I had some fake eyelashes attached for my work do but they looked ridiculous. They are now all off thankfully but have left gaps where I've been a little too forceful. Will the serum help do you think or any other advice? Cheers.
I use Revitalash. It works. You have to use it diligentlyfor around six weeks, but once your lashes are long and thick you can it .use less regularly to keep them in shape. My lashes grew so long they hit my specs, so I had to lay off for a while. Revitalash is expensive, but I stock up from QVC specials or easy pay offers. I also use Revitalash primer mascara alone as my mascara - it is blue, with tiny fibres. I find it stays put and gives a very natural look to my dark brown lashes without a top coat.
I've been using Rapidlash for about 5/6 weeks now, and started to notice a difference after 2 weeks. It definitely works! It is slightly irritating to the eyelid - eyes can feel a bit gritty in the morning (using at night), but no problems apart from that, although there are a few scare stories on the 'net. I'm very pleased with it (and not a young bird either, I'm nearly 68!!) Amazon is best for price, it's about £40 in Boots.
Word of caution- yes it works and is fabulous, but once you stop (and for whatever reason you will at some point) all the extra lashes will fall out. and you will look balder than when you started. Given the chance I would never go back to when I started using it, as I then periodically lost loads of lashes every 3 months for about 2 years. I'm just getting over this now, and it was horrific. Total bald top lashes (as that's the only bit I used the serum on).
For me, the new lashes that grew in were mega long, and batting off the inside of my specs. All good though, and they looked fabulous! But then all the long ones fell out, leaving the tiny stumpy ones, and the sad thing is I always had pretty bloody good lashes, just never appreciated it! then it would take about 2 weeks for other to grow back to make them all 'okay' and then 3 months later would all fall out again. Now I use novalash when I want extra, and they are fantastic false lashes, glued on to each individual lash.
what Chippy said! It looked awful when the falsies fell off but RapidLash works well for as long as you're using it - the effect stops when you stop using it, but to get over a lash treatment it is ideal (takes a while though)
I had extension that left bald spots. I used one tube & noticed a difference within 2 weeks. I stopped using it after it ran out & my lashes didn't fall out. Just use the tube until your lashes get back to normal then stop. I was impressed with it.
