Ever wrestled with particularly unruly brow hairs only to come out of the tussle defeated? You’re not alone.
Thankfully, that’s why clear brow gels exist.
Tame the proverbial beast once and for all with these strong-hold clear brow gel formulas. We promise, they’ll have those arches shaped up in no time.

Traditional brow gels leave your arches looking a little flat? This pick is full of volume-boosting, plant-based microfibres that bulk up the fullness of brows. Plus, a blend of panthenol, biotinoyl tripeptide-1, hyaluronic acid, and trehalose that helps to condition and strengthen brow hair health.
