Mastectomy Swimmers and The Pink Products We Love

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we’re noticing a bevy of pink products crossing our desk, helping to raise much needed money and awareness for breast cancer research. Here, our roundup of the pink products we’re loving this October - so you can treat yourself to gorgeous beauty prods while doing some major good. Oh, and we’ve also spied a gorgeous new range of swimwear, designed with women who’ve had mastectomies in mind - to say we’re impressed is an understatement.

Dive In

It takes an Aussie brand to get an item as quintessentially Australian as a pair of swimmers and to revamp it for women who have undergone mastectomies - and that’s exactly what Jets have done. Available in a range of ultra chic colours and silhouettes, these gorgeous one-pieces offer extra support and internal pockets for prostheses to be worn, without being in the least bit obvious. And for all online orders in October, 5% of sales go to the McGrath Foundation. Top marks, Jets.


Heavy Metal

Over the past few years, a lot of us have been thinking about changing out our conventional deodorants for more natural options - especially given aluminium in anti-perspirants has been linked to a higher risk of breast cancer. So what better time to make the switch than this month, with Black Chicken offering a bumper-sized version of their cult Axilla Deodorant Paste? It’s free from aluminium (as well as a slew of other nasties) and $2 from every sale goes to fund breast cancer research. Win, win.


Bathing Beauty

We’re always in awe of the work that Pink Hope do around educating women about their risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. So we were excited to see them team up with Salt By Hendrix to release a dreamy spa set, boasting a gorgeous bath soak, lip tint and clay mask. Profits from the sale go to fund Pink Hope’s invaluable initiatives, so you can indulge while supporting a worthy cause too.


Tickled Pink

Cult clay mask brand Sand and Sky have brought out a limited edition kit this month, with 30% of profits supporting Look Good Feel Better - and yep, it’s in their signature millennial pink. Comprised of their Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment and a super cute (and cheeky) silky robe, it’s the perfect combo for an all-pink pamper sesh.


Our Lips Are Sealed

We’re pretty smitten with this Lulu Guinness x ghd offering, and the fact that $20 from each sale goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation means it’s a sure thing we’re adding this to our wish lists this October. Adorned with the quirky British designer’s iconic lips design, the gold styler boasts dual-heat technology, to protect hair from damage and leave strands looking smooth and sleek. What’s not to love?
