I love when companies, especially big ones like Estee Lauder join together to help out a great cause such as breast cancer awareness. And since we're in the month of October, I thought I'd share some amazing products that not only help support the cause, but are pretty awesome too.
So what can we do to help?
Join the efforts to prevent and find a cure for breast cancer by shopping! Cosmetic companies offer limited edition products and a portion of the proceeds (though most companies will make a minimum contribution regardless of sales) benefit breast cancer awareness and research foundations like The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (which was founded by Estee Lauder’s daughter in law, Evelyn Lauder), Living Beyond Breast Cancer, Cancer Care and the Young Survivor Coalition. Of course, you could always make a direct contribution to the charity of your choice.

The perfect time to try the NEW Perfectionist CP+R Wrinkle-Lifting Serum and support Breast Cancer Awareness with a new Pink Ribbon Keychain and charm. This product is my absolute favorite from Estee Lauder, it works great on small lines around your eyes and lips. The charm is the 2012 Pink Ribbon with a touch of blue to represent the approximately 1% of all breast cancer cases in the United States that are diagnosed in men. To keep the message always in mind, the charm is inscribed, “Estée Lauder Breast Cancer Awareness 2012.” Size: 1.7 fl. oz./50 ml Sells for $95
Darphin will donate $10 USD to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for each Limited Edition Hydraskin Intensive Skin-hydrating Serum sold throughout the month of October. Potent water-veil and infusing serum instantly delivers relieving, reviving hydration to all thirsty skin. High-efficiency serum concentrate with extreme hydration complex, incorporating powerful Pomegranate penetrates onto the skin to help repair and reinvigorate critical water reserves within the surface skin cells.
The Darphin Hydrating Serum leaves your skin feeling like pure silk. I love the blue bottle, it looks so lovely on my night stand. And since the proceeds go to breast cancer research, it's the best way to look beautiful and help a great cause.
Overall I think Estee Lauder is doing a great thing by helping out in the Month of October. Make sure you check out all the above fabulous products!
