Beauty Products to Buy This Month For BCA

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it's a great time to show support to all those with breast cancer. We've found a few beauty brands that are putting out limited edition products with a portion of the products' proceeds being donated to cancer research and other initiatives that benefit women with breast cancer. Here, some of our favorite products that will make you feel and look good.

W!NK is working with  MB Beach Buds  which helps underinsured women and un-insured women afford the mammograms they need to detect breast cancer.

Blue Lagoon Iceland Rejuvenating Lip Balm ($40) - This  is an enriched balm with patented blue lagoon algae and geothermal sea water that is going to become your absolute go-to lip treatment for the winter! And this month it's housed in pink packaging with a portion of proceeds going to the Icelandic Cancer Society.

Jane Iredale Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($28) - Who doesn't love a two in one product that actually works? Plus, all profits from the sales of this go to Look Good Feel Better.

Arcona Triad Pads ($38) - This luxe little face treatment is one that you can feel really good about getting. In October, 25 percent of every sale of these cranberry toner infused pads goes to Cancer and Careers.

GHD Ink on Pink Gold Styler ($250) - Quite possibly the best flatiron ever made... The brand hopes to raise $1 million for breast cancer charities and will be raising awareness with the limited-edition iron, designed by mastectomy tattoo artist David Allen. Check out "My Tattoo, My Story."

IT Brushes For ULTA Love is the Foundation Brush ($30) - We love this brush so much! For every purchase of the heart-shaped brush, one will be donated to a woman with cancer through Look Good Feel Better.

ELEMIS Limited Edition in Support of The Pink Agenda

ELEMIS’ No.1 cleanser just turned Rose in support of The Pink Agenda. Featuring an exclusive design by Lily and Lionel, This deep cleansing balm with delicate English Rose dissolves makeup, daily grime and pollutants. ELEMIS is proud to be supporting The Pink Agenda. Regardless of the sales of this limited edition product, $25,000 will go to The Pink Agenda.

“The Pink Agenda is committed to raising money for breast cancer research and care. We are fortunate to be a partner of Elemis, a brand that believes in our mission and shares our pledge for progress. This support will help us fund the groundbreaking research necessary to save lives and make breast cancer history.” –Lucretia Gilbert, Executive Director, The Pink Agenda.

ELEMIS collaborated with iconic British fashion house, Lily and Lionel, on the design of the limited edition jar and packaging. Founder and Creative Director, Alice Stone had this to say about the collaboration, “Partnering with ELEMIS was perfect, because both our brands are about integrity and authenticity.” Breast cancer awareness is a cause that is close to Alice’s heart. “Sadly, breast cancer affects so many people. I don’t think you find anyone whose nearest and dearest haven’t been affected by it. In my case, I’ve experienced the difficulties through family friends. I’m honored to help contribute to the cause.”

Alice’s unique design was inspired by natural elements, like vegetables and flowers. “We created the print by dipping celery in ink and then stamping it into a rose pattern. There were all these incredible shapes, and we pared them down into a monochromatic color palette for a simple, classic and feminine design.” Fashion is in my blood. Lily and Lionel is actually named after my maternal grandparents, who both worked in fashion. Partnering with ELEMIS was the perfect fit, because both our brands are about integrity and authenticity. I wanted to bring the spirit of Lily and Lionel to the print design of the ELEMIS bags. I love the energy of this print. It’s both bohemian and classic. If this print were a person it would just jump off the page and start talking to you.

ELEMIS Limited Edition Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm Supersize ($99) is available online at ELEMIS and select retail locations.

Ulta Beauty's Cut-A-Thon For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Visit THE SALON at ULTA Beauty to receive one of this fall's standout haircuts:

"Invisible Layers" Haircut
The stylist at the salons at ULTA Beauty have a secret to adding volume to long hair without cutting lots of visible layers.  With special cutting techniques, layers are added to the haircut to provide hidden movement.  Hair is left long enough to style in an updo but it has added volume when worn long. This cut works best for shoulder length hair and longer.

"Convertible Color" Haircut
Have highlighting that you want to show off? The convertible color haircut is worn short at the nape, and longer on top, allowing for a middle or side part, or a slick look with hair worn straight back with the help of some hair gel.  Each style change shows off different highlights – the perfect cut for those who like short hair but want the versatility to change their look.

"Shattered" Haircut
The epitome of textured movement, the shattered haircut is a dramatic combination of layers that creates a sexy, tousled look.   The disconnected layers in this cut can work on any length of hair to produce an of-the-moment messy, yet stylish, appearance.
