Enter: eyelash growth serums, aka potent potions that come formulated with ingredients, vitamins, and technology abound to induce natural lash growth. Some are even designed to aid in the overall health of lash hairs by strengthening strands, making them less prone to breakage. The next big thing in the lash scene, or the latest gimmick? The answer, it seems, veers more towards the former, though it’s dependent on your formulation of choice. readyviewedTop lash serum developer, XLash Cosmetics, for instance, credits their product’s effectiveness to its unique blend of vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidant-rich plant extracts.

Still, that’s not to say you should expect instantaneous results by running this bad boy through your lashes every day. Studies conducted by XLash Cosmetics indicate that these slow-moving serums require at least four weeks to truly kick in; users will only be able to note a discernable difference at the 10-week mark. Results also vary according to individuals’ predispositions and, naturally, their product of choice. So what distinguishes a stud from a dud? We separate the wheat from the chaff, below.
