safe looking brown pencils

brows

we’ve recently had a bunch of clients having trouble clearing up in or around their eyebrows, and we’ve linked it to cloggy brow pencils.  we did a quick search and after a visual + comedogenic search box look, here are some promising brands (some contain ingredients rated a 1 or 2, like tocopherol or talc).

***please note that we have not tested these in-house, so we do not vouch for any of them at this time!

try them out and let us know how you like them, and if they keep your skin clear!
