1 in 8 women will fight breast cancer in her lifetime, and all of us have known someone—a mother, a grandmother, a friend, a sister—affected by the disease.  What better way to support your fellow women then with one of these beauty products, available for limited editions this October during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

Looking for a way to show your support where everyone can see it?  Try your fingernails.  If you’re going to get them manicured (or paint them yourself) pick up some pink polish and let your hands do the talking.

Komen for the Cure®.  Pick up a bottle at your local professional beauty supply store during October 2011 for $8.50. Each bottle of has a special pink-ribbon tag and pink cap wrap to call attention to breast cancer awareness.

Or test out Essie’s award winning formula and paint on this pale pink that will look great year round. Essie will donate a portion of the profits to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Essie in Raise Awareness, $8 at professional beauty supply stores.

During dry winter months, keep your lips moist with La Mer’s limited edition La Mer The Lip Balm.  Most of us can’t afford to slather the cream on our faces, but if you want a little something from the company, every $10 per Pink Ribbon Lip Balm sold during the month of October will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation with a maximum donation of $30,000.
