L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum Review

I was excited to receive a pretty gold box in the mail. Clearly from L'Oreal I couldn't wait to see what was inside!

L'Oreal generously sent me their newest eyelash innovation to try out! I received three of their lash boosting serums, a booklet on how it works and a USB flash drive on more information! Pretty impressive marketing. I seriously can't get over the amazingness of the box.

I was excited to try the product out. I think it should be a good replacement for Ardell's lash growth product that is no longer for sale. The only thing that makes me a bit sad is that this product doesn't claim to grow lashes. I'm glad they don't promise it will do something it wont but I wish the product helped with that.

The formula itself contains Centella Asiatica Extract and Arginine to condition and protect lashes. For best results you should apply it in the day before mascara and at night before you go to bed. The applicator want is really cool! It's a plastic curved piece of plastic designed to treat the lashline and get your eyelashes from root to top. Its nice being able to just swipe the product over your eyes and not comb it through like you have to with a mascara wand.

Reviewing a product like this is hard because your not going to notice a MASSIVE difference. I've only used this for a few days but I'll tell you what I do like about it! When using it before mascara i find it really helps separate lashes. It doesn't weight them down, just helps mascara go on smooth. This product is a good choice to use under heavy duty mascaras like L'Oreals beauty tubes. That stuff is pretty harsh on your eyelashes, so any protection is good protection I think!

Overall its an interesting product! I'm happy to see the beauty world catering to the importance of healthy lashes!
