Honestly, how would we cope if we were told that we had breast cancer? Would we freak out? Feel afraid and alone? Not know who to turn to? Thankfully for those in the Bay of Plenty, there is Breast Cancer Support Service Tauranga

In this wonderful organisation the staff know what it’s like to feel shocked and scared when receiving a diagnosis. They’re able to come alongside those who have been newly diagnosed to offer kindness and emotional support, as well as practical support. 

They know first-hand how treatment can make you feel, including the effect it has on your skin and hair. This makes them grateful to be able to offer a small pick-me-up in the form of natural skincare, thanks to Honest Skincare.

“A client who has received a voucher from Honest Skincare has been through quite a tough time whilst going through her breast cancer treatment. Some clients stop working for a while as they can have quite severe reactions to treatment, so when she was offered this voucher, she was very grateful. We wouldn't have been able to offer these vouchers to our clients if it wasn’t for Honest Skincare going through GoGenerosity, so it’s very much appreciated by us and by our clients.”


Supporter Engagements, Breast Cancer Support Services Tauranga

Honest Skincare uses New Zealand-grown natural products in creating its skincare ranges. Think ingredients like kawakawa, hemp and avocado, all locally sourced to lessen the company’s carbon footprint.

Thanks to their customers, as well as their own generous top-ups, Honest Skincare recently paid-forward $100 worth of vouchers to the Tauranga Breast Cancer Support Service, to pass on to clients. 

If you like to support local, both in your purchases and generosity, head to Honest Skincare’s website and pay-it-forward while you’re there.
