Tip Tuesday: Make This Lash Growth Serum

Posted by Alexandra C. | Tuesday December 31, 201316 comments

It always amazes me how much of a difference mascara makes. Eyes go from ho-hum to BAM! In your face! Having majuurr lashes creates larger eyes and puts the focus on those peepers. If only we woke up in the morning with mascara-like lashes all ready to go, amirite?! Well, actually, there may be something to it. While we've tried lash extensions and totally loved the results, extensions are not permanent and come with a hefty price tag. We recently heard about using castor oil for hair growth on your brows and lashesand did some digging to find this DIY lash growth serum (which you could totally repurpose to get Cara Delevigne-esque brows). It's packed full of oils and vitamins to promote growth and keep hair healthy. Ready to get fluttery, flirty lashes?

Here's what you'll need:

Castor Oil: Castor oil is easily absorbed into hair and skin, it contains omega 6 fatty acids, proteins and vitamin E. 
Sweet Almond Oil: Sweet almond oil contains monosaturated fats, vitamin E, magnesium and calcium.

Vitamin E Capsule: Vitamin E is also great for healing scarring. It's an antioxidant that helps build and maintain healthy skin tissue. 

In a small bottle or container with a lid, mix equal parts castor oil and sweet almond oil together, break a vitamin E capsule into the mixture. At night, use an old (cleaned) mascara brush to apply mixture (be careful not to over apply). Wake up and wash off! 

Have you ever heard of this? Is it something you would try?

Dermalmd Eyelash Growth Serum work on me!! Also, as an added bonus, I no longer have hooded lid eyes. I guess that’s a side effect, less eye fat. So crazy, but I look way different in a good way! Even my boyfriend noticed and he never notices anything haha I have sensitive skin and it didn’t irritate me.

I'm allergic almonds, so I'm pretty sure it's not a good idea to be smearing that around my face :p

I will try this. I find my eyelashes very thin, even though I'm in my early 20s. I suppose its because of my chemo or radiation therapy, but this seems like a great NATURAL product to make and try.

Nope. Castor oil... I haven't heard anything good about it so I'm staying far, far away from it.

Sorry but I have to be blunt and say that this is a mad BAD idea! Castor oil on, near or around your eyes is NOT a good idea, ever, under any circumstance, and certainly not for a "beautification remedy". Even when using it on your skin, like as a stomach pack, you should be doing it with some sort of supervision so as to understand repercussions - like with a naturopath or something. This is the scariest presentation on C.A. ever, and as an "C", I must advise like "A" that *DO NOT* mess around with YOUR EYES, sisters. You only have two - now or ever. Thanks always for your tips and tricks, but don't do this. Like @ shanaz says, lots of (possible) negative effects from the Castor alone.
