If you’re of a certain age and have noticed that your trusty mascara isn’t doing the trick, or it requires a lot more formula to achieve the look than it used to, you probably aren’t imagining it. As we age our hormone levels fluctuate, and this not only thins out the hair on our heads but also can cause eyelashes to break, fall out and not grow back. Even if you’re still in your twenties and thirties, you can have hormonal imbalances that will also thin lashes. Or perhaps you simply weren’t blessed with a set of naturally thick lashes, to begin with. No matter the cause, there are many over the counter lash serums that can help aid in the regrowth of your eyelashes. Here are five eyelash serums that promote growth and length.
You read that correctly, eyes and lashes serum. This product offers up a two-for-one benefit, targeting fine lines around the eyes and strengthening and conditioning lashes at the same time. It is formulated with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and rhamnose, a plant sugar, all of which reduce visible signs of aging and fortifies the lashes. It’s gentle enough to use twice a day.
This is 100% pure cold-pressed castor oil and is also USDA certified organic. It comes with two applicators, one for lashes and one for eyebrows. It’s simple, pure and a proven ingredient when it comes to strengthening and improving the thickness of lashes, eyebrows, and hair.
This Peter Thomas Roth growth treatment is formulated with the brand’s proprietary Tri-Phase Lash Complex that contains peptides, which are known to improve thickness in lashes. As the name suggests, it is strong enough that is should be applied only once per day, at night.
Developed in 2006 by Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff to help his wife Gayle “feel beautiful” as she recovered from cancer, this product has the science and the results behind its formula. It’s won numerous awards including from InStyle Magazine and 5 Best of Beauty Awards from Allure Magazine.
Formulated with biotin and botanical ingredients, Lavish Lash promotes hair follicle growth at the root, while also strengthening and lengthening the fine lash and brow hair you already have. Apply once per day at nighttime.
