My eyelashes have always been short, straight and stumpy. So much so that I had considered getting semi-permanent lashes. I set out researching and found that they can actually damage your natural lashes, making them worse than when you first started…. still, I thought it’d be worth it in the long run and I’d just keep on getting them reapplied to avoid the bald-eyed look. Then I stumbled across a YouTube video reviewing Lilash and giving it rave reviews… as I searched on all I could find were good things, so this was the route I decided to go down.
Lilash isn’t available to buy in the UK as yet, although I know of one online shop based in the UK who is trying to become a stockist – if this comes to fruition I will be sure to let you know. You can buy it from Lilash.com, where you will be given a 90 day money back guarantee, or good old eBay. (Don’t forget if you are buying from abroad you could also have to pay customs charges). I bought direct from Lilash on their Black Friday Sale – if I remember rightly I got a 30% discount and paid around £70.
Lilash say that if you give them a video testimonial they will give you a tube for free – this was my plan but for some reason I never got round to it (that procrastination I spoke about earlier kicking in!) I wonder how soon they would actually get round to sending you your free tube anyhow seeing as the one I paid for was hard enough to get hold of. I waited ages. Ages. Weeks and weeks and weeks. I emailed them numerous times and tried investigating to get a phone number by using all their trading names inputted into Google, but kept arriving at a dead end. In the end it was a member on their Facebook page who gave me contact information for them. It seemed lots of people had had similar problems. Anyway, when I got through they said that my order had been cancelled (who knows why?!) but they sorted it out and within a few weeks my shiny new tube of Lilash was at my door (and yes I had to pay customs. Grrrr).
So – it’s a tube which is similar to a see-through liquid eyeliner. You have to apply it like you would a liquid eyeliner, at night before you go to bed and let it get to work.
I decided to document my progress via YouTube videos. The first video is so rubbish that I’m not going to bother linking to it – I think you can still see results from 2 weeks to 7 weeks….
If you can’t be bothered to sit through all of those videos let me summarise it….. it works. Really well. Before I started the treatment my eyelashes were so short that when I looked upwards none of my lashes went above the crease of my eye socket. By the 7th week nearly all of my eyelashes touched just under my eyebrows. The outer corner lashes were some of the first to grow, as well as the inner most lashes. The middle lashes were the last to lengthen but they did get there in the end.
The tube of Lilash lasted me around 9 weeks. My lashes didn’t seem to get any (or much) longer than they were at 7 weeks of use. Once I stopped using it I decided to just leave my lashes and see what happened. For 5 months my lashes remained super-long, then all of a sudden reverted back to their former glory. i.e. now!
If you’re looking to grow your eyelashes I really, wholeheartedly recommend this product. I think that Black Friday is in October so it’s not long until they’ll have a discount again. Their Facebook page seems to be much better maintained these days and there are even some promo codes posted every once in a while. Please let me know if you decide to buy it, and keep me updated on your progress – I’m really interested to see if it works as well for others as it did for me, or if it’s down to the individual.
