What is the best eyelash growth serum? How to grow eyelashes? How to stimulate eyelash extension and thickening at the same time?
If you ask yourself these questions, you are in the right place.
Today we answer these, and all the questions about eyelash lengthening and growth.
But not “randomly”, as I have often seen.
We will analyze in detail how a good eyelash enhancer must work, especially from the point of view of the ingredients. (Which must have scientific support, otherwise, just use freshwater).
Because let’s face it: we all want fuller, longer and more flexible lashes. What more can you ask an eyelash serum for?
So today we will see:
How many promises do we read in perfumery? The truth is, most of eyelash serum won’t work in the long run. We will see WHY it happens and HOW to recognize the ones that actually work.
1) Professional methods to stimulate natural eyelash growth
2) The ranking (which I periodically update!) of the best eyelash serums on the market
It is true that some products are useless, but it is scientifically proven that the right ingredients can deeply stimulate the growth of the eyelashes, so as to achieve results comparable to extensions.
I’m not kidding.
For this reason today we will see the 9 best eyelash manufacturers both for the quality of the ingredients and for the effectiveness of the results.
Science fact: how does an eyelash serum work?
An eyelash growth product should be able to stimulate hair growth.
For hair growth, the active ingredients of a product must reach the hair follicle and as such … should be regulated like a drug. In the same way an eyelashes growth serum will have to act the same.
Eyelashes live for about 3 to 6 months, and then fall out. The first 30 days constitute the eyelash growth phase, followed by so-called stationary phase during which the eyelashes do not grow any more.
The FDA (USA) and EMA (EU) allow eyelash growth products to be marketed both as a drug and as a cosmetic as long as they meet the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) requirements for both.
You may need to use different products to find the right combination for your skin type. Just as different people find themselves differently with lipsticks, foundations or creams, in the same way eyelash serums respond differently on different skins.
So, how do you grow your eyelashes using a follicle stimulation product?
In general, a high quality product differs from a medium-low level one for the possibility of being used in the long term.
… obviously without contraindications or side effects (such as rashes or dry skin, which are the most common cases).
Among the many cosmetic products, however, eyelash serum is one of those products for which it would be better to avoid “trying blindly”, because when going around the eyes it is always important to pay considerable attention.
Simply, science has now managed to find several ingredients that can effectively stimulate eyelash growth.
By relying on the right active ingredients (the results of which are approved by the scientific community), we will not be wrong. NEVER.
This is why my ranking puts the quality and safety of the ingredients first, even when it was time to select basically cheap products.
Also, remember that a 3 ml eyelash serum lasts on average 3 months. The maintenance of the results can also be obtained by using it only a couple of times a week, allowing even 4-5 months of use for 3 ml of serum.
So let’s do our evaluations!
Best Eyelash Growth Serum: TOP 10 RANKING
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Long4Lashes Review
10. Oceanic – Long 4 Lashes
Oceanic is a company based in Poland known for its products for the treatment of sensitive skin and special lines dedicated to pregnant women and babies.
Here here we meet Long4Lashes eyelash growth serum, a true bestseller in the European market.
According to the manufacturer’s formulation, there are numerous beneficial active ingredients. Honestly, in my opinion, there are two really useful ingredients for eyelash growth.
Allantoin and Bimatoprost.
Allantoin is an ingredient contained in many cosmetics and in some medical devices. In nature it is a substance produced by plants and animals, as well as by humans. It is an active ingredient with recognized healing properties and has been used for over fifty years in medicine and cosmetics.
Used for its soothing and anti-irritant properties, allantoin promotes healing, stimulating cell proliferation. More precisely, allantoin promotes the proliferation of fibroblasts and, therefore, the synthesis of the extracellular matrix. This is why it is an effective and nourishing ingredient for both eyelash growth and skincare.
The true king of the formula, however, is certainly bimatoprost.
In December 2008 bimatoprost was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use to stimulate eyelash growth.
