The Estee Lauder corporation, which owns Aveda amongst other well-known brands, has been one of the biggest beauty supporters of Breast Cancer Awareness month via the Evelyn Lauder founded Breast Cancer Research Foundation so it seems fitting that as the month draws to a close, today's post takes a look at the Aveda offering in support of the cause.
Aveda have launched their bestselling Hand Relief hand lotion in special limited edition packaging in support of the cause.
Hand Relief is described as a rich cream designed to soften and smooth, whilst helping to diminish the signs of aging. Key ingredients include Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Liquorice extract and Glycerin to help moisturise, brighten and protect.
Personally, I found it to have more of a lotion texture (which I prefer) than a cream. I only needed to use a little to thoroughly and effectively moisturise my hands and I appreciated that the cream was easily absorbed, without leaving a greasy residue. The limited edition Hand Relief has been infused with the brand's rosemary & mint fragrance, a fresh and sophisticated scent which I was pleased to note lingered delicately on my skin after use.
What's more, the limited edition Hand Relief is 20% larger than the standard size so you can be reminded of the worthy cause for longer.
If you haven't yet picked up one of the Breast Cancer Awareness products, I'd definitely recommend checking this out. Aveda have donated more than $2.7million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation since 2002 through sales of special, limited edition Breast Cancer Awareness products. I was interested to note that the Aveda contribution goes towards research into the environmental causes & links to breast cancer so there's a synergy with the brand that goes beyond the usual link of women using beauty products.
Aveda Pink Ribbon Hand Relief costs £19 for 150ml, with £2 from each sale being donated to the cause.
