5 of the best growth serums for longer eyelashes

Come hither

Forget falsies – if you really want longer, stronger, thicker lashes, a potent growth treatment is the way to go.

The best on the market combine conditioning properties with peptide complexes to stimulate new lash growth, while nourishing the set you’ve already got.

With daily use, you should notice a difference within four weeks – some products claim even less.

1. Apot.Care Optilash Lash Enhancing Serum, $62

The online reviews speak for themselves – this potent, ophthalmologist-tested formula is ideal for sensitive skin and is said to increase lash growth by as much as 66% in 28 days.

2. Dior Diorshow Lash Amplifying Maximiser Mascara Serum Base, $55

Think hyaluronic acid is just for skincare? Think again – it’s one of the ingredients that makes this eyelash primer plump lashes so effectively. Use prior to mascara to curl and lengthen each lash.

3. Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara, $105

If you can’t bare the thought of adding yet another product to your routine, try this two-in-one mascara and lash serum. Yes, the price is eye-wateringly high, but when you consider that you’re getting both products in one, it’s easier to justify. The peptides in the formula are said to stimulate keratin to promote growth.

4. Talika Lipocils Expert Lash Enhancer, $62

People love this product online – a quick scan of the reviews and you’ll be tempted to add to cart. What’s more, the brand lays claim to the original lash growth serum, formulated in France in 1948 – so you can’t say they haven’t done their research.

5. Shu Uemura Lash Builder, $46

Shu Uemura know lashes (just ask anyone in possession of their cult-fave eyelash curler). Their Lash Builder helps to strengthen lashes to prevent loss and encourage growth.
