Pink Beauty for Breast Cancer
Here at Look Fantastic Beauty HQ this week, we are dedicating our blog to Breast Cancer Awareness in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month this October. Look Fantastic are extremely proud to support Look Good Feel Better, a brand dedicated to helping women undergoing chemotherapy treatment; helping them cope with the disease by making them look and feel fantastic! Please read more about the brand and what they do here! There are also various other brands across our site which donate to Breast Cancer charities, helping to make a difference to the many women affected by this horrible disease; these include Elemis, Bourjois and Deborah Lippmann, as outlined below.
2015 Statistics and Facts
Each year, close to 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer across the UK – this is the equivalent of one person every 10 minutes.
In their lifetime, it is estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer.
Women are not solely affected by breast cancer; men can also develop the disease with approximately 400 diagnosed every year.
More than 8 out of 10 people survive breast cancer beyond 5 years – let’s help make this figure higher by supporting the Breast Cancer Care charity (learn more about the charity here), and supporting brands who donate to the charity such as Look Good Feel Better, Elemis and Bourjois.
Here at Look Fantastic, we are extremely proud to work with brands that support Breast Cancer Awareness. Each pink product donates to the various breast cancer charities; painting their product pink so you can clearly identify which product donates to the cause.
Here at Look Fantastic Beauty HQ, we are absolutely delighted that this product has been painted pink as it is one of our favourites, and is always in our beauty bags! Each and every year, Elemis donate £10,000 annually to Breast Cancer Care, with the proceeds from this product helping towards that amount. The energising balm helps to brighten skin tone, evening out your complexion to reveal a healthy and luminous complexion. With added nutrients and vitamins, the flash balm can be used as a daily moisturiser for dry skin, a make-up primer for an even make-up application or as quick face mask to add radiance before a big event!
The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick is available in a range of colours which all support Breast Cancer Care. Costing £8.99, each sale of every lipstick generates a £1 donation to the charity to help support women affected by breast cancer. With a bold colour and matte finish, the Bourjois lipstick is perfect for the upcoming party season! Infused with a blend of evanescent oils, the lipstick helps to moisturise your lips leaving them super soft and super kissable!
Deborah describes this nail polish as a shade close to her heart as 10% of the proceeds generated from each sale benefit the Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach California; helping women undergoing breast cancer treatment. Enriched with Biotin which helps to strengthen nails, alongside Green Tea Extract and Aucoumea; helping to keep nails healthy and strong. Containing no Formaldehyde, Toluene or DBP, the polish is extremely healthy for nails, whilst providing a long-lasting and high-shine colour – just perfect!
