Need an excuse to nab a few new beauty goods? These six standouts not only work wonders, but they also give back to breast cancer awareness charities.
Like all of the cult-favorite wet brushes, this one has super fine, strong, and flexible bristles to glide through knots gently. Be happy knowing you’ll have more good hair days and knowing that 20 percent of the profits go toward breast cancer research.

Paint the town (and your nails) pink with Londontown Lakur polishes during the month of October, and 50 percent of the proceeds will go to the Young Survival Coalition (YSC), which provides support and health information for women under the age of 40 with breast cancer.

Look polished in seconds with a swipe of one of these pink shades from Shiseido. With each purchase of Rouge Rouge in Crime of Passion (RD311), Murrey (RRD305), or Burning Up (RD310), Shiseido will donate $5 to Cancer and Careers. The organization offers support to people with cancer who are trying to manage their cancer and their career.

Packed full of aloe, lemon juice, and calendula, this lightweight mist offers a refreshing burst of hydration for tired skin.
