My lashes…where did they go? I mean, I have had short lashes throughout my life, but they seem to have diminished over the years. I am always having to use mascara to make my lashes look longer and fuller. I also worry about whether the mascara is going to flake off, clump up, or if my eyes are going to sting when it comes time to remove it at the end of the day. I really want to find a product that is natural that will help extend and thicken my lashes. In a previous post, I was asked to give the RapidLash Eyelash and Brow Enhancing Serum a try to see if this product would help me out in my lash request.
The formula RapidLash uses is an innovative HEXATEIN® 1 COMPLEX which is made up of six highly effective ingredients (polypeptides, biotin, panthenol, amino acids, soybean oil and pumpkin seed extract). It is specifically made to condition, moisturize and strengthen lashes to help stimulate lash and brow growth. Rapid Lash is also ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested, paraben and fragrance free, not tested on animals, and is safe to use for those who wear eye contacts!
I tested this enhancement serum over the period of four weeks to see if I could start to see a difference in the length and the thickness of my lashes. Here is what my lashes looked like before using RapidLash.
I found that using RapidLash was REALLY simple! It is recommended that you use this product once a day at the same time every day. I decided to use RapidLash every night after I put the kids to bed since this is one of the constant parts of my daily schedule. The serum comes in a mascara-shaped container, so it is light, and easy to bring it along with you to use should you need to travel. The applicator wand was fabulous! It is small, thin and flexible. All I had to do was untwist the applicator from the bottle, wipe it along my lash line from the inside out, then replace the applicator wand back into the bottle to use another day. It was so quick and easy. It also dries fast, so I did not have to worry about wiping it off shortly after applying it.
Okay, the results are in…TADA!!!!!!
For me, I will say that, after four weeks of use, I noticed that my lashes did get longer. I am not sure if I can see a difference in their thickness, though. I can actually see my lashes without having to have my face inches away from the mirror. When wearing mascara during this period of time, I found that I did not have to wear as much mascara as I did at the end of this test than I did at the beginning. Since it takes about four to six weeks for results to occur and each bottle lasts about 2 ½ months, I will continue to use it to see if my lashes grow longer or become thicker.
Here are some other great facts I want to share about the RapidLash Eyelash and Brow Enhancing Serum:
• There are no drug ingredients in the formulation
• There are no ingredients in the formulation that will manipulate an iris or change eye color
• Sensitive skin users can apply every other night to let their skin acclimate and then eventually apply once in a 24 hour period on clean dry skin (Directions say to apply in the evening when people generally cleanse their skin, however, if someone wants to apply in the morning, that is fine so long as it is on clean, dry skin).
• Make up, creams and other cosmetics can be applied after RapidLash has been applied.
• When no longer using RapidLash, lashes will not be lost. They will eventually revert back to what they looked like before using the product.
• RapidLash will not affect permanent make- up (i.e. tattooed eye liner/brow lines).
Overall, I enjoyed using the RapidLash Eyelash and Brow Enhancing Serum. The container and the applicator are small and easy to use, applying the serum to my lash line was quick and easy, it dries fast so it stays on after it is applied, and my lashes have begun to grow. I can’t wait to see what will happen with continued use of this product.
