The word about RapidLash has been growing steadily since July of this year, in fact as soon as Boots got the exclusive rights to stock the American brand, a waiting list grew of around 800 women, all keen to get their hands on this latest innovation.
The way the serum works is that you apply the serum onto where the roots of your eyelashes naturally would grow, and after 6 to 8 weeks you should see a noticeable difference in the length and thickness. In fact, trials of the product have shown that RapidLash gives up to 50 per cent longer-looking lashes, so long as you use it daily for eight weeks.
Eyelash serums grew out of research that treated the eyes with eye drops for glaucoma. It was noticed that one of the side affects of the treatment was that the eye lashes appeared longer and thicker and since this, there has been an industry rush to get a mascara treatment that delivered the same results.
RapidLash as such, does not contain any growth enhancing drugs or chemicals, but as lashes are frequently subjected to abrasive wear and tear such as rubbing the eyes, using eyelash curlers and wearing harsh chemicals like mascara, anything that soothes and moisturises them similar to an ointment or cream will increase their size by hydration alone.
And I have a first hand recommendation for this product. I was lunching with my sister today and I noticed her fuller, longer and thicker lashes. Knowing she is a fan of eye lash extensions I asked her if she had them done again. She had not, and pulled out of her handbag a tube of RapidLash. Explaining how it works I was incredulous.
Her lashes actually looked better with using the serum than by having the extensions fitted. And you can wear mascara as you normally would with RapidLash, something you cannot do with eyelash extensions. Another plus point for RapidLash is that although it costs £41 from boots.com it lasts longer and is cheaper than having extensions fitted every two weeks for £40 plus. Check out the blurb:
RapidLash is an innovative high-performance serum that conditions your lashes to look stronger, fuller and longer in as few as 8 weeks. Lashes and brows are nourished and strengthened to fight damaging environmental elements and premature fallout.
RapidLash delivers essential proteins, vitamins, moisturising and rejuvenating ingredients that help replenish and strengthen the structure of lashes, while adding shine and elasticity. Apply RapidLash once daily in the evening before bedtime. Using the applicator brush, apply a thin line of RapidLash to the base of the upper eyelash, lower lash line.
