Breast cancer is currently
the most common form of cancer in the UK, with post-menopausal women over the
age of 50 most at risk. October marks Breast Cancer Awareness month and to
support the lifesaving research into cures, leading beauty brands like Jo
Malone, Elemis and ghd have all released special limited edition products, all
of which donate a certain % of the cost to breast cancer charities. Here are
8) Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne, £86 for 100ml
If you’re a Jo Malone novice looking to try your first fragrance, we can’t recommend this one enough. Made from a complex blend of seven of the world’s highest quality roses, it’s floral and light enough for long summer days but deep enough for date nights too. Plus, £20 from each bottle goes straight to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Dehydrated complexions will love this. Apply before you go to bed and the avocado and apricot oil will get to work overnight and you’ll wake in the morning with skin that’s plump and ready to go. £4 from each mask goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
