L’Oreal’s Clinically Proven Lash Serum promises to “Take your lashes to new lengths with the easy to use lash booster serum applicator. Simply apply to the lash line every day and watch as your lashes become stronger, longer and thicker!” But does it live up to its promise? I’ve always been very skeptical when it comes to lash serums. They can be horribly expensive, and do they actually work? How much of it is all in your mind? Have you imagined that your lashes are fuller, longer or thicker? Well, I took before photos before I began using this lash serum, and the results speak for themselves.
I was lucky enough to get onto a Beauty Review trial team for this product before it was released into stores in NZ. After using the serum twice per day (morning and evening) for one month, my lash ‘fringe’ felt thicker and I was no longer losing eyelashes during the day or when I removed my make-up at night. My lashes feel longer, but I think that’s all in my mind, as when I look in the mirror they don’t really look longer than they used to, but there’s definitely more fullness.
L’Oreal’s Clinically Proven Lash Serum is enriched with castor oil, Vitamin B5, Filoxane and Hyaluronic Acid, which help to strengthen and reinforce lashes over time. This serum also helps to repair any damage caused by heavy (waterproof) mascara use, use of lash extensions or false lashes.
One thing that I don’t like about the applicator is that it has a brush tip, which was difficult to use in the beginning without accidentally sticking the bristles into my eye by accident. After I’d used it for a week or two, the bristles stuck together and became more like a liquid eyeliner applicator, which was much easier to use. Another thing was that it’s hard to tell how much product is on applicator and whether or not you need to twist the base to get more product to flow to the tip. One twist of the base is sometimes not enough, while two twists is too much and eyelashes end up soaked in product, instead of it just being applied like liquid eyeliner.
Initially this serum made eyelids itchy about an hour after I’d applied the serum, but the itchiness stopped after about two weeks of using the product. I’m guessing that it was just the serum drying on my skin that caused the slight itchiness, as there was no redness, no swelling, and no allergic reaction.
I’ve been using the serum twice daily for two months now, and I think the proof is in the ‘after’ photos. I’d recommend this serum and would definitely consider purchasing more, as it does work (my lashes are definitely fuller and don’t fall out as easily) and its way more affordable than dedicated lash serum brands on the market. If you’ve always wanted to try and eyelash serum but the price of LiLash or fLash has put you off, give L’Oreal’s Clinically Proven Lash Serum a try!
