Whether you lost a loved one, have a personal connection to someone who has breast cancer, are a survivor or simply want to be a part of helping to find a cure, Breast Cancer Awareness month is a time to come together and promote awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.

Thanks to beauty companies like Adventuress and Primavera, helping support the cause is easy and helps rid you of dreaded buyer’s remorse. These are my top two picks that do wonders for skin and even larger wonders in breast cancer research.

Adventuress Vividly Restorative Skin Purifier

This product was designed with an active lifestyle in mind. It’s traveled with me, been toted along in my gym bag and tossed in my backpack when going for long bike rides. The restorative purifier promises to hydrate, enhance radiance, unblock pores and firm your skin using the power of quince seed and other naturally occurring fruit and plant extracts. The consistency feels like a face serum and it has a pleasant scent. It’s great if you’re looking to liven up dull skin or are in need of a refreshing cleanse after a long day. For the month of October, Adventuress will be donating $1 of every item sold to the Bikes 4 Breast Cancer Initiative to keep with their active message.

The lotion is certified natural by NaTrue and deeply nourishes parched skin with high quality holistic ingredients which are gathered from sustainable organic farms. In honor of BCA month, the brand is donating 75% of online purchases of the lotion to
