Tomorrow is October 1st, which is the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So many companies (beauty and otherwise) are offering products that are pink and that donate a portion of the proceeds towards breast cancer research. (I’ve posted a few of my favorites at my Pink Ribbon Beauty page. I’m trying to keep it updated as I come across interesting products.) Through the end of October, Bobbi Brown is offering free shipping on any order that includes a Pink Ribbon item, enter code PINK08 at checkout. This will expire on October 31.
