Whether or not you’re one of the many people still facing the oh-so-sorry consequences of the Gwen Stefani-led tweeze fest of the 2000’s or genetically cursed with uneven and sparse eyebrows, reviews suggest that a few drops of this omega-packed oil may just be your saving grace.

Enter Castor Oil, an oil enriched with Vitamin E and omega-6 essential fatty acids known within the beauty community to encourage the growth of longer and stronger lashes. Now, many people are claiming that it can also help support the look of fuller brows. According to the purchasers of Amazon’s choice Ecla Oil Organic Cold-Pressed Castor Oil, you only need a few daily drops to see instant results.

“I purchased this for my boyfriend who virtually had no eyebrow hair. I kept telling him he'd have to apply it EVERY night for at least a few months before we would even see results, so not to get too excited. I was completely wrong because it's only been a couple of weeks and there is already a massive improvement! I'm very impressed with this product, and the brushes it comes with are super convenient,” says one five-star review.

“I have been using this product every night on my eyebrows and eyelashes for about 3 weeks now. I noticed my eyebrows starting to grow after about 4 days. After 2 weeks I have seen significant growth in my upper and lower lashes and my eyebrows have become thicker —they have been over plucked for 15 years. Eyebrows are still patchy in the areas that have new growth, but I think in a few more weeks, they will be thick and full. The product works great,” says another.

How? With either a small brush or spoolie, coat brows and lashes with two drops.

Sound too good to be true? As much as I’d love to say that this emollient is the ultimate solution for all your brow and lash needs, the other side of the spectrum says there still isn’t enough scientific evidence that could marry castor oil to its superpower hair growth claims.

While I haven’t used castor oil on my brows regularly enough to see hard, jaw-dropping results (I always forget), it does an impeccable job at reducing the look of under-eye circles. Dermatologically proven to stimulate the lymphatic system and blood circulation, castor oil is often used for improving pigmentation and cellulite. It also does wonders healing and reducing bacteria on wounds, acne and dermatitis (eczema).
