Product Review:
Lashem Measurable Difference Lash Gel Serum

Is it just me or did this weekend literally disappear? Is asking for a few more days too much?! I was sent Lashem Measurable Difference Lash Gel, 3.5 ml in a Birchbox a few months ago, and I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on its effectiveness over the past few 8 weeks. Just like every girl, I want long, luscious, and healthy lashes… and nothing bothers me more than layering on mascara to achieve such volume (I consequently end up with black residue all over my face for the next 5 days). LASHEM’s formula is a balanced combination of natural, raw ingredients (including biotin, green tea, goji berry, and grape seed extract) to deliver strength, antioxidants, and length to your lashes.

 

 

Although the “all natural” formula is a plus, I can’t say that I’m completely pleased with Lashem. It’s very pricey for what it is. I’ve been applying a layer to my upper eyelid and eyebrows every night before bed, and the results are on par with using regular Vaseline, which can be purchased for $1 almost anywhere. At a price point around $45 per tube… I just can’t officially recommend it. If no cheaper option proves effective for you, it’s worth a try! Otherwise… try one of the much more cost-effective tips below.

 

 

1. Apply Vaseline every night for conditioning. I also apply a thing layer in the morning, too, before putting on makeup. It provides moisture for dry and brittle lashes, while helping newer ones grow thicker, and in most cases, longer.

2. Stop wearing too much mascara… nothing plucks out lashes faster than over-caking it on, especially when using waterproof//long-lasting formulas.

3. Curl your lashes before applying mascara.

4. Oil your lashes with a coat of olive or caster oil. With time, these oils (including petroleum) will measurably increase the volume, length, and curvature of your lashes.

5. If natural alternatives prove ineffective, look into certain eyelash enhancing drugs, specifically Latisse. Latisse is currently the only FDA-approved product to grow longer, darker, and fuller lashes.

6. For one night of volume, I highly recommend false eyelashes (beauty queen necessity!). Ardell Fashion Lashes are cheap, found literally everywhere, and work like magic. If you’re willing to pay the money//unwilling to use temporary false lashes, eyelash extensions work wonders, too.

7. Test other eyelash enhancers, similar to LASHEM. Other options are OBAGI ELASTIlash Eyelash Solution, JAN MARINI Marini Lash, and SMARTLASH Eyelash Enhancer. These products were ranked the Top 3 Eyelash Enhancers by a leading dermatological website and  have surprisingly positive reviews from consumers. However, small tubes range from $30-125 per tube. So… yeah. No.

 

Know any other good eyelash tips? You know what Shakespeare says, “The eyes are the windows to your soul.” I’ll gladly take all the optometric preservation tips I can get.

 

My docs officially gave me the green light to start working out again, so today marks Day 1 of Hal Higdon’s Couch to 5K training.

    Thanks for the review! I've honestly noticed the biggest difference in my lashes when I've consistently used a good eye makeup remover. The less rubbing I have to do, the less lashes I lose!

    Hi Stephanie! This post is exactly what I needed! I have had trouble with my eyelashes being really brittle and falling out lately. I am definitely going to try the vaseline trick! I also started using this mascara from Peter Thomas Roth. I really like it and have already noticed that my lashes are getting thicker and stronger.

    So glad you visited my blog! I'm you newest follower on GFC!

      How did you like Latisse?! I'm thinking about trying it. I just use vaseline now, and it's a noticeable difference, but I'd like to amp up the volume if possible. Like I said, LASHEM wasn't exactly the best product for that…boo!

      xo,

      Latisse really grows your lashes, in fact, Jan Marini and revitalash used to have the same formula as Latisse until the government told them to take it out of their product. It is the glaucoma drug or medical name Bimatoprost 0.03%. I just told my girlfriend to go to a pharmacy and pick me up some, when she was in Mexico.

    LatisseDoctor.com sells Latisse at a reduced price online if you wanted to give it a try. They have an account with Allergan, so you're definitely getting the actual product and not a knock off. They have a lot of sales and promotions as well! Just a heads up for all the other Latisse lovers out there. 🙂
