From pretty pumps to a surprisingly chic, pink toothbrush, TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas shares her top picks in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Give back beauty
Jane Iredale's Smell the Roses Hydration Spray is a meaningful find this October for several reasons. Not only will 100% of the profits from sales be given to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization that supports survivors, but the product itself, a calming rose-scented mist, is a great reminder to pause and be thankful for each moment ($29, JaneIredale.com).
Next up, Suki's Ultra-Protect Body Balm, which also passes 100% of proceeds forward to the charitable foundation Breast Cancer Action. The multipurpose healing balm is said to provide moisture, relief from eczema and sooth cracked skin. According to the brand, the formula is also safe for women who have or are recovering from cancer, utilizing organic ingredients and essential oils ($27.95, sukiskincare.com).
And finally, Supersmile's Pink Diamond toothbrushes have been on my buzz radar because they're designed to look chic on the sink top and they stand up vertically (meaning your toothbrush dries quicker and stays cleaner). But this month, Supersmile plans to give 75% of sales on the toothbrush to breast cancer awareness, so now's a great time to splurge on one. And bonus! October also happens to be National Dental Hygiene Month ($15, supersmile.com).
When it comes to clothes, a few heavy hitters have come together in support of breast cancer research. Rag & Bone, Saks Fifth Avenue and cast members from Saturday Night Live have teamed up to create the Key to the Cure tee, a unisex style that gives 100% of profits to the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research fund. Look for the tee on the likes of Ana Gasteyer and Will Ferrell in an upcoming BCA campaign (saksfifthavenue.com).
For shoe shoppers and bag addicts, be sure to check out JustFab's charitable offerings in the month of October as well. The company will be giving 100% of profits from their pink "Lissa" platform pump and "Bon Bon" bow clutch to Susan G. Komen of Orange County for the Cure. A donation to BCA and stilettos: sounds like a win win ($39.95, justfab.com).
