Better Lashes for Less Than $10

  • by

My son Harvey has the best eyelashes.  I can’t tell you the number of times people have asked me where he got those from.  Apparently not me!  I’ve always thought my lashes were decent, so I decided to compare my toddler pictures with Harvey’s.  From the pictures I concluded the following. Harvey’s lashes MIGHT be better than mine, or maybe just darker.  Or perhaps my phone takes better pics than the cameras did when I was a child! HA!

In all seriousness, I am obsessed with Harvey’s lashes and think he’s the most beautiful kid on the planet.  Sorry to be one of the moms!  But I also think my own eyelashes are ok too.  I’ve never felt the need to wear false ones, I didn’t use an eyelash curler until college, and it’s only been recently that I’ve wondered if I could have better lashes.  Since I have lighter eyes and I’m weary of Latisse side effects (and the cost), I figured I would try the $8 Rimmel lash serum.

My Eyelash Concerns

When I purchased the serum, I had the following concerns with my lashes:

  • Weird growth – some lashes would grow down or get tangled with other ones.  They irritated me constantly.
  • Too light – mine are very blonde compared to my brows and hair color
  • Not as much curl as they used to have
  • Lacking life

Achieving Healthy Lashes

Since I didn’t pay $100 for Latisse, I wasn’t expecting a miracle product.  But, I was hoping for healthier lashes.  When you compare your lashes to the other hairs on your body, they take a TON of abuse.  Imagine if you put layers of wax on your hair each day and then stripped it off wish a remover.  Do you think you would be able to maintain a full head of hair????  It’s no wonder most women lose their eyelashes as they age.

The Results

I have gone through phases of using this product and not using it.  I can totally tell the difference between the times when I use it and the times when I don’t.  If I apply it before bedtime, my mascara looks so much better the next day.  If I forget, my lashes don’t look as good.  It’s that simple.  Even better, the lash serum has resolved my eyelash concerns.  The best part is I am starting to notice darker color coming in at the roots of my lashes.  Hallelujah.  Maybe the color will reach the tips sometime!!  This might help me look better when I visit Target with no mascara – a regular occurrence when you are a busy mom on the go.

I think everyone deserves better lashes.  If you don’t want to take the time to apply the serum, you can try the mascara.  It’s a great two-in-one alternative.
