THREE THINGS: Breast Cancer Awareness Month with eos, Travalo and Cashmere

1 in 9 Canadian women are expected to develop breast cancer during their lifetimes. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual initiative by major breast cancer charities to raise awareness and raise funds for research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of the disease. 

Their are a plethora of ways to show your support for the cause such as volunteering, leaning about breast cancer, direct donations and also donations through the purchase of of products. Today, I've got three different Breast Cancer Awareness items to share with you. 

eos Body Lotion ($4.99 to $8.99 CAD) - 100% of the net profits from the sale of the eos Berry Blossom Body Lotions will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. Internationally, there is a separate donation program supporting breast cancer research centres. This was my first experience with the eos Berry Blossom Body Lotions. They're fairly lightweight and remind me a lot of the eos Hand Creams but in bigger bottles. The formula is whipped and contains shea butter, vitamin E, avocado oil, coconut oil, macadamia seed oil, soy bean oil, flower seed oil. Available at Loblaws, Walmart, London Drugs and FamiliPrix in two sizes, 200mL with a flip top cap and 350 mL with a pump. 

 ($19.99 to $49 USD) - For this month, all sales of the Travalo Excel, Classic HD and Milano pink models will be donated to Bright Pink, a not-for-profit organization with a mission to save lives by empowering women to live proactively at a young age. If you're not familiar with Travalo, it's the perfect way to make your heavy glass bottle of perfume travel-friendly. The refillable atomizer allows you to refill it directly from any fragrance bottle with a removable spray head. Travalo is available at http://us.travalo.com/products

Cashmere Ultra 3 Pink Bathroom Tissue - 25 cents from each purchase of the limited edition 3 ply bathroom tissue is contributed to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (up to $35,000 per year). The bathroom tissue is hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved.  3-ply is fancy. I know it seems strange to be talking about toilet paper but I recently attended the Cashmere White Collection 2016 Fashion Show, featuring 16 Canadian designers that made season-inspired designs crafted in Cashmere Bathroom Tissue. My favourite was a floral high-low gown by Narces! You can also vote for your favourite design at http://bit.ly/2cqUpNo and $1 for each vote will be donated to the CBCF. 

Will you be picking up any of these pink products?
