SAVE MORE THAN £65 ON THE ESTEE LAUDER BEAUTY BOX
The Estée Lauder Beauty Box launches tomorrow – it costs £25 with £15 going to Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) – and contains more than £91 worth of goodies, including Clinique eye cream and lip balm, Estée Lauder foam cleanser and Smashbox mascara. Each box includes a pink ribbon you can wear to show your support for the campaign. One in eight women in the UK develop breast cancer in their lifetime; almost eight in ten will survive the disease for ten years or more.
The late Evelyn Lauder began the first breast cancer campaign in 1992, co-creating the Pink Ribbon to raise awareness. In the 25 years since then, Estée Lauder breast cancer campaign has raised more than £52 million for global research, education and medical services and funded 225 research grants.
Elizabeth has been the campaign’s global ambassador for more than 20 years.
The UK Breast Cancer Campaign Beauty Box sold out in less than a week last year and raised £60,000 for BCRF.
One BCRF-funded research programme at London’s Royal Marsden Hospital is a trial of anti-oestrogen drugs and therapies for breast cancer patients. Another, at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, is looking at what can be done to alleviate stress levels in breast cancer patients.
So far, in 2017, the BCRF has invested more than £1 million in UK research. Nearly £10 million has been raised in Britain since the campaign began. This year, to mark its 25th anniversary, the campaign has a new mission: to help create a breast-cancer-free world.
