A few weeks ago, I promised a full 6 week trial of RapidLash. I have been pretty crappy about keeping you up to date, probably because you don’t really see much difference in the early weeks, you know? Also, I chose the worst time to do a eyelash serum trial. It’s seasonal change and my eyes are red, puffy, dry and itchy annnnd I was horizontal for about 1,5 weeks with the worst flu, while having a sick baby. Let’s just say that putting ANYTHING on my eyes wasn’t encourage or top priority, for that matter – I am sorry, I can’t human.
Full disclosure – about 2 years ago, I used a lash serum with similar promises. I saw results within the 6 week period but my biggest peeve was the active ingredients that made my eyes feel punched. Another beloved blogger showed her eyes swollen with a reddish purple hue that looked like she was going for a purple smokey eye. To say that I was hesitant about these results being similar, is an understatement.
I mean, I am all for fuller lashes but at what cost? Thinking back – I just don’t feel the bruising is worth it. Sure, it is only for the first 2 or so weeks, but I just don’t know.
The morning that followed my first application, I rubbed my eyes half-expecting that familiar bruised feeling. There was nothing. Then I started being weird and started questioning if it even works because clearly if you can’t feel it working, then it’s not – my brain, though, you have to worry!
I am not too sure if you can tell in this picture, but I have certainly noticed it when doing my makeup – my eyelashes seem fuller with some added length. It isn’t a huge difference, but then again, I don’t have a shortage of lashes. However, when I applied it on my brows for a week, I very quickly stopped because they were growing out too quickly and waxing once a week just wasn’t in my books. I love full, long lashes and the idea of having them without the need for falsies is bliss!
