October is the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month around the globe, so we're getting ready for a lot of pink-themed products that will come out in support of the cause. Did you know that breast cancer is the second-most common cancer worldwide and the most common form of cancer that affects women, according to the World Cancer Research Fund? Years of research have shown that early detection programmes and treatment facilities greatly help in improving recovery results, yet these resources are still lacking especially in less developed countries. So aside from donating directly to breast cancer research and prevention organisations, you can help to spread awareness and help in your own way with these limited-edition items that support the cause.
Cocoraw x Clozette Pink Hope Chocolates
Indulge in your love for chocolates with these limited-edition pink-themed chocolates! Clozette Malaysia has teamed up with the chocolatiers at Cocoraw to create the Pink Hope Chocolates for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. These mouthwatering rose-flavoured white nama chocolates are available in quantities of 12 and 24 pieces per box — perfect for sharing or your own enjoyment. Plus, you can get an additional 15 per cent discount with the code HOPE15 from today until 31 October.
MODA Malaysia Pink Merchandise
For those with a passion for fashion, check out the Pink Merchandise initiative by the Malaysian Official Designers' Association (MODA). The collaborative project seeks to raise awareness about breast cancer in Malaysia, where one in four Malaysians is affected by the disease. The collection features 20 different pink-themed products designed by 16 of Malaysia’s talented fashion designers. Each piece can be found in the special pink vending machines MODA has installed across Kuala Lumpur. Head over to Pavilion KL, Mid Valley Megamall, Sunway Pyramid, Avenue K & The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey in JB to see what they have to offer.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex
Another pink-themed product that contributes to breast cancer awareness is this special edition of the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum in a striking pink bottle. This potent facial serum works day and night to advance skin renewal, leaving you with smoother, more even and radiant complexion. With every purchase of this limited-edition product this October, SGD30 will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Origins ORIGINAL SKIN™ Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay
If you love to mask up for your self-care nighttime routine, take this chance to nab a bottle of the Origins ORIGINAL SKIN™ Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay. This clay mask gently exfoliates the skin to refine its texture and minimise pores. With every purchase of the 75ml bottle throughout October, SGD10 will also go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in support of breast cancer awareness. As a bonus, you will also get a limited-edition 100 per cent cotton cosmetic bag, available while supplies last.
Perk By Kate Harper Full Cup Padded Bralette Set in Blush
We also have some pink-themed intimate wear from Perk By Kate, a Singaporean boutique. In partnership with The Estée Lauder Companies, Perk By Kate will be coming out with an exclusive collection of intimates that aims to make women feel beautiful and confident both inside and out. The collection, whose part of the proceeds will be donated to the Singapore General Hospital, includes the Harper Full Cup Padded Bralette, which was designed for patients who have undergone mastectomy with its added coverage.
