Okay, so we’ll start off with a little background first. I used to have really, thick eyebrows back before I began plucking and threading them. Fast forward to the present, my brows are okay, they’re not anorexic or anything, but I do wish that they were a bit thicker. But what I’m really concern about, it I think they my eyebrows are now too far apart. So in order to get my brows a little bit closer together and a bit thicker, I’ve put away my tweezers and cancelled my standing threading/waxing appointments and busted out various brow growth enhancing products (which I’ll review later). So here’s the conundrum, I want to let my eyebrows go ungroomed and I did for awhile, but I don’t want to look like a hot mess when I go out – yes I’m a bit vain. I couldn’t tweeze and risk damaging the hair follicles, so I figured razor blade should do the trick. My friend’s dad used to say that we shouldn’t tweeze our brows, and to use a razor blade instead since one day fuller brows might come back in vogue – I really should have listened…sigh.
I picked up a pack of Ardell Brow Trim & Shape Grooming Tool hoping that it would be the answer to my prayers. The price is great – it’s cheap, you gotta love that. The colors are fun and pretty. The easy grip handles are great. The only bad thing about them, though, would have to be that their blades are dull – too dull to be effective. And really, the whole point of the product is to remove hair, but the blades are so dull that they can’t properly cut the hair. It’s really too bad, the product would have rocked if only the blades were sharp.
