Many eyelash growth products have come and gone over the months that I’ve been writing articles for this site. The more notorious products which have been taken off the cosmetic shelves are those that contain irritants, particularly prostaglandins and their derivatives and parabens which have been known to cause eye redness and swelling as well as eye color changes. For this reason, companies have been quick to stress the fact that their products don’t contain these harmful substances. A good example of such a company is Abbey St. Clare, which clearly stressed in their ads for Lash Enhance Serum for Lush Lash Growth that their product is paraben-free.

The benefits of Lash Enhance were presented in a straightforward manner by the company. It promotes lash growth and strengthens and conditions lashes along the eyelash line. Why the eyelash line? Apparently, the peptides in the product act upon the specific point where the eyelash emerges from the skin, thus strengthening it so that it does not easily break or fall out.

There are two peptides in Lash Enhance, namely Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 and Myristoyl Pentapeptide-16. It also contains natural extracts of Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root (Licorice), Camelia sinensis (White Tea), Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright), and Rosa centrifolia hydrosol. The product is enriched with vitamins like Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). Rounding up the ingredients list are Water, Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Allantoin, Panthenol, Pentylene glycol, Acrylates/C10-30, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, and Triethanomaline. Sure enough, the product does not contain any parabens or prostaglandins.

The manufacturer advises that Lash Enhance should be used every morning and evening for six weeks. After this, you can limit your application to every evening. To apply the product, simply use it as you would your liquid eyeliner. Dip the brush in the product and apply a very thin amount to the base of your eyelashes.

Since this is a new product, there are no reviews that I can find. Because it is affordable at $24, I decided to try it out for myself to see what it can do.

On first application, I experienced some stinging because I managed to get some into my eyes. After washing my eyes out, I tried again and, thankfully, there were no further uncomfortable sensations. I applied the product as instructed for 6 weeks. My initial observation during the first two weeks was that my eyelashes were healthier and shinier than before. But as I checked between the gaps of my lashes, I did not see new growth. By the fourth week, my lashes seemed lusher, but it was largely due to the fact that the lash strands have grown denser and not because there were any new eyelashes growing. At the end of the sixth week, my eyelashes were better conditioned, but it still disappointed when it came to the growth department.

As an eyelash conditioner, I would give Abbey St. Clare’s Lash Enhance Serum a high rating. However, if you are expecting to see some eyelash growth, you might be disappointed. Still, since it is cheap, you might want to try it out for yourself. I would like to hear your reviews of the product, especially to see if it worked for you.
