My eyebrows are pale in colour and look almost non-existent when I don’t put any products on them. That’s why I decided to try out a Dybrow kit and review it at the same time.
For the purpose of full disclosure – I chose and paid for the eyebrow kit myself. This is not an ad, but sales links included will be affiliate links.
I went for the dark brown colour because I wanted there to be a noticeable difference after I’d tinted my brows, but there are other colours available too.
Dybrow Review: What’s in the box?
Inside the box is a mixing tray that doubles up as packaging, a mixing stick, a spoolie brush, the dye and the dye’s activator. There should be enough for 12 applications, which for me would be about a year’s worth of product. Not bad for about a fiver!
There are also instructions which you should definitely read. The instructions recommend you do a patch test, which I didn’t bother with. Luckily I was fine, but even if you’ve had no problem with other dyes in the past, you really should do a skin test (I only learnt that afterwards when I was chatting about my experience.)
Dybrow Before and After
These are my patchy, pale eyebrows before I dyed them:
You have to mix the dye with the activator, then apply a barrier cream to your face before putting the dye on your brows. I think you’re supposed to use Vaseline for the barrier but I didn’t have any so used Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream.
Once I’d covered the skin around my eyebrows with the barrier cream, I applied the dye freehand. I used an angled brow brush then combed it through with the spoolie, leaving the tint to work its magic.
Dybrow – The Results!
Immediately after washing off the dye and barrier cream, I didn’t really notice that much of a difference. I don’t know if it was because while the dye was doing its magic, my eyebrows looked quite dark, but initially, I wasn’t sure much had changed.
The next day when I looked in the mirror I found that I could see my eyebrows a lot better. It’s been about 4 weeks since I first dyed my brows and although I was initially disappointed, I can definitely see a difference.
I’ll probably dye my brows again in a week or so, and I’m hoping to keep it up for the foreseeable future. The results seem to be similar to when I used to have my brows tinted in a salon.
If you’re thinking of trying this at home, I’d say it’s definitely worth giving it a go.
