It’s great meeting like minded people, who share their love for makeup and cosmetics through a platform like IMBB. I am a newbie in the world of makeup. Ever since I found myself observing the colours on the faces of people and how they are transformed to accomplish a polished look, my interest for cosmetics grew. But soon I have learnt that apart from cosmetics and make up, a well-groomed set of brows has the amazing ability to frame your face and transform your features. I remember when I got my eyebrows threaded for the very first time! I kept imagining it to be painful, and couldn’t help stressing about my beautician accidentally threading away my whole brow :-o, but I was lucky enough that I had nicely threaded eyebrows with no flaws visible, thanks a ton to my first beautician for that 😛
But often, when you get your eye brows threaded, your features get over-looked and over threaded. With the busy schedules and unlimited multitasking, and when you lack the time, just by taming a few stray hair with a holding gel and filling in the sparse areas with fuller brows instantly will give your face a more symmetrical appearance. Body Shop has introduced one such product – brow and lash gel, which is a true life saver!
Tame your eyebrows and lashes with a quick-drying, conditioning gel that helps to set, hold and define. Specially designed brush is cylindrical and small in diameter for a great combing effect on every lash and hair.
- Elderflower water helps to soothe the skin around the brow area.
- Glycerin and panthenol helps to condition brows and lashes.
- Specially designed brush is cylindrical and small in diameter for a great combing effect on every lash and hair.
How To Use:
Apply directly to the eyelashes, combing from root to tip using the applicator brush. Comb over eyebrows following their natural shape and hair growth direction, using the applicator brush.
My Take on The Body Shop Brow and Lash Gel:
Ever since I read about brow gels, I have been craving for one such product until I happened to see this beauty in the shelves of The Body Shop. The product comes in a transparent tube with a silver screw cap, which looks like a typical lip gloss tube. The product is colourless and the texture of the product is thin and gel like, a little slippery. It has a nice flowery fragrance which is sober and pleasant. The product should be applied with the mascara wand like brush which is attached to the screw cap. The brush has tiny white bristles which looks similar to the mascara brush and helps in combing the brows well. The gel can be used in two ways, to fix the brows and to enhance the lashes.
To fix the brows, comb the gel upwards and smooth outwards to fix in place. To enhance the lashes, brush gel upwards through the lashes. It is a non-sticky formula which runs smooth on the hair and the skin, and is quick-drying, a little goes a long way. This can also be used as a base before applying regular mascara to boost the thickness. It conditions your lashes and brows and gives a soft feel to your brows.
This gel can be used as a transparent mascara to achieve a no-make up look after you apply a little foundation. Ensure you clean the brush with a tissue before you put it back in the tube, otherwise the clear gel will become dirty or foundation coloured.
Pros of The Body Shop Brow and Lash Gel:
- Conditions the brows and lashes, can be used in two ways.
- Can be used as a transparent mascara.
- A little goes a long way, so it might last you for ages.
- Clear, colourless product.
- Non-sticky and quick drying formula.
- Easily available in India when compared to other brow gels.
- Cruelty free and against animal testing.
Cons of The Body Shop Brow and Lash Gel:
- Unreliable because Body Shop changes the availability of its products from time to time.
- Pricey, but this may not be a problem because of the brand value and the unavailability of other brow gels in India.
Would I Repurchase The Body Shop Brow and Lash Gel?
I don’t know whether I will buy this again because a little goes a long way and Body Shop may even discontinue the product before I could finish this off.
Would I Recommend The Body Shop Brow and Lash Gel?
Yes, it is absolutely a good product.
