China Glaze and its parent company AII Beauty are supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month with specially packaged favorites from their nail care lines. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Susan G Komen.
First up a three pack of pink polishes from the China Glaze core collection, each adorned with a BCA pink ribbon. So cute! What’s great is that they included a shade for all tastes. A sheer, a baby pink and a hot, in-your-face fuchsia. Of course I applied the sheer to make it opaque. I just can’t do sheers!
Next up, treatment products from China Glaze and Seche.
China Glaze’s BCA Calcium Gel Fortifier is loaded with Vitamin B and Wheat Protein to protect nails from splitting or breaking while promoting growth. Apply two coats to bare nails, repeat every four days and see a difference in just four weeks. It is recommended that you use the Calcium Gel Fortifier on its own, without polish.
If Seche Vite isn’t already in your nail arsenal, you’re totally missing out. A favorite of the MUA Nail Board and staple in my nail routine, Seche Vite is one of the best quick drying top coats on the market. High gloss shine that lasts, rock hard protection and a five minute dry time. What’s not to love?
Application Tip: Unlike most top coats, you want to have a good sized blob of product on the brush. Quickly drag the blob across your nail and let the formula spread on its own.
For BCA Month, Seche is including a set of pink ribbon nail decals and crystal nail gems with each bottle of Vite. I’m not really into nail art but these were too cute to pass up. And so easy to apply. Just peel and stick, simple as that!
Finally, from AII Beauty brand, Body Drench, comes the Pink Ribbon version of their Daily Moisturizing Lotion with a portion of the proceeds going to The Cancer Institute of New Jersey. The Daily Moisturizing Lotion was dubbed The Original “Bosom Cream” because of its frequent use by women who had undergone mastectomy surgery to help reduce scarring and to increase comfort when wearing a bra.
As a former indoor tanner (don’t heckle me), Body Drench lotions have been in my household for years. They market the indoor tanning community but have products for everyone. Can I just tell you, the Sun Splashed Mango scent is amazing for summer. What I love is that the lotion sinks right into your skin. There’s no white streaks left behind. And the original baby powder scent is light and sweet, not overpowering.
So while you’re shopping this month, consider buying products that make a difference and help support the Breast Cancer Awareness initiative in any way you can.
Don’t forget, I’m participating in the Beauty Blog Network’s Comments For A Cure campaign and it starts TOMORROW!
