A little about how the product works first. You apply the RapidLash to the upper lash line of your clean, make-up free eye. You apply it every night before bed and you should apply it at least eight weeks to get the best results. It’s also safe to use if you are a contact lens wearer, which I am.
I’m not a huge fan of putting things anywhere near my eyeballs because my eyes tend to get irritated very easily, so I was a little bit worried that I’d have some kind of reaction or irritation to the product, but thankfully I did not. I found it very light and easy to use, and the serum had zero odour to it, which I appreciated, a lot.
One of the main reasons I was curious to try out this product is because I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and I’ve had some hair loss, among a million other symptoms, and have been self-conscious about it. I wanted to see if I could see some improvement using RapidLash. Again, I know that eight weeks is the minimum amount of time to use it before you see any real change, so my expectations were low with the intention of continuing beyond the eight week period, regardless.
So, has there been any change in the first eight weeks of use? Personally, I do see some improvement, although I’m not sure it’s obvious to anyone else. Here are my before and after pics and let me just say, my before pic is taken at such a bad angle (and evidently blurry) and I didn’t realize how bad until I tried to photograph the after and realized I should have taken several angles. Live and learn I guess.
Here’s my BEFORE:
I know, it’s hard to tell because I don’t have the same angles for the before shot – but personally, I see the most difference with the shot with my closed eye.
So am I happy with the product SO FAR? YES! I plan to continue using it to see how it improves. It’s such an easy product to use so why not – honestly the hardest part is remembering to apply it. I had a reminder on my phone that would ring every night to remind me to do so, so it wasn’t that bad at all. I will say that there were four days that I didn’t apply it because I was away in Quebec City, and forgot it at home. Other than that, I was very consistent in my use and intend to continue it to see how it goes from here. Now if only I could get something similar for the hair loss on my head, and I’d be thrilled.
