Sephora’s “Benefit Brow Bar” Eyebrow Wax Review

Wikipedia says, “The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges of some mammals”.

They obviously have no idea how important these Eyebrows are for us women. Think about it, a badly done eyebrows can have the catastrophic effect on the prettiest of face, while a beautiful, perfectly arched, thick eyebrow can bring the focus on even the dullest pair of eyes. You may be sick, but your eyebrows can look fleek. Get my drift?

As a kid, I used to look my Mom sit by the bedroom window, with a mirror in one hand, and a tweezer in the other, patiently remove stray hair from her eyebrows, almost with a zen calm. She looked unaffected by the chaotic presence of me and my sibling, running around her. Her dedication, focused look into the mirror and precision of her finger-tips proficiently tweezing the unwanted hair out, grooming her eyebrows, is still etched in my mind. She still does her own eye-brows.

I on the other hand never even tried to do my own eyebrows. You see, I am from the times, when great beauty salons, started showing their presence, at every neighborhood. So, I have been getting my eyebrows threaded since I turned 18. Age to vote for perfect brows!

I am a makeup lover, hence Sephora is my hangout of sorts. We have this Sephora branch, on the JBR Beach, where I live, here in Dubai. So, I just walked in one day, and decided to get my Eyebrows waxed by the expert in the in-store,Benefit Brow Bar, at Sephora.

Luckily, I got the appointment right away and the lady attended to me with a big smile. I told her, I have sensitive skin and I have never waxed my eye-brows. She said, with a smile, you are going to enjoy this transformation.

So, to start with, I loved the cute retro salon kind of eyebrow grooming station. I loved the smile and confidence of the lady at work. She continued to be unaffected by my friend taking my picture for the blog, or by my little one screaming, right next to her legs, asking me, “Mommy! You hurt?”, “Mumma! Why Aunty putting stickers on you?” and Ooohhhs.. and Aaaahhhs..

In short, waxing my eyebrows was rather painless as compared to the threading torture I go through. My eyes were not red or puffy and I was pretty groomed up, in a very short span of time. What I also got done was “Eye Brow Tinting”, it was obviously painless, but personally to me, it didn’t add much value. I have nice dark colored eyebrows, so I guess, I didn’t need any tinting.

So, here’s the breakdown of my experience,

  • Appointment– Oh! So Quick! that’s because it was a weekday evening.
  • Service– Very friendly & efficient
  • Product used– Good. No side effects
  • Result– Very Satisfactory
  • Value for money– Definitely cost more than a regular salon, but worth it, if you want to give your eyebrows a makeover
  • Recommendation– I will go again. I recommend you try it out too.

Sharing with you some pictures of my experience, since they speak louder than words. Hope you like it.

Please like if you do. Please comment and let me know what do you do to groom your eyebrows, I am all ears.

Here’s to wonderful eyebrows. May they always be beautifully raised!

    it will be interesting to see a brown/ red on you with the same colour hair. This post of yours brings back the Indian classical dance performances I would do as a kid and so much emphasis on brow makeup. We use our brows to communicate too. #Expressions

    1. True.. You should do a feature on that

  2. How did I not know this was a thing?!? Also love that graphic about not knowing eyebrows would be so important. (:

  3. Haha, love your disclaimer! Your eyebrows look great! I can\’t do threading. Ugh. So much pain. Waxing hurts, but it\’s bearable. I just don\’t do it often enough. 😭

    1. Doesn\’t matter.. Thick eyebrows are in vogue. Do it once every few months and you will be fine!

  4. Love that Sephora has this option now and your disclaimer is awesome. Ha! I hope they give all of us free eyebrows next time! They look great 🙂

    1. Cheers to that. Sephora! You listening?

    your eyebrows looked good. how much was the waxing and tinting? I use to go for threading here in Dubai but for the past few years, I decided to grow my eyebrows out for a more fuller look.

    1. I paid AED 115 for waxing + Tinting + upper lips. Though I agree, grown eyebrows if well shaped looks wonderful

  6. Your eyebrows look great! Usually I wax my own eyebrows. I\’d like to see how it looks professionally done.Maybe by Sephora. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. Wow!!! You do? That\’s awesome
