Knock on wood, I’ve never been diagnosed with breast cancer, nor have any of my close friends and family members. That said, even though the number of cases have decreased over the years, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with some kind of invasive breast cancer in their life – a scary thought.
There are a number of charities that support Breast Cancer Awareness and aim to not only make people more aware of being proactive when it comes to monitoring for it, but to also raise money for research. Additionally, there are a ton of products out on the market that benefit cancer charities. Take a look at 5 of my picks to support the cause below in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month.
EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Gloss
A girl can never have enough lip gloss, which is why the 2-pack EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Gloss ($6.49) is not only the perfect investment for your beauty routine, but also an investment that helps support breast cancer research. The flavors included are also a win – strawberry and watermelon. Yum!

Tek Gear Running Shorts
Fitness is an important thing to keep up with – whether you’re an active gym member or even just go for a 20 minute walk each day. Kohl’s is a big supporter of charities – American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen being two big ones. These Tek Gear Running Shorts ($10) are not only great for self-motivation when it comes to exercising, but also an investment that benefits cancer charities.

Together in Pink Brush Collection
You can never have enough makeup brushes – and Sephora’s Together in Pink Brush Collection ($36) in all its pink glory, is a perfect purchase to support Breast Cancer Awareness and keep your makeup looking fab. This set includes 5 brushes and a makeup bag, especially great for when you’re on-the-go!

Sole Goddess Blister Protection
Every girl has experienced the pain of blisters from new (and even old) pairs of shoes. Sole Goddess ($18.50) is a product that’s supposed to help prevent blisters from forming, putting some of this blister protection balm on blister-prone spots before putting your shoes on. This is brilliant – definitely something I need to invest in! A portion of funds from purchasing this product will go toward Breast Cancer research during the month of October.

NFL Breast Cancer Awarenss
One of the biggest supporters of Breast Cancer Awareness is the NFL. During the month of October, we see all of the guys on the field sporting pink in honor of the cause. With over 1,079 products in the store supporting Breast Cancer Awareness, you can rock official NFL gear from your favorite team while showing your support for the cause as well.
