Coconut oil applied twice a day? Nope. (BTW now I'm hearing I was supposed to use vaseline. UGH. Maybe I'll take another 6 weeks from my life for that.)
Now we're on to RapidLash. Here are some pictures of the packaging. You can buy it at Ulta for $50 a tube or at Costco for $50 for two tubes. On Amazon it has amazing ratings.
So I applied this stuff every night for 6 weeks (Okay I missed 2 nights. And one I woke up at 2 AM and applied then.) You cannot wear eye make up for 8 hours after applying this and you MUST remove all of your existing eye make up before application. I'm starting to think that has something to do with its success. Many sleep in their make up and remove it the next morning. This is detrimental to your lashes and so just having a product that forces you to do that will automatically give your lashes a fighting chance. I unfortunately don't have that particular brand of laziness. Well mostly I just don't wear eye make up and I take showers at night.
And now for the reveal!
Yep: Nada. Nothin'. Zilch. No discernible difference. What a waste.
So I think I'll try vaseline next. Why? It's kinda a busy time in my life. Finding time for an eyelash perm (especially my first one ever) may be difficult in the next few weeks and I don't want to lose time on this adventure. Picking up a thing of vaseline is faster and I can apply it nightly.
Knock on wood for vaseline because if it doesn't work and I fall in love with perms/ extensions we'll have a budgetary problem. Eek!
