It's October, the month of ghostly costumes, pumpkin carving and, as most of you will know by now, Breast Cancer Awareness. The month of pink ribbons provides the perfect excuse to indulge in a little beauty buying as a number of products are available with some portion of the proceeds going to support breast-cancer-related charities.
Below is our pick of the some of the special limited edition products, all with a chunk of the profits going to organisations doing vital work to support Breast Cancer Care.
Crabtree & Evelyn’s Evelyn Rose and Pear and Pink Magnolia, from £15, £1 to Breast Cancer Care
From the Pear and Pink Magnolia Body Wash to the Evelyn Rose eau de parfum, £1’s worth of proceeds from every purchase made in two of Crabtree and Evelyn’s most popular lines, will go to Breast Cancer Care.
Luxury beauty brand Elemis have pledged to donate £10,000 to Breast Cancer Care. This pink edition flash balm moisturises and protects, and contains Silk Mica, which acts as a perfection-hiding, light-diffusing veil.

One of Jo Malone’s most popular colognes will be available in this limited edition Pink Ribbon bottle, with a generous donation going to the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.
