After several weeks of using this D.I.Y lash serum, I’ve decided to share the recipe with you (just because it actually works!). Not only is this serum made of natural ingredients, but it’s also pretty cheap to get everything you need to make it, which you would probably agree, makes things so much easier – who doesn’t like a good knock off, right?
I’ve applied this serum on my lashes nearly every night since I first made it and I’ve actually notice some amount of improvement. They are much thicker now and look slightly longer than what they were before I started using iy. The best part about it is, my mascara takes a lot better now too (that’s always a plus!).
If you want to give it a try yourself, then here’s what you need:
1. An empty container
2. Castor Oil – For thickness and growth
Castor oil is a thick and unscented oil which is full of proteins and vitamins. It helps promote eyelash growth while making them thicker and darker at the same time.
You’ll need about 20ml
3. Sweet Almond Oil – For moisture
This vitamin E enriched-oil helps add some moisture to your hair follicles. The more moisturised your hair follicles are, the less likely they will fall out.
You’ll need about 15ml
4. Coconut Oil – For growth
At this stage you probably already know that coconut oil has so many purposes (it’s like a miracle oil). In this case, the coconut oil will help with the hair growth side of things, it also smells amazing!
You’ll need about 10ml
Another thing I like about this serum is that you could easily use it as clear mascara. It really gives off a wet and dark look when applied properly which I think has a lot to do with the thickness of the castor oil (this must be the secret ingredient).
I’ve never been a huge fan of false lashes anyways, so using something like this (and a really good mascara) is enough for me to lengthen my lashes. If you decide to give these a try, do let me know how you get on!
Note: These oils should be available at your local pharmacy and they each cost no more than €5.
