Many of y’all may not know that our grandma suffered from breast cancer, and so now, it is very close to our hearts. We have walked in several Race For The Cures, and love getting to give back or donate in any way we can. What better way to do that than shopping for yourself (or someone else), while also donating to a great cause?! We wanted to round up our favorite pink products that are not only adorable, but also donate part of their proceeds to help breast cancer research and prevention!
This Estée Lauder makeup (#6) set is a great travel kit, and what is even better, is that 100% of the suggested retail price (not just the profits) of the palette are being donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation from September 2017 through June 2018.
Love a good sports bra! (#12) This one offers medium support and coverage and twelve percent of sales from this bra will be donated to Recovery on Water (ROW), an organization and rowing team that empowers women with breast cancer to connect with other survivors and “become active in their recovery.”
This Sigma flat kabuki brush (#14) is perfect for applying foundation or bb cream. It has super soft bristles and twenty percent of proceeds from this brush will go to Bright Pink, a nonprofit organization dedicated to breast and ovarian cancer prevention and early-detection education for young women.
This serum from Estée Lauder‘s (#11) will leave your face looking and feeling radiant and nourished. Like the palette mentioned previously, Estée Lauder will donate 20% of the suggested retail price to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation from September 2017 through June 2018.
We are major fans of anything Bobbi Brown. This powder (#7) can be used as a blush or or all-over bronzing shimmer to keep your glow lasting all day. For every purchase of the set, $11 will be donated to the BCRF.
We use our S’well bottles ALL of the time. This bikini pink version (#3) is so fun and keeps your drinks hot or cold. During the month of October, 20% of the purchase price for this color will go to the BCRF.
We actually tried these GoMacro bars (#1) a while back and loved the taste of them! You can purchase them individually or by the tray, but either way, 10% of all sales from the Sunny Uplift bars will go to the Keep a Breast Foundation, which is dedicated to educating and empowering young people with prevention resources through large-scale campaigns like I Heart Boobies (of silicone bracelet fame).
We don’t own a pair of these APL sneakers yet (#5), but we will be buying some of these now! After the founders of APL lost their grandmother to breast cancer, they made it part of their company’s mission to serve others battling the disease. For each pair sold, the brand will donate 20% of the retail price for this edition of their incredibly comfortable and functional Phantom sneakers to the Women’s Cancer Research Fund.
Kendra Scott has been a major jewelry fave of ours since college. These earrings (#9) and this light pink nail polish (#4) are both super fun gifts! 20% of the purchase price of your order goes to BCRF.

We also wanted to share some tips on preventing breast cancer with the help of Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We are only 26 and have both gotten mammograms, so it is never too early!
1. BCRF advises that keeping your weight in check and staying physically active are two important aspects of prevention. Speak to your doctor about what a “healthy weight” looks and feels like to you, and make an exercise plan that works for your body and schedule.
2. Avoid drinking too much alcohol, and don’t smoke! Smoking comes with additional risks of cancer, but both of these things can contribute to weakening your immune system.
3. Find out your family history and talk to your doctor about when you should be getting regular screenings. If you have a history of breast cancer, your doctor may want to have you checked more frequently or want to start your checkups at a younger age.
4. Get familiar with your own body and know your “normal” so that when you give yourself at-home exams, you’re aware of any new bumps, lumps, or signs.
