10 Best Eyelash Growth Serums for Luscious Lashes
Mascara has always been an inseparable part of beauty routine and even before the invention of mass-produced mascaras; materials such as kohl were used in ancient Egypt to enhance eyelashes. Then there came fake eyelashes and most natural of all, eyelash extensions, to bestow beauty and grace to the demanding crowd. But the most recent and by far the best and safest solution to the thin, short and sparse eyelash problem, has been the introduction of eyelash growth serums to the cosmetic industry.
What are these magnificent charms in a bottle that people crave? Do they really work? Are they safe? Where in god’s name can we get one? What sorcery is this? Let’s set the record straight…
Eyelash growth serums are all the rage nowadays and users have reported satisfying results after consistent use of such products. They might seem too good to be true but the massive crowd of contented consumers may be the proof you need to start using those magic tinctures.
Eyelash enhancing serums will make you say goodbye to mascara goops and dripping lashes if you commit to using them. They usually function by helping the new eyelashes to grow denser and fuller and by hydrating the fragile ones. These two main functions of the serums can be granted through natural or artificial ingredients. The best eyelash growth serums contain two basic elements: some type of conditioner which moisturizes the lashes and another factor that would lead to the growth of hair. It all comes down to two ingredients: biotin and peptides. Biotin- or to be more familiar, vitamin B- along with peptides and collagen and amino acids should be among the ingredients of the serum you choose.
Nonetheless, the serum you choose only and ONLY works its wondrous marvel when used consistently and even by committing to it, patience is needed since the result may not appear until the 4th, 6th or even 8th week. You’ve got to have faith in it! Maybe the long duration of seeing results would make you have cold feet but think about it, isn’t it better to try some new way than never trying something that has the ability of ending your problems?
Don’t forget to consult your doctor before choosing your eyelash serum, because although many of them are suitable for all ages and all types of skin and hair, it’s better to check with your doctor for possible allergic reactions and optimal results. Stay safe and then seek beauty.

This product is only sold by prescription and contains hormone prostaglandin. Side effects such as reversible darkening of eyelids and permanent changing of iris color are on the list of this serum’s side effects, but it might not come as a shock when you know that the basis of this product is the treatment used for glaucoma.
- GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum
This serum claims to show results in 4 to 6 weeks but the full result appears in 3 months, that is why it comes in 2 sizes; standard, for 12 weeks’ use, and mini, for 6 weeks’ use. It is reported to make the lashes appear fuller and thicker by using Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate them and uses additional elements such as L-Proline and Glycosaminoglycans to strengthen the existing lashes.

It is one of the safest serums thanks to its organic components- courtesy of mother nature- and is cruelty free. But nature in a bottle comes with a higher price than the usual serums and it is reported to take longer than other brands’ serums to show results, so if you choose this, don’t lose hope, just be a bit more patient.
- Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die For Turbo Conditioning Lash Enhancer
This product is more of a conditioner than a full-fledged growth serum, which means its main job is to support the lashes, using peptides, to allow their natural growth. And no prostaglandins in the formula makes this brand safe, preventing common side effects of eyelash enhancing serums such as soreness and irritation than could be a pain in the “eye”, if you know what I mean…
- Revitalash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner

- Vichy LiftActiv Eyes and Lashes Serum
This is one of the most affordable serums on the market that works for your eyelashes AND the skin around your eyes. It contains classic hydrants like hyaluronic acid and moisturizing ceramides, which smoothens and moisturizes the sensitive skin around the eyes and with its peptides-infused formula, it reduces the wrinkles in the applied areas around the eyes.

- LILASH purified lash serum
LiLash promises its consumers silky and nourished eye lashes after 6 to 12 weeks of use. Although among its claims is more curled lashes, few users received such result by using this serum. Nonetheless it is considered one of the safe serums for sensitive eyes by ophthalmologists. LiLash has a 90-day satisfaction guarantee and will take back their serum if you weren’t happy with it. Another positive point for this serum is its lack of animal testing, making it a cruelty-free beauty product. Meanwhile there are many positive and negative points in the balance; one must always consider the price. This eyelash serum costs $90 for a 2ml. bottle, which is kind of over the top.
This serum is one of the most well-known products among its peers and is made in Germany. M2beaute’s ingredients are guaranteed to produce effective results in about 8 weeks but since it contains methylamido dihydro noralfaprostal or MDN, it is very likely to cause irritation and discoloration, so the sensitive eyes must avert themselves. This German product costs over $150 which is a very high price for only 5ml and is available on amazon.
We hope this article could help you choose your eye serum to get the fluttery lashes you deserve.
