Ever since I used mascaras back in 2007, my first mascara being Silkygirl's Lash Prism mascara :D I love how mascaras open up my eyes, giving it an illusion of bigger & sultry eyes. *wink wink* And of recent, I felt that my lashes weren't thick and long enough. So I googled on how or ways to make my eyelashes grow naturally without causing my wallet a big hole. I am totally hopeless in fake eyelashes and up to date, I only wore it twice in a span of 2 years (2010 - 2012). Haha!
So I stumbled on this lash serum from drugstore.com (a US website) and this had 918 reviews & rated 4 out of 5 stars! (as checked on 9/2). I'm WHAT IS THIS?? Clicked on it and read the reviews. My eyes were furiously scrolling through the reviews, looking for a reason for me not to purchase this magic serum. But no avail. When I converted the price to Malaysian ringgit, I was stopped in my tracks for a while.
Then I came to find that SHINS carried this product at their website here : SHINS Malaysia. I felt that I struck a gold mine! Once again, the price tag manages to stop me from clicking 'buy'. Or even 'add to cart'. Oh the woe. Anyway, I navigated to their Facebook page and it so happened that they were promoting Rapid Lash and were giving out free products to be reviewed. Oh how I jumped for joy and quickly email them my details. *tears of joy*
Okay. Story ends here.
Now I shall draw your attention to the product :
|Made in the USA by International Research Laboratories.|
Below are the information about Rapid Lash which can be found at their website.
|It has a mascara like wand but its tip is a slim brush which helps ease application close to the lash line.|
Below is a collage of pictures taken over time from the Week 1 to Week 6.

Apologies for the poor quality pictures. When I first started out this challenge, I was not technologically prepared. I only had my Samsung Ace camera phone to take the initial stages and when it was week 6, I decided to give in ask my bf to lend his compact camera. #behtahan
: Process :
I used this product for about 6 weeks and to be honest, I didn't apply it every night as suggested as there were nights I just couldn't be bothered because I was exhausted. But I did use the serum for about 13 days constructively, I do see results as my eyelashes were slightly longer and my mascara application became much easier.
Note : By not applying constructively for 6 weeks, nothing bad will happen except it will merely slow down the process. Which means that you won't be able to see the results fast.
: Aftermath :
Now, I have stopped using the serum entirely for about 1-2 months and I did not experience any eyelash loss nor my eyelashes reverted back to its normal sad state. This is the part that got me going,
"OOH. AHH. Interesting..."
"OOH. AHH. Interesting..."
*stroking my chin*"
I did not suffer from any allergic reaction which is surprising. Because I have sensitive eyes & I'm a contact lens wearer. Just last year, I had to change my lens solution from Baush & Lomb to Oxysept Hydrogen Peroxide Disinfection System as my eyes are allergic or reacts badly to preservatives.
: Overall :
I'm glad to announce that, this serum WORKS.
But then again, please note that the results varies from individuals as no human being on earth is the exact same :)