It is a scientifically recognized ingredient for its ability to stimulate hair growth of eyelashes and eyebrows.
The follicles of the eyelashes have a structure very similar to the hair follicles of the scalp despite being less deep and regulated by a shorter life cycle.
The effects are hypothesized to be mediated by prostamidic receptors even if they have not been structurally identified.
The frequency of applications is once a day. A more frequent use is not useful because the scientific bibliography does not observe a faster growth of the eyelashes.
However, bimatoprost is at the center of several controversies, because it has side effects, among which the most serious are redness in the eye area and pigmentation of the iris (which becomes darker).
Although these cases are very rare, it is true that they have been reported and recognized on a scientific level. So it is a product that will certainly do its job very well, but that can bring some risks.
It must be said, to be honest, that these problems arise if the serum comes into contact with the eye. If it stays on the skin (as it should be) there are absolutely no problems.
Aqua, Pentylene Glycol, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Bimatoprost, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronate, Pantenol, Allantoin, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Disodium Phosphate, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Alcohol.
An eyelash growth serum that is a bestseller in Europe, because of the price really affordable.
The effectiveness, as we have seen, is real and scientifically documented, but it is equally true that it is not an eyelash serum suitable for sensitive skin. Bimatoprost, a key ingredient, is a powerful active ingredient that guarantees really high growth of the eyelashes, with excellent results. Unfortunately, it can lead to some side effects too.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Essy Naturals Review
9. Essy Naturals – Eyelash and Brow Serum
Essy Beauty is a brand of PureInc, a large cosmetic group based in New York.
Among the their most successful products ther is the Eyelash and Brow Growth Serum, a serum of a good level, both in terms of effectiveness and quality of the ingredients used.
The INCI, in fact, consists of a few, but effective ingredients useful for stimulating the hair bulb from which the eyelashes are born.
I find it difficult to accept the fact that INCI is defined by the manufacturer a “natural”, if only for the presence of hydrolized silk, which is a cosmetic conditioner of animal origin (and therefore must be treated synthetically).
Let’s look at the ingredients.
It is a formula very similar to others that we will see later (probably it is not patented), because it uses “classic” ingredients that guarantee at the same time a nutritious and irritation-free intake.
It is also true that collagen peptides in skincare are plumping and invigorating and, if combined with active agents such as antioxidants and moisturizing acids, they can provide preventive and long-lasting results.
Excellent the presence of Arginine, a classic when it comes to hair or eyelash growth.
The addition of Oligopeptide-1, which I studied recently, was interesting because I did not know its metabolic function.
This peptide belongs to a family of lipids capable of acting on distinct protein targets, including kinases, phosphatases, lipases and other enzymes and membrane receptors, and exercise distinct cellular functions. In this sense, that is what interests us, it is that they play a crucial role in the metabolic cycle of hair growth, as well as eyelashes.
Finally, the addition of Panax ginseng root extract is also excellent, a plant extract capable of stimulating the natural production of keratin, of which the eyelashes are made.
The final results of this eyelash enhancer are more than good, and allow this eyelash serum to distinguish itself effectively from most of the other eyelash serums.
Depending on everyone’s metabolism, results are visible already after 25/40 days.
In the long term the lashes remain in my opinion a bit drier and shorter than other products richer in active ingredients (especially aminopeptides). The thickening of the eyelashes, instead, it’s quite good.
It must also be said that this eyelash serum has the advantage, however, of having very few synthetic additives and of being completely alcohol-free, making it suitable also for dry skins.
Purified water, Alanine, isoleucine, Arginine, Glutamic acid, Serine, Valine, Lysine, Threonine, Aspartic acid, Histidine, Butanediol, Polygonum multiflorum extract, Nymphaea coerulea flower extract, Panax ginseng root extract, Hydrolyzed silk, Oligopeptide-1.
A well-made eyelash serum, capable of showing results after about 1 month of use. The presence of different amino acids guarantees a strong nourishment supply to the hair follicles.
