Billion Dollar Brows is a salon that offers treatments for brows and lashes. According to their website, they “live and breathe beautiful brows.” They also sell a line of products so that everyone can have full, natural brows. I tried out Brow Boost, which is a “deep conditioning treatment designed to help restore thin, over-plucked and undernourished eyebrows.” One tube should last a month and, within that month, you should start seeing results. They also tell you to avoid the urge to tweeze.
I used Brow Boost for thirty days on the left side only. I didn’t tweeze either side. After 30 days, there was no discernible difference. Both sides are fuller, presumably because I wasn’t tweezing them, but the left side was no fuller than the right.
Billion Dollar Brows claims the product stimulates growth. It contains an assortment of thickeners, preservatives and humectants, which are all typically found in a product like this. It also contains “saw palmetto lipidic sterolic” and “saw palmetto berry extract.” Saw palmetto is a popular herbal treatment that is used to treat both hair loss and Hirsutism (unwanted hair growth) caused by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It’s also used to treat male pattern baldness. It does all of this by blocking the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestoserone, which inhibits hair production. Some studies have shown that it can be effective when taken orally but there’s no evidence that it has the same affect when applied topically.
Brow Boost sells for 19.95, which is much less than many competing products, but you’ll get better results simply by not tweezing. If you’re unhappy with the shape of your brows, invest in a visit to a salon and have them shaped professionally. Exfoliating the brow area will make waxing or tweezing less painful. There’s an array of products (pencils, waxes, powders) available for filling in and shaping your brows. If you take the time to learn how to apply them properly, you can have full, natural looking brows and you won’t have to wait 30 days to see the results.
