Hi, I was going through a thread the other day about a bee who uses a natural method to lengthen/thicken eyelashes…but can’t find the thread! I’m thinking it was either vaseline or castor oil, but honestly can’t remember?
Does anyone have any experience in this? Did it work? How often did you apply whatever you used?
Any advice for eyebrows would also be appreciated.

mdcmod: I don’t specifically use one of these methods. But, I have noticed that since I began removing my eye makeup with coconut or olive oil, my lashes are longer and thicker, and I don’t lose them as easily.
I think any oil will work, really, but I think what you’re remembering is castor oil. Oil will condition your lashes and help keep them moisturized, which means no brittle lashes, they grow a little faster, etc.
I also use a pure shea butter and jojoba oil blend as an eye cream at night. Makes my eye area so soft and moisturized!

mdcmod: I use coconut oil and I feel like it works! I’ve heard of using castor oil on pinterest but have never tried it. I actually use a mixture of coconut oil with a few drops of vitamin E oil

I know what pin you’re talking about. It was caster oil. I wouldn’t use coconut oil. While it works in the beginning it can severely clog your pores. I have been using a mixture of caster oil and grapeseed oil to wash my face. And I’ve noticed my lashes getting longer and thicker.

I’ve also heard great things about a drop or two of lavendar oil mixed into a tube of mascara.

I’ve heard great things about castor oil.
I use a non-natural product called NutraLuxe MD that has given me serious monster lashes and really works, but does have side effects. I’m going to be reducing my use to twice a week, and using castor oil the rest of the time as a conditioning agent.
Also, make sure to use a gentle eye makeup remover!

flowercrowns: is your eyelash method a prescription? If not, where do you buy it?
Soon2bmarried123: I actually think this is one of the methods I had seen on the precious thread! Will be giving that a try.

mdcmod: it’s not a prescription. I used to use Latisse but it didn’t really grow my lashes, but did make them fuller. I bought the NutraLuxe MD from my hair salon, after my stylist told me that her lashes were not fake, but grew after she used the product. I nearly fell out of my chair, haha! My mom and her friend each bought a tube as well, and their lashes have also grown really long.
You can search for it on Amazon. I was considering buying it on Amazon once my current tube is done ($120 at the salon vs $80 on Amazon), but I’m worried I’ll get a counterfeit product. If you’re in the States, you can just return the counterfeit if you get it, but from Canada, that + shipping/duties would negate any of my savings.
