Tips & Tricks

Eyelash serum for volume and longer lashes!

As most girls, I’ve always wanted long beautiful lashes with a lot of volume! It was never something I was too eager to try. That was until I read about eyelash serum and saw the effects of it! 

Spoiler alert! Eyelash serum makes wonders! 

It’s incredible what effect serum has had on my lashes! I’m definitely done with daily false lashes or extensions! Eyelash serum is my highest recommendation for you girls out there! It has become just as an important part of my daily routine as my skincare!

As you may remember from my several posts about skincare, it is something very important in my daily life! Eyelash serum can now be added to my daily beauty products along with face serum and all the other products I use! 

But what does serum really do to your lashes?

I like to have long, defined and voluminous lashes, especially when I’m going to a party or going out with friends. Unfortunately, my lashes are nothing like that naturally. So I usually used false lashes or went to a professional.

Though, to be honest it’s such trouble! There is so much daily upkeep – constantly! It’s not like it’s something that benefits the lashes in the longer run either- on the contrary! 

My friend’s mother recommended that I should try using eyelash serum instead. It’s natural and it has a lasting effect on the lashes. I decided to read a bit about it and find out what it actually does to the lashes. 

Eyelash serum – medicine or a beauty product? 

The serum for the lashes was apparently invented by a minor coincidence. While treating glaucoma the doctors noticed that one of the side effects (if you can call it that…) of the medicine for glaucoma was that their lashes grew longer.

For that reason, it was also discussed whether it was dangerous to use the serum near the eyes when it first started showing up on the market back in 2009. Some of the initial products contain the same substance as in medicine.

So the argument was that it was not a beauty product but a medicine. Another side effect was shown to be discoloration of iris, which most certainly isn’t something you would be interested in! 

It turns out that in most products, it is not the same active ingredient as in the medicine, only similar. Luckily, if you buy the serum in Europe, it has been approved as a cosmetic product. It is this active ingredient that nourishes your lashes and makes them grow.

However, it is still a strong product, so be very careful when you use it, especially if you have sensitive eyes. I for example use contact lenses, so I am very careful. I always make sure to apply the serum when not wearing my lenses. Just to be safe. If you experience any irritation or discomfort then try another serum. There are a lot of them to choose from.

I read a lot of recommendations about the Clinically Proven Lash Serum from L’Oréal Paris and it’s also the one my friend’s mother uses. It has a good price and is effective! They promise results after only 4 weeks, and I have now used it for a couple of months! Again, I’m amazed. The result is gorgeous! My lashes are much more defined and voluminous now so I am happy!
