Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual event where brands unveil pink products in aid of breast cancer charities.

This year, the aim is to make women more knowledgeable about the signs and symptoms of the disease.

The advice is to regularly check your breasts for changes - such as the size or shape, any lumps, dimpling or texture change, a rash or redness, or liquid that comes from the nipples - and get them checked at your GP.

Estee Lauder, the company responsible for the iconic pink ribbon symbol, has produced leaflets showing what to look for when checking your breasts, available at its beauty counters across the UK.

Here are nine of the best breast cancer awareness beauty buys, which will help raise money for research.
