Thicker, Fuller Brows in One Simple Step

I know that Earth Day is over, but I just can’t stop obsessing about creative ways to repurpose our products. One of my staple M&S items that I can’t live without is our Cleansing Oil and not just because I have dry skin or that I love that way that it removes make up. Those things are true but my main focus today is something else entirely.
Many people don’t realize that our Cleansing Oil features a multi-functional ingredient that often doesn’t get its due: Castor Oil. In terms of skincare, castor oil heals inflamed skin due to its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, fades blemishes, improves skin texture by softening and smoothing out imperfections and the fatty acids in castor oil can also promote the growth of healthy skin tissue, making it helpful in restoring uneven skin tones. If all that wasn’t enough, castor oil is also used to promote hair growth. Known to be super high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids, the oil helps to nourish and moisturize hair follicles while also triggering hair growth from dormant follicles.
But what does hair growth have to do with your face care routine? Arguably, next to your skin itself, a very important feature to most of us ladies, are our eyebrows. The thicker, fuller, eyebrow trend is not showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon and besides, no matter how you like to shape your eyebrows, its always nice to have more hair to be able to work with to achieve the desired look. Where does the Cleansing Oil come in? Well, its probably not enough to just cleanse with the oil to achieve any kind of hair growth benefit from the castor oil. A great pro-tip is after you’ve cleansed your face for the night, apply our cleansing oil to your eyebrows (I do this with a Q-tip) and leave on overnight. Do this for several weeks before seeing a noticeable result.
For me, this is how I keep my eyebrows healthy, strong, full and thick but it also helps that I have dry skin so cleansing oil will always be a part of my routine because my skin just craves the oil and really benefits from it. But even if you’re not cursed with dry skin, Cleansing Oil is a great, nourishing first step to remove make up and then follow up with a gentle face wash like our lemon rose face wash.

However you cleanse your face at night, applying castor oil, especially in an already nutritive blend of oils such as our Cleansing Oil product, is a natural beauty trick that you’ll be sure to love the results of!
