Review: 100% Pure and Organic Castor Oil

Hello, Lovely Ladies!

Review: 100% Pure and Organic Castor Oil | by The Graceful Mist (

I`ve always wanted fuller-looking brows without bothering to fill them in with brow powder. I first found out about this eyebrows and eyelashes product when I was checking out of Mercury Drug Store. It was quite affordable compared to the castor oil brow thickening products I've tried like Luxe Organix: Castor Oil Eyelash and Brow Growth Serum (which costs around Php 109.00 at Watsons) or seen in most beauty stores which is why I gave it a try.
