15 Things You Can Buy That Actually Support Breast Cancer Research


Before we hit Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Thanksgiving, and all the other holidays, we honor Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October. It's quite sad to think that every person reading this post right now knows someone or knows someone who knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer. Countless fundraisers, walks, runs, and everything in between have been created in an effort to support the research that goes toward finding a cure - and putting an end - to breast cancer.

If shopping is more your speed (hey, not everyone is up for running a 5K), there are plenty of brands that give back to the cause during this month.


13 products we love that support breast cancer research


Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer among women so, chances are, you know someone who has been affected by it. The entire month of October is dedicated to raising awareness and encouraging women to do self-checks or schedule their mammograms. After all, early detection is paramount.

Which means this month is a time that many companies and organizations work together to raise funds for breast cancer research. If you're already planning on shopping (or getting a head start on your holiday list) this is a great way to give back.

Uncompromising Women: Renata Helfman


Lipstick Angels is a unique non-profit dedicated to using the power of gentle beauty to transform, heal and benefit patients who are currently undergoing treatments such as chemotherapy. Renata Helfman, founder of Lipstick Angels, has a very similar story as Tata. As a makeup artist herself, Renata was inspired by the impact her grandmother's beauty routine had on preserving her self-identity while going through the harsh effects of treatment. The Lipstick Angel's services were then created to bring relief, education, and support for the whole person - mind, body, and soul. 

We were so inspired by her story, we decided to reach out to Renata to feature her in our series of Uncompromising Women. Read on to learn more about Renata's holistic skincare rituals and the vision behind this incredible organization.

Cosmetics And Chemotherapy: "Lipstick Angels" Bring Beauty Treatments To Cancer Patients


Kerri Stimson has always believed that, when done correctly, makeup is about revealing beauty, not concealing flaws.


It is a philosophy Stimson carries with her every time she enters a chemotherapy infusion center such as the Stanford Cancer Center, bringing free beauty treatments to cancer patients there.

"You are trying to show them how beautiful they are if they’ve lost sight of it," Stimson said.
