Who doesn’t want long, thick lashes! I know I sure do. If you didn’t know, a long time ago I worked at a medical spa and had the opportunity to try out Latisse. I actually saw a difference in my lashes. I had to stop using it after a few months because it was too expensive to be repurchasing and my lashes went back to their normal length. Since then, I’ve been intrigued by how many other lash enhancing brands have hit the market.
I was browsing through the Sephora website back in September when I stumbled upon Grand Cosmetics and their feature enhancing items. I decided I would try the GrandeLASH MD serum and see if it would do anything for my lashes. According to the directions, it takes 3 months to achieve the full results of the product.
I’ve been using this for 8 weeks, just over halfway through the 3 month period and I thought I’d share my experience up to this point.
What it is
A revolutionary lash enhancing serum that promotes longer, thicker-looking eyelashes. (Sephora.ca)
$87.00 CAD (2mL). This is pricey, but it’s supposed to be 3 months worth of product.
My Lash Progress
You are supposed to apply this like eyeliner, close to the lashes but not on the lashes themselves every night after washing and drying your face. You apply one stroke on each eye. The applicator itself is very similar to a brush tip liquid liner. I’ll admit that I have missed days here and there but for the most part, I’ve been pretty consistent with the application. It feels like a wet liquid eyeliner for the first few minutes before it dried.
Did it make a difference?
When I look back at the photos above I don’t see a huge difference in the appearance of my lashes. Granted, because I was trying to stay consistent, the photos were taken in the morning in my bathroom which probably doesn’t have the best lighting. However, when I look at my lashes in person, I see a slight difference and when I apply my mascara I see an even bigger difference.
My lashes before are a standard length but the tips are blonde so they look shorter than they actually are. Now, I feel like when I look in the mirror, my lashes look darkened from root to tip. My Lashes feel really soft and almost thicker too.
It hasn’t had an adverse effect on my lashes, so I feel safe to use it until the end of the 3-month treatment.
I can see a difference if I compare week 1 to week 8. I’m not expecting a huge difference in my lashes, but even the smallest amount of change is a good one for. I’ll continue using this until I’ve reached three months and share an update on my progress.
Have you tried a lash enhancing serum? Do you think this will even make a difference on me in 3 months?
Lots of Love,
