Let’s fight breast cancer. Consider Amalie Wink in pink. #PinkWink

WINK Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancer #PinkWink

As we all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. During this month companies do their best to help with the fight against this horrific disease.

WINK Lash & Brow Enhancing Oil

Amalie Beauty has many great products that I’m enjoying but it’s their contributions to people that impress me beyond belief. Last year alone they donated 2,187 Wink enhancers to cancer warriors. For every Wink sold in October they will donate one to a cancer warrior, through their partnership with Breast Cancer Charities of America’s Feeling Beautiful Again program. Their goal is to donate 2,500 units of WINK to cancer warriors this year.

Amalie Beauty WINK

Amalie Beauty’s WINK is an eyelash and eyebrow enhancer. I’ve used it on and off for a few years and am currently using it now. It definitely helps with growth and it leaves my lashes and brows in fabulous condition.

I have nothing but raves for Wink and am excited that #PinkWink is back for the month of October. Do your eyes a favor and purchase one for yourself knowing that you are also giving one to someone who has lost their lashes and/or brows in their battle.  —  Marcia

Keep thinking pink for October

For a while I wasn’t on the bandwagon for BCA products. I had very mixed feelings about companies that seemed to exploit the movement to sell. But that’s changed over the years as more people that I know have suffered with cancer of all types. I now believe that if we are going to buy something then it’s best to be able to contribute to cancer causes at the same time.

Theraband Kinesiology Tape, Wink Eyebrow/Eyelash Enhancer, Angelo David Pink Wet & Dry Brush

Theraband Kinesiology Tape, Wink Eyebrow/Eyelash Enhancer, Angelo David Pink Wet & Dry Brush

Two products that I was sent recently have come in very handy and donate to worthwhile causes. Theraband Kinesiology Tape came at a great time for the extra pains I’ve had associated with my broken foot plus pulled muscles from my fall. And Angelo David’s Pink Wet-&-Dry Brush has helped cheer me up when I’m feeling down. Both donate to breast cancer charities that I admire.

Theraband Kinesiology Tape

Theraband Kinesiology Tape

Let’s start with the helpful – Theraband Kinesiology Tape. If you’ve ever been to any rehab you’ll be family with Theraband since almost all use the original Therabands for exercise purposes. They are heavy rubber bands of different sizes and thickness that are used for stretching. Therabrand also makes different kinds of tapes for pain relief and muscle support. Unlike braces and other athletic tape, this one won’t restrict and actually encourages active muscle movement. XactStretch indicators show you exactly how much you should stretch the tape to make it effective, just like the professionals do.

The Kinesiology Tape comes in a roll with Pre-Cut Tapes that can be stretched to fit the area you need relief. Some ideas for use are Achilles, Ankle/Swelling, Knee, Lumbar, Neck, Postural Correction, Quad & Patellar, Shoulder, Star Pattern (Lower Back). I pulled a muscle in the back of my knee on one leg and scraped up my knee on the other and used this for my relief. Not sure how my husband will feel about this pretty bright pink and white shade but he really needs this.

Therabrand is donating 50 cents from each purchase of this pink and white one to PinkLink, a social community for survivors of breast cancer. While the amount isn’t that high and I wish it were more, it does add up quickly to help. pink-linkAngelo David is a brand I’m sure you’ve heard about since he’s a famous NYC hairdresser with salons of his own. To help with cancer research they are donating $4 of the proceeds from their Pink Wet-&-Dry Hair Brush to the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.

The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation is an international organization dedicated to curing and preventing cancer. The Foundation is a pioneer in cancer research and its mission is to eradicate cancer by funding cutting-edge research that identifies and corrects abnormal gene function that causes cancer and develops minimally toxic treatments for patients. Through the Foundation’s collaborative group of world-class scientists, the Institute Without Walls, investigators share information and tools to speed the pace of cancer research. Since its inception in 1976, the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation has awarded approximately $90 million to support the work of more than 200 researchers across the globe.

I will never use anything else on my wet hair than a Wet & Dry Brush. I avoid snarls, tears, split ends, and frizz when I use a Wet & Dry Brush and you will too. What’s better than a soft pink one too? Might as well have a pretty brush to make your hair as pretty as possible.

The Angelo David brush is very well made. It’s lightweight but gets through all snarls with ease. At first I thought of using it on my 3 year old but I decided to be selfish and use it myself. Feeling down about my fall, I love having this pink brush to make me look and feel better.

I can’t help but put in a plug for WINK #PinkWink while I’m writing.

WINK Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancer #PinkWink

WINK EYELASH & EYEBROW ENHANCER has helped me tremendously with my eyebrows. I not only love the product but the cause that they donate to is magnificent. For every Pink Wink sold one will be donated to a cancer warrior (my review HERE).