The long-term results are good, even if they remain lower than other products. Given the complete absence of alcohol, it is particularly suitable for dry and sensitive skin. Overall, it is undoubtedly positioned as a strengthening eyelash with an excellent value for money.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Lilash Review
8. LiLash – Purified Eyelash Serum
Lilash is a US brand specialized in eyelash and eyebrow growth products.
Even if US based, it’s an eyelash growth serum well known in Canada, the UK and Australia. It is undoubtedly a high-end product, capable of guaranteeing results in a short time.
The INCI consists of a few, but effective ingredients useful for stimulating the hair bulb from which the eyelashes are born.
I appreciate the presence of Caprylyl Glycol which acts as an emollient avoiding irritation, as well as Lupine Protein which seems to be able to stimulate the natural production of the keratin, of which the eyelashes are made.
Sweet almond oil is also present in good quantities. It is a substance rich in elements important for the well-being of the hair: fatty acids, for example, which contribute to the hydration and nourishment of the hair; vitamins B1 and B6, which promote hair growth; vitamin E, which improves the microcirculation of the scalp.
The reason why I penalize LiLash a little in the ranking is the use of the controversial prostaglandin. In this case, we find it as Isopropyl Phenylhydroxypentene Dihydroxycyclopentyl heptanate.
Prostaglandins are kinds of lipids derived from fatty acids.
There are conflicting opinions regarding this ingredient. According to some ophthalmologists, the use of this substance in contact with the iris of the eye could lead to chromatic dysfunctions. It is absolutely not recommended for pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding!
According to several studies Prostaglandins are actually able to greatly stimulate the growth of the eyelashes, but they must be used with care. We have to avoid contact between the serum and the eyeball, limiting ourselves to nourishing only the base of the eyelashes.
Depending on everyone’s metabolism, the effectiveness is already visible after 10/15 days.
Water/Aqua, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Glycerin, Chlorphenesin, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Lupine Protein, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Fruit Extract, Silica, Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Isopropyl Phenylhydroxypentene Dihydroxycyclopentylheptanate
A renowned product, one of the best eyelash growth serums capable of showing results just after about ten days. The presence of Prostaglandins guarantees rapid growth of the eyelashes, but on the other hand it is associated with eye irritation.
Overall, it remains one of the best-selling eyelash serums in the USA, Canada and Australia, and is used by thousands of women every day without side effects. My advice is to avoid direct contact of the serum with the eye, staying close to the eyelid.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Lavish Lash Review
7. Lavish Lash – Eyelash Growth Enhancer
Lavish Lash is a Las Vegas company that has been operating in the eyecare sector for several years. I appreciate this brand because it combines natural and chemical active ingredients with proven efficacy.
Let’s see the ingredients.
The so called “biotin multivitamin supplement” is made up of a complex of vitamins H, B7 or coenzyme R which has an important function in regulating the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates.
Unfortunately, in this formula the concentration of Biotin is really minimal, so I am skeptical about the actual contribution of the ingredient.
Nevertheless, we find Ginseng Extract in good amount. Research has shown that ginseng could be beneficial for the growth of hair follicles. Thanks to the amino acids, vitamins, mineral salts contained in the root, Ginseg is widely considered one of the best revitalizers in stimulating eyelashes thanks to its revitalizing action. Ginseng is in fact used in products that stimulate hair (and eyelash) regrowth.
At the same time, we find Swertia Japonica Extract. This botanical extract contains high concentrations of natural flavonoids, antioxidants and metal chelators. Modern medicine has established that the plant extract has valuable properties in promoting promote hair growth and reduce hair thinning, (and of course the same goes for eyelashes and eyebrows).
Finally, in my opinion, the most important ingredient is the Myristoyl Hexapeptide -17 peptide, i.e. a peptide capable of promoting the growth of eyelashes and eyebrows because it can stimulate the synthesis of keratin hair. It is an ingredient of consolidated utility in the stimulation of length, density and strength of eyelashes, eyebrows and hair.
