long lashes by Shane Gavin

Did you know that your eyelashes grow for a total of just three months before falling out? It doesn't really seem very much time, does it? Especially for those of us who are on a quest for longer lashes and find that as soon as our eyelashes are finally starting to get long, whoops – there they go – your lovely long lashes are on the floor and the short, stubby replacements are the best you've got. Thankfully, for people like us, help is at hand.

Eyelash Intervention:

Recently, there have been all kinds of cosmetological and scientific developments that have led to skincare experts finding new ways to help boost and promote eyelash growth.

Lash growth serums and products such as Latisse, Revitalash and Lashfood all deliver dramatic results to eyelash growth. In some cases, lash growth of as much as 50% has been reported. These products are usually applied once a day (in the evening before bed) and are left on overnight. The downside is that these products are generally very expensive, retailing at anything between $70 - $150. On occasion, side effects can also be a concern, particularly for the lash growth products that contain prostaglandin.

Long Lashes Mascara:

The very new development of lash growth mascara has come from the recent popularity of the lash growth serums and conditioners on the market. It was only a matter of time before beauty companies began to put the two things together and develop some of those magic ingredients inside an everyday mascara.

The benefits are twofold – for those using eyelash growth serums at night, they can further help strengthen and grow their lashes during the day. For those who do not wish to use the serums (or find the prices too much to bear), the long lash growth mascaras are a less expensive and generally safer alternative to trial to be able to see results for themselves.

Lash growth mascaras help people who are looking to grow long lashes by including plant cell extracts to help strengthen the lashes, natural conditioners to moisturize and also lash stimulants to help promote lash growth.

These products also help to extend the 3 month growth cycle of eyelashes and bolsters, nourishes and strengthens lashes while they are in the active growth phase, making lashes thicker, longer and more lustrous.

Some of the companies who make and manufacture long lash growth mascara products promise results in as little as just 30 days. These products seem to perform differently according the individual, as is the case with the lash growth serums, so a little trial and error may be required to find the right product for you.

Some examples of long lashes mascara:

  • Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells Mascara
  • Lash Food Conditioning Drama Mascara
  • L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara
  • Rimmel London Lash Accelerator
