FYI: Benefit Gimme Brow Recall
A few readers have asked about this, so I wanted to do a post. Benefit Cosmetics has voluntarily recalled their Gimme Brow brow gel. (This includes both full size and sample sizes.) According to Benefit, there should be no issues if you use it on your brows, but could lead to eye irritation if it comes in contact with the eyes. They recommend you stop using the product.
If you received it in a subscription box (we’ve seen it in Birchbox, Ipsy, Macy’s Beauty Box, and Play! by Sephora), I recommend contacting Benefit Cosmetics directly: [email protected], or you can try contacting the subscription box company, but it seems like readers are getting mixed results with that approach.
More from Benefit:
Benefit Cosmetics is committed to the highest levels of quality and doing what’s right for our customers. Out of an abundance of caution, we are initiating a voluntary recall of our Gimme Brow product after discovering that recent batches of the product did not meet our stringent quality standards.
If applied in its normal usage on the brows, the Gimme Brow product doesn’t involve any risk. However, if it comes into contact with the eyes, it could lead to eye irritation.
We recommend that you stop using the product. For a full refund of the Gimme Brow product, please return it to your original place of purchase. If you have additional questions contact us by email or phone:
- [email protected]
- +1-800-252-9218 (in the U.S. or Canada)
- +1-317-449-2302 (US Toll number for international calls)
We sincerely regret the inconvenience this recall may cause.
