EcoTools Recycled Brow Kit: A Review

Shape up and get tidy with the Recycled Stainless Steel Safety Scissors and Recycled Stainless Steel Mini Tweezers. Pluck and trim using earth-friendly resources: The Bamboo & Lead-Free 5x Mirror ensures that not a single hair goes unnoticed. This mirror is both chic and practical.

The Bamboo, Taklon & Recycled Aluminum Angled Brow Brush easily reaches every nook and cranny, guaranteeing even and natural application of brow makeup. Gently comb through brows with the Bamboo, Taklon & Recycled Aluminum Spoolie Brush for a perfectly polished finish. Both brushes feature animal-free taklon bristles (made of soft and pliable synthetic hair), and a metallic ferrule made from recycled aluminum cans. You can bet your bottom dollar your brows have never looked better!

The ecoTOOLS Recycled Brow Grooming Set is housed in a reusable pouch and printed with non-toxic ink, utilizing resources that minimize the negative impact on the environment. The Recycled Brow Grooming Set retails for $9.99. Visit for a full list of retailers.

I’ve had the chance to try this set, and just like the EcoTools brushes, these are very well-made inclements that are not only earth-friendly, but friendly on the pocketbook as well.

My favorite piece in the set is the angled brow brush. The hairs are thin and stiff, and are just perfect for applying brow powder on the brows to accentuate and sculpt. It also doubles as an eyeliner brush because the edge is really fine, giving you great control. The spoolie is great for travel as it is short-handled, but it effectively grooms the brow hairs, providing a polished look. The safety scissors work great to trim extra-long brow hairs. Of course, the pair of tweezers is the staple tool. It’s shorter than I would have liked it to be, but it is great for travel. It is amazingly sharp as well, so it really picks and pulls hair effectively. The travel mirror is a pleasant addition so I don’t have to scrounge around for a mirror in my purse. This should be a staple in every makeup kit, overnight bag or travel tote. The affordable price is the proverbial icing on the cake. You can avail of this brow kit via selected Walgreens drugstores and ULTA boutiques, and other beauty and drugstores.

Other than the short handle of the tweezers, I don’t have any complaints regarding this kit. If you don’t have this kit yet (it debuted last month in time for Earth Day), I am giving my international readers a chance to own this kit. My next entry will provide an entry form which shall allow you to enter the Ecotools Recycled Brow Kit giveaway. Stay tuned!
