8 Beauty Products to Buy in October
In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we rounded up some terrific (and very pink!) new beauty products that support the cause
And let's not even get into the individual days that are dedicated to some cause or another: Public Sleeping Day (February 28) and Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19) are two of the most random that come to mind.
With all the silly holidays out there, it's hard to know which ones should be taken seriously and which to support with your time or hard-earned cash. One that's a no-brainer is October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCA) -- a cause and initiative that we should all buy into (literally).
Skip ahead to see the best beauty products for October 2012.
Here's why: One in eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime (that's roughly 12 percent of women). And last year, thanks to research and advances made through various funding efforts, there were more than 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
These scary numbers are just part of the reason why so many of the beauty products hitting shelves in October are tied to BCA. And, it's about a lot more than pink labels or packaging -- each one directly supports breast cancer charities. So when you buy Coach's newest lip gloss set or Avon's pink nail polish, you're also supporting an incredibly worthwhile cause. Keep reading to see our BCA beauty products guide and feel good knowing that your splurge is justified.
