Hey. Let me share with you my DIY eyelash growth serum I’ve been using for so long now. I always suffered from short, fragile eyelashes that tended to fall off very often. I have tried a bunch of eyelashes serums from different brands but what turned out to be the best fit for me was this DIY eyelash growth serum considered of 3 simple ingredients you can get at any pharmacy, drugstore, or online.
What you’ll need:
- castor oil
- Vitamin E
- Aloe vera plant
How to DIY eyelash growth serum:
Prepare your flask. You can use an old mascara bottle after you clean it up or get a small bottle with a brush – I got mine at the pharmacy where I work at.
Fill 1/3 of your bottle with castor oil of your choice – I don’t really have a preference it’s – all the same oil just the brand differs. You can get some on iHerb – one of my favorite websites with very fast shipping.
I recommend you can get vitamin E capsules on iHerb as well. You have to choose gelatine capsules and you’re not gonna swallow those pills. Next, you need to take a needle and pinch a hole into the capsule and let the vitamin E oil drip out of the gelatine capsule into your bottle with castor oil. I would say you need to use like 10-20 pills depending on the size of your flask.
The last ingredient you’ll need is fresh aloe vera leaf. There are plenty of tutorials online on how to extract aloe gel out of the plant. It’s quite simple and sooo satisfying. You would need just one leaf and scrape the gel right into the flask.
Some recipes online recommend you even blend the gel but doing so would only create too much liquify consistency and you want it to be gelly-like for easier application.
Shake the bottle with all of the substances and make sure you shake it before each application.
I store mine in the fridge so it would last fresh for a longer time.
Apply a thin layer to your eyelash roots or even the whole length of your lashes at least once a day – ideally at night-time.
The whole serum is oily and gelly like so you might have a sticky feeling having it on your eyes but unless you’re allergic to one of the ingredients or have sensitive eyes you really don’t have to worry.
It’s odorless serum – may be a subtle smell of castor oil depending on the brand you used.
My eyelashes are thicker, longer, and much stronger.
Applying mascara to healthy eyelashes adds a whole new dimension to my eyes. Mascara holds better and even the removal becomes much easier.
Totally recommending. It’s easy and it works.
Thank you for your attention
