Review by Ceri Wheeldon
Thinning brows can be a problem for women over 50, especially as many of us were encouraged to pluck, pluck , pluck when we were younger resulting in very sparse brows now.
If, like me, you’re not a fan of the ‘painted on ‘ brow look, then I think this Silk Powder Brow Enhancer could be the solution. It acts as instant brush on brow extensions, helping to lengthen, thicken and fill in brows. This is different from using eyebrow pencils as it sculpts the eyebrow by attaching hundreds of tiny fibres to the brows, giving a natural looking brow. One word f caution -it is very powdery so best done in the bathroom – avoid using any cream bedroom carpet which is a mistake I made!
It stays in place all day (the literature says 12 hours) and sets in only a minute, and is water resistant. I used mine on holiday and it did not run in the heat – so a good sign.
As the Silk Fibre Brow Enhancer comes in 4 shades I chose the medium shade. although next time I think I would probably go for the light, as I prefer a less heavy brow .
If you are thinking of having your brows tattooed, or find that pencilling your brows is creating too hard a line, I would definitely recommend giving this a try.
Incidentally this product had rave reviews from cancer patients in Australia who lost eyebrows der to chemo and radio therapy.
