it comes with a cute key pink chain too! Clinique will donate $10 of each purchase to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Philosophy Shower for the Cure, $20. This gentle shampoo, bath, and shower has milk proteins and fruit essences to make skin and hair feel silky soft. Philosophy will donate 100% of its net proceeds from the sale of this product to support the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund.
