Have you ever experienced lash envy? Well, that ends today!
Eyelash serums may seem the stuff of legends but these potent, clinically proven elixirs applied above the lash line are the fastest, safest pathway to growing the glorious, lush, natural lashes you’ve always dreamed about.
When we talk to people about lash serums, we’re continually asked two questions: What do lash serums do? And do they work? Our answers are “Yes!” and “Yes!”.
So we thought it was time we delved into this hot topic in greater detail and share with you some of the best eyelash serums on the market that you can get your hot little hands on today.
Lash serums deliver stronger, thicker, resilient lashes, reduce breakage, strengthen eyelash roots at the dermis, and create a defined lash line, with some adding length, density and even curl. Some even repair and condition damaged and brittle lashes. Basically, they’re fast-acting growth serums designed to boost and fortify your lustrous lashes - with some even doubling eyelash length.
Each solution varies in its ingredient lists but most deliver shine and condition to lashes thanks to scientifically proven ingredients. These include proteins such as keratin, amino acids from lupins and silk - known to accelerate the growth process - hyaluronic acid - to moisturise lashes - vitamins A, C, E, H and B5, arginine, madecasside, filloxane, minerals, and nutrient-dense, pure antioxidant botanical extracts.
Other potent-acting, nourishing and revitalizing ingredients are polypeptides, biotin, soluble collagen, panthenol, caffeine, wheat germ, saw palmetto, soybean oil, grape stem cell, ginko biloba leaf, carica papaya fruit extract, almond extract, and pumpkin seed extract.
In your research, you need to look for safety, value for money, how quickly you’ll see results - usually 2-6 weeks - and seek out reputable brands known to produce premium products.
Bottom line is yes, they work, but you need to find the product that works for you.
As with any eye lotions and potions it’s critical that you invest in high quality brands with impeccable track records. At best dud products just won’t work. At worst they could harm the sensitive skin around your eyes, or result in lashes falling out.
Cheap products contain unnecessary chemicals that not only don’t work, they are merely fillers in the final product blend. Others contain nasties that have shown to cause severe reactions from iris and eyelid discolouration, eyelid droop, watery eyes, blurriness, irritation, stinging, itching, and in some instances infection.
Ingredients to avoid are parabens, silicones, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, mineral oils and fragrances. Tread with caution, too, in using prostaglandin and prostaglandin analogs, used in glaucoma treatment, that are not safe for use during pregnancy, breastfeeding or when undergoing chemotherapy. Chlorphenesin is another controversial ingredient that may cause some side effects such as irritation and iris discolouration.
This is the best part: it’s so easy! Daily application, usually after your nightly skincare cleansing routine, is the simplest and fastest way to see and maintain voluminous lash growth and healthy conditioning.
Lash serum products application vary, from a fine, soft-bristled brush (similar to liquid eyeliner) to enable precise application, a conditioning wand to apply direct to lashes similar to mascara application, or a serum dropper.
Skin must be clean, dry and makeup-free for effective application, and while some products can be applied to both the upper and lower lash lines, a patch test is recommended as some lower lash application can cause redness and irritation to the delicate skin below the eyes.
Avoid oil-based eye makeup removers while you’re undergoing the lash growing process as some impact the potency of serums.
Enjoy the confidence and compliments your newfound long, lush natural lashes bring!
