Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel

Makeup and yours truly? What shall I say? Maybe I'm a minimalist when makeup is concern. Not the case when I was younger. Eye shadow, blusher and whatever else I fancied. But over the years, maybe a tiny bit of makeup, like lipstick or lip gloss, of course I love my face powder and I have this thing about emphasizing my lashes. Curled and dark lashes wouldn't you agree can wake up our eyes? If you are asking me, I so agree. Not in the context of thick layering of mascara, but a product which can do something of the same sort in a natural manner. Pretty much summing up the reason why I purchase this Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel (Body Shop Vitamic C Reviver Duo). Eyes again (La Colline Cellular Eye Mask)? Sincerely.   

Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel? A dual purpose product for holding eyebrows in place and to define natural lashes. Gel in texture and colorless. To use, you can prior prep your lashes by the support of  eye lash curler, which I will suggest and then, like you apply mascara, wriggle the wand into the tube and apply. A single coat really does not make much difference. So, I go over maybe twice or even three times.   
You can also apply this brow & lash gel as the base before you apply mascara. But believe me, maybe not a good idea, unless you don't mind, over time, you will notice that this odorless gel becoming cloudy. Like dark clouds. Something I am really fond of, of course, if you are okay with it, I shouldn't comment. What else should I say? I don't use it on my brows, so?

The appreciated side of Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel
Does not irritate neither tear me up.    
Non-shiny formula settling well for a natural look. 
Does define in lifting lashes.
Dermatologically and opthalmoloigcally tested.
Cruelty free product.

The other side of Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel
Does not hold for long. Maybe not even for 3 hours most to most.  
Sticky formula taking a while to dry up.
Does not lengthen neither thicken lashes.
Plastic packaging with metal cap and rim will rub away and leave patchy marks.  
If you have least expectation out of Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel, except for framing your lashes for a short span of time, like I have already told, 3 hours most to most, you will be satisfied. What about me? Oh-yes, to a certain extent, but whether I will buy again, that is a different matter all together.  


  1. Such a lovely product,Nava! Wonderful write-up! :)

  2. Nice to know something new. I am never in to makeup so don't no anything. Nice write up, i am learning a lot of new things...
    thanks Nava...

  3. This looks like a great product. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  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

  5. You write very well Nava I need to find that gel.

  6. You know what my daughter is into all these cosmetics, just the opposite of me. She is a die hard fan of cosmetics. Will ask her to visit you here.

  7. well done.

    I know about curler but didnt know there is gel for eyelashes too

  8. Nice review ! Now I have to find this gel!

  9. Seems like a great product Nava.. Will definitely check out the lash gel :-)

  10. I always have a soft corner for Body Shop products..They behave exactly as it is said on the back of the product :) I was searching for a good mascara as the Maybelline one I am using now clumps up my lashes as u said.. Thanks for the review Nava :)

  11. Tks for ur review...useful indeed. Wil check it out

  12. I never heard about this one, sounds really nice! :)

  13. Well written Nava. Somehow Bodyshop is a sucker when it comes to their lip and eye range in my opinion. Their Skin care products like butter, lotions and spa salts are better than these. probably they have to keep up with competitors. nevertheless, I would definitely choose their products in all ranges over the others.
