Benefit Brow Bar Review

Good eyebrows are everything right now, and after feeling bummed by my eyebrows for a while I felt as though it was time to get myself down to a Benefit Brow Bar. I went to a Benefit Brow Bar back in February and I loved the results but this time I thought I would be best to show the results in case you are interested. I visited the Benefit Brow Bar in Boots at the Milton Keynes shopping centre, on a Saturday morning you don’t necessarily need to a book an appointment but its recommend and you can find the information for booking appointments in Benefit Shops or Brow Bars here.
A wax costs £14.50 and a wax and tint will set you back £19.50, so comparable with other brow bars and if you go to Boots like me you can collect your Boots points which is always a plus. Before I had a wax and tint, but due to time constraints this time I went for simply a wax, much quicker and I’ve liked to results both time although I recommend the tint as it will make your eyebrows effortless for weeks. Just make sure you read the information and paperwork before you get started there’s a few key things and rules you need to pay attention to before you start your wax.

Benefit Brow Bar - Close Up Before and After - Natural Brows
I have fairly thick eyebrows and I tend to prefer a more natural toned down look, so although they will go for a nice defined arch I went for a more natural look. I love the final look of my eyebrows it is not necessarily dramatic but its natural and suits my face shape. Although my less intense or strong eyebrow is not for everyone I thought it would be positive to see an alternative option to the strong eyebrows for those who want a simpler eyebrow look (see above).
So is it painful? I don’t tend to think so it is more uncomfortable but the wax is comfortably warm and the girls doing it are well trained, reassuring and make sure you have no issues. After doing the first brow they check the shape and look to make sure you are happy and then get started on matching them up. After waxing a final tidy up is done with tweezers before soothing with an Aloe Vera solution which is cooling and pleasant. And the final bonus thing is they can cover that unsightly redness from waxing with Benefits Boing, which is a service you don’t get elsewhere.
Have you got caught up in the Benefit Eyebrow storm, have you tried any of their brow products or poped by their brow bar? Let me know in the comments.

Review: Veet Face Precision Wax and Care

Veet_Face_Precision_Wax

Hi guys, a slightly different type of review today with a focus on hair removal, well all do it but never seem to talk about it. After recommendation from my boyfriends sister of a DIY eyebrow fix and I thought I’d do a mini review, just incase some of you were interested.

The pack comes with a tube which contains the wax which has a lip gloss tip applicator and after care cream on the other side, a spatula and a pack of strips to help with removal. basically everything you may possibly ever require for hair removal. It can be used on for your eye brows lips or chin depending on you problem area and just take a few simple steps for hair removal. I’ve only used it for eyebrows so far so I can only review from that point of view.

So using it is fairly straight forward, simply boil the kettle and fill a mug with boiling water and leave for 1 minute and the wax melts. Then you simply decide what area you want, separate the hairs out if needs be and apply the wax and then place over the strip. The wax applicator is like a plastic lip gloss applicator which works so nicely at spreading out the wax and is amazingly accurate. Press down the strip, wait a second and pull! It didn’t really hurt I was amazing and managed to pull out a good amount of hair. I repeated it a few times, the only thing it didn’t work well at is shorter hairs but it does say in the instructions that it is less effective on hairs that are under 5mm, which is a disclaimer and it does do shorter hairs. Yet you may need to pull out the tweezers for a final bit of touch up, which isn’t that much effort. Ones your gone simply wash off any residue and apply the after care lotion, pretty straight forward really.

The strips you could probably cut in half, but there are 20 in a pack so will probably last ages anyway. It does say you can was them, and then if you leave them to dry you can reuse them but I feel as though it is more effort then its worth as there is plenty in the pack and you can buy just packs wax stripes that you can cut down accordingly. There is an adequate supply in the pack though so I think it is probably fine.

It worked so much better than I thought it would which is amazing, I definitely would recommend trying it if you want an at home facial hair solution.

Love
