Pink Ribbon Products for Breast Cancer Awareness 2013

October marks the start of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and as always, there are an increasing number of companies that bring out pink products, and donate a large percentage of the proceeds of their sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). This is such a great cause, so I always make sure to stock up on certain products during October – I remember one year when pink M&Ms were released, but I am unfortunately yet to see those in the shops, which is such a shame as it did give me a guilt free reason to stock up on M&Ms! Anyway, here are some of the special and limited edition products that are available;

Sukin Limited Edition Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil – RRP: $19.95 (25ml), $32.95 (50ml)

Check out this cute pink bottle of rose hip oil from Sukin. I think everyone by now as discovered the benefits of rosehip oil, and I absolutely love this cheap but efficient version from Sukin – if you have missed my review, you can see it here. The rosehip oil can be used to soothe skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea and assists in skin renewal to help maintain healthy skin. The rose hip oil features rosa eglanteria seed oil to soothe, soften and hydrate skin, feeding the skin essential vitamins and nutrients to promote radiance. The pink packaging with the ribbon design supports the McGrath foundation.

ModelCo & Ecoya Limited Edition Metro Jar – RRP: $29.95

I love it when my house smells nice, and with two large dogs living inside, nothing is better at freshening up the smell, thank a gorgeous scented candle. The ModelCo & Ecoya Limited Edition Metro Jar is a soy wax candle that is scented with fragrant notes of sweet pea and jasmine. Both brands have combined in a bid to raise awareness and funds for The National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Goldwell Super Hold Hair Lacquer – RRP: $7.95

With my long hair, one of the styling products I always use is hairspray to control those flyaway hairs around the face, and one of my go-to brands is Goldwell. The Goldwell Super Hold Hair Lacquer provides mega hold to give lasting control and manageability to any hairstyle. The hair lacquer features a micro-fine spray system that delivers hold effects evenly over the hair. It has a hold factor eight and brushes out easily. The packaging is pink to support the McGrath foundation.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum II – RRP: $95 (30ml), $140 (50ml)

This serum from Estee Lauder has long been a favourite of mine, and now an improved version recently been launched – the Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is a facial serum that supports the natural night-time anti-ageing purification process. The silky serum slows down the look of premature ageing, dramatically reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and significantly improves the appearance of skin radiance and evenness of skin tone. The Night Repair Serum features a Pink Ribbon Bracelet charm in support of the McGrath Foundation.

Clinique Pink with a Purpose – RRP: $36

I have long had a love affair with the Clinique Almost Lipsticks –especially in the colour Black Honey, which was discontinued at some stage, but luckily it was relaunched due to popular demand. The Clinique Pink with a Purpose is a limited edition lipstick and cosmetic case. The comes with an Almost Lipstick in the limited edition shade in Pink Ribbon Honey, and which is housed in a pin cosmetic carrying pouch. $5 from every sale of this Almost Lipstick goes towards The National Breast Cancer Foundation while supplies last.

Bobbi Brown Pink Blush Set – RRP: $85


How gorgeous is this pink blush set from Bobbi Brown – it will be sure to add some glow to those pale winter cheeks! The Bobbi Brown’s Pink Blush set has been designed to introduce Breast Cancer Awareness. The limited edition blush set contains a Pink Blush and Brush. 20 per cent of sales go to the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Jane Iredale Compact – RRP: $36

I have recently fallen for the amazing makeup from Jane Iredale, and now the limited edition Bright Future compact has been launched.  The mirrored compact features five timeless favourite eye shadow shades from the PurePressed range (Peach Sherbet, Pink Glaze, Red Carpet, Pink Cloud, and Dusk) along with a travel-sized eye shadow brush, for on-the-go application and touch ups. It comes with a cute small chain attached to the compact set which attaches the brush. Jane Iredale Australia will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation

So there you have it, my top picks for amazing products that at the same time support a fantastic cause. Do you plan to support this great cause by buying any of these products?
