As many of us know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. At Style Station, we understand the importance of this life-threatening disease as it affects 1 in 8 women in the US (about 12.4%) and nearly 5000 a month in the UK and as such we’ve focused on that as our theme this month. By telling stories of hope and dispensing words of motivation to all of our readers we aim to inspire you to take the utmost care in your health and be aware of the struggle that others have survived. While taking care of yourself you can support the cause and look your best with a purchase from these awesome beauty brands.

Feel great about making a purchase from the Estee Lauder brand with Advanced Night Repair ($98) not only does this supercharged formula of hyaluronic acid help to plump and reveal smoother-looking skin but 20 percent of the purchase price goes back to the foundation.
