Review submitted by our product reviewer Eleni
I read about a recently launched prescription formulation that is supposed to grow full, long, dark eyelashes with Brooke Shields as the official spokesperson. It’s called Latisse and the FDA has approved it for patients in the U.S., but Health Canada has not ruled on it yet for prescriptions to Canadians. Having lost the outer halves of both brows to normal (aging) hair loss and many lashes to brittleness, I knew I would love to try Latisse someday.
Imagine my delight when I was asked to try out a lash serum that promised to do everything the prescription product does using natural, conditioning, non-irritating ingredients.
Testing Lash Mantra Eyelash Growth Serum:
It was easy enough to use. For this review, I used Lash Mantra each night on clean eyeleashes for 2-1/2 weeks. I’ll continue using it because I know there are more subtle changes on the way and it likely will take a few more weeks to observe a full growth cycle.
I applied Lash Mantra two different ways – with my fingertips, rubbing the serum into my lashes and working my way to the base, and also using the applicator for the same coverage effect. I did this on my eyebrows as well, concentrating on the outer section where hair no longer grew.
Did I see any results?
Surprisingly, YES – I saw subtle results at the 2-week mark. There are a few short little hairs growing where my eyebrows were bare! My brows look darker too. As for my lashes, they look shiny and less brittle. They have grown a tiny bit.
Maybe I should have snapped a close-up “before” photo so that I can really compare. The real test came yesterday when my friend Dianne accused me of wearing mascara and makeup to our water aerobics class. I denied any such charge, but she didn’t believe me and went to pull at my lashes. HA! I thought when no mascara flaked onto her fingers. She looked perplexed. After that, I didn’t feel like telling her that I was testing Lash Mantra … maybe next week.
Would I buy it? YES
Would I replace my current eyelash serum? I haven’t used a product like this before. There was a different formulation that I tried a few times using a sponge tip applicator, but it was completely useless and ineffective. At least with Lash Mantra, I actually saw some results.
