RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum*, £41 | Boots
When I was younger, people always used to compliment me on how long and full my eyelashes were, and to be honest, they were pretty amazing. I’m very lucky to still have fairly long and naturally curled lashes, but the fullness is not really there anymore… they’re sparse and I can definitely see lots of gaps on my lashline! I can only blame this on my regular use and removal of mascara over the last 4 years. Even the most gentle makeup removers have taken a lash or two of mine as souvenirs, and suddenly a little becomes quite a lot!
I’d heard of Rapidlash a while back and recently I was offered the chance to try it, so I thought why not. Rapidlash is a treatment in the form of a serum, which helps boost the appearance of eyelashes; it’s meant to be used once a day, and supposedly, results can be visibly seen in as little as 30 days. Sounds promising, right?
The serum is a thin liquid, which comes in a mascara-like tube with a very thin applicator brush. It is deemed safe for contact lens wearers and ophthalmologist & dermatologist tested, but if you have sensitive eyes, I would still recommend contacting your ophthalmologist before using this, just to be sure. You’ll be applying it very close to your eyes, which is an extremely delicate and sensitive area. That’s the last place you want to have any adverse reactions!
From one application, I have nothing worrying to report; everything went smoothly, the serum doesn’t smell, it didn’t cause any discomfort and it didn’t sting my eyes whatsoever. It is recommended to completely clean the eye area, so make sure you remove all your makeup and eye creams before applying Rapidlash. It should be used in the evening before bedtime, which I don’t know if it’s an instruction or just more for your convenience, as you’re less likely to fiddle with your eye area when you’re sleeping!
As I was researching to write this blog post, I came across a few articles online that mentioned the use of RapidLash was linked with some serious issues! Now, I know better than to trust everything I read on the internet, but I couldn’t help but wonder if it’s really worth giving this a try, or if I should just not bother and live happily with thinner lashes. My policy is definitely safety first!
That’s where I need your help! I was prepared to commit to using RapidLash for a period of 30 days, starting from tonight, but I need a little more convincing before I do this. So if you’ve used RapidLash before or know someone who’s used it, could you please put my mind at ease and tell me that no one had any major problems with it? However, if you’ve not had great luck with it, please let me know as well. Thank you in advance :)
