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.

With €10 from every limited edition styler sold donated to the Irish Cancer Society, not only will you have a regular reminder and super sleek shiny hair, but you’ll also be supporting a worthy cause. The ghd Take Control Now collection, from €165, is available in Peter Mark salons nationwide and petermark.ie.
