What you see is what you get. That’s what being honest is all about—being truthful and sincere. And that’s what Honest Skincare is all about too.


Honest Skincare is an Auckland-based company dealing in a range of skincare products made from raw—honest—ingredients, like kawakawa, flaxseed oil and beeswax. Together they can make your skin feel smooth and healthy, but they can also be a healing cream for wounds and even skin conditions like eczema. And they honestly work!


Honest Skincare is also into sustainability—and not just of the planet. They are also concerned about people and their development generally. So, Honest Skincare generously paid-it-forward $600 of their skincare products to Breast Cancer Support to be given to the people they assist.


Breast Cancer Support, as its name suggests, helps people—both women and men—who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. What sets Breast Cancer Support apart is that their workers have also faced breast cancer themselves and know what it’s like to face the challenges of such a shocking diagnosis. There’s the range of emotions from anger to self-pity to deal with as well as making sense of all the medical information about the disease, coping with the loneliness such a diagnosis can bring and coming to terms with life’s new normal. Breast Cancer Support’s one-to-one support has helped many breast cancer sufferers in Aotearoa New Zealand for over 40 years.


So, let’s be honest: none of us would choose to face breast cancer. But if we do find ourselves (or loved ones) in this situation, it’s good to know that Breast Cancer Support is there. And, thanks to Honest Skincare, they can go the extra mile to help those facing the disease.
