Well my friends, the day has come. A little more than 30 days ago I embarked on a challenge of sorts to see if Rimmel London’s Lash Accelerator Serum actually works (you can read all about it here).
Just to recap, according to Rimmel London:
The new Lash Accelerator Serum is a fortifying and lengthening serum with GROW-LASH Complex that helps battle thin, short lashes and strengthen them. The serum helps to support the natural growth of beautifully long, remarkably strong lashes, with a hybrid applicator for precise application to lashes, lash line, or brows!”
“The GROW-LASH Complex works around-the-clock, with a conditioning and fortifying gel that helps to support healthy lash & brow growth. The serum approves the appearance of lashes, making them look longer and fuller looking. Also use it to create fuller, re-shaped and natural-looking brows. Quick-drying clear gel is lightweight and easy to remove.”
Basically it promises to deliver thicker, longer lashes in just 30 days. I used this product every night before I went to bed. I did miss one night but other than that I had this stuff on my lashes every night (I did apply the product one day before I started my challenge, so I did do 30 days).
Here is my before shot:
And my afters:
Okay, so my thoughts? I have noticed that my lashes are longer. If you compare the before and after shots, my lashes do look thicker in the before, that’s probably because when you apply the serum it tends to bunch lashes together. I didn’t scrub that hard prior to taking the photos. Personally, I don’t think they are any thicker but they are for sure longer. I have pretty thick lashes already, if you have sparse ones give this a try and let me know if it worked for you.
So would I recommend this product? Well, for $9.99 CDN you might as well try it. Like I said, my lashes do appear to be longer (especially the middle lashes). Even after 30 days I still have more than 3/4 left of the product, so it lasts a long time. Also, it is much cheaper than Latisse, so if you want something that will make your eyelashes grow longer, you might as well try the Rimmel one, for this price, what do you have to lose?
Have you tried Rimmel London’s Lash Accelerator Serum? What were your thoughts?
Please note: I did receive this product for review, however, it did not affect my opinions on it. All opinions are my honest own :).
