Even if you are the most sceptical buyer, especially of skin care, you can — amazing as it seems — believe the promise on this one.
I first bought this elsewhere when they were offering a 90-day to return guarantee. To be honest, I bought it more out of curiosity than conviction, expecting to give it a try but send it back within the guarantee. I thought it was just worth the return postage to see if it had any effect whatsoever.
It wasn't as though they were claiming it would grow any hair where it was missing: that would have been outrageous! They were just saying it would give me "thicker, fuller-looking" brows.
I naturally have very sparse, very fair, almost invisible brows, naturally sparse to the point that I could count them along half of their length. I wanted to have 'proper' brows before it was too late for any hope. Nothing makes a woman look so old as when her eyebrows start to disappear as she gets older. And the fact I'd never had any in the first place didn't exactly help.
It's not that, like some people, I've lost mine through over-plucking. I had no need to. I've never had any eyebrows worth plucking, bar the very occasional strange one appearing below my brow at the top of my eyelid.
I'd never needed to 'tame' them: I had nothing to tame.
I've always taken really good care of my skin — and my attitude to life. Acquaintances regularly assume me to be at least a decade younger than I am (even with my invisible eyebrows letting me down). I certainly don’t want to start being taken for older than I am because of my invisible brows.
So I thought I might as well give this product a try just to see if it might help. Perhaps Maybe.
Now you'd have trouble prizing it from my hand.
I started off being meticulous about using it twice every day on clean, dry skin, as per the instructions. But it said it takes several weeks to work and I'm lazy and disorganised. So for much of the time I wasn't even using it once every day, just most days, but even I'd sometimes forget it should be used on dry skin and use it after I'd already applied other creams. So I wasn't exactly using it as instructed. That's why I was so astonished when it worked.
I also started off, of course, peering at my brows almost daily (i.e. every time I remembered to use it) to see if it was working. After a while, though, of seeing nothing I gave that up and using it just became part of my (rather slapdash) no-mirror-needed, evening routine, only using it occasionally during the day if I happened to remember.
(You need to understand that health issues keep me virtually bedridden and I hardly ever go out, so rarely wear makeup, and I keep my hair simply twisted up on top of my head. I rarely have much cause to look in a mirror. I can generally do all I need to without one.)
Then one day, in the bathroom, I glanced in the mirror as I was washing my hands and found myself rooted to the spot with astonishment. I can still remember exactly what I said, out loud: "Blimey! I've got eyebrows!"
It was a bit of a shock!
At first, I wasn't quite sure whether I even liked my new, more noticeable, thicker brows. It took a while to adjust to having a new face. Now I love them. I reallly don't ever want to,have to go back to those ageing wisps.
It's not, please note, that the product simply makes my brows look artificially thicker. I really do have more hair in my brows. I've gone from being able to count them in single digits to not being able to count them all. This product really does grow eyebrow hairs where none grew before. But it also makes individual hairs thicker and coarser, all adding to the effect.
One effect I wasn't expecting is that they are also darker, which I like as it makes them more visible, not the almost-transparent wisps they were before. I now have a proper 'frame' for my face, and I really do look younger.
I'll probably never have the kind of bushy brows that need gelling into place. But they wouldn't look right on my face, so that's fine. I have the brows my face ought to have had all along, but somehow never did.
So if you think the claims for this product are too good to be true — I wouldn't blame you. I was extremely sceptical too. Who wouldn't be? All I can tell you is that it worked for me, and worked way beyond my expectations; way beyond the claims it makes, even.
Is that a first for the skin care and cosmetics industry?
(BTW I have no connection whatever with anyone or any company in any way associated with this company or this product. I am just an ordinary consumer who has, to her genuine surprise, found a product that works even better than it claims to, and I wanted to let other women know it might work as well for them, because it delivers results that are so important to most women's sense of self-esteem.)
