Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the philanthropic annual event where brands unveil a parade of pink products in aid of breast cancer charities.
But it’s not just about raising money. This year, the aim is to get women talking about breast checking and make them more knowledgeable about the signs and symptoms of the disease, which affects one in eight women in their lifetime.
That’s where the pink products come in. By purchasing one of these items during October, you’ll help to raise money for cancer charities.
From sub-£5/AED22.56 bargains to luxury picks, here are nine of the best breast cancer awareness beauty buys…
1. Elemis Limited Edition Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Supersize, AED700.00
