Estee Lauder for Breast Cancer Month Awareness

For the next week or so I will be highlighting many of the products now available with donations/proceeds going to Breast Cancer Charities and Research Foundations. As I am sure you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I lost a beloved grandmother to the disease many years ago, so am happy to help support anything that may help eradicate this hideous disease. Total Beauty also plans a month long campaign of which I will be part of. More to come later on that.

There has been some controversy in the past over which organizations were donating how much to whom,and where the money went etc. It is obviously up to you whether or not to support by buying these items , but I can tell you that the Estee Lauder companies are very dedicated to the cause and all proceeds go directly to research. My take is, if it's something you have been wanting( say the Jo Malone Red Roses cologne, gorgeous stuff), or if it's time to stock up on a product you always use ( Like Dramatically Diffferent Clinique, which my mom has used for at least 20 years), then why not buy it now? Many of the products have a specific dollar amount from each one sold that will be donated so you know exactly whats what. These are highlighted here. I like knowing what the exact donation is myself, and had a feeling you might too.

Today features many of the Lauder companies offerings , many of which make great gifts. I already have the lipstick set picked out for an aunt. EL donates to the BRCF which was founded by Evelyn Lauder.

-Aveda Hand Relief $ 21.00, $ 4.00 from each donated

-Bumble and Bumble Classic Hairspray $ 11.00, $ 1.00 from each donated

-Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion 6.7 0z $ 35.00, $ 10.00 from each donated

-Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in Ribbon Pink $ 16.50, $ 10.00 from each donated ( this is a pretty pink and one of the best for large donation vs. sale price)

-Darphin Predermine Wrinkle Corrective Serum $ 205.00, $ 20.00 from each donated

-Ojon Revitalizing Mist $ 26.00, 20 % of sales from October donated
