October, a.k.a. Breast Cancer Awareness Month, has officially arrived. We’re always impressed with the brands that contribute to the cause, and this year the participating products are better than ever. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for a lucky recipient in your life, we’ve rounded up our fave picks to support breast cancer research and awareness. —Jeanine Gordon
Canadian luxury beauty retailer Hali is donating 10 per cent of proceeds from sales of its ionic hairdryer and scrunchie set ($300) to Rethink Young Women’s Network. We love the pretty pink hue that has us eager to master the perfect blowout at home.
Lohn is known for natural and non-toxic candles and this pink version is one to stock up on, whether it’s for a hostess gift or just to spoil yourself. The Rise Candle ($40) is made up of a coconut and soy wax blend and breathes an aroma of pink grapefruit, cedar wood, palmarosa, patchouli and basil into any room. Best: $20 from the sale of each candle goes to Rethink Breast Cancer.
Peloton Apparel fans can now carry their post-spin high with them wherever they go with the Kitchen Sink Tote ($200). This tote is roomy enough to carry your essentials, from sweaty gym clothes to your laptop, with 20 per cent of proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
If you don’t already own a piece of ultra-popular rose gold jewelry, now’s your chance to do a little shopping and feel good about your purchase. We love the set of two Rose Gold Wavy Bangles ($88) from Biko that are chic enough to stand on their own or join your arm party. Bonus: 20 per cent of this pretty purchase goes to Rethink Breast Cancer.
Re-named after the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, (who owns several of this piece in several colours) the cult-favorite Duchess blazer from Smythe ($695) is a closet must-have. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s been reinvented in Rethink Pink—a rosy shade that pairs perfectly with jeans or elevates your Zoom look when working from home. $50 from the sale of each blazer goes to Rethink Breast Cancer.
Jeweler David Yurman has announced its 12th annual partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation with a range of styles, including a Renaissance Cable Bracelet in aluminum and pink acrylic and a Cable Classic Rose Candle—the brand will donate 20 per cent of the purchase price from these pieces to BCRF through the month of October. Our fave piece though: this signature David Yurman Cable Bracelet ($25) that’s available, for the first time ever, in pink rubber, with 100 per cent of net profits benefiting BCRF.
