6 Ways to Wear Pink & Show Your Support!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! In honor of the month we have been featuring fabulous products this week that give back to the cause :)
Today I have 4 fave products that are rewarding for you AND for the research / aide efforts of those battling, recovering from or supporting loved ones with Breast Cancer.
The elegant pen is is a perfect size for taking with you where ever you go and had a sturdy (Parker's famous) Arrow Clip holder that shows detailed quality in the design. The pen is pink (of course) to highlight the cause and writes in blue ink very fluently and eloquently! It feels natural in the grip of my hand and I love keeping this around on my desk or even bring it to meetings, I know I can always find the "pink pen" and not forget it or have someone steal it :) LOVE Parker Pens! www.parkerpen.com
Made to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, brown spots and skin discoloration, as well as reducing the thinning of the skin that occurs with aging. This product means business! Luxury and beautiful skin make a fabulous combination and when I used this on my (clean) skin I immediately could feel the quality of the formula and it smoothes perfectly over my face. I loved how it was such a light lotion that absorbed into my skin while also leaving a protective, hydrating barrier on the surface. I saw results when I woke up in the morning as my skin looked more even toned and glowing! With continued use I will see optimal results within 4-6 weeks as my skin will look younger with less fine wrinkles and scars! I will have to give an updated report by that time, but so far after a week of use I am satisfied! You don't have to strictly use on your face, you can also apply to your neck, decolletage or hands :) www.mitoq.com
This product smelled amazing!!! That was the first thing I noticed. Next I liked how hydrating the oil serum was when I applied it to my (clean) face. It absorbed in and felt comfortable on, not wishing I could wash my face because of a heavy oil/ greasy feeling. This actually was a nice light oil that felt very nourishing and the next day my skin was very moisturized and felt so smooth! It left me with a radiant sheen that only complimented my makeup application! This is a MUST for the winter or drier seasons/ regions! It really quenched my skin's thirst without overdoing it. Ingredient features and benefits include: Damask Rose Otto from the Valley of Roses in Bulgaria, organic Argan oil from Essaouria in Morocco and Rose Hip oil, renowned for its scar-diminishing properties. Essential vitamins, anti-oxidants and fatty-acids intensely hydrate skin, help stimulate skin cell rejuvenation and increase cell regeneration. www.bodhi.uk.com
4) eos: Smooth Sphere Lip Balm - Breast Cancer Awareness 2-Pack gives 100% of net profits will be donated to support breast cancer research! *applause*
I am ADDICTED to these cute little balms! I make sure that I keep one at home and one on my desk in the office! I was freaked out at first by the shape, thinking it that if I couldn't fit it in my pocket then it wasn't cool. BUT, as I gave it a chance my mind changed, as it has oh so many times in the years I have been testing products, hah. The round shape fit around my lips perfectly and applies do smoothly that I like to just apply it by habit when I don't even need to add more! The (limited edition) flavors of Fresh Watermelon and Strawberry Sorbet are mouth-watering delightful! The 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free, formulas for both are packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil provide long lasting moisture for sensationally soft and smooth lips. I am seeing these more and more among my friends and I think it is a trend that will not fade out :) I need to get more flavors! www.evolutionofsmooth.com
Availability: From September through November at Ulta, Drugstore.com and EvolutionOfSmooth.com
5) Shiseido: Lacquer Rouge in Diva is showing support by donating $5.00 to Cosmetic Executive Women's Cancer and Careers Foundation ( www.cancerandcareers.org) for every Lacquer Rouge in VI418 Diva sold!
My first thought when I tried this was , "Why am I just finding out about this product NOW?!". I absolutely loved how it applies like a lip gloss but looks like a lipstick! It's brilliant and gorgeous! The color is so vibrant and not overly glossed or shiny, which is nice! I prefer this type of lipstick application over the traditional stick because it seals better and is easy to travel with and just so much easier and more accurate to apply. I found another new obsession :) I can not speak anymore highly of this. It feels so light and comfortable on and never looked or felt drying! I hope they ner discontiue this product, a beauty junkie's worst fear, hah. www.shiseido.com
6) Survival Straps - Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelets are all made in America and a portion of the proceeds go to the “26.2 with Donna” (www.breastcancermarathon.com) to help fund breast cancer research and care.
The Survival Strap brand is already a company I am aware of and love because of the military products and support they have. Being a veteran myself I hold this company close to my heart and even more so now that they have expanded and create products for the awareness of all sort of nonprofits and issues we face in our society and environments. These bracelets are built rugged and to last! They are perfectly put together with care and reflect support for something you feel strongly for. What's not to love about these??? www.survivalstraps.com
Those are my amazing faves for Breast Cancer Awareness products that give back and show support to research and recovery efforts. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be sure you buy products direct from the company so the proceeds can be taken from the sale and donated!!!!!!!!!! It is SO important that if you feel passionately about giving for a cause that you do so with direct purchases!
Thank you :)
Until next time...Keep On Being Beautiful You!
