Right, which eyelash serums actually work?

Fed up of my short stubby offerings. They look OK with lashings of mascara but I'd like them to be longer. Tried castor oil brushed on each night for the last 3 months, it's done nada!

Rapidlash works really well for me. I get asked all the time if my lashes are real. It takes about two months to show a real difference, and if you stop using it your lashes will return to their stubby state. It's my number one beauty product.

I use rapid lash and rapidbrow. Also the RImmel mascara that includes a lash tint. I will never have Bambi lashes but they are at least visible now.

Extortionate price, I couldn't justify buying it personally but this sounds amazing!

I read the ingredients before starting it and couldn't see anything amazing in it so my expectations were low.

After 4 weeks there was barely anything happening, so I thought, "oh well, may as well use it up", and carried on applying each night.

2 weeks after that and omg, my eyelashes were ridiculously long. So long in fact that I had to trim a few that had shot ahead of the others and were touching my eyebrows.

I've been using it for 12 weeks now, (on second tube), and I look like I have eyelash extensions. I'm amazed by it. It's probably the best beauty product I've ever bought.

If you try it, remember to apply every single night and be patient. It was between weeks 6 and 8 that the growth really started.

Oh and at one point (8-9 weeks?) one eye had lashes that were growing in a different direction to the rest but they've dropped back into line and are now growing the same as the rest of them.

I feel nervous now that I've gushed and it might not work for you. 😰 Obviously people have different responses to these kinds of things but I guess my point was that it's definitely worth a try.

I used Rapid Lash after chemo around 5 years ago it was amazing. I tried it two years ago and the results were really disappointing as they've changed their formula it didn't work for me.

Rapid Lash worked for me too, amazingly long lashes, but I think my tube (now 2 years old) may have lost its effect, maybe the ingredients have a short shelf life, as it doesn't seem to work now. Wondering whether to splash out on a new tube.

Bimatoprost <runs away>

Romcom Wed 03-Aug-16 20:56:43

Wow, rapid lash it is then! I have used it before with good effect, I think the second time I gave up before it really started working. Thank you all

Romcom Wed 03-Aug-16 20:59:50

Oh, and where do you buy rapid lash please? Amazon?

JohnCheese Thu 04-Aug-16 00:10:41

HoneyDragon don't run away!! Come back! You can't just advise and run! Tell me about your results with it. Am terrified it would change the colour of my baby bluesgrin

HoneyDragon Thu 04-Aug-16 00:17:05

I have brown eyes.

I get the same very slight pigment stain above my lash line as I did with Rapidlash. But it's much much more effective. I have non existent lashes naturally, within weeks they were longer.

JohnCheese Thu 04-Aug-16 01:01:18

Oh thanks HoneyD. I hear the results are amazing. I can't get beyond the possible eye colour change tho. I don't know any blue eyed person who's has used it either. Maybe the colour change is v rare. Have v fair fine straight lashes. Fancy lush lashes. Yip first world problems.

Ive tried the gosh at superdrug one - there are lots of reviews comparing it favourably to rapid lash plus it's cheaper and doesn't change your eye colour ?

ihatethecold Thu 04-Aug-16 09:32:00

How can something change your eye colour? hmm

Globetrotter100 Thu 04-Aug-16 10:07:33

Hahaha HoneyDragon, yes it's controversial but unbeatable grin

Unfortunately I've developed a sensitivity to Bimatoprost so off it for now. But I highly recommend it (only) if someone is prepared to get their eyes checked out by an optician first and have brown eyes.

Also known as Lumigan or Latisse.

HoneyDragon Thu 04-Aug-16 10:12:34


It's a listed side effect, a rare one but can darken blue eyes.

ihatethecold Thu 04-Aug-16 13:19:38

That's bonkers!

MrsAlexanderSkarsgard Thu 04-Aug-16 13:22:08

Revitalash user here - very very happy

HoneyDragon Thu 04-Aug-16 13:24:09

Better darker eyes than Glaucoma

MotherOfMinions Thu 04-Aug-16 14:15:11

The Mavala one definitely doesn't work 😡

bendyruler Thu 04-Aug-16 17:09:10

They sell rapidlash in boots.

febel Thu 04-Aug-16 20:04:03
