For me, I try to give myself small “treats” on a regular basis like my favourite tea latte, getting to bed a little earlier, an extra long hot shower, or splurging a bit on something that makes me happy. I hope you’ve got some things or activities that make you feel happy too!
The older I get, the thinner-looking and shorter my eyelashes appear. Behind my glasses, my stubby eyelashes seem almost invisible even with mascara. I know what you’re thinking. Not having to wear a bra or make up is pretty much the only good thing about this pandemic! I wish I felt comfortable going out without mascara, but I’m not. I’ve spent too much time and money in search of a magical mascara that will give me long, lush eyelashes, but so far no luck.
Well, I’ve finally had enough of these itty bitty, barely there eyelashes. RapidLash is an eyelash and eyebrow enhancing serum you apply daily to promote the appearance of stronger, longer, and thicker-looking lashes. For the past month, I’ve been using RapidLash every night on my eyelashes.
RapidLash uses a thin brush applicator to apply serum right at your lash line. It looks a lot like liquid eyeliner, and if you can put on eyeliner, you can apply this.
Since I received both products from RapidLash, I tried its sister product RapidBrow at the same time. Thankfully I never did go for the over-plucked look in my twenties, but I would still love to fill in some thin patches. I mean, who wouldn’t love bolder, healthier-looking eyebrows?
The RapidBrow applicator is more like a mascara brush. You apply the serum to each eyebrow sweeping it through the brow hair, twice a day. RapidBrow absorbs quickly with no shine or weird texture. The serum helps to neaten up stray brow hairs, but don’t expect it to hold all day like a brow gel. (It also doesn’t feel hard or crunchy like brow gel.)
The instructions say to use these products daily to see a difference. Fortunately, applying both takes less than two minutes, and they fit easily into my usual bedtime and morning routines. Of course eyelashes aren’t particularly important in the grand scheme of things, but just a couple minutes a day to feel a little more comfortable in my skin again? Sign me up!
I’ve found my lashes are noticeably fuller-looking and even – dare I say it – appear slightly longer. I think I’ve been losing fewer eyelashes too. The difference is especially noticeable to me when I put on my makeup. No, I haven’t given up wearing mascara when I go out, but I feel like I can actually see my eyelashes now and that makes me happier.
After a month’s use, there’s still plenty of product left in both tubes, and I will for sure continue using them. I want to see how much better my eyelashes can get in another 30 days!
