I wanted to love this clear gel. I bought it mainly for my brows but I’ve also been using this for my lashes. It makes my lashes clump together so I have to comb it through to ensure its being evenly spread. As for formulation there are some good ingredients in here for thickening and moisturizing the lashes. But I’m not sure why Lavera felt this product needed alcohol because it takes away from the moisturizing ingredients. Scent-wise, there is a very light, almost herbal smell to this clear gel which can be used as a mascara or brow groomer. It has a double ended brush for both lash and brow (see image below). The only thing I don’t like about the smell is that I can smell the alcohol in it. The mascara is clear, and feels cool going on my lashes. I won’t be repurchasing this product again. It doesn’t do much for my lashes and brows so I would rather spend $20.00 on something else.
