Power Play: CO Bigelow Cancer Vixen Body Collection

Speaking of inspirational survival stories (see previous post), C.O. Bigelow’s Limited Edition Cancer Vixen collection tells of one woman who took on breast cancer with a ferocious and comical femininity. C.O. Bigelow teamed up with cartoonist, author and breast cancer survivor Marisa Acocella Marchetto to create special edition C.O. Bigelow bath and body classics that feature her spunky Cancer Vixen heroine on the packaging. The “fashionista activista” illustrations make playful appearances on the sublimely scented Cancer Vixen Wild Berry Body Lotion, Hand Wash and Cleanser. Already a beauty cult favorite, Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint got a pink kick for the collection with an extra punch of glossy flushed mint. Bigelow also put together a Limited Edition Cancer Vixen Kit in honor of the cause with five of their all-time faves that come adorned in the playfully powerful packaging. By purchasing products from the Cancer Vixen collection, you’re supporting C.O. Bigelow’s commitment to donate $250,000 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You can also pick up a copy of Marisa’s poignant and comical memoir, “Cancer Vixen: A True Story.” A portion of the book proceeds go to a fund that she established as well the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Products range from $7.50 to $29.50 and are available at www.bigelowchemists.com and www.bathandbodyworks.com.
