The start of October marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
In this current climate, people may not be attending doctors’ appointments as regularly as before, meaning self-checking is more important than ever.
Along with raising awareness to self-check, many beauty brands have launched limited-edition items that have pledged to donate proceeds to a wide range of breast cancer awareness charities. Scroll through to see how you can help…

Kohl Kreatives and Kohl Kare
You may already know about Kohl Kreatives and its high quality brushes but what you may not know is that it currently makes zero profit.
Kohl Kares runs all year round and by purchasing its vegan, cruelty-free and sustainable brushes (currently, all of them are made from upcycled plastic), you can help to keep the initiative going for longer. All profits from brush sales are reinvested back into Kohl Kares.
Kohl Kreatives make-up brushes, from £8.99
