Seriously: One of the dumbest advertising ploys in the beauty industry is brands asking women whether they want longer, fuller lashes. I mean… WHO DOESN’T? And that’s exactly why we’re testing a lash growth serum today!
Since I’m always on the hunt for new products and treatments to get the fabulous lashes of my dreams, I happily accepted BeautyLash’s offer to test their «Growth Booster… here goes!
BeautyLash Eyelash Growth Booster (4ml), around US$ 140
The Booster is made in Austria and contains coral extracts (Black Sea Rod Oil), which activate lash growth and prolongs the growth stage. And that’s how you get longer lashes: you simply extend their life span.
With the use of a good lash growth serum, the individual lash doesn’t renew itself as often, and therefore grows longer!
BeautyLash promises «visible results» after 6-8 weeks. Also, the naturally derived ingredients are supposed to be better for your body than synthetic substances. That also means: less possible side effects (as some earlier products based on the «original» product Latisse could permanently darken the iris, among other things).
So let’s talk shop, ingredients-wise.
The BeautyLash Eyelash Growth Booster contains: Aqua, Sodium Hysluronate, Phenethyl Caffeate, Blac Sea Rod Oil, Panthenol, Biotin, Carpryl Glycol, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, C12-15, Alkyl Benzoate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Hydroxide, Alcohol Denat., Phenoxyethanol
I don’t usually list ingredients of beauty products I review, but in this case, I think it’s important to know what you’re putting on your eye!
HOW TO USE IT:
The Eyelash Growth Booster is applied like a liquid eyeliner.
The colour- and odourless fluid is applied once a day right at the base of the lashes.
One «dip» is enough and if you want you can also apply it to the lower lashes (although I never did that). There may be a slight tingling sensation, which goes away really quickly, and I never experienced any redness or discoloration on the skin near my lash line.
One thing that’s really important while using a lash growth serum is patience! It doesn’t work right away. In my case, I had to wait for about two months for the results to show. But they sure did grow!
Here are my make-up free before and after pictures:
TO SUM UP:
This stuff works! And it works better than many similar products out there.
My lashes have grown significantly. I was asked several times if I had lash extensions done!
Here are two recent pics which show my new flirty look – haha!
Here’s another thing I noticed: I now have to wear my glasses lower on my nose, because otherwise my lashes keep touching the lenses. Could be annoying for eyeglass wearers, just so you know.
Oh, and by the way: The Eyelash Growth Booster can also be used to treat the eyebrows! BeautyLash does have a separate product for brows, but it’s worth mentioning that you could double this one up.
I now use the Booster every other day, to prolong the effect and as «upkeep».
The only downside to lash serums like this one is that you have to keep using them. If you stop completely, your lashes will eventually fall out naturally and grow back shorter and finer (like they were before).
If you have the necessary budget, you can just keep on using it: One tube should last for about five months.
I’m super-happy with my new, fluttery lashes… the effect is pretty profound and actually comparable to when I had lash extensions done a few years ago, but looks a lot more natural and needs less upkeep.
Hope you find this review helpful and just make sure you don’t fly away with your new, super-sized lashes!
