ChapStick Pink Packs for the Cure

This one is on my must buy pink products list!

Chapstick Pink Pack
ChapStick is donating $125,000 this year to the Susan G. Komen For a Cure Foundation with proceeds from its ChapStick Susan G. Komen for the Cure Pink Packs. Here is the lowdown:

Made from the same ingredients found in ChapStick Moisturizer, the ChapStick Susan G. Komen for the Cure Pink Pack includes three tubes of lip balm that:

  • Is designed to keep lips looking and feeling soft and healthy with a blend of 10 protective moisturizers
  • Includes Aloe and Vitamin E
  •  Features SPF 15 to protect lips from the sun’s harmful rays

ChapStick Pink Pack is available at food, drug and mass merchandise stores throughout the U.S. during the month of October.

Look for it at around $3.99. Personally, I can’t resist a pink lip balm tube with SPF 15!

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Beauty Blog Network Comments For a Cure

Here it is, October 1st, which means that a busy month is ahead. During October, companies brand pink products with a portion of the proceeds going to breast cancer research.This year, the Beauty Blog Network is also reviving its popular Comments for a Cure promotion and it has partnered with the Estee Lauder Company to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.Throughout the month, look for Network blogs to pledge donations to various cancer research charities based on your comments. For more, visit the Beauty Blog Network Breast Cancer Awareness Page.

Estee Lauder October Breast Cacner Awareness

Beauty and Fashion Tech and Girl Gloss will be taking part, with a donation going to the Walter Payton Cancer Fund. I will donate $1 for each comment made between October 13 and 15 up to a total of $50. Readers can also leave their own donation, using the chipin widget in the right sidebar.

Want more choices? Visit some of the other member blogs participating in Comments for a Cure.  Both sites will also be listing or reviewing pink products throughout October.Keep in mind that while buying pink products is fun, a direct donation is still the best way to assure that the entirety of your funds goes to cancer research and support!

A few other things to watch for during October from members of the Beauty Blog Network:

  • Reader giveaways of pink products on blogs from the Beauty Blog Network and from Total Beauty
  • Chipin widgets on sites that allow you to add your own direct donation to a variety of causes
  • Many product reviews of Pink items on network blogs

October is a great time to browse all of the beauty blogs! Want to see other posts? Look in the loser right sidebar for the Beauty Blog Network Widget featuring Breast Cancer Awareness posts from network members!

October is the month of pink and several companies have pink ribbon lip products this year.

Among them, Avon has a pink ribbon lip balm: The Breast Cancer Crusade Lip Balm with SPF 15.

Estee Lauder has a Pure Color Chrystal Gloss. This was sold out online at the time of writing, but check the store counters for it.

One that I really want is Power Kiss from Duwop.

Keep in mind that perhaps the best way to support breast cancer research is to make a direct donation yourself to the charity of your choice. For more on October pinkness, including some links about a bit of controversy, head over to Beauty and Fashion Tech.
