Breast Cancer buys – Beauty with a Conscience

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women in Africa and its diaspora. With October designated worldwide as awareness month of the disease, here are some cosmetic brands which are once again donating a percentage from sales of their pink products to raising breast cancer awareness and research. With that time of the year  approaching fast, think these make a perfect Christmas gift too.
