ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Charity work in the form of beauty products
October is the month dedicated to raising awareness for Breast Cancer and the charities that raise money to fund the research and care required. Nearly 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK each year, making it one of the most important causes in the country. With the survival rate increasing each year, all of us need to get behind the charities involved so women no longer have to face this cruel disease. To mark the month, many companies are donating part of their profits made on selected products to save lives. Here’s a round up of our favourite beauty products dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness…
