Recently I’ve noticed that my lashes are looking a little… flat. It’s something I mentioned in my vlog a few months back now and I was super excited when Xlash got in touch, asking if I’d like to try their eyelash serum. BUT, does it work!?
Eyelash Serum Review
I jumped at the chance to try Xlash out for myself. I have a friend that’s used it previously and her lashes look so long.. almost unreal! However, would it work on my own lashes? I have pretty long lashes, when they are playing ball but sometimes they can feel a bit short and thin. I would love to be able to wake up, curl my lashes and simply go because let’s face it.. since having a puppy, I don’t get all that much time to perfect my makeup!
Xlash works by prolonging the growth cycle of the eyelashes, as well as stimulating the hair follicles, which makes the eyelashes longer, thicker and darker – good news right?! You do have to make sure you keep up with applying the serum as regular use of the product is the key to quickly achieve a long-lasting result. At first this was a struggle for me because my memory isn’t the best! However, to combat this I simply set a little alarm on my phone every evening and it was a great reminder. You should apply Xlash an hour before you sleep (to let it soak in and dry!) for 4 weeks before you see results. At first, I would look longingly into the mirror and not notice a difference but THEN.. all of a sudden (so it felt!) I noticed my lashes looking longer but also thicker. It gave me the confidence to leave the house with just curled lashes and a clear mascara, which was such a time saver and confidence boost. Once I applied some mascara though, the effects were even more outstanding (you can see the results with mascara in my YouTube vlog, here!) I got so many questions about how my lashes were so long.. some people even asked if I had fake ones on!
So, let’s see the results shall we?…
As you can see to the right – on the after photos – my lashes have definitely increased in length but also look thicker! The thickness definitely helps when it comes to wearing less makeup, as they also appear darker too (Xlash does also contains colour enhancing ingredients, which I really noticed) Results for me definitely happened about 4 weeks in, but I will 100% carry on using the product to see how much more it can enhance my lashes.
For those of you that do already have extensions on your lashes though, the good news is.. the product is oil-free & wont resolve the glue, so you’re still safe to use it! This is great news for anyone having their fake ones removed, as your lashes will still be thickening up underneath!
How Do I Use It?!
It honestly could not be any easier…
It’s important there’s no traces of mascara so make sure your eyes are clean of make-up and if you wear contact lenses, remove them first.
Simply apply a thin strip along the line of growth on the upper eyelashes, using the applicator, which is small and so easy to use! (The product isn’t needed or intended to be used on the bottom lashes)
Give the product some time to absorb and try not to rub your lashes! Let it all soak in and don’t use any mascara for a while if you’re applying before getting ready. I found applying at night time the best though!
Use once a day for minimum 28 days for best results..
If you’re having some eyelash issues and feel they need a little help along the way, definitely give this product a go. I’ve always been skeptical that anything could improve my lashes, because.. that’s what we’re born with, right?! Nope! This product actually has dramatically improved my lashes, to the point that I have promised my own Mum she will get results if she tries it too! Infact, this is 100% a product I will be telling my friends about. Lashes make such a difference and it’s so nice to be able to wake up, curl them and go. I had previously considered getting extensions but was always worried my lashes would feel even shorter and thinner afterwards but now I really don’t need to bother!
