Truth Patrol: Lash Growth Products

By now, a lot of companies have jumped on the lash-growth-bandwagon. There are more and more drugstore lash growth serums and mascaras that claim to make your lashes grow (Rimmel’s Lash Accelerator Serum, L’Oreal’s Double Extend Lash Boosting Serum, etc.). But these product don’t have any credible scientific studies supporting the claim that any of their ingredients promote lash growth!

In fact, the only product currently on the market with solid evidence that it actually works is Latisse (which you need a prescription for). It’s expensive (around $120 for a 2-month supply), but if you really want something that will make your lashes grow, it’s the only product out there right now that’s worth spending your money on.

So stop dishing out those dollars for over-the-counter mascaras, eyeliners, and serums that claim their “magical” ingredients will make your lashes longer. Opt for a good mascara or fake lashes instead.

Be bright, be beautiful!

    I have tried a couple of those drugstore serums and the L’Oreal (I mainly bought that to grow out bald patches on my brows, as I am an OCD puller) and Physicians Formula (lash booster eyeliner) both work really well on me that I notice growth within a week…I will give the Rimmel one a go after I finish my 2nd tube of L’Oreal, since Teen Vogue editor Eva Chen said that it gave her decent result.

      Sorry, but the truth is that those product didn’t cause your hair to grow. They simply don’t have anything in them that promotes hair growth… You would have gotten the same results by rubbing face cream or water on your eyes.

    I’ve actually had fantastic results w/ RapidLash…of course, what works for some won’t for others.

      RapidLash potentially has ingredients that could help lash growth, but the evidence hasn’t yet been established that it does.
