An eyelash serum is not an eyelash extension. This means that it’s not something that you wear but instead one that you apply on the skin of the
eyelids. Each tube contains special ingredients that are proven to be beneficial to your lashes (you’ll know more about these later on). Normally sold as a tube, the eyelash serum can last for a couple of weeks or a month, depending on how often you apply it. It also comes with an applicator, which you use to place the serum on the lashes.
Vitamins for the Eyelashes
One of the huge differences between eyelash serums and extensions, as well as serums and mascaras, is the components. An eyelash serum is usually composed of natural ingredients such as proteins and enzymes. They can also have certain vitamins. When combined, they help nourish every strand of the lashes. Based on several researches, the lack of proper vitamins prevents these lashes to grow fast and beautifully. Worse, they become brittle or weak they easily fall from their follicles. In the process, you tend to end up with sparse lashes. Proteins like keratin give the right kind of nourishment.
Easy to Use, Long-term Effects
An eyelash serum is very easy to use. In fact, you’ll find them more convenient than a mascara, which can leave smudges, or an eyelash extension, which can take some time to attach. You simply have to apply a small portion of the small serum on the skin of the upper eyelids using the applicator—that’s it. There’s no other step follow at all.
To truly see significant results, though, you are encouraged to continue using the serum for the entire duration or around 4 to 8 weeks. By then, you can enjoy longer, more beautiful eyelashes that you don’t have to apply any other eyelash product such as mascara anymore.
Take Note, However
Undoubtedly, an eyelash serum can give you gorgeous, luscious, seductive lashes—those that you truly like. Nevertheless, so you can maximize their benefits, remember the following:
Buy from a reputable manufacturer or retailer. Reliable manufacturers are those that come up with worth-buying products like an eyelash serum. Do your research as there are plenty of great brands out there. Moreover, if you want to buy from a retailer, ensure that it’s duly recognized by the manufacturer.
Apply as instructed. You may be tempted to apply the serum as often as you like in a day, but there’s a good reason why you should do so only a couple of times, or even once a day. For your safety, it’s better if you just follow the directions included in the package.
Watch out for irritation. Different strokes for different folks, they say. Though the serums work for many, it doesn’t have to mean they should work for you as well. If you’re not getting the results that you want or worse you start suffering from irritation, consult a doctor immediately and return the bottle to the manufacturer. See to it too that before you purchase, you’re guaranteed a refund that’s good for at least 30 to 60 days.
