I have several relatives and friends that have battled or are battling cancer, in various forms from cervical cancer, skin cancer, cancer in the mouth, and breast cancer. I lost my dear uncle to cancer a few years back, that is when I woke up and realized that all the time I spent in the sun without protection probably wasn’t good. (he had skin cancer) There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t worry about the friends/family in remission & still fighting strong against their cancer.
With that being said, I try not to preach or throw in everyone’s face the effects of cancer. But during October Breast Cancer Awareness month, I go beyond my normal support. Part of that support is purchasing everyday products from companies that give a % to Breast Cancer Awareness. I am very cautious about what I buy as a lot of companies that will put a little pink ribbon on their product to “sell more” and never give a dime to BCA.
Dermelect Cosmeceuticals a skincare product company supports a great campaign called Cancer & Careers, a non-profit organization that empowers and educates people with cancer to thrive in their workplace. Cancer & Careers a program of the CEW Foundation, the charitable arm of Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc., which is composed of over 4,000 executives in the beauty, cosmetics, fragrance and related industries.

I was given a bottle of Provocative for review, and love it not only for the cause it’s supporting, but I love how it glides so smoothly across my nail. It’s also a very pretty color and I can wear my “pink” all month-long. I really liked how this nail color glided on my nails, and how it was fast drying. My nails also feel so much stronger too.
Visit Dermelect Cosmeceuticals to see their Me collection as well as all the other products they have to offer. If you are looking for a great nail color, and want to support a great cause, grab yourself a bottle of Provocative today.
