Our 10 favourite pink products for breast cancer

One of the things we love about the beauty world is how lovely and supportive everyone is. Just look at how many fantastic beauty brands are donating to charity for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. From the £4.99 collapsabottle to the £99 Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, there’s a huge range of products out there that you can buy this month for even more of a feelgood factor.

And as it’s Breast Cancer AWARENESS month and not just shopping month… we should remind you to check your boobs for lumps or anything unusual.

Monster iSport Intensity In-Ear headphones

If like us you have to be dragged out of bed for a run or gym session, you’ll probably find that music is the best way to distract yourself. These in-ear headphones from Monster are perfect, and not just because £5 from every pair sold goes to Breast Cancer Care. They’re comfortable, sweat-resistant and let enough outside noise in that you can still hear traffic as you run – though on the downside, you can also hear the catcalls of any builders you run past. But they’re not to know that.
