Nowadays Instagram ads seem to be taking over and if you’re a beauty lover you’ve more than likely been presented with multiple ad serum features. In short, lash serums are typically clear balms and formulas that coat your eyelashes with nourishing and hydrating ingredients.
It’s more than justifiable to be slightly skeptical about any such product with claims such as lengthening lashes and adding volume. However, it’s worth noting that many serums have been formulated to specifically target lash breakage and shedding which can help the overall appearance and strength of your fluttery features.
There is currently only one FDA-approved lash serum on the market in the form of Latisse which is available on a prescription-only basis. This one of a kind product is formulated with bimatoprost, an active ingredient which helps your existing lashes to grow whilst stimulating new hair growth over 4-6 weeks.
For those wanting to start with an over-the-counter option, we’ve compiled a list of tried and tested products that do just the job of conditioning our lashes. Like with any new product, especially one near your eyes, be sure to patch test a small area first to check for any adverse reactions.
