Pink is October’s signature color, and products that benefit Breast Cancer research are popping up everywhere. Beauty supplies, jewelry and clothing, and even home goods are doing double duty by looking great and supporting a worthwhile cause. A true fashionista cares about her wardrobe and the wellbeing of others, so do both with select products from some of our favorite brands. From Estée Lauder to Tory Burch, these designers are reaching out to give even more pink support to October.
If beauty products aren’t your thing, there are clothing options as well. Hit the gym with Under Armour shorts ($30, 10% going to breast cancer charities) or an Ellsworth Project Pink workout tank ($60, 20% benefitting breast cancer research). Or take Line & Dot flowy magenta tank out on the town ($74, 20% going to Susan G. Komen for the Cure). Yumi Kim also has a great floral blouse option ($138, perfect for a day at the office with a pencil skirt or a pair of jeans for the weekend. You can also take the cure close to your heart – and body – with Wacoal’s hot pink lace bra ($2 goes to Komen).
Since we’d never want to give accessories the cold shoulder, of course we have to include the great handbags and shoes that we found to benefit the cause. Tommy Hilfiger has a red leather bag (right), perfect for fall and all of your fall essentials for $398 with 50% of the proceeds going to Breast Health International. Coach also features a pink leather Mia bag, for those of you who want to embrace October’s signature color, in both large ($358, 20% goes to BCRF) and mini ($198). Should you be all set in the handbag department, go for Tory Burch’s Pink Logo rain boots ($150, 15% benefits BCRF) and umbrella option ($45) and hit the stormy weather in style.
As always, Ralph Lauren’s Pink Pony collection benefits the cause, with products ranging from cashmere to candles. 10% of the proceeds go to benefit cancer care and prevention, and as a special edition product, 100% of the sales of their Pink Pony Alligator Wallet ($3995) will go to the cause. Can’t pony up that kind of cash? One of my favorite products that they offer is the “Decorate Your Pink Pony Tee” ($150). Not only do you get the signature Pink Pony black tee, but it’s also like arts and crafts for adults. They had me hooked when they included individual crystals.

Let’s face it; we all are guilty of mistreating our skin from time to time. Whether you used tanning booths in college or have a tendency to poke and prod blemishes instead of just leaving them alone, we are all guilty of subjecting our skin to potential damage. The results of this damage often appear as dark spots due to the extra melanin that is produced at areas of trauma.
Wishing you could turn back time and erase those dark spots? Well, now you can!
Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector is a fragrance free skin cream that can be used by all ethnicities and even by people with the most sensitive of skin. Visible improvements should be noticed in as little as 4 weeks and major improvements should be noticed in 12 weeks. Best of all, it lacks the harsh chemicals that many prescriptive creams contain, but will produce comparable results without the Doctor’s visit or the discomfort.
All of the reviews on Sephora.com corroborated the claims made by Clinique and sounded very positive. As a result, I recently purchased some for myself at Sephora. I haven’t been using it long enough to see a change in my complexion, but it is a gentle face lotion that is moisturizing without being greasy.
So far, so good…but I will keep you informed…
