A Breast Cancer and Beauty Collaboration

You may have noticed that your favourite beauty brands have turned decidedly pink this month as October marks the launch of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

One of my favourite charities, CoppaFeel!, have teamed up with Birchbox this month to bring you tips and advice on how to spot any changes in your breasts. Atop an educational twist, the products are perhaps the best I’ve seen in months from my monthly beauty instalment. This is a box you’ll want to get your hands on! Here are my 3 top picks from the line up…

1. Pixi by Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm
Regular readers will know how much I LOVE Pixi, the little LA brand which nests itself just off Carnaby St in London. They excel at nourishing products for giving plump, glowy skin and gorgeous illuminated silhouettes. These lip balms are just the thing to have in your handbag as the autumn dawns.

2. RMK Eyeshadow
Japan’s number one skincare brand, RMK, is only available in the UK and it is such a brilliant range. Their eyeshadows are really pigmented but they’re also quite velvety and blend really easily. Try one of these and you’ll want everything else from the range.

3. Meaningful Beauty Glowing Serum
Cindy Crawford has created this brand in collaboration with Dr. Sebagh so you know it’s going to be good – one of the most beautiful supermodels meets one of the ultimate skin experts. Insert ‘will it make me look like Cindy’ joke here…

Alongside a strong product line-up, a cute twist is that Birchbox have replaced their usual drawstring bag in favour of a compact baby pink zip up bag. All in all it’s a really lovely selection.

Do your bit to support the cause by using social media. When you get your Birchbox and post a picture to Instagram or Twitter using ‘I COPPED A FEEL! #CoppaBirchbox @CoppaFeelPeople @BirchboxUK’ Birchbox will donate £1 to the charity.

While we’re talking CoppaFeel, I’d strongly, strongly urge you to watch founder Kris Hallenga’s documentary, Dying to Live, when you have a moment. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll fall in love with her attitude. Click here for the link.
