Lash enhancers from your drugstore! Lise Watier, Dermaglow and Revlon

You've heard me go on about  RapidLash ad nauseam so I'm sure you've figured out by now that I am a big fan of the lash enhancing genre.  The only other one I have tried other then Mavala - which is impossible to find - was the L'Oréal serum - you can find the review here.  I love RapidLash, but I often find it hard to locate so I thought it was about time that I looked into other options since lots of companies finally seem to be coming out with versions of their own. I decided to avoid all of the super pricey ones from Sephora and concentrated my efforts on what was available at the drugstore.  Keep in mind, I haven't tried them all yet so if anyone has tried one of these or even others not listed and would comment on how they worked, that would be super helpful!

Lise Watier Duo Lash Booster - $55 - On one end is a lengthening serum which directly treats the root area to help stimulate growth thanks to its concentration of peptides.  Lashes are visibly longer after 2 weeks of daily use.  The other end is a fortifying treatment which complements the serum action while protecting and strengthening over time each lash thanks to its formula infused with Panthenol, vitamins A & E and botanical extracts.  Lashes are conditioned and shiny.  Boosted and fortified, lashes are visibly longer and fuller.

I started using it exactly 2 weeks ago because I wanted to see how well it lived up to the 2 week claim when I wrote the review - and to really put it to the test and because I ran out of RapidLash several weeks ago, I stopped using anything so my lashes are back to their more-or-less normal length.  After 2 weeks they are definitely longer, not crazy long or anything but they hit my glasses when I wear mascara, which my normal lashes don't do - that is my scientific test for these kinds of things.  I am very interested to see what the results will be after a couple more weeks of use as that is when you get optimal results with RapidLash.  I must say that I really like the double ended deal with this one - I like the extra step of applying something to my actual lashes as well as the root line.  I also like that the serum is in a clear tube so that I know how much is left - this is actually my pet peeve with most products that come in coloured containers!  I experienced no adverse reactions with my eyes so overall I am very pleased with it.  It could even replace RapidLash in my heart if these results continue - and I expect it will be easier to find!

Here are a couple of others I have noticed at Shoppers but haven't tried:

Dermaglow Lash Enhance - $60 - growth & conditioning treatment which is clinically proven for an up to 25% increase in the appearance of lash length in 2 weeks.  Strengthens, conditions and moisturizes to maximize lash & brow appearance.  Reduces the appearance of sparse and broken lashes.  Fortified with a natural peptide and vitamin enriched boosting complex.

I am a fan of the Dermaglow brand so I expect this will be a good one - anyone tried it?

Revlon Grow Luscious - $10.99 - in blackest black, black shimmer and blackened brown - mascara with a lash enhancing formula which complements the natural growth cycle of your lashes and improves their overall appearance and condition with each use.

I like the idea of a mascara/lash enhancing in one tube.  I know Christelle tried the L'Oréal one and liked it so I'd love to know if anyone has tried this one.

  1. Dermaglow Lash Enhance: I'm now at the end of the first 2 weeks and have noticed a considerable difference in thickness and length. I have sensitive skin plus allergies no problems with redness or swelling (I know some people who have used other brands and had a bit of both.)
    My only con is that the packaging leaks at the cap. This gets a bit messy and requires to be cleaned nightly around the cap. I've emailed the company regarding this and waiting to hear back.

  2. It's been 3 wks and I've yet to hear from Dermaglow regarding the leaking cap. After doing a bit more research on the company I can not find third party research reviews cause Dermaglow doesn't list the ingredients. I'm now a bit hesitant to try some of their other products.
    I do like the Lash Enhancer and from all the reviews by customers people seem to be very loyal.
