In recent years, Japan has been trying to break into the highly competitive eyelash growth product market. One such company that has made such an attempt is Flowfushi Motemascara with their product The Matsuge Biyou-Eki Eyelash Serum, or simply Matsuge Eyelash Serum as it is known among Westerners.

The Matsuge Biyou-Eki Eyelash Serum
Matsuge Eyelash Serum promises an increase in eyelash length by about 8 mm. No amount of time to see effects was mentioned.
The serum’s effects are attributed to its ingredients, which promote increased blood flow to the eyelashes and strengthen and moisturize the eyelash strands.
The manufacturer also claims that you can use the serum as an eye cream or on your eyebrows.
Because there are many reviewers who claimed that the product is all-natural, we needed to verify this fact by actually doing a search of the ingredients.
We ended up finding the ingredients list in a distributor’s site on Ebay.
In truth, Matsuge Eye Serum is a combination of natural extracts and chemical compounds. It is definitely packed with eyelash growth- and strength-promoting peptides, namely:
- Hitoorigopepuchido -1,
- Hitoorigopepuchido -13,
- Hitoorigopepuchido -9,
- oligopeptide -24,
- biotinol noil tripeptide -1,
- octa peptide-2,
- acetyl tetrapeptide -3, and
- oligopeptide -20.
The natural ingredients are red clover flower extract, Panax ginseng root extract, white willow bark extract, chamomile flower extract, xanthan gum, honey, and Penchirengurikoru liquid yogurt (a type of milk).
The remaining chemical ingredients are Water, BG, glycerin, garnet end, pyrrolidinyloxy distearate amino pyrimidine oxide, panthenol, hydrolyzed keratin, water-soluble proteoglycans, water-soluble collagen, hyaluronic acid Na, hydrolyzed elastin, glucosylceramide, allantoin , α- glucan, dextran, lecithin, (acrylates / acrylic acid alkyl (C10-30)) cross polymer, Na chloride, phosphate Na, hydroxide K, pentetic acid, and phenoxyethanol.
How To Use The Matsuge Biyou-Eki Eyelash Serum
The manufacturer advises that you place a rice grain size drop of the serum on your finger and then apply it directly to your eyelashes every evening. Make sure that you wash your face first and remove all eye makeup.
Many reviewers claim that the Matsuge Eye Serum is expensive. It’s not, which goes to show that some people are not really doing their research. In fact, Matsuge Eye Serum is one of the more affordable serums you can find, costing only 2296¥ or approximately USD $21.00. With such an affordable price, I had to try it out.
Compared to other eye serums, Matsuge Eye Serum is a bit slow-acting in terms of eyelash growth. The first thing that I noticed in 10 days of regular use is that my eyelashes are definitely thicker and stronger than before.
It was only after 3 weeks of regular use that I observed my eyelashes are not only longer, but there are also new lashes growing. One good thing about Matsuge Eye Serum is its cute bottle. Unlike other products that use a messy applicator brush, the serum’s tapered tip allows you to squeeze just a tiny drop out.
Hence, less waste. In fact, the contents of the serum bottle lasted 3 months for me. Because the serum gets sold out quickly, I had to wait 4 months for the supplier to get two more bottles out to me.
But thankfully, unlike other products that result in a reversion of the lashes back to its original condition, I was able to retain my longer lashes with Matsuge Eye Serum.
If you’re not in a hurry to see your eyelashes grow long and full, Matsuge Eye Serum is the best product for you. Sometimes, it is better to have a product that may work slow but promises longer lasting results.
