I have to admit I’ve been really skeptical of all of these new lash growth serums that are exploding on the market. Call me weird, but I actually get enjoyment out of proving myself wrong. The first time I saw one on the shelf at Sephora I picked it up until I realized it was $125 and I vowed I would never indulge in such a thing. Ever.
But then I realized that just because I didn’t see an immediate need in it for myself, there are some people who could really benefit from this kind of advanced technology. Like people who have undergone radiation therapy or who have lost their lashes for whatever the reason may be. So after I thought of the pros and cons of these new lash serums, I decided what the heck? I’ve probably spent over thousands of dollars on cosmetics I didn’t even use half of over my lifetime and all of the sudden– these lash formulas didn’t seem so outrageous in the grand scheme of things. What better way to make a final decision on their efficacy than to try one myself, the oh-so-skeptical one.
I gave NeuLash a shot at proving me wrong for a month. I took before shots and I was like, “These lashes are just okay. I wish they were darker, longer, and had a little curl at the end.” After one month, I took another shot and I said, “Oh my God. I have curl! They’re darker!” Sold.
Every night after my tedious skincare ritual, I applied NeuLash on my upper lash line and clicked my heels together 3 times. Okay, so maybe I didn’t click my heels together! I didn’t experience any problems and felt reassured since it’s paraben and fragrance-free because heck– it’s going like right near my eyes. It’s also been Ophthalmologist and Dermatologist safety tested and that was the assurance and nudge I needed. Enough of my babbling, here’s the shot:
See how they’re all wispy at the ends in the bottom shot? That’s new length! I swear! These photos have not been altered in any way other than a re-size. That curl at the ends was not achieved with a lash curler, that’s a natural little bend in the lashes and that’s what I was hoping for. I think my lashes look fuller, longer, have more angle in the curl, and look darker. Keep in mind, this is just after 4 weeks. I’m going to continue to use my tube of Neu Lash because there’s plenty left. Probably another 4-6 weeks worth. So I’ve proven my initial thoughts wrong, and I’ve satisfied some of my lash desires. While NeuLash isn’t a cheap date at $150, rest assured that it’s more of a clinical product than a fluff and buff cosmetic. I do recommend it, something I thought I would never do. Shhh, do you hear that? It’s the sound of my eyelashes growing!
My good friend Valerie over at Hair On The Brain is currently giving the Jan Marini Lash a shot, so I’m looking forward to her views on it soon. Have you ever tried a lash growth serum? How do you feel about these?