In short, we are talking about a high-quality eyelash growth serum, capable of offering a delicate but effective product at a reasonable price.
Given the price at which it is offered and the good quality of the formula, it is not difficult to understand why it has also become a bestseller on Amazon.
Purified Water, Sodium Chloride, Benzalkonium Chloride, Citric Acid, Disodium Phosphate, Myrostoyl Hexapeptide- 16 land/ Myrostoyl Hexapeptide-17 Complex. Hydroxyethylcellulose, Panax Ginseng Extract, Swertia Japonica Extract, Phenoxyethenol, Camly1 Gtycol, Imadazolidinyt Urea, Potassium Sorbate, EDTA, Hyaluronic Acid, Biotin.
An eyelash serum that I like very much, capable of combining antioxidants (Ginseng Extract) and moisturizing (Hyaluronic Acid) properties. Moreover, some ingredients (Hexapeptides) stimulate hair follicles growth allowing a noticeable difference in lash length just in about a month. Honestly, the stimulation of the eyelashes is not as high as other serums, but overall it will give good results. Perfect on sensitive skins.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Viebeauty Review
6. Viebeauty – Premium Eyelash Growth
Viebeauty is a well-known eyelash serum in the cosmetic field. Today it’s a bestseller thanks to the combination of natural ingredients with good efficacy and excellent value for money.
But the question is: is it worth it? My short answer is… just enough.
As always, let’s start by analyzing the ingredients.
The INCI is short, but with a strong natural impact and rich in nourishing amino acids. Alanine, isoleucine, arginine, serine, valine, lysine, threonine, cysteine … All these amino acids are really useful in the growth of eyelashes, as well as in the growth of eyebrows or hair.
Lysine, for example, is necessary to allow the hair follicles to function properly, thus triggering the hair growth process. Cysteine is the main component of keratin, making up about 25% of it. In fact, several studies have shown how the integration of cysteine can reduce hair loss. In addition, this amino acid plays a role in the health of hair follicles, as it protects them from oxidative stress.
Arginine, on the other hand, has a role in the production of nitric oxide, a fundamental compound for improving blood circulation and therefore promoting the right blood supply to hair follicles.
Also interesting are the additions of botanical extracts such as Ginseng root and Coerulea flower, which guarantee an excellent natural source of Vitamin A and vitamin E, essential for hair regeneration.
Finally, oligopeptide-1 is a peptide often used in ophthalmology. It is designed and applied because it acts during the growth phase of the eyelashes (Anagen) with intense capillary stimulation at the hair root. This allows prolonging the life of the hair/eyelashes much longer by prolonging the Catagen phase (precisely the life phase of the hair). The result is a general thickening of the treated area.
Ultimately this is a good eyelash serum. Many natural ingredients, plus a synthetic peptide of actual scientific value.
Physiologically, the stimulation of eyelash growth does not only happen thanks to the stimulation through vitamins and antioxidants (of which this formula is essentially made up). So, it will inevitably be a less “powerful” serum than others that we will see later.
In any case, the results have been certified by countless users who have recognized the effects.
The final evaluation is positive; I would recommend it especially for those looking for an eyelash serum as much as possible, which at the same time gives results of a moderate level.
Purified water, Alanine, isoleucine, arginine, glutamic acid, serine, valine, lysine, threonine, aspartic acid, histidine, butane diol, polygonum multiglorum extract, nymphaea coerulea flower extract, panacea ginseng root extract, hydrolyzed silk, oligopeptide-1
An eyelash growth serum that is having enormous success thanks to the mix of amino acids, botanical extracts and strengthening peptides. A great plus bonus is that this does not irritate eyes in any way thanks to gentle’s active ingredients. In about a month you will see a good improvement in length and thickness.
Perhaps an eyelash serum not as powerful as other ones, but ultimately well made.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Xlash Review
5. Xlash – Pro Eyelash Serum
Xlash is the best eyelash growth serum of the United Kingdom, particularly known in all Europe.