There’s only a few days left in October to help with these donations so don’t hesitate. All three items are ones you should consider because you’ll love them and others will love you for caring.  —  Marcia

HeadBlade ATX – the best gift for BCA you’d never know about

HeadBlade ATX-Pink

HeadBlade ATX-Pink

Shave for a Cure is the slogan for this amazing HeadBlade ATX-Pink razor. I’m in awe with it’s cuteness and the incredible cause it was made for. I’m in awe in general with this company that sent me the ATX-Pink but has many other colors available. I’ll tell you right now, it would make a unique stocking stuffer for both men and women.

HeadBlade ATX-Pink

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, HeadBlade created a limited edition pink version with 30% of the proceeds for October to be donated to Bright Pink. Bright Pink is a national non-profit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in your women. Their mission is to save lives and empower women proactively at a young age. Founded in 2007, Bright Pink strives to reach 52 million women in the US between the ages of 18 and 45 with life saving education.

HeadBlade ATX-Pink

Why do you want the ATX-Pink besides the fact that it has such a mighty mission?

🙂  It provides a great shave for heads, legs and body. ATX stands for All-Terrain so that makes sense!

🙂  It has a distinctive finger ring and suspension that allows for easy shaving and added stability. It’s great to use in the bath/shower.

🙂  The blade is suspended in the back by a unique spring-action device to reduce nicks and cuts.

🙂  The actual shaving head has a multi-blade technology that features a flow-through design for easy and efficient cleaning.

This is the HB4 edition, there is also a HB6 version.

HeadBlade is an interesting company with many shaving products. I’m sure I’d never have learned about them if I hadn’t wanted to promote their Shave for a Cure cause but now that I know about HeadBlade I think it’s going to help in gift giving. They sell individual razors in a variety of colors, blades, shaving creams, and complete sets. For ATX-Pink the set includes ATX LE Pink HeadBlade, one HB4 refill kit, and one 5 oz. bottle of our award winning HeadSlick shave cream.

I hope you’ll consider this over the next week to help contribute to Bright Pink and get a great shaving tool. The razor alone (in any color) is $15 while the kit is $29.97. Razor refills are $9.97 for 4 blades and the adaptor. Imagine the surprise when someone finds this in their stocking or as a gift. We are always looking for items that our friends and family don’t already have and this is THAT gift. Help yourself look smoother while helping others in their quest for health.  —  Marcia

p.s. Even men like pink but there are many colors to choose from.

p.p.s. Obviously this needs to be kept away from young children.

Remedy Nail Care aka Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Care is a brand of polishes that has been developed by two podiatrists. Most male podiatrists wouldn’t necessarily be thinking about women’s polish colors, but Dr. Adam Cirlincione and Dr. William Spielfogel were concerned about dry, brittle discolored nails. By formulating products that contain ingredients that are good for nails they knew they’d see fewer patients with those problems which could lead to even more podiatric problems. Of course once you create a line of polishes that have 30 beautiful shades, we women want them for nails and toes.

What’s unique about Dr.’s Remedy polishes are the ingredients that you won’t find in other brands. All polishes and treatments are enriched with Garlic Bulb Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Wheat Protein and Vitamins C and E.

We were sent the two of the three shades that Dr.’s Remedy have chosen in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Promising Pink and Purity Pink. The sale of these two, along with Peaceful Pink Coral, will bring donations of 10% of sales to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. This collection, THE POWER OF PINK, was picked to promote positivity, serenity and encouragement and to empower those fighting Breast Cancer.

MARCIA WEARS PROMISING PINK

Dr.'s Remedy Promising Pink

Dr.’s Remedy Promising Pink

PROMISING PINK has the perfect name. It’s a petal pink that’s opaque in two coats and is said to suit everyone while it neutralizes any yellow tones on your nail base. This is a cream polish that felt like a breath of fresh air when I was wearing it. I’m so used to wearing darker shades that I tend to ignore a cleansing color like Promising Pink. Yet I know that this beautiful shade is what most women feel comfortable wearing.

While Promising Pink was opaque in two coats, next time I wear it I want to use three in order to make the color a little deeper and to eliminate any sign of visible nail line. I love that this is a vegan line that contains no additives. Looking at the colors above makes me want to investigate Dr.’s Remedy a whole lot more.

LISA WEARS PURITY PINK

PURITY PINK is the definition of the perfect nude nail.  It’s described as a peachy neutral sheer classic shade – not much pink here, it’s definitely more on the peach side.

I am very partial to lighter shades on my tips and Purity Pink is exactly what I want for a classic nude manicure. It is quite sheer so I went with three thin coats for this photo. The creamy, milky peach is feminine and understated. It’s the shade to wear when you don’t want your hands to scream NAILS!! but you do want them to look pretty and clean.

Whichever of these three you wear, remember that you are benefiting both yourself and women who need the help to empower themselves after living with breast cancer.
