Mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month and feel as good as you look with these limited edition products which all support breast cancer research


Statistics show that 1 in 2 women don’t regularly check their boobs for signs of cancer and 90% of 18-35 year olds check only a few times a year or less. These limited edition products serve as regular reminders in your beauty routine to check your boobs, and all support breast cancer research. Donate to Breast Cancer Ireland here.