It is a very powerful eyelash growth serum and rich in stimulating ingredients of various types.
The formulation uses ingredients that work in order to influence the life cycle of the eyelashes (the only way to stimulate growth). The serum is in fact studied to stimulate the follicles, favoring the nourishment deriving from the blood vessels, in order to prevent their premature fall.
The formula, as mentioned, is very rich.
Among the ingredients that impressed me most, I find biotin, known to improve blood flow to the follicles and therefore stimulate their growth, also improving the absorption of nutrients.
Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract also known for its ability to activate hair follicles around the lashes, thanks to the high content of amino acids and polysaccharides.
And finally, also Pentapeptide 17 which is a clinically tested and studied peptide for its ability to increase the production of keratin at a cellular level in order to improve volume, strength, and flexibility of the “body” of the eyelashes.
Among others, I found the use of Lactis Proteinum interesting. It is an active ingredient used to carry out metabolic activities such as promoting the formation of healthy collagen fibers and / or an optimal skin matrix. Ideal therefore in an eyelash growth serum. It also appears that the active ingredient supports the immune functions of the skin, but several studies are still underway on this.
Overall, it is an eyelash growth serum that focuses heavily on the greater nourishment of the follicles, with the direct consequence of stimulating both the thickening of the eyelashes and the lengthening of the eyelashes.
In short, it stands out from all points of view as an excellent eyelash enhancer.
Aqua, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Alcohol Denat, Sodium Chloride, Panthenol, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Dipotassium Phosphate, Inositol, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Methylpropanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Potassium Phosphate, Lactose, Lactis Proteinum, Acetyl Methionine, Acetyl Cysteine, Sodium Citrate, Biotin, Benzoic Acid, Sodium Benzoate,Myristoyl Hexapeptide-5, Myristoylpentapeptide-17, Polysorbate 20, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract
One of the most famous eyelash serums in Europe. Xlash is an undoubtedly effective eyelash enhancer capable of “healing” the skin by avoiding inflammation thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. The application is very easy and causes no irritation at all. Within about 3 weeks it is possible to see the first signs of growth. In my opinion, an excellent product, a bestseller in Europe and characterized by excellent value for the quality.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Luxros eyelash Review
4. Luxros – Advanced Eyelash
Luxros is a US-based company specialized in eyelash or eyebrow thickening treatment.
We are not talking about a Bio brand, but in my opinion, a very “intelligent” brand, because in the formulation of the products it combines the awareness of limiting the use of the synthetic, with the practicality of using the latest discoveries of chemistry, when necessary.
The main ingredient is arginine, which we find in very high concentration. It stimulates the production of proteins, therefore it is also very valuable for the development and health of hair follicles.
It is in fact known that products containing L-Arginine reduce the factors that cause poor follicle development: it stimulates microcirculation by promoting the supply of nutrients to the follicle.
Arginine is known in many studies to promote hair growth and to protect against hair loss. It should be emphasized that even products with topical applications, as in the case of lotions with arginine, allow achieving this important goal. The main advantage is the stimulation of the microcirculation, which helps the nutrients to improve the health of the hair follicle.
The presence of a peptide that stimulates the growth of the eyelashes is also excellent. It is oligopeptide-1, an ingredient with a human epidermal growth factor produced by biological engineering technology.
From a biological point of view, growth factors (such as oligopeptide-1) are cellular signal molecules capable of stimulating cell growth, proliferation, healing and / or differentiation.
In terms of results, this Luxros eyelash serum is definitely among the best on the market. The effects are visible already after 2 weeks of application, and after 1 month the lengthening and thickening are definitely visible on any type of eyelash.
INCI is very natural, mainly made up of amino acids and botanical extracts, adapting very well to even the most sensitive skin.
