Pink Ribbon Product! For Breast Cancer Awareness month, Aveda asks you on the front of the Hand Relief bottle “Have you had your annual breast exam?”. During the month of October, Aveda will donate $4 from the sale of each Breast Cancer Awareness Hand Relief to the BCRF to help advance the understanding of environmental links to breast cancer. The limited edition Hand Relief is specially packaged in a 5oz tube, a 19% increase in size, with a 7% savings.
I’m always a huge fan of the way Aveda products smell, and this rich hand crème is now on my list of fabulously scented Aveda products. It’s a subtle, fresh, and spa-like scent. My hands feel wonderful after I use Hand Relief. Silky smooth! It’s a great product and a great way to support BCA month. Get one for yourself and one for a friend. Your hands will absolutely love it!

One a very personal note: Many of you have suffered a great loss from breast cancer, seen someone you love go through it and some of you are dealing with it yourselves. I, too, have lost someone I love very much to cancer and therefore, I want to dedicate this month’s Breast Cancer Awareness features in her memory. In 2006, Karen Phillips, my best friend’s mother lost her battle with breast cancer. She was a wife, a mother, a grandmother and a caring nurse for many years. She handled her painful struggle with more grace and courage than I can explain.
To Lisa, my best friend: I honor your mother with you always.
To Karen: I love you. Thank you. We all miss you and thank you for showing us the meaning of grace.
