Are you suffering from the effects of the '90s over-plucked eyebrow trend? We feel you.
Thicker eyebrows are all the rage these days, but a past of furiously plucking brows into barely-there-lines can inevitably take its toll on anyone. It should also be mentioned that tweezers and excessive waxing should come with a warning label against teenage those haphazard beauty experiments we have all tried, because it can actually take years for bald spots to grow back after overzealous waxing/tweezing sessions.
It's time to retire those tweezers and brow pencils because believe it or not, there are actually other ways to bring thinned out brows back to life.
We've rounded up the best eyebrow growth serums on the market—from drugstore scores to luxurious, high-end brands.
Ahead are eleven eyebrow serums to try if you want your old brows back.
But, before you buy, the key to finding the right lash serum is to look for ophthalmologist- and dermatologist-tested formulas, and to double-check the serum is filled with organic, safe, and natural ingredients. Because if you don't, you could experience some not-so-good side effects like irritation or possibly even allergic reactions to some products.
In addition, the formulas we should look for typically include proteins and peptides that can stimulate the growth of follicles without causing harm.
Each one of these gems promises to give you fuller, thicker, healthier-looking brows in as little as a few weeks, while also protecting them against damage and breakage. Plus, most of the following products can work wonders for your lashes, giving them a boost in length and fullness comparable to that of false lashes. Interested? We thought so.
