Vintage Rose Rabbit And Cabbages Make-up Bag, 22, Breast Cancer Care

Founded in 1985, the initiative has gone from strength to strength, raising more than £50m in total.

This year, there’s another fantastic line-up of pampering goodies, from £1 bathing bargains to luxurious designer collaborations.

Here’s our pick of the pink treats...

4. Aveda Limited Edition Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme, 21

1. Palmolive Gourmet Strawberry Touch Body Butter Shower Cream, £1.50, Asda

Pick up a bottle of this sweetly-scented shower cream in Asda and 10p will be donated to Tickled Pink, the supermarket’s breast cancer charity initiative.

2. Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Shampoo, £19

For every full-size bottle of No Scent No Colour Shampoo or Conditioner sold, 50p will go to cancer charity Look Good Feel Better, while 25p is donated from mini bottles – and that’s all year round, not just October.

3. Vintage Rose Rabbit And Cabbages Make-up Bag, £22, Breast Cancer Care

All the profits from this cute cabbage and bunny cosmetics pouch (pictured) will go to Breast Cancer Care.

4. Aveda Limited Edition Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme, £21

Aveda’s much-loved Hand Relief cream returns for 2018, with around £4 from each tube sold donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

5. Bobbi Brown Pinks with Purpose Lip Colour Duo, £35

In two flattering colours – Sandwash Pink and Pink – with a semi-matte finish, this is a lipstick duo that you’ll get lots of wear out of, and £5 from every sale goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm, £68

A long-time supporter of Breast Cancer Care, this year Elemis will be making a donation of £25,000 to the charity through sales of its Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm, which is decorated with a bespoke rose print by Brit designers Lily and Lionel.

7. MZ Skin Hydrate & Nourish Age Defence Retinol Day Moisturizer SPF30, £95, Net-a-Porter

Luxury skincare brand MZ Skin will be donating 5% of its total website sales to Breast Cancer Haven, so when you purchase its celeb-favourite Hydrate & Nourish day cream online in October, you’ll be supporting the charity.

8. GHD Gold by Lulu Guinness, £139

Two icons have come together this year to say ‘kiss this, cancer’. GHD has teamed up with Lulu Guinness on a pink straightener emblazoned with the designer’s signature lip print. For every Gold style sold, £10 will go to Breast Cancer Now.
