An invitation for you

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 30 - 2010

I’ve been chatting to some of the people behind the “We Can Face It” campaign and I’d like to invite any interested parties to attend the launch event for the campaign.

So I’m sure you’re wondering what the “We Can Face It” campaign is…

The campaign aims to raise awareness of unwanted facial hair, show sufferers that they are not alone and encourage them to find the treatment regime that works for them.  It’s the first of its kind for the country and hopes to make important steps forward in raising awareness and understanding of a common but under-recognised and isolating condition.

The campaign is being headed up by TV personalities Dr Dawn Harper (Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies), Mica Paris (soul singer and TV presenter) and Jason Gardiner (style guru from ITV’s This Morning) and will include the launch of a newly published report highlighting the results of a survey into the impact of the condition on 1,000 women from across the UK.

ON: Wednesday 2nd June 2010
AT: 6.30pm
IN: Sunbeam Studios, Ladbroke Hall, 79 Barlby Road, London, W10 6AZ

Obviously, this event will only appeal to a small number of my readers… but it’s an issue close to my heart and judging from the correspondence I’ve had with some of you since my hair removal exploits…. close to yours too.

  1. I get so many queries on this subject and every time I post about bodyfacial hair or IPL they are viewed many, many times. It’s a big issue and causes untold misery – what a fabulous campaign this is. Thanks for highlighting it.

    This is something I’d love to attend but I live too far away. If I was London based I’d definitely attend.

    Thank you so much for being so honest and open about your own facial hair issues. It’s enormously encouraging to others, like me, who have to deal with it too. I’d resigned myself to shaving my chin but your laser treatment is giving me hope. I live too far away to join in the event, but I’ll be following it keenly and can’t wait to hear what you have to tell us about it.