Purified water, Alanine, isoleucine, arginine, glutamic acid, serine, valine, lysine, threonine, aspartic acid, histidine, butane diol, polygonum multiglorum extract, nymphaea coerulea flower extract, panacea ginseng root extract, hydrolyzed silk, oligopeptide-1
Luxros is an eyelash serum capable of remarkable efficacy with an unexpectedly ecological formula. In fact, over half of the ingredients are of naturals origins. The addition of peptides is very intelligent, which guarantees growth stimulation also from a scientific point of view.
The results are convincing, with a denser, healthier and stronger lash in about a month of use. I noticed also an improvement in flexibility and moisture. A product easy to use, gentle on any type of skin.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Realash Review
3. Realash – Eyelash Enhancer
Realash by Orphica is an eyelash growth serum designed and manufactured in France. It is one of the most famous eyelash serums in the world, also thanks to the intense marketing campaign used to make it known.
It should also be said that, among the many serums on the market, Realash is objectively one of those that works best, both in terms of lengthening, fortification, and thickening of the eyelashes.
But let’s go in order.
First, the formulation of the ingredients must be evaluated.
In Realash’s formula we find some medicinal herbs, from Calendula to Equisetum (an antioxidant). Serenoa Serrulata is also a medicinal herb well known for its ability to stimulate the growth of eyelashes (and hair).
However, the vegetable extract in greater quantities is clearly the Acorus Calamus. The latter contains B-asarone which is an active ingredient capable of influencing biometabolism in the supply of nutrition to the follicles.
THE CRUCIAL INGREDIENT, HOWEVER, REMAINS BIOTINOIL TRIPEPTIDE-1
Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1 is an ingredient studied and known scientifically for its ability to reduce the production of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), the main factor that contributes to male pattern baldness, increasing the speed of hair growth.
In the same way for eyelashes, it manages to stimulate the growth eyelashes in the anagen phase, which is the phase of active growth of the hair follicles. It also causes the fastest division of cells in the roots, resulting in the thickening of the total number of eyelashes.
Realash’s results, on balance, are concrete and fully reflect the quality and richness of the formula’s ingredients.
The serum, in fact, acts both on the length and on the quality of the lashes (intended as a thickening and greater elasticity).
The downside of using a serum like this from Realash is that the formula is very “powerful”, but also a little aggressive on the skin. It certainly depends on person to person, but the most sensitive or particularly dry skin may show that they do not like it if used for many consecutive months.
For a complete treatment, you will need one bottle every three months, so I consider the expense quite reasonable.
Aqua, Propanediol, Panthenol, Glycerin, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1, Acorus Calamus Root Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Dechloro Dihydroxy Difluoro Ethylcloprostenolamide, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Equisetum Arvense Leaf Extract, Hydrolyzed Silk, Linum Usitatissimum Seed Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Propylene Glycol, Serenoa Serrulata Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide
Realash is one of the most popular eyelash serums in Europe, less known in the USA. The formula of the ingredients is really rich and effective, as is the quality of the results. It produces noticeably thicker and longer lashes, like few other eyelash growth serums.
On some types of skins, it could feel a little “heavy”, but overall it deserves the fame it enjoys. After using it once a day every day for about a month, you will get real results, with eyelash that, in some cases, will almost look fake. Not joking.
Best Eyelash Growth Serum – Revitalash Review
2. RevitaLash – Advanced Eyelash Conditioner
RevitaLash is undoubtedly one of the best-known eyelash serums in the world, and I personally consider it one of the best eyelash growth serums Worldwide.
The birth of the company is curious. It is a company founded and directed by an American ophthalmic doctor since 2006. Originally the serum was a gift created for his wife, who was suffering from breast cancer. Since then, the serum has had such significant success in results that the RevitaLash company was created to put it on sale. By now, it is marketed in all continents of the world.
A note of merit is for the founder: in honor of his wife (who has been recovered) the company donates every year part of its revenues to breast cancer research, as well as organizing various information and awareness-raising meetings on the subject.
Let’s move on to the analysis of the serum.
Most of the INCI includes ingredients obtained from botanicals extracts. For example. Serenoa Serrulata is essential for the stimulation of the follicle and is also well known in its use for hair thickening.
