Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel


Keeping my skin clean and clear definitely is my priority compared to dolling up my face. Not to say I don't use make-up, I only do when occasion calls for. Nonetheless, even for a non glamorous outing, generally I like to feature my eyes. For that, instead of buying a mascara to add to my existing collection, when I bought the Vitamin C Reviving Duo, this brow and lash gel was also included - indeed a dual purpose product to hold eyebrows in place and to define the natural lashes. To apply this gel, I curl my lashes prior, then wriggle the wand back and forth in the tube to pick the gel up and swipe over my lashes. A single coat of this gel does not make much difference to enhance my lashes, so I apply at least another coat. 
 
For special occasions, I use this gel as base/under coat before applying mascara. Because of that, upon using it for a couple times, the colorless and odorless gel has become brownish-black. Except for the changes in colour, the gel still does not irritate or tear up my eyes and -   

The gel is is not shiny and is nice for a natural look. 
It does define and slightly shape my lashes and as said earlier, perhaps because I curl my lashes before applying.
It is dermatologically and opthalmoloigcally tested.
Similar to all Body Shop products, it is cruelty free.
Price of this gel is somewhat reasonable. 

Having said that, 
It does not hold for long - just 3 hours the most. 
The sticky and formula will take a while to dry up upon contact with the lashes.
The gel does not lengthen neither thicken the lashes.
The plastic packaging with a metal cap and rim will rub away and leave patchy plastic behind. 
Body shop brow and lash gel is to certain extent does enhance my lashes for a natural look but for the time being, I have not decided if I will repurchase it again.

  4. Confession...I am petrified to use a lash curler! And it does not help that I have short lashes.

    Will check out the lash gel. I wonder whether its OK for me to use it as is. I avoid mascaras unless I absolutely have too because it always smears making me look like a panda. Not a product fault..I just have a habit of rubbing my eyes:P
