Last year, I had a traumatic experience involving an eyelash curler—and before you click out and stop reading—I promise to spare you all the horrid details. Instead, I will just tell you about the devastating aftermath and the frenzy I was in to try to repair and minimize the damage. My first thoughts quickly traveled to those Claire Danes’ Latisse commercials I had seen for so many years. So, I began my research with how to get my hands on a bottle. After learning almost immediately that you had to have a prescription for Latisse, and that one bottle would set me back at least a hundo, I decided to set my lashes on a product more attainable.
Eyelashes prior to the "Curling Fiasco of 2015" had never been a problem for me before. So, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was a huge market dedicated to eyelash and eyebrow growth that I had never been exposed to. I found trusted reviews on a number of products ranging from $8 to over $100. I didn't want to be a complete cheapskate when choosing a product, but I also had to be realistic and not get myself into trouble by starting an expensive habit I would never be able to keep up. The obvious choice quickly became RapidLash at $28 a tube. I knew I wouldn't be completely heartbroken if it didn't produce the results I was looking for, but I also knew that if it did work I had the means to repurchase easily. You can find RapidLash at CVS or Walgreens, but I have always had luck purchasing mine safely on Amazon where I can find it for a few bucks cheaper.
As soon as my first bottle of RapidLash arrived I quickly incorporated it into my nightly skincare ritual making sure that I was diligent about applying it every night. The serum itself has a very thin, water-like consistency that you apply to the top lashes the way you would eyeliner. I never tried it, but you can also use this on your lower lash line as well as your eyebrows.
After a few weeks of consistent use, I finally had the answer to the question that has brought you to this blog post, which is: Yes! RapidLash eyelash and eyebrow enhancing serum really does work. I can't say that it has made my lashes any longer. However, after four weeks of use, I began to see lashes transform from long and sparse into a set of strong and full lashes with no signs of damage. Once you get the results you are looking for its easy to just stop using the serum, but be aware that if you do, the lashes RapidLash helped you grow will fall out. That is also the way you can tell that you need a bottle; the liquid won't run out, you will just begin to notice your lashes thinning out. I hope that doesn't come across too dramatic—it won’t hurt or anything, and it won't leave you patchy.
Since using RapidLash for over a year now, I have gotten compliments on my lashes from friends and complete strangers. I have also had professional makeup artists rave about how lucky I am to have such full and long lashes. I always laugh off the compliments with a “they’re all natural, wink-wink” joke before I spill my secret weapon.
RapidLash Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancing Serum Verdict
· See results in as early as two weeks
· Easy to apply
· Doesn't darken eyelids
· Doesn't interfere with eye creams/serums/moisturizers
· Tube lasts for several months
· Easy to find at drugstores or on Amazon
· Reasonable price
· If you stop using the product your new lashes will fall out
RapidLash doesn't get a perfect score because if you stop using this product the lashes grown with it will fall out. It’s not painful or anything, but it would be nice to find a product that could grow permanent lashes. I have, and will continue to recommend this product to friends looking for fuller lashes at a moderate price.
