M2 Brows is really easy to use – it comes in a mascara-type tube and you just apply the serum onto your brows once a day, every day using the lip gloss-type wand inside, which makes it really easy to apply exactly where you want it. For best results, M2 Brows recommends doing this before going to bed once you have removed your make up so that’s what I did.
M2 Brows says you will see results within 4-6 weeks, and that was true for me, although I would say it takes longer to see full results (more on that later). Week 4 was when I started to experience a noticeable difference – I could literally feel the eyebrows growing because the area was ‘buzzing’ and a bit itchy.
Between week 4 and week 6 they grew A LOT. At one point I suddenly felt nervous of how much they would grow! Silly I know, but it made me realise how different your face can look if you change your eyebrow shape. Week 5 was when I felt most frustrated – they had grown a lot but there were some big gaps where they hadn’t yet grown at all and I really did look silly. But as long as they grow back, it will be worth it.
My personal experience is that it takes longer than 6 weeks for proper results. Even at week 7 just before I had them reshaped, you can see from my photo that my left brow still had a big gap in the middle where it was yet to grow – I felt so silly walking round like that! And the areas at the inner edge of both brows still have a long way to go. But by using M2 Brows it allowed me to get my eyebrows to a stage where it was possible to get them reshaped, and I will continue to use the serum in the gaps that are still there in the hope that they will eventually fully form. And now that I have an actual shape to work with, I can use a brow pencil in the meantime to fill in the gaps.
Balajit, the lovely woman who reshaped my brows at Shavata (you can read my full review of Shavata brow shaping here), told me that after 20 years of over-plucking I was lucky my eyebrows grew back at all, and I put that down to the wonder that is M2 Brows.
Overall verdict – it works! M2 Brows is very expensive at £130 but if you have over-plucked eyebrows it is worth the investment if you are prepared to also invest the time required, and are prepared to walk around with ridiculous looking brows while they grow sporadically over 6 weeks or more.
