|Pink Ribbon Soap from The Pig and the Peacock|
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and you know what that means: it’s time to think pink with purchases that benefit breast cancer research and education. Here are just a few pink products to choose from.
Pink Ribbon Soap from The Pig and the Peacock is a gardenia and tuberose scented soap made with shea butter, coconut oil, and other skin-loving ingredients. Half of each sale of these pink ribbons (three 1-ounce bars are included with each purchase) is donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.
|Pink Gelato Lip Gloss from PRIIA|
If you’re looking for a pink to pucker up with, PRIIA Cosmetics is donating $1 from the sale of each Pink Gelato About2Pout Natural Lip Gloss to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. PRIIA describes Pink Gelato as “sheer luminous swirls of opalescent pink with a hint of shimmer.” PRIIA lip glosses are handcrafted and contain no chemical preservatives, petroleum by-products, or synthetics.
|Pink Ribbon Sock Monkey
by Mister Sockmonkey
I just love this “monkey with a cause.” This Pink Ribbon Sock monkey was handmade by Mister Sockmonkey in Toronto. The Pink Ribbon Sock Monkey is 18 inches tall and has a hand-stitched pink heart. Inspired by the special breast cancer survivors they’ve known, Mister Sockmonkey donates 25% of the purchase price to The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
|Breast Cancer Awareness BuNnY MoNsTeR
Breast cancer seems like a big scary monster, but I’m pretty sure this little pink monster will help to scare it away. Breast Cancer Awareness BuNnY MoNsTeRz are hand made to order by StarMonkey and a portion of each sale will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Each bunny is unique, though on average they stand about 8 – 9 inches tall and give big 5-inch hugs.
The Hope Candle (see below) is created from organic vegetable wax by Blue Moon Candles. Each 8 ounce candle features a Pink Sugar scent and is packaged in a pink silk bag. Profits from the sale of The Hope Candle go to the American Cancer Society.

|Pink Kisses Balms from GCDSpa|
In addition to the Pink Lady moisturizers we have available year round at GCDSpa, we’re also pleased to offer a Limited Edition Pink Kisses lip balm flavor. Balms are wrapped in cello bags with special tags and pink ribbons. Help us kiss cancer good-bye: $1 from the sale of each cherry-vanilla balm goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
