Here’s how to do your bit.
Breast Cancer Awareness month is upon us, and it’s an important period of time every year. Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK, and one in eight women will be diagnosed with it in their lifetime. But in recent years, more and more people are recovering from the illness, usually due to early detection. The October campaign aims to encourage people to talk about Breast Cancer, be aware of potential symptoms, and to cheek for any abnormalities. These fashion and beauty buys to support Breast Cancer Awareness month also help to channel money into the causes that are doing life-saving work around Breast Cancer.
Around this time of year, some brands create special products for Breast Cancer Awareness month that are usually one-offs, and donate a big chunk of their profits to charity. Others tend to instead create limited edition versions of their bestsellers or contribute by donating a flat-rate to their chosen charity. This year, many of the offerings are donating to important charities such as CoppaFeel and Breast Cancer Now. These charities fund crucial research, as well as supporting men and women who have been diagnosed with the illness.
You can do your bit by picking up one of the below, and always remember to check your breasts regularly — this guide by CoppaFeel makes it easy to know how.
50% of all proceeds from this product will go towards support, awareness and research into secondary breast cancer. It is an important one for BBB London, whose Managing Director Taj Giles was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year and due to chemotherapy, lost the hair on her eyebrows. This product aims to help women get back their brow confidence, whatever their situation.

For each Peony & Blush Suede Cologne sold in the UK in 2020, Jo Malone London will donate £20 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). This gorgeous scent is worth having for that reason alone, but it’s also worth noting that it smells incredible; super romantic and heady. A dream.
Not only is this T-shirt super cool to look at and will fit into any wardrobe like a dream, it also has a brilliantly charitable campaign behind it. 50% of each tee sold will be donated to CoppaFeel, with Missoma making a pledge to donate £5000 at a minimum.
The Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Shampoo and Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Conditioner were created for people who are undergoing treatment for cancer, as is gentle enough to use on their scalp. For every purchase of the shampoo and conditioner (£20 each), 50p is donated to Look Good Feel Better year-round, not just in October.
Hair brand Boucleme will be making a £5000 donation to CoppaFeel to support their lifesaving work. The cream is a go-to for those with curls, promising to moisturise curls, reduce frizz, and protect.
Ukrainian sleepwear brand Sleeper may be on the pricer side, but their pieces are beautiful and they support charitable foundations.

Trust me, I am fully aware that this stuff seems super pricey. But it is genuinely the only eyelash product I have ever used that *works*. My lashes are longer than they’ve ever been!
