Whether or not you consider yourself a seasoned beauty pro, let’s face it, applying false lashes isn’t always a breeze. First, there’s the mess with measuring and glue, and there’s the struggle of applying each lash perfectly to match the other. And mascara alone can’t always do the trick either when it comes to giving you Bambi/doe-like fluttery lashes. Sound familiar? You might want to consider the help of a quality lash serum.
While organic castor oil has always been known to help promote the health of weak, fine brow hairs and lashes over time, specially formulated serums are designed to do just that plus strengthen and lengthen lashes in as little as two weeks. Econobum Eyelash Growth Serum, for one, is powered by polygonum and ginseng complex to gently give your lashes a boost in appearance. Backed up by more than 900 customer reviews on Amazon, with daily use of this nourishing serum, it’s said to increase the visibility of thicker lashes by 55 per cent in just six weeks. Plus, it’s gentle and safe to use on all skin types.
This serum is perfect for those who have straight and short Asian lashes or anyone who is recovering from the damaging aftermath of professional lash extensions and lash lifts. Best of all, the Econobum Eyelash Growth Serum is on sale right now for just $30!
SHOP IT: Amazon, $30 (originally $35)
“Glad I bought this lashes serum. I noticed the effect after three weeks of use. It’s easy to use which is a plus for me. I am on my second stick [tube of the serum] and still loving it. My friends and coworkers always notice my lashes, [and] they cannot believe its not fake lashes or the expensive lashes extension,” reads one five-star review.
“Before this serum, I had eyelash extensions for over a year which completely destroyed my eyelashes and left them short and sparse. Putting mascara on my eyelashes at that point just made my lashes look worse. I wish I took a before picture because after using the serum, I have grown new lashes that went there before and gained back my length,” echoes another. “My lashes are finally getting thick and long again and I finally feel comfortable with my lashes after they were destroyed by my extensions. I really suggest this serum for anyone with damaged eyelashes, as it saved my severely damaged lashes.”
For the best results, use daily and apply to the base of the upper eyelashes using the applicator brush. The eye should be completely clean of any makeup or eye creams. Start from the inner corner of the eye outwards, directly on the base of your eyelashes.
