Made my eyes and eyebrows so itchy, in 2 days, will never use it again.
This review is for the "serum" not the mascara. Up til now, I had been using vaseline to condition and soften my lashes. While it [vaseline] did soften my lashes, it didn't do much else. I have always wanted to try lash lengthening serums eg. Latisse but found they were too pricey. When I saw this at Walmart for $8CDN and "made in Italy" haha I thought it was worth a shot! I have been using this for about a week, once a day (at night before I go to bed) and I have already noticed a difference in my lashes. The consistency/texture of this product is very similar to 'clear mascara'. The applicator is unique as well since the wand includes a tiny eyeliner-like brush at the end for your brows!! My lashes definitely appear to be longer and have some extra volume! I will continue to keep using this and anxiously wait to see how much longer my lashes will become at the end of this tube! So far I am having high hopes for this serum!! *thumbs up*
For reference: my lashes have decent volume and "ok" length. I do not have sparse lashes. Results will obviously differ from person to person :)
I say this works! I can definitely see the difference on my lower lash lines. I mainly bought this to help my Eye brows to grow back to what it was 8 years ago, before i started to maintain it. Want to try a different look. I have pretty much left my eyebrows alone for the past few months. But in order for the rest to grow ( come out) I have decided to leave it alone for a few more(because i am bold like that...hehe). I dont see a chia-pet effect yet, I definitely notice a difference and that is quite good when I have only used it on and off for 1 week plus especially when you weigh the price. I say try it.
And um yes, if you put it inside your eye, it will burn. That is not where its suppose to be. I have been able to open my eyes in the morning without any issues. My only negative remark is that i wished they had come up with a better applicator because it really is a good product. And really poor designing as far as a useful brush :/ great serum though!!!
if this serum wasnt $8, i wouldnt buy it at all. but with all the lash serums like lilash, revitalash, and latisse starting at $110+, $8 is an almost unbelievable price for a lash serum that does really grow your lashes. my lashes grew unnaturally long, super quickly.
unfortunately, it doesnt strengthen lashes. at all. if anything, i think it has made my lashes weaker (even being a daily biotin taker), where if i rub my eyes, i will lose at least a few lashes. whats worse is that the formula makes this almost peel off-able crust in the morning that feels heavy like it could glue my eyelids together. and DO NOT rub your eyes and try and get it off. it is stuck to the lashes and will take them with you when you rub it off.
this being said, the brush does deposit a lot of formula (which the bottle is big as well) so be sure not to use too much.
and ALSO DO NOT PUT THIS ON IF YOUR MAKEUP IS NOT 110% off. i did a slack job of taking off mascara and the whole glue-like formula basically glued the mascara to my lashes. i took to brushes, combs, and even safety pins because a few of my longest lashes, glued together with formula and mascara, just fell off. :(
you just have to be careful with the formula and just wash it off gently or use hot water on a cotton pad if youre lazy (like me).
but for $8, you can buy one of those drugstore eyelash strengtheners as well and be $90 under budget in comparison to the most expensive lash serums. but if you got the money for lilash/revitalash/etc, i say do it.
I bought this on sale a few days ago and have been using it regularly since then. I cannot say much because I have not used it long enough but I do have some opinions about this product.
Upon application, it does make my lashes longer and they also appear to be stronger as well. However, I am not very happy with the formula or package. The opening of the tube has a very tight fit with the brush so I have to literally pull the wand rather hard every time when I try to get it out. I am not sure if it is just my tube or it is just the design. Secondly, I find the formula to be a bit too thick. The brush can have lots of serum on it and my lashes are not that long or thick. I can often found residues at the tips of my lashes. I could not swipe it away with the wand because it is coated with serum.
I apply it every night before i go to bed and sometimes when i wake up the next morning, there are dried bits on my lashes from this product. It has not irritated my eyes and though the residues can be washed out easily, it is not a pleasant thing to see them in the morning.
I sometimes use this in the morning before makeup. I usually apply it really early to let it settle completely. My lashes appear longer and more defined.
I will update if anything new shows up
After almost two months of regular usage, I have something to add here. This product perfroms better in the long term i think. Although I could not say my lashes are longer, I certainly have more lashes now. The serum helps to fill out some spots on my lashline and my lashes are definitely stronger. They are maybe a tad bit thincker too and I have much fewer lashes falling out everyday.
I only apply my upper lashline every night before I go to bed. I've learnt to swipe the wand along the edge of the opening a few times in order to get the excess serum off. This way, it is easier to use and would not leave too much residue in the morning.
Usually when I wake up, I actually see my lashes curl up really nicely. But I am still not sure if it is because of this serum or simply the position I sleep in. I suppose it might means that the serum is able to hold a curl when used under mascara. Because it takes sometime to dry, I only use it as a nightly treatment. Although I do not think it accelerate the length of my lashes, it sure speeds up the growth rate and makes them stronger.
I have been using this for two days so far and I have had no problems with it, i'm not going to wear mascara for the next thirty days because i'm testing it out. I apply it to my lashes like a mascara everyday and then comb through my lashes with a brush to get the excess off. Lets hope it works!
I've been using this product in the evenings only for about 2 weeks and I've noticed a big difference already. I wear fake lashes almost everyday and I have a tendency to pick at the glue left behind. Normally when I get pretty aggressive, lashes would come with it. With this, I haven't really seen any fallout. At all. And I really tugged to test it out. And with no lashes coming off, my lashes look fuller. This may not be due to the serum, but my lashes are definitely healthier.
I'm not too sure about it making your lashes grow longer though. But, we'll see. I just use the ridged side of the wand to coat my lashes with the serum. I tried the brush once for what I thought should be a more concentrated effect, but it was just too much and got in my eye. Aside from some stinging, it didn't irritate my eyes any further. So, too bad for the people who seem to have had an allergic reaction to this. In my opinion, this is a pretty good product.
I bought this product in hopes that it would be a good cheaper alternative to L'oreal's Lash Boosting Serum, I was sadly mistaken. The serum made my eyelids burn and swell when it was applied. I decided that rather than applying it like eyeliner I would just coat my lashes with the product instead, that didn't work either. I have naturally long sparse eyelashes and the product was too heavy to actually coat 1/3 of my eyelashes, so the tips of my eyelashes were left bare. I'll stick with L'oreal Lash Boosting Serum because it actually works for me.
Surprisingly this product seems to work for me and I don't even use as often as I should. Although, it might be a placebo effect, but hey, there's result and I like it.
The only complaint I have is that when I wake up in the morning, there are residues crumpling my lashes and also stick to my eyelids. Though, it can be easily wash off with water, but I just don't like the fact that the residues might cause potential wrinkles around my eyes.
I was surprised but it worked, It takes about 3 weeks but i am starting to see new baby eye brow hairs growing back in
