Monday Must Have’s:Benefit Brow Bar

Hello World. It’s been a minute since my last Monday Must Have review but let’s Break Out a service review shall we .

If you attended my last Women in Business Cuppa for Cansa, which you can read about here, you would have received a Benefit Cosmetics voucher entitling you to a brow wax & tint in the goody bag.

I’ve never been before so I decided to use it before it expired and made my way to the Benefit Brow bar in Edgars Waterfront this past weekend.

I met with brow expert Waseema Kippie who sat me down & talked me through the process .

First she cleant my brows and then she tinted it. The tint takes two minutes before its removed.

Before just going in and waxing my brow she used this nifty little device to do a brow mapping which determines the shape my brow should take . She then tested the wax on the palm of my hand to make sure I was comfortable with the temperature and proceeded to apply wax starting with my unibrow.

I’ve been waxing for a few years and not a word of a lie when she pulled the wax strip off it didn’t hurt as it usually does and I’m convinced it’s because of the strip which felt satiny smooth .

After the waxing was done and my brows neatened she then went in with the Benefit Fool proof brow powder and Gimme Brow gel to keep it in place . She also used concealer to tidy up which I thought was the cherry on top of the rainbow cake because after waxing I go extremely red and walk around with these patches convinced people are looking at me like I’m from another planet.

 

The service I received was not only professional but it was such a pleasurable experience. Waseema asked me if I was okay throughout my session and we chatted like we had known each other for years . I am so impressed and know this is where I’ll be getting my brows did from now on.

The tint and wax take approximately 20 minutes and will set you back R280.00/21 USD /16 GBP. If you just want a wax it will be R155.00 /12 USD /9 GBP. Worth every penny in my opinion.

As always thank you for reading , I hope you enjoyed this review, let me know in the comment section below. And as the saying goes “Remember great eyebrows don’t happen by chance. They happen by appointment.” All my love F x
