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.

why not to use coconut oil: http://www.salisskincare.com/2013/07/26/why-i-dont-ever-use-coconut-oil-on-my-face/

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!

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.
