October is the official month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. Though this cause deserves year-round attention, in October, we get to focus on shedding some light on important matters such as early detection and the need for continuous research. In light of this need, many brands have released special products for BCA month with the proceeds benefitting organizations that help breast cancer survivors, breast cancer research, and early detection of the disease. If you'd like to help support this cause by shopping for beauty items you know and love, read ahead for my list of pink-friendly buys. Here's to finding a cure - fast.
