I am always on the lookout for the new eyelash DIYs, and finally, I found this eyelash conditioner and hair growth that actually worked for me. Of course, this is also very helpful in growing your eyebrows as well.
I have been doing this experiment for a month now, and I will keep you posted with the outcome. So far, I could tell the difference with my lashes and can’t wait for the result in the next few months.
I did my first experiment with this DIY eyelash serum before and it did work for me as well. However, I wanted to alternate the usage of this new discovery to further boost the effect. I used to have sparse and thin eyelashes and even used the over-the-counter products but they caused irritations on my eyes from the formulas.
Why These Ingredients?
① Lubricant Eye Gel
Lubricant eye gel is an artificial tear to help with dry eyes. I accidentally discovered this product when I was experiencing a bloodshot eye after I got some makeup smeared on my eye.
So I tried to find some lubricant eye gel for an instant relief. More than a week of using this eye gel, I noticed that my lashes grow longer, so I got this light bulb idea. I could use this gel as a conditioning base for an eye serum, and it is safe to use overtime which was essential to me.
Biotin may have an important role in the growth and maintenance of your hair and nails. If you suffer from a Biotin deficiency, you will typically experience hair loss and brittle nails, and taking supplements of this vitamin may help to halt this process.
In many cases, taking a Biotin supplement may even help you to stimulate new hair and nail growth.
These soft gels contain additional ingredients like soybean oil and glycerin, to help my lashes grow fuller. Glycerin is an humectant and use in so many products from cleansers to moisturizers.
It brings moisture from the air to the hair and creates a protective barrier to hold in the moisture. While the soybean oil promotes hair growth and shine.
Here’s the Ingredients that I used for this DIY:
- 5 Biotin Liquid softgels (or you can use 8 drops of biotin liquid)
- 1/4 tsp of lubricating eye gel (or you can use lubricant eye drops)
- Cut open the biotin soft gels and add the lubricating eye gel in a clean/sterilized container. Mix well and you’re set.
- Use a q-tip or clean unused mascara wand and apply to your lashes and brows every night before going to bed.
To avoid allergic reactions, please make sure to read the label of any product you want to use.
If in doubt, do a test patch in your forearm and wait for 24 hours to evaluate your tolerance or to see if you have any reaction. If you do, stop using the product asap.
