Dermatology Academy awards BGDL second year in a row!

December 16th, 2009 by Chassin

The Gold Triangle 2010 winners were announced today by the American Academy of Dermatology.

For the second year in a row, BGDL is a winner..actually this year it’ll be two Gold Triangle awards in the category of community health organizations. Winners are selected for educating and increasing awareness of a skin disease and the role of dermatology for patients and the public.

First, for “www.baldgirlsdolunch.org”, our ever evolving website and photo gallery.

Second, for “The Beauty Event”, March 2009 in Larchmont, NY with the Bobbi Brown makeup artists of Neimans at The Westchester.

“This event was the most rewarding, life changing experience for the makeup artists. It’s amazing to take your profession and be able to affect lives in an event driven by passion and not by sales. As a team we had a greater feeling of accomplishment than with our usual work for strictly superficial cosmetic needs. Treating each individual took on extra special meaning that day. Someone said: ‘I  look so beautiful I don’t want to wash my face.'”Jill K Imbrogno, Bobbi Brown acct mgr/ Neimans, White Plains, NY

Women say: We’re loving the BGDL Powder Brow and Sealer

December 10th, 2009 by Chassin

 I love my BGDL Make-up!!!! – AF, Israel

“I love my BGDL brow set with powder, brush and sealer. My eyebrows look natural and I never need to re-apply during the day. Even after a rigorous aerobic workout they are perfectly set, and as a fitness instructor with “all eyes on me” this is extremely important. I feel entirely confident and having that peace of mind is just as essential as the aesthetic outcome of the product. My friends tell me that my brows look full and natural. Thank you!” – S, Alopecia 6 months

“I have found it works great over a tattoo. It gets rid of the grayish/bluish color that a lot of permanent make-up gets after a while….I use it to make by brows lighter than they are naturally as it goes better with the lighter hair I wear. I recommend it to my customers.” – D, Alopecia 15 years

Note from BGDL.…..new projects for 2010 include an online make-up store for your convenience. Till then? brows@baldgirlsdolunch.org . All proceeds support the growth of our community and outreach to alopecian women everywhere.
