The Rose Inc Renew Enriched Clear Shaping Gel became my first ever Rose Inc product, and it was almost a failure for me. Today’s review is all about it.
Rose Inc Renew Enriched Clear Shaping Gel claims and ingredients
Rose Inc Renew Enriched Clear Shaping Gel is a gel serum that shapes, tames and holds unruly brows. The product also nourishes brows and promotes healthy growth with hydrating and strengthening ingredients like squalane, pea sprouts, and vitamins E and B5.
Ingredients list: Water/Aqua/Eau, Cetearyl Alcohol, Bentonite, Glycerin, Squalane, C13-15 Alkane, Sodium Polyitaconate, Isomalt, Gluconolactone, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Lauroyl Lysine, Pisum Sativum (Pea) Sprout Extract, Panthenol, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Phytate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Benzoate, Xanthan Gum, Jojoba Esters, Citric Acid
This gel has a hybrid makeup-brow care formula that contains renewing ingredients, such as glycerin, squalane and panthenol for moisturizing, vitamin E for protection against free radicals, pea sprout extract and sunflower oil for nourishment and conditioning. While the candelilla and carnauba waxes are responsible for taming and holding the brows.
Packaging and texture
*Note – I have a travel-version of the product
I adore the aesthetic of Rose Inc products, and the packaging of this brow gel is no exception. The tube is plastic, in a pretty greyish-pink shade. And the brush is classic fluffy, quite large and a little clunky, but I have a transparent version of this gel, so the brush size doesn’t bother me too much. Although, if the gel was pigmented (Rose Inc has tinted brow gels as well), with such a large brush, you would have to be more careful not to stain the skin around the eyebrows.
The texture of product is gel-ish and though the gel looks white on the brush, it is transparent and completely invisible when applied to the eyebrows. And, unlike some other clear gels, this one doesn’t leave a white cast, even when layered on.
Before applying brow gels, I usually shape brows with a pencil, so it’s important for me that the gel doesn’t move previously applied products. And Rose Inc Renew Enriched Clear Shaping Gel neither lifts off the pencil nor does it make the brows lighter.
And for me, unfortunately, this is the only thing that I like about this brow gel (besides leaving no flakes). The gel hardens the brows just a bit, but does not hold, lift, set their shape or add definition at all. Therefore, the eyebrows look almost the same whether with or without this gel applied. So, using this gel as a brow care product might be ok, but it’s not an option to tame the brows.
To sum up, I wouldn’t recommend this gel and wouldn’t buy it again.
The brow gel is priced at £19.50 and is available at:
