That eyelash super grower stuff...

I think it's called rapid lash - is that the best one?

Has anybody found it works? And is it something I could get cheaper in America? (My dads on hol there now and asking what I'd like brought back).

And one last question, is it safe to use when pregnant or bfing?

Thank you!

Yes it works and makes a noticeable difference very quickly IMO. Don't know the price of it in the States and don't see why you can't use it if preg or breast feeding though check the small print on the box

dunno re USA but its ace

The only brand I have heard of in the States is Latisse (spokeswoman Brooke Shields, no less).

It does work, but is very expensive. Also, you have to apply regularly or lashes will slowly revert back to previously sparse condition.

I tried rapid lash but was allergic to it.

I tried rapidlash. I think it was the real deal from Boots as it was expensive, about £40. However, it definitely works. I have always had stubby eyelashes; now they are long and I use a gloopy mascara so they look even thicker and longer.

sunnysunnyshine Sat 16-Feb-13 18:40:43

Thanks all.

The reviews look good but do your lashes go back to normal as soon as you stop using it?

Milchardo Sat 16-Feb-13 18:58:16

I used rapidlash and the difference is incredible. Lashes were short and sparse and are now long and curly. smile I use it twice a week now (if I remember!) to keep them like that.

FaffTastic Sat 16-Feb-13 19:11:34

Well your lashes have a cycle life so I guess you have to keep using it as old lashes fall off and new lashes grow through so yeah, unfortunately it's not a use one tube and have forever long lashes scenario

BelindaCarlisle Sat 16-Feb-13 19:11:55

this thread has made me reactivate

sunnysunnyshine Sat 16-Feb-13 19:20:50

Thanks Milchardo...Having to use just twice a week isn't too bad. I just didn't like the idea of having to use it every day indefinitely to keep it up... I'm lazy! grin

JumpHerWho Sat 16-Feb-13 20:55:17

How long does tube last if you use twice a week? Tempted.

MoodyDidIt Sat 16-Feb-13 21:05:47

it definitely worked for me

its expensive though, i recently bought the no7 version which is slightly cheaper but it isn't as good IMO, although have noticed my lashes are slightly better. but with the rapidlash my lashes were unbelievable. and it worked so quick./ god knows whats in it confused

Wiggletastic Sat 16-Feb-13 21:37:58

I use Rapidlash and it definitely works, longer and thicker lashes within 4 to 6 weeks of using it everyday. I now use it two to three times a week as maintenance. One tube lasts about 3 months if used everyday.

MyGlassIsJustHalfWet Sat 16-Feb-13 21:48:40

Would it work on eyebrows? To grow them back if over plucked I mean. Don't fancy long eyebrowshmm

FaffTastic Sat 16-Feb-13 22:18:10

You can get eyebrow growth serum but I reckon you could use the eyelash serum on brows too as well as lashes to save forking out on an additional tube at £££. It's probably the same stuff anyway

BelindaCarlisle Sun 17-Feb-13 08:48:35

ages jump

when you STOP though it reverts sad

It's brilliant and cheaper from amazon.

Mavala do one that you can use for your brows. You can get it from John Lewis and is very good.

noddyholder Sun 17-Feb-13 08:58:14

Its great but you have to maintain it. I give myself a talking to now and again about why I can't seem to find 2 seconds before bed to sweep on a bit of liquid that cost me £50 but does work! Last summer i had lashes like bambi! Now just normal

BelindaCarlisle Sun 17-Feb-13 09:04:24

right NOD
you and me both

noddyholder Sun 17-Feb-13 09:20:28

I sometimes even glance at it and still don't do it. I am having a clear out today and am going to put it by bed with mirror Yes I am!!!!!!!!!!

BelindaCarlisle Sun 17-Feb-13 09:23:03

It's on my bedside table fgs. We need to text

noddyholder Sun 17-Feb-13 09:32:14

I am playing cat and mouse with mine I think grin It has become a 'thing' for me I just don't know why I can't do it esp knowing it works and I like the effect

cashmere Sun 17-Feb-13 10:49:43

Do you use it at the base of eyelashes but on actual hair only or along the skin at the base of eyelashes?

noddyholder Sun 17-Feb-13 10:59:59

base of lashes in a line like eyeliner The one i use is like water I didn't really think it would do much!

cashmere Sun 17-Feb-13 11:12:46


MoodyDidIt Sun 17-Feb-13 14:50:47

i used to do what noddy said, but also put a bit on the actual lashes as well

ComeAlongPond Sun 17-Feb-13 17:06:23

This looks quite interesting - expensive though. Do any of the cheaper versions work at all or is it only really this one?

Daffyboobface Sun 17-Feb-13 17:34:25

Don't think you can use it while pg or bfing though, remember I was looking longingly while pg but being put off by the Awful Warnings sheet. Looking at this thread has just reminded me that it was on my list to do...!

TheWombat Sun 17-Feb-13 20:15:52

I've just bought the mavala double lash serum in Boots. I'll report back in a few weeks and let you know if it's made any difference to my microlashes

VideoEtTaceo Sun 17-Feb-13 21:34:48

Did rapidlash change the colour of anyone's eyes? I was researching it and I think that was one of the potential side effects! (Though not sure how that would work). And does anyone know if you can use it and still dye your eyelashes? Thanks!

BelindaCarlisle Sun 17-Feb-13 22:34:14

Nod. I'm in bed eyelash ing. ARE YOU

BinksToEnlightenment Sun 17-Feb-13 23:04:41

Can you use this with contact lenses, does anyone know?

noddyholder Sun 17-Feb-13 23:26:36

Have done it belindac

Eliza22 Mon 18-Feb-13 16:18:33

What about the Elizabeth Arden one.... Prevage ? Anyone? RapidLash works, after 6 + weeks or so. I think it's the Latisse and Revitalash that have prostaglandins in and can discolour the skin around the eye and change eye colour.

ArcticRoll Mon 18-Feb-13 19:23:21

Have just bought rapid lash off Amazon -about a tenner cheaper than Boots..bang goes my boycott of Amazon!

BelindaCarlisle Mon 18-Feb-13 19:23:55

i am ready to apply noddy * salutes*

I bought some from QVC about 3 weeks ago .(Revitalash)
There's an eyelash serum, an eyebrow serum, a blue mascara primer and eyelash curlers.
Not got any results as yet, but I know it's early days (so still hopeful)

Cerealqueen Mon 18-Feb-13 22:18:23

if you look on the Rapidlash website it says 'We recommend that you discuss use of this product with your physician if you are pregnant or breastfeeding'

I think it is because one of the ingredients was originally used to treat glaucoma (which is how to came to notice that it made people's lashes grow).

BelindaCarlisle Tue 19-Feb-13 07:03:44

I bloody forgot ! Applied this aml

noddyholder Tue 19-Feb-13 09:42:41

aaaah me too wtf?

BelindaCarlisle Tue 19-Feb-13 20:02:35

Think lashes.

BelindaCarlisle Tue 19-Feb-13 21:52:12

I'm done!! Noddy?

noddyholder Wed 20-Feb-13 15:05:27

yes yes

Eliza I tried the Elizabeth Arden one. It was ££ and it seems I am allergic to it.

Eliza22 Thu 21-Feb-13 09:00:55

Thanks SquirtedPerfume. Elizabeth Arden are pretty good if you need to return something. Maybe, they're refund/credit note you? Think I'll continue with my RapidLash!

oh really? that would be worth trying, thank you.

Ladyfoxglove Fri 22-Feb-13 12:28:53

You can get Lumigan from online pharmacies (reputable of course) which is exactly the same stuff for about £27. Both Rapidlash and Lumigan are brilliant. I have short, sparse, fair eyelashes and after a couple of weeks using this stuff they start to get longer, darker and thicker and stay that way until you stop. To keep up the change you should apply two or three times per week.

incognitoforonenight Fri 22-Feb-13 18:38:28

I got RApidlash at Christmas and have been using it everynight. Have def noticed an improvement. The lashes are not massively longer, but they are def longer enough for me to notice the difference - and I had really short stubby little things! Worth the money I'd say as the bottle is still going strong, and at 40 I cannae be faffed with falsies anymore!

baileysmam Thu 21-Mar-13 15:14:11

This thread is so timely for me. Had my lash extensions removed yesterday ,just couldn't afford the upkeep, but am now left with lashes considerably shorter than they originaly were and the look a bit 'frazzled' on the ends. They really need some TLC, but seen differing views on two serums, The Mavala double lash overnight lash treatment AND Rapid lash enhancing serum. Anyone got any ideas which might be best given the circumstances??

I've been using Revitalash Eyelash and eyebrow treatment since mid January (they are two seperate products)

So far the eyelashes are a disappointment but I'm still applying it (might as well, I've paid for it and I'm hoping for a sudden burst of activity from them)

The eyebrows- WOW. I haven't plucked my eyebrow for years they are usually so feeble with a huge gap at the end. Now they have filled in, they are thicker. The gap hasn't completely grown back but I'm seeing results.
And there are fine hairs on the upper lid part - so the trusted Tweezermans can come out of hibernation.
