Easter is just around the corner and that means family celebrations and getting together with friends. Whether you have loved not having to follow your morning makeup routine during lockdown or are desperate to get the blusher out, there’s one item everyone should start using as soon as possible.
While we love mascara, false eyelashes and lash extensions, there is one product that if flying off shelves, eyelash serum. But what exactly is eyelash serum and why should beauty enthusiasts consider buying it?
What Is Lash Serum?
Eyelash serum is a product that looks similar to mascara and is applied in the same way. It encourages healthy lash growth, below we look at the benefits of using this every day. It’s applied twice a day in the same way you apply mascara, so it’s super quick and easy and doesn’t take any hard maintenance to achieve the best results.
Eyelash Serum Promotes Moisture
Just like our hair, eyelashes can become dry and brittle. Years of mascara, facial cleaners, lash extensions and any other product that comes in contact with our lashes can lead to dry lashes and this causes them to fall out prematurely.
Without moisture, your eyes can even become red and puffy. Many people put this down to lack of sleep, hormones or age. In reality, it could be something as simple as your lashes lacking moisture.
Eyelash serum reinstates that much-needed hydration. This means your lashes will not only look great but can make a positive impact on the entire eye area.
Helps With Lash Retention
Have you ever applied mascara, only to find that loads of your lashes fall out and clog your mascara wand? This doesn’t just mean that your lashes aren’t looking their best, but those fall-outs can lead to your makeup not lasting as long as it should, costing you money.
Lash serum strengthens your lashes to reduce poor lash retention. It can even help those with alopecia and other related hair-loss issues.
This is achieved with the eyelash serum nourishing the follicle and giving it the strength it needs to hold onto those lashes until they should fall out, not before.
Improves Keratin Production
Keratin is an essential protein in our hair, skin, nails and our lashes. Many lashes need a little boost to grow longer and thicker.
Instead of adding artificial keratin to your lashes, the same way many shampoos do with hair, wizard eyelash serum helps your lashes to produce their own natural keratin.
Not only are these lashes then stronger, but they also grow longer, giving you that fantastic fan we all crave.
It Works On Eyebrows Too
Thick brows are in and they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Unfortunately, we aren’t all blessed with thick eyebrows naturally.
Eyelash serum can be used on your brows to encourage growth in the same way as it does with your lashes, meaning those with thin brows can promote hair growth and get closer to that en vogue brow look.
It Lasts Ages
We’ll be honest, compared to other beauty products, lash serum can be a little bit more pricey. However, it lasts for ages, meaning it ends up being very cheap in the long run. 5ml eyelash serum can last you up to 6 months.
Your Lashes Look Great-Without Makeup
You may be too busy every morning to apply makeup, or perhaps the last year has left you wanting to give your face a rest from heavy products.
Because lash serum makes your lashes longer and thicker, it does the same job as mascara. Many people may even mistake you for wearing a layer or two of mascara when it’s actually your natural lashes.
This means you don’t have to bother with makeup and still look your best self.
What You Should Know When Buying Eyelash Serum
Now you know why eyelash serum is so great, you probably want to get your hands on some as soon as possible.
But you need to choose the right one. There are so many variations on the market but not all of them are made to perfection.
Check to see if the manufacturer uses hormones in their products. Hormones do make eyelashes grow really quickly, so fast that many people praise them for being the best.
However, you need to be wary of these. If lashes are forced to grow too fast, they will not properly form and be hollow, which means they will fall out faster.
Also, if you decide to stop using the product for any reason, the shock to your body from suddenly having these hormones taken away will lead to your lashes dropping out and making them look worse than when you started.
Hormone-free eyelash serums will promote a fast, but safe, speed of growth and will not impact your lashes should you decide to stop using it.
