Whenever anyone asks me about my biggest beauty regret, my answer is always the same: over-waxing my eyebrows. When I was in the 8th grade, thin brows were in, and I wanted mine as thin as possible. That meant waxing, tweezing, and even shaving off way more hair than necessary, which left me with a constant surprised look on my face for years. Fast forward to now, and there isn't any product or treatment I won't try if it promises fuller-looking brows. (I'm even in the midst of researching eyebrow transplants.)

Over the years, my eyebrows have filled out a bit more, but they're still not exactly where I want them to be. I've tried serums and tints, but my brows have never returned to how thick and full they were back when I was 13. I use a brow pencil whenever I need to go out in public, but for years, I've dreamed of the day when I can leave the house with nothing on my eyebrows. When I heard about an "eyebrow mask" made from a plant extract known as "Usma eyebrow growing grass" by the Uyghur people in Northwestern China, I immediately wanted to test it out. Initially, I was skeptical since it's an all-natural product made with just three ingredients — usma extract, lye, and water — but since using it, I've been completely converted.

What I Like About the Nãzuk Usma Extract Eyebrow Mask

I've been using this eyebrow mask for a little over a month now, and I'm impressed with the results I've noticed. I honestly think I started to see a difference after just two weeks, especially when it comes to how my eyebrows feel to the touch. I could tell that they seemed softer and more hydrated, and although some growth serums leave my brow area dry and flakey, I noticed the opposite after using this product. Now, my eyebrows are noticeably darker, and I even have tiny hairs growing in areas that were completely sparse just a few months ago.

Also, although I'm no stranger to using products full of chemicals in the name of good eyebrows, I love that this mask only has three ingredients. The results have made me feel good about discontinuing use of other products because I know that this product — even though it's not filled with questionable ingredients — actually works.

How to Use the Nãzuk Usma Extract Eyebrow Mask

To use the formula, you first have to make it. The brand says you should start by mixing one tablespoon of dry Usma formula with one tablespoon of warm water into a bowl. From there, it suggests dipping a thin cotton swab into the "juice" and applying it to your eyebrows. After you've allowed it to dry, you should reapply it several times, letting it dry in between each application. Then, let the mixture sit for 30 minutes to fully absorb into your eyebrows. When the 30 minutes is up, wash off the product. The brand recommends repeating use daily or at least three times per week.

To reap the full benefits of this eyebrow mask, I've been using it daily. I like to apply it in the morning, before I shower and before I apply any skin-care products. I typically wear it while I'm working out so that I can multitask and I'm not just sitting around waiting for it to dry. I leave it on for 30 minutes, but occasionally I go a bit over if I'm doing a longer workout.

What to Consider Before Trying the Nãzuk Usma Extract Eyebrow Mask

One thing to note is that this product isn't the simplest to use. You essentially have to mix your own paste, and the process involves measuring. (I'm terrible with anything involving numbers.) Additionally, it's not something you can just put on before you go to bed at night since you have to reapply it multiple times and then wash it off after 30 minutes. All this to say, it does involve a time commitment when it comes to making the product and wearing the product. I found a way to easily add it into my routine, but it is something to consider before making a purchase.
