Lavanila The Healthy Underarm Detox Mask


Whether you want to detoxify your underarms or you’re looking to jumpstart a natural routine, this underarm mask is the first of its kind and is super refreshing. Swipe it on five to ten minutes before hopping in the shower (you don’t have to hold your arms up the whole time—keep on as normal), then rinse it off in the shower. A portion of the proceeds will help benefit breast cancer awareness. 

To buy: $26; sephora.com.

Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment Duo


Pucker up for this pair of lip treatments. One goes on clear while the other has a light rose tint, but both are made with fair trade coconut oil and lemon butter that smooth right into lips—perfect for the cold weather to come. Plus, 100 percent of the net profits (up to $25,000) from the sale of this set will benefit Bright Pink for breast health education programs.

To buy: $32; kiehls.com.

Paddywax Rosewood + Patchouli


This will instantly make your abode smell like a cozy cabin in Colorado the instant you light it. Plus, we love that it comes with a lid (read: no smoke everywhere when you blow it out) that can double as a catchall vessel after the wax is gone. During the month of October, 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale of this candle will be donated to MakingStrides/American Cancer Society.

To buy: $28; paddywax.com.
