Before it went on sale in Boots last week, there were reportedly already over 1000 women who had placed themselves on a waiting list so they'd be first to get their hands on RapidLash. Since its arrival in Boots, the 'miracle' serum which claims to thicken and lengthen eyelashes by fifty per cent with daily use, has been flying off the shelves here in the UK.
|RapidLash is 'Flying off the shelves'.|
If applied nightly, the clear serum is said to make eyelashes appear significantly thicker after 3-4 weeks, with some users reporting a difference after just four days. FOUR DAYS?? Hmmm ...I'm saying nothing! One tube should last approximately 1-2 months and it's recommended that once you have achieved the desired appearance of lashes that you continue to use it to maintain their appearance. This can also be used on sparse eyebrows too and is also suitable for men to use.
The science bit: The active ingredient in the serum, prostaglanadin, is a compound which helps gells to multiply and replenish themselves. It is also used in treating the eye condition glaucoma.
There has been a huge scramble to develop a lash-lengthening product since it was noticed that eye drops designed to treat glaucoma had the side-effect of making lashes longer.
Like many, I love the look of long eyelashes but have real trouble fiddling around with fake eyelashes so this sounds like a great alternative. I've had a sample lying around for a couple of weeks now, but pulled it out for a good look today and have decided to bite the bullet and start using it as of this evening.
I'm still a little hesitant as the last thing I want are eyelashes that look like this. The things we risk in the name of beauty, eh? Hopefully I won't end up with 3 eyelashes on each eye or even worse, be left blind! In comparison to its competitors Revitalash and LiLash which cost considerably more, RapidLash is much cheaper but nothing is risk-free as far as I'm concerned. We all react differently to products - I just pray I have more luck than Laura (Lollipop26) did.
Have you tried it? If so, did it work for you? I wanna know!! I'll do an update post in a months time.
Sold exclusively in Boots, RapidLash is available for £39.99
