Are you thinking pink? After all, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and while it’s important to support the cause year-round, a slew of retailers are currently offering great items—many surrounding the pink ribbon associated with the cancer that, according to the Susan G. Komen organization, will see an estimated 232,670 new cases in U.S. women this year alone. We rounded up seven products, from lip gloss to yoga mats, that not only make you look and feel good, but do good, too.
Lip gloss for a cause? Oh, we’re in. This set of four pink shimmery shades (Pretty Pink Sheer, Pink Tulle High Shimmer, Bright Lilacs and Soiree Pink Shimmer) will make your lips look great and you’ll smile over the fact that Bobbi Brown will donate $12 of each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
