Regrow and Strengthen Your Eyebrows & Lashes with Just One Ingredient!

Hey everyone!

I’ve mentioned in a previous post about the wonders of using Castor oil to promote hair growth.  After facing a traumatic bald spot in 2013, I began using castor oil and the results were tremendous!  From that moment on, I knew that castor oil would be a staple product in my beauty regimen.  You can read my post on how I used castor oil to regrow my thick beautiful tresses here.

Now, after months of experimenting, I am excited to share how I grew my eyebrows and lashes using castor oil!

I’ve always had very thin eyebrows and lashes.  They would fall out on site just by rubbing them (usually when removing make-up).  There were even times my eyebrows would fall out from simply brushing them.  It was so frustrating and so I decided to apply castor oil to both my eyebrows and lashes to help strengthen them, and to help them grow thicker.  Within 3 months I actually noticed results!  If you suffer from the same issues I did, I have a simple remedy for you!  Read further!

What to do:

  • Purchase these empty mascara tubes and pour the castor oil into the container.
  • Using the accompanying mascara brush, distribute the oil evenly on your eyebrows and lashes. (If you do not want to purchase the mascara tubes, no worries.  You can apply the castor oil to your eyebrows and lashes by simply using a Q-tip).
  • Make sure to apply the oil on a clean face every night and wash the oil off in the morning.

Below are pictures of the progress my eyebrows made.  Check it out!

Beauty Review: Skinnamon Body + Face Coffee Scrub


DSC_0380 (5)

I really get a kick out of creating my own beauty concoctions using natural ingredients.  However, once in a blue, I like to try other people’s healthy beauty products. I came across Skinnamon online and I was eager to try it out because the product is composed of ingredients that fit right in with my lifestyle!  Skinnamon Body + Face Coffee Scrub is an all natural product that promises to help you fight cellulite, stretch marks, eczema, acne and dry skin. Intrigued by all that the statement promised, I decided to test out the product.

Oh my goodness!  The smell of the fresh coffee bean is amazing! It made me want to eat it right out of the bag and I don’t even drink coffee!

I followed the directions, used the wooden spoon it came with and applied the product from the feet up, in a circular motion. I was very gentle with my face and lips and kept the product on for 5 minutes then rinsed it off with warm water ( I also did a final cool rinse – this is part of my beauty regimen but optional for you). Following my shower, I was introduced to much softer, radiant and dewy skin!

note* You might want to apply the product while in the bathtub as it can get a little messy.

This product left my skin super hydrated. I moisturized after the shower as directed but, I really felt like I could have skipped that step. The natural oils from this product permeated my skin without leaving my skin greasy.  It was just the perfect blend.  I normally have oily and acne prone skin, but this product helped balance the oil my skin naturally produces.
