Beauty products that do good

Here are the things that tell us that October has officially arrived: the chill in the air that means you means you get to buy a new coat from Zara, the new autumnal shades of trees that make a cracking backdrop for an Insta pic and the masses of prettily packaged pink beauty products that line shop shelves in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Yes, October is the month that beauty brands jazz up some of their bestselling products in pink packaging all in the name of charity. With every purchase of one of these products, some of your money goes to helping those in need and funding research into the disease.

Here are our favourite offerings of 2017:

Margaret Dabbs Nail & Cuticle Serum, £12

This tube of nail and cuticle goodness is the perfect size to keep in your handbag for on-the-go application – work it into the nail whilst you’re on your commute. The combo of emu oil and tea tree oil soothes dry and flaky skin, meaning that your pricey manicure will always looks on point. 15% of all proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Care charity.

GHD Limited Edition Pink Blush GHD Platinum Styler and Roll Bag, £165

GHD’s award winning Platinum Styler now comes in a stunning blush pink, with a matching bag. It’s won awards, because it really is the best. You can straighten, curl and style all in the safe knowledge that its whizzy tri-zone technology will never damage your hair. £10 from each sale is donated to Breast Cancer Now.

Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Knockout Eyes Collection, £45

Wouldn’t it be marvellous if there were a kit out there that came with a great mascara, a brilliant eyeliner, a palette of perfectly complimentary eyeshadows and the ideal brush to blend them seamlessly together? Well this is that exact set. And it comes it a chic makeup bag. 20% goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel, £2.90

We’re obsessed with hand sanitizer in the Powder office – you can never have hands too clean in our opinion. Mercy Handy has teamed up with Coppafeel, the charity that encourages and teaches women to check their own boobs for abnormalities. We’re loving this bottle. 100% of all proceeds go to Coppafeel.

Elemis Limited Edition Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, £99

Whenever we get asked: ‘which moisturiser should I use on my dry and rough skin?’ we always recommend Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. It transforms skin in a matter of days and actually works on all skin types. This 100ml is worth £140, but you can get it for £99 and Elemis are pledging to donate £25,000 to Breast Cancer Care.

Whilst we're on all things pink, which fared better in the battle of the blushers?
