I'm back again with another review from Supermodel's Secrets! If you haven't already read my previous post, it's about Magic Heatless Curlers that I got from them last year. IMO, they are really friendly people who really put their heart and soul into pleasing their customers. They even sent me an angpao and card for Chinese New Year! *touched* So when I got the chance to work with them again, I happily accepted. :D
This time, I received a series of items from them for review purposes and I will be reviewing them one by one. These items range from hair to cosmetic items and I am honestly blessed and grateful to receive them. So remember to watch out for my posts!
The first item that I will be reviewing is the Ardell Lash Growth Serum.
How many of you (especially girls) have problems of short and skinny eyelashes? How about your eyebrows, think they're too sparse? Fret not, cos here's a simple and effective solution for you and it comes in a tiny bottle over here.
ARDELL was started in 1971 by Arnold and Sydell Miller in USA and is the world's leading brand for faux eyelashes. Besides that, the brand also carries strip lashes and other lash-care products. Ardell Lash & Brow Growth Accelerator is a concentrated serum that works to repair weak and brittle eyelashes and restore thickness to thinning and over-plucked eyebrows. This serum contains multi-proteins to increase growth and has additional conditioners that softens dry and brittle lashes to achieve fuller, longer and thicker lashes. For more information, you can check out the official site and read some third party reviews here, here and here.
The product comes in a 0.25 fl oz (7ml) tube which contains the applicator brush and white concentrated liquid. The key ingredient is peony extract and some wheat protein which apparently is not available in any other lash growth serums. The multi-proteins it contains works immediately to repair weak lashes and restore thickness to brows and lashes. It is made of 100% natural plant extracts and lecithin which makes it suitable for ultra-sensitive eyes. Added conditioners also makes the lashes softer. The white gel has a sort of viscous consistency, which may be why it is stated on the bottle that it is a "treatment gel".
This is the applicator brush, which is just a regular mascara brush for easy application.
Tip: What I usually do is use the tip of the brush to reach the inner corners of my eyelashes too!
Directions to use:
After cleansing face, gently brush on the serum on your eyelashes and/or brows, just like how you would apply mascara. Leave it on overnight and wash off in the morning.
Don't forget to apply on your lower lashes too!
The serum is scentless and colourless when applied. It feels weightless, like you did not apply anything on your lashes and it doesn't make the lashes clump together. I tried out the product on my eyelashes for about 7-10 days and I use it every night before sleeping and every morning without fail. Have not tried it on my eyebrows yet as I think they're quite full already, but if I do try it out in the future, I'll keep you guys updated!
First of all, I have typical Asian eyelashes that are straight and just WILL NOT CURL! :( There may be various factors affecting that though.. Anyhoo, I'd like to think that my lashes are already quite thick to begin with, but they are super weak and brittle cos when I rub my eyes, 9 out of 10 times my eyelashes will definitely fall out. Every time that happens, I'll feel damn sad..
BEFORE using the product.
Excuse my veiny lids..
AFTER using the product.
Eee omg why my skin so many bumps why my eye skin so wrinkly wan.
Can you see the difference?! It's only been a week and my eyelashes are now LONGER! I SWEAR this work wonders, even if it's not obvious in pictures. One noticeable difference is the lash serum has made my eyelashes STRONGER. It hardly falls out if I rub my eyes or tug the lashes gently now. As for thickness, I don't see much difference but I'm pretty sure with continued use, it will definitely yield more obvious results. My lashes also feel softer, after I wash the product off, of course. Fret not, your lashes won't feel super hard like after applying mascara.
The side view. Even my lower lashes are longer and thicker now!
OMG I can't believe the product actually works! Usually I am quite skeptical about products like these but the Ardell Lash Growth Serum has proved me wrong! And I can't believe how EASY it is to use. When you apply it, the serum leaves your lashes a bit hard and dry. But not to worry, it will go back to normal after you wash the product off. Actually I've tried applying mascara on top of the serum before and it still works perfectly fine.
Please remember to be careful not to poke your eyes when you apply the product ok, don't be like me. I accidentally poked my eye with the applicator and my eye swelled. -_- Not so good for sensitive eyes, I guess. But just be careful and don't rub your eyes when the product is still wet on your lashes..
For better results, use it for 2-8 weeks. Of course, results vary with individuals and what works for me, might not work for you. I've only tried it out for about a week and I'm loving it already, wonder how my lashes will be like after 8 weeks ~.~ Will it look like I applied mascara all the time? Hehe I'll keep you guys posted on my Twitter ok~ I love that it's so easy to use and the results is so good; it has become an indispensable part of my nightly routine now.