Panax Ginseng extract is a natural antioxidant characterized by the high amount of vitamin B, which helps protect and revitalize the eyebrows (but is known as a foundation for stimulating hair and nails too).
This eyelash growth serum is objectively a very powerful mix of growth stimulants, but it manages to avoid synthetic preservatives, allergens and even alcohols.
Also, Calendula is a very appreciable addition: it is a natural humectant that helps retain moisture, ensuring greater flexibility to the eyelashes.
The heart of the serum, however, is the combination of peptides, lipids and amino acids contained in the formula.
It is defined by the company “BioPeptin Complex”, but specifically it is nothing more than the mix of Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1 (a scientifically fundamental peptide, which we have seen previously), Octapeptide-2, and biotin in high concentration present in the formula.
Ok, let’s get to the point.
This complex is why it is one of the few eyelash growth serums capable of adapting perfectly to even the most delicate skin, whether dry or irritated. Unlike others, for example, it is a serum that feels gentle and pleasant on the skin.
The results are simply at the top of the category. In one month both the thickening and the length are widely visible. At 2-3 months you can switch to maintenance, with applications every 2/3 days to maintain the results.
The vial in this way can safely last up to 4 months.
The defect? Unfortunately, it is expensive.
Aqua/Water/EAU, Disodium Phosphate, Glycerin, Biotin, Cellulose Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Phosphoric Acid, Dechloro Dihydroxy Difluoro Ethylcloprostenolamide, Butylene Glycol, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Serenoa Serrulata Fruit Extract, Camelia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Triticum Vulgare Protein, Pentylene Glycol, Swertia Japonica Extract, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1, Octapeptide-2.
For those looking for a top product, capable of strengthening, thickening and lengthening eyelash, as well as designed for sensitive skin.
Ingredients aimed at stimulation and thickening guarantee results already after about ten days. In addition, the absence of synthetic preservatives allows periodic application even for months (or years!) without the worry of allergies or nuisances.
I really appreciate knowing that part of the revenues is donated to breast cancer research. Unfortunately, it also remains one of the most expensive eyelash serums of all.
1. M2 – BEAUTE Eyelash Activating Serum
The M2 Beaute eyelash growth serum is the perfect solution for those looking for a powerful product that could really replace lash extensions.
It is a European product, made in Germany, with TOP quality and able to give concrete results in a short time.
Vegan, not tested on animals and dermatologically approved. The serum is formulated with a mixture of ingredients that work to stimulate the eyelash follicles and support natural growth. The most important are panthenol, biotin, hyaluronic acid, Glycoaminoglycans, and Noralfaprostal.
Panthenol is a pantothenic acid based chemical, also known as vitamin B5. It is used as an additive in various hair products around the world for its known ability to strengthen and stimulate the formation of keratin 8 (of which hair and eyelashes are made).
Hyaluronic acid prevents dehydration of the dermis, ensuring a greater supply of nourishment to the eyelashes (and in fact in cosmetics it is also used to strengthen the scalp). It is recommended for children who suffer from progeria, which causes dehydration of the scalp and hair loss, and is likewise an essential active ingredient in the context of eyelash growth serums.
Glycosaminoglycans have shown promising ability to stimulate hair growth in clinical tests. They lengthen the anagen or growing stage of a hair’s strand’s life cycle, thereby giving hair an extended period of time to grow, bringing a longer growth phase while also creating fuller, stronger lashes.
Methylamido Dihydro Noralfaprostal is a prostaglandin analog used to lengthen eyelashes. It is a somewhat aggressive ingredient and is the one that could be a bit of a nuisance on the most sensitive skin.
Overall, this eyelash serum is well known both in online ecommerce around the world and in the main physical boutiques. It is one of those products that manage to stand out from the crowd, both in terms of the quality of the ingredients and their effectiveness.
Growth stimulation is very good, especially in relation to the ingredients used, which are very delicate while ensuring very high effectiveness.
Honestly, I was impressed with the results.
