October marks that time of year where our beauty counters get a little more pink for a great cause: Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
While many people don’t need an excuse to stock up on their cult-favorite creams or lipstick, there is nothing more motivating than giving back. That’s why each year, makeup, hair, and skincare brands alike all partner with various charities and initiatives to raise awareness and fund research to one day find a cure for breast cancer.
So if you’re in the mood to do a little shopping in October, we’re sharing all our favorite beauty buys for the month with you. Each product is sure to deliver quality results, with profits going to an important cause.
