Hi, looking for recommendations for serums that actually work but don't cost the earth? Overplucking in my younger years has left my eyebrows rather sparse, I use an eyebrow pencil in the day but I actually think this is exasperating the problem as I think the pencil is pulling some of what I have left out! I think they look awful when I don't have make up on & have now got to the point where it's starting to make me feel a bit down about them. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
I gave up trying to get mine to grow so I got semi permanent ones done. I'm really happy with them, they look natural and no more messing around with a pencil. If you don't want semi permanent make up I used to use Benefit Ka-brow and Benefit Gimme brow which I found the best out of all the pencils/powders that I tried. I also tried a serum from Boots (I think it was rapidbrow) but I never saw a difference and wasted £37 for nothing.
I'd also second semi permanent. I hated my eyebrows & had tried to grow them in for about 18 months. I had mine micro bladed this week and it's given me a real confidence boost & complety changed my face. I've also had lots of nice comments.
I'm only Day 3 so they're still very dark. But I have a proper shape at last & when they've healed I know they'll look even better.
My eyebrow threading lady suggested to rub Vaseline on my uneven brows before bed. I can't comment if it works as I keep forgetting, but petroleum jelly is suppose to promote hair growth (that's why is not suitable for face) Also heard about castor oil being great for regrow of hair and I've had a bottle saved in my Amazon basket forever.
