Does This Instagram 'Soap Hack' Really Give You Fuller Brows?

Given that the eyebrows can make or break your makeup look, it’s no surprise that many of us spend a fortune grooming them. Waxing, tinting, threading, tattooing, making them grow…it’s almost a full-time job! So, when we heard that beauty bloggers and Instagrammers were using soap to fill in their brows, we were all ears!
The premise is simple — you grab a dry, run-of-the-mill household soap, run a slightly damp spoolie through it and comb your brows in the direction you want them to go in (usually upwards) The result? Those full, fluffy, Cara Delevigne-esque brows everyone is obsessed with at the moment.

Sounds great, right? Especially since bar soap is insanely cheap and something most people already have lying around the house. But does it actually work? I decided to try it out myself.

The verdict

I’m not really a ‘soap’ person (don’t worry, I’m not a total grub — I just prefer my vanilla scented body wash), so I used my boyfriend’s shaving soap. Sorry, babe! The beauty bloggers say to use Pears soap, but I’d argue that you could use pretty much any white soap.
The first time I tried it, I forgot the all-important ‘wet the spoolie’ step, so it did bugger all. But when I gave it a go the second time (with my slightly damp but not wet spoolie), this happened:

Yep, it definitely gave me that ‘on fleek but also borderline Groucho Marx’ look. Personally, I prefer the first, less separated look (it helps that I’d had my brows tinted and shaped the day before). It also made my brows feel a little stiff. But different strokes (literally) for different folks, I guess! And honestly guys, this hack is so cheap and easy that you have nothing to do lose giving it a go!
