One of the slightly bothersome traits I inherited from my Filipina grandmother is the "thin eyebrow" gene. Seriously, my eyebrows are so sparsely peppered with hair…and the hair I DO have is very fine, so it ends up being virtually invisible. I began to get frustrated even filling them in because I often felt like I had to draw in brows where where hair was especially scarce (the inner 1/4 of my brows). After an hour of scouring the web, I came upon the Anastasia Brow Enhancing Serum ($45 at Sephora). After just a week and a half, I noticed significant thickening in my brows, as well as wayyyy more hairs growing in that troublesome inner 1/4. I decided the best way to keep track of the effect of this product was to take pictures regularly.
Here is the product description from Anastasia:
"The serum for healthier, fuller-looking brows. Our advanced pentapeptide chain, comprised of 5 peptides at 10%, has been clinically proven to encourage the growth of thicker, longer- looking hair in 100% of trial subjects. With regular twice-daily use, achieve fuller, longer, and more youthful-looking brows with less breakage."
My regimen has been to put the serum on my eyebrows at night (I used to do it in the morning, too, but it would kinda flake up as I tried to do my brows with my brow powder.) One really annoying thing about the packaging, though, is that after a few uses, the cap doesn't seem to go on all the way. Super strange..,
In any case, at $45 I want to make sure this stuff TRULY works, so I will be keeping track!
