A popular eyebrow gel has been recalled from Australian shelves after the ACCC announced it may be contaminated with bacteria.
Benefit Cosmetics’ best-selling Gimme Brow Eyebrow Gel is sold at retail giants Myer and Sephora and, if coming into contact with eyes, could lead to eye irritation.
A statement on Benefit Cosmetics’ website recommended anyone who had purchased the product been January and October 26 this year should stop using the product immediately and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we are initiating a recall of our Gimme Brow product after discovering that recent batches of the product did not meet our stringent quality standards,” the statement read.

“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.”
According to the ACCC, the offending product was also sold at Adore Beauty, Princess Polly, Skincare Store and Amuse Beauty Studio.
