Whenever I tint my brows I am reminded of my grandmother. She used to tint her eyebrows using RefectoCil. One morning she slapped some tint on her brows and carried on with her day. She completely forgot about the dye sitting on her brows until lunch time. That is when my grandfather gave her a very peculiar look and asked “now aren’t you going to take that stuff off your brows?”. This story always gives me a chuckle! RefectoCil is now available in a new range, RefectoCil Sensitive.

About RefectoCil

Being a world leading brand since 1930,  RefectoCil is prominently represented in more than 65 countries. RefectoCil eyelash and eyebrow tints have been proven and recognised due to millions of successful applications as the leading product for more than 70 years.

RefectoCil Sensitive

RefectoCil Sensitive is the first series of eyelash & eyebrow tints based on plant extracts that is 100% natural and is especially suitable for those with sensitive skin. Available in 4 colour shades: Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, and Light Brown.

I have a battle with eczema in my eyebrows and I was very excited to give this a try. I always tint my brows at home and who doesn’t love trying out new products? I had to wait a bit for the tint I had to fade so I could give this product a go.

Packaging and Product

RefectoCil comes with two tubes . The one tube is the colour and the other one is the activator. Both tubes has a convenient nozzle that allows you to easily squeeze out just the right amount to mix together. Apply the Tint – Leave for 2 mins – Wipe off – Apply the Gel.


I didn’t experience any burning or discomfort on my skin and my skin wasn’t tinted either. The product wiped off really easy.

Pricing and Suppliers

You can find a list of suppliers over on the RefectoCil website. They are also available on takealot as combos for R200. Just type RefectoCil into the search box.

This sounds really cool! I’ve never tinted my brows before but I think it would look really good.
