I've battled with my eyebrows for as long as I can remember, I use to have the shape that resembled sperm (don't laugh, it was once a trend) and then when big brows came in I had a nightmare trying to grow them back out. It's been an eventful brow journey and I can safely say I'm at a place where I am happy with my brows and that's all down to the Parissa Brow Shapers.
In the past I've tweezed my brows, had them threaded at various places and been to a salon for HD brows and although I've always been happy with the results, I don't like the inconsistency. Sometimes I leave the salon with an arch higher or one brow shorter in length than the other and I've noticed it's made for wonky brows when applying my make up.
I've tried products from Veet and Nair and found that they just stick to your skin without pulling away any hair so I immediately assumed these would be the same but I can confess, I was wrong. In the pack you receive 16 double sided small wax strips, instructions and a vial of post epilation oil (a nice touch). You cut the strips to size depending on how much of an area you're wanting to wax, I kept them the same length and just cut down the clear plastic for easier removal. I rubbed them in-between my fingers to warm them up and then simply apply them onto the area you're wanting to wax following the direction of hair growth, press down so the wax is stuck well onto the hair and pulling the skin taut with the opposite hand, remove the wax strip in the opposite direction of hair growth. Quickly.
The strips removed all the stray hair on both eyebrows which really blew me away, like I said before I'm so used to them not working it was such a surprised when I got results. Because they're so small it's easy to define your arch or even wax the beginning of your brow to create that sharp line we see so often on Instagram. I was able to wax both brows using around 4 double sided strips waxing under the brow, around the arch and in between my eyebrows. The post epilation oil is a dry oil which removes any trace of stray wax and really helps sooth the waxed area, don't be put off by the colour, you don't end up resembling a smurf after using it.
These are inexpensive and a great alternative if you can't afford to go to the salon or you prefer being able to manage your brows at home. They retail for around £8.79 at Boots and I'll definitely be repurchasing when I run out, I can see myself using these in the future instead of heading to the salon. After the success with the Brow Shapers I can't wait to try more from Parissa.