Aqua, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrolyzed Glycoaminoglycans, Panthenol, Biotin, Hyaluronic Acid, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Triethanolamine, Acrylates, C10-30 Acrylate Crosspolymer, Methylamino Dihydro Noralfaprostal, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Sorbitol, Proline, Sodium Chloride, Alcohol, Sodium Phosphate.
A product that honestly worth the price. In my opinion actually one of the best eyelash growth serum Worldwide. In just 2 weeks this eyelash serum makes already a difference in fullness and length of eyelashes.
It delivers the best result, but if you have very sensitive eyes, it could be a little strong.
Anyway, be patient and judge the serum after about a month. You won’t be disappointed.
Eyelash serum: how and how often to use it
I often meet women who, wondering how to grow eyelashes as quickly as possible, decide to abound with eyelash serum thinking of being clever.
Don’t do it. In fact, when using an eyelash serum, please be careful. Quantity is not always synonymous with quality. Especially, in the fragile eye area.
Some eyelash serums, as we will see later, are delicate enough to allow several applications per day. But others may be too aggressive on the skin!
In general, once you have found the most suitable eyelash reinforcement serum for your needs, you must remember to use it regularly.
In the vast majority of cases an eyelash serum should be used in 2 stages:
- The first stage is that of true eyelash growth and thickening. Requires constant application of the serum, usually 1 time per day.
The ideal would be to wear the serum before going to bed, so that it can act during the night.
This phase of course varies according to the eyelash serum used, but always occurs between 1 and 3 months.
- The second phase is maintenance. Depending on the type of serum, the effectiveness of the ingredients and the response of our eyelashes, the maintenance phase can vary from 1 to 3 times a week.
It will be up to each of us to understand if the eyelashes length and thickness will endure also by decreasing the frequency of use of the serum.
Of course, this phase does not have a deadline. What I always recommend, however, is to always pay attention to the quality of all ingredients in case you decide to use it for several months … if not years!
Do eyelash serums really work?
We all asked ourselves at least once, let’s face it.
The conditioning treatments in eyelash serums contain ingredients such as peptides (which we will specifically see when we meet them in the various products) capable of promoting the nourishment of the hair follicles.
Furthermore, vitamins such as biotin (and in any case all those of group B), have the ability to strengthen the eyelashes, giving both a healthier and objectively volumizing effect.
We also often find amino acids (often associated with peptides) and plant extracts (such as ginger extract, pumpkin seed extract, and castor oil) because they are able to slow down the process of falling eyelashes, guaranteeing a greater total number of eyelashes during the cycle of birth-growth-fall.
Most eyelash growth ingredients work by hydrating and nourishing the skin at the base of the eyelashes. This, in turn, helps to promote the growth of healthier and fuller-looking fibers.
Of course, later on we will find serums with the most disparate formulas, some “simple” nutrients, others real retardants of the fall of the eyelashes.
What I can say with certainty is that YES, a well-made eyelash serum is a product that can make a real difference.
In some cases, we will see how some eyelashes respond so effectively that results could be easily compared to extensions.
Eyelash serum: quality is EVERYTHING
Eyelash serum is a product that we use in a very delicate part of the body, the eyes. For this reason, it is essential not to save on the quality of this type of product.
The result could be a nasty irritation or inflammation.
The best products are those using natural elements, vitamins, minerals peptides and other ingredients that are safe for the skin and the body.
With the use of a good serum, hair follicles are stimulated, but never irritated or inflamed. The growth takes place simply thanks to the greater supply of nutrients and the better subcutaneous circulation, stimulated by the serum. So there should NEVER be any side effects whatsoever!
I am not saying that there are no affordable products. I’m just saying not to jump only on clearly uncontrolled products.
So, here are the best eyelash serums, analyzed in detail and after countless tests and evaluations.
Each eyelash growth serum has been tested and monitored by me and a team of users. In addition, online feedback was also taken into consideration.
The ranking is periodically updated and revised, therefore some products may change!
