All about growing lashes and how they truly do grow!

The definition of what is considered beautiful changes over time and according to where a woman lives. However, thick, full, and dark lashes are a universal sign of femininity and sex appeal. A great set of lashes can instantly improve any woman’s overall appearance by softening her features, accentuating her eyes, and giving her a more youthful look.
I have three different methods of creating thick full lashes, from top shelf prices to complete budget. Now there is no reason why anyone whom wants beautiful lashes cant have them, just listen up ladies as the results are all remarkable.  Anyone who takes on this challenge, we would love to see before and after pics and any comments you have.
Okay a tried and tested Li -Lash, I have used this and can completely vow that this products has stunning results!! I could start to see results in less than 3 weeks and now my eyelashes would be a good 3 mm longer at 5 weeks!!! that is long in eyelash terms (Apparently they will get even longer).  There was a time when I would never step foot out the door without mascara for my fine blonde lashes, not now, I go out completely free of mascara and wear my naturals with pride!
 These type of hydrating and nourishing products achieve their often remarkable results through the use of extracts that have lectin-like activity. This makes these ingredients capable of stimulating the follicles to promote hair growth.

The next is Dr Lucas's Paw Paw ointment in the red tube, this stuff is magic on everything but apparently is amazing on lashes!  Today I met up with our amazing home grown and Internationally acclaimed soul singer Bella Kalolo, our team has had the pleasure of doing her makeup on Dancing with the stars, her album cover and many of her videos and promos. The first thing this song bird said to me was OMG Hil look at my lashes they have grown so much!!! and I have to say she was utterly right. Bella has been using Dr Lucas Paw Paw ointment which every evening she rubs a small amount across her eyelid and onto her lashes, she uses the last bit of residue on her under lashes and I have to say the results are amazing!. 
Bella is going to send me a before shot just so you lot can see the remarkable difference.

Last but not least, most of you will have these in your pantry, good old Olive oil or Castor oil.  Again you rub a small amount across the eyelid and onto the lashes and apparently the results are fantastic but I have yet to try this one.  Anyone that does, please let us know how it goes :)
Specific ingredients to look for if you’re shopping for an eyelash conditioner include hyaluronic acid, glucoproteins, and pro vitamin B5 (panthenol). When all of these are included in a single formulation, the product can hydrate your lashes, make them stronger so they can resist breakage, and actually stimulate growth.
Two key questions women have about eyelash conditioners are “How long will it take to see results?” and “How long will the effects last?” You should start to see a noticeable difference in the look, thickness, and length of your lashes after three to five weeks. And, as long as you look after your lashes, the results should last for months. Once you get naturally longer and more luscious lashes, you likely won’t even be tempted to grab a tube of mascara or a curler, products that deliver unnatural-looking results and can actually damage delicate lashes.
Happy Lash growing ladies :)
