BCA: Raise Some Eyebrows

This fall and winter, it looks like big bushy brows are en vogue. Again.

But eyebrows are important in other senses than just fashion. They provide insight into a person’s changing moods and are an effective communication tool. Even Massachusetts Institute of Technology (that MIT) published a study involving subjects identifying celebrity faces, where the celebrities had either their eyes or eyebrows digitally edited out. With the eyes edited out, participants correctly recognized the celebrity 56% of the time. With the EYEBROWS edited out, they only recognized celebrities 46% of the time… That means, your eyebrows are substantially more important in facial recognition and identification than your eyes.

Apparently, the eyebrows are the beautiful hand-carved, arched window frames to the soul.

All joking aside, what does that mean for those with alopecia or who are undergoing chemotherapy?

Or, like my mom, who just got a little too tweezer-happy back in the ‘70’s ’cause, “That was the style.” Because, apparently, everyone wanted to look surprised. All the time. Kind of like face-lifts of the past. Spooky.

Let me introduce you to SurvivorEyes, a brow styling kit that is a simple and precise system, with a long-lasting formula.

Featuring Sorme® Cosmetics, each brow kit comes with reusable eyebrow stencils, a dual-sided applicator brush, plus instructions and information about the company and where your money goes. Hint: 5% of their annual profits go to charities including http://www.LookGoodFeelBetter.org and the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (www.naaf.org).

SurvivorEyes also sells two other lines of eyebrow enhancing essentials:
Forever Brows is a great set in a sparkly silver box, with accessories and two brow shades of a water-proof, sweat-proof pomade, and it’s been featured on TheKnot.com. (https://www.theknot.com/marketplace/survivoreyes-inc-yorba-linda-ca-1033455)
It makes a fabulous gift for several types of occasions, including fundraisers, swag bags, Christmas gifts, or even bridesmaid’s gifts.

And my favorite (whoever created this name should get a raise), Brows 4 Bros, which does not come in a sparkly silver, but rather a classic looking, brown leather-style box.

You can find more information at http://www.SurvivorEyes.com, including President Lisa Brambilla’s choice, after beating cancer, to do what she could to help others maintain a bright outlook through incredibly challenging times.

A big shout out to Lisa, who gladly sent me both a Forever Brow and a SurvivorEyes kit, the latter of which has been shared with my oncologist, who, like many other doctors, recognizes the importance of positivity during cancer evaluation and/or treatment.
