I had my a Brow Wax session in Benefit PH at SM Megamall. It is Benefit's signature brow arch service which costs Php 700.00 (up to Php1,900 depending on what services you'd like to avail).
I had an eyebrow microblading and microshading session done last June 2017 but after more than a year, 80% of it has already faded. There is still some shade left that still gives my brows some shape but of course, I still need to use makeup to fill it up to make it look polished. You may also notice that my brows look bushy with stray hairs around. On the right photo, you can see a more polished brows.
What Celine did was waxed the stray hairs to give my brows a nice shape. Afterwards, she used Benefit brow makeup products to beautify them.
First, the eyebrow area will be cleansed and sanitized.
Second, markings will be drawn around your brows to achieve the perfect arc.
Third, Benefit Cosmetics exclusive eyebrow wax (not for sale), will be applied on the stray hairs before pulling them away with a waxing paper strip.
Fourth, their exclusive Aloe Soothing Gel will be applied on the waxed area to minimize redness, pain, and itchiness.
Fourth, the gel will be wiped outand let the skin dry.
Fifth, eyebrows will be groomed and filled in. You may choose a look that you want either feathered brows or contoured brows.
Before the procedure, it is a must to keep your eyebrow area clean and makeup-free. A brow wax session could be painful for some but for me it only felt like a tingle, no big deal. In a score of 1-10, I rate the pain level a score of 4. It could be that I have a high pain threshold or maybe I got used to shaving and plucking my eyebrows in the past.
After the brow wax session, you have to wait for 4-6 hours before washing the eyebrow area with soap and water.
- Reasonable price for Php700 (recommended once a month)
- Waxing session wasn't painful for me at all
- Well-groomed and perfectly shaped brows fit for my face was achieved
- I like that Celina taught me how to use eyebrow products properly to achieve this brow for everyday look.
If you do not know how to fix your brows yourself or you want to learn which eyebrow shape fits you well, yes.
What makes it different than the other brow waxing service that I tried was in Benefit, they assess your face shape and the natural shape of your brows before waxing it. They make sure that it fits you well first before anything else.
